Hi fellow Simmers.
Here is what I posted early today on FSPS's forum.
"I am really interested in using this but unfortunately I find that the 5 minute evaluation period is nowhere long enough to see what benefit if any the program is giving even with 5 trials giving 25 minutes in total. I use as my main test flying over Canberra in Australia with ORBX scenery, city and airport which drops my frame rates from the normal 30 down to about 12. It looks like FSX Fiber might be increasing that slightly to around 14.5 but 5 minutes is no where near enough time to give it a good test and be sure before I pay out for it. There are several other airports I would like to try it out with before I considered purchasing. I have already used up my quota and I am not convinced I am getting much improvement but I may not be doing the product justice due to the lack of real testing time. It would be better if you could remove the time factor entirely and just limit it to say 5 trials without any time restriction. Then we would have a far better chance of really seeing how it improves things. I am sure I am not the only one who will be finding the current 5 minutes too restrictive to test it.
Also, most of the time I fly FSX without being connected to the Internet. Does this mean that I am unable to use Fibre? If that is the case then that also is too restrictive. Again I am certain there are a lot of simmers out there that do not fly using the Internet.
Just my thoughts for what its worth."
So far there has been no response from them. I also copied it in a Support Ticket to them so I will wait and see what happens. As I said above, it "seemed" to give a slight improvement when I was flying around Canberra but 5 lots of 5 minutes isn't even close to a reasonable time to test this product and decide whether it really works and is worth around $40.00. I would love it to work and I would even happily pay the rather high price if I could be really confident it works for me. In the meantime I will not be purchasing it. I will post FSPS's reply when I get one. To be fair it was only today I posted on their site.
