Well, guys, after crawling out of bed this morning and a good bloody mary I limped over to the computer and fired up FSX. All I can say is please, please, DO NOT modify FSX while mixing scotch and wheatberry beer. My tongue feels like the mojave desert with an orangish tan corduroy texture, the whites of my eyes resemble my new scotland textures and I can't find my joystick! On top of that, I must have accidently run my family photos through that batch file conversion thing and I now have an winged opposum for a screen saver in place of the wonderful beech 18 that used to be there. My appologies to all others who may have followed the advice of this sim sinner!I'm going to take a nap now....thanks!

:-lol Man, make me laugh or what. Excellent !I learn't along time ago (however I continue to do it for some dumb reason) not to try and fix ANYTHING on the pc or game when your drinkin'. You make think it look better and runs faster at about 2:00am, but when you wake up - jeese that sound familiar.Garett

US of A! I think it's made by Henry Wienhardt (SP) - anyway, I'm not sure as I can't read the label today - lost my glasses as well as my joystick! Well, since I had to drag the darn bottle out anyway, guess I'll drink it!

"Your story has validity, as long as it is the texture of Laphroig, which is such a gentle malt.What tartan?"Laphroig? Welll - don't look now - it's more like a picnic table cloth kinda checker board pattern. Makes me dizzy seeing how it conforms to the rolling hills. Tartan? What tartan?

I found my joystick - it was in the fridge next to the wheatberry beer! Shoulda known, that's the second time that's happened! Now I can't locate my Battlefield 2 disk! Oh, yeah, does anybody know if a slice of bologna will cause long term damage to a CD drive? There wasn't any mayo on it (even though I could swear I put mayo on my sandwich last night).

What's really really funny, is that I just completed Glasgow to Zurich, in real dreadful weather, and I had a terrific flight!I took a video, but do not know how to post it.FsFx with AS6, good frame rates, crash detection on, default 737 and all with a paltry P2.4 1GB and Nvidia 5500.As I broke through bad puke making weather, the sun rose, and it was beautiful. Alps and whole approach to Zurich breathtaking. Sliders in the middle, just as Fs9 was.It is funny, for me, this FSFX, works! I am sober!

Since this has turned to more serious matters: FSX on my machine has great frame rates if I fly from my home airport in Gleneden Beach (S45)on the Oregon coast. I can have a truly wonderful flight experience with all sliders to the right and 4/8 cloud coverage (cumulus). The flight dynamics are much more real than FS9. The autogen makes the forests more life-like and populates the world for a really great experience. But let me start into the valley on approach to KHMO Hillsboro and the stutters start. So I start dumbing down the autogen and complexity settings. By the time I get to Hillsboro autogen must be on sparse and scenery complexity on medium. What I hate, is that if you put scenery complexity on sparse there are no airport buildings shown at small rural airports where the density is light to begin with.Let me try to approach PDX and the stutters (little micro stutters) become constant and then I get these long duration pauses - and that's on sparse settings for autogen and scenery complexity. This sim has so much to offer it is a shame that it just can't be run at "enjoyable" settings on last years high end machines. MS just hasn't hit that "enjoyable spot" for the average simmer. I understand the concept of building in future levels of higher enjoyment - more eye candy and features with future tech, but they missed the "today" experience for the "today" simmer. So I bought it today but I can't enjoy it until some time in future - and that is still questionable. Some seem to be having a great experience with tech they bought within the past couple of months but that's not an option for me.ASUS A8N SLI Deluxe, AMD 64 4000+, 2 gigs ram,GeForce 7600GT 256, WD Raptor C Drive and 200 gig SATA. I built this machine myself at a cost of $2700 less than a year ago.

Everytime I fire up FSX the electricity goes out! Life is rough! All there is to drink is lime juice and hurrican lamp oil! Well, I do have c o f f e e!
