Version 4.0

There is a new version of DX10 Scenery Fixer, Version 4.0.

The biggest change is that there is no longer a legacy slider….

The fixer can now distinguish aircraft and scenery and use different rules for the two which solves a lot of issues. I believe that all legacy aircraft (built with FS8 SDK) will display exactly the same as in DX9 – with the single exception of any 8 bit textures which require separate conversion to DXT1. You should find that legacy scenery display better as well. The night lighting should be identical to DX9 and much brighter than before. All the Aerosoft, Taxi2Gate, UK2000 airport sceneries that I have examined exactly the same as in DX9 ( with the exceptions of a few AES lite buses and trains).

The release also has improved shadows and better and more reliable effect fixes and numerous fog fixes for Orbx airports.

I don't use FSX that much. But I am very annoyed when it doesn't work properly!

      If you purchased from fastspring then download using the download url as normal. If you purchased from the flight sim store then they seem to be closing down and are not supplying updates post 3.4. The only way for FSS customers to get 3.5 or 4.0 is via cloud shadows which patches FSS 3.4 as necessary. But not that the cloud shadows version that patches to 4.0 will only be released next week.

    Excited to try a new version I went to  FlightSim Store but I am still getting 3.4 version do you know when  FlightSim Store will have the update so I don’t lose too many downloads by clicking on checking?

    best

      They seem to be having a liquidation sale and don’t respond to emails so I doubt that they will ever provide it. The only way for flight sim store customers to get updates seems to now be via cloud shadows as that will patch the fixer to the latest version. I will be releasing cloud shadows 1.12 which patches the fixer to 4.0 next week.
