  1. I went back to Windows 8.1 Pro from Windows 10. Seems to be more stable and not only for X-Plane. Can't really say what the difference is with regard to FPS as I do not run both plus I do not chase FPS anymore. I get it running okay and never start an FPS counter, I find them distracting and half the time you just spend trying to get a few frames per second more. If the sim seems to run smoothly I'm fine with that.
  2. In the settings of ASXP there is a checkbox for VATSIM weather online. Default is unselected. I have not used it myself but I guess it works just as in P3D.
  3. I purchased at Just Flight. For me in Europe it was the cheapest at only 36 euro's. Anyway I am happy with my purchase so far. Added the high performance textures and hardly any frame drop going through clouds now. Weather depiction and injection seems to be fine. No stutters etc and my FPS is als fine. At last a decent weather setup dialog. Last time I used this was back in FSX days about 4 or 5 years ago. It's like one of my kids came home :)
  4. Well I paid for it but cannot download it. Sent a support ticket. Hope they fix it soon :)
  5. I will buy as well if only to give my support to HiFi so that they have some impetus at least to continue developing. It's a software developer that I trust will bring many updates and improvements in the future.
  6. You could just save the files 'X-Plane Joystick Settings.prf' & 'X-Plane Keys.prf' somewhere safe and restore them in case of a mishap. They can be found in <x-plane folder\Output\preferences> Personally I automatically backup these folders on a daily basis.
  7. Yes it can just move the folders to another drive and create shortcuts of those the folders in your custom scenery folder. My example: SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/X-Plane Landmarks - Dubai/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Global Airports/ SCENERY_PACK F:\Orbx_A_GB_South_TrueEarth_Custom/ SCENERY_PACK F:\Orbx_B_GB_South_TrueEarth_Overlay/ SCENERY_PACK F:\Orbx_C_GB_South_TrueEarth_Orthos/

    Active Sky for X-Plane

    Guys and girls this will be a first iteration of hopefully many. Let's rejoice in the fact that HiFi are coming to XP. This is a company I at least trust will come with many enhancements in the future. Definite buy for me.

    XPlane11 Rookie Mistakes

    Many people might not know this but there is also documentation for X-Plane in the ..\X-Plane 11\Instructions folder. There's quite a lot of useful information for beginners and experienced users alike to be found there.

    X-Plane shuts PC down

    Graphic settings on the right are CPU related and graphics on the left GPU related if I'm not mistaken. X-Plane is not really multicore enhanced so even having 32 cores will not help except for some plugins that may use multi core or offload their tasks to another core than X-Plane, I think Hot Start's TBM 900 does that? Maybe more plugins do it to. Reflections and clouds are a killer does not matter what GPU or CPU you have your FPS will take a dump when it get's real cloudy or you use too many reflections. So in theory you have a pretty good GPU, nothing wrong with that so you can raise those settings a bit and settings that are controlled by CPU you will need to lower. I have reflections turned off but that's personal preference. I have a i76700K@4.7GHz , 32MB ram and 1080ti and running of an NVME m.2 drive and still cannot have everything maxed out, that's life :) But I do get a good average of 40 - 50 fps in ToLiSs a319 / FFA320 / Rotate MD80 etc at payware airports with medium cloud coverage. Through heavy clouds it drops to 20 FPS. G-Sync helps a bit in these circumstance so it's far less of a stutter just a more smooth albeit slower framerate. This is all driving an Asus Predator 3440x1440 monitor.

    X-Plane 11.30 Beta is out!

    Agree with your comments. Laminar needs the feedback to make things better and as a user of X-Plane for 3 or 4 years it is now starting to come of age so to speak. And this being beta I do not judge any changes in FPS now to be what it will be in the 11.30 release. It was the same during previous beta releases but things gradually got better as time went on. Offtopic: JDA Software is a customer of ours i.e. uses our software, it's one of the few of our customers that has not gone through a name change in the last 16 years :)

    TBM-900 for X-Plane released

    Yea same guy who gave us Betterpushback :) Totoritko on Twitch. A stickler for perfection so it will be a "Study Level" plane in every senses of the word.
  14. Well yea poll's like this are always a bit skewed but from my own personal experience I see many YouTube and Twitch streamers streaming much more X-Plane than they used to , there are many more places on the interwebs to get data from. I would like to see this exact poll a year from now to see if anything changes. 😉
  15. Well Laminar should be able to help. Is there anything in the log.txt file
