That makes sense in my case too - it was flickering when I posted a while back but then took a long break from it. When I returned there was the usual big sim update and then it advised me to update my video drivers too.
I installed the latest Nvidia set and did it as a clean install as usual but this time I have not touched any settings in the NVCP at all, I believe max framerate is off by default and I have a feeling I had it on before. Its working now so I’m leaving the NVCP alone completely
Hi, to those following. After a couple more rather long (>4 hour) flights with zero stutters, I can confirm that, for my system, flying with rolling cache completely disabled (and deleting the rolling cache file) has done the trick. This has nothing to do with photogrammetry or Bing data they remain enabled.
I don’t believe this is a surprise to many since it seems quite a few already knew this. In any event, I don’t experience any downsides at all with rolling cache disabled.
For me this is a simple workaround, and I am a happy camper. Give it a try.
This problem had mostly gone away for me until this week. I am really hoping it is to do with server issues (probably overloaded due to all the updating).
Since updating to SU13 it is back with a vengence. I have a very good system (5800x3D 4090 etc). I load up my aircraft in VR and get 55fps. 20 minutes later by the time I have taxied out it is down to 45fps.
Half an hour into my flight it is down to 23fps.
On final approach I can barely manage 18fps.
After landing it is down to an excruciating 12fps.
Reloading a new flight with the same plane in the same location, back to 55fps.
Please, please, please, please, please fix this issue (as I said, it had recently improved with me do nothing to change my system or install).
After reading the SU13 notes and seeing this problem marked as fixed I had high hopes, but it is worse than ever!
This is just getting ridiculous now. Can not complete a flight more than 2 hours and 40 minutes without these giant pauses/stutters which usually occur on the decent. Temps are fine … system specs are good … rolling cache deleted and off. I am out of ideas.
