Phoenix Update - 30.s - 4.0j

I think the Phoenix web servers are slow to begin with... now that there is so many requests for the latest update they are impossible.

I managed to get the update direct from Phoenix's web site, which was still painfully slow.

I uploaded it to my online storage, you all can download it speedy here:

Once you download the file just copy it to your My Documents -> PhoenixRC --> Downloaded Updates.

Then go to Start --> All Programs --> PhoenixRC --> Install Updates Manually. And the program will run its update sequence.

I just wanted to say thanks for upload.

I actually originally downloaded the update from the Phoenix site (as painfully slow as it was), but when I installed the update it did not seem to "take". The V4 splash screen displayed but it still said that it was v3.0.s and it still wanted to update (also loading helicopters would cause the program to crash).

Long story short (too late ) it turns out that the file I download from Phoenix was corrupted. I guess they don't have any kind of file integrity check (they should at least give us the md5 hash). I downloaded your file, installed, and all is good. Thanks again!

Note: Since the download was soooooo slow, I used DownThemAll! to download the update from the Phoenix so that may have had something to do with the file being corrupted.

Version 4.0.j FINAL
New features, Improvements and fixes:

• Increased terrain detail-map quality
• Flying Site > Change menu more compatible and loads faster
• Fixed an issue with Thermal Gliding Competition on 3D flying sites
• Fixed an issue with Anti-aliasing being disabled (may require this option to be re-enabled)
• 3D flying-sites now appear on "recently used" list correctly
So when will they incorporate 3D flying sites for FPV/RP'ers.. or more multirotors?

I would say this update should have remained as a 3.0 or 3.1 at best. They have an odd version numbering system...

No problem... With as much help as I get from this community, a little disk and bandwidth is a drop in the bucket.

Please feel free to share the link.

I dont know what any of you are complaining about. All of the updates download fine. Our computer is around 5 years old and our internet isnt a mega fast one. The only thing i notice is that it says there are updates whenever i open it when the internets on. Do you guys just select update all or only the ones you want?

Do you hear any music along with blank screen? If you hear music I would check video drivers.

The updates are definitely slow. I haven't been on the simulator in a while so there were 27 new aircraft, etc. I selected to update all and it is taking forever and some of the updates fail and have to be tried again.

I'm sure the size of each of the aircraft updates cannot be that big, so the Phoenix servers must be really slow.

The issue is the update server appears to be in the UK. They really need a content mirror in the US.
