Alternative to waiting for V4.5 fix

Recommended Posts

Hello

As many users continue to wait for the V4.5 fix, would an alternative to be to do a fresh install of P3D and all add-ons or is the solution more involved, therefore, have to wait until the fix is released?

Hello,

I am guessing that there is not long to wait now, perhaps even today.

A simply return to client version 4.4 should have been be a good interim measure.

The Hotfix would basicaly be another Client version.

If you didn't had v4.5 on your system you can't even tell if you "feel" the performance issue. It might be that your system handles "the issue" quite easely if your settings are not far right, have moderate resolution, HW with some headroom,....

I ran v4.5 on HD res and only 1 monitor and the drop was not significant enough to notice. I had to prerecord a flight and look at the FPS Logging to see the difference.

Reverted to 4.4 (client) to ease my mind 😀 and installed v4.5 (client) again just this weekend to test with REX5. I can fly with it! Reinstalled just ASP4/ASCA all other things remained untouched.

I would reccomend you to do a full and clean v4.5 install and test your rig. If you have issues, revert to 4.4 Client till the HF is released.

Flying in regions which are not so fps intensive is another alternative. I (re)discovered really nice areas and airports in South America,  Asia  and some parts of Europe by doing so.

Till the HF has been released : fly with your AG settings at Normal instead of higher...

That might help with some detailed scenery like the True Earth series ....

I think the word "HOTFIX"  should be dropped as many weeks have now passed since the problem was acknowledged and what was expected to be a fast solution has not transpired as it appears that the problem is more serious

Reverting to V4.4 is probably the best idea as I do not like using V4.5  on half settings, which if not corrected soon will get people  use to using V4.5 with half settings, which will become the norm and pressure from continual messages of dissatisfaction will cease and therefore a fix will be delayed or not corrected until the next major release.

Many add-ons have been optimised for V4.5 and users are still waiting to use V4.5 to its full potential, not half settings
