Yesterday, for the first time since I started flight simming, I finally, and successfully, completed a long haul flight with a heavy duty addon aircraft (the wonderful PMDG747-400), FSCommander, Radar Contact and a few other applications, running across a network of PCs, whilst running FS on my main PC. At one point, i had three PCs linked, all using their own monitor, but utilising a KVM switch on two of them. It all got a

Hi Phil,what a great story to share. I'm so glad you pulled through all of this. We had a couple of scary months in the simFlight forums last year wondering whether we'd ever see your famous giraffe avatar again.Interesting point about networking PCs and "farming out" add-ons like RC.Keep on rocking!Cheers, Holger

Phil,Even after 20+ of simming it's still amazing that there's always something left to explore.I know exactly how you feel after a long haul like that one, especially the first! It's awesome! For me it was the first time I used actual real world NAT tracks to an overseas airport in Europe. Now I've been flying 'domestic' Europe...LOL.Glad to hear you seem to be doing good.We wish you many more 12 hour + flights for ya!! :-halo :-wave
