Can I roll back. Updating to 11.30 has been disasterous. now since Flyinside is no longer supporting past 11.26 I cannot use my Vive headset. and the only way to get good Helicopter training is to go VR.

X-Plane help! This is urgent! I have a check ride coming up.

to explain my question. I updated to 11.30 then I started getting the "problem processing a GLSL pixel shader" error. I can hear the program running but no video. After reviewing the blogs I found that I needed to update FLYINSIDE. I did so but their website says they are no longer supporting Xplane for VIVE past  version 11.26. Now I have no way of using my VIVE with XPlane. So the only solution I see is to go back to 11.26. And before you ask, No I didn't make a copy before upgrading.

Yes, backups are the way to ensure you can go back. Maybe LR should implement a "version picker" in their installer to allow going back. But naturally they do not want to keep an archive of oldversions, I'm afarid.

I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK, but as I understand it, you will no longer be able to download X-Plane 11.25 from LR, as only 11.30 is now available.

If however you managed to save a copy of your entire X-Plane 11.25 file structure on your PC before updating to 11.30, then you could always roll back to 11.25 by swapping one for the other.

Sorry my friend, I've not tried VR yet so know little about it, but Bambino Games have a stack of videos on YouTube that you may want to search through. 

They are into VR and also use Flyinside.  The link is at
