  1. I've found the suggestions above didn't work for me - what I needed to do was go into the P3D sound settings and ensure that none of the devices used was the "default communications device". Even if I explicitly used the same device that was my default comm device, that was fine. Cheers!
  2. Looks like the drive is kaput. Cheers!
  3. So it doesn't recognize anything in that drive? When you boot into the UEFI setup can it see something in the drive? Cheers!
  4. Edge and Chrome share the same rendering engine. cheers
  5. I suspect your firewall, or DHCP gave out a different (correct) server IP address. How do you handle IP addresses on your network? Cheers!
  6. >> 22168 WideFS cannot be used until it is Registered through FSUIPC (version 3.44 or later) Cheers!
  7. Video cards used for mining are probably going to be in better shape than anything used for gaming. First, they're run at constant levels and therefore temperatures 24/7. Changing temperatures cause expansion and contraction that eventually make physical bits fail. My card regularly goes from 19C to 62C several times a day, not so for mining. Second (and most importantly) you don't make money mining at peak performance - you make it at peak efficiency or output/watt. Reducing power by around 25-40% only reduces output by 10% so most mining cards are running slower and cooler than gaming cards. Cheers!
  8. "Nothing is going to change.... we're buying you because of the people!" 😁
  9. How about the aircraft or (specifically) the panel? I was introduced to FSUIPC years ago because I needed a specific panel to work. Point is, there are a lot of moving parts and disabling FSUIPC may not just disable FSUIPC. Cheers!
  10. Huh? You consented to it all, and can freely withdraw your consent and uninstall. Sounds like pure modern capitalism to me. Cheers!
  11. That was my understanding too. I'd be surprised if they exist in the 64-bit world. Cheers!
  12. What might be helpful is to describe how much code you've written in your career, what languages, and the size of the development teams you have been part of, in determining the context of your comments. It's ironic that you talk about being bloated and slow to load - people were saying the same things about FSX! Many people had to buy DVD-ROM drives since it didn't come on CD, and barely ran on a 3Ghz Pentium with (at the time) a whopping 1GB of RAM. It wasn't until the Core 2 at the end of 2006 when it started to approach playable at any setting, and I'd argue that it wasn't until Sandy Bridge came out (a half decade later!) that you could really crank it up. But time heals all scars to one's heart... 😄 And honestly, it's 2021. If you do not have ubiquitous network connectivity to pretty much everywhere in your residence, the problem is not with the software but with you. Anyone in a First World nation that doesn't live out in the middle of a rural area should be able to get multi-megabit broadband (and with StarLink I think even that will no longer be a limiting factor) and I have Internet outages about as often as power outages. They are sufficiently rare to be noticeable. I don't doubt that the game might have been a little rushed, but the reality is that you can spend a half decade polishing things or you can get it out in front of users and accelerate that by an order of magnitude. There is no substitute for getting your product in the hands of customers and partners and letting them kick the tires and grow it. It's not much different than buying a car the same year as a significant redesign - you're going to get teething problems except it's in the hardware, so no free updates possible. Where have you been for the last 20 years? 😄 Cheers
  13. As a software author and user, I always have a challenge with this reasoning. It would imply that it's not really a bug unless 100% of the user base encounters it. Those kinds of bugs almost never make it past rudimentary testing and QA. Almost all that make it into the wild require a specific state or set of events of happen, which means that the vast majority of users are not encountering them. Cheers!
  14. I am fascinated by your ideas and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.
