  1. So, let me share my QW 787 on departure from KLAX. Enjoy the views!!!!
  2. A continuation from my early morning flight from Orange County. Thanks for viewing!
  3. 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!
  4. Hello guys. I just installed Prepar3d v4.2. A clean installation. So this problem occur when i installed Reshade into P3Dv4. I have no addons installed. Only FTXGlobal install. Before installing FTXGlobal, i tried with reshade its still the same. I kept on getting "Loading Terrain Data" stuck at 6%. Doing a fresh resinstall fix it but i really wwanna use Reshade to enhance my graphics. Any idea how to solve this? Reshade version 3.1
  5. Tried out the P3D Tweak Assistant (PTA) combined with my Reshader presets. Mind blown. Awesome looking! Now if the simulator would stop bleeding away all it's VAS in less than 45 minutes of flight that would be great mmmmmmmmkay? v3.4.9, I am disappointed...
  6. Early morning flight... Thanks for viewing!
  7. Has someone else tried to get ReShade 3.0.7 working in P3D V4? For me it crashes as soon as it reaches the scenario setup screen. In the setup menu I select Direct3D 10+, I assume that's correct? I cannot live without it, colors and everything looks so boring and dull without it, hopefully we get it to work somehow. Will try ReShade 2.0 now, maybe this one works.
  8. OK...so I got all the ReShade and PTA, URP and P3D issues worked out with the help of the wonderful AVSIM forums. Been playing around with peoples presets, and I like all of them...to varying degrees...but having trouble settling in on one. So, take a look at the pics, and lmk what you like best! The presets are from either AviationLads (http://www.aviationlads.com/my-settings/), Pilot Pete (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10nPl-ydnBc), or the FlightBeam Visual Pack (http://flightbeam.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=2647). In all of the presets I have my settings the same in P3D and am getting a solid 30-50fps on the ground with PMDG aircraft at FSDT JFK, and 40-60fps in the air. I have fps locked to 65 in the nVidia inspector tool. I can share my settings if you want. FlightBeam Preset Aviation Lads Cold Season preset Pilot Pete: My thoughts are that Aviation Lads and FlightBeam are the top contenders. Pilot Pete is good but a bit bland for me, although it looks much better in his pics I think thats cause he has tons of addon scenery like ORBX, etc, and does a lot of VFR low flying. LMK what you think! Also, if any of you know the settings to reduce the brightness on the sun hitting the aircraft without turning down overall sim brightness...lmk too :) Have a great rest of the weekend!
  9. With a bit of effort, XP12 is a feast for the eyes. Screenshots and a couple of videos over the SW USA.
  10. Hey all, I used to tweak visuals with the GeForce experience overlay, but recently I've used ReShade with very good results. I find ReShade has way more flexibility in terms of tweaking the visuals. And there's no need to go "all out" with the settings - just a few subtle changes, and the sim will really shine. One thing that's been bothering me for a while is the greenish-yellowish hue that affects everything in the sim - ground textures, clouds, atmosphere. FinalLight has posted a great solution to this over at flightsim.to. Essentially he tweaked LUT values for ReShade with the following goals: Correct the tone of the sim that was red shifted. Reduce the white haze over the image, giving the image a more contrasty solid look. Make clouds white again, removed yellow/beige tint. Change the colors of the atmosphere The installation is fairly simple. Extract the contents of the .zip and place the folder ''ReshadeInjectUWP'' in C:\%UserProfile%\ Copy ''FS2020-Reshade-STARTUP.bat'' to your desktop (or anywhere you prefer) You then have to start MSFS from the .bat file. On the first start, ReShade will inject the shaders and textures. Press the "home" key to open up the ReShade menu once MSFS has finished loading. Whilst in the "home" tab of ReShade, select "FinalLight_v1.3.ini" at the top of the window. This will activate "LUTTools.fx". As the "home" key is already assigned in MSFS, it's probably a good idea to change the assignments in ReShade. To do this, go to the "settings" tab. I've selected "7" for the overlay key, and "6" for "effect toggle key". At this time, MSFS will probably look a lot more natural, with closer to real life clouds, ground textures and atmosphere. I went a bit further however, to bring out a bit more contrast overall. To do this, you need to download another shader, namely the qUINT repositories. On the Github page, click on "Code" then "Download zip". Extract the folder "qUINT-master" to a location of your choice. Then go to the ReShade "settings" tab, and under "input processing" click the "+" symbol. Navigate to the location of "...\qUINT-master\qUINT-master\Shaders" then choose "select". Then you need to activate the "qUINT_lightroom.fx" shader. Go to the "home" tab, scroll down until you see "qUINT_lightroom.fx" then tick the box to the left. Now, the following tweaks very much depends on personal preference. To bring out some more contrast and true black levels, I've increased the "Global Black Level" to 8. I've also slightly increased colour saturation by increasing the "Global Vibrance" level to 0.05. It's a subtle effect, but I think the overall visuals look very good. --- As an added bonus for LG OLED TV owners, I discovered an amazing tweak by FinalLightNL over at the MSFS official forums. What this does is to tune HDR on your TV to bring out even more natural atmosphere colours, especially at dusk/dawn. This will make the sunsets look orange/red as opposed to pink. First go the TV menu => "all settings => "picture" => "picture mode settings" => "advanced controls". Set "dynamic tone mapping" to "off". Finally the last tweak which is sort of like the icing on top of the cake. And this is a pretty huge one for owners of LG OLED TVs. When in "all settings" => "picture", place the marker over "picture mode settings" (without selecting it). Then hit "1113111" on your remote. This will take you to a "secret" menu. Here, set "Mastering Peak" to 1000 nits and "MaxCLL" to 1000 nits. What this does is to bring down the total nits from 4000, to prevent the specular highlights from being blown out. This will really make MSFS shine, resulting in MUCH more details in the clouds and atmosphere. If you struggle getting ReShade to work, OverKill Simulations has made a very easy to understand youtube video. That's it. Blue skies! 🙂
  11. I am using TomatoShade, LIVECOCKPIT preset and Reshade, Felix Hunter preset. The planes are extremely shiny, which isn't as noticeable during the day but at night, they do not get any darker. I don't know if this is a reshade issue or a TomatoShade issue. I attached a screenshot. Thanks in Advance! Night Plane Screenshot
