Has anybody else tried this version too?
After flying with it for a few weeks now I must say it fixed the clouds but other things got worse:
- FG takes much longer to start - about two minutes longer than usual, and I mean just loading the GUI where you choose aircraft and airport and such.
- FGFS runs a bit heavier for the computer - I sometimes think that my MacBook Pro is going to explode in heat while hearing the cooler make the loudest noise I've ever heard. It's scary. And I haven't put any extra settings for better picture, in fact I reduced the overall quality in order to keep the noise not too loud but it's still the loudest I've heard.
- When exiting FGFS, sometimes FG crashes and gets closed as well
- And I started experiencing strange new bugs in my usual aircraft, the Hondajet. Speed and altitude values get multiplied by two (i.e. spd is being shown as 240 instead of 120 kts) and as a result you see your plane flying with the doubled speed but behaving like flying with the desired speed. Altitude values get very confusing too.
Any ideas or other experiences would be appreciated
I'm pretty satisfied with the new release. It fixes a issue with some FDM I had (http://www.flightgear.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=11801
). The rest behaves like the previous without noticeable changes.
Even frame rates are like before. But I'm running it on a tower MacIntel with 8 GB RAM.
The issue with the Honda-Jet sounds to me, like may have accidentally hit the a-key. Try A (Shift+a) then it should run with normal speed again. I didn't tested the Honda Jet, but I use a lot of different planes and they all behave normal here.
Altitude: check if you have selected feet or meters.
