That should be clear to you, it's normal when buying it over steam, that's something ED can't change...

 

BTW the Cockpit shadows are really nice! Love them

Hmm, 2 problems:

 

Cockpit shadows options is grayed out for me

HDR: I can only choose "Off"

Is it something known? (asking before I will try to do the reinstall)

 

Cockpit shadows are ok for me

HDR when turned off gives just sound and full green screen, as I reported in the tech forum.

 

Distance of terrain is still blurry in the distance, can't even pick out targets or runway until close. The effect is like being at the hub of a wheel and when it gets to the tire, everything blurs, 360 degree's around.

 

Tried various drivers etc and setting in the Ati control panel, installed DX2010 again, I thought that the terrain distance had been altered in 1.08 patch.

 

All setting tried here so no good for me, ruins probably the greatest sim.

Odd thing is that Blackshark terrain is fine, only this one giving the problem.

Consider the fact that Steam adds a middleman to patch deployment. Download customers on digitalcombatsimulator.com trade directly with Eagle Dynamics, and ED has complete control over that platform. Steam is Valve's yard and things has to go through channels.

 

Even so it doesnt take half a week to get the patch deployed on steam unless your comms with them are scrambled. And hey i dont see an EA6 Prowler anywhere here....

Yes. Steam procedures... But I read somewhere (Kuky's post IIRC) that you can turn off automatic updates and patch Steam version manually. Don't ask me how - as I said I've heard it from someone else.

Nice patch is out, thanks ED, that's my clue to get back into the virtual pit. I want to do a reinstall this time. Can someone please tell me how to save and transfer my X52 and pedal mappings to the new install ?

is there anyway we steam users can manually patch? next week is a long time lol
Download patch and try patching. Most likely it will be necessary to tweak uninstaller registry record to set the path to installation so the patch installer knows where to install. See mine in the attachment.

 

If you don't want to play with Windows registry just download full distributive from our servers and install it. It even shouldn't ask for activation (in version 1.1.0.7) since protection scheme is exactly the same.

 

EDIT: We won't provide tech support for patching Steam version with our installer since it isn't supposed to work. So if my registry entry won't help, I have nothing to suggest.

If you run Warthog in 32bit Windows - that's normal. In 32bit Windows it won't allow to set high settings from now.

the cause is Windows, not Warthog

Not all is great.

 

With the previous patch I had no problems at all. Very fast loading times always, no ctd, nothing bad really. Highest settings and very smooth framerate at any time.

 

Now it's unplayable. It takes 10-20 seconds to start the application. Any single click in the ME requires you to wait for 10-15 seconds for response. Loading of missions take a couple of minutes now. Even at lowest settings there's massive stuttering and not all textures appear to be rendered. Average 5 fps at best.

 

I reinstalled everything according the list on the download page and it is the exact same still so that's not it.

 

Funny how my experience of this patch seems to differ quite a lot from everyone else. :D

If you run 32bit version - that's normal. 32bit version won't allow to set high settings from now.

 

Is that 'from now on,' as in, 32-bit will never allow High settings, or 'for now,' as in, being worked on?

Is it normal to ask me for activation key after I installed the patch? I do not want to spend one more key for this!
Please proceed with activation. One activation was added to each Warthog serial number (now there are 11 activations total).

 

It's because of a new StarForce version.

Currently Warthog doesn't see light in the end of 32bit tunnel.

 

But if you leave high settings alone as it's advised, 32bit Warthog should be almost as reliable as the 64bit one.

 

EDIT: Good wording. A tunnel. In contrary, 64bit is like the whole atmosphere.

We are the first people who wants to make 32bit Warthog working. But the beast is just too big for a narrow tunnel.

Just installed after 3 hours downloading, everything running smoothly. For me its seems im getting better framerates. Are the runway textures new, if so they look great. Cockpit shadows look a little soft. Whats the best HDR setting, ive set it at soft.
