How to delete saved display profiles?

I have a number of saved display profiles that I no longer need. There doesn't appear to be a delete function in the client. The learning centre just says: "To reload custom graphic options. On the Graphics Options Display tab, click Save. Save the configuration file with a unique name. Select the c...

Re: Terrain mesh LOD

What are your current settings in Options/World/Terrain?
What is the related target frame rate setting?

Re: i7-8086K not running at 5.0Ghz despite 100% Core0 usage

Hmm, Ray you'll recall I did say on another forum that you'd been sold something that wasn't performing as advertised really.. :( I'd go further than Lefteris, as long as you have a decent AIO water cooler you can bump up the multiplier to 48 easily I would have thought. My 8700K runs at 5GHz on all...

Terrain mesh LOD

Hi LM, Even with a high end system (8700K oc to 5Ghz) I still find that terrain mesh pops up in more detail very close to my a/c. Can the updating range/LOD be extended outward to hopefully allow this to be minimised please?

Re: P3D stuck at splash screen after update to 4.3

Try this - I had the same problem and it was likely down to an incompatible addon. Open your documents folder \ Prepard 3D\ Make a backup of all add-on's inside. Remove all the Add-on's.XML files. Go to Local Disk (C:) ► ProgramData ► Lockheed Martin ► Prepar3D v4 Make a backup of exe.xml and dll.xm...

Re: Good add-on ATC to use until the bug is fixed?

I use VoxATC, not the cheapest, but I used it to virtually 100% replicate some of my VFR PPL flights. It is only as good as the data in sim though, so you need to do a little research. Don't expect any ATC addon to give you perfect ATC out of the box, they can't do it. I use fsAerodata to update my ...

Re: P3D4.1 CTD

Thankyou Elaine. I am not sure how, but the situation has (partially) resolved itself. After rebooting multiple times, I found that all addon aircraft seemed to load and work normally. However, the F22 default scenario still CTD. :S I am slowly now uninstalling and reinstalling all addons sequential...

P3D4.1 CTD

Initially this event happened on Jan 20th after my PC updated to Win10 build 1709. I am not certain this is the root cause but the proximity of the update to appearance of the problem is suspicious... On starting P3D with the Majestic Q400 in a saved state partway through a flight P3D loaded, the Q4...

Re: Maximum LOD in Prepar3d4 - for LM

I want those who are asking about it's value limits to explain what they think it affects. Ed, maybe if people were told by someone who actually knows what they're talking about, they could make an educated choice about whether to try to change a value or not? I don't honestly know myself, so pleas...

Re: P3Dv4 : photoscenery blurry in the distance

Confirmed here too... my example is ORBX Scotland when flying around Edinburgh city. They use photoreal for various parts including the large famous hill and it stays blurry until you're right on top of it and it's like this regardless of settings. I'm running a 3930K processor at 4.2ghz and a 1080...

Re: Maximum LOD in Prepar3d4 - for LM

A question... what do you think the value of LOD_RADIUS affects visually?
That's a really great question that lots of people would probably appreciate a clear answer to? :)

Re: Merging of various Autogen definition files

Prepar3D cannot load or merge more than one autogen xml file. The add-on.xml can be used to define a location of an autogen xml file to be used by the system. This file will be used instead of the default AutogenDescriptions.xml without replacing it. Regards, Rob McCarthy Rob, I am a huge fan of LM...

Re: Surf effect difference in v3 and v4 - same file

NM, I've narrowed this down to an add-on effect. Default effects in default scenery work fine. My add-on scenery I'm seeing this with does not add the effect in question so I've tested with various add-ons activated to identify the offending package. It is another Earth Sims scenery - their 6.1 Scot...

Re: Surf effect difference in v3 and v4 - same file

Ive tried flipping the texture files fx_swoosh anf fx_swoosh2
Heres another video after that.

You can clearly see that the surf texture effect is vertical out of the water instead of horizontal on top of it.
