How I removed stutter in Multichannel - P3D V3.3

Postby sgst » Fri Feb 23, 2018 11:12 am

I have P3D V3.3 in a multichannel set up with 3 computers.

It is a relatively ok computer rig - Master PC (I7-8700 @5ghz) - and 2 Client PCs (I7-7700 @4.9ghz, GTX 1060 6GB).
5 monitors 1920x1080 (not 4k) for outside views. (and 8 more monitors for instruments etc in the cockpit running on the master pc)

I have struggled with stutter for a long time. All the time - stutter, even in the middle of nowhere!

I thought I would share how I solved the problem:

1. Change Master Network.cfg to 50 FPS (not 30 FPS)
2 Limit FPS on Master computer to 50 FPS
3 Set FPS on Client computers to Unlimited
4. Force monitor resolution to 50HZ (from 60HZ). This is achieved in the Nvidia Control Panel under, under change monitor resolution. (Google how to do it).

The above changes made a real change to my system. In particular - no 4 - is the game changer for me. Now silky smooth save for some stutter at major airports/cities, which I think is impossible to get around.

Hope it can also work for someone else out there still struggling.
