  1. Thank you for fixing this Oliver, I still use it, every sim session, it is my favourite App. I had just been putting up with the slow load times… I just changed my routine to account for it. Kind regards, Mark
  2. Hi Oliver, Virtual beer, virtual High Five and a big thank you. Whatever you did, LLTX is now back in business.. Thanks again, Mark
  3. Hi Oliver, Yes, the IATA flight designator i.e.EK seems to be what is being sent by RealTraffic now rather than the ICAO designator i.e UAE. So put another way, in LLTX, if I don’t have Fill in traffic selected, no flight is ever picked up. If I select Fill in traffic, I will get traffic but under the flight column, it will be QF1588 for example with the airline column showing unknown. Whereas before the update, the designator under the flight column would be QFA1588 and the airline column would be populated with Qantas. When I look at the RealTraffic radar screen, the aircraft data now says for example QFA867 (QF867) B738 VH-VXE where as before the update, it would say QFA867 B738 VH-VXE. The (QF867) data seems to be is being sent to LLTX, and of course, that does not match the .cfg which is why the airline column says unknown and the aircraft will be the right type but a random airline i.e.my JQ743 (should be JST743) is a Vietnam Airlines A320 taxiing at the airport, rather than a Jetstar A320. I hope that assists a bit more. Thanks again, Mark
  4. Hello Oliver, RealTraffic has just released a new version 9 build and Lorby Live Traffic 3.03 b05_P3D_V5 does not seem to be able to read the data from the new version. Unfortunately RealTraffic auto updates and I can’t revert back to the previous version to check whether the new version 9 is definitely the issue. It seems the issue is RealTraffic is sending the two digit airline code i.e JQ when Lorby Live Traffic uses the three digit ICAO code i.e JST. It was only when I selected Fill in traffic was I able to get a stream and the flight number column was showing JQ460 not JST460. I hope you are keeping well? Kind regards, Mark
  5. I can confirm the above fix works, replacing the 3 x 2021 files with the 3 original files from the original version solves the issue. I had to install the original version into a “false” FSX directory to get the installer to run so I could retrieve the files and then uninstall however the 3 old files make the product work (and in fact, I can’t tell the difference between the three new files versus the three old files… I could launch P3D and view the airport but as soon as I moved north towards the Thai Hangar, it crashed. Doing a top view, the scenery looks the same with the old ones so it is a good fix until the developer solves the issue).
  6. Hi Michael, No issue just trying that. Disclaimer is I have Orbx Cityscape Sydney so I don’t know if that disables any default files? Notwithstanding my issue (for the first time) last night. Like everyone else, I am at a loss and interesting the file fix for MK Studios EFHK in this thread did not work for me, but lowering Autogen from High to Medium did! I don’t think this is going to be an issue users can uncover I am afraid! Cheers, Mark
  7. So to quote myself, in the interest of full disclosure, it has now happened to me. At the gate at Fly Tampa Sydney to fly to Hobart in the FSLabs A320. All of a sudden I had an awful lag doing pre-flight and looking at my GPU, it was idling where normally it would be at about 40%. CPU was normal but giving me 2FPS or 10FPS or 32FPS… it was very odd and despite all my efforts to clear in sim to save the flight, I could not. I am now on my way after re-booting.
  8. I use studio drivers only and am on the latest 472.84 (3080Ti) and I quite literally have flown all around the world over the last week or so with 5.3 HF1+1 using the PMDG 777 and FSLabs A320 almost daring the issue to occur including real time long haul SYD-SIN and SIN-ZRH (777) and DOH-HEL (A320) and nothing. I use EA On, VOL Off, with ASP3D 8027 with ASCA and the TOGA products with GSX, and I have all Orbx Global Products. I would not normally come onto a thread to state I don’t have a problem as I know that is annoying to those who do and are trying to solve it (a bit like saying my car is stolen and someone else saying well my car is not stolen - it takes you nowhere!) but I can confirm no issues on Nvidia Studio Drivers, and can back that in with more than 40 hours of real time 5.3 HF1+1 flying (as I am home in an empty house as my wife and children are overseas visiting her mother who due COVID they have not seen for 2 years). So I have been able to have a sim-a-thon. Mark
  9. Thanks Oliver, will download when I land from my current flight.
  10. Seasons Greeting Oliver, and thank you for continuing to update this great program. I went to extract the latest version of Traffic however it does not provide the box for the password, it errors with a windows error code. It may be an issue on my side but thought I should report it. I will try again later. Kind regards, Mark
  11. I bought it given I live in and fly out of Sydney and sitting at the gate in the PMDG 777 with Australia AU2 and Fly Tampa YSSY the VRAM is 7.8. That’s not an issue for me but would knock out most folk with a 8GB card. I am using 5.3 HF1 (about to download HF2) and I can’t try with FSLabs as I have it disabled due to it not been compatible with the latest P3D versions yet and it is normally heavier on VRAM than the 777.
  12. Hi Fluff, I have everything Orbx, all installed outside P3D on its own drive and I upgraded from 5.2 HF1 to 5.3 following this advice: https://forum.orbxdirect.com/topic/192424-installing-a-p3d-v5-hotfix-or-update-correctly/ I have no issues at all and in fact I have a demonstrable performance improvement with 5.3. I am delighted with it except they still have not fixed the awful AA but that is another thread 😊 User experience could certainly be hardware related. I have a COVID PC, that I built during the lockdowns we had in my part of the world for something to do to amuse myself when I was not working from home. Intel i7 11700K CPU OC 4.8G + Corsair H100X Water Cooler + MSI Z590 Pro WiFi motherboard + Kingston 32GB (4x 8GB) DDR4 3200MHz + 256G Samsung 950 Pro 2200mb/s + 2 x 1TB HDD Seagate 7200rpm + Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti 12GB GDDR6X Video Card+ Matrexx RGB Case + 28" ASUS MG28UQ HD 4K Monitor + Windows 11 Professional 64 + Cooler Master 850w Plus Gold Power Hope all is good at VIR… we are just getting back to INTL flying at QFA… did my first DEL plan today 😊 Regards, Mark
  13. Yes, I have had it forever as well to the extent I won’t depart YMML if the duty RWY is 16, I will choose another flight from another airport. I literally raised the issue a decade ago with ORBX when I was in FSX on v.1. On P3D 5.3 using v.3, still the same and I must have had 4 different PC’s in that time.
  14. Gents, In EA mode, not using volumetric clouds this time, but now using ASP3D + ASCA, I have noticed that minimum cloud draw distance and maximum cloud draw distance don’t work? You seem to fly atop of a 90nm x90nm “pancake” with the clouds following you in a bubble. Is this right? The manual does not say these cloud draw distance settings only work in Non EA mode? Mine are set min 60 max 150 but it seems it is using default 90 regardless of the settings?It also does not seem to be manipulating the range slider in P3D like it does in non EA? Can someone check, as either have a borked ASP3D/ASCA install or it is what it is. I have almost decided I prefer the FPS hit than flying with volumetric clouds. I have never seen anything like them through any cockpit window I have looked out of (and I don’t often as I am scared of heights 🥰🥰).
  15. Hi Ray, You can have volumetric clouds provided by LM with EA enabled but you cannot have 3rd party clouds with EA enabled AND cloud resolution on any setting other than off. Have it set to low or medium et al and you get what shipped with the product and it ignores 3rd party input. On, you get what comes in the box and ASCA et al is ignored. It is one or the other. Your system is not too dissimilar to mine with the exception being I am on a 6700K. I also run with HT on like you (yes I read the forum 😊). Try EA on, cloud resolution medium, (volumetric fog is ticked and greyed out), HDR on, all 3 HDR settings at 1.0, Auto Exposure unticked, dynamic lighting ticked, ASP3D launched but close ASCA and see what you think. You can’t bork your sim, just clear your shaders before you try. I have no idea why we all have such different experiences with similar systems, the joy of simming I suppose! Anyway your up and about and on my side of the world it is time for bed. Look forward to any further insights you gain. Mark
