O'Hare Update 2.0 - new runway 9L/27R
« on: November 23, 2011, 07:22:59 pm »
We are pleased to announce the release of the promised O'Hare update, featuring the new runways 9L/27R.

The update is a FREE download for all customers, and can be obtained by simply download the current full installer, there's no patch available, since most of the files were changed anyway, and the installer will prompt you to remove the current version first.

Other minor enhancements includes cross-wind runway AFCAD, some objects fixes, and better winter textures.

Thank you for this update  :)

All went very well with uninstall and install process, and thank you for fixing that "issue" with writing to dll.xml and exe.xml, that i was so concerned about.  ;)

I haven't flown to and from KORD yet, but so far, it's looks very promising.

So far so good on my end. Did a quick take off and landing and it all seems to look and work just fine. ;)

Anybody know if AES support still works with ORD v2?  Will definitely be installing this, but may wait for an AES update if it doesn't work quite yet.

We haven't changed any jetway/parking position so, it will probably work. In any case, you'll be able to use it with GSX for free, in a few weeks...with GSX we'll do another update to O'Hare, adding all the docking systems.

No arguments with using GSX, in fact I look forward to it.  GSX looks to be pretty nice.  I just need something for the interim.  Anyway, thanks for the reply.

Not bad! It sounds like this update took a whole lotta work by all concerned! However, I expected this "new update" would have included taxiway November going all the along runway 10/28 from taxiway ZH to the intersection of M7 & SA4. I noticed scenery that previously didn't load until I was almost right next to it, now loads quickly and completely. Thank you all. I'm guessing the November taxiway issue will be fixed with yet a future update to KORD?

Yes, we also increased loading ranges for many objects, the original scenery was released in 2008, so we were very conservative with those setting back then.

Yes, we'll surely have another update, since the airport is still far from finished. For the next update we might consider giving it a "KDFW/KLAX"-style ground treatment, but in that case it's likely to be payware.

Let me start off by saying you have done a wonderful job. I have all but two of your sceneries. Sadly though my frame rates in Chicago have dropped from 10-15 to 3-6.

What can I do? All of the other airports I get flyable frame rates.

Thanks in advance.

AMAZING work on the update!!  The only question I have is why wasn't the new air traffic control tower that opened up with the opening of 9L/27R included in the update?  It's still the way it was in the original scenery: under construction.

Best Regards,
Robert

I'm guessing Probably when they do other update or the version with the "KDFW/KLAX"-style ground treatment like Umberto mentioned above.
