    It is good that we are all entitled to our own opinion. :untroubled: I have been using a multi-screen setup for the past 8 years and would not want to go back to a single screen, no matter how big. Again each their own. Thank goodness we are not all the same :encouragement:

    Doesn't it sound like a push "back"? Ah, I don't feel pushed at all :biggrin-new:

    Thanks for the feedback. Now I am really starting to get the urge to just go ahead and upgrade. Might wait two more weeks though, as I got a long weekend all by myself coming up, and I want to spend it flying, not tweaking after upgrading. I am sure I will run into some unexpected glitches getting everything work over the network again.

    And realism is what makes developments stand out from the pack. Even with things as simple as the direction of the levers. It would take away a lot of the fun flying different aircraft if they would all work the same. You could always add a little "Note" in the readme file relating to the mixture lever. Oh sorry, how dumb of me...who ever RTFM, or even a readme file. Us men always think we already know it all :mixed-smiley-027:

    Why not add two more 22" monitors, and create a wideview setup. Your graphics card can handle it easily. Even 3 monitors in wideview, and one below it for the gauges is no problem for that card,

    Nope sorry. I don't have that one. You might have better luck asking in the FS2004 section. Not sure it made it out in FSX. :ernaehrung004:

    Maybe articles/books from Captain Mike Ray are of interest to you. All his work is written with a sense of humor, making it fun to read. (be aware, thy can become addictive, :victorious:) I have all his articles, and several book, and I keep coming back to them frequently. Look here: Specially the $1 download section has some very interesting articles,

    I really like that top image. You've done a really nice job of conveying that it wasn't just skinned with one piece of aluminum. You've got slight variations in adjacent panels which is spot on. A little less reflection though as you mentioned. That's not easy to do with metal in FS and not make it just look like shades of gray paint. People like the special schemes (so do I sometimes) and I did several for the original FS9 release with David adding even more for the FSX remake, but there's something really nice about a plain jane "let's-get-the-job-done-and-try-to-make-it-home" scheme. Very pleased to see this bird getting continued attention. :ernaehrung004:

    Thanks for the feedback Larry, I used to use FSCoPilot for multiplayer sessions, but the server we used has recently been taken down. That's why I have started doing the direct connect. I will certainly have a look into FS Host.

    Overclocking a 970 ore above for FSX?? That somehow doesn't make sense to me. For FSX scenery the amount of memory on the graphics card is more important. A 970 or 980 is already so fast, that I would not bother overclocking those cards. And I must say that the factory overclocked versions can not be beat.

    Tom, thanks for your feedback. Are you using the upgrade, or did you perform a clean install of Windows 10? Wondering if sharing disks and folders onver the network works similar as to Windows 7? I don't use an email client. I manage them online (gmail), so that is not an issue for me.

    Okay, I did a search online, and the only things I found is an old post stating the FSX-SE will not work with a direct connect multiplayer session from FSX boxes. and one on the Steam site stating that with one of their patches "compatibility issues" were resolved. In short, what I need to know is the following. Is it possible to direct connect FSX SE to a FSX hosted multiplayer session, and vice-versa? One of my friends want's to get FSX SE to join multiplayer sessions that I host using direct connect with another flight simmer. Any information is highly appreciated.

    Well, my Flight simulator computer is still running Windows 7, but since yesterday it states that windows 10 is ready for install. I am still worried what it will do with my FSX and network settings, as I run multiple add-ons and related software on a networked computer.

    I'd say it is "Pinoccio", one of several DC-3s modified with F-104 noses (Canada had one for sure, and I believe Germany did as well), used to train F-104 pilots on how to operate the F-104s fire control radar... Kent
