  1. Past hour
  2. I have upgraded to Windows 10 now, having moved from Windows 7. I have installed the basic FSX OK and gave it a quick fly. However, when I installed the Acceleration part (I have the Gold Edition), I got an error message saying that it can't register the product and an error code 1-80004005 came up after it had been installed. Any ideas? Thanks Martin
  3. Today
  4. Roy Chaffin gave me permission to do repaints for his B-25, so here are two I did a while ago jk4721 jk4725 And I'm working on a new one: jk0689 jk0698
  5. Microsoft stood still with FSX for 14 years, and eventually its crown was toppled. As we all knew it would be. X-Plane is currently seeing a lot of love from Addon developers, seemingly at the expense of P3D addons, but they're largely playing catchup with existing products, so at some point we can reasonably expect that Addon river to dry up, or at least slow right down. But the world doesn't slow down to wait for stragglers, and X-Plane 12 is presumably around the corner, along with P3Dv5. And yes, FS2020. Meanwhile, Intel is probably working on an i10 cpu, the NVidia 2180Ti will probably be awesomely expensive and still not have enough vram for my taste. It's a moving target, and you pay to play! I've already got my sights set on my next FS PC: https://www.scan.co.uk/3xs/configurator/reflectere-extreme and I figure if I save all the £2s I waste on the lottery each week, I might be able to afford it in about 190 years.... Course it'll probably still stutter! Oh, and as for Microsoft splitting their effort to update and rerelease a 14 year old product in direct competition with their new flagship.... hahahahaha! good one! Yeah no. Can't see it, not in any sensible universe (but on the other hand, there are signs that this is NOT a sensible universe... cough Brexit cough)

  8. I have seen this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tornado-Aircraft-Engine-Control-Panel-Ex-RAF-MoD/192979744881 and this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tornado-Combined-Position-Indicator-Flat-Slat/223482246170 and this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Panavia-Tornado-F-3-Fuel-Quantity-Indicator-Unit/323888211443 The engine control panel would be easiest to get working but the combined position indicator would be the most interesting to implement. First I need to get what I have working, and I can only justify the combined position indicator if I can get the trim gauge working.
  9. …..To hell with electric aircraft. Give me the full afterburner experience any day.
  10. Yesterday
  11. I have to say it looks good. But unless I can user my P3D aircraft with it I wont be investing in it. Financially I just cant justify yet another Flight sim. Microsoft has left it to late for me. P3D is good but I think X-Plane 11 is better and I have now switched to it. If it turns out that FS2020 is better still, then It will be a while before I can even think of switching horses again, and then what will X-Plane 12 be like? Its a minefield.
  12. Last week
  13. A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching his wife, who was looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off, he asked what she’d like as a gift. “I’d like to be eight again,” she replied. On the morning of her birthday, he rose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her to Adventure World theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Roller Coaster, everything there was. Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. He then took her to a McDonald’s where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie, with popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy, M&Ms. What a fabulous adventure! Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed, exhausted. He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, "Well dear, what was it like being eight again?" Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. "I meant my dress size, you idiot!!!!" The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is probably gonna get it wrong.
  14. I thought getting older would take longer. A wise man once said nothing. Respect your elders; they graduated from school without the internet. I've decided I’m not old; I’m 25 plus shipping and handling. Why do I have to press "1" for English? Did America move? Behind every angry woman stands a man who has absolutely no idea what he did wrong. Instead of "single" as a marital status I prefer "independently owned and operated". Vegetarian: ancient tribal name for the village idiot who can't hunt, fish or light fires! I look at people and sometimes think..."really? That's the sperm that won?" In my defense I was left unsupervised. My decision-making skills closely resemble those of a squirrel when crossing the road. Some things are just better left unsaid. And I usually realize it right after I say them. Camping: where you spend a small fortune to live like a homeless person. If my body is ever found on a jogging trail just know that I was murdered somewhere else and dumped there.
  15. So after reading the full report and watching the hearings on the tube from Special Council Robert Mueller looking into collusion between US President Trump and the Russians it begs the question, if Robert Mueller was a doctor would this be his diagnosis? "While we found no cancer, we still don't have any evidence that you DON'T have cancer. We would certainly say so if we did. So Congress is free to proceed with Chemotherapy if they so choose. Also pay no attention that we had to fire two doctors on our staff for malpractice."
  16. @John- They should have used Energizer batteries because they just keep going and going...... @Alan- I believe it for a couple of reasons the first being they know how to get government money for any alternative fuel testing and second even though right now electric is more polluting in the long run they need to be there with patents and such so they can reap the rewards when and if the tide of electric use takes a technological turn for the better.
  17. One often hears that the big oil companies are looking into, and investing i, electric or alternative fuels. But who actually believes that? The Oil companies biggest business revolves around Oil and Oil products, without the need for Oil the companies would very quickly go bust! Thousands of people across the world suddenly out of work and millions of tons of shipping lying idle. Those companies will protect themselves at all cost, even if if it means environmental destruction. Especially the government backed ones such as Russia and China. They have too much to lose to seriously be considering dumping their core business. And worldwide demand for fossil fuels is so high that it will still be in use in 100 years time! If mankind is still alive that's another matter entirely!
