Last month I tried out the FBW mod for the A320neo after the USA update which completely broke the default A320neo. I had the mod for a week and then deleted it. I decided to just wait and hope for a fix to the default A320 in the latest sim update on December 22nd. While the AP is fixed now, something that is still broken from the USA update is that it feels very underpowered and takes FOREVER to climb to cruising altitude which is a big issue.
I’m tempted to try the mod again, but I heard that after last week’s update it was broke. So, I’m simply wondering has the mod been fixed since last week’s sim update and how is it working? There’s probably already a topic on here about it, but I couldn’t find anything to answer my question. Thanks.
Always update from the installer, it takes a few seconds and you can do it before the flight, every two days, whenever you want etc.
I always use the last dev version to be up-to-date.
It works perfectly I just did a couple of flights in Vatsim today without any issues.
The first one points to the latest dev version itself.
The second one lets you download the “installer”. There, you can chose which version (Edit: stable or dev branch) you want to install, tells you if the version you installed is outdated and let’s you download the current version. Make sure to select “FBW CDN” from the server dropdown list (top menu bar). Downloads over the default option (FBW Github) will likely be very slow).
Best workflow in my opinion would be to start the installer prior to starting the sim to check for a newer version of the mod.
So I actually tried this the last time I had the mod installed and it didn’t really help much. I might have gained a couple FPS back. Do you know of any other possible solutions other than lowering graphics settings?
Yeapp… I am using the Custom version of the FBW mod, and I do download and install the mod practically every day. At least, whenever I want to start the sim. I go to the github page and download the custom FBW mod and install it again.
Then the next time I want to fly, I do the same thing again. This is because the Custom and Dev version is updated at least once or up to 3x a day. So I always download this every day so I can get the latest version available.
The Stable version for me is updated too far in between. It’s nice for someone who wants stability, but even so if you are using the stable version. Always check for a new version whenever Asobo updates the sim in a major patch update. Chances are it will break the current stable version and FBW team would need to update the stable version with a hot patch to make it compatible.
This is why I like using the custom version. There’s always something new in there to keep me interested and they’re always up to date with any compatibility.
About the FPS. Maybe you can try installing this Cockpit Texture mod. Since it replaces the FBW mod cockpit texture, maybe it would help your FPS. Plus, you get to choose different colour scheme.
