Re: Virtual Reality causing start up problems?

Looks like the problem is fixed. I believe it was a scenery issue after migrating some Turbulent Design scenery over to Orbx. I changed the path which was incorrect, and now P3D displays correctly on start up. I'm not sure why this never happened until I installed the hotfix. Thanks.

Re: Virtual Reality causing start up problems?

I tried that, but it didn't help. When I delete the entire .cfg file, however, and let it rebuild, the sim starts OK on the first try, but after I shut it down, subsequent attempts fail. The start up screen disappears as soon as the scenery build progress bar starts loading, but the task manager sho...

[RESOLVED] Virtual Reality causing start up problems?

Is it possible to disable VR using the .config. file? I've seen where if VR is active, it can sometimes cause display issues. I've tried everything I can think of, but P3D will not start, and display on the monitor. I'm using the hotfix version, but after uninstalling it and loading the previous ver...

Re: Updated to Hotfix. P3D does not start

I uninstalled the hotfix and did a full installation of the previous version. P3D started up OK. I shut it down and started it again, but the screen disappeared. The task manager says the program is still running, but the monitor just shows the desktop.

Re: Previous Version of V4.5

After installing the hotfix, the P3D start up screen appears, but then disappears when it first starts to load the scenery. The splash screen with the options doesn't show up. The task manager says the program is still running, but it's not visible on the monitor. The previous version worked fine, a...

Previous Version of V4.5

I'm unable to get the new hotfix version of V4.5 to work properly. I foolishly deleted the files for the previous version of 4.5 in the process. Is there a way to get this version from this site? I can't seem to find it anywhere including the legacy versions. I'd like to go back to the last 4.5 vers...

Re: Updated to Hotfix. P3D does not start

I don't have WX advantage radar, but I do have the shutdown problem. Everything worked fine before, so there has to be more than this one addon causing problems. Thanks.

Re: Is P3d ever going to be fixed?

No wonder X-Plane is rapidly becoming a favorite with developers within the last couple of years. I'm seeing a lot of really nice scenery I'd like to have, being made for X-Plane instead of P3Dv4. I've spend many hundreds of dollars for P3Dv4 addons in the last couple of years, and I'm beginning to ...

Re: 4.4 - mixed up ground textures

LOD radius is set to Ultra, and texture resolution is set to 2m . I have an NVIDIA 1080ti, and the driver version is 416.94. I've notice this in the Toronto area to a greater extent, but that could related to the FLY Tampa scenery I have. Thanks.

Re: 4.4 - mixed up ground textures

I noticed the same thing. While flying in the Houston area, there was a patch of terrain that had night textures while all the rest had late afternoon lighting. This didn't happen before with the last build. Please don't tell me to do the debugging procedures, or uninstall my addons. Been there done...

[RESOLVED] Clean P3Dv4.4 installation

I completely uninstalled the previous version, 4.3, and did a clean installation of the new version. I don't know if this is normal, but all my .config changes, addons, and settings from the previous version were saved. I checked the version I now have installed, and it shows V4.4. Is this normal or...

Re: Black Taxiways and Ramps at default airports

Ok, Thanks. I uninstalled and reinstalled both the client and content. I had to install the content to override the corrupted texture files I had. All went well. Thanks.

Re: Black Taxiways and Ramps at default airports

Ok, but back to my original question. Can I uninstall/reinstall the P3Dv4 client without affecting my addon scenery? Thanks.
