  1. Now that is funny!!! But I have to wonder about the conversation...."How on earth will we get this F/18 across the water? Hey I know, we can move it across on this tiny boat." Once it got transported, someone probably then said: "You know, after thinking about it some more...we always could have flown it across...."
  2. Simply put, they should never have disbanded the Aces team, and instead developed the successor to FSX. And done it right, without carrying over legacy code. Huge mis-step in my opinion. Robert
  3. Hi Matt, First off, thanks for taking the time to share your experiences on P3D with us here. I have a small question: I see that the $50 version includes a small watermark in the upper right hand corner, - do you have this same version and if so, is it noticeable or is it something that gets forgotton after a bit... Thanks!
  4. Oooh, that last pilot did an amazing job!
  5. Shaun you beat me to my punch line: That video was 1:42 minutes long, I bet the outtakes or missed shots video is 22:45 hours long!!!
  6. Using a 28" monitor, running natively @t 1900x1200 (same setting in FSX, 32bit). I want to go to a multiple monitor setup soon though...
  7. Mathijs, Here's a question for you: are you running the processor at a constant 4.4 OC, or is your BIOS setting enabling "turboboost" up to 4.4? There is a difference...one runs at a constant core clock of 4.4, while the other will ramp up the CPU to 4.4 depending on load. An easy way to determine if this is not clear in the BIOS is to run a simple program like CPUZ (here) and look at the clock speed at system idle (after a fresh boot up for example with no other programs running). 4.4 is definitely a sweet spot for the i7 with a watercooler...nicely done!
  8. WHAT??!?!?! Doth mine eyes deceive me??? Mathijs, overclocking? I knew you could not resist temptation!
  9. Nice one Mathijs...really solid components (I'll reserve my opinion on the Fatal1ty branded hardware as I think you pay a bit of a premium for his Avatar namesake). It should be a great performer for FSX! We can't wait to see a posted FSX screenshot from you taken on your new system.
  10. Hi Fly2012, I too bought this scenery and was dissapointed with the textures on the main strip...to be fair, the rest of the scenery is very good. However, for me, the main strip just ruins it for me. I hope Aerosoft considers a much needed update to this small area - that would make this scenery up to Aerosoft standards in my opinion. No where does this product state that it is a "budget" series, I would not have spent my money on it if it had.
  11. Bear in mind, that with these proposed measures, as with all prior laws regarding copyright protection, the intent isn't to go after "the little guy". The probability that you will have your iPad or iPhone seized to examine content is virtually non-existent...imagine the man-power and time consuming process that would be involved? And as Shaun points out, they would be battling the use to fair right laws, and if you can prove that you legally own the blu ray or DVD or CD etc then it becomes even harder to prosecute...too time consuming. Sure, the verbiage might be in there just to make it ironclad, but the "intent" of the law will be and always has been to go after illegal distributors of large amounts of copyrighted material, or those that download massive amounts of it. And that enforcement will come from ISP forensics, not end user device inspections. It's a bit like speeding laws: yes you can get pulled over for travelling faster than the posted limit, but they'd be pulling over just about everyone...not feasible. They're after the ones going at least 10 to 15 over...
  12. All - the SOPA bill has been withdrawn from our American Congress...indefinitely. Link is here
  13. Happy Birthday Mathijs - hope you enjoy it with family, friends and a fine wine naturally! Robert
  14. Andreas, I don't use the term "jaw dropping" very often, but that was incredible! I will be checking out AeroFly FS very soon after watching this video...thanks!
