Based on the subject of this post "Microsoft builds FSX into Vista next year!?"I don't think the person posting has a clue of what was written in the article or what VISTA SP1 is even about.

The magic screenie was a manipulated image based on a desktop wallpaper included in Vista.I spoiled the joke, at least for myself, and I apologize. I've been up way too long the past few days.

Yeah that thing was purposefully the same location as the Vista wallpaper... I forget where it is, in WA or OR somewhere I think.

>Yeah that thing was purposefully the same location as the>Vista wallpaper... I forget where it is, in WA or OR somewhere>I think.oh...heh. Now I feel silly. I actually checked my wallpapers before posting that to see if it was something that was already included (ie, that the magic screenie might be copied from). I guess I didn't look hard enough. I guess I slaughtered the joke from the get-go. And I thought it was a good one, too...

That was a pre-SP1 estimate. It should be much faster post-SP1.

All I can say is that there BEST be some God rays in dx10 just like in that picture. World at war has them and fsx dx10 better as well.________________________________________________________________________________________________Intel D975XBX2 'Bad Axe 2' | Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.20Ghz | 2 GB Super Talent DDR2 800 | Big Typhoon VX | eVGA 8800GTS @ 565/900 | Seagate 2x320GB SATA RAID-0 | OCZ GameXStream 700W | Creative X-Fi | Silverstone TJ-09BW | Matrox Triplehead Setup

" It will improve the sytems security......". Sounds like more hurdles to overcome to get it to run games. The article says there will be an increase in performance...let's hope so.

>Crysis looks a lot better than that. So much for FSX.FSX would look pretty sweet too if ACES had 3 years to model Maui... and nothing else. ;)

>Wait, this doesnt mean that sp2 has been delayed until 2008>does it?Ok.Here's what the article is talking about.Microsoft is putting out a service pack for Vista. That's for the operating system, not FSX or anything. This service pack (which, incidentally, should have DX10.1 on it, if I recall correctly) should be out in 2008, early from the looks of it.Since no one has said differently, I'm assuming that SP2 for FSX is on schedule. It's being beta tested right now.The screenshot of vista in the article uses a wallpaper that was what one of the magic screenies was based on, so the joke was that they were including FSX with the Vista SP2, which, to Mauihawk's credit, is pretty funny when we cleared up the confusion.

Ah-hah! Since the new style of Vista is called "Aero", it stands to reason that we should be using flight sim controls to navigate the user interface! :D :D

'People' is a plural meaning a group of persons. 'Peoples' is a word that dosen't exist.
