  1. Thanks so much. I will look at the sites and try the AM. I appreciate you.
  2. The joy didn't last long. The next flight with this plane resulted in more stutters. Quite possibly it is something else causing the issue but I have no idea where to start troubleshooting. (see TrueGlass thread)
  3. How to Disable TruGlass?

    This could very well be the case. However, how does one figure out what to shut off on the computer which is used only for the flight sim? My experience with the 717 seems to be a crap shoot. I have had acceptable flights and then powered up the computer and sim and had a "jerky" flight. I certainly wish I could solve the issue because I enjoy the plane when all is running well. I have recently just put it back in the hangar because the experience is always so unpredictable. What I do know is the PMDG flies acceptably smooth all of the time. Does anyone know of a list of items within the computer that can be shut off without negatively affecting computer performance? Where do you begin to troubleshoot non-sim related items that are running that can be causing unwanted stuffers within the sim?

    For me it wasn't all about the total FPS. It was the occasional spike downwards to as low as 5 FPS. It happened about every 10 seconds.
  5. Thanks. I disabled TrueGlass and at least it is flyable without becoming a slideshow. I guess you give up something for every bit of eye candy you get. Now if they could make it stable. My first flight without TrueGlass was a short hop from KLAS to KSAN. I use all 3rd party airports. Before departure I changed to the outside view because for some unknown reason the throttle took off and put me in the terminal. As usual when I leave the cockpit it crashed about 60 miles from KSAN. I went back and started over...again with the throttle issue but I did not leave the cockpit. The result was a good flight with no issues.
  6. Title says it all. I spend more time working on the plane to get a smooth flight than I do actually flying it.....which I love to do! I attempted a flight today from KSEA to KSFO. ASv4 gave me overcast. FPS were between 24 & 32 but drop to 7 & 10. I have my Nvidia set to 30 FPS locked and the P3D v4.1 set to unlimited. None of the graphic sliders are pushed to the far right. They are all set very modestly for my system. I tried it with and without the Hardware Rendering. Not much difference but went with the Hardware Rendering enabled. I do not change views to outside for fear of crashing the sim later on in the flight which happens frequently. I even lowered the LOD for this flight to see if that helped. I flew to about 10,000 ft and the stutters were unacceptable. I exited out of the flight. I immediately began the same flight, same time of day, same weather and same settings with the PMDG 737-700. Very smooth with the same FPS but not low spikes. I turned up the LOD setting with no drop in performance. I have all the latest updates for the 717. It seems to have gotten worse with the latest update however it never performs very well. I hope you are able to improve on the performance of this plane because it is a joy when it performs well. I have a Jetline System i7 4790 @ 4 GHz overclocked, 16 g Ram, 64 Bit Win 7, GeForce GTX 1080Ti.
  7. I get the drastic fluctuation of 32 fps to 6, 7 or 8 about every 20 seconds or so.
  8. P3D4.1 ntdll.dll CTD

    Did this work for you Skipy?
  9. P3D4.1 ntdll.dll CTD

    It doesn't give me the option to re-open it again. It simply goes right to the notepad page. Is there a way to reset the download so I can try again? Thanks
  10. P3D4.1 ntdll.dll CTD

    What should that download be opened with. I attempted to open it with notepad and got a page full of unreadable stuff. Now I can't open it at all.
  11. Yes. I have also had many CTD. I am going to do a clean reinstall tomorrow and see if that helps.
  12. On two out of three flights I have experienced a CTD. Both happened approximately 1 1/2 hour into flight. The successful flight was much shorter. i7-4790 @4GHz, 16 Ghz RAM, 64 Bit, GTX 1080Ti, Win 7, P3D V4.1 , Active Sky
  13. Banana in real B717?

    Thanks for the reply. Just one more, how about a pause at the top of descent? Many of us enjoy getting the plane in the air and then move on to other things until descent. It is a great option in my opinion. The plane is much more stable now and I am certainly enjoying flying it.
  14. Banana in real B717?

    But does the blue arrow move as you descend based on your angle of descent? Or, does it just show you where to begin descent? The banana or arrow sure assist while descending.
  15. Banana in real B717?

    I'm just curious, does the real plane have an elevation forecaster such as the 737 banana or the airbus arrow to provide you where your current decent rate will take you. I apologize for not knowing the technical name of these functions. If they are designed in the real plane will they be added to the TFDI 717? Thanks
