    Any word from John? I'm not done yet. Leaning how to use DOSbox so those users that have Win7 or newer can use MDLC to convert airplane (or ship) back to CFS2. Writing the guide now. Will be needing testers with Windows 7 or newer to try it out soon.

    I started looking into DosBox with MDLC.exe and so far things look good. You have to use command line what sucks but things are not as bad as I feared they could be. I still have to check all of the animations after using /t and figure out out the collision bubble command /z.

    UncleTgt is right in what I was taking about. I almost 100% sure that fixed windows where added in FS2000.

    If you have XP or Vista using mk_mdlc_v2 is the best way. mk_mdlc is a windows interface that dose all of the command line for MDLC.exe for you. Otherwise you will have to use MDLC.exe with a emulator/vertical box and do all the converting by command line. I never had messed with a emulator or vertical box but know others have use emulator/vertical box for 16bit programs like MDLC.exe

    The only converter is MDLC but you must have XP Vista or older as MDLC need a OS that supports 16 bit. If on Win7 + have a emulator/vertical box and have the emulator/vertical box run MDLC. The lack of 16bit support on Win7 + is why many of us builder haven't upgrated to past XP/Vista or keep an XP/Vista around for just building aircraft/objects. MDLC will convert FS2002 and FS2004 back to CFS2. Most aircraft from FS98 and CFS1 work just fine. Going from FSX to CFS2 I don't know of any straight converter. It may be best to go up and ask the FS2002/FS2004 fourm how to convert FSX to FS2002/FS2004. Once you know how that can be done use MDLC to take the now FS2004 model to CFS2.

    Nothing more to add but it dose remind me that I do need to look into making fake rain. I think I could use the gMax Tick18 set up to make fake cloud and falling rain. The probs may be geting a good texture and the frame rates.

    When it comes to the 47d and 51d the pilot can lean over to get a better view than we get in the game.

    I didn't know we needed to re-make the F6F tell I saw your thread! I thought some one would have already made the side window F6F model but nope.

    Will mail. I pretty sure this is what he needs. The old MS page says it is but not 100% sure as I can't test it as I have SP3 already on my XP (did see the autoplay welcome screen that the disk wanted to install SP3) and I couldn't get the ISO from MS but the WaybackMachine is prob the next best thing as its goal is to archive web pages so unlike other places it is unlikely that the WaybackMachine would have messed with the ISO to add nasty bugs or make a fake ISO. Tell him to hold on! What he need should be on the way soon.

    I MAY have it. I did some look around and at one time MS put up SP3 update as an ISO file. An ISO is format that can be burned to a CD and when done gives you a CD and in this case it is a update CD. MS since killed the page but I jumped onto the WaybackMachine and it looks like WaybackMachine saved the SP3 update ISO. I'm donwloaded the SP3 update ISO. Its got 30 mins on the download. I know years ago I burned 2 ISOs to CDs. (Command & Conquer: Tiberium Dawn when EA made it freewere) If it dose fully download I will try to burn it to CD so it can be snail mailed. Also will post the WaybackMachine link. I'm doing the download using IE8 that should be on John PC. If not let me know as I do have the IE8 install file on my PC already. I can burn it to a data disk as well. Edit: I...

    It takes some getting use to. You could make your own but than you need to do the texture mapping your self.

    Some times somthing with MDLC just quits and best to delete it and drop in a new copy. I use the for my conversions. I have to use it a lot as I build aircraft using the FS2004 SDK for gMax. I use Mk_Mdl_Ver 2.0 http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/local_links.php?catid=49&linkid=2243 This has a nice windows interfaces. It work fine on XP but for Win7 it is uselss as main MDLC.exe has to be ran on 32 bit system so for Win7 you have to run MDLC.exe with some kind of emulator/virtual machine and do all of the work by command line.
