You might check out this thread:http://forums.projectai.com/htdocs/dcforum...umID2/1194.htmlSome interesting (and significant) "fubars" over at KORD are pointed out by John Thomas. Looks like they put their attention on FSNAT and slopped around the edges.Personally, I can't muster up $40 "just" for O'Hare (I already own the other 3 in SimFlyers scenery). Why they chose to model 3 airports already modelled by their leading competitor, I do not know. I'm sure they'll thank you for your comprehension, however ;-)J

I've yet to see anyone comment on the 737 included - how is it? The new VC technology is supposed to be revolutionary - does it work well? How is the flight modeling and FMC??

Hello,Just 2 words to say that we have been responding to all threads related to technical issues, FSNAT, compatibilties... on several forums related to Airport 2002.However, we would not want to comment on "how good" or bad "this detail looks like" or come with pictures to show how accurate/inaccurate some details are represented.We leave this to each person judgment.Unless you would like see us writing our own review ;-)Michael RenousWilco Publishinghttp://www.wilcopub.com

Post #10 contains J.T.'s screenshots and a critical review of the errors in the scenery.In fairness, however, the only comments I've seen w/ regard to A2K2 pertains to KORD. I haven't heard much on the other airports, especially the European airports (which I would expect to be more accurate in their depection w/ Wilco being based in Europe). The few comments I've seen on the 737 seem to indicate that it's some nifty eye candy but nothing that will whet the hard-core simmer's appetite for realism.I'm sure you'll see more formal reviews in the coming week. Personally, I prefer the "other" sites' reviews as I feel AVSIM's reviewers are often too "soft" or "guarded" on pointing out product shortcomings in their reviews.J

Hi, I got a copy of wilco airport 2002.I've two problems:The first problem is that when I'm in approach to one of the seven wilco airport, my pc hangs for about 30 seconds.After that, the simulation continues to run without problem.The second problem is with 737 virtual cockpit: I like the new concept of piloting the aircraft in 3d virtual cockpit without switching to 2d panels, but when I tried the wilco 737, I had many difficulties in piloting it, because when I turned to right or to left with my joystick, also the visual of the camera changed, creating difficulty in handling the airplane.Is it possible to resolve these problems ?Andreapc: Asus motherboard, CPU AMD Athlon XP 1500+, 512mb ram 266mhz DDR,matrox G400 Max video card, Force Feedback 2 joystick.
