  1. I have just got prepar 3d v3 and have ftx orbx for fsx steam , do i have to re-install the orbx products to work with prepar 3d?
  2. here is a guide i posted on the REX forums to get a little bit more beauty out of your prepar3dv2. My setting are very subtle but you guys can play with it. Now that prepar3d v2 is out, I thought it would be a good idea to put a guide for anybody that wants to enhance their prepar3d experience by adding a shader injection. In this case we will use sweet fx and flightfx GUI since regular enb doesnt work in dx11 and FXAA tool seems a bit buggy in prepar3d v2. This guide should also work for fsx dx9 and dx10 but will need setting adjustments. Right, so lets get to it. 1. download flightfx here : 2. donwload my settings if you choose to here : 3. Install flightfx, I know this thing is supposed to be for ROF but it works just fine in prepar3dv2 and fsx. 4. Now before you launch anything, make sure flightfx and prepar3d are set to run in administrative mode. very important otherwise it will not copy the files that you need. 5. Launch flightfx (admin mode) 6.In the lower left corner of the program it says "register a new game" click it. 7. Find the prepar3d.exe file in the root folder here : C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2 8. Good, now the fields on the right should be already filled up. click on "Enable SweetFX" right below where it says "data folder". 8b. Check the root folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2) to see if flightfx copied the necessary files. ex. d3d9.dll d3d9.fx dxgi.dll dxgi.fx etc. 9.Ok, now go to the "FX settings " tab on the top. at the bottom click where it says "Load from" 10.find where you saved the downloaded file that has my settings (file: "prepard3dv4.txt"). you can also put the txt file inside : C:\Program Files (x86)\FlightFX\FX\SweetFX\Presets for greater convenience. This should put the settings that i have done for preapr3d, you can change them as you want. i did mine with a bit more punch on the colors and bit more "clarity". 11. Now go back to the "Profile manager" tab and check that you have the right file under "FX Preset". this is the file that prepar3d will use for the settings that are active on the "FX settings" tab. 12. Great now leave flightfx open and launch prepar3d v2 and pick any scene that you want to test and adjust. 13. Now to use this we have by default 3 keys: - printscreen button does exactly that. -screenlock button turns the shaders on/off. -pause button reloads the shaders for changes (unmap from p3d if you want). can leave prepar3d running and just go to flightfx and change some of the settings. anything that you want. as soon as you move a slider it saves it automatically. so move a slider then just go back to prepar3d and hit the pause button.this will reload the shaders with your changes and you will see it immediately. here is a before and after for comparison. The settings are very conservative but like i said you can changed them as you want. before after Also note, my prepar3d setting have HDR off since its a bit buggy currently, and has FXAA off as well as no MSAA. flightfx deals with it better and its more adjustable. Thats it keep playing with it and help build amazing settings for the community. The thing seems very stable, although you might see that clicking menus seem a bit slow, you can turn off the shaders and it will go back to normal. Also i did not see any hit on FPS if anything maybe 1fps lost. Happy flying.
