    I have little experience/knowledge wrt P3DV4, but suspected all along it may be like FSX, reliant mostly on single core performance - hence the i9 9900k may have the edge. You still have a valid point, @wombat666, because the tech I have involved in all of this seems to prefer the i9 9900x deca-core CPU, based on his 'gaming' experience on multi-core systems. He is not familiar with P3D, and unfortunately not too many in the shop are either. All they say is that multi-core systems are the way of the future, and software developers must adapt their 'games' accordingly or be left in the dust. Perhaps P3DV5 will have a true, new multi-core architecture ? Noone knows yet. In the meantime, the cost factor keeps creeping into the equation, and that has the scales tipping a bit in favour of...

    That is correct. And after takeoff you had to remember to reverse it otherwise the gear would extend into the fuselage and be visible. :ernaehrung004:

    I must say, that I have been taking notes based on all your input here, and have received more answers here in this past week to my query than on some other sites combined over a period of months. Proud to be a member here at SOH.

    I went through the Win 10 saga today, a new MB forced me to leave Win 7 because USB 3.0 drivers were not available. Intels Z-390 chipset! I have to agree with Priller, say no more. However I think there are many here will say, there by the grace of god.....; many of us will have done something similar. Normally I leave drives connected, silly yes, lazy yes, maybe I was lucky in past upgrades; today everything was disconnected apart from Drive C, all data backed to another drive. I sincerely hope that Gordon’s data will be saved; but I dare a person (PC term!) to say he hasn’t benefited from Gordon’s terrible experience: I have! Best wishes Gordon and I hope your data recovery is on course. Kind rgds

    Everyone, no matter how brilliant and experienced, will occasionally do something less than optimal. :very_drunk: Gordon, when I started work this morning, I went to Save a .max file to my local Dropbox folder, only to discover that the entire folder was missing. Thankfully, Dropbox's Cloud allowed me to recover the folder and contents quickly. I could also have recovered the same folder/files from my NAS, or any of my company's team members. You cannot have too many copies. I am so sorry to hear of your disaster, I hope that its recoverable. :wavey:

    I'm still trying to understand how 4 experienced training pilots allowed a Boeing 777 to get down to 88 knots over the fence into SFO, but it happened. Even the best of us make an occasional error. I wasn't re-formating. I was downloading an executable to a thumb drive. If I were going to re-format anything I would unplug every frickin' thing in the box, except the drive I intended to format. I had just assembled the new box, installed drivers, updated everything and loaded Windows. The Windows version was outdated, so I decided to download the current version and re-install. I've downloaded a gozillion executables in the past and never had one detour into the wrong location...then proceed to re-format that location without my directing it to. I have, in fact, been re-downloading...

    And another really good 911 to stir up the Adrenaline! Very close to 'our' yellow GTS in fact, comes from SutaSimGarage.

    Most annoying, this sucker will not load and throws an error despite three different downloads and installations!!!! I've been haunting VELOS site since this came up as a WIP as it's one of those classic from when I first discovered Le Mans and Jaguar. That was in another life. Just have to grow some extra patience! They look good.

    I'm sorry AussieMan, I happen to think that your remark in the given circumstances is wholly inappropriate. Our friend just lost 10 years of work and you see fit to criticize him about that. The fault was not his, he clearly indicated to the media creation tool to use the thumbdrive and the tool didn't do that. Kicking a man who is down because he just lost 10 years of work through no fault of his own... I hope you feel good about yourself. You're staff here, so probably I will now be banned. Priller

    If anyone wants to dig deeper, I highly recommend TSR.2, Britain's Lost Bomber by Damien Burke.

    Gordon, while I feel sorry for your predicament I am amazed that a man with your knowledge and experience with computers would even think to leave an external drive with valuable data on it connected to your computer while reformatting. I usually leave my external drives disconnected unless I need them for pulling data off or running my P3D V.4 or X-Plane.

    Hi, have you tried setting up a blank combat flight simulator 3 folder on your C drive, and letting the Firepower files install there? Then you can copy over whatever files you so desire to the install on your D drive. IIRC, I now have all my Firepower files in a folder on my backup drive (including updates to v 1.8, and subsequent mos files, skins, etc) and I can pick and choose which aircraft I port over to a particular version of cfs3.

    You could make a dummy folder on your c drive ,install, then manually install the FirePower files to your CFS3 game on your d drive. That's one way. Don't know as mine is on the c drive. But it shouldn't be too hard to do. Let us know if that doesn't work but it should.

    I became really interested in TSR2, reading everything I could find on the subject and was fired up to get the model finished. The main landing gears are like nothing else on earth, they must weigh tons! The prototype was nearly lost in a landing gear malfunction. I could have told the designers that they would have trouble with them but sadly my opinion meant nothing. After some pain I managed to get them working on the model, to a point. Although it has the appearance of some sort of futuristic missile on the ground once in simulated air it looks less appealing! Enthusiasm for the project began to ebb away. I would have money on it that they realized it was a lost cause and cancelled it for that reason. I still fly it around the "Mach Loop" from time to time and may go back to...
