    It doesn't matter the amount of ram ...Windows will always 'want' a paging file - something Readyboost can help.

    Fun plane to mess with.... Never a fan of a 2D panel that's just a scattering of gauges...ie...without a panel view... so am in the midst of modding one from the VC ...;)

    Jafo.... If you don't know what it means you're possibly in the wrong game...;) I started as a Motor Race Official in 1975 .... as a 'Comms/Observer' ...and am still doing it. This year's Australian F1 GrandPrix was my 30th consecutive AGP and the only 'Jafo' who has done them all ...;)

    Some of those harshest comments come from Microsoft.... ...and the low price was a failed attempt to improve the adoption rate for the OS which, despite its actual improvements with the kernel had a GUI designed by a committee and was/is a dud as proven by the hurried release/s of updates and a very real concentration on getting it right on 9. Thankfully Stardock has had enough experience with MS's GUIs to release proggies which restore 7's degree of functionality to 8, thus making the latter bearable.

    Keep away from 8. 8 is just the new Windows ME. Even Vista was less of a dog than 8. Since 7 is the FIRST OS that MS managed to release that actually WORKS.....stick with it...;) I've had FSX on 7 Ult 64 ever since 7 was RTM .... and it's fine...installed off the OS drive ... and is around 200gig in size. 'if' I can get it smaller I'll migrate it to the 'C' which is an SSD and thus faster loading ...;)

    Couple of snaps of my fave plane...the Thud ...these are old Alpha 2004s I did years ago ... simplistic but likes the bling metal. Ideally they should be 'B's .... but near enough....;)

    Yes...it's the 2D. The original was quite a bit 'removed' from reality. ....that's the Virtavia/Alphasim 2D ....recognizable as a Thud pit....but NQR...;)

    Thanks...;) It started life as the original Alphasim panel....then I went about setting it for 1680x1050 ...and thus began hunting down suitable references....ended up with animations for the stick, throttle, flaps, chute handle, canopy, knobs, and refuel probe. Then came modding gauges to look more like the real thing and then all the glass alphas ended up with animated reflected gauges. Finally a cheat or two... FA18 hud and clicking on the center of the HSI replaces it with a GPS.... For a long time I had the ATT and HSI swapped...as one photo like that does exist...but just recently I reverted to the 'default'... I even completely redid the ribbon gauges from the alpha originals...;) One thing on my bucket list is to get to the US and catch up with a Thud and convince...
