What happened to my Xplane?

Recommended Posts

Downloaded the newest beta but did not try it until I had some friends over..now I love to show of Xplane's nights and lighting when new guys show up - but,,,dang it,,,this time I fired up Xplane and loaded my favorite night airport and all was much darker and the main lights over the stations were not bright and looked like bad...I told them this was not the way it should be and turned it off.

So what did this beta do to the lights and how can I fix it? I do have an older version on another hard drive but really want to know why they would trash their best feature.

It is a beta, if you want to show off to your friends, then you should start up the stable release. Beta means full of bugs and not ready for mainstream. 

Going back to the stable release 11.26 takes 5 minutes, just uncheck the beta box in the installer.

If you download latest beta (7) it is all working fine. Frame rates seem fine too. I use 4K locked at 30 fps; tested using max objects with Orbx TE GB South - clouds few plus a layer of cirrus (using Ultra Weather app). Tested both day and night. Very smooth on my setup.

 

cheers
