REX Essential released

Recommended Posts

I'm very close to ditching the REX essentials weather engine.

 

Great for textures, but there's no way I can run it at the same time as the sim, it locks up my PC every time. No other issues at all with my system I can run anything else with FSX no problems at all, but REX is no dice.

 

Looks like I may have to consider AS2012, unless the developer can find a fix, so far they don't seem to have any idea why it locks up my system. I'm not the only one, someone else is having the same issue.

Why would you NOT consider AS2012 ??? All this conjecture regarding textures comparisons between AS2012 and REX is rot, just take a look at my previous email and note the clouds. They are not even the higher high definition ones.

For the complete package AS2012!

Because AS2012 means more financial outlay and i'm not well off.

 

Not to mention that prior to essentials I was perfectly happy with REX.

 

And like most things, your opinion is subjective.

Hi martin hopefully they will sort your problem out soon, hopefully when they release the o/d out with the updates will hopefully fix your problem, with some luck so stay tuned. Martin check the rexe thread just posted another thing you can try before you give up

AS2012 is currently on sale at €41.64 at Simmarket until the 30/6/2012. And it is only €23.79 as an upgrade if you have had a previous version of ASE. Note that REX is not even listed as a weather engine on Simmarket (for good reason in my opinion).

Thats good couldnt see why would you pay again for the same product again when you already got it even though its an update

Were you happy to pay again for PMDG 737? I was. If a software vendor doesn't charge for a rewrite (not a fix or update, they should be free), then why would they bother to do the rewrite in the first place. There would be no commercial gain. Say I made hammers for a living and you bought one from me. If the head broke, you would expect me to put it right and if I didn't you would be reluctent to deal with me again. But if I come up with a new and improved hammer, would you expect me to give it for you free?

Worst analogy ever; I lost 7 IQ points just from glancing at it. Now I'm going to concentrate on the sound of one hand clapping, and listening for trees falling in a forest.

Sorry for being a smart-&@($*; I may have been wearing the wobbly boot at the time. But I am overprotective of REX. I have zero, NONE, of the problems some have reported, and I find their commitment to their customers second to none. Or at least tied with PMDG.

Yea same here no troubles at all, people that are having problems is due to the fact that they didnt follow the correct removal/installation procedures.. Maybe they should have posted their problem in the correct forum if they did than they would have recieved the correct help they needed. Since rexe has only been out for a few weeks now, they expect it to be bug free which amuses me since when do addons come out bug free the first time.

I don't really have any trouble with rex essentials initially working, although it tends to 'hang' quite a bit when switching between the tabs. The main gripe I have at the moment is the real world weather being way off. In Auckland today, weve had rain, wind, rain, wind and huge black storm clouds across the city and airport. So I had a spare moment and tested rex essentials and loaded a saved approach in the ngx into NZAA. What I found was relatively clear skies, no rain and relatively calm winds. I guess the only thing it got right was the wind direction as the runway in use was the one being used in real world at the present time. So not sure what is going on tbh.

if you would have read in the rex forum about your problem is that its going to be fixed with the release of the rexe o/d update with all the known fixes of problems that users have been having including yours so hopefully its not to far off so just hang in there and it be fixed in the next update

I'm flying between EGLL and Madeira at the moment, so far my issues seem to be fixed as pete will know.

 

Crossing my fingers.

 

I would second the excellent support provided by REX. I would also commend the product, precisely why a wrote a complimentary REX review when it was first relesed.

i once purchased REX 2 in a DVD box from a retailer (aviation megastore)

 

Does this mean this free essentials update doesn't apply to me and i have to wait for another update to be released later?

 

Thanks
