Recently we have been seeing widespread Windows 7 adoption by our customers, we are internally moving to it too. However, we have noticed some very strange behavior on Windows 7 with some of our applications.

The most significant problem we have run into is extremely slow startup times for the MAK RTI. This problem is usually obvious; the RTI Assistant will take between 3 and 15 minutes to load.

While its loading you will just see a blank console window. HLA Federates may take an equally long time to load because they are waiting for the RTI.

As many of you may have seen, we just released MAK RTI version 4.0.1. This release fixed two significant problems with MAK RTI version 4.0 on Linux. We recommend all customers who are using version 4.0 move quickly to version 4.0.1 to prevent additional problems. Today I wanted to take a moment and explain in more detail the nature of the problems.

Recently one of our customers contacted us for consulting on how to setup a large federation that would scale up to 1000 federates. Here is how we setup their federation for scaling to large numbers of federates.

Upon first arriving, we took a look at their Federation Object Model (FOM) to get an idea of what types of objects and interactions they were sending through the RTI and how much data was being used.

We’ll be supporting a few new platforms/ compilers in the next release of the VR-Vantage product line.

New compilers are being created all the time. We try to trail“bleeding edge” by a version or two so that we limit our exposure to nasty compiler bugs in the newest releases. We’ll be adding support for MSVC 9 (32 and 64 bit) as well as adding 64 bit linux support (GCC 4.1).

Recently, one of our customers asked us to demonstrate how they could use our VR-Forces and VR-Vantage products to help them sell their homeland security services. They wanted to see a scenario in a train station that showed some sort of emergency situation viewed from multiple cameras, as if you were in a command and control center.
