Re: Running P3D 4.5 smoothley in 2019 (LM has a long way to go)

Did you try to work with straight divisors for your VSYNC/screenrefresh rate/FPS limiter setup? I realized that the only way I can have P3Dv4.5 stutter free on my G-SYNC 144Hz monitor is: - disable G-SYNC for P3D via nVIDIA Profile Inspector - limit the refresh rate of the monitor to 120Hz instead o...

Re: New components

Nothing more easy to test if a higher resolution would still be working with your nVIDIA card: activate DSR (Dynamic Super Resolution) in the driver menue and simply select the higher resolution inside P3D. Then you can compare BEFORE you go and buy a new monitor or a new GPU...

Re: Tweak to limit the maximum display distance

Honestly, I do not think that simply limiting the visual display distance will do anything for the performance. Rather take those autogen sliders one notch back (to the left), the performance gain will be much greater... The only thing for sure has a great impact on performance in regard of display ...

Re: Ssd for new i3 gen 8

If it does not yet have an SSD installed, yes, it will be much faster regarding startup and working. BUT: with or without SSD, with this laptop you will not be able to reasonably use Prepar3d. If, then only on the lowest possible settings, but I doubt that even with the lowest settings you will get ...

Re: Beach wave effect in 4.5

To me, they are perma-disabled, I hovered now for several seconds over a beach (close to YPEC, Australia v2 from ORBX) and they did not appear. Also not elsewhere in the world. How do I get them back?

Re: Upgrade CPU/ Motherboard

I would rather wait until the Ryzen 3000 family of processors is released to market. Does not make sense to buy an "old" Ryzen now, but that is just my opinion.

Did not yet install the hotfix, maybe this will help. I disabled the meteo.dll from Carenado, anyway never use it. Might also che...

Re: Overclocking performance

Do the maths, pretty simple. Clocking from 5.0 to 5.5GHz results in 10% more clock speed and in the unrealistic situation of 10% performance increase, you will get 10% more FPS. Means: if you get now 20FPS, you will afterwards get 22FPS. Worth the hassle? I would say no, it will certainly not make t...

Guys, what is the motivation behind purposely misleading people by wrong information? Or can you give a reliable resource for this claim that the hotfix is released on Tuesday this week?

Re: Spanking new hardware lower frame rates..

Sounds ridiculous, but for a three monitor setup, your GTX-1660Ti is definitively on the lower end of possible GPU solutions, especially if you use 4xSSAA along with it. The stuttering might be due to the CPU, did you try an Affinity Mask inside your prepar3d.cfg? Try once a value of 21845 and check...

Re: 4.5 low gpu usage

You are aware that the last nVIDIA driver introduced a bug resulting in high CPU usage? If you by chance have the nVIDIA driver 430.39 installed, you should get the hotfix driver 450.53 instead. Personally, the CPU usage in my case is not abnormal, I do not get blurries with v4.5 (did not get blurri...

Re: New Computer Suitability For P3D v4.4 64-Bit

While the components of the Medion PC are perfectly suitable for P3D, although not high-end, there was a lot of rumours going on regarding exact this Medion PC build at least here in Europe. It seems that this 8700 is capped for a power target of 65W only, resulting in way lower clock speeds than it...
