Did some testing after the hot fix.
Tweaked my system so that I run around 30 FPS with the planes I use most at demanding Airport.
Test startup : EHAM / RNW 24 / 12.00 / preset broken clouds / Real AI ON / ready for flight
FBW A320 developer version .... 31 FPS
CRJ without Fast WASM up to 36 FPS
CRJ WITH Fast WASM 23 FPS max .. mostly around 19 to 21
Also ... once the thing is complied and is working .. besides switching off developer mode ... also switching off Fast WASM again will keep the CRJ working.
I am sorry, but I cannot confirm your observation. I just ran some tests and the FPS with and without enabling EA on my system is nearly the same. I like the current EA version (using it with ActiveSky and ASCA) and are really satisfied with what I see. Maybe your problem is specific and based on other related weather settings like volumetric clouds, clouds draw distance etc. Do you have the same experience with other planes, Aerosoft Airbusses or is it A330 specific? Please give it a try again......
