  1. Dave and Joe, Thanks for the responses. If I'm getting this right, you can't just designate a destination for the bitmaps to be saved, except by having FSScreen.EXE in the desired location. The statement in the Readme.TXT led me to believe that you could somehow point to a destination. I was reading more into it than was intended, I guess. Thanks again for the help. John
  2. Have you considered a route through eastern Europe and Russia, mabye dipping down into the Middle East and China just for interest, then across the Bering Straight into Alaska, across Canada or the northern US to, maybe Halifax, then across the pond? It's a viable alternative to the more southerly routes, but might not be as picturesque or interesting. I suspect eastern Russia is long on trees and terrain and short on most everything else. It does pretty much avoid long overwater legs, at least until reaching Halifax or Gander.
  3. OK, gents, I've found and downloaded FSScreen 1.1 and it's a very nice piece of work. It's easy, works well, and as advertised, doesn't "hit" FS at all, performance wise. Having said that, there's a line in the readme file that says... "The file is saved in the program directory of FSScreen, but you can set another directory as working directory for FSSCREEN.EXE, then your screenshots will be in that directory." I'd like to do that, but can't figure out how. Someone a lot smarter than me once said, "Every solution creates a new problem." Thus it is with this one. Since you folks were so helpful in answering my initial question, perhaps you can provide a vector on this one too. By the way, this forum gets REALLY quiet after about 2000 Z (except of course on nights when there's a lunar eclipse). Must be a time zone thing, eh? :dance: Thanks for your help. John
  4. Very nice! You set a high standard for the rest of us to live up to.
  5. OK, I'd be willing to fly a US leg. I propose a leg ending at Meigs field in Chicago. The actual airport no longer exists, as the mayor, in a political play in the middle of the night several years ago had the field obstructed and essentially confiscated the airfield to turn into a park. It took a matter of several weeks for the trapped aircraft to get out after negotiating permission from the FAA to fly off the taxiways. So, the actual airport is no more, but still exists in FS9. It's a great setting on a piece of land that juts into Lake Michigan. Some of you may recall that earlier versions of FS actually started you at Meigs. I used to live right across the lake from there, about 40 miles as the seagull flys. I'll fly the Caravan, with real world weather, which can be a challenge in Chicago this time of year.
  6. Is icing modeled in FS9 or FSX? Some of the aircraft have no OAT gauge, so it's difficult to know When you're vulnerable.
  7. At the very high risk of betraying my ignorance, how do you get multiple screenshots? The limit of my understanding is, push the PRTSCR key, then to to the graphics program and paste it from the clipboard, edit, save, etc. I'm seeing shot after shot, obviously captured in a short time on the same flight. How about a clue how you accomplish that?
