Prepar3d V4 blurry ground textures

Postby Ramonisgek123 » Fri Jun 08, 2018 7:26 pm

Dear friends,

I've just installed Prepar3d and I'm experiencing massive blurry ground textures. I've tried almost everything and it's driving me crazy. Fiber texture commands, max load, affinity mask, deleted cfg, all settings maxed out but nothing seems to be working.

This is how it currently looks:

This is my current CFG.

My setup is:

Sorry, I don't understand.... On one hand you say you are suffering with awful blurries and on the other you say..."all settings maxed out but nothing seems to be working." ?????????

You are not alone with this problem. I have ongoing difficulties along with a lot of other users with Blurry ground textures.
I am hoping that V4.3 will improve this situation but I'm not holding my breath. I think the solution is probably to build a system with a CPU with lots of core's

Greetings.
I am having similar issue with v4.3 and I had it on v4.2. There is a huge active topic in AVSIM forum where people are so frustrated with this blurry textures. Looks like no cure so far. I hope LM will look into it.

Thanks

Can you give some instructions on how to do a quick test?
I just got P3Dv4.3 installed along with some of my addons so it would be a good time to test.

Also, do you gave some screenshots (or a video) of the test area so I could be looking at the same area?

Rob Ainscough has an excellent video re blurries in P3Dv4.3 on YouTube.

This may help

Was this the video you were refering to where Rob shows no blurry ground textures with P3Dv4.3?
Edit : The P3Dv4.3 USCG C130 looks and sounds good also.

This simulator becomes completely useless. Sorry I have to say that. I am really tired of all theses tweaking. I am participating in the same topic in AVSIM and so many people are suffering from the same issue.

40 mins in flight and everything is so blurry. I have tried everything what was suggested and still no luck. I did so many flights in different settings and regions and in about 30-40 all textures become blurry. What a day..

Edward ,

" I have tried everything what was suggested and still no luck. I did so many flights in different settings and regions and in about 30-40 all textures become blurry. What a day.."

Did you try a flight on a clear day , no weather program , no weather tweeks etc just default P3D?

Yes, I did. Same thing.
I read that people even did clean Widows install and just P3D with no addons and they had the same issue. Many people reported that part of the issue was time compression but I do not use this option.
We are just trying to figure out what may cause this issue. It just has started recently. I did not make any changes to my PC, no new addons. I noticed this issue even on 4.2 before 4.3 came out. The thing is there so many people are havine this issue with different systems, addons and settings.
Thanks

Edward,
I noticed you have a "ASUS 24” Triple Monitor set"
Are all three monitors on one video card?

I have two monitors but P3Dv4.3 is only on my primary monitor.
My second monitor is e.g., for EZdok's menu.

I use Orbx Global Base.

KBAX today (screenshot).
