  1. 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.
  2. No thanks Dave, not fond of how Discord is setup ... would rather do Skype groups and international phone calls are free Cheers, Rob.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 remain for years and never get combined into my actual full list of items I've bought ... how many years since the transitions, 2 years or more? Other oddities like under "My account" there is a "Orders" and a "Instant Downloads" ... why both? What would be more efficient and better for both myself and Aerosoft sales is an intelligent search so that if I type in "LPMA" (and I'm logged into my account), rather than bringing me to the "sales" page for Madeira with option to "Add to Cart" even though I've already purchased the product ... if found, it would bring me to my Product already purchased page, if not in my purchases, then bring me to the "sales" page for Madeira. Please keep in mind, I'm trying to make this easier for me to want to buy from Aerosoft store and not go elsewhere ... I buy A LOT of products from Aerosoft. Still in US Dave, long story, flight cancellations in Iceland and very poor support/rerouting, but will be back out in UK Feb 24-Mar 5. Cheers, Rob.
  8. 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 two separate locations for downloading our purchased products? I thought these were going to be combined eventually? As it stands now, I'd rather go to SimMarket to buy Aerosoft products just because they provide a good search feature for my existing purchases. I know I've requested this before and I got brushed off, fair enough ... but it's pushed me aware from purchasing from Aerosoft. Cheers, Rob.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Thanks all, questions resolved. The aircraft looks incredible ... so many high quality aircraft so little time. Cheers, Rob.
  12. I uninstalled prior version of CRJ, installed the Pro version. There is no CRJ Manager? The AOM Part pdf says "You will find the livery manager in …\Digital Aviation CRJ\Livery Manager Folder. " I don't have this folder and it seems to be referencing the older CRJ? Was the documentation updated? Thoughts? Cheers, Rob.
  13. Thanks Dave, and thanks others for keeping this open. I know I probably buy too many Aerosoft products ... oh wait, not enough . I tend to do a lot of installing and uninstalling and check to see if products have been updated to ensure I have the latest ... since I have so many wading thru pages and pages can get a bit tedious. I know SimMarket have a search function that does indeed allow me to search my purchases/download. Was hoping that perhaps future web development could introduce a Search "my downloads/orders" option in the Aerosoft's shop? On a related note and extending this idea ... it would be great to see a search option that could compare what I have already purchased with what I don't have for a specific platform (and version of platform). For example search all Airports for P3D V4.x that I currently don't own. In other words, your making it easier for me to buy products quickly. One thing ORBX do very well is make it VERY easy for consumers (like me) to buy products ... almost too easy, but hey that's my problem Another useful option is some AI processing (you folks already know what my purchase habits/patterns are) when I log in ... I obviously have a "trend" established for platforms P3D V4, the XP11 ... find new releases I don't have and list them after I login, making it even easy to see what's new and spend. My 2 cents. Cheers, Rob.
  14. I can't seem to find any way to search my "purchased" downloads? I have a lot of AS products and it's very time consuming to have to navigate thru so many pages ... I could find a search function specific to my downloads? There is an entire store search but nothing that filters just my downloads. Cheers, Rob.
