W Bard I can assure you that the ones who enjoy reading and anticipate the improvements and features of V2 far out number those who mumble and complain. Look forward to the next blog update!

As you can see above, any post referencing any sidestepping or inferring anyone is not abiding by the EULA or using Prepar3D in ways it is not licensed to be used will not be tolerated. Those who have, this is a final warning.



We sincerely enjoyed the discussions we had here, and enjoyed answering a lot of your questions, but we will be going very dutifully back to work on v2 now.



Anyone mentioning feeling deceived or that we're not listening or sampling users for feedback, etc, please wait until you get the final product if you choose to buy it to pass judgement. We had very valid business reasons for doing our new fullscreen modes, and in the process of doing it fixed around 17 issues that were reported by users on this very forum.



This is a small part of the reason we don't comment publicly on features or releases until they are actually released, as v2 is still in development and comments and features may change.




Received loud and clear, on with the show...

Maybe Im too late to ask a question...but Beau, this comment scares me as I prefer multi-channel set-ups:



Quote:

We currently do not plan to support exclusive full screen. If we did ever bring it back, it would be limited to a single monitor until such time as the operating systems natively support a multi-monitor full screen mode that works.




As I often set-up 180+ Visuals with multiple computers (ie. one view per machine), I use the "old fashioned" full screen mode,

do you mean its gone now in v2.0?



Regards,



Nat Crea

Thats how I understood it.



But they have a mode that looks exactly the same and has only a 6% speed penalty.



So it should not really affect you much.

Given the other optimizations I wouldn't think 6% performance reduction will be very noticeable.

I find very good the way the team has been leading the development of version 2.0.

Thank P3D team, I'm anxious for V 2.0

1-The effect of viewing thermal (hot gas turbine, an example) was included in P3D V2.0?

2 - DX11 offers more ease for this kind of effect?



Thank you.

We have a new way of doing full screen. The old way was buggy, and had lots of bugs we simply could not fix without creating a new way. We've created a new mode, with more customization, that allows many more of our customers to be successful in their training setups.



It does not have a 6% speed penalty. Please let's set the record straight, I'll take a minute to explain it a little bit.



In the absolute worst case, which none of you would be likely to ever hit, it could possibly be a maximum 6% speed penalty. In most cases, you won't be able to notice it. In many of our cases, we see a marked improvement in customers and solutions with multiple windows and monitors in fullscreen. However even if you fell into the small case that would lose some performance from full screen, there are many other things we've done which more than make up for that small loss.
