no FPS hit at all!? Are you sure about that. The fs9 version was quite the frame hog. I cant imagine that the FSX version wouldnt be the same.

did they fix the night lighting in the VC? They claimed they couldn't unhook the dome lights to the landing lights or make the vc cockpit dark with only gauge backlighting in FS9.

It probably depends on where your systems bottleneck is. I have aicraft the some claim 'no FPS hit at all' and can demonstrate a large FPS hit depending on the aicraft. In the cities I fly I still get ~24 fps normally with my worst FPS affected aircraft so it isn't a problem for me but flying the default planes (on rare occasions!) I can get around ~40fps.In my old system with FS9 there was a much smaller difference between the default 737 and the PMDG for example.I have been looking forward to the ATR though!

Thanks so much to Flight1 and Hans Hartmann (the dev) for giving the upgrade to us for free! This only increases my loyalty to Flight1 and/or Hans Hartmann's design house. Looking forward to buying more interesting products from them.Cheers,Siggy

>Yes!!!>Here you can find the free upgrade :--)))))>http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=atr1>>A warm thanks to the Flight1 team.>The airplane is beautiful and no fps hit at all :-)>Guys, you rock!!!>>:-beerchug To say there is no FPS hit is rather meaningless when you don't provide your system specs and FSX settings I just installed it and it does indeed have a hit on my system which I expected. Still a great addon and flyable on my system at the airports where there isn't a great deal of scenery.

JIMJAM,Interesting.I had my very first " MICROSOFT encountered ....error and need to shut down " using FSX with my first flight in the ATR running ASX. Really took me by surprise, FSX has been solid as a rock so far on my machine.Hope a fix is in the works.cheersGreghttp://www.fs2crew.com/linepilot.jpg

I visited the ATR forums and the word is out.So far its the "we cannot recreate the problem" being repeated but someone will or already has figured it out.Its such a nice plane I do not mind shutting off ASX until a fix is found.

I am getting good frame rates with the ATR. That is with reduced settings (no autogen,2 meter terrain, 38 meter mesh, just about zip for traffic, no major city in the distance, etc) along with UT USA (also reduced setting). The plane is very flyable from the VC and much smoother that FS9 relative to gauge update rates. However, with my system, I still prefer FS9 with lots of traffic, autogen, UTUSA maxed out and KPDX. And I'm still very disappointed that ACES released FSX knowing full well it's performance stunk. The ONLY excuse is they were also blind sided by a late Vista and DX10 release. Other than that, they are not getting my Simulator of the year award. (this year). :)Bob...PS Thank you Flight One and the ATR project folks for offering a free upgrade! Flight One is the best in the business!

I guess it doesn't work with shared cockpits- or does it? Free, wow! Flight 1 rocks!Best Regards, Donald T.FLYing? It's cool. Trillions of birds and insects can't be wrong.

While all add on developers have their own business decisions to make, and I wouldn't suggest what they should do, Flight 1 has repeatedly shown that they are willing to make free and very low cost upgrades available, even for completely new products like Ultimate Terrain X - USA. This is in contrast to developers who have taken existing FS9 products and charge a high percentage of the original price to port to FSX. I'm not arguing the business specifics, correctness, validity, or necessity of anyone's decision, only that I make my own purchase decisions accordingly. Thanks Flight 1.
