Re: RTX 3070 will kill a RTX 2080 Ti for $500 ???

Thanks, @Mace, for the info and tip. It does seem, indeedn, that with the cards with lots of VRAM, the CÖU performance is the (new) bottleneck. That then, begs the question how to ensure that the potential (i.e. threads) of the CPU is utilized to the max? How to tune the system so that all threads w...

Re: RTX 3070 will kill a RTX 2080 Ti for $500 ???

@buffy foster, et al.: Man I don‘t know about you native speakers but to me, that video was just an exercise in fast talking. It‘s not as if one can go back and forth in order to get a better understanding by repetition, he just speaks way too fast. And, from my own experience as a speaker (and reci...

Ian,
I am sure you did google the Opel Blitz?!

Can I do something for you to help you model/paint the Blitz?

Re: Still flying her and looking for a repaint

Hi Eberhard,
(I was in Botswana, on my wedding holiday; on the way spent a week in Capetown. Love both!)
I managed to install the Me 109 E by A2A in my P3Dv5, found this thread by coincidence. Can you link me to your repaints, please. (PM if you want).
Tx

Re: Warthog HOTAS Extension: Any Recommendations?

Ron, I have those, too. All three of them, tried them: They are sturdy, very solid. Just the cabling is a bit awkward to plug in... My problem was that they are not curved. As I have my joystick mounted at the front of my seat (on a wooden pedestal), and I could not devise a solution for attachment ...

Re: P3Dv5 CTD after running fine for weeks

This is probably my final entry here in this thread. I can report that the 2. flight across the Channel into France VFR was successful, too. The scenery by France VFR shows a lot more landmarks and the airport Calais-Dunkerque is much more detailed. This time, I flew along the cliffs south od Calais...

Re: P3Dv5 CTD after running fine for weeks

Nick, and now the VR version works also. Very nice! I made the same flight as before, with only the LCD as display, from Manston to Calais. Again, 30m(100 ft) AGL. Exhilarating. Having become adventurous, I have installed Orbx Netherlands TE. If that works, I will install France VFR, Pas-de-Calais. ...

Re: P3Dv5 CTD after running fine for weeks

Nick et al., it worked now! After several CTDs when selecting the Spitfire Mk IIb after flying a default aircraft, I tried a different approach. In the startup screen, I selected the Spit and the different airport (Manston) and klicked „OK“. It worked, the Spit loaded at the Ramp at Manston. I saved...

Re: P3Dv5 CTD after running fine for weeks

Tx Nick.
I‘ve deinstalled everything now, deleted all the files created by P3D, will clean the registry of all entries with LM in their name, using CCleaner. Hopefully, that will give me a good base for the new install.
Wish me luck...

Re: P3Dv5 CTD after running fine for weeks

Thank you, Nick, Lewis! BTW: I sent the same problem description to the LM forum..., no response so far. I had hoped(!) that I would not need to reinstall all my sceneries and aircraft but daren‘t expect it. You confirmed my hopes, thank you! So, I am going to deinstall all of P3Dv5 via the „Program...

Re: P3Dv5 CTD after running fine for weeks

Oh boy! I thought I could avoid having to do IT all over again...
However, as the book says, on your word, I will walk the path: Deinstall all ORBX sceneries, all A2A aircraft, clean all libraries, entries evrywhere,...
Yep, there goes a weekend.
Thanks Lewis( not meant ironically)!

Re: P3Dv5 CTD after running fine for weeks

I‘ e had it again! I did a cpl reinstall of HF1 then, as soon as HF2 came out, I installed Client only(after deinstall old client). Sim starts o. k. with default a/c and scenery. Change to A2A Spitfire Mk IIb crashes the sim. I could trick the Spit into being displayed but as soon as I tried to star...

Re: P3Dv5 CTD after running fine for weeks

Thank you, Nick, for your tipps and hints. I believe that I did profit yet. Tsking your advice, I shall wait for HF 2 to be available; and then I‘ll use that as a pretext to re-install all of P3D, taking over the ORBX sceneries, and newly install my favourite A2A aircraft. Hoping that, when I shall ...
