Re: A PBR upgrade for the P3Dv4 C172

Hi Nick,

I have seen similar reports on the Avsim forum.
If I update my C172 and also do not like the result what would be the cleanest way to be able to return to my current version?

Thanks in advance.

How to move my A2A fleet to new PC build?

I just finished a new PC build and wanted to move my 3 A2A aircraft to the new build with the fresh install of P3 Dv4.5, I deactivated P3D on the old PC. I simply copied my A2A folder from my old PC add-on folder into the new PC’s P3DV4.5 add- on folder and they were all recognized at the startup ...

Re: Pop ups + VR

The appropriate config file can be modified to place any VR pop up wherever you want them. I have modified all my individual aircraft to custom place pop ups inside the cockpit. There are 4 different lines of code that can be added to adjust the pop ups and these don’t effect the 2D pop ups as the...

Re: Sound source question and request

Thanks Lewis I understand.

Not sure if it could be a future feature to include in a rev or not but please keep it on the books as I know of 4 other VR fliers that are faced with the same issue I am.

Re: Sound source question and request

Hi Lewis Yes it is ironic. I will play with the audio file a bit more but it doesn't look promising. One last question is there any way to get the cockpit sound to behalf as the external sound does since it switches fine? Obviously the two sound outputs are managed differently now and I would be wil...

Re: Sound source question and request

Lewis I read in another forum post that deleting the audio.dat file would remedy my issue however I tried that by moving it out of the folder and it made no difference. I assume there is no file edit I can make to disable the sound menu and have the audio output track the default assigned Windows au...

Re: Sound source question and request

Hi Lewis There are several reasons I tend to switch back and forth. One is I do a lot of demos for the San Diego Flightsim Club I am a member of. However primary when I set up long flight plans with P2A and my GA aircraft with GTN 750 or my Aerosoft A320 or PMDG 737 it is easier to do so in 2D mode ...

Re: Sound source question and request

Thanks for the quick response. I assume it's not supported and will not be looked into as an option based on your reply? That's very unfortunate and you are the only add-on aircraft in existence that I know of that doesn't support this. This makes VR flying the way most everyone uses it completely i...

Sound source question and request

I fly between VR using an Oculus Rift S and my 4K monitor with built in speakers. Frequently I switch between the two sources and have a method using VoiceAttack to quickly switch the audio out, the mic input, and the MS speech profile with the use of a voice command or assigned button push. The pro...

Re: Blurry Gauges in VR

One of the big features for VR is single-pass rendering which is especially important in apps that tend to bottleneck the CPU - like P3D or FSX (with FlyInside). For single-pass rendering, the scene is described once and the video card essentially carves out the two eye views. Without single-pass r...

Re: Headphones and A2A

This function was added because it was requested by our customers. If you want to always use default audio device like it used to, delete the audio.dat file from "My documents/A2A" directory, and don't use the new audio menu afterwards. Michael Thanks for the quick response. I appreciate the work a...

Re: Headphones and A2A

Hello Curt, Are you using Prepar3D v4? If so, sounds like you've discovered a new feature which was introduced with the latest round of updates . Added an option to select which audio device Accu-Sim sounds are played through ('Add-ons' menu → 'Accusim sound menu'). If you're using FSX or an...

Any better understanding regarding this issue?

Windshield Rain Effect Mouse Issue with P3D v4.4 VR

Hi Lewis I wanted to let you know there's a new issue with the new windshield effects when using the latest release of P3Dv4.4. When I want to use my virtual mouse cursor in VR it will not penetrate the windshield as it sees it as a cockpit surface. You might ask "why is this a problem?" Well when I...
