Is REX Texture Direct & Soft Clouds compatible with P3Dv4?

Recommended Posts

Any one knows?. They seem to be extremely silent about updating their products for P3Dv4.

Cheers, Ed

I just pointed REX to my v4 install location and installed my texture themes. Works just as well as in v3.

i wouldn't do that ryan..evidently everything looks ok.but in certain conditions the clouds are going black..might mess you up when the patch is released.

   just a heads up

In case there is a problem, can I not just use the backup of the original files REX made to restore things to default and then install the patch?

course you can Ryan .just don't forget to do it before you apply patch. also would back up prepar3d.cfg and  EXE.dll.

Thanks guys I was wondering about this.

So according the REX folks, a patch is coming (as well some new products)

Can use the most recently updated interface to install the textures and mostly it should work.

Finally, absolutely ensure that a backup is made because there are reported issues and should be reversed before using a patched version of their texture installs.

OK I after updating to the most recent version. I pointed to P3D V4 and tried restore.  I heard it do something, then went to the location where the backups are stored under REX4 Plus Soft Clouds...and I find a FSX backup, a P3D V3 backup but no P3D V4...where is the backup stored so I can be actually sure it made a backup, does anyone know?

I'm on same side, but I do not apply water and waves yet as I want to keem them default. All absolutely fine for me.

 

Hope that new version will do not overwrite original files and will use add-on.xml .

Quoting myself here. But when I apply to make a backup it does not store it in the default location.

So I manually made my own backup. Except I saved the entire default folders just in case.

If you read the original thread posted on REX's website they are now reporting that many of the products now have a "mid-July" release date.   No biggie. 

Thanks,
