2.5.0.4...Wow

Recommended Posts

Dave,

   2.5.0.4 has SO MANY improvements.   

     - I don't know what you did, but the performance is sooooo much better in this version.  2.5.0.3 was really slow, laggy, and a pain to get things done quickly.  Zooming in and out is like lightening fast now.
     - The taxi-way mnt stuff works great now
     - The ability to force set the runway now for airports that have no sid/star is awesome.  (I assume this is new and i have not just ever seen it before in the sid/star windows, lol)
     - I was having all sorts of problems entering in a route from KORD (which has no SIDs) to KROC which has no STARs in 2.5.0.3, it was almost impossible to make a flight plan.  That is all fixed now in this version.

   Good Work!

Joe

Thanks. I had no idea what performance was before this update but performance is a key decision I had to weigh up. It seems good enough. It can be kept away from the main sim cores with affinity. It is surprisingly heavy on cpu use but it doesn't matter much if it is not running on the same cores the sim is. The one thing I don't like is that the SQL database process P2A needs runs separately from the app and it cannot be kept off the main sim cores (system forbids it). But luckily it's impact is not noticeable so far because I'm guessing that the SQL process is merely doing quick database lookups not any processing of data.

If you have a spare PC or Laptop, network it and put P2A on the client PC. I have done this for years with my weather app and now P2A.

It takes the load off the sim PC.

Not only that but you separate the sound easily -- ideal for a headset separate from the aircraft sounds. I also use the new hotkey option to swap the sound output device between my overhead and my headset -- the overhead sound is handy when there are guests listening in.
