  1. Thanks, John...both for your quick reply to my questions and, once again, for your superb screenshots! Dan
  2. Absolutely great screenshots, John! What aircraft carrier software are you using? What software are you using to accomplish the formation flying? Dan
  4. Stunning screenshot! Enjoy your prize! Dan

    An unforgettably good image! Dan
  6. This is a panoramic image of a single aircraft approaching the Teton Range near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Two spot-view screenshots were taken from different angles, and the screenshots were brought together horizontally into a single image using IrfanView. I have three potential explanations for the appearance of two aircraft in the image: 1. It's ski season at Jackson Hole, and an additional flight had to be scheduled. 2. The aircraft is in a state of quantum juxtaposition. 3. The additional gravity produced by the mountain range has caused gravitational lensing.
  7. Thanks for the congratulatory postings. I want to acknowledge Jason L. Terry and Joshua B. Nyhus for developing the wonderful "Malibu Version 4 for FSX" (afc2v4jt.zip) freeware. Without their contributions to the FSX community, the screenshot would not have been possible. Thanks, too, to Mutley's Hangar and Just Flight for the contest and for the prize! Dan
  8. Your screenshot was my pick, too. Congratulations! Gloat and brag at will!
  9. If you are using FSX in DirectX 10 preview mode and want your freeware addons to display properly, use a site such as FlightSim.com to obtain your addons. There are many addons available that have been converted from FS9 to FSX but have not been fully converted. Although such addons will run in FSX, you will have to run them with DirectX 10 preview mode disabled. Once you have experienced the superior display quality of DirectX 10 preview mode, it's difficult to go back. Fortunately, FlightSim.com has many freeware files available that take advantage of DirectX 10 (including some addons that have been fully and properly converted from FS9 to FSX). Here's an example of what to do to obtain true FSX aircraft addons: Go to FlightSim.com. You will find hundreds of addon aircraft. You will find many that will run in FSX. However, you will find far fewer that will display properly with DirectX 10 preview mode enabled. To determine if the addon is likely to display correctly in FSX DirectX 10 preview mode, first find an FSX addon that interests you. Above the description of the addon, there is an option to "View." The "View" option shows a list of the files contained in the addon. Click on "View," and see if there are any .dds files in the addon. If all you see are .bmp files without any .dds files, the addon has not been fully converted to use FSX in DirectX 10 preview mode. It's okay if there are .bmp files present in the list of the addon's files as long as there are .dds files present as well. Although this doesn't necessarily assure the addon will work properly, it makes it very likely the addon will be fine with Direct X 10 mode enabled. Those are the files to download and try if you are using DirectX 10 preview mode in FSX. (This paragraph describes what to do when searching for aircraft addons only.) Former ACES Studio FSX developer Phil Taylor has a great list of true FSX freeware aircraft addons (and links to where to obtain the addons) at this link:
