Anyone gotten any of the 10.000 hours rewards in FSX?

 

If you did fly FSX as a full time job it would take you 4-5 years just getting one of these rewards. Seems to me this would be impossible for most simmers since they reinstall FSX ever so often, not to mention the continued upgrading of harware in a futile search for the ultimate smoothness... :)

Computer crashes wouldn't allow me....... I just lost 3500 hours last week and 3 years back I lost 2000+ my bad...... I should of made a frequent backup for the record but I always forget

 

I was fighting to get the 1000 hours of night flights and 5000 hours over all :)

I keep my logbook on a spreadsheet, too many horror stories of FSX crashing and wiping out the FSX logbook.

I keep regular backups of my log book. Just make a copy of the Logbook.BIN file in My Documents/Flight Simulator X files. You might want to occasionally back up GrantedRewards.bin in the C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX folder.

There's a log book?

 

It's under "Pilot Records" on the main FSX screen.

I made it to 8400 hours and FSX had to be reinstalled -_-

This should be the dictionary definition of "Gutted"

Indeed, especially if it was sailplaine hours ;) 8400 hours. I don't think I've got that many combined since fireing up my first sim, Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer, 25 years ago...

 

I feel yor pain Chris! :)

You can copy your rewards and log and put them elsewhere before doing a reinstall. Did it few months ago and maintained my records which i was pleased about. But no i have'nt reach 10.000hrs. Not even near.


Kind Regards

Simon.

Yep, but I learned that too late... :) And I never bothered to do so since I thought FSX would have been replaced by FS11 a couple of years ago allready.

Thanks for feeling me I guess? Lol. I had worked really hard for all those hours, too bad I never saved the logbook :sad: Oh well

I do not use the default log book. Some of my flights are "fun" flights when I don't have the time for full realism (in non-PMDG aircraft of course). A good log book becomes too difficult to maintain when you have to end flights due to computer issues or reinstallation issues.

When I put Windows 8 on my laptop and instilled FSX, I found that my logbook had been updated and I could go back as far a 2007 and this on a clean drive.

Noooo way Mark...... You must have had the logbook stored on a remote drive / cloud drive or something else...

What your saying is physically impossible isn't it?

 

FSX Doesn't have any sort of login or user account system, unless your using some sort of logbook add on that saves it elsewhere?

 

Oh, and don't you have a happy picture, one with you smiling maybe?

No offence mate, you look really unhappy in your avatar pic...
