  1. 4.2 Update

    Thank you for this, but in the video, he deactivates P3d during the client uninstall, I didn't deactivate mine, should I?
  2. 4.2 Update

    Since this was the first time that I updated my version of Prepar3d, from v4.1 to 4.2., I would like some clarification if I did things correctly: I followed the instructions from LM on the downloads page. First off, I uninstalled the Client and reinstalled it and continued with the same process for the scenery and content. However, do I also need to uninstalled and reinstall my entire P3d application as the last step? Or am I good to go? Kind regards,
  3. Dynamic Lighting!

    Good points, Milton; it really does vary system to system. Anyways, since my first post, I realized that it was actually a high SSAA setting that was the culprit of my low fps, especially with the landing and taxi lights on full blast. I went from 4xSSAA to 2xMSAA and noticed a considerable improvement in FPS and smoothness. In terms of locking in my FPS, I've noticed better performance on unlimited and kept it as such, would you recommend otherwise?
  4. Dynamic Lighting!

    What a sarcastic comment! Although the "Dynamic Lighting" feature is an attempt at realism, it does NOT disable lighting. I would advise you to do some research before posting up a response in this forum, Mitch.
  5. Dynamic Lighting!

    After a considerable amount of time spent experimenting and attempting at tweaks, I've finally decided that the costs of the "dynamic lighting" feature of Prepar3dv4, in terms of performance, far outweigh its benefits. How many times have you experienced studders and low frame rates during your most critical phases of flight, i.e attempting that blissful flare prior to touchdown? Well, it felt amazing to uncheck "dynamic lighting" in my graphics settings and get that smoothness back, without even having to wait for my sim to reload :) Please tell me about your experience, are you running it or not? Is there any hope for "dynamic lighting" at the end of the dark tunnel? :)
  6. I couldn't find anything in the PMDG Manual for the 737-NGX concerning joystick settings such as sensitivity. If anyone is using Saitek Pro Flight Yoke, please let me know what settings worked out best for you? And I do understand that issues such as the aircraft's tendency to pitch down during turns are realistic.
  7. Active Sky Cloud Art or REX

    Paul, I concur with your skepticism and outright rejection about claims of "3D Clouds etc." But let's hope for the best; when there is a will, there is a way :) And yes, relative to all the other weather "engines" I've been using (mainly Xenviro for XP11), AS runs very smooth and doesn't seem to be having a major performance impact. No wonder a lot of XP11 simmers have expressed interest in the product migrating to their "side" :)
  8. Chaseplane question

    Yes, while running the replay in ChasePlane's experimental build, you can select different camera angles as you would while running in real time.
  9. Any news on 4.2 update?

    I hope they implement better stability, improve autogen loading, and reduce studdering!
  10. I'm running ASCA with Active Sky and Envtex textures and hearing a lot about the popularity of REX products. Which one do you prefer? Or is it a combination of both :)
  11. Just bought their Palo Alto airport and wondering if anyone has their Airport Enhancer HDX? What do you think of it? I like the fact that they have a money back guarantee: shows confidence!
  12. Prepar3dv4: PilotEdge CTD

    Really appreciate your assistance: yes, I did rename those files and waiting for PE to open up to test if it solves my issues. I believe those files were originally created for the 32 bit and as such, causing issues with Prepar3dv4. As for XP11, I had to disable the default AI aircraft, in order to avoid any CTDs.
  13. Does anyone have experience dealing with CTDs that may have been caused while on PilotEdge?
  14. How to Reinstall Add Ons?

    Thank you, Jim, for the valuable advice and information. Kind regards,
  15. After going through the steps required for debugging recommended by LM, one of their recommended steps is to: "Delete the following generated folders/files. This will result in any add-ons being removed/disabled. %PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 %LOCALAPPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 %APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4" Ok, so the last time I did this, it took me a few hours to reinstall all my addons via Windows Add/remove programs feature. And I am quite certain that there is an easier way to reinstall all my add-ons. Can someone please tell me how to do this? Kind regards,
