  1. The best option here is to give possibility to: turn off EF HDR (so P3D / PTA takes control over it). This worked fine in previous build, so you had all these dynamically morphing clouds but also had visuals provided by PTA. choose if EF can override P3D / PTA HDR or not. I think EF is a great tool, but we need some time to get a perfect version of it. Let's give developers some time to polish it, I think it's worth waiting a bit for it
  2. R&D Preset v1.8 (they have it for PTA and Tomatoshade).
  3. This is why I prefer PTA settings over EF. I really love dynamic environment provided by EF, but I think I can't get the same visual effects using EF (would be nice to have possibility to set in EF the same values as in PTA/other tools to get base settings that would dynamically change depending on weather conditions). EF: PTA (more "real-world feel"):
  4. Federico told me - EF HDR takes control over PTA HDR (the same for water - EF water shader settings override PTA water ones). That's why we should play with EF exposure key values.
  5. P3Dv4.5 HF1 + PTA R&D Preset v1.8 (NO EF): P3Dv4.5 HF1 + PTA R&D Preset v1.8 + (EF 5.0.2019.0517): Turning EF HDR off doesn't work now (no effect). I really prefer lighting as in the picture above. Previous build was OK for me, had no problems and had possibility to turn off REX HDR (so P3D + PTA HDR settings was used and sim looked like in the picture above even with EF running). It's too bright and looks "flat" now.
  6. I did this: 1) opened EF 2) opened P3D and loaded flight 3) run PTA and applied preset from INI file (this preset requires HDR to be on in P3D so had it on 1.0/0.1/1.0) 4) changed mode to MANUAL in EF and clicked RECOMPILE SHADERS 5) SIM was too bright so I disabled HDR in mini-UI 6) changed EF to auto mode Is EF working correctly using this method? I have my favorite PTA preset looking as usual - my sim is not too bright now, it's just the same like using my PTA preset only. I just expect clouds smooth morphing, sky colors morphing and lighting depending on current weather. Hope my "method" doesn't disable all this amazing stuff EF is doing in background.
  7. Just bought EF (because of update released a couple of minutes ago). I use PTA RD Preset. Please tell me what is correct procedure to use EF with PTA preset? I found this post but just wanna ensure if it's still valid after update: Should I restore ShadersHLSL to original before every flight?
  8. REXEss+ works perfectly now Thank you for your support!

Which version of Flight Simulator installed (including service packs) - FSX Gold Edition (w. Acceleration Pack) 8.) Internet connection active or not - yes, fast connection - 100 Mbps symmetric 9.) Which antivirus software running - ESET NOD32 Antivirus, but always disabled while flying. REX and FSX folders added to excluded folders in antivirus. 10.) Whether or not firewall running - disabled in control panel and services 11.) Whether or not you are utilizing FSUIPC - using full version 12.) If there are any error logs in the REX/ErrorLogs folder, make certain to include in your post - there are no error logs 13.) Is UAC turned OFF in Windows - turned off 14.) What folder is REX installed in - D:\REX 15.) What folder is FSX/P3D installed in C:\FSX 16.) Do you start REX by RIGHT CLICKING the exe file and selecting RUN AS ADMIN EACH time? - yes, I have also "run as admin" selected in REX.exe file properties. 17.) What is your RATE AT WHICH WEATHER CHANGES OVER TIME set to in FS? - none, have it disabled 18.) Did you use a flightplan from REX when experiencing the error(s)? - no, I didn't 19.) Did you make changes to the CONFIGURATION screen or are ALL the settings stock? - yes I did changes (standard mode: REX wx engine enabled, wx data download enabled, ex download every 15 min enabled, weather 3d smoothing enabled, delay 2 min, surface region medium, refresh rate 30 min.) 20.) What are your texture settings within the OPTIONS window? - all enabled excluding DX10 optimized. Textures set to 1024x1024, DXT5 optimized, DXT1 It's really weird, I didn't change anything in my PC configuration. One month ago everything worked fine, I used REXEss+ flying on Vatsim, but today REXEss+ can't download weather data
  10. Hi, I haven't been using REX Essential Plus for the last month. I have the following problem now: REXEss+ doesn't download weather for the airports. I have only "Converting (...)" and "Interpreting (...)" infos. The is no "Downloading (...)" status. Metar_report.xml file has a following content: I have "enable weather download" option enabled. Build 3.2.2013.0415 --- EDIT --- I've Just reinstalled RexEss+ and I still have the same problem. Converting and interpreting data without downloading them.
  11. Kees, weather engine in standard mode works perfect! Temperatures, winds and QNH are the same as in METARs. Great!!
  12. Hi, I don't know if it's an issue, but every time REX Essential+ loads quite different weather than shown in METAR. Eg. I have METAR both in REX weather screen and metar_report.xml file: LOWW 112120Z 32006KT CAVOK 09/06 [A30.03] NOSIG But REX loads 8C and QNH 30.06. LOWW is not very small airport and have its own weather station. Had the same yesterday. There was a fog in EPKK, but I had clear sky in FSX. Temperature and QNH was almost accurate, but not perfect as in METAR, but visibility different. Is it because of interpolation? I have WX+ mode enabled. REX Essential .1028 (no Overdrive installed). These are my weather engine settings: Thanks for any advice!
  13. Have similar issues. 2 hours ago - flight from LOWW to EPWR. Automatic weather injection disabled (EPWR has no ATIS yet, so I don't want the weather change during flight), interpolation slider fully to left side. Metar for EPWR was (in REX ESS): 27013G23KT 9999 FEW025CB SCT043 14/07 QNH 29.88 But I had QNH 29.91, rain, thunderstorm and tailwind when landing on RWY29 in EPWR. I hope your update will fix all these issues I often fly airports that have no ATIS so it's very important to me to get weather exactly like in METAR. All best.
