  1. hi guys,, i was wondering if you guys can help with best and better performance since i am upgrading to V4 P3D i can make it through PC hardwares and Addons. My PC specifications: intel core i7 7700K win 10 64bit spited 4TB HDD 32 GB ram Formula maximums viii mother board x2 1080Ti msi SLI Enabled gaming x corsair H115I cooler ADDONS: Rex texture direct with soft clouds ORBX GSX Simbuddy FSUIPC RAAS PMDG 777 & 737 Pro Atc X what do you guys suggest me to do to get best graphics and best performance with high FPS and lower temperature for CPU and GPUs. Thanks,,
  2. Hello! while Descend at FL200 the FO says to the Crew "Prepare to landing". Crew says "Cabine secure" about 5 Minutes later. I think that is too fast for the best Crew. Secure should come later. Near to final Approach.
  3. Today I encountered the following strange behaviour (tried two times,both same bahaviour, one time with AS4, second time without AS4): approach to LEMG to ILS Z 12 via PIMOS1DCQ arrival - inbound D011S everything normal, LNAV, VNAV PTH and HOLD - as soon as reaching D011S (why does she not turn before reaching -is it a must overfly wpt?) suddenly AT announces THR and the vertical path jumps to almost 2000 ft above.. - ca.20 seconds later again HOLD is announced (but I have to pull back the throttles of course) and vertical path is 450 ft above - then for ca. 2 minutes AT stays in HOLD letting rise the verical path without attemptimg to recover. then finally SPD announced and VP recovered Later on the vertical Path jumped up and done significantly two times more.... Also the other day approaching LGAV via KEA I had the vertical path jumping 8000 FT down suddenly, so decent was obviously started way too late....(But I cant get details for that right now as it takes too much time) So whats going on here...?? Is it me doing something wrong? Hopefully but I honestly dont think so...
  4. Hello, Have set heading to the runway Heading in LOWG (35C) but in Preflight Checklist, FLT Instruments the PIC did not say the selectet heading. he says the heading, which the plane is Standing at the Gate. is that correct?
  5. So I see PMDG has just released a DC-6, fantastic I say....I think I'll get this one.....WHAT...$70 US....nearly $100 Canadian? I know they good. I know they are high end planes. They must know what they are doing, right? But there is no way in Hades that I could or would ever afford to spend that much on one plane. How about a dumbed down version for say $40. this "fake news?" Bryan
  6. Hi guys, I noticed that there were a few people here waiting for P3D v4 installers for airports such as L35 Big Bear City Airport and 2O3 Angwin Pattett-Field so I just wanted to give you a heads up that we just updated all of our products to support P3D v4 along with a load of new features for all simulator platforms. Here's the update: Thanks, Russ
  7. Dear Customers, VAInterface is not yet compatible with Prepar3D V4. We are working on implementing it, but there is no committed release date yet. But rest assured that the support will be available for the MCP, EFIS and all our products soon. Best Regards, VA Support Team
  8. Cannot find saved flightplan in CDU PMDG 737NG in P3DV4 and in my PC I cannot find flightplan LOWIEGLL001 showed in CDU See screenshot please assist
  9. I am having an issue with Chaseplane. Yesterday, it was working fine. Today it wouldn't load either on startup, or manually. Nothing would show up or if it would, the CP splash screen would open and then an error message would pop up and say "time out". I decided to do an uninstall/reinstall and now I can't download it. It takes a long time and then the following error comes up: Installation Error: System.Exception: cpDownloadError at A.B.A(Boolean ) at VFXCentral.MainWindow.A(Object , DoWorkEventArgs ) at System.ComponentModel.BackgroundWorker.OnDoWork(DoWorkEventArgs e) at System.ComponentModel.BackgroundWorker.WorkerThreadStart(Object argument) I have no idea what could be causing this because outside of adding some scenery (which I doubt would do anything to CP), I have made no changes or updates. What could this be?

  12. A question for you experts out there... Is there any reason that when I open up my scenery library within the sim, all of my addon airports are greyed out and I can't do anything with them? I can't move priority, delete, etc. This is only on the payware airports. Everything else can be moved and changed. Thanks I'd post a pick but I can't see where to do that
  13. I'm having trouble adding my flytampa Toronto into p3dv4. does anyone have any tips? thanks
  14. I have a pretty high end system but have run into to crash to desktops when flying into the LA area with decent amount of traffic on pilotedge.

  15. I have looked around but curious if there is currently a working weather add on for p3d v4 It may be too soon for this type or utility but i wanted to know if anyone has one working as of yet Peter
  16. Hi all, Did I make a mistake when updating/downloading my C172RG Cutlass for Prepar3D v4 ? The FuelFlow and RadioDME gauge are INOP, confirmed by the contenterror.txt : Some other issue as well with the clock and Radio_KR87. Other C172RG customer can check their contenterror.txt on Prepar3Dv4 to see if you have the same error ? Remark : its hard to know the version, but the .exe (ALC172RGX.exe) installer date is 06/19/2017 (downloaded from Alabeo web site with a new serial).
  17. Hi, Im usingf the PMDG 777 with P3Dv4 on a Dual Monitor Setup (Second is for gauges) and i have a Problem with undocking the Panels. Whenever i undock a Panel to take it to my second Monitor, the Panel goes black in the VC. Ist like im litterally taking it out to bring it to the other Screen. I have never had this with any other aircraft. Is it Normal ? sorry for my bad english Greetings from switzerland Stephane
  18. Checking out the updated NGX 600-700 Expansion package now in Beta, doing a preflight on the ramp at my homebase, getting ready for a trip to Vegas... yeah Vegas baby.
  19. <problem solved> Hello pilots, I have a strange problem with my IVAO IVAP client in combination with FSUIPC5103 "Press the key to be sent when you press this button" feature in P3DV4. Let my try to explain: I configured a few buttons on my joysticks (yoke and HOTAS Warthog) via the FSUIPC "Buttons + Switches" tab and the option "Press the key to be sent when you press this button". A specific example is a button that when pressed should output the "S" corresponding the keyboard "S" for this explame to P3D view switching. This works perfect in P3D until I start the Ivao IVAP client. The functions stops working the minute I start the IVAP client (ivap_dllhost). All other functionalies like joystick use, throttle assignment etc all woks fine. Even in the same FSUIPC tab "Buttons + Swtches" the option "select for FS control" in combination with "control sent when button pressed" works fine. But not the option "Press the key to be sent when you press this button". When looking in FSUIPC "Buttons + Switches" tab I do see that when pressing the joystick button the function works. So the button works fine but the "function" is just blocked in the simulator by IVAP because it will not do what is programmed for. When I close IVAP via the windows task manager the function "Press the key to be sent when you press this button" works again. So its a combination of the specific option in FSUIPC and IVAO IVAP. The problem is that I configured a button on my yoke via the first option "Press the key to be sent when you press this button" to configure the "0" key on my keyboard that relates to Teamspeak push to talk key. This options, as mentioned above stops working the minute I start IVAP. I configured IVAP via the following manual: Please note that IVAP works fine (flights are tracked by tracker). I also have FSX Steam installed and have no problems at all with the above settings. Does anyone experiance the same problem? Is there a workaround to configure the "push to talk" option from Teamspeak to a joystick button without the use of the "Press the key to be sent when you press this button" option in FSUIPC? Or a solution overall? Thank you for your help! Mike
  20. Hello folks, Yesterday i bought Carenado's Pilatus pc12 for p3dv4. I think i can't manage to get the weather radar working although i have As16 running. Flying trough thick doesn't show anything on the integrated avidyne radar screen. Do i have to direct the radar to the install path of As16 or something? Or does the radar only show very severe thunderstorms? Cheers Robin Goddyn
  21. I've made another thread recently about FPS drop whilst undocking displays or the CDU, now I've noticed something else strange on the 737NGX v1.20.8396 on P3Dv4 (hotfix 1). I installed this new version after completely uninstalling the previous version. The problem I am seeing is that I get a massive FPS drop when activating any of the internal cockpit lights, ie the main panel lights, dome white, panel bright knob, emergency exit light etc. Now this occurs whether I have dynamic lighting ON or OFF. I checked my CPU and GPU usage and the GPU was running between 30-50% and all the CPU cores were not maxed out so it does not appear to be a hardware problem. The weird thing is that once I stop clicking or turning the internal lights, the FPS goes back to normal, which in my case is 30fps, which is what my refresh rate is. Only a week ago I had the NGX running on P3DV3 with no issues. Testing was done at stock airport with no other addons apart from FreemeshX. My computer specs are I7 6700k OC 4.7ghz Geforece GTX 1080 G1 DDR4 16gb 3200mhz Samsung EVO SSD Acer 4k 28" monitor P3DV4 settings are moderate to high, Vsync on and unlimited frames. I need vsync on and unlimted frames, otherwise its a stutter fest. Also of note I have the AA set to 4 X MSAA which is not taxing on my system. I made a support ticket, however I'm curious to see if anyone else is getting this issue?
  22. I think I have found a possible bug with The Latest Exp version, while using P3Dv4. Not to sure where to post it so I am putting it here. When Chaseplane is installed but NOT running. I can pan on the outside view of the aircraft but when in the VC the Pan does not work at all. After uninstalling Chaseplane I can pan again. Not to sure if it made an error in the config file or not
  23. Hello, When I choose any livery other than the United Merger 737-800WL my P3dV4 CTD. Any thoughts? Thank you. Frank Mattioli
  24. I am having an issue with the most recent versions for P3DV4. I am currently using the 1.10.8386 version for both the 777-200LRF and 777-300ER. The aircraft loads and functions normally through set up, taxi and take off. After I retract the gear, I get an error message saying the the tire pressure and brakes have overheated. I have insured that I taxied without using the toe brakes at all. There was no message during the take off run. After some minutes the brake temp warning goes out but the tire pressure message remains. Upon landing the aircraft acts as if maximum auto brake was selected whether I am using auto brake or not. It then requires about 90% thrust to break away and taxi to the gate. It appears as if the wheels are locked up. I have un-installed a number of times with my anti-virus off and running as administrator. The initial build of the 777LRF for P3DV4 did not have this issue. I have just been doing local flights hand flying the aircraft as we transition from P3Dv3 to P3Dv4. Please advise, Thanks, Greg
  25. Posted a few days ago about this, but the stuttering got worse in P3DV4, and I did not change any settings. Tried disabling Dynamic lighting, did not do anything Hyperthreading is already on FXAA I tried on and off, didnt change anything Tried triple buffering on and off, didnt change anything tried Vsync on and off, didnt change a thing So obviously it is not that Getting 20-30fps, notice it most at FSDT JFK, but still happens in the air a bit as well..not as much as when on the ground. Any help?
