Update to v4.5 HF2

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

When updating only the client from HF1 to HF2, what extra steps should be taken for add-ons like the following?

• Orbx sceneries

• TomatoShade and reflection profiles

• GSX

At some point after P3Dv4.4, it's recommended to update also the Content, this way you won't miss any of its included PBR capabilities. This will depend on how you did your previous updates after v4.4.

Beware after a Client installation you have your entire ShadersHLSL folder put back to default, so you will have to re-apply your modified shaders again. I'm a PTA user, and in this case, you should re-apply your preset of choice, don't know anything about Tomato Shade.

Agreed, when installing P3DV4.5. HF2, it is time to also update the Content.. something I had not done for several previous updates.  This time it was indeed required. :happy:

I might add that the default shaders in HF2 are better than before, so my Tomatoshade profile is not longer required.. I am currently flying with default shaders and loving it..

Thanks you guys!

I just completed the client update without content as the previous version was HF1. However, I think I may update the content in the next update. Before I uninstalled the HF1, I started TomatoShade and restored default shaders which had been backed up.

You can also simply delete all the shader files, in the Shaders folder.

P3D will rebuild them.. just give it a minute or two..
