I’ve recently formatted my PC and had it solely used for DCS for a while to keep the clutter off it. However I’m slowly building up my funds to start the upgrade process all over again as shes getting tired…
So I’ve decided to re install XP11 again and give it another go as I didnt totally gel with it like I have with DCS (I think about Tomcats too much) as I’m desperate to try the air hauler stuff and I think I’m going to have to fall down the rabbit hole. Plus with the vulkan update I may have slight improvement in performance this time
Could anyone give me some tips on some decent (preferably uk) scenery that is free and reasonable quality, failing that I’m quite willing to give forkboys stuff a go in the US and do some Bush flying.
Any free or cheap bush planes (like the bush mod for the C172 or similar. I know we have loads of threads on releases etc I’m more after your opinions and favourites. I’m probably not gonna be able to buy any mods once I get air hauler so free planes it is for a while (although I quite like the kodiak and king air 350…)
Any help appreciated as this is a fresh install I want to make it a bit more entertaining for myself this time around.
Orbx has South UK free give you a demo of their products. Other than that, there is tons of freeware that is high quality on the xplane forums. Good luck and have fun it’s a long way down to the bottom of this rabbit hole.
After update to to 11.50 X plane informs me that I need to upgrade my graphics drivers to AMD adrenaline 2020.
I do this and I’ve had nothing but BSOD and pain and anguish all night. My pc REALLY doesn’t like this driver.
I’ve used the cleanup tool, tried different versions and tried rolling back. I’ve now reached the point where I’m getting too irritated to continue and have vowed to never ever buy or rent another Amd product again in my life… this happens every time i try to update the drivers.
Sod it. I’m going to re format my pc again (Again!!!) and just stick with safe and comfortable DCS till I can afford a proper upgrade.
It seems that quite a few of us have experienced instability and BSOD’s recently. Both @smokinhole and myself and now you. My system seems to have settled down now, and I believe Eric’s has too.
I forget, do you have a Rift?
For me, I reinstalled Oculus Home (Eric found a procedure to remove all trace of Oculus from your system before reinstalling).
I updated my graphics drivers.
I updated my over-clock manager (in my case the MSI Dragon Suite)…
After that things improved, with fewer crashes, and then over a few days everything settled down. Definitely weird.
It is a verifiable fact that Oculus was triggering the BSODs on my end. Completely erasing all evidence of it on my machine and reinstalling fresh was the cure. We are all different but in my case it was crystal clear.
Well, after wiping oculus from my system and starting in safe mode and using the cleanup tool to remove all the GPU drivers, I finally seem to have a clean install of the new drivers and it seems to be working… but I’ve only tried it very briefly.
I loaded x plane with vulkan and I have a MASSIVE increase in performance. I’m not exaggerating either its CRAZY smooth compared to before.
More testing later but I’m slightly less flustered today
