What's interesting/bothers/scares me about EF is that this is supposed to be a "hands-off" product, especially in auto mode.  But after reading 22 pages, folks have to keep making all kinds of changes whether it be to EF, the sim, etc.

I just can't help but avoid purchasing EF.

It's a fine product with a lot of potential, just think for a moment is currently the only product that you can make changes on the fly and be able to see it without restarting the sim . It has some issues but nothing that the team couldn't find a fix  . No product is ever perfect out of the box some have its minor and major issues , I bought EF from day one it had its issues that is currently being updated rapidly . Never give up and them , and it works wonders in my sim .

Be VERY VERY CAREFUL... At Frederico's request I just installed the beta fix and it COMPLETELY WIPED OUT MY P3D! Client, Content, Scenery, Add-ons, SimObjects, etc I am BEYOND INFURIATED! I am now going through a COMPLETE Re-Install.  REX is DEAD to me.

Ouch, that does indeed sound infuriating.

What version did you update from?

Whatever version was downloaded yesterday from the Transfer Manager. I've now deleted everything REX EF and I'm re-installing every ORBX Scenery, airport, other airports and luckily I keep back ups of my edited SImObjects panels and liveries. This is horrendous.

Thank you for the warning.  I'm sorry to hear about your troubles.  I know how maddening these things can be.  Sometimes I just want to give up on this hobby.

The only changes that are being made manually when in auto mode is adjusting HDR bloom/brightness, at least in my case. I haven't tested the new updates myself yet but it seems HDR has been fixed, which would mean you (or me) wouldn't have to touch a thing and could just leave it running in the background letting it do its thing.

From the things I managed to test I can tell that HDR / Bloom has indeed been corrected (or it performs way better).

The issue where the scene brightens up after looking at a bright light in the cockpit, was still present in this Beta.

For those not understanding what I wrote:

You sit in the VC and look outside -> everything looks ok.

You pan the view and look at something bright e.g. flood lights then return to the previous view -> the scene is much brighter and does not return to normal.

You have to switch to an outside view then go back to get it to the initial level.

New to EV Force.  Everything seems fine EXCEPT FOR THE TERRAIN BRIGHTNESS!  Is there a manual way to get my scenery back to normal P3d levels?  If I'm reading this thread correctly, it seems brightness is an issue.  Has anyone come up with even a partial solution?

I wanted an automatic EV Force....seems that is not going to happen.

The HDR has been worked out. We are working out the Beta installers and will be available soon.
