Good news... thanks for the update.But to be honest, I'm a little shocked its this late. (I had hoped it was already out there, but I just didn't know of it.)We began the week of the 5th thinking the beta would be out that week. Midweek you said that because of some illnesses and odds and ends you would need "a few more days". In my head, tacking on "a few more days" to Friday the 9th put the release mid-week the following week or by the end of that week at the latest (the 16th)But its basically 2 weeks later than that now... did you continue to take more issues that you hadn't planned on taking?My concern is that if you were 2 weeks off on your guidance for a release a week away, how far might you be off in regards to a release a month away?(Oh, and Happy Birthday?)

WOTM? Not even Google had and answer for that one.My best guess is Whine of the Month... but I really don't find my post that whiney... is it? Certainly there has been some better whining on this board over the past month.

Wonderful stuff.My new Conroe E6800 build should be finished by then, so any performance gain from the patch as well as the new hardware will have me smiling from ear to ear.FSX just keeps getting better and better :)Thanks for the update.

Thanks Phil, good news. I'll be happy whenever it comes out as it will improve a flightsim I like as is. Yes, more fps and other corrections will be appreciated, but I think FSX is a very good fs now. Also, appreciate Aces attention given to forum updates. have a good day.

How refreshing to see a flurry of positive posts swamping the moaners and groaners and those 'smart' unproductive quips. Phil, your professionalism and restraint is an example to those who aspire to develop their own characters ...Or if I may quote the famous English author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: "Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself; whereas talent instantly recognises genius." FWIW I trained in an RAF Squadron and sat a 10-week CPL course later in life but have only ever flown privately over the years. As a simmer since subLogic days I personally rate FSX as a milestone achievement and take my hat off to all the talented individuals associated with it. Frankly, as it stands its one of the best forty odd 'quid' I ever spent. And I like to think I'm not a greedy person, so if SP1 goes on to make it better still, well I know many will join me in simply saying - 'thanks again!'Let's be honest, it can take some cash but this whole flightsim thing does get better and better as the years go by, right? And yes, it takes a lot of patience too, but meanwhile we have lives to get on with ... don't we? GarethSPAIN (retired)

The applause comes when the patch is delivered, and it delivers the goods. After all, if it was done properly the first time we wouldn't be waiting on SP1. Would we? While I can appreciate the news, as I 'd like a sim I could use, having already bought and paid for it on undelivered promises, I rather think it a little premature to be gushing all over the ACES team at this point and `spreading the joy`. In fact, should those who seem utterly overcome by this news be even allowed to acquire the patch? Good Lord, the extra excitement could kill? :)Allcott
