Re: XPlane 11 running slow after Pilot Edge Connect

Hello friends, and a happy and better new year to you all...

I found that I must have Metal active to run PilotEdge where there might be more than one or two drone aircraft within visual range. After an eternity (it has seemed) of experiencing intermittent fps drops from ±60 to 1 or 2 fps, and torturing myself looking for overbearing CSLs or plugin conflicts, checking "Use Metal Driver for Faster Rendering" cleared the problem up.

Sadly, using Metal forecloses on my using SkyMAXX Pro for clouds, but them's the breaks. Happy to have PilotEdge working predictably again. (Nothing like going to 2 fps on short final after a two-hour flight!)

I don't know if it's just an issue with my lower-end hardware, but it might help to warn people up front of this little possibility?
