Ummm, what happened to the Phil Taylor thread??

Recommended Posts

Can't find this thread that had like 25 pages any more. Did it get deleted for some reason? Hopefully he hasn't flown the coop from the less tactful of the forum!

Hmmm.. well, unless I fat fingered something, it was here earlier this morning. I can't find Phil's post either.

The above two fixes both work, but searching for the original post (linked on P-12C Pilot's blog) brings up this message:"The page you requested cannot be displayed. Missing Topic"Pietro.

Looks like a good time to start a conspiracy theory involving ACES, Phil, TDragger and the subversion of all things FSX ;)

Well the google cache thing doesn't seem to retrieve the later posts in that thread including Mike T's very eloquent contribution. Bruceb

I guess the same thing happened with some other threads in "Flying Clubs" theme. I just went there to check if there are any news on NE Flying Club, and saw several threads absent. Tom? Anyone?

I agree. The thread had a lot of serious factual information and serious proposals being discussed. In addition to the thorough message Phil Taylor posted, and the responses and questions it generated, tdragger proposed doing away with sliders, for example, and I posted a rebuttal.Surely you keep a back-up, Tom, and can restore this thread.This one was a keeper. Please do what you can to restore it.-Seadog

Well! Lets have a copy here...till the original thread is found.Quote:------------------------------------------------------------------------Hi, Let me introduce myself. I am Phil Taylor and I am Senior PM for Graphics and Terrain in Aces Studio. I joined Aces during the end-game of FSX and am now involved in all the studio projects moving forward.I am seeing a lot of threads and a lot of thrashing on this forum, and I thought I would try to address some of the discussions and draw a line in the sand. One big topic of discussion is performance (FPS) and DX10.DX10 by itself isn

Thanks Manny for reposting that. It did have a claiming effect on the board. To now that Aces was still working on improving FSX.

All very interresting, and nice to read the google cache, http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache:Z-p3t...nl&ct=clnk&cd=1Some thoughts of me, still reluctant to buy it, my humble PC will not give a flyable expirience are:- Can the Aces team install FSX on Bill Gates PC and let him fly for 10 minutes and tell us what he thinks? Or on Steve's? One of them does know reality..- What does Aces members nephews think of it? besides the wow factor?and bla bla.. one can dream up a lot of these questions.But.. if MS puts a 747 in it, then it needs to be able to land at KJFK, playable on an tad more than average computer.Otherwise, if the fps hit is too much, dont include it.JohanA LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION, AND A LITTLE MORE ACTION PLEASE

Wow, just how does a massive 25 page thread vanish into thin air like that? :-spacecraft That thread was one of the most valuable that I have ever read here. Phil's and Tdragger's input held a wealth of information, and it would be great loss if it somehow the thread was not recovered.

Unless one of the mods deleted it (which I doubt), I suspect the forum software / database tripped over some internal limit. Does anyone know if bigger threads than that have survived - it was definitely getting very large before its untimely demise.

Yesterday morning around 0900 Eastern I was something to the effect of cannot connect to database, make sure all database parameters are correct in dcsetup.php.

Probably an error in the forum system caused the thread to disappear, which might have something to do with the fact that the thread had one of the largest number of replies in one thread in the Avsim Forums that I've ever seen.In any case, I didn't delete it.Regards,
