GEFS is really plugin free!

With the recent 1.2c release, GEFS becomes a truly pure HTML5 application and does not requires any plugin to run. The old Flash based sound engine has been replaced by a Web Audio API implementation. Preferences are now persistence using Local Storage API. Joystick support is made via the Gamepad API. And, of course, with CesiumJS, rendering is done with WebGL.

  1. You've broken this simulator. It lags too much and I can't play. I3-350U 8gb ram and geforce 620m

  2. Sorry to hear. Your issue may be linked to a dual graphic card setup. Please have a look at http://www.gefs-online.com/#performance.

  3. Is there a tutorial explaining how to make the migration to the Cesiumjs? Maybe a video?

    1. Migration is transparent to the users: nothing to do.

    1. This should have been improved with the latest release (new imagery provider). Thanks.
