[RESOLVED] Seamless Update 4.2 to 4.3. Delete Shaders?

Postby Aussie1234 » Thu Jun 28, 2018 11:45 pm

Thank you for the update.
The Client and Content update went well in my case. It just works well.
I think I have gained a few FPS.
I was wondering. Should I delete my Shaders folder if everything is OK? What will be the result?
Will I gain anything? Will it affect anything? I don't want to lose my config settings.

Hello Aussie1234

Deleting the Shaders folder will not effect your settings or 3rd party Add On's. The Shaders are Graphical code that are generated when the sim is launched first

If Prepar3D is launching and flying ok there is no need to take any other action.

It is recommended But not required to Delete the Shaders folder after completing a Client update.

If you do delete the Shaders Prepar3D will generate this folder again when launched next, It may take a little longer to launch Prepar3D only the first time as the Shaders generate again, After this Prepar3D will launch as normal

Hope this helps

Thank you Poppet for your prompt reply.
I just wanted to check the situation before leaving the update alone.
I didn't want to leave, or use slower, legacy files (I believe I haven't deleted the shaders since installing v4.0 when it first came out) if it may help in the never-ending quest for more FPS.

I also didn't know if version 4.3 generated 'better' shader files [whatever they are]. I have added heaps of scenery since installing v4.0.

I guess I'll leave sleeping dogs lie - in the shade.

Aussie.
