Been happening quite often lately...

Indeed. And I think a bit too often for a commercial enterprise and market leader.

 

Kind regards, Michael

Personally I haven't seen it before but I don't visit their sites that often.

 

Have they commented on what's happening with their sites?

I recall one comment by Batman Jay Kae managing the servers about a modified maintenance plan, but I doubt this being the only explanation. I visit their sites quite often and noticed indeed a growing number of shorter or not so short outages.

 

Kind regards, Michael

Hmm...I hope it's not a bad sign because I do enjoy their software!

Like Michael, I am a frequent visitor to their site, as I have a ton of ORBX products. Just tested it and still down and it's happening to all companies that are related to ORBX: OZx forum ( great repaints for all of our planes), OZx Imaging host. Funny thing is, their commercial site flightsimstore, which was affected in the past as well, is working right now

Considering how well known they are within the community I find it rather strange they haven't tried communicate with the community using some other channels what's up. Or maybe they have only I didn't see it.

 

Surely they must understand that people are wondering.

Actually I'm in the middle of a total reinstall as well.

 

Are you saying you can't install/activate their software now that their services seem to be down or only that you're not able to download software from their website?

ORBX has a facebook page since a few weeks and it's up but no info there either.

 

BTW, the FSS is not related to ORBX, they're selling several other products (like REX), too (while ORBX obviously being their best-seller).

 

Kind regards, Michael

Really strange there's no comments on their FB page...almost a bit arrogant I would say considering the number of users (customers) wondering what's going on.

Yep, been trying to get a couple updates all day, no luck.  Very disappointed.

 

I agree, they should care enough to keep their customers informed...

Haven't been able to get on all day.

 

Getting an "Error 523":

'Check your DNS Settings. A 523 error means that CloudFlare could not reach your host web server.'

 

Had it a couple of times in last 2 months for a short period of time.

This has been the longest.
