didn't Phil Taylor say we could watch that FSX DX10 'exhibit' online?

Recommended Posts

There was an online thing a couple of weeks ago that was to showcaseDX10 (and Vista, I guess) and it was going to show a lot of FSX.You had to sign up for the webcast.I was sure that I had seen where Phil Taylor (or maybe another ACES member)had said that the webcast would be made available online for all of us to see.I keep checking the blogs and various websites but I haven't seen it mentioned again.Did I miss it? Is it out there somewhere? Is it still going to be putonline? I'd realy like to see what FSX looks like with DX10. I'msure I'm not alone in that.

I never heard about any webcast. All I heard was that it was to be a "walkthrough of DX10 magic screenies".I'd say that will NOT occur for at least several months.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2310 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2 GB Corsair XMS 2.5-3-3-8 (1T), WD 250 gig 7200 rpm SATA2, CoolerMaster Praetorian case

There are 2 different "things" here:1) the webcast from 2 weeks ago2) a future discussion I promised on the screenshots that Aces released last yearI spend more time on why DX10 is good in the webcast than on the FSX DX10 plan. We need to get SP1 finished off and make progress on DX10 before we should comment in depth on what we intend to deliver.

It would be a good idea if a link to this webcast was made available of the FSinsider site. Actually I thought I read on one of the Aces blogs or a forum post somewhere that it would be? Hal?....Phil? anyone?

I am trying to get a link from the USPR people who sponsored the webcast. I apologize about the delay.

I was personally hoping for more questions regarding what sort of future developments we'd see using the new features of DX10 and less "When is the patch coming out".

I'd love to see what theyare working on but I'll know what I get when I get it.but as for questions: When will HDR be incorporated? Why wasn't it alreadyin the FSX package? and how much of an effect will it have on all thosepeople who are creating addons with textures that may not look rightonce the new lighting scheme is applied. (see wikipedia: High Dynamic Range Rendering)just curious, BTW :-wave
