  1. Hi again, On Monday I requested help. I opted out of fast lane as advised. My efforts to reinstall earlier version of Orbx Central (4.1.7) fail when the old version installer updates the install to the current fast lane version I'm trying to replace. You have advised me you will have a fix for the crashing of Orbx Central Worker (apparently my issue) in the next fast lane release. So last five days I can't go back and I can't go forward. Perhaps you could tell me how I can use my older version installer to actually install the older version? Thanks, T.H.
  2. Hi Josh, I don't even remember signing up for fast lane. I must have done it early, I remember being excited about the coming "FTX Central". As my attempts to install an earlier version of OC have been thwarted, I'll just be waiting for your fix. Thanks for the heads up and good luck. T.H.
  3. After following your link, I guess you're shrugging in the general direction of C++ redistributables. Newer ones are installed therefore I suppose I'd have to uninstall the more recent ones? Doesn't seem sensible to me. Please illuminate. Central worked just fine before last update. T.H.
  4. Trying to install updates to central and northern rockies , Alice and Milford. Checking system requirements is as for as it gets. Operating system: Windows 10 Pro Simulator: Prepared V5 w/hotfixes Screenshot: Issue: central.log
  5. As stated above, the autogen buildings and aircraft at Milford Sound have disappeared. All that's left are a few people a dog and an occasional automobile!? that bumps along the land beside the runway. Have tried verifying files for NZ and Milford as well as reinstalling NZ. Have also synced the sim. Have tried deactivating and reactivating NZMF. Have tried to attach screenies but can't recall the process, as I've only done it once, and have been denied permission to view Nick's link as to how. Advice would be appreciated. I'm a little worried the dog might decide to chase the auto and get hurt. Operating Systen Win10 pro Simulator: Prepared 4.5 Screenshot: Issue: NZMF autogen dissappeared central.log
  6. Hi Mitchell, Thanks. Looking good now. The gulf is back and NZMF is in stunning form. To answer your question, after the crash and trying everything else I mentioned above, when I reinstalled Prepar3d I tried to fire it up right away hoping that all would be well. That's when I got the request for a valid scenery config and discovered the blank cofig. FYI this turned into a twofer for me. Several months ago I'd borked an AIG ai traffic install and killed all my default ai and Orbx ai too. Everything else seemed ok but It annoyed me enough that I decided I was going to wait for Orbx Central's release to start using the sim again thinking to get everything sorted at that time. Well, flying over the newly restored Gulf of Mexico to my surprise I spotted ai traffic! I right clicked and checked traffic and it was all back. So I went to NZMF and spent a while watching Orbx traffic around that beauty spot. Apparently your terrain config fixed my ai! Perhaps the borked AIG install contributed to terrain config damage? Anyway, thanks again. I will continue to migrate the rest of my Orbx stuff with Orbx Central. Best Regards, Tom
  7. Here you go I think. Had to learn how to post sceenies. First two are Eglin other is NZMF. A post above mine indicates Lorby-Si may be contributing. I have that installed automatically doing what it does. Best Regards, Tom scenery.cfg terrain.cfg
  8. Thanks Doug and Mitchell for the replies. I'm unable to find any clues in the user guide Doug outside of not saving backups on a NAS without regediting. I shall do that if I decide to leave my backup downloads folder on a NAS. I don't have any other of my Orbx stuff on a NAS. Mitchell, I have done as you asked and I'm still looking at the Gulf of Mexico National Forest and Prairie Reserve when flying out of Eglin. Perhaps you can give me some procedure to completely uninstall the entire shooting match and start fresh. Zero Orbx, zero Prepar3d. I am still willing to try less drastic measures it you have more suggestions. Other addons I'm using include Active Sky, Envetex, Chaseplane as well as various airports including some from Flightbeam. Aerosoft and FSDT and a host of aircraft. Latest log included. Thanks for your consideration. Best Regards, Tom central.log
  9. Howdy, My Orbx Central experience was going well until I worked my way down to TE GB South. During the clean up process for that item my pc froze and then crashed. Rebooted itself came back up and Orbx Central notified me TE GB South was successfully installed. Fired up the pc as I had done for the others I had previously installed and Prepar3d 4.5 told me it couldn't start without a valid scenery config. Well this led to verifications, downloads, uninstalling Orbx global stuff repairing and then reinstalling Prepar3d (still told me it needed the scenery config). Finally dawned on me to check the actual scenery config folder and lo and behold there was a scenery config. Opened and it was blank! So I got wise picked out the latest backup I could find and installed it. Well that allowed me to start Prepar3d. Hallalujah! But my joy was seriously tempered when jetting out of Eglin I discovered the Gulf of Mexico had been replaced with a forest and a prarie. Similar situation on the other side of the world at NZMF. Bedtime. Well this led to forum searches today that were mostly unfruitful. Another round of verifications, uninstalls, et al with no Gulf return and finally the creeping urge to chuck it all. Well actually to try a reinstall of FTX Central if that's even possible now. But before I give up on Orbx Central I humbly request the aid of Those Who Know on this forum.

  10. I offer my respect to John Venema for acknowledging responsibity for the dearth of Orbx products that are currently available to P3DV2 users. I miss all of mine and am considering his suggestion to revert to the world of FSX DX10 fixer. I think the Orbx boys will sort it before too long. However, I would not be surprised if the passionate flight simmers on these forums were to suss a soulution. I would code if I had a clue. Regards, Tom
  11. Thumbs up. Looking forward to this one a while. Seconding Vora's post, Alice Springs looms large in my view of Australia.
  12. Lurker surfacing. Just to say to the best fs devs in the world, please leave your options open. You are artists trying to make a living in a media mysterious to most of your patrons. So your creativity is also required in your business practices. You are great at what you do and recieve daily praise in the forums from those of us who recognize/grok your skills. You accept it gracefully. Some few people post negative comments. Not always such graceful acceptance, but nearly always an attempt to make the patron happy. You clearly recognize the import of cultivating the artist-patron relationship. The forums are a wonderful resource for you and your business. I visit most days and am always impressed with the conviviality. I don't always learn something about what Orbx is up to, but the communication is splendid. Being an artist requires a healtly ego. For many reasons there will always be criticism regardless of the level of creativity. Occasionally a patron may kick sand in the paint but if the artist wipes it off and finishes the painting it will be available for a more atuned sort. Or even the kicker after he sobers up. As you have many involved patrons sharing the expenses (and more after the USA work becomes available) rather than an adoring few the sand may fly a bit more frequently but the finished work also has more potential buyers. Seems to me the flying sand is generally viewed by the Orbx artists as a sign of caring patrons in a healthy forum. And is taken with a grain of salt. Tom
  13. Hi fellow simmers, The idea of Orbx being in need of a financial leg up to continue doing this world beating work has flushed me out of my customary lurking. I'm a Yank who has never set foot in your lovely land but through my Orbx inspired participation in our pastime have come to appreciate a great deal about it. Though I've lived and worked in New Orleans for many years, I sometimes find myself talking about Australia in the manner of one whose been there many times. I get quizzical looks from those who know I've not, but let the mystery be. The idea of this work and the associated community it supports being in some doubt troubles me greatly. I know Orbx is a business and as such should live and die by the demands of the marketplace. But for me it is doing work on a quality level that keeps me interested in flight simming and for that I am grateful. The illusion of flight that Orbx is continuing to coax out of FSX is truly inspiring. I have supported them by purchasing all of their products even as I know I will likely never spend the hours required to see all they have already produced let alone what is forthcoming in the next several years. Since I see the idea of a platinum membership has not been rejected out of hand, I would propose it be allowed to remain open for continued consideration. I would purchase one with no expectation of preferential treatment on this marvelous forum. The artful work and the online community it supports really is the catalyst that makes my investment in a good deal of payware aircraft and a dedicated computer worth the freight. What I would be paying for is more than the sum of its parts. Tom
