To uh-oh's......30

Recommended Posts

1.  Loading times...I not only can start XPX.30...go out and cut my front and back lawn...but I even have time not only to pour myself a beer...but to actually brew the batch....   Way too long, in loading time(s).

 

2.  I have incessant rain, no matter if there isn't a cloud in the sky....practically constant rain.  This has got to be an introduced bug.  This is in both the grab from the net...or internally generated weather.

 

That's the only two 'uh-oh's' so far....

Is this just with default scenery? I've found it to be about almost exactly the same as 10.25. I'm guessing this will change though when the long range visibility appears

No...this with all the good HD and World scenery packs...but they are the same ones that were in .25 and about 20 percent of the loading time I now have with .30

I have two systems, a Macbook Pro with an SSD drive, and it loads very quickly on that. But on my Windows computer, which has a slow HD, I can literally walk away, make a coffee, come back and it will still be loading. Germany, with HD Mesh, Photo Scenery, World2XPlane can take me up to 10 minutes to load sometimes.

 

The Windows computer also has P3D v2, and it can take it a good 5 minutes or so before it's loaded up and I'm sat in the cockpit. I've just learnt to be patient until I can afford a 1TB SSD drive (someday never)

Yeah, I have G2XPL scenery at zoom level 18 and World2XPlane, my XP takes about 15 minutes to load. It's a pain but worth it.

Strange with the rain thing though, are you using SkyMaxxPro, I had just 10 meters visibility trying to use that though others seem to have no trouble, might be worth taking it out if it's in there as a test?

Yeppers...that's about it...when your chin starts touching your chest...well...they have to tighten up the load time in the beta run.... and oh..this load time is on a 10,000 RPM Velociraptor.....

It takes about 2 minutes to load on my system. I have dedicated velociraptor HD.

 

Have you defraged your hard drive lately ? It helps if you have dedicated HD for XPX.

My loading times in 10.30 aren't that bad but when I try to get out of XP I have to CTRL/Alt/ Del to the process manager. It won't close on its' own. I also have the never ending rain showers.

It took so long to load for me I killed the process. When I reloaded it asked if I wanted to keep my existing graphics settings. I said yes and it loaded in about 30 seconds.

Once it is loaded once and primed the mem it will of course load faster. I did the same thing today. It was taking forever so I killed the process and reloaded.

 

Just down right weird.

I too have dedicated a velociraptor for XP and since then my loading times are not that bad, 3 to 3.5 min tops.

Yes..with each run before Window loads...

I use a SSD and it takes about 2-3 minutes at most.

 

i also have the rain shower problem.

Mine is probably the same...but it just seems so long...I

will have to actually time it...

Of course you have to take in all he custom files of which I am well stocked...but having said that, the same file load was present in .25 If this is all I find to post about, then I guess all is generally good. Rain with no clouds present is a bug needing to get slapped.

The rain thing is not good by any yardstick. One of the big improvements with 10.30 is supposed to be hooks into the engine to allow 3rd parties better access. Hopefully that means a 3rd party weather engine is more realistic.

Edit: and as if to prove a point the next thread in this forum I open is...!

I've played around with 10.30 today and did not encounter the rain bug like yesterday. I did find out that my Jar Design A320 is fubared with this current beta.

Prior to installing my new SSD my load times were about 4 min (7200 rpm 1TB drive)

 

Now even with 10.30 they are about 1 min to 1.25 min

That's way faster than mine...

Flight factor 757 doesn't seem to like 10.30b1.......

 

I hadn't flown the FF757 before the update so I don't know what isn't working right after 10.30. What things have you noticed that aren't right?

I can't even get as far as to fly it, as my windscreen is filled with kind of blurry textures!

Ian,

       It's funny because the first time I tried the FF757 in 10.30 that didn't happen. The next time I got rain in clear skies along with an obstructed windscreen. I ran the wipers and it cleaned it off like it was dirt. I just tried the FF757 again and there was nothing on the windscreen. Very weird. Otherwise the aircraft seemed to fly fine but again I don't have enough experience with it to give an informed opinion.

Here is my temporary 'fix'...which dried things out...

Continuous Rain Update'

 

For those also afflicted with this...a temp cure:

 

Turn down to full left, or barely on, the following under Environment

 

Intensity (full left, or barely on)

 

System Size (full left, or barely on)

 

This stopped the continuous rain..but I had my original .25 settings in play..and this never happened with stated .25.   So...if you want to get out of the rain...try the above setting adjustments...and dry out....  :blush:
