  1. Hello everyone! Just so everyone knows, I am aware that if im using all those addons ill be getting bad fps but not as bad as i thought. So i just got accepted into Qantas Virtual so ill be doing my flying in Australia, and who better for scenery than ORBX?! So I load up P3D, select YBBN (Brisbane, with all patches and I have taken out all the major FPS killers in the control panel except for PeopleFlow.) and I load up my 737. My FPS during the day time is only at 20 at the gate with the plane systems on! Now ill give you a series of tweaks that i did to my CFG file and system specs, also, should I turn the the resolution on the 737? Will it look really bad? Used Bojotes tweak tool for fsx, For the bufferpools i replaced their number with 0, and i also added the Fiber frame fraction tweak and set it at 0.33. Other than that I set the ORBX effects to Day mode. System specs: Intel core i5 2500K 4.5ghz AMD Radeon 6870 1GB 8GB RAM 750 Watts PSU ASROCK P67 MOBO FSX is on a 1TB hard drive And numerous addons. Is there maybe something i missed or can do to improve my frames when flying in australia? Because in Europe I get great frames, i dont check the number but get between 25 (lowest) to 40 with the pmdg. Thanks!
  2. With the continuing advancement of P3D by Lockheed Martin, more flight simulation enthusiasts are experimenting with, if not adopting entirely, this flight simulator. However, there is considerable confusion over which third party products currently available can be used, without violating your EULA or other restrictions, within P3D. Questions such as: Does my existing End User License Agreement (EULA) allow me to use my add-on in P3D? If not, do I need to purchase another license to install it in P3D? Assuming my EULA allows me to, will my current product work in P3D? And there are many more. We recently have had some incidents within the forums that arose from lack of knowledge concerning products, EULA's and use within the P3D simulator. As a result, we have undertaken a survey of commercial providers about their EULA's and products for P3D. You can find the beginnnings of this here: http://forum.avsim.n...Pages/p3d_.html
  3. Hi guys, I'm Kensta, a university student that's a real flight simulator enthusiast. I'm kinda young, sitting at the age of 16, and you're probably wondering where did I get my enthusiasm for flying from. Wonder no more, because my father used to be a private pilot when we lived in the U.S.A. He flew first-model Cessna 172s, Cessna 182s, a Mooney M20, and - what he loved the most - Beechcraft V35 Bonanza. Unfortunately he had to sell his beloved Bonanza to make way for me. Back in the day, he used to play Flight Simulator 2000 (still have the Professional pack laying around here somewhere). Anyways, enough of my personal intro and background. I currently live in the Philippines, and have long been a stalker of this forums to see what decent add-ons I can look up on for my flight sims. I mainly use Prepar3D v3 now, but I used to use FSX, X-Plane 9 and X-Plane 10 before finding Prepar3D. At the moment, I fly with a low-end 2014 HP laptop and a CH Products Yoke. I mainly fly the A2A Cessna 172, but I'm beginning to incline to the A2A Cessna 182 since I am mysteriously getting bored of the 172 for some reason. I am more of a general aviation kind of guy, since I find flying airliners too complex and have a steep learning curve. I also use FSUIPC for control inputs and OpusFSI for weather engine (can't invest into ASN). Guess it's time to put up the perpetual shame of system specs that laptops pack: Windows 10 x64 4 GB DDR3 RAM single-channel Intel Core i5-4210U @ 1.7 GHz up to 2.4 GHz Intel HD 4400 500 GB 7200-RPM HDD 1366x768 screen resolution Yes, I know, it's terrible, but it's OK enough to run FTX Global and REX4 TD w/ Soft Clouds on mediocre settings (without all the HDR lighting and shadows) and 2048 texture resolution (1024 and 512 for REX) all while hitting 20-30 FPS. Other than that, I don't really know what to put in here for an introduction that's inclined on flight simulation. This is the first flight sim dedicated forum I've registered to. Other than that, I hope to get along with you all, have a good time, and have more fun with flight simulation.
  4. Hello everyone, I need some help solving a re-installation issue with P3D v3.3. I have been using V2 for some time now and think its brilliant. However, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase V3. The original installation went ok and the program ran fine. Unfortunately, I did something which corrupted some files, and I was getting various messages: 1. Scenario file: C:\Users\Mike\AppData\Local|Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\Prepar3D_Default.fxml failed To Load. This could be due to a malformed XML. file. 2. This default scenario is corrupt. Please repair Prepar3D. and 3. Prepar3D exe has stopped working.........CLOSE PROGRAM I got in touch with Lockheed Martin P3D, who advised me to delete various files and re-install the program: There are a few things I'd like you to try. First, search %APPDATA% at the top of your Windows Explorer window. Go into the Lockheed Martin folder, and delete the Prepar3D v3 folder. Then try to launch Prepar3D. Second, if that doesn't work, search %APPDATA% at the top of your Windows Explorer window. Go into the Lockheed Martin folder, and delete the Prepar3D v2 folder and Prepar3D v3 folder. Then try to launch Prepar3D. Third, if neither of those things work, search %PROGRAMDATA% at the top of your Windows Explorer window. Go into the Lockheed Martin folder, and delete the Prepar3D v2 folder and Prepar3D v3 folder. Then try to launch Prepar3D. Lastly, if nothing above works, uninstall everything pertaining Prepar3D from your Windows Uninstall Utility and attempt to reinstall Prepar3D. Hope this helps, The Prepar3D Team Well I tried all the options and finally decided to of to the last option - uninstall P3D v3., and re-install it again. I am now getting the following message: This program can't start because api.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. I seem to be going around in circles! It is very frustrating to pay US$199.00 and find that I cannot use the program. I am considering getting a refund and going back to P3D V2 again. Any help would be appreciated!!! MikeAR
