  1. Peter, Peter, I know I am a septuagenarium and have been for some years but I am not ready yet to go and fly a kite just yet. The first grab is after running P3D just once from the exe file shown in the second grab. What I think has happened is that somehow I have managed to get a second file extension on the two files concerned. ie: "D3D.exe.exe" Don't get too grumpy Pete 'cause you have a lot of years left to get very grumpy and I know all about that. I will leave you my wheel chair when I go. LOL Cheers, Mac
  2. G'day Pete, I have been out of the cockpit for awhile and am trying to return to the AFR.Friendly mode mentioned HERE. I am not able to use this method of convicing FSUIPC that I DO have a registered copy in AFR.Friendly mode. Waht have I done wrong, please. I have FSUIPC Ver 4.936 installed, registered and working just fine in P3D v2.3 without the SLI "tweak". Mac
  3. Make sure you are running FSUIPC v 4.931 or later. First run P3D in SLI mode and confirm that FSUIPC is NOT registered. This will create two files FSUIPC4.AFR-FriendlyD3D.ini.and FSUIPC4.AFR-FriendlyD3D.log. Go to ../Locheed Martin/Prepar3D v2/Modules/and confirm the two files have been created. Now copy and paste the file FSUIPC4.key. Finally change the name of the new/pasted file to FSUIPC4.AFR-FriendlyD3D.key. Thats it. Start the sim in SLI and you should be good to fly. Many thanks for this, Pete.
  4. Thank you Pete, I will try and follow instructions. I should say that I am not the only one that will be affected by this as a number of people are accepting the option to run P3D v2.2 in SLI mode, which I must say is a huge performance boost. Mac EDIT: OK got it, sorry a bit thick this morning. Thanks again, Pete.
  5. G'day Pete, I have tried several times to install and register 4.931. Each time the registration appears to fail. My next move is to try purchasing a new License but thought I had better check with you first. I only have P3D v1.4 on my G:/ drive and P3D v2.2 on my E:/ drive. The issue first appeared after I installed the "Black Box" edition of the Airbus into P3D v2.2. I also perhaps should have said that I am running P3D v2.2 from an LM hack "AFR-FriendlyD3D.exe" file in order to enable SLI. Cheers, Mac EDIT: When I run P3D v2.2 from the "Prepar3D.exe" file FSUIPC 4.391 is showing as registered. So it looks as though LM have tricked us again. Currently SLI and FSUIPC do not seem to be compatible.
  6. A great big "amen" to that Ian, all hail "Sruffyduck". Thanks for the explanation. I can and will fix as I certainly do have ADE and know how to repair the missing renders. No problem and many thanks. Cheers, Mac
  7. G'day Burkhard, I have run into a small problem. If I tick MT to Enable in the Scenery Library many of my airports taxiways rendering vanishes. Untick and the rendering reappears. The best example I can offer is Changi (WSSS). I have tried several times and at least it is a consistant problem. Not all airports seem to be affected. Cheers, Mac
  8. Burkhard, many thanks. I have installed your "patch" for Prepar3D, Works perfectly. Thank you. Cheers, Mac
  9. Most of this problem, if not all, can be corrected by simply going into "FTX Vector Configurator" which installs with FTX Vector, then selecting the airport which needs to be adjusted. Dead easy, works well. Cheers, Mac
  10. G'day Burkhard, I now have My Traffic installed without problems into Prepar3D v2.0. Please attached map with IA showing in red and below that my Prepar3D.cfg settings. I hope they may help. My computer specs are in my signature.

  11. I have now been flying for four hours with both AI Traffic sliders on maximum after uninstalling My Traffic and installing Orbx AI for Australian Airports. No Problems, no crashes.
  12. Crashes occuring over the high country between YBLA and YHOT about 30-60NM into the journey.
  13. Good advise, Andy. However as you can see from my computer specs,(see my signature) I am able to drive on maximum and have had no issues until I tried to install and use some early model aircraft. (FS2004 and FS9). I quarantined these and problems vanished. I also note that there are similar AI problems with Orbx AI traffic concerning a single Cessna aircaft which can cause the sim to crash under certain conditions. Currently I have removed My Traffic and am not having any problems at all. I have locked my FPS with Nividia to 40 and everything is fine.
  14. G'day Burkhard, I started getting OOM crashes after I installed MT 3D. The crashes became less frequent as I backed off the Airline and GA traffic density sliders. But I am afraid that any setting over 10% is causing OOM's. All my other sliders are on maximum. What may or may not be relevent is that I have also several aircraft that I ported over from FS2004 which are causing crashes. I tracked this to a problem with the .mdl file. These aircraft did not cause a problem with P3D v1.4. A detailed explanation of what you experience. See above The geographic Location where you see it Southern Australia The local time when you see it 0600Z Which aircraft do you use? Chinook by UKMIL Which other addons do you have installed? Plan-G v3 In which order have they been installed? Prepar3D v2.0 --> Plang-G Zipped Versions of scenery.cfg and Prepar3D.cfg. Version of your operating System Win 7 64 bit Has FSX been installed on the same Computer? No only the SDK Has uiautomation.dll been replaced on that Computer? Unk Which graphics hardware do you use? GTX780 SOC - See signature And whatever comes to your mind..See above Cheers, Mac
  15. Now working for me. Many thanks for the work around. No more flying "lonely skies".
