Landing lights performance impact

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have noticed that whenever I turn on the landing lights, entering the runway for the take-off roll, the fps is dropping a lot, causing stuttering. If I turn off the lights again, the fps is high again. I have locked my monitor at 30hz so the result is very obvious. The weird thing is that I have dynamic lightning turned off. It happens even in daytime, again with DL turned off. Is there a solution to this? Currently I don't operate the landing+taxi lights because of this fps hit.

I'm not with Aerosoft/Digital Aviation, but you are in the right place for support.  Hang in there, I'm sure someone will help you!

Performance drops with dynamic lights are a Prepar3D v4 issue, not one with the CRJ. I'm sorry, there's nothing we can do to help you here (except recommending to turn off dynamic lights or to get a better video card... which are probably both things you don't consider to be very helpful).

Thank you @Hans Hartmann for the reply, but as I said this happens with Dynamic Lights option turned off. It can easily be a P3Dv4 issue as I have experienced it one more time with the PMDG NGX (also DL off). However with the CRJ it happens to me all the time.

As Hans stated before, DL is a fps hog in P3D v4 and it affects all "heavies" (like PMDG et al). Maybe LM will patch it sometime, they are aware of it. Load the Cup and then the CRJ and dont touch the DL. Your frames should be ok then.

Regards

But guys, I have already said three times. I have this problem without Dynamic Lights (option is un-ticked in P3D menu). I have tried to reinstall drivers, delete shaders, delete cfg. It still happens for me.

The code that loads the Dynamic Light is still running. I never actually believed the DISPLAY of the lights could cause the sim engine to suffer so much. That's 90% done on the GPU.
