  1. This is the support page for SXAD's KAMA for FSX, FSX SE, Prepar3d v2, v3 and v4. Currently this airport is available from Simmarket: http://secure.simmarket.com/sxairportdesign-rick-husband-amarillo-international-airport-fsx-p3d.phtml And Justflight: https://www.justflight.com/product/sxad-kama-amarillo-airport
  2. Hi Guys! It’s my first post in the forum and i’m struggling with having a new laptop which are MSI GF65 and Asus ROG Zephyrus G14, i couldn’t find any posting relating to this topic, hope to get some help here...Specification:MSI GF 65Processor: I7-9750H @2.6GHz (Max boost to 4.5GHz) 6 CoresGraphic Card: GeForce RTX 2060 (6GB)SSD: 512 GBRAM: 16GBROG Zephyrus G14Processor: Ryzen 7-4900HS @3.0GHz (Max boost to 4.3GHz) 8 CoresGraphic Card: GeForce RTX 2060 MAX-Q (6GB) SSD: 1TBRAM: 16GBI noticed that more simmer prefer Intel processor compared to AMD because Intel’s single core performance & clock rate is way more better than AMD. But when it comes to Gaming Laptop, I’ve no idea that whether cores really matter to P3D in FPS performance. These two are my options, there’d much price difference between them, but 1 with I7 based clock rate 2.6GHz, another with AMD based clock rate 3.0GHz which is more nearer to the requirement of V4 ( @3.5GHz).Which laptop should I go for? My target FPS is 20FPS or just able to smoothly launch ORBX, Active Sky and PMDG...Thank you,Alester Tok
  3. Hello ! I made a sound package for PMDG 737NGXu. Actually i changed only Engine startup sounds and pack sounds. Now its more realistic. I hope you like it ! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qvoYHxePxevKKvfUQq27u60smgnhN3P6/view?usp=sharing Copy files to: Prepar3D > Sound > PMDG > 737NGXu > Various
  4. Hello, Whenever I do a flight, no matter what addon aircraft or scenery, at random times it starts to lag every second such as it freezes for a second, run for a second and freezes again and it does it continuously. I have tried applying around with the display setting such as turning Vysnc off or tripple buffering off and variable refresh rate on but the problem still occurs randomly. I have updated all my drivers to the latest version and have a GTX 1070 with a 75 HZ monitor. Please help thank you.
  5. Lockheed today released version 2.1 of Prepar3D. Here is what LMOC had to say; "Today announces the release of the next evolution of Prepar3D v2 with Prepar3D v2.1. Updates to Prepar3D v2 are available in both a patch to an existing v2 installation, or as a new installer from your Purchased Downloads page. If you are a current Prepar3D v2 user, there is no charge to upgrade." Here is a short list of the fixes and updates: Rendering, Performance, Backwards Compatibility, Weather and Clouds Rendering Features Added DirectX® 10 fallback hardware support for DisplayLink and other monitors Dynamic shadows now can be enabled to render when you do not have tessellation (GPU Terrain) enabled Further optimizations and enhancements to prevent microstutters that were reported Further optimizations to the autogen and terrain paging system Rendering/Performance Issues Resolved Lessened the specular shine on terrain to help alleviate anti-aliasing on runways, roads and terrain Fixed an issue where the HDR lighting feature could get into bad rendered states with extreme darkness Lightened star and other reflections at night Fixed an issue where Effect EffectParams didn’t turn off lights or effects Fixed an issue where airport light beacons cast shadows Fixed an issue where cloud and fog visibility was rendered at about half of what was set Fixed an issue where terrain lighting and shadows could be in wrong direction Fixed an issue where windsocks did not visibly change at all, always pointed North Fixed a rendering issue where a white square was visible around the moon Fixed an issue where boat wakes were not being rendered on certain AMD graphics cards Fixed an issue where clouds could be seen through the horizon through thick fog Fixed an issue where a black screen could occur with HDR Lighting feature enabled Fixed an issue where a black screen could occur going in and out of fullscreen Fixed a rendering issue where progressive taxi arrows were not rendering Fixed a rendering issue where emissive objects were fogging inappropriately leaving artifacts on the sun and moon Fixed an issue where the new dynamic shadows did not respect tiled textures Fixed a large performance loss when main Prepar3D window did not have primary focus Fixed a large performance loss when moving panel(s) to a second monitor Resolved a few memory fragmentation issues To read more of the release, and to see additional fixes and compatibility improvements, you can read the entire list here.
  6. Lockheed Martin today sent us some news regarding Prepar3d and a video they just released. Here is what they had to say about the video; "Prepar3D® simulation software presents a virtual world that spans from the ocean depths to suborbital space. See how Prepar3D can be used for immersive, experiential learning in this trailer. Since launching the software in 2010 as an evolution of Microsoft ESP technology for professional training and academic learning, Lockheed Martin has expanded ground and maritime settings, added camera sensors and enhanced its multi-player capability for distributed training exercises. Details about Prepar3D are at www.prepar3d.com." .
  7. I have a problem with my TBM 850 glowing at night. I don't know how to fix this, I attempted to make a tomato shade reflection profile but it didn't go so well. I'm using dynamic reflections and dynamic light in p3d, disabling these didn't give me a different result.
  8. Hi everyone, Has anybody keeping FMGS B47.00 (Jeehell Freeware) on the their archive? I did lots of research on the internet but couldn't find it. If someone can help me to find it, I I will be appreciate. One of my client has an a320 simulator. FMGS B47.00 installed on it. I'm tring to set-up Opencockpit MCDU v3. It is requiring Sioc Creator. So,There are different protucts on it too, like (opencockpit, cockpitsonic etc.). I don't want to change the configs about it. If I update the Jeehell Freware, the config files will change (I guess) Therefor I ask for FMGS B47.00 Thank you.
  9. I've noticed this especially on FSDT's airports, KIAH and a few others that I can't remember. But when you have dynamic lights on and then turn on your runway lights on PMDG 747/777, the runway texture is extremely grainy and fuzzy looking and it looks absolutely terrible. What's the cause of this and will there be an update to fix this problem? I don't recall seeing this at other airports but I will have to make sure and do some more testing to see if this also happens with other scenery as well.
  10. I’m running an i7 7700k, overclocked to 4.9GHz, 1080 TI Aurous Xtreme, with 64 GB DDR @3200. My monitor is an Acer Predator x34 Gsync 100hz. I have Black Marble Base and Vector, Pilot’s FS NG Ultimate Mesh, practically all of Orbx’s products. I’m running an affinity mask of 116 tweak. Although I get relatively good FPS, noting below 25, and maximums of about 80 FPS, the experience isn’t smooth, even at high FPS. How can I get rid of stutters? Any suggestions will be much appreciated… Best,
  11. I am trying to install ReShade, and when I install it (following the youtube tutorial by Pilot Pete (member on here) and then try to start P3D, P3D gets stuck on the "Terrain Loading 6%" forever. If I go to the P3D folder, there are three new "dgxi" files that are installed when I install ReShade. If I delete them, P3D starts fine and works, but I am not sure if that then renders ReShade useless? Also, the screenshot button for reshade is PRINT SCR? Does this mean i need to paste it into something to work, or does it save somewhere? Thanks!
  12. My friends, I think most people running P3D are aware that many in our community suffer from Out of Memory errors (despite using the recommended methods to avoid them) and there are also those who like me don't have this problem. While reading a particular post this evening, I wondered if DX11 doesn't have some residual mirror allocation going on, or if there might otherwise be some relationship between OOMs and those with video cards that contain higher amounts or VRAM. In other words, some type of relationship which might result in someone with a video card having 4GB, 6GB, 8GB, etc., with all things being equal, be more prone to suffering an OOM than someone with 1GB or 2GB VRAM. For the record, I'm aware of the differences between DX9 and DX11, so we don't need to have this conversation. I'm hoping that people suffering from OOMs will consider providing some of their system specs in order to help track the source of comparative OOMs (all things being equal between two systems, one system is prone to OOMs while the other is not). This is only for OOMs under Prepar3d (P3D). Terms Used: RAM Physical Memory on the Motherboard VRAM Physical Memory on the Graphics Card VAS Virtual Address Space, basically the specific space set devoted to an application (such as P3D). With a 64bit operating system, the size of allocated VAS can be up to 4GB for each 32bit application. DATA COLLECTION 1. Version of Prepar3d? 2. Processor Type (example: i7 4770K) Overclocked? Turbo Mode Setting)? 3. GPU *Please create separate entry for each video card. Manufacturer (example: Gigabyte) Model Number (example: GTX980) Overclocked? Amount of VRAM? 4. Amount of RAM? 5. Number of monitors in use (may or may not display P3D? 6. Number of monitors on which P3D is displayed on? 7. Did you have more than two airport sceneries enabled during the OOM(s)? Many thanks for your help.
  13. Today I loaded the latest updates to Chase Plane v0.1.36 Alpha and got a message saying my version of Prepar3D 3.1.2.15831 was not supported. Everything had worked fine prior to this update. The error said Chase Plane supports Prepar3D v3.3.5.17625 or later for advanced features. It recommended updating to Prepar3D v3.4.14.18870. The current manual in the forums says Chase Plane supports v3.3.5.17625 and v3.4.9.18400. Can someone tell me the recommended version of P3D for Chase Plane to work with advanced features including smooth zoom and static cameras? I fully get that it's Alpha, and I'm willing to update P3D. I just want to do it once since I have a lot of add on packages and want to make sure everything is compatible. Thanks Mike
  14. Hi everyone! I have been a fan of FSX for quite some time and i recently decided to give P3D V3 a go. So far so good, everything looks much better than in FSX and it even runs much faster. I do have a problem tho, I am not sure if I am really getting the entire eye-candy that I should get, because I do see videos on youtube of people who managed to make the entire sim look almost perfect. Right now I'm having one particular problem I have seen in other threads for P3D V2 and V2.5, basically, SimObjects are just too dark at night, you almost can't see them, there's just a black silhouette where the aircraft or simobject is supposed to be. Allow me to illustrate. Notice also how the concrete is a light yellow color, this, as far as I know, is not normal at all. I would also like to point out that I have installed REX4, ORBX Vector and the airports you see are FSDreamTeam KIAH and Airsoft London Heathrow respectively. The concrete being yellow might be a problem not with the simulator itself, but with the airport. I have all settings turned up to max and quite a beast of a computer. I have also messed with the Prepar3D.cfg file to turn up the exposure and tweak the HDR, but the only thing it does is make everything bright, including the sky and the airport itself. In short, I'd like to make my sim look like this at night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTzfAOWFRLE And like this at day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fI9lN9pCJr4 (I am aware that SweetFX might be the thing making the video look so realistic). Here are some photos also of my sim during the day: Thanks! Any help would be appreciated!
  15. I just bought a 4k screen and since i couldnt find anyone using 4k yet for Prepar3d, so i wanted to share. What do you guys think? No more zooming and using 2d panels etc, always max zoomed out
  16. Hey everyone, I believe I have solved the joystick woes with Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. I have done 2 days of stress testing FSX and P3D with multiple installs of the program and OS, and I haven't had a disconnect yet. Before I go further - I want to give my thanks to certain individuals who have helped me and inspired me to solve this joystick annoyance. 1) Word Not Allowed for having his awesome guides 2) AVSIM's staff/team for creating the amazing Hardware/Software Guide to FSX/P3D 3) Peter Dowson's FSUIPC utility (it got me through the periods when no joystick fix was avialable) 4) Orbx Team - Thank you Global and your Tips and Tricks Forum section 5) NickN's - FSX Computer System Guide 6) Ranak Jones of "Rogue's Guide to Acquisition: Principles of Final Frontier" for sending me a spare XFX 6970 for my system and pointing me to Windows 8 Registry to search for USB Device GUIDs potential errors 7) Microsoft MSDN for having Windows 8.1 Pro for testing/evaluation purposes only. 8) LM Prepar3d Developer Network Testing: 1) FullScreen FSX in Eyefinity Mode (5760x1200) for 3 hours+ 2) Windowed FSX in triple screen mode and 1920x1200 for 4 hours+ 3) Multiple active windows on top of FSX Windowed in background for 4 hours+ 4) Testing was done with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports FSX testing was in Win 8.1 and 8, and P3D 1.4 was in Win 8. My System Cpu: i5-750 (intel 1156 cpu) overclocked to 4.1Ghz Memory: 8GB DDR3 Storage: 1xSamsung 830 SSD at Sata III (Main drive), Intel 80GB SSD at Sata II speeds, 1 TB hitachi mechanical HDD at sata II <- all connected to PCIEx4 Sata III controller) Motherboard: MSI Fuzion p55A - has native usb 2.0 and Renesas USB 3.0 controller Video: New XFX 6970 2GB with latest ATI drivers OS - Windows 8 Pro Clean install / Windows 8.1 Clean Install Joystick: Thurstmaster Hotas X Windows 8 Solution - (FSX / Prepar3d 1.4) 1) Make sure power management features are off or set to high 2) Most important setting is USB Selective Suspend Setting is Disabled (we all knew this) Honestly, that setting does not disable USB selective suspend in Windows 8 (this is for Windows 8 only), like it promises. The power management on USB devices is set to Selective Suspend Please see your HID Devices, USB Input Device and USB Root Hub Devices - They are STILL set to Suspend. You have to turn OFF the manual power savings one by one to all USB Devices/Compositive Devices and the all the USB Root Hubs (this is v.important). If it says "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" and is checked then please UNCHECK it For example like this This was discovered when I was searching for Joystick UID's in Windows 8 based on Ranak's suggestion. This is where stuff gets weird for both Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. I am no registry expert, but GUID's for my joystick is half correct and half backwards as compared to one listed in FSUIPC's ini file See Pic - Windows Registry And my Joystick GUID in FSUIPC So for some reason half of the GUID is backwards in Registry - I do not know if that is normal or not but that led me to search all the usb devices/ports in Device Manager. Here I found all the power saving features were somehow enabled when Windows Power Management is explicitly set to disable. Recap So for Windows 8 Pro ONLY - Uncheck Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power and make sure Windows Power management also has Selective Suspend set to Disabled. Prepar3d 1.4 - Please have JOYSTICKS=1 in [CONTROLS] in P3D.cfg (more on this later) Windows 8.1 Pro (RTM Version) - FSX TEST No joystick disconnects with 1 Setting change Only - Joystick works in Windows 8.1 Pro I am seeing that all devices still have the USB Power Management check in windows 8.1 but in FSX with PNW, and Bowerman addon, Carenado B200 - Joystick did not disconnect. The only crash I got was from latest FSUIPC 4.92. If in Windows 8.1 you have joystick disconnects, then just turn off all those power management features as listed in for Windows 8. Miscellaneous Info FSUIPC I have it installed but it Zero Joystick Configuration in all tests. I hope this helps everyone - as Windows 8.1 Pro definitely works fantastic with no joysticks issues so far. And Windows 8 works with all power management features individually turned off in all those sections listed. Have a great day, Skywolf
  17. Hi, I used to fly the PMDG 777 on my P3Dv3.4 and recently i switched to v4.4. I just want to know if do i need to buy the 777 again or will it be free? Thanks, Francis
  18. Hello, I have flown the 737 on different platforms from eham to lowi before and am just revisiting prepar3d again after x-plane mod 737 crashing all the time. I have just purchased the pmdg 737 for prepar3d and can't find the pmdg tutorial #2 scenario's to load. I'm wanting to practise the steep turn at innsbruck prior to runway 08 and am wishing to load the approach scenario that is provided in tutorial #2. Do I have to already be manually flying the eham to lowi route in order to load the scenario's or is there some trick to copying the relevant scenario files somewhere? I don't understand why the scenarios are not appearing in the list when I goto load scenarios in the startup screen. Hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance for your help. Michael M
  19. I have relocated this post to the "HARDWARE CONTROLLERS, JOYSTICKS, ...." forum. (I don't know how to delete this original post) Sorry for the confusion. I have a "Desktop Aviator model 2450B" gps unit (with the vga screen) that I'm contemplating including in a new cockpit build. I haven't installed the unit before, and have a few questions, should anyone here be familiar with these units: (1) Sim compatibility: I understand they are compatible with FSX. I would like to know if they work with FSX Steam and/or Prepar3d? (2) Reliability: Before I make up a place for it in the cockpit, I'd like to know whether these units reliably install and operate? I ask because I see the manufacturer no longer offers these units. Any advice is appreciated, Many thanks, Brian Vancouver, BC
  20. Hello, I am wondering whether the following hardware configuration is suitable for use with Prepar3d, latest version? I have not used Prepar3d before, and am not especially computer savvy. My environment would include Orbx and either ga or corporate aircraft. If it is not sufficient, I would appreciate any practicable advice on which components will need to be upgraded (to what?). I'll either be using three (3), 24" 1080p monitors or a larger size UHD tv. Thanks, Brian Specs: CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K Socket LGA 1151 Unlocked (...should it be delided to ~4,7Ghz ?)
