  1. Are both monitors connected to the same 980Ti? Are you using SLI?
  2. Hey all, To address the issue with some of our customers noticing the entire cockpit blank and no switches that are clickable : We've noticed that an oversight in the Addon Manager allowed customers to install the aircraft to Prepar3D v4 without participating in the Community Opt-In Beta. However, this resulted in the Addon Manager installing the 32 bit version of the aircraft to the 64 bit simulator. As expected, the entire cockpit turned INOP. This issue has been resolved with the latest version of the Addon Manager. Please uninstall the 717 completely and re-run the Addon Manager to receive its update. If you wish to participate in the Community Opt-In Beta to receive the build for Prepar3D v4, please follow these instructions: https://blog.tfdidesign.com/2017/01/30/introducing-the-community-opt-in-beta-and-1-0-6-0/
  3. Can you try updating to the latest COB and report back on how your frames are?
  4. Hi Erik, Is P3D's dynamic lighting setting switched ON when this happens? What happens if it's OFF?
  5. Just curious, was it the Hardware Rendering option?
  6. Hey Mark, Here are a few things to try, as mentioned from other topics similar to yours: 1. Reinstall the aircraft, 2. Make sure you have the June 2010 version of DirectX 11 (found here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download/details.aspx?id=8109 ), 3. Toggle the Hardware Rendering option.
  7. Couple things to try here, as mentioned in the other threads: Couple of things to try: 1. Reinstall the aircraft, 2. Make sure you have the June 2010 version of DirectX 11 (found here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download/details.aspx?id=8109 ), 3. Toggle the Hardware Rendering option. See if any of those work for you.

    Hey Alan, Couple of things to try: 1. Reinstall the aircraft, 2. Make sure you have the June 2010 version of DirectX 11 (found here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download/details.aspx?id=8109 ), 3. Toggle the Hardware Rendering option. We are currently looking into what is causing this for a number of users. Try those steps and let me know if any of them worked for your system.
  9. Welcome to the community! If you are already subscribed to the Community Opt-In Beta, you just have to open and run your TFDi Design Addon Manager and it will automatically update the aircraft to the latest release. If not, you will have to add the Community Opt-In Beta to your account. Instructions can be found here:
  10. Looking into this. From my experience, 64 bit will give a smoother experience to the WXR / TERR systems.
  11. Which graphics card and CPU are you running? P3D version?
  12. To turn on terrain: There is no need to turn on the WXR system to WX/T. You just need to push the WX/TERRAIN button. If you are not seeing the terrain display, please make sure: Your graphics card is compatible with DirectX 11 You have the June 2010 DirectX Runtime - can download from Microsoft here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download/details.aspx?id=8109 Your antivirus has not blocked / quarantined / deleted the MV_EGPWS.dll from your 717 SimObjects folder You are in the vicinity of terrain. It will not show flat / relatively flat areas
  13. Correct, we display weather from both REX/Milviz WX Advantage and Active Sky. Can you confirm for me that your DirectX version (seen in the uninstall window) shows as June 2010? The radar has been compiled with June 2010 so make sure that is the version you're running before we drill further into your system.
  14. Keep us posted! On a side note, are you going to be reinstalling Windows or just uninstalling your current MOBO drivers and install new drivers after the switch? I'm just curious, as I was always under the impression a full Windows reinstall is required after a board switch until I read an article the other day where someone did a switch and just uninstalled/installed new drivers...
