I'm a new convert to FS2004. After I reinstalled my addons I'm so much happier than I ever was. I'm almost ready to uninstall FSX, but just one question, will it damage the FS2004 installation if FSX gets uninstalled ?

Yes and besides this is the "FS9" forum, let's leave the "stone age" behind us. :)Jeff

Excuse me NO, I don't want to turn the autogen off!I gave FSX a reasonable shot (twice)--to me, having to tweak a program for days/weeks and still getting marginal performance is absolutely absurd. Fallacy one was "it will run much better" with Vista. Fallacy two was "a DirectX10 video card will make it run much faster". Fallacy three "wait till the SP and you'll see a significant increase in performance". Fallacy four (yet unproven) is FSX adrenaline patch (sometime late this year) will make it DX10 capable and therefore finally increase performance perhaps on par with FS9.Sticking with FS9 for a long time.KemoF15AMD FX-62 dual coreNvidia 7950 GX2 (1GB GPU) overclocked4GB Corsair RAMRaptor 10000rpm HDDell 24"WinXP, Ultimate Terrain US/Europe, FSGenesis 38m, GE Pro, FE, Active Sky 6.5, Real Sky Pro, Squawkbox 3.1, Wilco Airbus Deluxe, PMDG 737, PIC 737, PSS 757, Megahubs, Cloud 9 KDCA, Imagine KCLT, KDTW, Grimshaw's KBOS, Ansari's KLGA
