  1. This is a little promo video I was asked to do for Action Stations (Flying with Legends.) I will be doing this flight with the Action Stations team in June, really can`t wait. Not many folks these days can say they flew in formation with a B17 Hope you like it Doogie
  2. Tom I`m sorry to hear your news. You have given so much to the flight sim community over the years. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family what ever the outcome. Doogie
  3. LOL try telling that to 4 and 6 year old boys. They sit there quiet all day but soon as I`m on short final they start fighting or wanting stuff.....every time :rolleyes:
  4. See Kyle`s answer above. I was dealing with 2 noisy kids at the time so forgot to set the altimeter to local pressure which resulted in me being much lower than I should have been. Easy mistake to make if you get distracted on approach. Just glad its a sim lol Doogie
  5. The other day I was landing 30R at OMDB in the 300ER. Terrain calls all the way down the glideslope. Guess who forgot to set there altimeter at transition altitude. Just saying :ph34r: Doogie Reid
  6. Stan, sounds to me like your not seeing the pop up window for that security warning to trust the new A2A dll file. Its probably behind the FSX window when FSX boots. Hover over the FSX with your mouse on the task bar when this happens you should see two small windows one is FSX the other is the warning, open the warning one, click on run on the security message. That should let FSX boot up normally. Sounds simple huh, been caught out before, sitting there waiting for 10mins forgettinb that window pops up under FSX`s window lol Really hope that is your issue. Doogie
  7. I have FSX SE duel installed beside my normal boxed FSX. Add ons used here UK2000 Edinburgh V3, Alabeo R66 Turbine, PMDG 777, REX Soft Clouds, REX Essentials Plus Overdrive WX and Textures, ### AI Traffic at 100%, FSDreamteam GSX I`ve noticed a slight improvement while capturing video in FSX Steam. Mind you its not as bloated with add ons as my boxed version. All these clips were filmed live with AI traffic set at 100%. FPS were 30 locked no matter what even in the PMDG777
  8. Thanks for the update, duel installed without a hitch Doogie
  9. Well FSdreamteam, A2A and others have just updated their installers to work with FSX SE. It seems to be an open platform to add on developers. I don`t know if PMDG even have to be involved with the Steam market download content. Seems like if they re program their dll hooks and installers the stuff will work. Could be a lot of work for PMDG given the complexity of the aircraft. But if others are doing it I`m sure given time they well be along for the ride also. Just thinking out loud though so don`t read to much into my comment. Doogie
  10. Totally agree, why would any add on company turn down new customers even if DTG take a small slice of the profits it just does`nt make sense. No disrespect PMDG, I would love to see my trip7 work in the steam version even although I have a very solid FSX install just now. Why because I like steam for convenience of purchases and install of software. I never touched PC Gaming until about a year ago, yet I`ve been a flightsimmer for over 15 years but was always a console gamer. Soon as I learned about Steam I never looked back, my PS3 lies redundant. I`d love to be able to fire up steam, look at a huge add on list for sale and purchase something every week or so instead of having multiple accounts over various flightsim stores. It does not make any business sense for an add on developer not to support the influx of customers that will be joining our large but often stuck in our ways community. Doogie
  11. Really an unfair burden...... More people coming to FSX through Steam means more customers for add on developers which equals more revenue for developers. That is a hell of burden lol Sorry Rich I just keep seeing these posts all over the place, it does not make business sense to turn down extra cash. Doogie
  12. Thanks guys. Downloaded and installed the SP and the 300ER latest. Look forward to trying her out over the weekend. Douglas
