That'd be the first report yet of frame rate loss or crash. This was tested out pretty good and is low-overhead by nature. If you are experiencing frame rate loss it is due to cloud display in fs. This would happen with any weather setting independant of the add-on. There are some performance enhancement options in FSUIPC (and the FS cloud density setting) that can help.I would also like to fix the crash problem you are having if you can share more info - perhaps I can duplicate what is happening on your system.-Damian

Hi everyone,There was a problem with some missing files on certain machines. It's been fixed and the file at members.cox.net/dzc66 is now updated... If you had problems, please download the file again and re-install.-Damian

Hi,are you referring to the problems with install? The beta testers apparently all had the files installed already and nobody noticed that there were unincluded ones. This has been fixed though already. Any other errors once you had it installed?Thanks!-Damian

Running setup.exe, I get the following message:"Setup cannot continue because some system files are out of date on your system. Click OK if you would like setup to update these files for you now. You will need to restart Windows before you can run setup again. Click cancel to exit setup without updating system files."I clicked OK and restarted Windows, but when I ran setup again I got the same message. And the same happens of course if I click cancel and then try to run setup.Any ideas?Martin767 fetishistIt's a lot like life and that's what's appealing
