FSFX Packages Issues Statement on ‘Antiviruses False Positives’

Chrome 2018 03 22 23 15 29

As detailed in the post from FSFX Packages, the flight sim community has been shaken up lately with how some developers try to counter piracy of their products. The result of this has been that of some concern to some users on what other developers may do to their PCs and Simulators. Part of this is due to how complex add-ons are now becoming and the measures they’re taking to create fantastic experiences of the user. These complexities do sometimes mean that add-ons may do things that aren’t deemed normal or may inject additional information into the sim behind the scenes. None of these techniques (from trusted developers) are intended to be abusive or cause harm, but to simply get their products to work. With all this attention on ‘Antivirus False Positives’ recently, FSFX Packages wanted to shed some light on what they do to try and be as transparent as possible.

The example of having a moving camera in ChasePlane was a quick way of displaying to the community how FSFX Packages injects something which is sometimes flagged by antiviruses as malware. Of course, it isn’t, but in-light of recent events, it’s understandable why people may be concerned. By blocking this ‘memory injection’ process, it can cause ChasePlane to be limited in its capabilities or even switched off by the antivirus installed.

Whilst developers across the community may be hesitant about sharing their techniques due to competition, FSFX Packages are willing to be more transparent with some of their techniques to build on customer’s trust. This information will soon be included in upcoming user manual edits.

Img 59057a5d964a8

Since FSFX Packages released Chase Plane alpha at the end of last year, the team have worked really hard on ensuring they listen to community feedback and improve the camera system leading up to their version 1.0 release. It’s safe to say that over the months the improvements have been regular and have greatly enhanced the user experience.

One feature that is key to alpha 2 is the community feature, which was previewed back in February. FSFX Packages have today confirmed that on April 30 (today!) @ 2300z, they will begin the process of migrating servers. The servers will be down for around 10-20 minutes. If you plan on using Chase Plane at this time, then simply ensure your product is up to date and you’ve switched it on by 2300z.
