  1. I have removed P3D from my older computer in favour of FSX SE. This has left literally hundreds of scenery registry entries behind as follows: P:\PREPAR3D\Scenery .... etc. p:\PREPAR3D\Scenery .... etc. I would like to remove them ASAP but I can't find either P:\ or p:\ Is there a way to remove all of these entries using the REG command from an Administrator's command window? If so can anyone contribute the correct syntax relating to these REG_SZ keys? Or a batch file? Many thanks, Ian Chattan

    Transition to Prepar3D

    I have used the FSX and FS-Steam platform for many years, but would like to upgrade or transition to the P3D platform. However, there are so many options on the pricing page (license) that I’m really not sure which is best for me. My goal is to incorporate a simulator that will enable me to fly the new Aerosoft Airbus Professional Series, which will not operate in the FS-Steam environment. I will appreciate any recommendations from experienced P3D users. Thanks!
  3. Hello, I have recently installed Reshade into P3D V4. It works perfectly with all PMDG products, however when loading up the QualityWings 787, I experience severe problems within the virtual cockpit. The shaders appear to overlap and create a bright white flickering image, distorting the entire cockpit. This only happens in the VC. The exterior camera angles all function as normal. Any ideas to help fix this would be great! Thank you.
  4. Hi everyone, I need to ask if somebody knows how to solve one problem for freeware Soloy U206 downloaded from Rikoo website. Plane is working perfectly, but as you can see in a picture, windshield is full of some white boxes/pixels, i dont know how to call that, but it can be seen in photo below. I whant to get rid of this boxes, but dont know how. Please help. Thank you in advance!
  5. Hey there everyone, My name is Justin and I'm new to AVSIM forum. I figured id make a post about some question that I have in regards to P3D and was hoping I'd be able to find some answers or the very best recommendations. So I've been a huge fan of Flight Simulators for sometime now, I dabbled in FSX for many years, mainly just flying planes around and enjoying view. But one thing that i became very aware of real quick was that FSX being as old as it is, there are for sure limits. So after doing some researching and watching 100's of videos on various different sims, i decided to go with P3D. Seeing how they are continuously providing new updates along with being very similar to FSX, i thought it was the better move to make for me. I tried X-Plane 11 but was not really digging it. Anyway's to make a long story short I recently upgraded my PC and i want to throw some beautiful visuals at it. I've looked into many different options such as Orbx, Rex, Toga, HiFi Active Sky etc. I do know they are all different in many ways. I recently purchased Orbx North America, HD Trees and some other little things. Asking the community here, what would be recommend to get the best visuals possible for my experience. One thing i cannot stand is when watching these YouTube videos where the author doesn't provide ANY info on the add-ons they are using, which can extremely misleading. So i wanted to ask you guys what you'd recommend for the best visual experience from scenery upgrades, shaders etc. Thanks for your time and help in advanced!

    My Saitek Pro Flight Yoke Hat switch does not work when I push right, left or down, only up. OS Win 10 Pro, Sim Platform is P3D v4.2. I tried to send a question to P3D, but their site will not allow newbies to post until they are more active on their site??!! What every that means!! It sounds ludicrous, but true. After I installed A2As C-182 all worked well. The next day the hat switch did not work properly. Also I noticed that the resolution could not be change from 512 x 512 within P3D even after I pressed default which goes to 1920 x1080 then reverts back to 512 x 512. I contacted A2A but they said it is not there software but the hardware which is causing the problem. I could uninstall the 182 but A2A makes the most realistic simware. Also, reinstalled P3D v4–no change. Even though I checked the controller which showed the hat switch working in all directions (??), it still does not work in P3D but it does work in FSX. I don't understand why this is happening since the A2A C-182 is approved for P3D v4. Is there a glitch in P3D. Any suggestions short of uninstalling C-182? Pat

    P3D Startup problem

    Hi all, I just recently bought a new pc and P3D worked find when i first installed it. After trying to make some joystick calibration changes the game suddenly crashed and everytime I start it up it comes up with the message that Prepar3D exe has stopped working. I can't work out why it's done this so randomly just from a joystick calibration change. I was having problems with the controls before it crashed as the rudders were not responsive and the joystick felt stiff and the game randomly froze when control imputs were excessive. Maybe my joystick is too old for the game? It is from at least 2005. Can anyone help me as I am extremely confused right now? I've uninstalled P3D including the addons such as PMDG and Active sky and it's still giving me the stopped working message. Many thanks
  8. Hello, I was reading that people managed to get OTHH working on P3D V4, but I have not managed to. Could someone help me please? I have pointed the installer to P3D V4. James RIsby

  10. Hello to all, PrecipitFX installation with FVX Central has been done regularly on Prepar3D v3.4 and v4 with activation code but the PrecipitX effects only work on Prepar3D v3.4 while on Prepar3D v4 remain effects by default. I uninstalled and reinstalled PrecipitFX only on Prepar3d v4 but the effects remain the default ones. Ciao to all Roberto

    Prepar3d V4 question

    First post: So I am thinking very seriously about getting back into flight sims. I used FSX and IL2: Sturmovik years ago and wanted to hop back in. I have yet to purchase anything. I have a pair of older Saitek rudder pedals and X52 flight stick. I expect to fly more GA type aircraft, potentially as part of getting a Private Pilot license. Seems like the CH Eclipse yoke might be the best bang for the buck, along with my existing rudder pedals. Beyond this, the computer and Prepar3D, what else should I be looking at getting? Probably payware 172 and/or PA-28 as those are likely training planes. Regards. Mike Kirda
  15. Hi My Name is Jean-Philippe and i go by JP, 26 years old. I am living and working in Germany as a Mechatronics Engineer in Automotive Industry, I am aviation passionate just like many of you. As a main sim i use P3DV4 (left v3 recently) and my first sim was combat flight Simulator followed by fs9, then fsx then p3d. I also recently jumped into the virtual reality in P3DV4 which is a big step and manage to successfully use it (at least for me) for online flying with PMDG stuff. See you later
  16. Hello Everyone, I need some help with setting up my sound configuration. I have always flown using 2 headsets, one for me and one for my dad(Co-pilot ;)). After starting a new flight today ( LOWW-EHAM) I noticed I wasn't hearing the engines, I was able to fix that. But then I wasn't able to hear the clicking sound you would hear from the switches. So I started looking on the forums, I saw a post where people were recommending to use a speaker and a headset, speaker for p3d and headset for ATC sound. I thought that would be fun to use. So I grabbed my old speakers and plugged them in. Strangely, they did not show up. The speakers are a bit old, and both of them have a separate connection. Can anyone help me by telling me how to get my sim sound on the speakers and the sound from VATSIM/Vpilot into both headsets? Thanks in advance. Kind regards, Olivier
  17. Just recently bought and downloaded ORBX Dubrovnik and the ORBX scenery is overlapping with the default scenery. I do not have FTX Vector downloaded and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Dubrovnik several times. Help!?
  18. Hi all. Sorry if this is a bit of a long read, but I thought I’d share my sim story. (Scroll below to *** to skip the long text and go straight to my point). I fell in love with flight simulation when I was about 8 and borrowed Flight Simulator for Windows 95 from my uncle, installed in on the family PC and took off from Meigs on the C172. Being a kid, I did not know FS98 and FS2000 existed and kept flying passionately with my old simulator. When broadband internet was finally available in my house I learned about FS2002 and all that I had been missing. I skipped FS2002 (there was simply no way to get it where I live in South America). I remember just looking at screenshots and reading how people were enjoying the sim. I wanted it more than anything in the world. A couple of years later my parents were kind enough to buy me a copy of FS2004 and though my PC could handle it only half decently, I tried to enjoy it as best as I could. I was having the best time of my life. It was something I genuinely enjoyed more than anything, and learned a great deal. Even got to fly the complex PMDG planes. I’ll never forget staying up on long summer nights crossing the Pacific Ocean from L.A. to Tokyo. My old AGP 128mb ATI card could not handle all the graphical beauty I was seeing with other people’s builds. When FSX came along, not only did I have a PC in the brink of dead, but I could not afford to build a rig to run the simulator. Even at its lowest settings it was unflyable. My dream of ever getting a nice flying experience with decent graphics just died and turned into bitterness. Through the years I followed the development of this hobby from afar, reading here and there about the latest. *** I’m 27 now. After many years of longing for a nice simulation experience, reading about it, watching videos and reading many of your guys’ FS adventures and nice flights — and after graduating and obtaining my MBA (and saving money) — I’m finally able to afford a computer that will allow me to go back to doing what I love without worrying about 5 FPS when landing. I’m building a nice rig for P3D V4, and I’m as excited to get it running on my computer as when I was a kid. I’be been an AVSIM lurker for years. I’m finally getting my wings and it’s nice to join you all. -Jorge.

    Hello fellow Sim'er's!

    Just sending a hello to the members of Avsim! I'm new to here, but have checked out the site many many of times before actually joining! I should have joined long ago but hey, I'm male and I procrastinate! imagine those 2 words in one sentence! hehe. But anyways just a quick hello! My main reason for joining the site was to find anyone that uses P3D and Majestics dash8 PRO for shared cockpit flight. I would love to find someone who is willing to give it a shot sometime. I'm no pro pilot but know most of the need to know flight logistics. Cheers from Ontario Canada! Ben.
  22. Hello, I can't seem to pose anywhere but here, so I just figured I would post. Are there any new weather engines that are made for V4? I used to own ASN, but now that they have ditched P3D v4 and are forcing us to pay for their new software, I am not supporting them anymore. Does anyone know of any others? Thank you.
  23. Hello everyone. Back to flight simming after a few years absence. Knew Tom very well. I am set up with Prepar3D V4 and will try to stay active.
