XP 11.50 FINAL RTM is out now.

Recommended Posts

As I posted in another thread yesterday, I updated to XP 11.50 last night, enabled Vulcan, and saw my FPS more than double. I can now fly with clouds and AI traffic and still get above 30 FPS.

If you're still seeing 11.50r3 in your "about" file, Ben just posted on the Developer site that R3 __ IS ___ the 11.50 full.  Just in case some were wondering.

Same here. I did my standard MD-80 flight out of KSEA and over the city and usually at max settings I am at 16-20FPS and with the new patch and enabled Vulkan I was around 28-32FPS quite the impressive increase.

I tried it out. Yeah. Very impressive performance increase. All sliders to the max.

Didn't try any complex aircraft since they all required yet another validation and I can't find my serial numbers 😞

I just upgraded to  the release version and every aircraft I tried has low fuel pressure warning and will not start. I'm using the same procedures that I always use, but nothing. Anyone else see this?

UPDATE: Well, I reloaded the sim and it works fine. Not sure what happened, but I'll take it...

No sign of an update appearing for me 

Tells me I have the most up to date version available ie 11.41

Am I just impatient?

You have to run the installer and select update.

Or just wait another few days, they are randomly staggering the release to users (that do not manually trigger it via the installer) to curtail a possibly support problem if something goes wrong that wasn´t caught in the beta.

By the way: The final version is called 11.50rc3 or 11.50r3 - so if you see this on your computer, you have the final version!

Cheers, Jan

<START RANT>

I wish Laminar would stamp their releases correctly.

RC3 = Release Candidate 3

If that becomes the GA 'General Availability' it should update the version so it is clear that you do have the GA. So 11.50 GA or Final. Anyway it's up to them but after working  in IT for 20 years and QA for 11 years we have never released a Final build to be released to customers stamped as RC, causes too many questions from customers.

I'm, by no means, an IT expert on the "pro" level, and correct me if I'm wrong, but simply changing the text from RC3 to FINAL, and telling people to download that copy (and we're talking well over 100 000 customers), wouldn't that chew up a ton of (expensive) bandwidth?  All for a change in text from RC3 to FINAL?  If that's the case, I would absolutely understand why they wouldn't do it.

I'm not an IT or QA pro either but I do think that </START RANT> at the end of a rant is unlikely to stop it. You might think that QA would have spotted it and stopped the rant themselves before releasing the comment.

I stand corrected. No wonder I was never IT or QA.🙂
