  1. Expect it is true. You really need to know the facts. I installed it 8x due to other things, nothing was installed on my pc apart from my legal copy. Also it was the very pirates themselves that bought it to light and the main guy they was after did a huge runner closing his web site down and wiping himself of the web. The only thing I will agree with you on is they should not have done it. The reason behind it I don’t blame them for. As long as you did not enter a pirate code into the installer you had nothing else installed, it really was as simple as that. Wrong yes but unless your stealing it, if your not then watching grass growing is more interesting.
  2. To use your analogy, No your “burglar” alarm never went off and no “burglar” never came to your home. Because you nor your home was of zero interest to anyone.
  3. Was there any need for that Frank? Let's just get the facts right. As long as you did not enter a known pirate code the "malware" self deleted and was never on your system. Read that again as its very simple. But I think you already know that anyway. There have been enough ill informed drama queens shouting out for attention on the topic. Here we are weeks later and you come out with a loaded comment like that. Lets just say from you that's very disappointing and totally uncalled for under a topic that should be for info on your A320 not having snipes at another for no reason at all. He was asking about your product. FSL A320 is and will be nothing like yours as you acknowledge many times yourself. Two different ways to do the same aircraft for a different type of simmer, there is room for both and each to their own. Your team have made huge strides to make your A320 a great product for the market your targeting. Is it to much to ask for that both you and each others fan base to just respect each other for what you have both done. I make no bones that am I huge FSL A320 user and fan. But at the same time I personally really respect what Aerosoft are doing with your new A320 and it looks like a great product if you have no wish to have a version like FSL. Why not just leave it at that?

    EDDB

    Just did my first flight after buying it tonight LOWS-EDDB Landed on 25R. AI worked perfect. FPS= nothing=could not ask for more. Lime and 29 did a fantastic job, thank you guys.
  5. It looks like a must buy to be.
  6. Is it Just me or has that coffee got a smiley face?
  7. I had to replace my GTX a year ago and was not happy spending £375 on a good one. From the comments above I just went to see what prices are like. The same 1070 GTX is now £565. OMG!!!! I feel for anyone needing wanting to upgrade. 1080Ti are £900 -£950..WHAT!!!!
  8. "Better"? A quote from Mathijs “FSL has a very different idea about their products, where we simulate the job of the pilot, they simulate the aircraft first. A subtle but significant difference. We do not enjoy system simulations a lot, we enjoy flying far more.” Personally I dont think its a subtle difference I think it's a "significant difference". A quote from Frank “Feel free to buy the FSL Bus. It is very nice, but also for a different market at a different price. The two products will never be the same or comparable for that matter.” Hope than answers your question? People will pick what suits them best and price is a huge factor also. It's great people have the choice.

    Roma Fiumicino Prepar3d v4 Problem

    Dino, The reason that most people turn off crash detection has nothing to do with landing. You will know if you landed well yourself. When developers make addon airports they add things like 3D grass etc all round the airport. If you run into a 3D object that you might not even see with crash detection on you will get a "crash" Crash detection on has always been a really bad idea like silly AI traffic that will block your way.. If you want to judge your landing get a program that can give your VS on touch down. But since you have been FS since 1986 you would know a good and bad landing. Turning off crash detection is the option to use, even more so if you use addon airports. Turn it off and forget about it.

    Thank you for reading it and taking it on board in the spirit it was written Mathijs.

    Hard to believe no one has replied to you about this Mathijs. This is my feeling on your system nothing else or an attack on you/Aerosoft or anyone. Just saying what your topic is about, feedback. The system does not work as you hope and think it would work. Your "only conditions" are no used, your very topic on the new Airbus is a example How can anyone downvote a topic to inform people on what a coming project has? Its mindless and you give them the means to be just that, mindless. "Every downvote is listed and checked and when the moderation team does not agree with it we'll let the voter know and will correct the situation. If a person keeps on misusing the system we'll remove his voting rights." Why? Why goto all that time and trouble. Why not just do away with this abused button you give people? This member seems very keen on your new Airbus but does not write English very well (I can talk ^^) but how can "you" justify them having a -47 rep? I Cannot see anything to justify a terrible rep. http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/profile/77197-dino1945/ Here Tom also got a 40% downvoted. Why? He needs a copy and paste to tell people to read the heading on every page. And gets down voted for reminding people? Really. I question the metal age of these people let alone give them a button to express how silly they are. Then you say "The system is also very useful for us in another way, it allows us to find the users who are more helpful so we can invite them to beta's and show them with some free stuff that we care. The people with the highest scores might even be asked to join our moderation team that has free access to all beta's and all our software. So it does pay to assist other people. That's part of the hobby, what I don't know you might know." Helpful? No, the people that give the most glowing praise to a given topic get upvoted the most. That does not make them the most helpful by a long shot. So you reward people with a glowing rep to beta test? Why? Your first priority should be to find members with a huge amount of time within an Airbus, that know the aircraft inside and out and the sim also very well. One of your beta tester did not even know AS had a radio weather reporting option and thought they needed to open AS every time they needed the weather!. Not good. Forum rep does nothing to show how "helpful" someone is. Not here or anywhere else. You call them upvotes and downvotes not the best terms to use. I cannot think of another forums that users your downvote option. Just what is it? Let's change the name for a second to better labels. Agree and disagree. A forum is a place to discuss things if you simply agree with someone you can apply a "agree" nothing more needed but some with quote and do a +1. If someone disagrees and has a different POV. Then do what adults do, reply and express your different view. Discuss it, it's a forum to do just that. Personally I would be happy if ALL forums did away with Agree/disagree upvotes/downvotes all together. They are just about a waste of time and the idea it shows how "helpful" people are is misleading at best. Take AVSIM forums. Goto the members list page and see who the most "helpful" people are? Don't because its a waste of time because the most helpful members are not people who help others out all the time it's people that enjoy sharing screenshots and posting them all the time. If your after a popular screenshot guy fill your boots. Knowing who is truly helpful on a forum is really for mods to see and take note of. Not a silly voting system that's fake. I think your system is so open to misuse it's terrible, is there a way that really works? No. Perhaps the best way would be to have two buttons a vote to simple "agree/like" and one for being "helpful". If people disagree they can share their thoughts, its what a forum is for. Not for a member to end up with a -42 rep. Anyway that should be good for -100 votes. If I had posted a glowing agreement with you Mathijis I would be even more "helpful". Anyway I hope you see my point even if you totally disagree with it. That's fine I can disagree with my wife it does not mean I think anything less of her. I hope you can take this as nothing more that constructive criticism because that's all it is. Nothing more nothing less. I just respectfully don't like your voting system. But it's your forums and your rules and ofc I respect that. But you did ask the question. But when people cannot even read the page there on from the top I question if someone points them to the top of that very page you should give them a button to disapprove of anyone pointing out there sort comings. Plus all the other ways they feel fit to use said button. The best I can come up with is a "like/Agree" button and a "helpful" button. To show two very different things.
  12. I enjoyed it Dave and thanks again for hosting and answering questions.
  13. You right Mathijs, it is insulting so is " it will be in your hands soon" or just "soon" then months and months pass from them comments with no updates or anything. You keeping your customers or customers to be (like Meyerflyer above) in the loop is truly an admiral thing. Unlike just about every other Developer that think " when we have something to say or show we will do". I own a shop and if I dealt with customers like Developers do with "it's software" like that gives them the perfect excuse to treat people with disregard until ofc they want their money. I am a huge fan of the A320 I fly, but to not even get an update of what's happening before Christmas or any update for 3 months is frankly disgracefully. Like the point your making just a 10 min job to keep your customers informed goes a huge way to making them feel looked after and respected. An update does not have to be about a release date at all, but just like you do it keep people informed and I personally think that's all people want. I applaud your stance on this. PS: I know your mods think I can be very harsh and abrupt but at the same time I will happy give credit when credit is due.
  14. The first thing anyone should do is calibrate the monitor and use a chart like you have linked. But when people wont even read the manual for the aircraft then what hope is they getting them to set there Monitor up right. I feel the devs frustration I've seen many shots and think "You need an eye test". The Preview VC shots looked fine, and people then can adjust in PTA as they wish, but as a base all of them shots looked fine. The Dev's will have there screens set up right, if people post screenshots of hideous colour balance and colour cast at the end of the day it's there problem not yours or the dev's. The dev's will do it correct am sure everyone will trust them to do so.
  15. I think Tom would pay a huge amount of money for people to just read the page there on and save him countless hours, or even the last reply before posting might due!. Poor guy. Tom whats coming first the 320 or 318....................................... Is it going to have trueglass BTW I need to know that also?
