  1. Performance is very good.My system: Q6600 @ 3.6 ghz 4 GB Ram Geforce 8800GT 32bit vista I locked my FPS at 20, and they stay there while flying the f16, even above Mega Airport Heathrow. Don't have my exact FS settings here, but they are all in the high regions for sure.
  2. Mathijs, sorry to ask this here, I didn't know in which forum to post it.. I purchased and installed WOS succesfully, but when I try to run it I get the attached error.. When I try to run it again it asks for my email+serial again too. I am running vista home premium 32 bit, and use realtek HD onboard audia with drivers from june (the latest). EDIT: I solved it by downloading the latest directX from the microsoft site.. Didn't come through with windows update and I wasn't aware there was a new version ... As for the "asking again for serial on every run problem": run WOS as administrator, otherwise your settings won't be saved too. Briliant and great looking game now these issues are solved
  3. Looks great Mathijs!!Will definitely check this one out!
  4. I wont say anything about the possible mis-alignment of the runways as I am not able to check that at this moment, but why do you think changing the heading of those runways would be a small job? I do a llittle scenery design myself in my spare time and in my opinion this would not be as simple as you would think... The runways are integrated in the underlying satelite photos, turning these runways in any direction would mean a rather large job for the developer afaik ...
  5. I have almost the same system as you have (i have an 8800 GT), on which windows version are you? I have vista sp1, and FSX sp2. When I first installed FSX, my framerates where smooth (locked at 20 and never dropped below 19). This slowly degraded over the weeks untill my fps looked like yours. Yesterday I suddenly recalled having read somewhere about removing the fsx.cfg to improve fps. I removed this file, set my graphics settings again (everything to the right except AI) BOOM-> 20 FPS again (default airports and addon airports like aerosoft heathrow)! Maybe worth a try? I also would take a close look at your graphics driver and maybe reinstall those. It's very weird the amount of memory is not correct ...
  6. Hi VinFlyer I myself am always happy with "LG" screens. Can't help you with technical details as I'm not into that a lot (for screens anyway). Why wouldn't you buy a widescreen? If you take eg a 20(or was it 21)" widescreen, you get the same physical height of a 4:3 19" screen but a lot wider.. You will see you get a lot more room in different programs like photoshop. For someone who is a professional graphical designer I would consider this a (huge) advantage ...

    Monitor question

    Hi Edu, I have to agree with the previous posters. You have to use your monitor's native resolution to have best results. I looked it up for your monitor and you have to use "1920x1200". the 20 pixels difference with the resolution you used may seem unimportant, but you should know that your screen is going to manupulate the image (software-wise) if the resolution is not equal to the native resolution. Knowing this, even 20 pixels can mean a big difference...
  8. Gert, at first I had this problem too, but when I went out to look in my shop account I saw that a second s/n appeared at my lukla order (from april 2006). It looks like this: x Lukla - Mount Everest - Version : Direct Download - Serial : 088-****************** - Serial : 67****************/np Use this serial number only for the new download file (notice download links). when I use the second serial (starting with 67) to purchase the X version, the serial confirmation is OK!
  9. If I'm not mistaken it is the "." key (brakes) that triggers the gun inflight, so there should be no problem for you to map it to a button or key of your choice.
  10. Hi Paul, you can't change the files because the Program Files folder is secured by default (in Vista anyways). You can lift the security measures off the flightsim X folder if you want, that way you won't have troubles again when trying to changes this or that file. Just rightclick the FSX folder and select properties. On the security tab select "edit". In the edit window, you give the right user(s) "write" access as you can see in the screenshot.
  11. SP1 is included in acceleration, so it is enough to just install acceleration on a stock FSX (but it is of course possible to install it on FSX + SP1).
