So yeah, 2016.1.1 works on WinXP..

Postby LesterBoffo » Wed Apr 06, 2016 4:46 pm

:lol: 8-)

Not a request for help as much as a statement of fact. Yeah, it works on my box with the outdated software, we'll see how well it chugs along in MP mode in Europe before the memory chokes and game crashes. I usually can't go more than 70~120 miles without a game crash. I'm not noticing a big increase in frame rate. And, my big beef with the new software to replace FRrun, who was the pointed headed ninny that decided it would be OK to make the selection of a different airport a hassle? How much more time would it have taken you to place a little text line or pop-up in the Scenery selector that reminds one you have to hit 'enter' to enable the new airport ICAO?

Typical FG core programmers stuff... :roll:

Yeah, they will kill all users with weak computers over time. But at some point, nobody will support XP anymore. Microsoft shur down support for XP what, five years ago?

So is it just me, or is everyone's installation of 2016.1 not having working precipitation?

Well I loaded at Habshiem in the middle of a downpour, according to the "rain" sound and the 'puddles' of water on the ground in ALS. I had to check my rendering settings to see if maybe I forgot to enable precipitation, but it is on. So this will be patched later I take it?

Seems like a lot of people are upset with 2016.1 right now, StuartC's comments about going back to FG 3.4 after struggling with 2016.1's installation bugs were disheartening to read in the other FG forum.

Bugman has posted a merge request to fix precipitation, so, assuming it works, it should be raining again in 2016.2.

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall
