  1. Actually, when the word gets out about MSFS 2020, it may stop the spread of COVID19, because everyone will be at home, in front of their computer. A software pandemic ends a biological pandemic ... This is not your father's Oldsmobile.
  2. Excellent for you, Peter. But I'm one of those guys who would rather have a notebook open in front of me ... it just seems more natural and easier to navigate. BTW my images from the 747 tutorial are so dark, it's hard for me to read them off a computer as well. Maybe I'm getting glaucoma. Here's one each from the 777 tutorial and the 747 tutorial.
  3. I'm not sure if it's just me, or if others are having this problem, but when I print out the 747 v3 tutorial, all the images are much too dark. I solved this problem by meticulously taking each image and adjusting the levels in photoshop, saving the results as a separate PDF page, then binding them together into one document. The resultant prints were MUCH easier for these old eyes to read. If there is any interest, I would be happy to upload the PDF to the AVSIM library. Has anyone else had a problem with the images printing too dark? Dennis Trawick
  4. Sometimes when I have digital conundrums, I use a search engine to find a workaround or solution.
  5. ACARS ... the surprise is ACARS ... some serious deducing went into my official guess. Perhaps I'll win a prize. After all, I was very close in guessing about the Operations Center. My guess was flushable latrines.
  6. Froogle mentioned in his "first impressions" video that there were over 400 pages of documentation. Is there more than is listed on the PMDG website document page? Thanks
  7. PMDG does not publish release times.
  8. This hurts. AVSIM is like a second family to me. Thanks Tom. God Bless You. See you soon, my friend.
  9. Congratulations, Scot. But, with all the work I've put into this, I fully expect a free version of your software Someone told me once that bug fixing in software was a lot like solving a murder. Logical, step by step, removing suspects one at a time. Way to go. P.S. Oh yeah, I forgot. My LINDA 2.6.2 is working flawlessly.
  10. Great news, Scot. Find that little bugger and stomp on it!
  11. 2.6.1 was working flawlessly for several days. Then I decided to explore the LINDA console and pushed the "Reload LUA Engine" button, and the sim crashed to desktop. I was not able to use 2.6.1 afterwards without CTD. If you would like, I'll try to replicate the event and send you the file.
  12. Great input guys ... thanks. I have renewed hope getting this thing going. I'm off to study the ASN manual. I'm sure I'll be checking back with some Q's.
  13. Any program that will take a little load off the main FSX processor. My readings have led me to believe that items such as ASN, RC4, FlightSim Commander, etc. I also would like to inject scenery from that computer as well, if that is possible. I have watched Froogles video a dozen times and I can't get past setting up the network to see the FSX drive. His FSX is inside a folder of his C:\ drive. Mine is on a separate drive. I can get my computer to "see" the C:\ drive, but not the FSX drive. That is leading me to believe that all sharing must be between C:\ drives.
  14. I recently built a Haswell E (4790K) rig. My plan was to network the new computer (with FSX installed) with my older Ivy Bridge rig with the ancillary programs I use. I suppose my overall networking assumptions are wrong. I assumed you would have the processing power of two computers able to share files and programs between each other. On my FSX computer, I have a 1TB SSD exclusively used for FSX. My OS is on another SSD. The Ivy Bridge rig has a 500GB SSD that all the other FSX programs will run. It's OS is also on a separate SSD. I have tried direct connection using USB and ethernet patch cords. I currently have the two computers networked through my router, however I cannot get the machines to see anything other than the OS drives. Is it a requirement to have FSX installed in a folder on the same drive as the OS? Are you not able to network two computers with separate drives for FSX? I admit, I don't know a lot about networking, but I've been trying to study up but just can't get the "big picture". Any direction or advice is greatly appreciated.
