    Hmm, I have known about the DX10 Fixer from the early release, but never even considered it due to comp issues w DX10. Your post certainly is making me rethink if I should give it a try (even after 4 years, lol).

    Another great creating! I did the switch for Orbx, and it blends in just fine. Thanks for all your efforts.

    Willy, I am trying to find the fix file, but when I click on the link then I get the error that the link does not exists. Am I doing anything wrong?

    Very excited to read that the C model will be made first. Many operators and thus many repaint opportunities. In addition to the many French squadrons there was Greece as already mentioned (F1CG), Jordan (F1CJ), Kuwait (F1CK), Morocco (F1CH), South Africa (F1CZ), and Spain (F1CE). Good times are coming. :ernaehrung004:

    Thanks for the link Mike. Had seen that name, but thought it was another repaint. Downloading now. Will give it a go over the weekend :jump:

    Steering/turning the proper way takes practice, but once you have it down, it's a great experience.

    Paints are looking very nice, but I have not been able to find the actual aircraft in the library. What am I missing here?

    Yes, that's how you truly learn how to do it. But if you want a head start, here is Michael's tutorial resaved in pdf format. Hope this helps. :ernaehrung004:

    Jan, I am loving the "radioluminescent painted gauge dials". Nice to see the progress on the night lighting.

    I agree. I only buy during sales. But at a discount it is worth getting especially since the patch. :ernaehrung004:

    I recall taking an online survey once for aptitude to be a pilot. Whether you had other experience or not, if you answered "Yes" for using Flight Simulator your score went down. Apparently they had it in the "game" category rather than "sim". :ernaehrung004:

    I just opened the SOH home page for the first time today, and my heard skipped a beat when I saw this (at least I hope it was only one beat). It brings back memories that literally brought tears to me eyes. I watched this graceful lady fly so low over our house that we could actually see the markings clearly. I was only a little kid standing outside our house with my father as the engine sounds gave me "kippevel" (goose bumps). A few years later we went to an airshow and this same bird made it's appearance. It was my first experience stepping in to an actual D-3. Pictures taken that day were lost in a house fire several years later, so all I have left are my memories. Okay I am off to take a flight to memory lane, just can't wait :redfire:

    This thread is an interesting read. I have FSX A running on a dedicated computer, with FTX Global/Vector/OpenLC for scenery improvement. I have the PMDG 737NGX running smooth, and fly that in a multiplayer session every Saturday with no issues. Over the years I have developed a specific routine when performing a clean install. My last clean install was last January, after 3 years of running FSX. The clean install was initiated after deciding to give windows 10 a chance. No regrets so far. For the clean install I stick with a document I compiled, using my own experiences, as well as suggestions from Flight sim "guru's" that can be found on diverse forums. My computer specs are: PC 1:
