Hi @rockliffe,

 

Can you provide a little more information on the issue you're encountering?

  • For which products have you manually downloaded the scenery?
  • What steps are you performing to install this scenery?
  • What errors are you encountering?

Hi Josh, here ya go:-

 

Operating system:  Windows 10

Simulator:  P3DV4.5

Issue: I have manually downloaded and saved most of my Orbx sceneries which are saved on a drive of their own. I have the need to install some of them which I have not had installed for some time. eg, England, the Zip files are there when I access the folder in Windows, and show a long list of Compressed files, when I go to install via Orbx central and try to install from manually downloaded files, when I click to the folder, the folder shows empty. It then simply tries to redownload the entire scenery from Orbx Direct!! This is a real PITA as I have a slow internet connection and the thought of having to download loads of sceneries yet again, fills me with  dread. Your help with be gratefully received Josh. Cheers.

Hi Howard

 

If your backups were created using the previous app called FTX Central 3 then they are not compatible with the new app called Orbx Central.

Wow, that seems crazy, surely. So are you saying I really need to redownload all my sceneries Doug?

Sorry Howard, but yes, I would also recommend using the backup option in Orbx Central, I found it works amazing.

Hi Doug, but this is the option I chose with all my sceneries previously.

Hello Howard, what is inside it?

In the folder Nick? When viewed in Windows, the usual array of Zip files are there, when I try  to install from these files as a manually downloaded backup, from FTX Cental, there are no files to be seen and it then starts to download directly from the internet.
