Re: Prepar3D v4 hotfix frame rate fluctuations

Just wanted to add that my frame rate drops to 15 fps with vsync enabled. So that's not really going to work anyways.

Re: Prepar3D v4 hotfix frame rate fluctuations

I have aero theme disabled, all monitors running 60Hz refresh rate in Windows, VSync disabled in Prepar3D. I've tried different target frame rates from 40 through 60. No difference.

Are you seeing better results with vsync on?

Re: Prepar3D v4 hotfix frame rate fluctuations

Yes, I tried switching to Windows Basic and ensured that the primary display was set on the GTX 1070.

Still seeing the problem.

Runway Lights

Hello,

Just wanted to ask the team and the community if there's any way to keep the runway / approach lights "always on" at airports?

If so, what's the best way to achieve this?

Re: Prepar3D ATC Menu SDK access

Hi Clifton, Thanks for the quick response. Is this something you're planning to add to the SimConnnect / PDK in the future? This would be a great addition. I see some commands in the Prepar3D actionscript interface file, but I assume that would involve building a Scaleform UI of some kind and runnin...
