146pro and P3Dv5-stutters



  • Hi all,
    experiencing severe P3Dv5-stutters with the 146pro (-300QT).
    Knowing about the P3Dv5-stutter-problem in general, my system is optimized to reduce P3Dv5-stutters as best as possible.
    But now while using 146pro, I am experiencing such P3Dv5-stutters again.
    After trying out almost the half Sunday without finding a solution:

    • Does anyone else have such P3Dv5-stutter-problems when using BAe 146 pro of JustFlight?
    • Possible solutions to solve or at least to reduce the problem?

    My impression: The sutters are mainly caused by playing sound-effects by the BAe 146.
    Heavy stutters happen during/after the touch-down and takeoff noises.
    But also during flight, there are every 1-2 sec micro stutters when flying the 146pro.

    PS: The FPS are good and locked at 40, NVidia and P3Dv5 likewhise.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Our sound plugin uses Prepar3D's own PDK system, if that helps at all with tracking down the cause.



  • Hi Martin
    Thanks for your reply.
    After some more test flights:
    I guess the FPS of the weather radar causes most of the stuttering.
    After setting weather radar FPS to 1/5 of its maxValue the P3Dv5-stuttering is significantly less.
    And nice, with 1/5 of its FPS the weather radar is still doing a good job.

    PS:
    The FPS of the TCAS does not really cause P3Dv5-stutters so far, even when almost at maxFPS.
