I am TIRED of flightsim.com!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Alright I am starting to get really upset here with flightsim.com I CAN NEVER GET IN. I have been setting here for a damn 25 MINUTES! trying to get in and all the "nodes" are busy. Its REALLY starting to ##### me off. Sorry for my crude language but this has been going on for a while. Is there aNYTHING we can do to get flightsim.com to allow more people in. I haved tried emailing them and they come back with a sorry answer saying "too bad, we do what we can". YEA RIGHT! I mean flightsim.com has great planes, files, etc but its such a pain to try and get into! I am not going to pay for access to freeware add-ons. Anyone else seem to have this problem with flightsim.com? Also, has anyone seen a Delta ATR42/72 they can get me? :0)

I haven't been able to get into flightsim.com for months, so I don't bother these days, I just pop in sometimes to see the DF forum.

I have to second Denver Dave. Between Avsim and Simviation, I have found everything I need. :-wave Ron from behind the Cheddar Curtain. :-wave.

Hi, Ron... Cool to see you here.Justin, just want to make sure you are aware of the "F5" trick. When the "all nodes are busy" message appears, simply press the F5 key repeatedly until you get in. This method usually gets me in within a minute or two, though I try to avoid downloading from there. It is agonizingly slow on my DSL line, and... well Avsim is my home. At least until they banish me. :-lol Good luck,

I dont waste my time with Flightsim.com either. The only way the site is in any way of use is if you have a membership. I cant believe the number of people that support the idea of paying for freeware. Even more surprising is that so many freeware developers support the site as well. Avsim has as much bandwitdth costs as FS.com and yet they remain free. I would be willing to bet FS.com is making a nice profit off their big freeware library. Thanks to Avsim for running such a great site and keeping it the way it should be...Free.mb505

Yes: F5 and then ENTER, over and over and then within 2 minutes you're in. It has NEVER failed for me in about a hundred times I've accessed flightsim.com files in the last month, including today a few minutes ago, yesterday, etc. Day or night.== WHK ==

>I mean flightsim.com has great planes, files, etc but its such a >pain to try and get into! I am not going to pay for access to >freeware add-ons. I don't see it as paying for access to freeware. Hosting the site is not free, someone's paying for it. How much would it cost the freeware author to host his files on his own web site ???When you download files freely, someone, somewhere is paying for it.Put this in the proper perspective, if access to the site is so important to you that you're getting 'this' upset over it, then you really should consider paying for uninhibited access.Regards.Ernie.

I just registered the money to have ready access. Didntparticularly like to, but its important to support thesehigh bandwidth sites (Avsim.com too!). It costs a frigginmint to run a download site and I got tired of being lockedout by node limits.Eric

Justin - I've heard others complain about trouble getting in to flightsim.com, but I don't remember ever having a problem. I check their main page and forum almost daily (I have both bookmarked). You might try temporarily turning off your internet security program...if it is blocking cookies, or whatever it does, sometimes that can cause a problem. For example, I have to disable my security program in order to download any files from avsim or flightsim. Just a thought. SteveJ.

And, I think that sums up the situation nicely.As Uwe said earlier, both sites provide a service, both sites provide more or less the same amount of files daily (don't believe us? compare the stats for yourself!), and both sites have a readership. :)This really is a dead horse, flogged _beyond_ death.--M
