  1. I have no commercial conflicts with Aerosoft, these days Aerosoft is primarily a publisher. What I'm currently working on is "freeware" for MSFS. If you're bothered by some comments then there is a reason. You seem to be contradicting yourself. Here is the MSFS SDK I'm working ... not exactly "complete": I agree that P3D V5.x is not where it should be and it's changes in lighting and atmospherics is causing issues ... still. It has some great moments, but yikes, night flights can be p
  2. My post wasn't about MSFS ... your bias is supreme, you win. It was about NOT bringing new supported features to P3D ... that was long before MSFS was even in Alpha (going back years). SpeedTrees goes back to P3D V3.x (4 years ago). This was in response to the repeated rhetoric from Aerosoft about zero sales, leveraging compatibility at minimum work effort over the years ... it wasn't about MSFS. You might want to re-read what you just wrote ... how can a platform have "advanced features" and also be "obsolete"? But thank you for your "suggestions" and allo
  3. Someone suggested my post would be more appropriate here (and I agree) so I'll link it: Cheers, Rob.
  4. I like MSFS, it's a good game and fun and I'm working on supporting it with freeware. However, for a more complete simulator experience I'm still very much using P3D V5.x (and XP) and will continue to do so but unlikely to purchase ANY Aerosoft products based on some of the comments I've read on the Aerosoft management side. MSFS is a moving target. P3D is a moving target. XP is a moving target ... that's how we get better products, they evolve and grow this is a "normal" development cycle. I understand that Aerosoft are concerned about "moving targets" but you've already co
  5. I can't say anything about the A330 or the CRJ in terms of FPS as I haven't tried to load them in V5. But I'm seeing about a 2X increase in FPS ... specifically ORBX GB South over London and London City airport, I can run graphics setting considerably higher in V5 and still sustain 30 FPS ... same graphics settings in V4.5 give me 15 FPS. The shift to DX12 and other performance tuning has been rather dramatic for my setup and in my testing. Cheers, Rob.
  6. No thanks Dave, not fond of how Discord is setup ... would rather do Skype groups and international phone calls are free Cheers, Rob.
  7. But MS/Asobo said they reached out to all 3rd party, are you suggesting "exaggerations"? I signed and agreed to my NDAs under MFS, but still no SDK yet ... more delays ... considering I was told back on October 18th the SDK will be available in a "month" ... almost Feb and still no SDK and it's going to be a "limited feature set" SDK. So agree, shared cockpit seems unlikely in MFS any time soon. Cheers, Rob.
  8. Currently at the top. You betting the Bank on this title? I had no idea it had shared cockpit, how's that gonna work in MFS? Cheers, Rob.
  9. Be sure to set your monitor refresh at 60Hz or higher. Any chance the F-14 will get a PBR makeover for P3D? Cheers, Rob.
  10. Wow, some great adventures around KEF and Iceland ... I wish I had at least been able to do the flight, sadly high winds cancelled the flight ... I guess they must have been really high winds as I understand it the Iceland Air pilots are pretty proficient in bad weather. Faxing an AFM ... isn't that like 1000's of pages? Oye! Cheers, Rob.
  11. Thanks for the response gents, but you're not really solving my issue to my satisfaction and was aware of the work-arounds. Ctrl + F doesn't work ... it will not search my list of purchases, only what's active on the page. Type sensitive dropDownList will quickly forget after about 2 keystrokes so if I type in "Ha" and pause for a fraction of second and then type "m", I don't get "Hamburg" I get "Madeira" ... it's a frustrating experience and as I pointed out doesn't show my "older download orders". I get the feeling "older downloads orders" button is going to remai
  12. I noticed in the "update" threads like this: there is no mention of whether or not a product is to be updated via the AS updater or via a re-download? In addition, would like to request that updated version full version "current" installers be made available in our account download section ... especially of the older installers caused any issues. And finally, PLEASE, PLEASE ... begging now ... provide some ability to search my downloads (I have a lot of them which I think is a good thing, no?) And it's been a few years now, why do we still have
  13. I rarely make these types of extreme comments regarding 3rd party products, but at $45.10 (upgrade pricing) the A330 is by far the best "bang for buck" aircraft I've ever purchased in my decades of buying add-ons. From the systems depth (much more than I expected at this price point) to the beautifully rendered PBR VC, brilliant use of dynamic lighting, excellent sounds, remote CDU support, combined with a host of other fantastic features and FPS friendly. The developers on this project really should take a bow, I'm extremely impressed. Cheers, Rob.
  14. While installing the A330, it has a dependency for VC++ 2019 run times that it installs (I think for TruGlass?) ... After the VC++ 2019 run times complete the installer immediately attempt to restart. Fortunately I was able to cancel the restart and return to desktop to finish the installation ... which wanted to install additional products (RAAS I think). Had I allowed the restart, the installer would have never completed. Probably want to move the dependency that requires a restart as the last step in the installer execution chain. Cheers, Rob.
