    Important information: If you are receiving errors after this update in the AEC auto-scan function, please do a search in the ORBX\FTX_VECTOR folder for these files: APT_BISF.inactive APT_BIAR.inactive APT_BINF.inactive APT_BIRK.inactive ABP_BISF.inactive ABP_BIAR.inactive ABP_BINF.inactive ABP_BIRK.inactive If present, delete them and the AEC auto-scan should work. Apologies for the inconvenience but this will be a temporary work around while we work with Pilots to understand why these files are causing the issue.
  2. Hi all, Next update for Vector is now available through FTXC or via the manual download in your account. Please read the following to help you with this update. Vector is a large product with over 78,000 files, therefore that is a lot of file checking FTX Central. You need to be patient and let it scan the files and install. If using the full manual download, you may wish to extract the zip files contained within (there's 193 of them) into a temp folder on your desktop and then use the "I already have a backup" option in FTXC3 and point it to that temp folder. This saves FTXC3 extracting these files and I find it to work well personally. If you are having issues with the download of the update, use the "Clear unfinished Orbx downloads" function and turn off "Use multiple threads for downloads". These options are under Settings in FTXC3. Make sure your sim is not running, have seen many support posts where the sim is running when trying to make changes in FXTC3. You will get error messages if the sim is running. Similarly with Anti-Virus software - make sure the sim folder and FTXC3 process are excluded from real-time scanning. Changes: Fixed an elevated lake at N58.9 W151.9 Fixed an elevated lake at N44.8 W93.2 Added Cape Cod Canal Added Cape M ay Canal Added Chesapeak & Delaware Canal Fixed shorelines along Lake Michigan Fixed Watermass at N44.5 W91.9 Removed watermass at N44.3 W96.8 Removed and fixed several watermasses around N39.5 W104.8 Removed several island connections at N39.2 W76.4 Added missing part of island at N39.2 W76.3 Added missing reservoir at N40.1 W74.2 Added beaches along the coast at N30.3 W87.3 Added missing islands off Norwalk Removed wrong, tiny islands at N21.9 W160.2 Removed streams from river mouth at N30.5 W81.5 Removed double bridges at N36.9 W111.4 Fixed watermass at S32.8 W60.1 Added missing reservoirs at N39.7, W1.0 Added beaches along the coast at N35.0 W76.0 Added missing lake at N41.7 E44.9 Added missing reservoir at N52.6 E7.3 Added missing reservoir at N39.5 W104.8 Added missing island at N26.4 W77.2 Fixed watermass at S6.0 E25.7 Fixed corrupt coastline around Cedar Key New Vector Config version to handle "file exists" errors Updated Data for Bahamas New, much smoother coastline Added about 1,600 beaches New, smoother waterbodies
  3. We won't be recognising eBay purchases of our DVDs, only DVDs that was purchased via one of our authorised re-sellers are going to qualify for the cross grade. This is not a new thing, we have never recognised eBay purchases for Support queries as well.
  4. The final point by Nick is key here: all the DVD products will continue to work in the way that they have always done. Also, I do hope that people are aware that this cross-grade offer is a paid for service covering costs of verifying purchases and assigning a licence to your account.
