Default Requests for Info - Deleting Shader folders

We want to look at an option to automatically remove shader folders, either by option or by default.

In many cases, users have experienced issues, and deleting these folders has helped.

If you can, when you come across these issues can you please share below.

A description of the issues, and the results of removing the folders.
Your dcs.log before and after (remember your previous log is generally saved as dcs.old)

If we can get a good sample that this does actually help, and is not some sort of placebo, or simply restarting the sim, we can get this looked at.

Please ONLY submit the requested information, all other discussion and such will be removed.

Thanks!
ED Team

Oh dear, I'm afraid I haven't kept around logs but I'm quite certain letting the sim re-do the shaders after an update or driver update has unf$#ed the graphics on multiple occasions.

Alas, it did not fix the Caucasus vineyard bug.

What he said, I know most of you didn't keep previous logs, but let's look to the future, if you come across it again, please share here, and only share that, please and thank you.

I though shaders were compiled by GPU drivers, thus a driver update (or a hardware change) might require the game to recompile the shaders, just in case anything related has changed. It's a safe bet.

Here I'm reporting more a placebo effect.

I updated tonight my nvidia driver (436.15 to 436.30) - I saved first dcs.txt and dcs.log.old (thinking F18 Flir will bug / fxo-metashaders2 topic)

The Flir was bugged after that. Then I tried several things with no success :
1) delete fxo/meta.
2) same plus dcs repair (I use some mods but : 3 sounds + starway with JSGME and Deck Crew in savegames - never had issue so just disable/enable JSGME).
3) rollaback to 436.15 + 1) and 2)

Then, I tried reinstall latest driver only (436.30) without anything else … and it worked. Flir OK (in pictures)

So I think the first 436.30 driver install had a bug, that repeated with 436.15 rollback, but was ok on last 436.30 install (what a mess) - fxo/meta delete process being placebo here for this specific bug.

Joined : 3 folders : 1) dcs + dcs old from 7 sept. 2) dcs from 10 sept but bugged flir. 3) dcs + dcs old from 10 sept but bug solved.
