just bought today and have memory issues


Question

I've been looking forward to this aircraft for P3d V5 for some time. In fact, I bought it on sale at ORBX but returned it before installing when I read about the many memory issues that users were having. When I saw it had been officially updated for P3D V5 I jumped on it. However, I'm now having memory issues out of the box. When I first installed and ran it and received this message:

I updated my graphics drivers and now I receive this message:

I haven't been following the memory issues closely so I'm not sure if this is progress or not. I don't think it is hardware related as I fly PMDG aircraft in ORBX scenery almost exclusively and have never had an issue. I don't want to spend a lot of time troubleshooting (3 hours on Christmas Eve morning is sufficient) so if there is a quick fix I'd appreciate knowing otherwise I'll just return it and wait for a bit. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I did the DXDIAG fix so I was able to get it loaded. It completely hosed my P3D settings but when I reset them I have a blurry MCP panel. 

I take it that by using the Legacy Render there are graphics features I'm not using?

Hi

 

There are some settings that you can configure in the Addon Manager, Customize button to reduce your VRAM Load.

Some of us have had to disable Trueglass.dll in order to run the current version due to hardware issues on our end e.g. am running a 6GB VGA Card. 

Probably lose out on Trueglass effects after reverting to legacy render

Thx for the reply. I tried lowering setting in general and had some success but I'll try the Trueglass.dll too and maybe that will let me bump up the settings again. I suspect my GTX 1070 may be the culprit? I'm waiting on availability of a higher vram Nvidia or AMD card too so don't mind waiting until then to really ramp up the settings. As is, even at lower res, this is a wonderful aircraft. I've been doing Island hops with the Coolsky DC-9 out of Orbx Honolulu and am looking forward to doing the same with this. 

Maybe my card will arrive just as the MD-11 is released? :)
