  1. Yes, it does. That's why the file that I use from Avsim, and others like the one NickN posted on the Flight1 forums work especially well for triple monitor setups, because the size of the actual "light points" has been reduced. Took me quite awhile before I settled on what I liked. Luckily it's not difficult or tedious to try out the various options, just a quick file swap or changing lines in the FSX.cfg. In the end you just have to try a few different ones and decide what looks best for you.
  2. The file that I recommended has deliberately been reduced in size for those with triple monitor setups, since (at least with the TH2Go) the halo.bmp tends to look quite enlarged which makes the runways resemble a 500-gigawatt lamp festival. Alternately, ORBX offers a lighting utility that allows you to select among several different sizes and shapes, but I forget which product(s) it is bundled with. Ultimately my favorite solution was the one I outlined above. I'm a real world pilot and though relatively inexperienced next to some others around here, it looks convincing enough for me. Find what works for you and let us know what is your preferred "recipe"!
  3. I might be able to help. I have a Triplehead2Go digital setup with 3 monitors, and the lights go way out of scale until you change them. Here's what I do, and hopefully you will achieve the same results: 1. If you own UTX, set the size of the lights in the UTX frontend to 25% brightness. 2. Download and install the file "th2go_new_lights" from the Avsim file library 3. Add the following settings under the [DISPLAY] heading of your FSX.cfg file: RUNWAY_LIGHTS_APPROACH_SCALAR=0.8 RUNWAY_LIGHTS_STROBE_SCALAR=1.0 RUNWAY_LIGHTS_SURFACE_SCALAR=1.3 RUNWAY_LIGHTS_VASI_SCALAR=0.8 Here's what my lights look like now (sorry the runways aren't closer in the picture): Obviously you can adjust the settings as you see fit, but I'm quite happy with what I have at the moment. Good luck, GG
  4. I don't think they'll exactly stroll into the office and the first thing they'll do is hit a "release" button.
  5. Thanks for the heads-up...I've been waiting anxiously for this one!Regards,GG
  6. I could have sworn Vista has a similar feature built in, where you could view running processes in much more detail than Task Manager and determine which to shut down. At least I know Vista Ultimate has it.I'll have to go look, but I'm almost positive about that.GG

  8. >>There may be something I'm not getting, but this seems heavy>to me considering he was ultimately just trying to help the>guy out. >The sig was added after the fact.Feel free to stop me if I'm wrong here, but Bill essentially reprimanded the OP for voicing his opinion here on the AVSIM forums rather than specifically going to Eaglesoft's developers for assistance first (whatever that means). That's not a very helpful gesture, nor is his tone particularly courteous.This is a flight simming community, and everyone here has a right to voice their opinions, both good and bad, concerning payware releases. We all rely on the opinions of other people here so that we can make better buying decisions ourselves.Whether or not we choose to voice those opinions here or in the forums of the original developer is our prerogative, and not a breach of any consumer etiquette that I'm aware of.I don't see a need to elaborate any further.GG

For the dueling PhD's around here, that's a rhetorical question, mind you :)I think Tom's stance is completely reasonable. The people here rely on the opinions of others on this forum for their buying decisions, as it should be in any good community. For a developer of payware products, full disclosure should be absolutely compulsory at all times.My 2 pennies.GG
  10. That's almost as silly as reviving a month-old thread to make a comment to someone who is no longer a member of this forum :-)

You guessed it!Wow....wiped out your hard drive....that's grounds for divorce! :-lol"Yes your honor, perhaps the alimony we're requesting may sound unreasonably high....but your honor, the defendant is responsible for deleting the plaintiff's Flight Simulator 2004 installation, WITH ADDONS!"GG
  12. I'm one of the many people who use ActiveSky and Flight Environment together.If you have both, you can use ActiveSky's weather engine to generate the weather, but use Flight Environment's graphics to display it.Unbeatable combo IMHO.GG
  13. Hi Haraldh,I'm not sure if that's it - the website says these airports are also made by SimFlyers. I could have sworn that I saw a different version of JFK, but I'm honestly not positive.Thanks for the link though - that's a nice package.GG
  14. No prob - I was only going for the humor factor, but maybe I'm the only one who laughed! :-shy
  15. Hi everyone,I know about the old SimFlyers KJFK, but I could have sworn that another scenery addon was released maybe last year for this airport. If I'm not mistaken, it was bundled with a few other airports as well. I did locate "World Airports Vol 2", but it looks like that's just the SimFlyers KJFK packaged together with others.Does anyone know which JFK addon I'm looking for? Was there another rendition, or am I completely mistaken?Thanks,GG
