Come on Chris, how can you make a claim like that just by looking at the screenshot?I posted the same link in another thread and I was more impressed with the variable visibility along the horizon. It looks like precipitation is falling from the clouds reducing visibility, but I can't be sure of that from looking at the screenshot.Let's try to be objective about the new release and not make claims we can't prove. That's how hype gets started.

Soooooooo i'm not crazy after all :-) I am having the same problem when trying to view the pics at gamespot also. Kinda weird becasue I can view them fine on my other box... I have been sitting here for the past 45 minutes thinking something was wrong with my rig and trying to fix it.. LOLAlso some of the graphics on the actual gamespot website are not displaying correctly and have a red X on them...I'm still trying to fix it! Any other ideas?

Hi Chris,I can see the thumbnails, but they all have a little red 'x' in them, and when I click on them, it just opens a bigger frame with a red 'x' in it.As you can see the pictures, it's probably my security settings, rather than a dead link. Well, the site looks like it's cookie- and pop-up heaven, so I guess I'll just steer clear of it...Cheers,Gosta.http://hifi.avsim.net/activesky/images/wxrebeta.jpg

Yeah clouds have hell improved, especially when looking from above. No so from below, it looks a bit 'cartoonish', and I think too many & too small clouds which have all the amlost exactly same bottom altitude. But heck, it's great. :-)Etienne :-wave

I think they have well improved autogen!Oh, and did I mention I dreamed about getting my hands on this sim tonight? lol I know, we're all a bunch of nerds, heheCYA

Do you guys have Kazaa Lite installed? That could be the reason you can't see pics at GameSpot. Kazaa Lite puts a file named "Hosts" (no extention) in your Windows folder that blocks certain advertising-related URLs. Just open the file and delete the "image.com.com" line and save it. That should clear up the problem. Tell me if it does.

ShoverRobot - You are da man! :-beerchugI just made the changes (as per your instructions) to the "hosts" file, saved it and viola! I clicked the link to Gamespot and everything is showing up fine! KaZaA Lite also seems to be functioning AOK as well. Kinda strange that this file from KaZaA Lite would do that to a big site like Gamespot? I wonder what the "image.com.com" line was supposed to do? Before I fixed the "hosts" file not only were the FS9 screenies not showing up but several of the Gamespot core site nav graphics were also red X'ed. I like alot of others find that KaZaA Lite is the only way to go! The regular KaZaA program is loaded with Spyware and Ads galore. Any1 interested in getting KaZaA Lite go here: http://www.kazaalite.comShover, I really appreciate you taking the time to give this excellant advice.Now I can reach right out :-bluegrab and GRAB those FS9 Screenies! :-rotor

Glad to hear it fixed the problem!The GameSpot staff posted about this issue on their forums. Apparently, GS has most of its images hosted on image.com.com. As to why Kazaa Lite blocks that site, I'm not really sure...I also had this problem for a while and didn't know what was going on, but it's amazing what a forum search can turn up. =)
