Quite a Stable Beta

Recommended Posts

I'm impressed with the stability of XP11 beta.  For what I've done to it the past few days while installing and uninstalling airports, scenery and aircraft plus experimenting with different settings it has held up amazingly well.  I know that P3D would not have patiently put up with all this abuse without many freezes!

Same experience here and same graphics card as you! It seems as they said xp is on steroids :)

One thing to credit here is that in most situations, X-Plane doesn't care how you install, organize, and move around folders under the Aircraft and Custom Scenery folders (as long as you rebuild the scenery ini file and follow instructions for things like the HD and UHD scenery mesh). 

 

Another factor is that so much of the good stuff in scenery and aircraft is either freeware, or else payware that doesn't involve extensive DRM and complicated installation procedures. You just move it into a folder.

 

Some of that may be down to how X-Plane supports not just Windows, but Mac and Linux too, so developers can't get too draconian and OS-specific about installation procedures. There are a few suppliers who use DRM like X-Aviation and RWDesigns, but it's relatively painless in my experience.

Very stable for a beta indeed. I had 3 lockups but those were all due to a known bug with the GPS and can easily be avoided (as I know now). Other than that XP11 is perfectly stable.
