  1. Happy I found this because I was just about to report the same issue. Wouldn't it be good if the installation process of Orbx LOWI automatically disabled the Asobo version of LOWI? When you know about this issue. By simply replacing true with false as suggested in Content.xml
  2. Do you need the in flight functions to fully use and enjoy the software? I understand the moving map but what else will you miss in VR?
  3. I was able to find the answer to the question elsewhere and sadly, the answer is no VR support at this time. Apparently, this is not because of the developer of this program but how Asobo at this time doesn't allow third party applications inside their VR environment in MSFS. If and when this will change, I guess no one can answer right now. Still, I'm thinking of getting the software. As I don't see how you wouldn't be able to still use it. Sure, you won't be able to see the moving map etc while in VR. However, you can still get your job assignments before switching to VR. In the same way, you can end the mission once you've landed at the destination after switching out of VR. While you can enjoy the flight from A to B in VR. All you need to know really as I understand it from a few clips I've watched is the origin and destination airports. If I'm missing something in my reasoning around this, please let me know.
  4. And here's one more having the very same question. Anyone of you guys already found the answer elsewhere? Considering the complete silence in here since you posted this very valid question back in December last year.
  5. Many thanks for this Raz, this is great news and I'm very much looking forward to the update
  6. I realize that Jon. Hence I quoted Ed's post hoping for exactly what you mention, how he might have some news for us. Or if not, maybe will be able to reach out to Gaya (again).
  7. Another month passed and still nothing. Can you please let us know if you talked to the developer or found out what updates we can expect in the near future for this product? Just landed on runway 34 and seeing this takes away quite a bit of the fun using this product
  8. Hello Ed, Just wanted to ask if you were able to talk to this partner and if you have any news to share with us in regards of upcoming fixes to address the current issues?
  9. Thanks for commenting Ed, would be great if the long outstanding issues could be addressed by the developer.
  10. I'm 100% with you Nick in what you say above. Which is something I've also made clear in previous posts, how you can't be held technically responsible for someone else's products. This is something I was fully aware of when I started this topic. I never expected you to fix the issues. Rather, I wanted your view on this since this is about a product I and others bought from you. Even when it was developed by someone else. If I was in your shoes, a situation like this would make me question if I wanted to continue the partnership with developers "using" my well-known brand and platform if they at the same time fail to deliver products and support living up to the standards my customers have come to expect from my brand.
  11. Now I see what you mean Jon. I guess the fault is mine where I've until now have failed to see Orbx Central as a market place. To me, Orbx Central has rather been a very convenient tool to install and configure your products. And lately also partner's products. Also, comparing Orbx Central to SimMarket for example, I've seen Gaya more like a partner of yours where other developers without mentioning any names with their products sold by SimMarket for example, in that case SimMarket to me is rather a publisher and pure market place/website. Not a tool/market place like in this case with Orbx Central and Gaya. Oh well, let's see how things turn out in the end.
  12. Hello Jon, What you suggest has already been done. Both by myself and others. Which is also explained in the first post above as well as in the linked threads in more detail if you haven't read through them yet. Unfortunately, the outcome hasn't been particularly impressive. Which is why you received this question in here. After all, we're discussing a partner of yours you decided to work with. As well as sell this partner's products via your own platform (Orbx Central). Based on that, you also have a responsibility towards your customers, don't you think? Not a technical responsibility, but from a business perspective. I think most people buying products via Orbx Central will feel they bought their products from Orbx. I certainly do anyway. If it's found Orbx has started working with partners developing products with very obvious bugs where the developer says the customers shouldn't expect the bugs to be addressed, that is quite bad publicity. Not only for the partner/developer, but also for Orbx. What the final outcome will be here is something that will certainly affect my future purchases. And I don't think I'm the only one.
  13. So @Raz Goeta, do you have some info/update for us regarding the outstanding issues with the X-Plane version of the LOWW scenery?
  14. Thanks Jon, I fully understand and let's see what Raz can find out for us.
  15. I and others bought Vienna for X-Plane via Orbx Central and have found several issues/bugs with the product. When we've tried to get the developer's attention to address these issues, both via forum posts and filed support tickets, we have either not received a response at all or the developer said there are no planned updates at this time. Here's two examples -> https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/197148-gaya-loww-runway-approach-lights-totally-misplaced/ https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/200658-x-plane-11-loww/?tab=comments#comment-1715122 We don't think this is cool for a payware scenery, what do you think?
  16. Well Greg...in your last post, you told me there's nothing further on this. Good thing you didn't stop there but also told me about the library.txt file that comes with your Cardiff airport scenery. I just did some testing and after getting rid of that file...which proved to contain 7178 references to OpenSceneryX...even when you've been saying since start there are no references to OpenSceneryX in your product...all other airports are now loading just fine without a single error message. And without having to manually edit their library.txt files to make them work with your Cardiff airport installed. Very happy that we can finally mark this one as solved. And I guess it might be a good thing to get rid of this library.txt file in your next Cardiff scenery update for all those people with the same issue who haven't found this thread or bothered to ask for help.
  17. When you say you haven't been able to reproduce the issue I describe here, have you tested your product with one of the products I've mentioned such as JustSim's LFSB or Paderborn by Aerosoft? Also, have you contacted the developer of Paderborn yet by following the link in an earlier post? I'm sure he would be able to help you understand what might be causing this issue with a number of airports. Where the airport always present in the mix is your Cardiff. Meanwhile, I'll try getting rid of library.txt as you suggest to see if that will address the issue.
  18. That is correct. This causes an error message popping up on the screen whenever you're getting close to an affected airport. Or if you start a new flight at that airport. Then you get the error message first thing when X-Plane finished loading the situation. That however doesn't mean it's OK. Of course it would have been even worse if this issue caused also other issues. But, I don't pay for airport scenery to end up with any kind of error messages. That is something associated with freeware airports where you constantly seem to be missing some required library etc. That's why I only use payware airports. Even when Greg confirmed there are no references to OpenSceneryX in Cardiff, clearly something is wrong somewhere when you get this error message as described earlier. And Orbx Cardiff plays the leading role since I've seen this with multiple other airports from different developers. And as soon as Cardiff is excluded from the mix, the issue goes away. For all those other airports. So please ask Greg, not to comment on this again saying nothing is wrong with Cardiff which leads nowhere. Instead, ask him to drop a PM to the developer of Aerosoft Paderborn using the direct link provided by me in my last post and ask him what could cause this. I want the culprit to be found and fixed. Once it has been found, I want the developer responsible to either address the issue or give me my money back. Simple as that and perfectly normal.
  19. Once again, I have this very same issue. This time with JustSim's LMML scenery. Disabling Cardiff gets rid of the error messages. I can also get rid of the issue by using the workaround method mentioned earlier. Feels a bit odd though having to modify payware products as a paying customer to make the products work together. Surely that must be for the developers of the products to address? So, could you please get in touch with one of the developers as suggested here and work out with them what is really happening here and why. I think getting in touch with the developer of Aerosoft Paderborn would be the best bet. For your convenience, here's a direct link to his personal profile over in the Aerosoft forums where you can drop him a PM. This is from log.txt if having Orbx Cardiff enabled at the same time as JustSim LMML. And without using the workaround suggested by the Paderborn developer replacing any EXPORT_LIBRARY opensceneryx/... in library.txt for the affected airport such as Paderborn or in this case JustSim LMML with EXPORT opensceneryx/...

  20. Thanks Greg for your input and info shared. Being just a customer in the middle of a couple of developers, I'm slightly confused to be honest. You're telling me nothing is wrong with Cardiff while the other devs seem to be saying nothing is wrong with their products. And yet without using the workaround mentioned above, the products don't work nicely together causing error messages popping up in X-Plane that need to be confirmed as well as error messages in the X-Plane log file. Oh well, at least I'm happy I have the workaround which made things work without any of these issues and I hope it will stay this way so I can carry on enjoying my products rather than troubleshooting them.
  21. Again, I'm just a customer and not a developer. What I did see though when having this issue was how log.txt in X-Plane contained lots of lines with Cardiff and OpenSceneryX on the same line (see above). After using the workaround presented by the Aerosoft Paderborn developer, the problem went away and log.txt no longer shows any error messages. Not sure what exactly that means but that's what happened.
  22. Nope, I'm not. What I said was how the developer of Aerosoft Paderborn learned me about the work-around method described in a post above. Which to my big joy worked also for the very similar issue with LFSB. The way I see it, in one way or the other it seems like the Orbx Cardiff scenery causes these kind of issues when other products using OpenSceneryX are added to the mix. Still, I'm not fully sure about OpenSceneryX and how it's used by various products. I always thought that was a library used by freeware airports, not payware airports. When talking to the JustSim developer though, he told me it's often used also in payware products and how the developers of OpenSceneryX are allowed to do so. Again, you should really talk to these two guys instead rather than having me trying to guess the answers. I'm sure you would be able to figure this all out if you talked to each other.
  23. Hey Nick, I don't have that depth of knowledge about this issue and what's causing it. I'm nothing but a simple end user trying to enjoy the products I bought without issues And I'm very happy and grateful for the work-around provided by the developer of Aerosoft Paderborn which proved to solve not only the issue with Paderborn in combination with your Cardiff scenery but also the same kind of issue with JustSim's LFSB scenery. To get an answer to your question, I suggest you ask your developer colleagues. Following the link in post #6 above, you can get in touch with the developer of Aerosoft Paderborn with the nickname FlyAgi. To get in touch with the JustSim developer of LFSB, his email address is rujustsim@gmail.com
