  1. Hi Peter, We will give it a try. We will upgrade the SOAR site this weekend or very soon thereafter, and should have 35 gigs bandwidth. Karen was wondering if you could help monitor the bandwidth for the winch downloads as she has to try to stay off the computer for a while. Her wrist is giving her real problems and it is very painful for her to use the keyboard. Don
  2. Great news Peter! Finally we will have a realistic glider winch for FSX. Don
  3. The emoticons are coming! Cheers, Don
  4. Peter, Did you have an old account with Aerosoft and if so are those two post in 2006 you? Don
  5. Hello Mathijs, and Shaun, Karen and I are very, very grateful that you are willing to include us with your Aerosoft Boards. I can not think of a more desirable organization on the planet to be associated with than you folks. The quality of workmanship on your products, and your ethics are without peers and you set the standards for virtual aviation in MSFS. SOAR has been in existence sense 1999. Karen and I have been intimately involved with it from almost the beginning (2000) and for the first time we feel we have a permanent home. Aerosoft has the whole of Germany beautifully rendered in photo realistic scenery along with many, airports. We have Cumulus X (thermals), and Sim Probe (ridge lift) for lift generaton. We have Aerosoft's FS Maps for flight tracking and navigation. Very soon we will have the perfect sailplane, Aerosoft's Discus Glider. Aerosoft is indeed the perfect home for SOAR! We look forward to sharing our wonderful experiences in virtual soaring with your 45,000+ members and truly hope many of the members of the Aerosoft community will discover the joys we have enjoyed through the years. Best Regards, Don and Karen
  6. Here are my best attempts at some loops with a Sagitta, illustrated in the Max Rec Viewer. Outside Loop, Inside Loop, Double Loop (Outside/Inside) Cheers, :cheers2:
  7. Sam, Where do get the LightHorse repaint for the DG-808? Thanks, Don
  8. Hi Randy, Thanks for sharing the video. You did a great job. Where can I get more information on PlayClaw, and Roxio's Video Wave? I would like to try making a video myself. Don
  9. Max, I am sure glad you realize this, The graphic looks great!! BTW, it would be nice if the sound of the airstream in the cockpit accurately reflects the airspeed and its variations. Also a "G" meter would be useful. :AA: Don
  10. Max, Sounds great. Let me know when you have something to try out. I would really like to know what is possible in this area of flight with FSX. Cheers, :smiles: Don
  11. Okay, next question. I have a Dell computer which is under warranty. Dell does not support partitioned hard drives. If I partitioned it I would loose my warranty. Will it be possible to install Windows XP on one hard drive, and Windows 7 on another physical hard drive? Don
  12. Will you be able to run a dual boot system with Windows XP and Windows 7 Don
  13. I finially got to the web site. All I can say about all this is that Bill Gates and Microsoft are renown for their arrogance. This horrible mental condition always leads to stupidity. Microsoft's latest move to totally eliminate Aces I think is a classic example of the relationship between arrogance and stupidity. Gates and Microsoft are equally renown for their greed. When you have a situation where both of these detrimental behaviors exists, the results will seldom be productive. Don
  14. The site keeps timing me out. I have satellite connection and it must be too slow for that site. Bummer
  15. This URL is broken. It does not work. Don
  16. Hi Max, I remember when you first thought of this concept several years ago. What a great idea!. It would add a whole new dimension to virtual soaring. My only concern is the capability of MSFS to accurately model all the various aerobatic maneuvers aircraft can perform. It is my understanding that MSFS is weak in this area compared to some other flight sims. Assuming a creditable aerobatic flight routine can be developed, and a satisifying way to view the results and accurately judge the performances, I say lets go for it. Cheers, :AA: Don
  17. I have removed the links until this mess gets straightened out. Don
  18. Scott, I just accidently deleted your last post. :smashfreak: Could you please repost it? Sorry, :sorry3: Don I went to my e-mail in inbox and your message was saved there. Thank goodness. Anyway here it is: Scott wrote, Phil, they show up in FS2004 and FSX, but with no panel instruments. There may also be some question at the moment to copyright or permission to post the aircraft. I'm going to dig a little deeper into the single aircraft that I finally got to get downloaded. I remembered seeing it somewhere before. For now though, I think it's fine that you have the links to these aircraft, but you may have your post edited if the aircraft are found to be pirated in one form or another or in the slightest way. I am going to refer the download to Wolfgang to see if John had gotten permission to post the models as is. I question the permission of posting the model, because there is no ReadMe file present in the download. And in so doing, he did not say anything about an instrument used in this model that came from the asw15 I believe. Anyway Wolfgang is being notified about this, and without downloading the others, I'm unsure of the original authors of those models to see if they need to be questioned. I hope John didn't do a no no by posting these models without permission, cause I would be surprised to see any major reasons an author wouldn't want to see a model continue on into another version of the sim if possible and if it was being presented well. There can be personal reasons of coarse though, just depends on the author I would think. Scott
  19. Okay, The SOAR DG-808 can be downloaded from the SOAR FSX Aircraft Download page and there is a notice on the main SOAR page. Don
  20. Wow, I leave town for about a week and come back to find out you guys have completed a makeover of the DG-808. SOAR really has great talent. Congradualtions!! :respect: :respect: :respect: Don
  21. I just found the problem today. We are looking into the problem. In the meantime we suspended the poster uintil we find out what is going on. Don
  22. Ian, The computer is looking great! Now they want to redo the flight files. The computer probably exposes their errors in the Discus's polar curve. I would think rewritting the flight files would be easier than writting the files for the flight computer. Looks like Aerosoft is one step closer to getting the Discus out the door thanks to you. I hope this glider makes it out of the hanger before Christmas. Cheers, :smiles: Don
  23. Peter, What does gas cost per gallon in Europe? You must have cars that will run on fumes and will go for miles and miles on a gallon of gas Did you by chance take any photos while driving through the Dolomites? Glad you had a nice trip. Cheers, :smiles: Don
  24. Hi Ian, I agree with Dirk. You would certainly be the one to develop the the virtual C4 computer. I hope it will be possible for you to do the job or at least develop something that will be suitable. I think the glider project is very dear to Mathijs's heart and I think he would pay you a fair price for your work. The Discus would also be a huge step foward in virtual sailplane development. Cheers, :smiles: Don
