JakeI also have downloaded and installed DirectX9.0 with no problems. I agree with Mike re:slight increase in sharpness of tiles and models, no noticeable increase nor decrease in fps.Happy HolidaysRobert

MikeAfter installing the latest Fly! II patch and DirectX9.0, I had 5 CTD's on a flight plan from KHOU to KDEN, 4 right out of the gate and the last one on final approach. I removed an add-on view accessed by the "c" key, Overhead Camera from Miscellaneous category, file: Overheadcamera_v100.zip dated 3/28/02, and have not had another CTD since, knock on wood. I removed OverheadCamera.dll from modulespc folder and changed datacameras.txt file back to the original;5spot,Spot Camera,1chas,Chase Camera,1obsv,Stationary Camera,1flyb,Fly-By Camera,1towr,Tower Camera,1Hope this helps.Robert
