HUGE improvement in Eaglesoft's SR20 Update

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,I was one of the many who purchased the Cirrus SR20 when Eaglesoft released it, but found it too hard on frame rates to fly often. I'm quite pleased to say that the new service release that they've made available today has really improved the experience, at least on my rig. The performance, with all gauges on in VC mode, is now quite acceptable, and I, for one, am gonna go nuts buzzing around the NW in this cute little beast!Just a heads up. If you haven't gotten the SR20 yet, now is the time! If you have it already, patch that sucker and be happy!(And no, I do not work for Eaglesoft nor do I represent them; just a happy virtual flyer)

Since I returned my purchase for a full refund, can I get some more feed back from people who were having performance issues with moderate to high end systems? If the service release has resolved these issues then I will promptly repurchase this addon in a heartbeat. I really loved the plane but could not get a enjoyable experience with it flying in the boonies and landing at small fields.I'm looking forward to repurchasing this little beauty. :-)

Tony, you're wasting heartbeats when you could be flying this beauty!No issues for me at all. Everything is better - load times are quicker, fps better. And whether it's a change on the model or just a by-product, the in-cockpit lighting seems better too!Allcott

I had severe stuttering. Frame rates were not an issue. Has anyone who had stuttering problems seen them eliminated with this release? Thanks.Bob... :)

I'm a lot happier with this version than I am with its predecessor, I have to say.I haven't found any information to this effect (yet!) but can you tell me if this release allows flightplans entered via the RXP GNS430 to be displayed on the Flightmax displays, please? I'm not expecting it to and won't complain either way... Just wondering?Thanks for the update - this aircraft will get used a lot more now. :-hahCheers,Ian P.

I will be repurchasing her as soon as I can get my vertical market software out of the door(as the release date is looming over my head ;-))

There's finally a patch? Got to try it.I didn't have a problem with the actual framerate, but the whole sim would stutter (or more like lurch) once or twice every second. Very annoying, especially when landing. I also found the MFD's too dark and hard to read from the VC. For those two reasons, I've barely touched the plane since buying it. I didn't request a refund though, because I was hoping they would fix at least one of those two major issues.

The saved, activated, and exported RXP plans have shown in the Avidynes from first release.Hint: Build, Save, ACTiVATE, EXPORT via Right Click of FPL button and voila..FP displayed:-)

I've just flown almost an entire flight from the VC with no stutters at all, even in poor weather and over dense autogen.It was worth waiting for. :-)Cheers,Ian P.

Stuttering issues were our highest priority and everyone seems to enjoy what they have now.Gauge darkness in VC in ANY aircraft is a product of what the sim provides and what direction you are flying as opposed to the sun.We did include great nightlighting in VC to help alleviate this issue.

I think you have to load the flight plan through FS first as well, don't you? I remember reading in one or another of the forums I visit (probably either RXP's or Eaglesoft's) that someone would look into the possibility of directly displaying the flightplan without having to go through the FS interface.That answers my question - thanks. :-)Ian P.Ian P.

To help eliminate confusion...RXP plans may be built, saved, activated, and exported infrom their units to display properly in our Avidynes. You cannot IMPORT any plan into RXP units. This is as the real GNS.Eaglesoft GNS system allows any FS.pln format to be displayed by simply loading the plan from the FS Flight Planner menu. In addition the Eaglesoft units allow "on the fly" Direct To and Approaches to be loaded as outlined in the GNS430 instructions document.BOTH Eaglesoft and RXP plans have displayed in our Avidynes since day one:-)Hope this helps.

Good to hear, and quick! Very fast patch release, IMO.Even though she flies fine for me, I know it can't hurt to update!Thanks Eaglesoft!

FS bombs at the "loading scenery" phase (at 0%) every time I try loading the revised Cirrus. Other acft work OK in same scenario.Cannot get into forums, either. Have deleted cookies, flushed cache...no worky.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile
