    Windows 10 1803 or Greater No Screensaver

    I've been having the same problem for a couple of weeks or so too. I suspect it has something to do with the nvidia overlay as well. About the same time I started using it the problem started. justanotherpilot: I guess the Asus Game tweaker is a card-specific utility then? I'm just selecting the 'Sleep' setting when I walk away from the computer till I can find a solution. I've checked the "powercfg" reports and don't see any wake requests. A while ago I found that the Chrome browser would keep my computer awake if I had any paused Youtube videos open. Such a pain...just work, please 😕

    747-8 Crash-To-Desktop (P3D v4)

    And, once I did this I could load straight into the PMDG 747's. To be clear, I was getting CTD when trying to start with the 747-8. Once I loaded the default flight and then loaded the 747-8, I could from then on load straight to the 747-8.

    fsl 319 released

    I'm old and dumb. Now that's out of the way, how do you find your downloads on the FSL site? I struggle with this every time. Thanks.

    FSL back at it again

    What, in the name of all that's good, is wrong with these guys?

    Texture Issues (Black and Incomplete Loading)

    I realized after lying down for the night that I hadn't been clear on this. Sorry. I was taking about the Frozen Surface option in Orbx Vector. In my case, the problem seemed to always be on water surfaces. Unchecking this option worked, in my case.

    Texture Issues (Black and Incomplete Loading)

    Thanks, Zeljko. I'll give it a try. I tried it and that fixed it for me. Should have known. Thanks again.

    Texture Issues (Black and Incomplete Loading)

    I too have this issue in some areas. Seems to be Orbx Europe in my case. I'll be interested if anyone can suggest a cause and fix.

    Carenado and Les Saab 340 Comparison

    Thanks for this. Interesting information about Carenado FSX aircraft's ports to X-plane. I'll have to try one out. I just assumed they were straight ports...

    Froogle's take on FSW and possible impact on P3D

    This. All respect due to Fruggle, but I think he either pulled this out of his hat or he said this for motives only known by himself. Personally, I found it uncomfortable for this youtuber to be dipping his toes into conspiracy-land.
  13. I'm very excited to hear what this will be. Baring the PMDG moniker, I'm sure it will be top-notch. Could it be a new flight sim platform? 10 years? Looking forward to whatever it is.
  14. I agree with the above statements. I have the same computer but with 32 Gb memory. Sounds like you have a good CPU. Running at 5.0 with those temps is very good. Do you recall what CPU voltage you're using? I found that 4.9 Ghz with synchronized cores and hyper-threading set to On works best for me. Doug, after all was tweaked as much as I felt like tweaking (a tiring job for me), I dove into the fan controls. (FanXpert 4, in my case.) I ended the cycling fan speeds by making adjustments there. I kept AI Suite 3 open and ran (for example) P3D4. I noted where the temps where a good load would occur. Then noted where the idle temps where. Then, I adjusted the custom fan curves so the fans would kick up just before the temperatures where P3D4 runs. Now, I don't really notice the fans, as I'm usually concentrating on flying and there's none of that darn fan cycling going on. I hope that makes sense.
