P3D4.5 Hotfix 1 CTDs

Hi,

I am getting constant CTDs when trying to load P3D v.4.5.12.30293 (Hotfix 1).

The aircraft is the default one (F-16) and the airport is Comox CYQQ. Prior to the Hotfix, I had no problems with a variety of aircraft at this location.

Any suggestions?

Mark

Re: Will FSX Traffic files work in P3Dv4.5?

Thanks Dan,

I'm having a look at AI Flight Planner and it appears to be just what I need. As far as I can see, it will accept existing TTools files and convert them to a format that's compatible with P3D.

I've yet to read the manual but it seems pretty straightforward.

Re: Will FSX Traffic files work in P3Dv4.5?

Hi Pete, Thanks for your reply. Yes, I've added the necessary aircraft to SimObjects. I haven't been using MT6, but a pretty old program called TTools that worked well in FSX. Using it, I could make my own AI files. It makes files such as Traffic_xx.bgl that you place in ...\Scenery\World\Scenery. D...

Will FSX Traffic files work in P3Dv4.5?

I am using UTL Client with P3D4.5 successfully. Is it possible to add home-made Traffic files, that worked in FSX, to P3D? I have added the appropriate files (Traffic_xx.bgl) to ...\Prepar3D 4.5\Scenery\World\Scenery, but the AI aircraft don't appear at the airports. Is there some way of fixing this?

P3D v.4.5 very slow to load

Why is P3D v.4x so slow to load? 'Loading Terrain Data' can take as much as 15 minutes to load. It sticks at 6% for several minutes then creeps up very slowly. What is the reason for this aberrant behaviour? Other people have also commented on this. It was supposed to be 'fixed' in version 4.5 but i...

Re: How to add existing Scenery.cfg to P3Dv4.5

Hello Oliver, Yes, "fundamentally wrong" sounds about right! Trouble is that I can't find where the problem is. I've looked through the P4AO first page and there are a great many .xml references that are scattered apparently at random throughout the list. Up until now, I had been using a program cal...

Re: How to add existing Scenery.cfg to P3Dv4.5

Hello Oliver, Thanks for that very informative reply. You say, "At the bottom of the "P4AO Duplicate Check" window it asks you if you want the app to remove the duplicates automatically - and you can answer "Yes" or "No"." I think my problem is that the contents of that window cause it to exceed the...

Re: How to add existing Scenery.cfg to P3Dv4.5

Hi blaunarwal, I have been investigating Addon Manager and when I click on Remove Duplicates, a window appears with a long list of 'Duplicates Detected'. I have several problems with this list:- 1. There are no instructions for how to use it. 2. Checking, e.g. 'Adelaide|601 <-> Adelaide |494' agains...

Re: Appearance of hundreds of .zip files in P3Dv4.5 folder

Hi Tym,

Thanks for your reply.

I may well have chosen to make backups of Orbx files - I don't remember!

If I were to move them to somewhere else, where would be a good folder?

Appearance of hundreds of .zip files in P3Dv4.5 folder

During or after my (re)installation of P3Dv4.5, I found a very large number (several hundred!) files in the home folder, i.e. C:\Flying\Prepar3D 4.5. All have the extension .zip and consist of about 30 characters of random digits and numerals + occasional dashes, and all contain further .zip files -...

Re: How to add existing Scenery.cfg to P3Dv4.5

Thank you both for your suggestions. Here are my points:- 1. SCE had been working perfectly with FSX and P3d3. 2. Scenery.cfg is in C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4. 3. I had serious problems trying to get P3D4.5 to load at first. It would get as far as showing the splash screen and occasi...

Re: How to add existing Scenery.cfg to P3Dv4.5

Thanks for your reply, Jorgen, but I already have Scenery Configuration Editor and have found that it will not read the Scenery.cfg files of P3Dv4. In Text Editor view, it shows nothing but undecipherable garbage. In List and Group Views, for P3Dv 4, it says "These views are disabled as scenery has ...

How to add existing Scenery.cfg to P3Dv4.5

I have finally installed P3Dv4.5, after a week of problems, corrected eventually by *completely* un-installing v4.4 and then re-installing v4.5. Stupidly I failed to make a backup of my Scenery.cfg file, so now have only the default scenery available. I found a recently saved Scenery.cfg file and co...
