  1. That's fine if all is working OK for you.
  2. @Phil0671 Please note that the True Earth series of addons are designed to be kept together as they have the file prefixes of A/B & C. As Bassman says Orbx Central should place them correctly for you, and all the folders should be placed directly under Global Airports. This includes the Orthos. Don't place the Orthos just above any 3rd party mesh files as you may have other ortho or scenery altering files like SFD Global or Ortho4XP files placed between the TE Custom and Overlay files which will mask the Ortho file if not placed with the Custom and Overlay files. See my screenshot of how any TE series addons should appear in your scenery_packs.ini file. This is just a partial shot of the scenery_packs as there are 3rd party airports above Global Airports and lots of Ortho4XP files below X-Europe plus many libraries.

  3. Your screenshot of the files you shortcutted does not show the TEGB North Orthos folder, hence the default scenery The other thing you can try is to move the 3 TEGB North folders and Global Airports folder into the new Custom Scenery folder instead of shortcuts. Seeing as both the old Custom Scenery folder and the new one are in the same disk location it will not be a long process to move the files. It is not like moving from one disk to another. This way we can see if your TEGB North installation is OK. Please give me the sizes of the 3 TEGB North folders you have installed. TEGB North Custom =? TEGB North Overlay =? there are 2 overlay folders in TEGB North TEGB North Overlay =? TEGB North Orthos =? Bear with me on this issue as it is very difficult to find the problem when operating remotely.
  4. You possibly don't have enough free disk space on your drives to download, extract, convert and install successfully. Read this link and ensure you meet ALl the requirements paying particular attention to the amount of free space on your C drive where by default Windows places your Temp folder and if necessary make a new Temp file on a larger capacity drive, ensuring you change the path to the new Temp folder in Orbx Central/settings/downloader as per the attached pic:
  5. Am struggling here I'm afraid as all seems to be OK in your Log as far as I can see. I don't know what your XP graphics settings are, so please let me know. Please try the following: XP Graphics/Texture Quality to next but one from highest. AA to at least 4x Now please do the following. Clear your Temp folder and any backup you may have. See the attached pic on how to do and the location of any backup files for TEGB you may have. Run Verify files for TEGB. When that is done please do the next step: Rename your Custom Scenery folder to Custom Scenery.BAK. Make a new folder called Custom Scenery (in your XP directory). In your .BAK version make shortcuts for TEGB North, all 3 folders, plus Global Airports. Put those shortcuts into the new Custom Scenery folder and run XP and exit. Make sure Global Airports is above TEGB Custom/Overlay/Orthos Choose a flight in TEGB North and let me know if there is any improvement. This is to see if there is anything wrong with the TEGB product your end. I know you have redownloaded TEGB Norht but it may have been corrupted and may be reading from any backup copy you have made (possibly without knowing backups are being made)
  6. Welcome. Please post a pic of an example of this with the name and ICAO so I can test my end. TE Florida does have a runway alignment adjusting file called TE Florida Airports and you need to make sure it is above Global Airports in your scenery_packs.ini. Please attach a copy of that scenery_packs.ini file for me to check things out.
  7. Sound like you are not om n a fast internet connection. I empathise as a few years ago I was also on slow internet and it was 1hr15mins to download a gig as long as no one else used the net!! Give me your PC specs please. I can see from your pics that there is blurry ground but all the TEGB series looks blurry from only a few hundred feet as does any orthos imagery. Please provide a pic or two from about 3000ft looking down so I can clearly see what the issue is. I also need a pic or narrative of your XP setings please. I also need as an attachment, your XP log from your XP directory. Are the TEGB addons in your XP directory or in a Library on another drive? Sorry for so many questions but without being sat in front of your PC it is difficult to asses the possible causes of your issues.
  8. That is a water masking issue. @Tony Wroblewski for comment and noting please.
  9. What full version of XP have you installed? Please show me a pic of your AppData/local folder. If there is no install.txt file then something is wrong. I can only suggest that maybe you reinstall XP and it should make that txt file. Keep you current Custom Scenery folder sop you can place it into your new XP installation to replace the one that will be created.
  10. OK I now know where to look. In Orbx Central at the top of the screen there is a heading with the Sim labelled . I need you to scroll down and you will probably see that you actually have 2 copies of XP listed in Orbx Central. It is reading that data from your XP Installation log. You need to choose the correct installation. It is probably showing your Demo version and you cannot install addons to that version. Click on the down arrow and it shows all the XP installations you have. Move your mouse over the list and it will show you the location of the installation. i also suggest you got to User/your name/AppData/Local in your C drive and look nera the bottom of that folder and you will see x-plane_install_11. Then just remove the entry for the Demo version and that will ensure that Orbx Central only shows your full version to install into. See second pic: My pic below illustrates better what I am saying:
  11. This is not an Orbx issue as far as I can determine but you can maybe show a pic of the problem. I have not heard about this happening to anyone else who uses SoCal. The planes are either your payware or Laminar default I assume. I just Googled the problem and see this from the X-plane.org website forum dated 2017: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/113252-aircraft-turned-upside-down-while-standing-still/
  12. It is in 11.50 beta. It is where your vram is not able to keep up with the loading of the scenery. More prevalent when in a jet/tubeliner than when going slow in a GA plane. Are you running 11.50 beta? There are many reports of this anomaly on the x_plane.org website forum
  13. Welcome. Sorry about your issues but I can only refer this back to the Devs. @Raz Goeta for EGPH and guidance from @Greg Jones for EGNM posted May 17 @Greg Jones Customers are fixing reported issues. Poor fps at EGNM found to be caused by apron lighting and lack of ai traffic due to the restriction made for props only in the parking areas. This fix was posted by a customer but is needed to be done by the devs please: I opened the dat file for Orbx egnm in wed but couldn't see any light poles. Eventually figured out that I also needed to import the dsf file for engm and once I did that I could see the cars and other features including the lights. I simply selected each light in turn and deleted them then saved the dsf (all I did was click save and it seemed to work. I then saved the dat file overwriting the original (I figure I can always reinstall using Orbx central if it all goes wrong). Fired up xp and not only have I got my frames back but more surprisingly I still have light poles. I went back into the dsf and the poles have definitely gone so I wonder if I'm now seeing default xp ones or something? Whatever is going on it definitely seems to have worked and for the first time ever I can approach the terminal at egnm and not see frames take a nose dive!
