Re: v4.0 - Texture resolution choice - bug?

For what it's worth, it has always been the case and will always likely remain the case that using a complex 3rd party aircraft in your default scenario will lead to significant issues. That's not to say that LM doesn't have a bug here, but always keep one of the default planes as your default scena...

Yeah, to be honest, I don't think you're going to get much out of that card. Here's a bit of a comparison: http://gpuboss.com/graphics-card/GeForce-710A

This hack worked pretty great for me in testing, aside from FSUIPC not recognizing that it was registered anymore. That's probably a FSUIPC issue that he can work out and I'll post about it when he's back from vacation. Either way, this is very exciting. I went from ~23-25fps to a solid locked 30fps...

You shouldn't need that with P3D at all, much less P3D v2. When you installed the hotfix, you didn't delete all the dll's before you copied the new ones, did you?

What video card? What driver version? Are you using nvidia inspector?

Which number one priority should it be? They've been asked to have like 10 of them by now, haha.<br /> <br /> That said, try setting Affinity Mask in your Prepar3D.cfg. P3D is supposed to do a better job of that itself, and it likely does on the majority of systems. Mine, however, was not one of the...

Personally I think it's completely uncalled for to attack any user at any time for either offering advice or asking for advice, regardless of what settings and addons they may be using. It may be easy to think you're better than someone because you know that the settings or scenery or addon they're ...

Please just focus on converting to 64 bit and ignore the fact that it'll break every addon. They're eggs, 64 bit will be a delicious omelette. That said, if there was a fix in the meantime that was found, I certainly wouldn't complain!

Just a side note, you can also see in that screenshot that autogen only seems to draw a few hundred yards, maybe a mile or two at most - is that everyone's experience?

I'm noticing this as well in a 172 with a fairly beefy system loading from SSDs. I'm also noticing an amazingly visible autogen draw limit, even with the LOD slider to the max. Far more noticeable than FSX with the default max distance (e.g. 4.5.) Is that just me?

I'm noticing a flickering of ground textures with a shadow-looking texture in various locations (I can get a screenshot if desired.) Is this a problematic shadow being cast by a weird object? This is with FTX Global + Vector, and I can often get it to go away by telling Terrain not to receive shadow...

Yet you don't have your immersion ruined by big red labels above aircraft? Annoying, I understand - Immersion ruining? That I'm not too clear on here.
