I have used your site on numerous occassions to downoad files. Unfortunately, I sometime spend more time trying to install the download than I expected. Recently I downloaded what looked like a great 727 sim PS_72F_04.zip. Unfortunatly the gauges don't install and I get an FS error. This should not be a problem. AVSIM editors, instead of bragging about how many files you have on your site, how about spending some time to try the installation and see if it works. I suggest you guys check review and rate your downloads for ease of installation and whether they work before listing on your site. Also in your review note whether installations instructions are included and if the instructions are also in English.:(

This omission is normally rectified almost immediately upon proper communication with the developer.As Aidan recommends, check the forums first then contact the author/developer after it is determined that the installation is NOT the fault of your system setup.Regards,

I didn't want to reply to this as I don't believe that the letter's to the editor is the place for this. I appologise. I have downloaded lots of junk. I just say, oh well and try something else.JimCYWG
