Be forewarned, like the previous hotfix, this one will mess up some of your addons. FSDT airports and ASN beta are incompatible with this latest hotfix. We'll have to wait for updates to the various programs.

From where do we get this? Couldn't see it on the LM site?

Also gonna wait - just have this sim where I want it now - I don't get the breaking of every add-on every time. Poor planning if you ask me.

The only addons that break are those that use undocumented methods. LM is building a Commercial Simulator product, why should it care about a few developers who do not stick to it's SDK ?

I've been running the ASN beta in 2.5 with this hotfix applied without any issues.

I've got a question. I'm hoping I'm not the only stupid person out there. I download and installed 2.5 when it first landed. Are these Hotfixes little Sub updates to 2.5 itself? So if I download 2.5 again, will all these little Sub updates be already installed into 2.5 ?

 

Thank you

I think you did not apply the hotfix correctly then. Or, you are referring to the previous hotfix.

Yes.

So if I download 2.5 again, will all these little Sub updates be already installed into 2.5 ?

Eventually; you will notice if you check the version numbers on the P3D website that the current available download has already been updated with the previous hotfix, but not yet with this latest one.

Ah, you're right, Penz, my bad; I did't realize that there had been another hotfix released. Confirmed that ASN doesn't like this version - reverting back!

 

Cheers,

FSDreamteam is working.  You need to rerun the installer.

I don't get the breaking of every add-on every time. Poor planning if you ask me.

 

Some 3rd party (not all by any means) perform processing outside of what is supported in the SDK/PDK, as such some 3rd party will need to accept that responsibility, this is not something LM can "plan for".

 

LM may add to the SDK/PDK in the future if those 3rd party products that work outside of the SDK/PDK communicate their needs and those needs don't cause a major re-work of P3D.  

 

What some 3rd party do is done to obtain a competitive edge or to overcome a limitation of the SDK/PDK ... I'm not going to expand on the details of what they do and it's fragile nature.  But for now, those 3rd party that have this dependency are well aware of what they do and as such will need to evaluate their choices because LM isn't going to stop updating P3D and I look forward to v3.x in the near future.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Just a heads up. EZDOK is broken with this hotfix  :(

 

I'm using the 1.18.5 BETA (http://www.simforums.com/forums/ezca-1185-beta-available-for-download_topic51089_page1.html)

It's not completely broken as TrackIR works (in EZDOK) and all the saved views work, BUT there are no transitions anymore between the views and you can't 'look around' holding down the middle mouse button.

 

I even tried running the config.exe after 'installing' the hotfix and it's still a no go. So, back to the previous hotfix for now.

Just thought I'd let you know.
