  1. Does anyone know how to set the heading indicator/gyro (not the heading bug) in the carenado Pilatus pc 12 in P3D v4? (realistically, without using the "D" key...) 😉 Thanks.
  2. Does anyone here have an overclocked OEM GTX 745 4gb? I dont have much experience with overclocking so i apologize if I say something that makes no sense or sound like I have no idea what I'm talking about (which is true, I don't). Is there a recommended overclock that can be installed? I'm not really interested in tweaking anything, and I definitely don't want to do anything to risk permenately damaging it, but if there is a known safe "preset" or something to get a few extra fps in p3d 4 then I'd be interested. Just looking to see if others have experience overclocking this card. Thanks for any input.
  3. When it comes to OS, I think there's nothing wrong with having something older. I don't like windows updates, they seem to be constantly causing more problems than solutions, and I believe due to windows updates my computer has gotten slower and slower over the years, and I'd say now its about 25% the speed of what it was when I first got it a few years ago. It's disappointing that you really cant disable them in windows 10. I think windows 7 is an overall good OS. Even if it becomes unsupported I dont think that would change anything if your sim/ software is compatible. Only time it might be neccicary to upgrade is if your doing something like MSFS 2020 which requires it.
  4. I've also found myself feeling I can't keep up, having many other intrests other than flight simulation. I've decided I'd stop trying to keep up, and just be happy with where I have things. I have a not so great pc with a GTX 745. I run P3D v4, have quite a few orbx sceneries, A2A planes, carenado planes, environmental addons that I have accumulated over time. I have my settings tuned so it runs with borderline to good (25 to 35 FPS) performance on my PC with the addons, and I am very happy. I have no intension or desire to get any new sims, I'm perfectly content with P3D v4 and the addons I have, and I don't want to invest large numbers into new hardware just to be "caught up" with the latest software when its not really that much better to justify upgrading hardware IMO. I now like it where I can have it set where I come to my pc when I want to sim, open it up, grab my favorite addon plane at my favorite orbx airport, and have it work. Rather than always be updating stuff, which seems to be such a hassle because your spending 40% of your time ( at least) trying to get everything to work and 60% (at most) actually flying. I have auto updates disabled on most software and will only update stuff if I have a good reason to. Never just to be "up to date". When I have spare time, I fly, and it all works, and I have a generally good experience, never have to worry about being up to date.
  5. Dxdiag still shows no problems detected when starting it after a reboot. I think we've concluded my vcard is inadequate. Thanks everyone for your help in troubleshooting this.
  6. Thanks for the input everyone. I am aware my video card isn't the greatest. Wow you are right 745 seems close to 770 but 770 seems waay faster. 770 even seems faster than the 1050ti (I have considered upgrading to a 1050 ti in the past). With the settings tuned properly my 745 does run P3D v4 with REX, A2A planes and orbx scenery at 25 to 40 fps so I'm content with it for now. I'm not extremely exited or motivated to use MSFS enough though to justify getting a new vid card, it was more of just an experiment to see how it compared with P3D. I got it though gamepass so no financial investment lost if I cant get it to work. But I'll try anything I can to mess around with it. I ran DXdaig just now and all the tabs say no problems found. Am I supposed to be starting MSFS at the same time I run DXdaig or have it open during the crash? Thanks.
  7. Just updated the video card drivers, that actually did not fix it.... Still have a similar error in event viewer. (still d3d11) Faulting application name: FlightSimulator.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x5f6cce4b Faulting module name: d3d11.dll, version: 10.0.18362.387, time stamp: 0x7e72d1cb Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0000000000170900 Faulting process id: 0x320c Faulting application start time: 0x01d6a0dcac7092e0 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.9.3.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\FlightSimulator.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\d3d11.dll Report Id: 94661190-5a11-4100-89a4-97211dbe2195 Faulting package full name: Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.9.3.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe Faulting package-relative application ID: App Any ideas what else could be the issue. I just noticed that the minimum specs is a GTX 770 or better, I have a GTX 745. So I'm close but not quite there. Do you think this might be the reason for the CTD? I would think even if I do not meet the minimum requirements it should still at least open and run the UI... even if it couldn't render in flight.
  8. Ok, thanks, I must have missed that switch. I'll take a look next time I fly it. Thanks.
  9. I did check and there is a new video card driver available. I will update and report back. I bet this will be the fix.
  10. Are you referring to the switch at the base of the throttle? When starting the Pilatus PC12, the procedure is throttle at cut the whole time, mixture (condition ) lever at cut, starter on, 13 NG (N1) put the condition lever up to a ground position. I noticed this model doesn't have a mixture/condition lever in the cockpit (or at least that I have found).... BUT the funny thing is my mixture lever on my saitek quadrant does have an effect... So I'm wondering is this incorporated in the throttle switch or am I missing something?
  11. Thanks for the reply. No overclocks. I just tried starting it again to look for the event viewer entry, I get this at time of crash. Faulting application name: FlightSimulator.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x5f6cce4b Faulting module name: d3d11.dll, version: 10.0.18362.387, time stamp: 0x7e72d1cb Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0000000000170900 Faulting process id: 0x1d18 Faulting application start time: 0x01d6a0b7de4b0384 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.9.3.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\FlightSimulator.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\d3d11.dll Report Id: d4238d25-28f4-47db-9b4e-3f4f568aedc3 Faulting package full name: Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.9.3.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe Faulting package-relative application ID: App Anyone have any ideas what this could mean? Thanks.
  12. Thanks, I tried that. I ended up getting it to work by moving the fuel selector around. It was on both to begin with, but I had to drag it around for the first startup to get it to work. Now it works fine.
  13. MSFS 2020 is giving me a CTD during the loading bar after the press any key screen. Watching task manager there is a quick spike of the GPU up to 100% right before it crashes. Ive tried to reopen it many times and only about one out of 20 tries it made it to the flight configuration screen. And even that one time it still CTD'd after hitting fly. I have the latest version of windows and MSFS. Does anyone else have this problem? I read something saying that a potential fix could be to rollback to a previous version of windows... Has anyone who has this problem tried this? Thanks.
  14. I have the "Cessna U206G Soloy Mark 1 V3.0" by flightport installed in P3D v4 Does anyone here who has this aircraft know if there is a trick to starting the engine? Fuel is on, power switch is set to ground, I turn on the battery and the starter, I hear the starter sound, the oil pressure comes up and the N1 comes up to about 11, but the engine doesn't start. the starter sound just keeps looping. I did run the installer for XML tools per the link in the readme also to no avail. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? It doesn't even start with ctrl+e. There is a L VAC R light on if that means anything. Also I got a "flying tip" pop up saying fuel is critically low in selected tank. But the gauges show full and when I go to the fuel and payload screen it all shows full.... mysterious. If anyone knows how I might be able to get this working it would be much appreciated. Thanks, Caleb
