    Both the ORBX and OZx forums are giving me the same message. Wanting me to download something.


    Cheers

    Orbx Download

    I also get an instant download whenever I have tried either the FTX website or the Orbx Forums. I have deleted and not opened the downloaded files.

    All of the above happening for several days now - the OZx site has virtually "sent me to Coventry" since Feb 2016 (read, download but no posting) - the ORBX site very slow to load, if accessible, then posts taking ages to be accepted and then duplicated - now both sites and FTX Central want to download a php.file.

    I think the forum software on both sites was always seriously flawed since the last "upgrade" and now it seems they have been "hacked" sadly. A great shame.

    I get a pop up asking what program will I use to open. I see now they are "Under maintenance , moving site " . I feel they have been attacked too , maybe.

    My bookmark link wants me to download a php file called index.
    Rats - why won't anything work properly first time?

    Thanks for the heads up everyone. Personally, I wouldn't download or open up anything from the
    Orbx site until the dust clears.

    I did go into FTX Central, and before it could download anything (there was an alert at the top saying
    there was an up date for FTX Central to be downloaded), I activated FTX Global in Hybrid mode,
    and quickly got out again.

    The FTX Global Hybrid mode should let me fly in any Orbx area with only a slight loss of autogen,
    and not have to go back into FTX Central to change anything.

    I guess we now wait for further announcements. Hopefully everything will be fixed by tomorrow.

    Thanks - Rob

    Thats how it's supposed to be after the new unified update. No more switching reagions if you did the "migration" which FTX Central wants you to do afterwards.
    EDIT: Ok maybe I missread your statement. In FTX Central you should still be able to see the installed regions and airports. There is just no "activate" button anymore.

    Strange - I just tried again and get:
    Internal Server Error

    I got this same message on Sunday David; I left it for a while and it eventually sorted itself out.
    Just looked again now, and have the '500 Internal Server Error' message again!
    Seems like they've still got troubles!

    I was on OrbX's site an hour ago with no problems, but am not confronted with the server error as well They must still be having problems.

    Still working here.

    It has updated FTX Central 2 so that all regions are active all the time, only time you need to use it is when you add new scenery files.

    I think you can also use it for some automatic updates and to check if any of your add-ons require an updated download as well. I love the unified system.

    They haven't been hacked. They're migrating the servers. It's been going on since Friday, off and on.

    Thanks for pointing that out Sundog, I also like this unified system.

    If thay are doing internal reorganisation of their website, perhaps they could have mentioned it elsewhere, e.g. on their Facebook page?
    Windows 8.1 64 bit
    P3D v3.4
    P3D v4.5
    FSX-SE
    X-Plane 11

    Thanks for the 'heads-up' Sue!
    I have to agree with 'thefrog'; some prior warning of pending changes and interruption of normal service would have been quite helpful!
    Anyhow, it'll be great to see them back up to full speed!

    Here's what the Orbx CEO has to say on the ORBX FTX forum:-
    [QUOTE]We're still using Jay's hosting infrastructure and the operations centre is migrating a bunch of their servers. Expect more outages through this week.

    We will be moving to our own hosting providers soon as well as announcing other initiatives later this month.

    Apologies for the interruption to our service.[QUOTE]
