Hot fix 3 (16 Aug) installed.....no issues

Recommended Posts

I have installed all three hot-fix's with no issues at all! Do not forget that there is more going on with your sim than just the NGX. Remember, computer systems need to be considered. So far one complete flight with hot fix 3 and everything is fine. In fact, I swear my ground scenery looks much better, and have increased frame rate, on ground, at 1500ft and high altitude. PMDG built an incredible plane, very complex, and they have changed the way we all enjoy FSX! There will be pop up issues, and they are addressed immediately. Trust them, they are in the cockpit with us. If it doesn't work, they will fix it. Do you have any doubt about that? Happy flying!!!

Is there a huge step from hotfix 2 to hotfix 3? After hotfix 1 I got some problems, after hotfix 2 beside the terrain ND issue everything works fine. So I´m a little bit afraid to install hotfix 3 ;)

You forget the cases where it worked well in some hotfix but it stop working well with another hotfix. In this situations, where do you think is the variable?

Downloads usually say completed or successful at end of install. I always get that phantom pop up. If you look it also says, downloaded OK? I just cancel, because I saw the completed successful at end of download. Always do what is best for what you see going on, but this has always worked for me.

Installed the 08/16/2011 hotfix as well.I had no problems with the initially shipped version, and there doesn't seem to be a problem after installing the hotfix except that the NGX lost a couple of frames and it feels not as smooth as it used to. Maybe fixing issues demanded to cut certain optimizations. Who knows. Too bad though.

Nothing at all changed that should have reduced FPS - these hotfixes are very minor changes to the code just fixing issues where there's crashes, correcting things like the mins knob showing super high values etc. To affect FPS like is being alleged here would mean we made major changes to the way the displays draw or something like that - we have not.

The way displays draw. ........Displays draw. Hmm. (thinks for a while) Whoa!!!!! Are you .... Could you..... Are you saying....... Terrain display... update sweep.......... yes!!!!!!!!! Is that a hint that PMDG is considering to put in the ND terrain display update sweep option?

The terrain issue is actually fixed in 3.
niceee! just installed HF3 and do my usual check ride from coffs harbour to cairns. both ORBX. Right now FL340 and approaching the T/D. Curious to see whether all is fine. Btw, I did not install the HF3 as such, instead I downloaded the whole installer from the shop and updated my NGX. simple and no need to take care of aircraft cfg or ini files.
Nothing at all changed that should have reduced FPS - these hotfixes are very minor changes to the code just fixing issues where there's crashes, correcting things like the mins knob showing super high values etc. To affect FPS like is being alleged here would mean we made major changes to the way the displays draw or something like that - we have not.
only thing I noticed so far that - as I am flying in windowed mode with hidden task bar - when I access the task bar to access other programs like chrome to write this here and when then the task bar hides again, FSX shortly stops. Well, rather a slight stutter. But a stutter. Was not there before with the original release version (I skipped all hotfixes 1 and 2 so far).
