  1. thks for these info Nick, made me realise that i had both lighting enabled in Pacific Northwest. Anyway my question is : is this apply also to europe ? i'v both OpenLC Europe and 2 regions there but ther's no option about the old & new lightning in their control panel. Is the new lightning already the standard one in europe products ?
  2. Products you'v bought are in your account definitively , using FTX central you can remove and reinstall them whenever you want. if you choose to delete one anyway, you'll have to redownload it, that's all.
  3. Hi, any new on this issue ? cuz i'm having the exact same problem but with FSX-SE: On a stock fresh install of FSX-SE (in FSX mode), no addons, stock 172, fps capped to 24 ingame, absolutely no tweaks...then i add - FTX Global - FTX HD Trees - FTX Vector I can install all of theses without any issues : no perf issue, no blurries, everything is crisp and smooth as butter but as soon as i add OpenLC (USA or EU) i get blurries, more precisely i can start from any airport, everything ok and fly in any direction after 5 mn of flight ground textures are more and more blurry... pausing the sim does nothing so it's not a perf issue. It feels like the sim doesn't know when he have a to load a texture. The only way to get a detailled texture again, is to refresh the scenery..... Scenery complexity doesn't seem to have any influence on the issue...it's always about 5 minutes no matter the scenery. If i remove OpenLC from FTX Central (or manually disabling it) everything is back to normal. I can even fly over KSEA at 24 fps locked (no traffic addon) without any issues. I'v spent 2 days of the issue, tried everything even made a fresh windows 10 install.... everything fine until i add OpenLC. On a final note, it's a problem wich seems to have appeared recently. i had a hiatus of 4 of 5 month in 2017 and when i came back flying in december, the problem was there. I switched to P3D for now, but i really want to fly again my good ol collection of AC in FSX-SE.... If you need more info, test, screenshots or logs...ask me. FTX Global BASE Pack 5853cd8673f93 FTX Global openLC North America 5853d6360e66a FTX Global VECTOR 5853cd8673f93 etc...
  4. well with the correct add-ons, P3D/FSX can look so good...as we can see on your screenshots, good flight. As for P3D 4, among all the news around it, the number one i'm eagerly waiting for is the dynamic lightning....finally, we'll get rid of textured lights on our planes and we ll have also our aviator torch for a real corld & dark experience ! like someone-else-i-know-of. peace
  5. usually, it happened when, in the old FTX central, a region wasn't properly activated. Today, with FTX 3 i would maybe a scenery order issue, or a bad lclookup migration. - check the scenery order in the settings of FTX - force a migration of lclookup - remove and reinstall England (hope you have kept a backup). and always end by reinstalling the latest Orbx Libraries. hope you'll solve this.
  6. Hi, you'r probably too close of a fuel station. Try to elsewhere and try again. It's a known FSX bug
  7. ok, i still have a few days to buy more Regions, somehow this news make me want to buy more of them
  8. i'v bought it and spent almost 4 hours on it, trying everything i can. At first, i hated it : It's FSX at it's core but the FSX we all discovered in 2006 when no computers were capable of running it correctly, and without any addons to give him some eye candy. Performance were execrable, until i crashed and switched to windowed mode...and voila all my fps got back again. so already a first fatal performance flaw that will with any doubt make most ppl run away from the game. Then, i started to like it...no, it's not as pretty as my FSX pimped with Orbx, A2A and ASN, but it show promise, obviously there's a lot of work to do : missing functionnality, better control of the game options, bugs everywhere and probably the feeling that we'r playing something new, work in progress. And you know what ? it's exactly what EA means. So basically what we have here is a revamped FSX core, with some little nice graphical touches but a lot of work to be done inside it....i feel it could become another step in the FS family, but a step who can show a lot of promise if DTG do his job seriously and with the help of 3rd parties. I'll play it, report bugs, ask for added functionalities as much as i can...i'm really decided to give it his chance. And now, i'll open the fsw.cfg and start tweaking it...hoping it won't never be necessary with the final product.
  9. at first i was..sceptic, at best, now i'm curious and will definitely get it, why ? because, at his worst, it's an upgraded FSX and since i'm still using it as my main sim, it'll be always a better option...hey, even FSX-SE is better than the boxed version and they just made only very small fixes. At best, well i don't expect too much. obviously, it's still the good ol MS ESP core...nothing radically different like, well, x-plane. it's not a revolution, but an evolution..
  10. Thanks...bought 2 regions this morning..and maybe going for a third later.
  11. Thanks you for all these news, that's really what i wanted to hear. i'll definitely stay a proud customer.
  12. hi, before wiping everything from your HDD (hope it's not too late), maybe you can try this : - open your fsx.cfg - in the section [GRAPHICS] SHADER_CACHE_VERSION=107 ----> no matter what the number is, change it to something else this will force FSX to rebuild the shader cache at the next startup - save your fsx.cfg and restart FSX. Geometry is achieved via shaders, sometimes it can be messed up and have all the airplanes geometry displaying strange things..very strange things. It already happened to me when playing with shaders 2.0 and 3.0... not sure if it's actually what's causing your problem, but well you'v nothing to loose trying.
