I'm a big fan of MegaScenery software but I'm totally unimpressed with their Support. Or I should say ... "Non-Support" . Finding access to Support is really difficult and getting a reply from them after you do is totally non-existent. I have Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Washington, Oregon and Wyoming ... not as many as some, but enough for my flying. I fly on 3 systems ... a Haswell, an i5 2500K and an older i7, all overclocked to 4.5 Ghz. So with that out of the way here is my beef. Some of the MegaSceneryEarth tiles are corrupted from the source .... not from CRC downloads .... but corrupted at MegaScenery's site. If a tile is corrupted it does not install and you can verify this by going into Programs and checking the installed list. If you don't do this then your only way of finding out is if by chance you fly over the corrupted area and see the ugly landscape. On my 1st purchase I had a corrupted tile and I was able to get ahold of a Megascenery engineer (I think) who was very polite and helpful and promised to fix on their end. He did not, and after much screaming and hollering on my part (and threatening) they sent me the previously corrupted tile on a DVD by mail. Ok ... all is well and forgiven. So I proceeded with purchases ... and I love the effect and visual at altitude. Then I found corruption in my Oregon purchase. I would get a CTD on all 3 systems about 30 minutes out of LaGrande going to Bend, Or. All my attempts to contact them were met with silence. Even my phone calls went unanswered. So I wrote them off and stopped considering any further purchases. Now ... a few days ago I found a missing tile in my Idaho scenery ... #32. Ok .... I went back to my original email and downloaded #32 no less than a dozen times because each attempt to extract resulted in an error message indicating corruption. I could live with this if MegaSceneryEarth would just say ... "Ok, thanks for letting us know. We will fix that within 48 hours". But instead they just ignore me like ... "Who cares??" So, unless they get their act together I will never make another purchase from MegaSceneryEarth.
UPDATE Sept 15th, 2014
This problem with Oregon MegaSceneryEarth is now solved. Dean, PC Aaviator Manager, sent me a complete DVD disc set of Oregon which I promptly reinstalled and which fixed the Fatal Error I kept getting between Bend and Eugene. Much appreciated Dean of your working with me to make sure I had a smooth experience with MegaSceneryEarth. And happy flying of course .......
