HiFlyer

Reinstall?

Recommended Posts

Hi, sorry for my ignorance, but I haven't messed with Orbx in quite some time.

 

I'm thinking of re-installing as I have many many (many) Orbx scenery's, but I'm really not interested in a two-day process followed by a painstaking hunt for all the right updates (and maybe updates of updates!)  :lol:

 

I remember reading long ago of Orbx considering an auto-installer that could be set to install scenery and then search for and install the proper updates, but never heard anything after that. Was that ever done/completed?

LOL. I'd rather wait!  :lol:

 

It was one of the central contributing factors that I stopped purchasing Orbx stuff, was that keeping track of everything was becoming very much the opposite of fun.

If you want to know what you have got installed as orbox products just simply open up the ftx  central control panel  click on the tools tab on top  than click ftx products installed  and it will tell you all the airports  scenery and patches you have installed

Thanks, I knew that part. Its just that when it comes/came time for the inevitable reinstall, putting the regions (in the right order) then the airports (do I have the latest version?) then the updates (is the order correct?) Is just draining.

 

At this point, I'd rather just fly default than go through all that again. Add in all the other addons I have and their updates and various versions (like REX, for instance), and then something like Ultimate traffic and some semi up-to-date schedules, and it all starts to feel like sewer-cleaning style drudgery!  :lol:

Yea true  but don't know why your going to do a re install   for   but if your like some of  us  that made a complete back up of  the drive  than its a matter of  just re installing  from the  back up to your pc  again

Got frustrated and deleted all the extra stuff a while ago. Actually Flight sims have their own drive. Which is getting full!  :lol:
