  1. Hi, cloud shadows can patch an installed v3.4 to the latest version, but it doesn’t help install a FSS version on a new computer as FSS have disabled their license servers. Pm me your FSS order details and I will provide you with a fastspring version.
  2. I have seen rivers this morning in fake deep gorges that appeared normal yesterday
  3. Have you followed the instructions on zendesk? Changing the ip auto tuning strategy fixed my looping download issues. https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016844080-Download-stuck-on-packages-Install-loop
  4. And the uk seems to have lost the original two in the new update so the net gain was only three.
  5. If anyone else is stuck with a looping download of the large fs-base-cgl, I followed the zen desk advice to turn off tcp auto tuning and ( fingers crossed) I seem to have got much further downloading it. https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016844080-Download-stuck-on-packages-Install-loop
  6. I posted above, I have the same issue on the same file, after a max 1gb of it goes back to the beginning and tries to download that file again and again.
  7. Its the penultimate file for me 150/151 - now on attempt 21 - it gets to about 1Gb downloaded of it and then teh download speed falls below 1Mbps and after a while it gives up and restarts
  8. Mine has entered a loop trying to download fs-base-cgl-0.1.47.fspatch.001 - gets to 4/5% and then goes back to the beginning. On its 20th attempt now...
  9. Did you find what you were looking for?
  10. This has been resolved - note that the Fixer support forum is in the commercial section.

  12. Most of London consists of Victorian Terraces which have no space for parking so you must park on the street. There are no rights to park in front of your own property and so you usually have to park some distance away. I cannot see how people will charge their vehicles without either introducing rights to park outside your own house OR a massive investment in public recharging points every 10m. This is not an untypical urban scene london street parking terrace - Bing images
  13. Ok - I have been able to use my PC rather than my IPAD and I can see better comparing side by side. Yes the CFAS is clearly working on the MFDs and other displays . As I mentioned CFAS isn't one feature but rather a collection. To be honest I assumed none would work without AA being enabled which creates a Multi Sample Target but on reflection one of the features is texture over sampling on textures without mip maps and on reflection that would work without the MSAA target. It is that feature that improves MFDs and other displays and it is working as it should. I cannot explain why the trees and white lines on the panel at the far right between the switches are improved - I would expect both to be mipmapped textures and thus not benefit from CFAS - the alpha to coverage feature within CFAS that improves trees relies on the MSAA output
  14. It is incredibly difficult for anyone to comment on aa based on what I think are probably fairly low resolution JPEG’s that have gone through image compression. A lot of aa artefacts are also caused by motion and are not clear in a static picture. Turning aa off and on in the fixer just sets the fsx.cfg display setting option to turn aa on and off which should also appear in the fsx display setting from within fsx ie they control the same thing. The fixer 2x, 4x also sets another fsx.cfg setting MultiSamplePerPixel. 2x is very very low but you ought to see some difference along the edge of the cockpit window frames. The best form of aa is sgssaa which extends the base aa but can be very very expensive. cfas is a lower quality extension to base aa. It’s actually a collection of settings some of which rely on aa being enabled such that there is a multi sampled output buffer and some which do not. when enabled it should improve MFDs when viewed at a distance by reducing line flickering when the lines are diagonal relative to pc display. it improves tree flickering especially in winter when the eye point is moving but I am sure that this one relies on having a multi sampled texture to output to.
  15. I don’t understand what you trying to do. In both pictures antialiasing is turned off. Therefore the setting of cfas makes no difference as it is only does anything if aa enabled. As I have said forget about cfas can you tell the difference between 2x aa and no aa. if not then have you turned on some other form of aa such as fxaa by mistake?
