    Minimum Specs Question

    Hi, I know the minimum specs state a 2 GB video card, but is there any chance it will run in FSX with a 1 GB card? My card manages the PMDG 777 and 747 v3 very well so I had been hoping it would handle the new Maddog. I flew the previous version endlessly in FS9 and I'd love to buy the new one, but I just can't afford both the plane and a new video card at the moment. Paul

    A2A christmas sale 25%

    +1 for Ant's Airplanes. His T-28 Trojan and CAC Winjeel are both superb - amazing bargains even at full price. And his Ballina Byron Gateway is one of the best freeware airports out there.

  11. Hi, Leafing through some old magazines the other day, I discovered a 1980 Pilot Magazine flight test of the 35A by Peter Duffey. Peter had an enviable career, flying an incredible variety of types including Avro Lancastrians, Yorks and Tudors, Douglas DC-3s, 4s and 7Cs, de Havilland Dragon Rapides, the Comet 1 and Comet 4, the Boeing 707, and finally became a test pilot and BA captain of Concorde. He clearly loves the little jet, finishing his review with, "Please may I have a Learjet to play with when I retire from airline flying this year?" Anyway, if you want to read the flight test, just PM with your email address and I'll send you a copy (if my scanner behaves itself, that is!). Paul

    If there ever is a Lear 35A - 2.8...

    Hi, Great news for those who missed the Learjet's fully dimmable cockpit lighting, which was removed by the 2.8 patch. Flysimware have given us a patch to restore it, if we don't mind using the extra memory. I haven't tested it yet but you can download it here: http://www.flysimware.com/website/LEARJET_35A.html Paul

    If there ever is a Lear 35A - 2.8...

    Hi Scott, I've written to FSW asking if they would give us a reverse version of the previous VAS patch. That is, a patch that would restore the fully dimmable cockpit lighting for those of us who are prepared to sacrifice some memory. That way, users would have a choice. I personally never had any VAS problems with 2.7. They were very responsive when I contacted them over a problem I was having over key assignments. They're a great developer, and I really like this little jet, but not being able to fly it at night will cut my enjoyment precisely in half. Paul

    If there ever is a Lear 35A - 2.8...

    Oh No!!!! What has 2.8 done to the beautiful cockpit lighting.!? Now only the flood is dimmable - the INSTR and EL PNL lights are either on or off. Can anybody else confirm that this is the case? It's way too bright for comfortable night flying. I presume they've done this to save VAS, but it's a big mistake in my opinion: one of the plane's outstanding features was the fully dimmable cockpit lighting. Really disappointing. Paul

    If there ever is a Lear 35A - 2.8...

    Hi, As someone who doesn't have a full version of FSUIPC, the 2.8 patch is really great. I wasn't able to assign the tailhook command to nose wheel steering. This was apparently a FSX Accel vs FSX SP2 thing: those with Accel could, those with SP2 couldn't. This was a big annoyance because it meant scrabbling around with the mouse trying to find the little button on the pedestal during every roll-out. But 2.8 fixes that. Bravo Flysimware!!!!! Paul
