New Service Pack 4.1 software is now available for the Just Flight Tornado GR1, providing a significant boost to frame rates along with other updates and fixes - see the Support section for all the details. Feedback from users has been very positive, so we hope this new software will enhance your flying experience.
If you have already bought the Tornado GR1 you can download the updated installer from your Just Flight account.
The Demo version (565MB) has also been updated, so give it a try if you haven't done so already - just add the free demo to your basket and proceed through our secure shopping cart. The value shown will be 0.00 and you don't need to enter any payment details; the only requirement is your name and a valid email address so we can provide you with the demo aircraft. The Demo aircraft is a fully featured model of ZA465 in the RAF 12 Squadron livery - the only restriction is that aircraft is limited to 15 minutes of flying time per flight.
What is new in this update?
• Performance (FPS) improvements
• Ability to adjust cockpit display refresh rates for better performance (updated configuration tool with refresh rate sliders - see note below)
• Light switches can now be controlled using keyboard assignments (Ctrl+L, Shift+L etc)
• Improved panel state system. The panel state will be automatically saved whenever a flight is saved and reloaded when that flight is loaded.
• IFF and VUHF display position/size in virtual cockpit adjusted
• Landing and taxi lights not illuminating ground - fixed
• Fuel set to empty when opening fuel menu on nav screens - fixed
• Map terrain shown in blue - fixed
• Landing gear indicator day/night mode - fixed
• Flight director symbols on HUD - fixed
• TACAN X/Y mode switch in virtual cockpit - fixed
• 'MacRoberts Reply' registration changed from ZA606 to ZA559
• Error when loading radar warning gauge - fixed
Note: The configuration tool has been updated to include sliders which control the refresh rates of the main virtual cockpit displays. The refresh rate of these displays can impact performance - the less often the displays are refreshed, the greater the performance (FPS). The default values (as shown in the image below) offer the best compromise between performance and display smoothness. Moving the sliders to the left (decreasing the corresponding value) increases refresh rate and reduces performance, and moving the sliders to the right (increasing the corresponding value) reduces refresh rate and increases performance. The tool still includes the option to disable these displays completely if required.
