P3D: TWEAKS & OPTIMIZATIONPLEASE USE THIS STICKY!
Posted 06 October 2011 - 05:19 PM
I simply used the ******* Altuve online tweak tool...I am not exactly sure what entries it puts into the CFG but I would assume that the same entries that work in FSX WILL work in P3D. Hope that helps
Hi, So the following tweaks are working in P3D?. 1. Bufferpools2. Jobscheduler3.Himemfix Also, are they still needed with P3D?.

I'll second that...
I dont use any tweaks in the cfg, and everything runs very well, if i want to tweak i just fire up FSX. If you have reasonable good hardware you sholdnt need to tweak anything, those days are over, some just love to tweak, even if it isnt needed.

I'll third that. P3D v1.2 requires no tweaking, unless you want crisper textures towards the horizon in which case you set the LOD Radius to 6.5 or higher (which unlike FSX, does not get reset back to the default value of 4.5 each time you adjust a slider).I don't tweak FSX at all, and P3D is no different - apart from the bonus of LOD Radius now working :)

Roger that.I've always had problems with it but can't seem to leave it in the garbage can... I recently tried it out again using the REX version by Tim. Makes for nice night flying but alas... same ctd problems. Oh well, I was just curious.
ENB makes problems with FSX for many. In P3D it should also work or make the same problems. I recommend you get rid of it completely and look into Shade.

Thanks for the tip! I had the same problem!
I noticed not all my addon aircraft thumnails show up. Its a minor issue, but Im sort of anal about things, so on furthur inspection, I found that in Prepar3d, the aircraft thumbnail needs to be in the individual texture for each paint scheme. They have to be named "Thumbnail.jpg".Carenado (for example) frequently puts them in the root directory of the plane and names them thumbnail1.jpg, Thumbnail2.jpg etc.. In p3d, you will just get a generic P3d thumbnail instead of the planes picture. To correct this, just copy the correct thumbnail to the directory of that livery and re-name it Thumbnail.jpgIf you do it right, they will all show up correctly.Rob
