Orbx Central is getting on my nerves

Stuck downloads. Every time.

Already an old problem submitted with logs.

Wish you would solve that soon.

 

 

 

Operating system:  Win10 x64 Pro

Simulator:  Fsx SE, P3Dv3.4, 4.5, FS2 and XP11

The quick fix for the stuck downloads is to restart Orbx Central. It works all the time.

I have (and still am) in the process of rebuilding a new computer and the stuck downloads at 98% have been a pain.

So I have throughly tested this fix particularly when I have most of Orbx products across the world.

FTX Central is much quicker but can create out of sync products between "Central".

I am still questioning the use of one of the Central full time. Plus or Minuses on either side.

Cheers,

Pierre

Hi @ve2dgz

 

Thanks for the follow up. The difficulty in reproducing this issue has resulted in us guessing the potential cause.

 

Are you able to recreate this issue every time you download a product without fail? Are there a specific set of actions taken that then result in a stuck download?

Yes, I am able to recreate this issue every time I download a product.

 

Specific set of actions are:

1. startup Central v4027;

2. select one of my product;

3. startup Install download;

4. and wait until it stops (mostly towards the end 70 to 90%) : most of the time I will not do any other activity on the PC or on the web but since that did not seem to do anything interfering with the download;

5. then will restart Central to resume downloading.

 

note: presently reloading my products to P3dv4.13, doing it slowly to test the scenery and I have plenty more to do.

 

Cheers,

Pierre

Status update:

with 4.0.36 there are no more stuck download problems.

Did a number of re-installs today without problems.

(notices there is some kind of watchdog now checking comm. status and restarting download)

Congrats to the team,

Cheers,

Pierre
