    Singapore Airshow 2008 21-24 Feb

    G'day Johnny,Some really nice pics. Thanks for posting.A bit off topic but I particularly enjoyed reading your blog. I spent 6 years working in Singapore (Paya Lebar airport 68-74), and used to fly RC models at Changi airport which was in those days purely an RAF base. Cheers,Roger

    Need Help Fly2 instalation

    G'day Cesar,Did you notice that lower down in a thread titled "Fly for Mac" a user had exactly the same error message you are reporting. He finally figured out what the problem was. It might be worthwhile emailing him directly through the Avsim message feature. Cheers,Roger

    Need Help Fly2 instalation

    G'day Cesar,I'm a PC guy not MAC but have you checked to see if the Startup.pod file is actually resident in the systems folder?? I realise the error you got wasn't "file not found". But that's only syntax.On the pc my Startup.pod is 25,903 KB and dated 15.5.2001when you did the patching did the patches apply with NO error messages.It is essential that must happen for the patches to be successful.Hope this helps or maybe a Mac user will answer.Cheers,Roger

    sketchup

    G'day Chris,If you've been following this thread then you can see that you have a problem getting the texture for the *.smf model. If you are really interested in having a go at modelling then Caligari currently have Truespace 5.2 on special at only US$39.95 I can't guarantee that Chris Wallace's 3DS to s3D converter works for TS 5.2 but it works for 3.2 and 4.3 so I think it will.What file format are the Google Sketchup free models. You may be able to load them straight into Truespace if you are lucky. They may however need retexturing with *.tga files.Cheers,Roger

    sketchup

    G'day Didier,You have just confused me. Doesn't your plugin create the texture file for the *.smf model from all the individual texture files used to texture the model in sketchup??Cheers,Roger

    sketchup

    G'day Chris,No mate. Flygraphics is only a graphics format converter. If you look lower down in the forum though you will see that Didier has made a brilliant plug-in for sketchup that will produce an *.smf file that can then be imported into Fly! II via the scenery editor. If you are unsure of what needs to be done to get the model recognised by the scenery editor then download a file of bridge models that I uploaded to the library some time back and see what I did. Basically you have to creat an *.mlf file. It's not that hard. Give it a go!Hope to see you upload to the library in the near future.Cheers,Roger

    Historical info on smaller jets.

    My guess would be the venerable Antinov AN 2 or if they were real lucky an AN 3 (turboprop version of the AN 2). :-)Over 16,000 were built.Forget small jet transports. - they just didn't exist.Cheers,Roger

    Historical info on smaller jets.

    Business jets were a product of a capitalist society/economy. How do you see them fitting into a communist economy where the state ran all business.Aeroflot was their answer to the bizjet.!

    Sounds more like the sheer pin in the tow bar did its job.I'm sure we'll get the full story eventually.Cheers,Roger

    Fly! and Sketchup

    G'day Didier,That's great news. I'm not familiar with sketchup. Is it a freeware or payware program? Thanks to you and the team at ROTW for your support for the development of FlyII.Happy New Year to you and the team.Cheers,Roger

    fly2 patch and win2k

    Relax! It's not your computer that's causing the problem. It's generally accepted (but never by TRI) that there is a bug (of some description - no one has actually nailled it down exactly) in the patch installer program. This has probably been the hottest topic on this forum.1. Remove all FlyII files from your hard drive and then shut down all background programs such as virus checkers, screen savers etc. and it may be advantageous to also shut the sound off in windows.2. Then reinstall FlyII. DO NOT RUN.3. Depending on whether you have the American release or the European release download and apply the reqired patches. See the anchored thread at the top of the forum " First time Flyers ...please read " for the patches you need.4. DO NOT RUN FLYII BETWEEN PATCHES.5. If ever you see the "old file not found ....." message the patch has been UNSUCCESSFUL and you have to start all over again from step 1.6. If the installation and patching goes without a hitch then switch the sound on again and enjoy the sim.It's not as bad as it sounds and a bit of patience is well rewarded with a truly great flight simulator.If the above doesn't work for you then some people have reported success by copying the FlyII installation CD to their hard drive (if you have the space) and then installing FlyII from their hard drive. Hope this is of some assisstance to you. If not then get back to the forum and I'm sure you will get all the help you need.Cheers,Roger
