    Finally abandoned FS2004, but still use it occasionally. I have also reverted to only two screens in anticipation of adopting Virtual reality. I cannot wait for MSFS. Still living in Indonesia but cannot work out why LOL. I Miss Australia but downtown Blitar(Birthplace and resting place of Soekarno) is now HOME for me with trips back to OZ to see Grandies etc.

About Me

  • About Me
    8th Generation Aussie and proud of it. Love Flight Simulation and motor racing (watching it) Not much else to do here except interfacing with my Indonesia family and this is a big part of my life here. I have an Indonesia wife (married 15 years) and two adopted teenage daughters.
    Very little/limited technical support here so I rely on a very slow internet for information and or technical computer help. I would like to permanently and copntinuously thank all the people who have helped or tried to help me in the past on this incredible forum.

  1. Bert, I have said it before just how much I admire you and your contributions to Flightsim. I have been the benefactor of your wisdom on many occasions and words cannot convey my heartfelt gratitude. Simply put, I know of very few who have contributed so very much to this sim in the form of advice and encouragement. This thread is just a small indication of the contribution you have made to so many clueless (actually I mean me and not the general public here) simmers. Heartfelt thanks to you for all of your help to all of our simmers. Bestest regards Tony
  2. This just proves how subjective some statements made on here are. With no, absolutely no, evil intent to V1RO, I have to say that I have no interest whatsoever for his top five. I would not be downloading them if they were free. We are all very individual people and if we have 300,000 members, we would have very nearly that many top five versions listed. FSElite have listed most of the sites offering sales discounts and I would assume that most people have somewhat of an idea what they would like to buy during this Black Friday (?) sale, so I would seriously suggest heading to FSElite and checking it out. Again, that list is not going to please everybody, but spare a thought please, for those of us who are not able financially to take part, leave alone, take advantage of these sales. I have very, very few payware items in my hangar, but I am a happy vegemite as there is so much freeware contributed by so many incredibly gifted people who give their time, energy and skill for the enjoyment of others. I have currently put away some money to purchase one model of the PMDG 737 and I am currently seeking a painter for that model which ever it may be. Of course, my choice is one which will probably never go on sale LOL. I am very sure that there are many simmers in the same boat as I am but we are still very able to enjoy MSFS2020. Have at the sales guys ... buy what you want and please enjoy them to the fullest. Regards Tony
  3. Was that the end of the book of poetry in the dunny (Aussie slang) or the empire LOL Tony
  4. Hello all, This is now posted on Flightsim.to with thank to Just another Pilot for the link. I admit I did not give this a thought before posting. Thanks everyone and here's hoping. Regards Tony
  5. This livery certainly is fictional. To my knowledge, if it is currently registered to a Wirraway the registration would be VM-CAC unless civilian registered of course. Actually, if it is registered to a civilian owned Wirraway the registration would be VG-CAC as that is the GA registration code with VH being commercial aircraft. I could be wrong with all of that of course. I really do appreciate your response. It is at least visible now. I was unaware that it was in the AVSIM library and I would like any new repaint to be freely available there as well as Flightsim.to To my mind it is one of the most attractive BBJ repaints out there (no #%*&( false modesty here guys LOL) and if anyone can do this repaint, I would be profoundly grateful. The aircraft name is Sih Awianingsih (my wifes' name) and it is underneath the rear part of the external cockpit glass. Lastly, I do not mind if this is done to any model of the PMDG 737 line ie 700, 800, 900 or the BBJ, however, I need to buy this aircraft model after someone has agreed to do the repaint. Regards Tony
  6. Bert, Well done again mate. You amaze me with your constant and helpful contributions to AVSIM and flight sim generally. Bestest Tony
  7. Adamski, I just followed that process and picked it up straight away. It does say that it is not a safe site but you can hit the "proceed" button. It is about the 5th livery down from the top of the page. If you are a painter I can PM you with an image if you prefer. Just a thought though. How hard would it be to convert FS2004 liveries to MSFS2020???? Regards Tony
  8. Mate, A great idea and if I had the technical ability to do that I would have. That is the reason for all the information I have provided. I admit that I am somewhat of a dumb donkey (or similiar word) and apologise for that. Best I can suggest is to google Flight1 ifly737 library and on the right hand side select the FS2004 ifly737 ... that should bring it up on the first or second page. Sorry again Guys Tony
  9. Bert, Are you still contributing enormously to MSFS and flight sim generally by being responsible for these manuals? I do not actually own any of these aircraft but if I did, and you penned these, they would most certainly take pride of place beside my throne. Yes, I have to admit being old school enough to have enjoyed many many hours reading in that particular room and (ahem) I believe it all started with Playboy magazine which I read only for the articles of course. Back to topic, A BIG "thank you Bert" for at least pointing out these manuals for those owners of the specific aircraft. Regards to all Tony
  10. Hello all, I have finally decided to buy the PMDG BBJ and I would dearly love a talented person to do a repaint for it. This request is based on an old FS2004 IFly 737-900 as a BBJ and can be found on the old Flight 1 library files system (FS2004 IFly 737 BBJ - Five Star Charter) done by Karzhol Designs for me a long time ago. If some wonderful person is willing to do this for me, please just say yes and I will msg you with an image of the aircraft. The design is mine and is dedicated to my lovely Indonesian wife, to whom I have been married for nearly 20 years. The only other thing to be aware of is that I wish it to be freely available via Flightsim.to as a PMDG fictional livery. Regards to all Tony
  11. Grosse, Biggles is on the money here. Ariane NEVER had a good reputation either for their product nor for customer service/satisfaction. Even if they were still in business you would be wasting your time and money chasing an inferior product. May I suggest 2 things. 1. If you wish to maintain FS9 (still a great product) I think Ifly Boeing 737 is right up there as great 737 aircraft software, rivalling PMDG and cheaper. There are still developers developing for FS9 but it has all slowed to a trickle and this sim has been updated by FSX, PD3/4/5/ and now 6, XPlane10/11 and now 12, as well as MSFS2020 (about to be updated to MSFS2024) 2. My wholehearted recommendation is for you to update to MSFS2020 (Premium Deluxe version) and/or XPlane or P3Dv6. All of these are vastly superior to FS9 in every aspect of aviation. Please bear in mind that all of these need a somewhat more powerful computer to run well and that factor should be considered carefully. Good luck and welcome back to you and a hearty welcome to your son. Regards Tony
  12. Should that be "nice two" .... just trying to be politically correct LOL Have a fun day you all Tony
  13. I just love these post titles. So very relevant. I know English is not his first language and I just think I am getting too bloody old. Tony
  14. Goates, Yeaaa...that is what I was looking for. After all this time using MSFS to find this, I am a self confessed idjit LOL By the way, doing that update seems to have fixed the problem anyway, so I should probably left the problem for a few days and thereby not revealing the workings of my tiny and aged brain. Than you so very much for your input mate. Regards Tony
  15. Goates, Thank you for those links which I shall look into very shortly. I will let you all know how I get on. Bert, Thanks mate, I hope it will sort it out too. JohnathonC et al, What happens is that if I quit to desktop after a flight, and immediately restart MSFS, it goes through the normal load up procedure until it gets to about 75% and then locks up in exactly the same way as incorrectly signing out of google map replacement. Since I have not used that feature for some months now, and have checked the relevant file, I know that, that is not the cause. The only solution left to me is to sign out of Xbox, restart the computer, sign in to Xbox and then I can restart MSFS. I am very sure it is the Xbox system that is at fault but I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it to no avail. The only thing that I can think of is that after the last update, I lost my MSFS desktop icon and now have to start using Xbox. To get that desktop icon back, i believe the only way is to uninstall MSFS and reinstall using the install desktop icon at the beginning of the re install. That takes a full day despite having a 300mps starlink connection. I have just noticed that there is an Xbox update today (it is about 5.00am here) and I will do that and see if it has any effect. If it does not, I will check out Goates links much further. Thanks again for your responses guys and as usual, I want you to know that all responses are appreciated. Cheers Tony
