  1. It (HF2) seems to be released, check your downloads page. Build
  2. HF1 was released around 2100z and we have still some hours today until then ๐Ÿ˜‰ For me, it's just kind of exciting reading people's interpretations of a very broadly speaking reply by LM. He could have given this answer days or weeks ago, this thread there exists for quite a while. Just relax. We will know soon enough when it drops. And I have a feeling it's not that far away anymore (now for real ๐Ÿ˜„ )
  3. I read it. And maybe I'm missing it, but I neither see any denying nor confirmation that the hotfix comes out today or at any other specific date. If somebody knows more, feel free to share your information ๐Ÿ˜‰
  4. Not that I care, it's ready when it's ready. If there are still bugs that take a little bit of time to fix, so be it. But where on earth did you read the words "no hotfix today"? Maybe I should finally get some glasses. ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. Seems like the smoke is still black.
  6. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ The second screenshot is the most interesting for me, I think we don't need your EFI/BIOS settings. Could you tell me what you find when you open "Andere apparaten"? These should be devices with missing drivers, there's at least one device, otherwise this "folder" wouldn't be there. I think we're getting close.. And maybe just to check, which drivers are installed when you look into "Opslagcontrollers"? I asked this before, but do you maybe have this particular "link" (Optional updates) on the Windows Update Settings Page like this? When I clicked on this, it offered me to install several Intel Motherboard Drivers, for example the mentioned Chipset Drivers. But if not, we'll find what you need elsewhere - but maybe you could try using this Windows Update functionality first ๐Ÿ™‚ Which system is it by the way? The 7940x or 8700k? Just asking because there are two in your signature ๐Ÿ™‚ Edit: Nevermind then, glad you found a solution ๐Ÿ˜Š
  7. Could you please start your "Device Manager" (Press Windows Key and start typing, it should appear otherwise it's in the Windows Control Panel) and maybe attach a screenshot of this window so I can see where drivers are missing? SATA devices not working are most likely the chipset drivers, because the motherboard chipset is responsible for your SATA connectors. If you reinstalled them correctly, they should reappear.. so this is strange. No worries, I'm sure your data is still there. ๐Ÿ™‚
  8. Sounds like some drivers need to be (re)installed again. Intel or AMD? Or better: Do you know which Motherboard you are using? What does โ€žWindows Updateโ€œ offer when you open it and click on โ€žoptional Updatesโ€œ? Usually youโ€˜ll find the latest chipset drivers here ๐Ÿ™‚ Edit: Sorry, I looked on the mobile website and there was no signature visible. Yes, I guess reinstalling the Intel Chipset Drivers will solve your problem ๐Ÿ˜‰ It should work through Windows Update, otherwise you can get them on the Intel Website.
  9. Environment Force is an Add-On which manipulates Shaders. Shaders changed with v5, so this doesn't work without an update - especially if you use TrueSky (Enhanced Athmospherics). Installing is not any problem, you can install whatever you want, like the mentioned PMDG planes which just work (the 64-bit versions for v4). But I can tell you for sure, that Environment Force won't work. There's EnvShade which got updated for v5. It's not the same as REX Environment Force but works quite well so far. The only other option is just to wait or manipulating the shader files manually.
  10. Actually, if you own the 747-8i and have it already installed in v5, the EFB in the NGXu will be functional again as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It just works after loading the Data (Base Scenery + Add-Ons) in the 747-8i. When you then switch to the NGXu, Performance Calculation should be available. Of course, this is just a temporary workaround for those who also have the 748, but maybe it's of help for a few of you out there ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. It seems (at least what I noticed), that TrueSky seems to deactivate automatically and silently in certain demanding condations, most likely VRAM related. Got this at a few FlyTampa Sceneries like KLAS, this is not related to Active Sky. You won't get any message but for me it worked enabling it again and it was back.
  12. Banned from PMDG forums because I asked when/where Aerosoft Customers can download the files or if I'll maybe just ask around ๐Ÿ™‚ Couldn't read Mr. Randazzos Message though, because banned user can't and it's not in the email notification. Title says "Advocation or participation in piracy" most likely because of the "just asking around". Cool ๐Ÿ™‚
  13. Actually, G-Sync has no lower frequency limit. The G-Sync Module can theoratically go down to 1 Hz, but it's limited by the Display used in the Monitor. Officially the Limit is at 30Hz, but G-Sync doesn't stop at this point. If the display isn't able to use the desired frequency, G-Sync just uses some frame doubling method. Thats most likely related to the brightness flickering on some displays when FPS get too low. And here are maybe some quality differences between the displays used in different monitors (because the actual lower limit of the display may vary), but I honestly don't know what's currently good and which manufacturer uses a certain panel type. If 30Hz is the lower limit, it works like this: 34 FPS = 34 Hz 30 FPS = 30 Hz 29 FPS = 58 Hz (!) Frame doubling due to lower frequency limit 31 FPS = 31 Hz So you see, if 30Hz is the actual lower limit on a certain monitor, the Hz will jump to 58 when you only dip to 29 and yes, I'm sure this can cause some weird effects. I don't know if it works the same with FreeSync (the Frame Doubling stuff, or if it will jump back to the default monitor frequency) when you go out of the limits though. I doubt it.

  14. I think it's highly individual what "low settings" are, but compared to people with newer CPUs, the settings may be low (You saw the screenshots, your decision). But they're good enough for me and higher as my v4 Settings. So while the new Sim not only looks better for me, I get a smoother and overall better experience. It's not just more FPS. So while I could list you my settings (and you would be even surprised maybe, because they are not that low), I think what everybody can translate from this is if you have a Display that supports it, activate the new VRR Setting and you will love P3D v5 HF1. I think it will be an improvement for everybody. You have to test it by yourself. Apologies, the whole thing is maybe hard to describe, but hand-flying in P3D now (even the big airliners) is so much fun. Almost like you got a new Honeycomb-Yoke or something else ๐Ÿ˜„ It's as smooth as X-Plane. All the years I wished P3D would be as smooth as X-Plane for me and this is actually true now. EDIT: I mean, I'm flying right now. ORBX Global + OpenLC, somewhere over northern Italy directed to Paris on VATSIM. This is how "low" it looks right now. FPS fluctuating from 45-59 in the VC. Sorry for the clouds (it's still TrueSky on Ultra), this is the FSRealWX until ActiveSky drops ๐Ÿ˜‰ I tried to make a video (because that would be better) but this doesn't work well. EDIT2: FPS even better with overcast cloud layer (Weather Update popped in) ๐Ÿ˜„ No difference in smoothness (super smooth)
  15. Yeah, it's amazing. I'm flying the PMDG 777 right now over Europe. I have a G-Sync Monitor and used the G-Sync Setting in the Driver all the years before. I "thought" it worked in the previous versions, because my Acer Monitor has a built-in refresh-rate display which seemed to be linked to the FPS in the past... it was still not smooth, though no tearing. But now with P3D v5 HF1, I deleted all my P3D related Driver Settings, V-Sync OFF, Frames Unlimited and VRR to on. It's too good to be true, it's buttery smooth with this setting enabled, just wow ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I always wondered why P3D "felt" so stuttery in comparison to X-Plane, but this is completly gone now. I'm constantly smiling, because I enjoy it so much. Textures crisp and sharp even on Cruise Altitude, doesn't matter if it's near or in the distance. Full Scenery with ORBX (Global + OpenLC + FTX Region), FPS is range is 40-60FPS in the VC (40 is the lowest I've seen but even this doesn't matter anymore, but now that G-Sync actually works you don't have to care about it anymore), 70-110 FPS External View. CPU is an very old i7-2600k @ 4,5 GHz, GPU RTX 2070. TrueSky enabled, Ultra Cloud Texture Resolution. Yes, due to the old CPU the FPS are fluctuating, but that's where the VRR Options really helps, you just don't notice anymore. Seems like locking FPS and messing around with FTFF is now obsolete with native VRR support. Feels like I upgraded my PC. I never thought this would be possible, but I'm really happy with v5 now. Only ActiveSky and some official plane support is missing, otherwise.. Nice.:)
