    AVSIM Server Funraising Drive

    Why are you still using physical servers, or rather why would you want to upgrade to another physical server ? Would it be not more economical in the long run to switch over to a cloud based hosting service ?

    Performance drop after upgrading to P3D v4.2

    System is Intel i7-4720HQ @ 2.6GHz NVDIA GTX 860M 4GB 12GB RAM Running P3D off the HDD Windows 10 Home I know its not a beefy system, but it used to get the job done fine with P3D v4.1
  3. Hello, I just had to reinstall P3D from scratch, due to some scenery loading issues, and upgraded to P3D v4.2. This is a completely clean install, except for the A2A Commanche installed. Earlier, I used to be able to get a smooth 25fps in the PMDG 737, with ORBX Global, and payware scenery. But now, after the reinstall, the frame rate wont go above 20, and is usually around 15. This is in the default Mooney, at the default P3D startup airport. I have tried editing my affinity mask, FFTF entry, turning off shadows, but it still wont go above 15-20 fps. Also, earlier, when running v4.1, the CPU use on the main core (core 2) used to above 95%, with other cores chipping in when loading scenery. Now, with v4.2, the main core wont even go above 60% for some reason. I have no clue what is causing this, and how to go about diagnosing it. Any help is appreciated.

    Addon-Folder P3Dv4.2

    You can. In each subfolder inside the Prepa3d v4 Add-on folder, you will find a add-on.xml file which contains the location of the addon. You can move those addons to any drive on you computer as long as the add-on.xml has the correct location of the folders. An example of that can be found here :

    Can my system Run P3D at a good FPS?

    My system is quite similar in terms of CPU clock speed. I get a smooth ~25-30 fps with the PMDG 737 + heavy weather at detailed payware airports (FT EHAM/OMDB), as long as I turn off all shadows and no DL.

    P3D getting stuck on the splash screen, at 6% terrain data

    Hello Elaine, I tried the steps you suggested, but still didnt get it to work. When I tried to uninstall P3D, the uninstaller would get stuck at uninstalling the Scenery component. Even when using the program linked above, I was able to get rid of the Client, and Content, but even that program gets stuck when trying to remove the scenery program. It been stuck at this for the past one hour now. Please advise how I can proceed with the uninstallation ? My P3D folder is empty, and the generated files and folders have also been deleted. Thanks 9W

    HELP Please: Serious Control Problem with P3D v4.2

    There is also a throttle axis calibration utility in the Majestic Q400 control panel. Have you tried that ?
  8. You're mixing up Pro ATC-X with Pilot2ATC. ProATCX is IFR only.
  9. 1. Pilot2ATC is very good for IFR flights, SID/STAR assignment done by the program, and based of weather. Also has an option to monitor and operate the radios during cruise if you want to step away from the PC for a while. But, it does not support VFR flights at all. 2. For offline AI traffic I hear UT Live is good. 3. For voice interaction with crew and ground services, I would suggest Multi Crew Experience. It works with a lot of aircraft and has a free demo too. It does everything except interact with ProATC X.

    Flight Sim Laptop?

    I'd suggest taking a look at Clevo resellers in your country. They make laptops with PC hardware and are customisable and upgradable, provided the chipset will support the next gen hardware.

    P3D getting stuck on the splash screen, at 6% terrain data

    Hi, No, actually. That was before I ran the delete all generated filed command. I followed the instructions one by one in the order listed. I've spent a fair amount of time today on this, so I shall continue tomorrow. Thanks for your help. Cheers 9W

    P3D getting stuck on the splash screen, at 6% terrain data

    I tried all your steps, except I couldnt find these files you mentioned : Prepar3D_Default.fxml \ Prepar3D_Default.wx. . I'm still stuck with the same problem. Is there anything short of uninstalling I can try ?

    P3D getting stuck on the splash screen, at 6% terrain data

    Did the changes you suggested, with Notepad++, but P3D still skips directly to the loading. Any ideas ?

    P3D getting stuck on the splash screen, at 6% terrain data

    Direct to the loading screen. No menus at all. Will try this out. Thanks for the help.

    P3D getting stuck on the splash screen, at 6% terrain data

    How do I enable/disable the scenario menu ? I've never loaded a saved scenario from outside the P3D menu.
