At the moment I'm really glad that the offline installers are offeren. Since 2.7.4 most of the addon-ground-handling or catering is not achievable for me from the live updater. I know that there is a node-problem causing this. But without this offline installer I would always get those texture missing failures. Thank you for that solution :)

Hi Umberto!

Firstly, thank you and your team for all the updates to GSX so far! definitely one of my essential addons!
With the recent amount of love being given to the PMDG 737, I was wondering if you had any updates on the custom loader (for lower cargo hold areas when selecting a Cargo variant so it's not just suitcases being loaded) and the new fuel truck for planes with low height?

Thanks again for all your work!

The new Fuel trucks are still in the work, the animation is fairly complex, and we want to do it right.

Take as much time as you need! I'm just happy to know it's still in the works! I just ask to not forget about the non-suitcase cargo loaders for 737 and alike <3

Again, thank you for all the updates!


UPDATE 12/15/23 - Thank you for the cargo loaders! <3

What's fastest way to install GSX Pro? I've spent the last few hours installing now.

Is this normal?

Apologies, if I haven't spent the time scrolling through previous posts.

To update my GSX Pro for MSFS, after installation of Addon Manager from the first page, should I do something more?

I tried downloading from both the online and offline installer. I am now at hour 30 and at 29% with the offline installer. I have tried re-installing, both the launchers, and gsx multiple times. I have tried de-activating the subscription multiple times, and still to no avail. I have been trying for over a week to get it to download and still nothing. I have also tried running the online download for over 24 hour periods and nothing.

If anyone knows a workaround other than an offline installer please let me know. I have had gsx pro working in the past and it took around an hour to download fully. My PC has since then had a few technical issues, but now that I'm back nothing seems to be working.

I tried everything I could see on the support pages and it didn't fix anything for me.

Now this is unlikely, but could it have anything to do with my community folder and addon manager folder being on two separate drives?
My Addon Manager Folder is on my C: drive
My Virtuali folder is on my C: drive
My Community Folder is on my D: drive.

Both of these drives are M.2 NVMe drives.

Again, I'm just bringing this up because I'm brainstorming what my issue could be.

Of course not, the installer is made precisely to allow this, and it's how my system is configured as well ( Addon Manager in its default folder in C: and MSFS Community in E:\MSFS\Community ) so no, that's guaranteed to be working

Great update!

Do you think it would be possible in the future to also have ground handlers crounching to not walk through the fuselage when setting/removing the bypass pin?

That's another thing this update made possible.

I am unable to use the Live Update tool to configure GSX. Was working fine yesterday and I updated GSX to the latest version.

Today, however an update starts, looks like it is updating the Live Update tool itself, it gets to step 6 of 38 and then terminates.

I have used the offline installer, but I want to be able to configure GSX for a new add on airport, but I can't get past this incessant update.

As explained so many times, that's normal, nothing changed, and it always was like this. Each step means you have an FSDT product installed, so it will be updated. So, unless you have ALL FSDT products installed (for MSFS and FSX), you'll never see all 38 steps completed, because it won't try to update something you don't even have.

And, after the last step (of the installed steps), it quits automatically. That's how the Live Update always worked.

I don't know what you mean by "incessant update".

It's not as if the updater starts by itself: it starts when you call it so, each time you call it, it will CHECK for updates for all products you have installed. That doesn't mean it's updating them, but it takes some time to just check.

And in the instructions (top of THIS thread), says that SOME files are supposed to always be downloaded, and it explains why. Again, nothing changed.

That's because you are starting the wrong icon. If you start from the "FSDT Live Update" icon, it will JUST update. If you want to configure something, you must start it with the "FSDT INSTALLER" icon instead.

No matter what I do, I can not get GSX to install. I've done the offline installer, I've fully uninstalled, de activated, and now trying to reinstall. I've let it run for 4 hours now and on fsdreamteam-gsx-pro-v2.9.7.zip.001 - .005

The offline installer, being just 140 MB, it's NOT a "replacement" for the normal installation, which is about 8GB. The one and only reason for the offline installer to exists is, when you SUSPECT your local cloudflare node might not have the latest files (which is extremely unlikely now, since it has been more than a month since  the last update), using the Offline installer will get you at least the latest version of the GSX CODE, which is the most important part, but you still need to start from a normal working full installation.

Such slow speed is not obviously normal, of course. On my 1Gb/s connection, it takes about 5 minutes to install from scratch so, do your own proportion: if you have a 100 mb/s connection, it should take 50 minutes then so no, 4 hours is not normal.

The problem is either:

- Your firewall/antivirus blocking. Be sure to configure them properly

- Some kind of issue with your ISP and your local cLoudflare node. Use a VPN in this case.
