    • Hallo Otto, dessen bin ich mir bewusst. Bis jetzt hatte ich noch keinerlei Probleme. Muss dazu sagen, dass ich viele meiner Szenerien in einer xml zusammenfasse. Es gibt z. B. eine für FligthBeam, für FSDT, FlyTampa und auch für Aerosoft (Helgoland, Bergen, Oslo und bald auch EDDF). Die Scenery cfg bzw. library rühre ich nicht mehr an und rufe sie im p3d auch nicht mehr auf.   Mike
    • Thanks for that post.   Let me be very honest. We hate those cfg tweaks. They cost us a bloody fortune in support because ANYTHING you do in there should be done with a very deep knowledge on exactly what is happening.  Those affinity mask tweaks for example are fine example. Many people tweak that without even knowing how many actual cores (not virtual) they have. They got a friend online who believes he had great benefit of some mask and his friends all use it. The fact they don't have the same amount of cores seems to be lost in that communication. So there you are, with a super i7 with 6 cores and that mask your friend has DISABLED 2 cores.    Microsoft was not crazy, other than the highmem tweak every single tweak you do has side effects.  Lockheed is even less crazy and other then on very specific systems (8 core + SLI) I have never seen any confirmed proof that a tweak helped. Dovetails is also not crazy and they did some good work on tweaking FSX. I have literally never seen any tweak that did not have more negative side effects the positive effects (making it faster means doing things faster and thus less looking not as good). I know that people who spend months tweaking their sim will think I am crazy. But P3d V4 start on all of my systems when windows starts. And we done extensive side by side test on exactly identical hardware of all the major tweaks. We have invited people who written guides on tweaking into our office to show they could make systems perform better without affecting how things look. We simply have not seen it.   We honestly do not mind if you think tweaks make your sim better, we just ask that if you feel our software is not okay you test that on a system that is as Microsoft, Lockheed or Dovetails intended. I believe that is not too much to ask.    
    •   I think I expected some warnings and not moving controls... but now I have the Manual in front of me and if I get it right then is 3A powering most of the controls, so as  far as I dont trie to use a reverser or so all should work normal? 
    •   Oops, sorry I missed the DL label when I checked everything ... didn't realize that was specific to DL.   AI Aircraft will add to that count as will FSDT GSX vehicles, so if one has a lot of AI aircraft with EDDF's 180 it is very possible 250 has been hit ... you can test to see if more lights appear by changing the following: In Prepar3d.cfg (I don't recall the section off hand) MAX_POINT_LIGHTS=250
      MAX_SPOT_LIGHTS=250   You can change the value to anything you like, 500, 1000, etc.    Cheers, Rob.
    • I also really dislike this "whatever" new view system created for the CRJ. I understand that it might be a minor thing for many costumers but then, I ask myself why not keeping an option to use it as default, just like the AS Airbus (which is by the way, my favorite add on of all times). It's the only killing thing for me right now, despite of the little bugs, which is normal for any new released add on.  I hope that somehow, using the default method for views and 2D panels is considered !    Fabio Darolt
    •     I compared Justsim EDDH, EDDL and Aerosoft EDDF and EDDS. Justsim looks in my personal opinion generally better, i don't find any dark airplanes in places where they should not be.  1+2 EDDF , 3 EDDH, 4 EDDS    
    • As I started this thread I had really bad FPS problems. I tried many things, nothing helped... but then I remembered the words of you Mathijs (I think you have to write this very often) in a lot of threads here on the forum - USE CFG TWEAKS WITH CARE.   I thought, okay I have nothing to loose, lets trie delete the Affinity Mask out of the FSX.cfg. This was my first thought because I had read somewhere that this tweak could lead to FPS problems and is not always helpful. So I startet FSX - alongside Active Sky 2016 - because I wanted to do a testflight with the CRJ. On startup Active Sky yelled at me that there is no Affinity Mask entry in the cfg and that AS2016 is able to autoconfigure this for me... I re-thinked my decision and clicked "Okay". Later on I checked on what number AS has set the Affinity mask, in my case it was 84.   The result was: My FPS skyrocketed up from around 10 up to 40, 50 and so on in the VC and over 100 on the outside view   The moral of this is: use cfg tweaks with care! And let sometimes do AS the work for you 
    • What did you expect to happen exactly?
    • Can you share your hardware configuration and your simulator?
