    DaveQ, how did you manage to get the CS 104 to work in FSX? I've not been able to?

    Agreed. One thing to note about the RB version, it lacks the turbos.

    I really really don't want buyers remorse...I feel like Scott has more up his sleeve...I really don't want to buy a fixed gear Cessna if they've got a retract coming soon...but I do like all the systems features...It's a hard sell for me, because I do want to start flying something more GA, but that has system depth and is something I would fly IRL. The hand towing is a complete waste of time IMO. I have zero desire to simulate hand towing an airplane during my time to be flying...and quite honestly, if you are a RL student pilot and your reading this. Take my advice, if your flight school is charging you for simulator time in P3D and you are performing the A2A pre-flight walk around and or hand towing as part of it in the simulator...time to think about a new flight school...in all...

    Do you use the DXTbmp application? If so, you might need to flip both the Normal Map and the Alpha Vertically. But I don't use FS9 aircraft, so hopefully someone more knowledgeable will respond!

    Here's a review/Article I wrote a while back...so some info dated, but most still valid, and I've removed the interview portion: 5/31/2012 – Updated 11/2012 Behind the Scenes at Warbirdsim I have been flight simming since the good old days of Chuck Yeager’s Air Combat. I can’t even remember the year, but I think I started around 1994. I was 14 years old. Now, at age 32, 18 years later and holding an FAA Instrument rated Commercial Single Engine Land and Multi-Engine Land certificate and working for a large Aerospace company in the northwest USA, I have flown classic instruments, glass cockpit and twin turboprop. Through it all I am still flight simming. You could say I have a healthy obsession with aviation and flight simming in general. I tend to gravitate towards...

    Welcome to the forums! Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands! I asked over and over for some really great bare metal textures for a few different aircraft but never any takers. So one day I just took it upon myself to figure out how the whole repainting thing works...it took time and a patience; and there are plenty of people here that are more than happy to help you learn the ropes...heck im still tangled up in the ropes! unfortuately I don't own this bird. However once you get desperate enough for a repaint you'll be surprised what you can accomplish! I hope someone does take your challenge though!

    I commented on their Facebook page that I was a little burned out on Cessna on the whole...but I might have to eat my shorts because I watched the video on my 37" when I got home and man its amazing. I don't own any A2A GA aircraft so this would be the first buy for me...I noticed that they have standard gauges but the one they were flight testing was G1000 equipped. I wish they would do a FPS friendly g1000 version also. One other thing I noticed in the final view of the c182 at the very end of the video there is a single pilot with a hat...is that Scott? Looked a lot like him! Those sly dogs!

    Good to hear Mike. I've updated the file in downloads area for anyone else who may have been experiencing issues. Also to note that you can apply this repaint to the -2 Bearcat if so chosen. Just simply make a new entry in the aircraft.cfg and change any references to the "-1" or "1" to a "-2" or "2" and change the title to something discrete for the -2. I've got both variants using this repaint.

    000rick000 replied to a thread Bearcat in FSX Hotshots
    My appologies...I'll have to upload a fix for it...but here's the fix in the meantime. Open your aircraft.CFG file and locate a stock paint entry for the -1 bearcat. (Note, you can apply this paint to the -2 bearcat as well) and beside the "sim=" entry replace it with whatever one shows in the stock paint entry. I am using 2 different air files one for each of these variants and they are named differently from the stock name. I must have left my entry in accident. Sorry for the mishap! That should fix it though.

    1. You need a host website such as Flickr, Photobucket etc. I use Flickr because it copyrights the images for you. 2. You need to copy the image location link from that hosting webpage 3. Click on the "add image" icon in the menu here 4. Select "from URL" and Paste the link into the bar 5. I uncheck the the option for "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" That's it.

    You really do need Acceleration installed. I contains the enhancements for most of the advanced features which many developers use.
