Latest OrBX Lib and blurries

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I saw on FTX forum that people have problems with blurry texture after latest ORBX LIB update.

This is biggest FSX community so I'm curious how does it look in your case.

Thanks

I updated the ORBX Lib three days ago and so far have not experienced any issues whatsoever

I updated ORBX Lib also and found blurries  builds up after 2-3 mins flight.

Also the terrain data loading time increases remarkable.

no issues here   went  to way  of  downloading  the  libs  from the ftx   web  page  and  installed  with no issues, instead   of  lettting  ftx  central  to update,  terrain loading  is still the  same  from previous version  using  fsx   here

Hi

I tried and blurries appeared.

Restore PC to previous state. No blurries.

Tried also without FTX Central , with zip file. But blurries returned.

I restore PC again and this time I will wait for solution from ORBX, because as I see this is not isolated case.

 

Thanks for looking

:sad:

P3D V3.3.5 and FTX Central v2.1.5988

 

I have the blurries too, but not on every flight. Recently when flying low and slow the ground looked melted. Had a brief white flash like the simulator dropped some frames... then things improved dramatically. No more blurry textures and the autogen color looked right.

 

I fell victim to the Orbx FTX Central update, than update to an older version, then update again fiasco so don't know if that screwed something up..

I have a real mess after the unified migration.  I am curious how did you restore, do you mean using windows restore point?  Does this actually affect the install files of the new Central and libraries?

 

Please advise.

you would need to restore fsx as well since that is where central resides

I have all of the same issues as well. What really makes me mad is all I had before was FTX global and vector as well as a few other freeware packages and everything looked beautiful. During the May sale, I bought the Northern California, Southern California, and Pacific Northwest regions. The updates to FTX Central happened immediately after I installed them. Now I get the blurries, pop-up autogen, and what looks to be mesh changing as I fly over it even outside of the new regions that I bought. I hope they figure out this problem soon so that I can actually see what the new stuff I bought looks like. The very first time I flew in Southern California, the ground was extremely blurry. Needless to say, I was highly disappointed. I went to get help on the forum, and it was down. Then, when the forum comes back up, we find that they all left town. Really? Leaving town and updating your support forum immediately after releasing a major update? What a bummer. I'm simply shocked that a software company would do that. I manage a $7M a year help desk, and we are all hands on deck for every SW release, even minor updates. I'd lose my job if I did what Orbx did.

 

I'm just frustrated. I haven't even seen a real "We're on it", "We have a clue", "An update is on its way", "We know what is going on", etc. note from them.

Okay... I played around with my setup a little, and I think I may have straightened things out. The "Addon Scenery" entry was above my Orbx regions and Orbxlibs entries. I moved it down below my orbx regions, but above the Orbx LC entries. 

 

Things look much better now. Sorry I was a little hard on ya, Orbx dudes...  :aggressive:

I think the Add On scenery should be below the LC

I don't know for sure where it is really supposed to go, but having it above the regions seemed to cause the problem.

 

SoCal is looking great right now. If it is not 100% fixed, I can't tell what is still broken. 

 

I don't know if you can see this or not. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=707629341

 

I'll go to the Orbx forum and post screen shots. It might not be everyone's problem, but it might fix it for one or two... 

 

My Addon Scenery folder had a 17Mb BGL file that had a single airport in it KJDD in Texas that I made following a Youtube tutorial. I deleted it. I'm not sure if that was a contributing factor or not. It also had the light fields from Steve's DX10 fixer for every Orbx freeware airport in it. There was nothing else.

LC should be below addon scenery and mesh below that

 

Payware airports such as FT - FB - FSDT should be at the very top above all orbx stuff that includes payware night lighting also 

 

Stay away from 3rd party LC its causing blurries here  -  Orbx is fine 

 

Also do not move around Orbx stuff at least in P3D its where it needs to be dont touch it - the non Orbx stuff you can touch as mentioned above

 

Delete all the SceneryIndexes files - they will rebuild like your shaders

I was wrong. Problems not fixed. When I use anything faster than a C172, it gets ugly blurry again...

If you decide to go back to Central v2.0...and if you update to the latest Lib's....AND, you uncheck the Central Update box...you won't experience any texture blur because of using and installing the latest Orbx Lib...it only happens under their migration process.  Central V2.0 and the latest Lib has no anomalies.

I've also had the problem as well. I'm not going to bother with a restore; I'll just wait it out for an update - I trust they're working on a fix, as it's been pretty widely reported.

Central 2, current on all Orbx scenery / libs / vector.  Still looking good or better.  FSX

Hi,

 

You can add me to the list of those experiencing blurries and slow tile updating since the ORBX FTX unification process. This is currently ruining my flights around Scotland. Seems for some, as yet, unexplained reason not everyone has been affected. Everything was going luverly until this happened :mad:

Mike

   Blurriness over here as well, thanks to the orbx unified LC thing-a-ma-jig. After reinstalling my orbx scenery, and blocking ftx central with my firewall, I have finally gotten back to clear textures. No more of ftx central phone home bull-crud. :mad:

I think most have. Just take a look at the support forums where new cases are growing daily

Hi Jazz,

 

While I can understand why you have done this it might have been better to hold off for a while as it's likely ORBX will release an update before long. I gather there may be another significant update to FTX Central scheduled for July, perhaps sooner. You may encounter difficulties should you have a change of heart.

Hi Mike,

I know that eventually I will have to upgrade to ftx central 2.1, and the unified LClookup file. Especially since I do want to purchase the upcoming Open LC North America. I can wait till Orbx have fixed their issues and everything is working as it is intended. In the meantime, I will enjoy my limited P3Dv3 sim time without blurry textures and the associated performance drop.

Hi Jazz,

 

I'd be lying if I said I didn't envy you :sad:

Actually, all seems fine if you keep away from ORBX enhanced areas/regions.

Mike
