  1. Well done, Stewart And at my local airport
  2. Many thanks for all of the work re-creating AEC Now that I have run the new AEC, is it OK to run the install of these airports?
  3. I expect to stay with a flat/curved screen with my new rig. At least for the foreseeable future. But as HMDs improve, there will probably come a time when I succumb to the urge to convert. I expect this to be after I have justified the expense and depreciation of a new 2D screen.
  4. Atlas is really rather good.
  5. See me at http://flightdiary.net/mcdonar
  6. I am also of the view that staying up to date with technology is the least troublesome way forward overall.

    Many thanks for all of your efforts to provide us with such an excellent service.
  8. I believe that there is some sort of partnership between Orbx Simulation Systems and Pilot's Software. Yet Pilot's Software do not have a forum I which the developer and its customers interact. This means that the Orbx forums then get used for this interactions. Could someone in Orbx request that Pilot's Software start a forum so that we can have meaningful discussions with Stefan?
  9. Many thanks for the information. Looking forward to installing my copy.
  10. Hi jjaycee1, I have the DVDs on order also. Are your instructions (above) contained in the installation manual, or have you had to learn how to achieve the results through trial and error?

    Hi Dominique, I believe that programmatic files require at least recompilation to be able to co-exist with a 64-bit P3D. Data files probably will not. So scenery files can probably remain unchanged. Even if they cannot, a recompilation with a 64-bit version of the ADE may be sufficient in many cases. A 64-bit P3D will presumably be stored in a Program Files directory rather than the existing Program Files (x86) directory. So the minimum required would be for programs in the Program Files directory to concatenate these two file types in order to access the existing data files. I agree that 'smoothness' will always remain a challenge for the simulator developers because all try 'to push the envelope' of capabilities.

    Well said, Dominique! There will certainly be some roughness to the conversion to 64-bit but I am sure that P3Dv4 will contain many, many improvements, most of which we have not yet imagined. After all, LM have been working on the new version for a long time, and converting to 64-bit will have been only one of many challenges with the new facilities available.
  13. Hi Mike, Thanks for clarification. I am sticking with the 2010 version because the upgrade is way too expensive.
  14. Will Orbx offer the new Pilots software for download via FTXCentral eventually?
  15. I bought the original FS Global 2010 from FSS. Now when I try to upgrade I will be charged the full $99 instead of the advertised $54. Perhaps I can only get the reduction if I order direct from Pilots? In any case, the reduced price is still over my head and I am pretty happy with what I have already So I shall be awaiting a much better offer.
