I bought this yesterday. I loaded up a flight, I set to fall textures, the load time was very very long as has been reported...mine about 10 minutes. I did a short flight. I liked the results without getting too picky.
I then loaded in a new flight out of Orbx Manchester...the sim textures loading thing came on..and it took forever to do nothing it just stalled....after some 20 minutes or more I just shut down the sim.
And then tried to load in Manchester from a cold reboot...the sim loaded normally but the texture were back to summer. So I clicked the change to fall...and the sim just sat there spinning and spinning doing nothing...my PC locked up. I rebooted my machine.
I'm frightened to even try this addon again...it seems dysfunctional not at all like I anticipated.
I tried again this morning (a day after struggling with it), tried to load in winter in Manchester area, after 20 minutes I shut it down.
Now, I uninstalled and reinstalled using the less than 5 gig video card option and am now again trying to get this to work.
I fired up XP11...it took a hugely long time to load, something over 15 minutes, which is unusual.
Then after a short flight, I loaded mild winter...that was over 30 minutes ago...it would load, it appears fully stalled, then suddenly its done.
So, why on earth does it take so bloody long to load, so long as to be dysfunctional?
Am I doing something wrong or is there some way to "fix" this?
