Gents,Do a little Google searching and you shall find the answers to your questions. I'll give you a few hints, 'Naked MVP', 'Hal Bryan', actually that will get you all that you need. I would suggest bookmarking all the ACES teams blog sites, and check them also. It'll show them we are very keen to get more and more information.The answer to your questions are quite satisfactory in my opinion. Let us know what you find![hr width=100%" size=1 color="black]http://forefrontgrp.com/MyLogo2.JPGJason | General Aviation Fan

I think we have all taken it easy for long enough. I can't believe that it could be the end of '07 before DX10 path. I'll stop there as we've all hear it before. FSX has been out and broke for what.......4 months now. It's time to stop playing games with us and get on the ball. This is getting to the point of being unacceptable, as if it wasn't in the first day of release. And I don't want to hear how someone got it running at 15 tweaks. Should have had to do that in the first place. All we're asking for and should get is a patch for the current state of FSX and we should have to wait any onger for this.

The best thing to do is to uninstall FSX, put the DVD back in the box, put the box up on a shelf somewhere, and reinstall FS2004. I did this about two months ago. I am not an FSX hater. I will eventually move over to FSX probably towards the end of this year I would imagine. By just accepting this fact will make the frustration of waiting alot easier. Just act as if the release date for FSX isn't until October of this year, and if they get the DX10 patch out earlier, well that would be a nice surprise.Lets face it, Microsoft has a silly theory on when they release their flight simulator. It makes absolutely no sense. They release a flight simulator to run on next-generation equipment that isn't even out yet so the game has a long life-span into the future. Sounds nice, but MS releases a new Flight Simulator every three years. How stupid. There practice of releasing for next-generation hardware would be fine if they didn't release a new game but every 5 to 10 years maybe. It is laughable.Anyway, you need to adjust your purchase of MS Flight Simulator to compensate. When the new Flight Simulator comes out, plan on moving over in about a year or a little longer. All of the nice add-ons that really make up the Flight Simulator won't be out until then at the earliest anyway. Just stick with FS2004 for now.And don't, I repeat, DON'T, go out and upgrade your computer to run FSX today. I doubt FSX will be ready for DX10 for several more months, and hardware prices are going to fall by the time you really need to upgrade. You will save loads of money if you wait out upgrading until Microsoft gets everything ironed out with Vista, and FSX.

Lovely FSX.Wonderful desert textures everywhere.FPS problems if you attempt to tweak it.Mis-stated minimum requirements.Large aircraft that change direction quicker than an F-16.A program that boasts a big step forward in simulation.Dual core and SLI reccomendations falsely given.A definate step-back in progress and the credentials of trusty MS.And producing garbage like this they expect us all to trust Vista and DX10.................Don't make me laugh, please?What a F-----g let-down.-------------------------------------------------------FS9 with all it's bells and whistles will never be beaten.At least upgrading to prepare for FSX has got FS9 running with all sliders to the right.Long live FS9.

Someone talking sense Dave. FS9 will go down in FS history as a classic whilst FSX will be filed into, and already has been by me and some others, the FS2000 turkey bin!

Sorry, Dave. What's the point of your post? Are you saying anything that you don't think has been said a hundred times already? No, you're not. Why don't you give the guys at Aces just a little slack here. They have said there will be a patch. Until that comes out what is the point in repeating the same complaints? If, after that, you still don't like FSX then that's fair enough. You're entitled to your opinion.

LOL I do have to say this with this industry which is pretty sh**ty I have noticed they get away with alot of sh**... You sure as #### don't see Chevrolet put a 2007 Corvette on the market tell you it run's good and show video of it swerving in and out of cone's and doing all this glorious stuff. And put it out on the lot with a 4 cylinder engine. You buy it and spend all this hard earned money excited about this nice new rig pull her off the lot stomp it it sputters chokes and barely moves so you turn around to take it back. They say sorry no return's but you can trade it for another. When knowing dam* good and well you are gonna get the same rig and they tell you to wait 6 months till they get the new engines made. Well guess what they can't do that cause they know good and well that another auto maker is going to take their business. Well this stuff on the other hand is like a grab a** empire they got you by the balls and too bad your gonna have to wait. Ok got that out. Sorry a little frustrated. Happy Landings, x:-) JoshP.S. Sorry must be some viking coming out of the wood work today (LOL)x:-)

But if you buy a 2007 Chevy and don't like it, you can always sell it.Not so with FSX. Once you have registered it, that's it mate, it's rubbish to anyone else.Expensive rubbish.

Dave, Wouldn't disagree with you. I really think this industry at times is worse than a common street thief. And I do not mean that it is like this all the time. What ever happened to the good ole day's a man with a cigar looking dirty a little greased up with a high and tight hair cut and a good classic hand shake & his word seal the deal. Well the world went and got itself in a big dam* hurry... Happy Landings All, Josh

Cut them some slack!!? How much bloody slack do you want me to cut them. When I posted regularly on here a few months ago about this FSX turkey some said that it was a repeat of the FS2002 to FS9 transition. Well, here we are three months on . . . . very few payware addons, endless freeware addons for FS9 with the odd FSX addon in reply. A thriving FS9 forum. It's not the same as last time. People are still with FS9 or are going back to it. FSX has failed. It's in the FSX history books already. Even Peter Wilding who launched a pro FSX tirade initially has come around to the truth. FSX is for GA flying with little else to suck FPs going on around. Not many are drawn to that kind of set up. And there *is* a point to these posts. Such issues need to be raised. I've walked away from the hobby and you can bet your life that there will have been many others who are doing the same too!
