[RESOLVED] Crashing with Nvidia OpenGL error code 3

Postby turbineseaplane » Sun Mar 13, 2016 8:46 pm

Having a major bummer experience for the first time ever with P3D v3.2

Anyone else getting a crash with Nvidia OpenGL error code 3?
I'm not sure how to figure out what it is.

Is this one of those dreaded OOM situations I've always heard about?

Open your NVIDIA Control Panel and select “Manage 3D settings”. Then, select the “Power Management mode” and change the option from “Adaptive” to “Prefer maximum performance”.

If that doesn't work, roll the drivers back to an earlier version.
