  1. Hello Jocko No, If you wish to update Prepar3D there is no benefit in doing a complete uninstall & reinstall, The update components will resolve this quickly for you. Its a personal preference really as to what you update, The Client component is mandatory though to update Prepar3D, Content and Scenery are an optional update. Most folks just update the Client. Note: Ensure you first uninstall the existing Client before you run the updated Client. If you also update the Content ensure you then launch the FTX Central control panel to veri
  2. Hello thorax Welcome to the FTX Forums. Did you Install the Orbx Libraries ? Did you see this message at the bottom of the FTX Central Control panel ? Ensure you click on the blue to update. Then launch Prepar3D and test. Try that and let me know how you get on
  3. Hello Carlos Pretty much what Nick posted. That's an incredible amount of Scenery you are loading at once. Yes try a Scenery library manager to help things along. I don't use them myself so I can't recommend one but there are plenty of reviews and topics about them
  4. Hello Don Lots of different situations will Impact on loading times, Hardware, Amount of Scenery, Ai Add Ons, High settings and so on. 12 minutes seems long though. What other Scenery Add Ons do you have Installed (Non Orbx) ? -------- Here is a quick test you can try to help narrow down where the long loading times are coming from. Navigate to the location below and Click and Drag the complete "Prepar3D v4 Add-ons" folder out of this location and pop it onto your Desktop, This will temporarily disable these Add Ons.
  5. Hello Don Did you see this message to update the Orbx Libraries at the bottom of the FTX Central Control panel ? Ensure you click on the blue to update. This might be a contributing factor as to why the Orbx scenery has not activated. If you have already Installed the Orbx Libraries please try and reinstall them again To Reinstall the "Orbx Libraries" Delete the version text file located below (Delete the red box) Prepar3D v4 ► ORBX ► User Documents ► Versions ► FTX_AA_ORBXLIBS.TXT Right cli
  6. Hello There is no requirement (You must) steps to take after updating your graphics driver, Just recommended steps to take really. It is recommended but not required to delete the Shaders folder and the Prepar3D.cfg file and let Prepar3D generate these again when launched next after completing the following actions 1) Updating your Graphics Driver 2) Installing a new Graphics Card 3) Updating Prepar3D using the Update Component Installers (Client) Shaders folder: Depending on what updates either your new graphics driver has Inje
  7. Hello Stew Apologies for my late reply, Did you get sorted ?
  8. Hello Stewart Are you able to launch Prepar3D ? Or does this crash happen in flight ? Mostly texture programs will add to and or modify these locations, ShadersHLSL, Textures, Effects\Textures, Scenery\World\Texture, Scenery\Global\Texture, Sound (And maybe More) Does the Rex control panel have a "Cloud Sizing algorithm" option ? This modify's the ShadersHLSL folder For certain , If i was to use a texture program I would then delete my Shaders folder and let Prepar3D generate this again when launched next. ---
  9. Hello I.J The Issue you are having is due to the space between P&M and Graphix in your user name Please see this post below by Nick Cooper Click on Nick Cooper replied to a topic
  10. Hello westbros That's good news Yes a learning curve for myself also
  11. Hello westbros If you type FTX Central into your Windows search bar it will appear in the Options, Then right click on it and click Pin to taskbar, FTX Central will now be located in the bottom tray of your screen. You can also click Open file location, Then right click on FTX Central 3 > Send to > Desktop (Create shortcut) It will now be located on your Desktop Empty, As in no Prepar3D v4 Add ons folder ? Or empty as in no Objectflow Add-on.xml file ? Did you launch Prepar3D first and then close it down again ?
  12. Hello westbros It will show the Add On's that are being launched from the Prepar3D v4 Add Ons folder in Documents, So if you have 6 Add On folder in this location it will show 6 Add On entries in the Add On menue. --------------- I'm in the process of setting up a new User Account called Gary & Adrian I will let you know my results either late tonight or tomorrow evening
  13. Hello westbros As Nick has pointed out Your User name could in fact be the cause of this But Changing the actual name for your folder directory is a bit tricky, This would involve you creating another User account and removing your old account. The alternative is also a bit messy, You could add another User account to Windows 10 (Standard account) Prepar3D would still be in place no problem, But you would need to download and Install FTX Central again, All your Orbx files would still be located in the same place. Then you would launch Prep
