Discovery Wings Flight Sim Ready

Recommended Posts

I have a VCD of JUST the Flight Simulator 2004 stuff from Discovery Channel. It's about 15 Minutes Long and about 150Megs File Size.Anyone want to host the file on their server?? I can upload it to you.I also have a full DVD compliant MPEG2 ready to go on DVD with Chapters of the Whole Thing as well as a FULL VCD to put on CD if anyone wants it. Let me know ideas to get it to the rest of the community who don't have Discovery Wings.

Mark, I sent you an email on where you want me to upload the file. Or I can give you a link to download from my personal email server.

I also have a 10 mins video of just the flight sim part and it's 100mb in Windows Media format (1500kb/s) if anyone wants to upload it to a server for streaming let me know. Here's a capture to show the quality of the video.http://forums.avsim.com/user_files/23790.jpgSaludos :-waveGerardo Nava"Venezolano all the way"[p]"Flying isn't dangerous.

Hey guys, FYI, D.Wings, via DirecTV, is rerunning the show - at least they did last night. I missed the 1st part at 8, but caught the entire broadcast @ 11...... If I recall, D.Wings usually runs the same shows repeatedly over time - so it may be on for awhile, to view "legally". Check your listings - maybe visit a sports bar and ask for Discovery ! I enjoyed parts of the show, but much information was common knowledge to those of us that read about simulators - military, commercial, or "game" based. The COF presentation was limited in scope / depth, and not as impressive (to me) as the other simulator information presented. We have had more details shared by the beta crew, than was on last night.Best part of show, for me, was to see the MS team working on FS, and the introductions to the designers actually responsible for various aspects of the software. It was also good to see Bruce Williams !PS: I still "hate it", when FS is called a "game"........ LOL !...... And, I can't wait to see someone post their system specs., with "500" P4 chips - equivilant to what the show says top Military sims use.... RonKORL

HiSaw it too and was`nt impressed.One thing was the stuttering in spotplane though.I can`t believe MS allowed that to happen.

I certainly dont hope it stutters in spotview, that will be a major showstopper for me, as that is my favourite view, but this is not the first i hear about this, i really hope this only happens on lower end machines.OHN
