  1. Here we go again.. New driver 378.92 released. I was using the well tried and tested 376.33 with no VAS issues whatsoever. That until the Battlefield 1 update mandated driver upgrade for it to work. So I installed the 378.78 and the first flight was marked by a massive VAS OOM halfway between Poland and Estonia, memory leaking slowly and painfully. Now I'm going straight for the update.. Fingers crossed.

    VAS and Performance tips!

    Hello all, I'm a new customer to FlightSimLabs, and I'm not disappointed. I have use both the boxed versions of FSX, and FSX-SE, and am now running Prepar3D and trying not to look back. Over the years, and in conference with a friend of mine who is also an avid simmer, I have discovered some performance enhancing techniques for your sim. Some of these can be easily found on the internet, but here, I am going to focus on P3D, and without getting too specific as to my system settings. The reason being that P3D is more stable than FSX, and is delicate, but more fault-tolerant. I

    A Guide to MipMapping

    Hey Guys, I just wanted to make a simple tutorial on how to mipmap and optimize your aircraft textures,both internally and externally. This subject has been discussed in the past,but is more or less ignored by most people.There is an assumption that we pay for the best quality scenery,aircraft etc..with an underlying assumption that the product has been thoroughly optimized.Most people find out later..that this infact is not true.In interest of keeping this topic as short as possible,I will not go into further details about this. But why mention something
  4. Did anyone measure the difference in VAS consumption between VC & VC+2D Cockpit installation with 2K and 4K textures each, yet? This info would save me two reinstallations, i just tried VC only up to now.
  5. DISCLAIMER: Just because it works for me doesn't mean it works for everybody. Only use it at your own risk!!! How did I test it: I made two flights with the A320 from Taxi2Gate EDDM to FlyTampa EKCH. Weather was provided by AS16+ASCA and I have FTX Global+Vector+OpenLC EU + Envtex installed. My P3D settings are much higher compared the recommended settings and I did not disable any other scenery. I reduced FTX Vector quite a bit, but did not disable it completly. Both flights were done using the same livery, same P3D settings, same scenery, same flight plan and same time of th

    VAS And My Compromises

    Hey Guys, I don't have a super duper machine, but I feel like I got MY setup in P3D working perfectly for me with no issues in all my payware. These include PMDG products, and the Majestic DH8D, AS2016 and Orbx and all that. Now, new in my hanger is the ever so beautiful FSLabs A320. I bought it when it was out for FSX and I actually clean-installed my copy of FSX for it. I didn't install any Orbx or even remotely try to set it up like I have my P3D set up. I basically only had the Airbus, and a few select airports I wanted to fly to. I loved it! So, ba
  7. Hi, I realized that after the update to 1.92 I need approx. 10% more VAS, so after a flight from EDDL - EGBB I'm on 3500. With the old version I'm on 3100. Nothing else has changed. Any ideas?
  8. Hi everyone I have a limited amount of technical knowledge withn the Flight Simulator world and always rely on the forums for advice and to learn by reading other users comments and experience, although I realise that not all comments are helpful, sometimes you have to read between the lines. At the moment I use FSX SE and have purchased the A320. I congratulate the developers on a supurb product. In order to compliment the high specifications that new aircraft use I am intending to upgrade my computer to high specifications and also purchase P3D to compliment and

    My Findings so far

    So went ahead and upgraded to the P3D version after being with the FSX version since day 1. VAS usage was as expected and as in FSX you do need to compromise slightly on your scenery settings. Took a flight from FlightBeam's KIAD (an absolute VAS muncher) to Imaginesim's KATL (Another monster scenery) in horrendous weather. VAS started at 3.4Gb peaked at 3.7Gb and apart from the odd brief spike to 3.9Gb, while taxiing to the gate on arrival,(and the dreaded OOM chime from FSUIPC) it remained stable and did not OOM. My P3D setup P3D V3.4 (settings as per the guide exce

    Thank you!

    Good afternoon :D, I see a lot of complaining on the forums, but barely anyone that says thank you to everyone here for making the A320-X such an amazing plane to fly. So let me say thank you FlightSimLabs, for making an amazing airplane. Secondly I see a lot of people complaining about VAS issues both in P3D and FSX. I personaly use FSX which as most of us know is worse on VAS then P3D is. Atm I'm flying the bus from Gibraltar to Alicante, for both I have scenery installed and running at 2048 textures. and this is the VAS that I'm on atm (see picture).. I will let the data speek

    [Resolved] Persisting OOM crashes

    First of all let me say that I absolutely love this product! I really want to enjoy it, but I keep getting OOM crashes almost every other flight, which is really ruining the experience for me. I've read the FAQ, and I configured my FSX(SE) setup accordingly. Actually I have a fresh FSX install with only the A320 and a few sceneries installed. I have the DX10 fixer and used the profile from the FAQ. I'm using ASN but didn't install any cloud sets. I have no performance issues per se, with FPS in a very usable 20-30 range. Since getting the A320, about 40% of my flights end with OOM C

    FSX A320 crashes (VAS), etc.

    I'm really disappointed !! It can not be that I have to reduce everything to start a plane without crashing? Even with aircraft of PMDG there are no such problems. I as a user have a feeling I was working as a beta tester, whether new CFG file Ramsoftware or other settings, and I speak here of hours with my Flight Club in the group all has nothing helped real. So I delete all favorite airports again? The same applies to traffic. Without traffic, it is not fun !! On the Internet you will find closed threads and no one has a perfect solution. If you write to the support, the answer is a link to
  13. Hello Concorde-Fans, To those of you who want to see how the VAS behaves in FSX:SE and Prepar3D in combination with Concorde-X, I have a video for you. In it, I have measured the VAS consumption in identical flight situations under comparable settings in FSX:SE and P3D v3.2. To make things more interesting, I have actually run the test in three modes - FSX:SE DX9, DX10 and Prepar3D v3.2 (since it is known that DX10 can provide a sizeable VAS relief over DX9). In the tests, I flew Concorde-X from KIAD to KJFK, similarly to what I did in the tests that I conducted over
  14. During testing of v1.3 of ConcordeX I noticed that my available VAS suddenly dropped by a huge amount when I was preparing the aircraft for departure from London Heathrow. I initially suspected a 'bad' texture in my Ai Traffic program but eventually found that opening the Flight Planner dialogue in FSX to load a plan was responsible. Only a few hundred Mb is lost if the Edit option is avoided but if that option is selected the map eats an enormous amount of memory and it's never released. Before opening the planner I had 1230Mb available. After I closed it having accessed the map option it f
  15. Hello Concorde-Fans, With free time to spare, I thought to conduct an experiment and measure the VAS (virtual address space) at different scenery and traffic settings. VAS is known to be a notorious issue for most of you, as it is the most common source for OOM's, so this report might help established or potential ConcordeX flyers getting an idea of how much they can expect the add-on to consume. In the following, I have described the precise actions of my replicated test flights, so that you can follow it and possibly reconstruct the flights yourself. I have replicated three test flights
