Windshield rain effects from TFDi 717 TrueGlass

Thanks to the developers at TFDi, hope to see these features implement in other aircraft in the near future.

Re: Crash when installing a new scenery (Possible Threshold)

So the issues seems to be add-ons in User\documents, I can have a max of 27: 131 additional 3rd party scenery/airport (via scenery.cfg) 27 additional 3rd party scenery/airport via Add-Ons folder (Uses\Documents) 114 additional 3rd party aircraft add-ons 93 additional AI 3rd party aircraft add-ons --...

Re: Crash when installing a new scenery (Possible Threshold)

Hi Joe,

Users can disable Add-ons and scenery entries all within P3D UI, no need to manually edit .cfg files.

Testing now to see how many I have to disable in order to resolve the missing texture issue.

Cheers, Rob

Re: Crash when installing a new scenery (Possible Threshold)

As a test, I added three new 3rd party add-ons (to my long list of existing add-ons): 1. Aerosoft Barcelona 2. FSDT Louisville 3. Just Flight DCH-3 Otter Now the F22 and a few other aircraft are experiencing black textures (there weren't prior to add these 3 add-ons). So I'm going to suggest that th...

Re: Crash when installing a new scenery (Possible Threshold)

The more I experiment with this the more I think it's a shader problem, but this one really has me puzzled. If someone who is having this problem could try the following: 1. Setup a flight in P3D v4.1 at dusk and save the flight (make sure DL is enabled) 2. Exit P3D V4.1 3. Delete your shaders folde...

Re: Crash when installing a new scenery (Possible Threshold)

Thanks for the update/info ... not much I can do right now, but will experiment tonight.

I have both PMDG 737 and the T2G LFPG so I can check those also.

Cheers, Rob.

Re: Crash when installing a new scenery (Possible Threshold)

Hi Joe, Interesting ... I'm actually not seeing this issue on any aircraft, only airport vehicles and only "some" airport vehicles. But it sounds like you're suggesting fallback beyond 3 might be the source of this issue ... or did I not understand correctly? But it's a clue, I'll do some experiment...

Re: Crash when installing a new scenery (Possible Threshold)

Hi Rob, I also just started having this issue (as in yesterday) with V4.1 under Windows 10 with their recent KB installs which as I understand might have a bug in the D3DCompiler*.dll that wraps calls to DX shaders ... however I have NOT installed KB4041676 but I do have KB4038788 and KB4040724 inst...

Re: Carenado 172P G1000 with Synthetic Vision System.

"new TBM 850" not in the cards ... "used TBM 850" will take some creative investments with some amazing returns :)

But here is something more likely and a great video in case anyone is serious about purchases, maintenance, and long term costs:

Re: Carenado 172P G1000 with Synthetic Vision System.

Well I used race Lotus cars so it takes a lot to pucker me up ... I'd say around a 7. :) I would only attempt to land a KBID in that kinda weather if it was a serious emergency (like fuel leak, very sick passenger, etc. etc.) SVS will be free for the 1st year, but for $35 for aircraft with SVS, I'd ...

Re: Dead Men Tell No Tales!

Does the canoe really attach and stay attached during flight? Love the Beaver! Oh and the bear and cubs.

As always Robert, fantastic video production.

Scenery Conflict Tool (BGL scanner)

One of the biggest sources or problems with P3D Vx (and FSX for that matter) is the conflict of scenery/airports (including Mesh). There is no quick and easy way to ID problems and resolve them (usually requires google search, visiting 3rd party vendor web sites, etc. etc.). These are mesh problems ...

Re: Orbx OpenLC - South America - 4K

Hi Mike, I did report an issue to HiFi with ASP4 locking up P3D V4 when in "Multiplayer" mode ... not the same as what you do but similar in what needs to happen for synchronization. But you'd need to see all your computers synch with both ASCA files and weather injection ... I think the weather inj...
