v4.5 hotfix inbound...

Recommended Posts

According to the LM forums, we should get the hotfix for v4.5 this Tuesday: https://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6312&t=133420

I am really wondering what this hotfix will do on my end, as I did not observe any FPS loss thanks to my internal 30FPS limit. In the ideal case, I will have even better FPS than now on heavy airports, where I do not manage to get those 30FPS in all cases (also did not get them in v4.4)? I doubt... What I really hope nevertheless: that LM does not change the wonderful night lighting back. It is phenomenal how far the street lights are visible in v4.5 and it would really be a disappointment, if the hotfix would change this back to v4.4 distance. Anyway, we will see, if it fixes the FPS loss for many of us, it will be a great hotfix.

That came from another user on the LM forums, not from LM.  And it looked pretty tongue-in-cheek to me.

I can't official word of this anywhere. And I would be one of the first to know.

Yeah, wouldn't put too much into that statement from a user. Although, I'd really appreciate it if that hotfix would drop soon.

Ok, then sorry for this wrong information. I thought those people were serious about it. Why else you would post something like this, purposely misinforming others, strange attitude of some.

Jorge is a Avsim user and OZx developer. I am surprised he made that statement.

And agree with others, his statement has no foundation and he is not linked to LM.

An official reply was posted by Kayla:

"Hello,

We cannot discuss any release dates for Prepar3D updates.

Thank you for understanding.

Regards,
Kayla"

So that brought us no closer to an answer 😛

Hi Folks,

at least active sky has a new beta out now. I'm quite confident that this patch covers P3Dv4.5 HF1 compatibilty.

So, stay tuned...

Let me clarify for those who don't get the joke:

"It will be available on Tuesday" is a catchphrase taken from the opening scene of "Star Trek: Generations" in which Cpt. Kirk, Chekov and Scotty are a part of the VIP delegation on the maiden flight of the Enterprise NCC-1701 B.

The totally unexperienced Captain has to refer to multiple systems not being installed before next Tuesday, as this maiden flight is just a press stunt. The "On Tuesday" then evolves into a running gag in the opening scene, as multiple systems that are needed in an upcoming emergency are unavailbale due to their upcoming installment "on Tuesday".

Lol, I love the video.

In the meantime, we are still testing the HF as we want to be sure you guys don't moan again saying how bad we beta tested P3D.

So you will need to wait.. and before you ask, I am not sure which “Tuesday" it is as per the former joke.

Referring to us as "moaning again" might not be the best thing to say.  Hopefully, we are all experienced at flight simulation and getting the product that we pay for.  If the hotfix "ain't right", I think you will hear us vociferate our concerns about getting the best product for our hard earned money.

Hi Stan,

You have the right to ask what you pay for, absolutely.

However my message is directed at those that were attacking the Beta team and basically blaming us for the performance problems with 4.5.

Maybe you are right and it is not the best way to say it and I apologise if it offended you. I guess I wrote in a way that revealed my frustration in regards how people treated each member of the P3D beta cycle with their comments and attacks without fully understanding the process involved.

Regards,

Well with all due respect you made a right hash with the last one. At least they acknowledged it which is more than other developers would do. 

Out of interest is it a small exe fole type patch or a new installer?

Once again, I am one of the lucky ones - haven't had a single issue with 4.5.

If I were on the beta team I'd have said it was good to go live - AND I would have been correct.

From posts I've read it appears this glitch affects a small but relative number of users - it's great that LM was able to reproduce quickly.

Anyone who has ever released a product through beta testing knows how it goes - you can not cover every system out there. Blaming the team members is pointless and quite rude, IMHO.

Humour (or humor) does not travel well and in the world of flight simulation, it travels particularly badly.

It is best avoided as it is always misconstrued by someone, somewhere.

Now, did you hear the one about the..............

Why are y'all doing clean re-installs for a point release? It's entirely... point...less.

I totally understand.  And I, too, will be very tolerant of all the hard work you guys do.  Keep up the good work.

New machine, first install...that’s the point. That said I’m wondering if it’s time to start dabbling with xplane while waiting.

Because 4 to 6 months is about the time it takes to junk up the sim and flightsim PC with enough program installs, affinity masks, .cfg tweaks, shader hacks, monitor resolutions, xml edits, and more affinity masks that the whole sim feels dirty.  I think once I tweaked so much I had Flightbeam KSFO loading on my iPad. So a clean install and it feels right again then a week of telling myself just fly and enjoy, and then one afternoon I try something and the process repeats until v5.

one of the reasons they had this is because last year (after the FSL debackle) they threw a number of people of the beta team.

Its not like this 4.5 issues is an issolated small issue here liike a tree in a wrong place or an elevation issue in an obscure location , Its quite a signifiequent one. similar to the  bad data causing crashes near Canada for example,.or the issue of the sim crashing when you pull out a USB cable by mistake thats been around since that start. 

My point is if they had not hassilty known people off the beta team last year they would of found the problem before release and not had this issue.

People on here seem to think that LM are  some martyers or heros.  they are not.  They took on fsx for no other reason than to make profi as a miltary contractor.  Sure they done an amazing job buy they are a business and not for love

If they loved the flightsim community so as much they they say they do, they would of helped umberto with the canada problem or fixed the usb issue that i know countless people have for example.  

 

Thank god im on holiday at the end of the week, you watch the update will drop as i get in the uber to the airport.
