Orbx FTX Downloads Paused

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to download the latest libraries and for some reason, the downloads in FTX are paused. Going to the download menu, none of the pending downloads have the pause button selected. 

Any idea how to resolve?

Why don't you ask on their forums?

Hi Brian

Check the tutorial here on AVSIM by Elaine:

 

Am on limited data for internet usage so had these issues whenever I would redownload ORBX files during a reinstall or whenever P3D got updated. Sometimes FTX Central hangs and you need to start over but there is some progress with the latest versions of FTX Central that have the resume/pause functionality.

There is a method to backup the core files for reinstalls etc. but I found the best solution that worked for me was to download my purchased sceneries manually and then just use FTX Central to provide updates, where required.

If you need to download your sceneries manually, the procedure is as follows:

1. Log in to your ORBX Account;

2. From your product purchases, select the scenery that you want to download;

3. On the scenery page, towards the bottom of the instructions is a "Manual Download: link that you will have to select in order to access the graphic, refer following link:

Hope this helps

Thanks - I was able to update the libraries by downloading the file manually. FTX still says 'paused'.

Hi Brian

 

I meant the full scenery installers to be manually downloaded and then installed using FTX Central.

Also have you tried clearing the Temp folder via FTX Central, Settings:

Could you also verify that you have enough HDD-space on your Temp folder (where the ORBX downloads are stored)

The path is also accessible via the Settings page in FTX Central

If the default location is out of space then you could add a new path that has sufficient space for your downloads

Regards

Thanks - I did clear temp, did nothing. There's several gb available on the volume, no space issues.

Hi

 

I'm out of answers other than have you manually downloading one of the ORBX addons that's stalling and then installing that via FTX Central.

Which sceneries are you having difficulty installing?

I was just wanting to update the libraries. I finally went to Orbx and manually downloaded the file and used FTX to install from the zip. Worked fine. 

FTX still says downloads are paused. I give up.
