  1. No I didn't post a support ticket. It was definitely the drive failing, I formatted the drive which took 24 hours to complete, then windows wouldn't boot saying that storage drive was faulty, it was an old drive and has been replaced with a brand new ssd drive double the capacity. Wasn't an Orbx Central software problem after all.
  2. I started to wonder if the drive itself was the problem, so I moved everything onto a different drive and so far it seems to of cured the problem.
  3. OK, started pc, all products installed on my G drive ssd were listed as not installed again, I clicked on the install button again for all of the products listed as not installed, again it just scanned and then said installed, shut down central fully from the toolbar, re launched it without closing down the pc and all the add ons on G drive are listed as not installed again.
  4. Fired the pc back up and re installed all my products that were missing, it didn't download anything just scanned the folders and they were then ticked as installed. Closed central down, restarted central everything still installed, tried a couple more times and everything is OK. So it appears it's something to do with a full pc shut down and start up. I've now added all Orbx folders and msfs folders to exclusions in bitt defender, so I will test again tomorrow.
  5. OK, I've tried that, after re installing Orbx Central most of the products were marked as to be installed, I installed them, most were instant as they were already there, some it had to re download. After everything had tick as being installed I restarted the pc and launched Orbx Central I got the error message again and most products were again listed as being not installed again.
  6. OK, thanks Nick, I will try that, I dud un install it and re install it but didn't remove the files you've suggested, so I will give that a try and see what happens. Thanks again.
  7. Yes, it's weird. When I launch Central most of the add ons are listed as being not installed, I left my computer running all night re installing all the ones that were showing no longer installed, switched my pc off before I went to work, came home switched it back on and the majority have a greyed circle again and showing the install button again, I really don't get what's going on with it.
  8. Hi Nick, Thanks for the reply. No my msfs is on one ssd drive, my Orbx installation products are on another internal ssd drive, its been working fine since I first installed msfs and progressively added msfs products as they've been released. I installed msfs when it 1st released and Orbx I've had since FSX days then p3d v3 and V4, but currently only use msfs.
  9. Hi, I'm having an issue with Orbx central, I've tried re installing all my products 3 times, every time I restart my pc and launch central I get the same error message, and most of my products are not listed as installed, although they are still in my msfs community folder. I've tried un installing central and re installing it as well and that also hasn't fixed my problem. central.log
  10. Hi all, I've asked on Facebook and on the Liverpool Airport creators Web page what the coverage area is for this airport, but I've had no replies. Can anyone tell me how far out the coverage is please, I need to know if I need to disable my Liverpool City add on, thanks.
  11. No I haven't, but I've always had it on and never had a problem before, so clearly something is wrong with this airport.
  12. Hi all, Its been a few weeks since I tried to start a flight from LOWI, every time I do, doesn't matter where I put the plane on the airfield its as if Ive crashed into something. Ive tried un installing and re installing, verified files, changed option settings, still crash on start. Any help please.
  13. Interesting post. I turned down buildings and vegetation to normal, had no traffic of any kind and struggled to get it smooth in rural areas, just to try it I loaded into EGBB and got 5.6 fps slide show. Totally un usable, never had this bad performance with any orbx scenery or even horizon genx photo scenery with treescapes, which horizon I can get steady locked 32 fps with buildings and vegetation on very dense. Might try your recommendation to see how how it performs.
  14. Barmouth is around 8:30 minutes in, the rail bridge is visible.
  15. Well it covers Barmouth, so it goes a fair way north.
  16. I totally agree, I've been using photo scenery for the UK for some time in FSX and P3D and I generally fly lower down. I have most of orbx sceneries but up until now I've used horizon gen x photo scenery for the UK, even though I also had FTX EU England, Wales and Scotland. True earth is a big step forward and is what Earth simulations were working on a few years ago. I am really happy orbx is covering the UK with true earth and will be buying all true earth products for whatever part of the globe they cover.
  17. Yes it does. Not sure about EGOV as I haven't tried there yet but EGOD is covered, fly over Barmouth and up the Mawdach estuary and enter through Cad West.
  18. Found you on YouTube Kevin, following you now. I have some FSX and p3d V3 videos on my channel. I haven't done any P3D V4 videos yet as I haven't been happy with how it looked and performed, but I did a flight out of Llanbedr and flew the mach loop and was very happy with how it looked with true earth GB and it flowed along quite well with only a few micro stutters, so I may start doing some videos again
  19. Ok, thanks. Llanbedr, EGOD is ok. I will post if I find any conflicts, I will also check with UK 2000 if they will be updating the packages to match up with the new and superior photo scenery from orbx.
  20. Will UK 2000 airfields work with this, Ive already bought the scenery, just not got around to trying it yet.
  21. Flying over Worcester eh. looks really good and seems to be nice and smooth on your system. I purchased mine last night, should be trying it out shortly.
