  1. I realize that it will be a study sim, but also Just Flight tend to have easy options to fly their pro- level stuff. I notice that they have a panel so that you can have it ready to fly if you do not want to do a cold and dark start. I must admit that I love the one that they marketed for FSX some years ago, and also released a load of textures including the RAF version which I really liked. I am glad that RAF texture is with the new one! Like you, I am impressed with their in house stuff...particularly the Tornado and am looking forward to the F.3 when it comes out as that is on my wi
  2. Ok..the new Just Flight BAe-146 is finally out. It's been a long wait but it looks very nice. I must admit that I am surprised at the price ($84.99), which leads me to this question.... How much would you pay for a quality add on for any flight sim? I must admit that this is about the most that I am prepared to pay at the moment and I would turn down most at this price unless I REALLY like the plane. I must admit that I REALLY like the BAe-146 family.... I wouldn't pay that much for their Boeing 747 though, as I have a pretty good one, even though it is for P3Dv3. Martin
  3. Hi Joe. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Things have been a bit hectic here. I have done some investigating and it appears that the issue is the interaction between the pre-installed Windows Defender on Windows 10 (which is virtually impossible to uninstall on this version of Windows),and my favored Anti-Virus software (System Mechanic Pro). Funnily enough, I took my PC in for a 1TB SSD C-Drive to replace the pre-installed smaller one. Things were alright back then. Since they have reinstalled the software on C-Drive, I am finding things seem to have changed slightly.
  4. I suspected that they will several updates/bug fixes, which is one reason that I am not trying it yet. Also, I would prefer discs and NOT just a download for that big program, but I don't think that they do discs for the U.S. right now.
  5. Hi all. I am trying to install a program from Just Flight and have not had issues with it before, but I keep getting an error message from the Program Compatibility Assistant saying that the program may have not installed correctly. In fact it did not do anything! I have tried to find any clues to see how/if I can turn that wretched compatibility thing off, but so far, no luck. Anyway ideas on how to proceed? Thanks. Martin

  7. Gee...I wonder what the pilot was up to last night?!
  8. Gee...things must be bad over there. I did not know that static aircraft had to wear a Covid mask!
  9. I have finally got around to the world of carrier aviation on P3D v4.5. I bought the SWS carrier Nimitz vol 1. and it is great. Having great fun trying things out and yes, there is a lot to learn! I am also reading the Haynes Operations Manual for US Supercarriers. It is a pretty good read to find out the operational procedures and history of US carriers.
  10. OK...thanks for your input Joe. Much appreciated. Regards Martin
  11. OK, I am not a computer geek and do not understand some technical stuff, but I am curious if my computer could handle MSFS2020. This might sound stupid to some of you, but here goes..... VRAM...not sure what that is? My computer specs are: (reading from the slip that came with it) Intel Core i5-9400 (6-core/6 thread 9M cache 4.1 GHz Processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology) 8GB 1xGB DDR4 2666MHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB GDDR6 (I am currently running P3Dv4.5 and it runs reasonably with some settings at max) Thanks for you help.
  12. The Captain kept hitting on me, so I put some bromide in his coffee whenever I make him one!
  13. Ok Joe....this one is yours. Take it away boss!! (From a non-smoker!!)
