Microsoft Game Studios FS2004 Official Site Archives

Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow Flight Simmers:I hope that someone/anyone out there can help me. I am still using Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century Of Flight. I have no intention of upgrading any time soon to Microsoft Flight Simulator X because my PC's specifications won't handle the software and I'm not buying a new computer. Besides, I've spent nearly five years builing up a large collection of freeware and commercial addons for FS2004 and I'm not going to waste time and money starting now all over again with expensive FSX upgrades. I am writing concerning The Microsoft Game Studios Flight Simulator 2004: A Century Of Flight Official Site. I am hoping that some hardcore FS2004 fan had the foresight and brains to perhaps download and save all of the webpages themselves (either as single archive *.mht webpage files or *.mhtml webpage document files) along with any and all accompanying files, screenshots, media, tools, utilities, FS2004 SDKs, hints, tips and everything else FS2004 contained within the seemingly now defunct FS2004 official site. The Microsoft Game Studios Flight Simulator 2004: A Century Of Flight Official Site that I am writing about was formerly located at the following URL: http://www.microsoft.com/games/flightsimulator This offical FS2004 website could be launched from a link at the following URL:http://www.microsoft.com/games/pc/flightsimulator.aspxMicrosoft has apparently closed down the official FS2004 site and replaced it with the Microsoft Flight Simulator Insider site which disappointingly deals only with Microsoft Flight Simulator X which I'm not interested in. Microsoft seems only too quick to move on exclusively to the next Microsoft Flight Simulator version knowing that many Microsoft Flight Simulator enthusiasts still use FS2004 because of the same reasons I stated above. Apart from an online technical support archives, nothing from any previous Microsoft Flight Simulator offical site is thoughtfully archived or left accessible "on the side" so to speak by Microsoft Corporation for customer use. I have e-mailed Microsoft Game Studios about this numerous times to request help and I never get a response. So did anyone out there download and save all of the webpages themselves that dealt with everything FS2004, accompanying files, screenshots, media, tools, utilities, FS2004 SDKs, hints, tips and everything else FS2004 from its seemingly now defunct official site at the following URL: http://www.microsoft.com/games/flightsimulator Webpages can be saved as either single archive *.mht webpage files or *.mhtml webpage document files to a PC. An FS2004 flightsimmer out there might have saved/downloaded to his or her PC all or most of the FS2004 official site webpages along with all of the accompanying files, screenshots, media, tools, utilities, FS2004 SDKs, hints, tips, etc. If you are one of these people, please e-mail me at richarpes@aol.com or leave a reply at this spot here in the forum. From there, I would like to make an arrangement for me to acquire this material either on a CD-ROM through the mail or through a *.zip file download. Please write soon.Thank you very much and happy flying.Sinderely,Richard Sharpe

The SDK's are still available here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555857The v9.1 update is here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=enMost anything else seems to be available from a search of the Microsoft web-site http://search.microsoft.com/results.aspx?m...=en-US&q=fs2004That'll give you the bulk of the required software, I'm sure most tips and tweaks will have been re-iterated in the various forums.
