    Yes I've been away from FSX for a long while so in the interim bought a new machine, bought FSX-SE, installed Tileproxy and at the weekend bought the above. Despite all my best efforts I see nothing, I've now installed it twice, it lets me select UK East and West to add then takes ages to load 39 of something. Where have they gone. Any help on this would be really appreciated Thanks Paul

    Advice to a returner

    Well I went for it, but I'm not sure if I have done something wrong but if I take a flight from Lydd and follow the coastline, an awful lot seems very blocky and the sea doesn't blend at all, anyone experienced this, what few people are left on here now :wink:
  3. I have just started to re kindle my interest in things Flight Sim, FSX and P3d. I was an avid user, certainly of FSX and actually developed scenery for simmers, not much though (Bidford and Sywell). Unfortunately I suffered a stroke back in 2014 which curtailed my interest a bit. In a nutshell I want to start easing myself back in, I always had Horizon VFR for the Uk as a preference and if I'm honest I didn't take a lot of interest in Tile Proxy. However looking at some of the posts I've seen it looks far sharper than the Photo Scenery that was/is? available My PC is old by today's standards, I7 2.6 OC to 3.8, 6gb RAM and 1GB GPU I suppose but my internet connection is fast (75mb/s). I suppose what I'm looking for is any pointers on whats available now and will my UK2000 scenery and RevolutionX work with Tile Proxy, that was always the downside, everything was flat at lower levels Any Advice will be gratefully received Cheers Paul
  4. Fairy simple really, I select to install the patch, it validates, then I get the following message 'Could not write value Complete to key\Products\A8FF3B2933C3CFE458D0FC925E24299D\Features. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel' I have the original install sitting on its own drive (P) and its the only thing on that drive. Any ideas anyone? Thanks Paul

    Decision time

    I have used FSX since god was a lad, however I am now considering whether to leap into the new territory of Prepar3d. My only concern is my setup, it is now a few years old and I really don't wish to do a complete re-build. Any advice would be good at this stage. I am already thinking a new Graphics card is required so I am looking at a Gigabyte GeForce GTX770 Windforce 3x OC 4096mb GDDR5, also with a potential problem with power I am getting a new PSU (Corsair RM750) My concern is that even after this my cpu will not be up to the job, I have an Intel i7 920 2.6 OC to 3.8. I also have 6gb of RAM. Money is a bit tight so at the moment it wil be the GPU and power. Will I be able to run Prepar3d v2 and notice any great changes from FSX Thank you for any advice/tips Paul
