I loaded this scenery this afternoon and having checked for the correct placement of all files I'm still getting a CTD. Problem is different from Keith though, my crash comes whenever I try to create a flightplan using the inbuilt flightplanner. If I try to create a manual flightplan as soon as I tr...

Still snowing in Leicestershire. Got sent home from work after battling my way in. Sensible decision really as driving an LPG tanker in these road conditions is not fun. Am now sampling the "joys" of daytime TV

[quote="Garysb"]Hi all Intel Quad cor or AMD Phenom? Intel every time at the Mo They new AMD Shanghai quad is out and may be slightly cheaper than a comparable Intel offering. The problem is it still does not quite have the pure grunt of the intel chip. If money is tight then go for the AMD, but thi...

Im running with SP3, got to be honest not noticed anything different or annoying. SP3 is just a collation of all the minor bugfixes and security updates since SP2 was released. There no major changes to Windows or any of its components. I have not had any problems since I installed it and on the wh...

Looks like a fair system although I would prefer an Intel quad core processor if thats within your price range and of course as previously mentioned a more recent graphics card. Am currently running the GeForce 8800GTX and that gives some very good FPS numbers. If you are going to use this box just ...

djnocturnal I have O&O defrag and was wondering what is the best method of defrag for my Drive with FS9 on it. I used O&O Defrag for a time (try before buy) and found an article By Mike McCarthy (6 January 2007) on Flightsim.com to be very useful. It was called Mikes musings #4 & #5. He refers to b...

I knew there was a good reason for me having a Landclass scenery layer in my system (I just forgot about it).

Works fine now with the Luke AFB Landclass.bgl in the Landclass\scenery folder. Hill Landclass.bgl moved there also.

I have had the same result as bismarck

Reloaded luke from scratch and then deleted 'Luke AFB Landclass.bgl'

After 3.5 hours the sim remained stable with no memory problems

OK well it seems that we may have an issue here. So I guess that we need to narrow down the cause. Can the guys that have the problem disable the Luke scenery, but please make sure that the necessary afcad (MAIW_AF2_KLUF_CUSTOM.bgl) is copied to an active directory and then check to see if the same...

Gentlemen

Thank you for the information on the origins of "Matelot", 24 years sailing the ocean blue and that never came "it just was".

Any day when something new is learned is a good day.

Just imagine:

MAIW Mig27/31

Hi Ford Being an ex matelot the areas I would most likely visit are those that figured during my military career. This area being the home of the Russian(USSR) Northern fleet would definitely be an area of interest. This is the area from which the TU95 Bears that occasionally buzzed us came from and...
