    It's been a LONG time since the TVA days, but as I remember it, FSHost can be configured to be invisible to FSHostSpy. This is to keep out the kiddies that just like to come into a multiplayer session and just harass other pilots. If you want to fly, head over to Sim-Outhouse (dot) net and you'll find the server info there. Just remember that the same rules that the same rules regarding respect and courtesy here also apply there.

    Thanks for your reply NC. If I had known the heart ache win 10 was going to cause, I never would have upgraded. I spent almost 3 hours on the phone last night with a MS rep before I got it sorted out, and had to eat some crow afterward. I've been running Bitdefender antivirus the last few years, and upgraded to what was supposed to be a win 10 compatable version. Unfortunately it is not. It was blocking some elements of windows which really screwed things up. I disabled Bitdefender and everything worked fine. I removed it and installed MS Trend. Now everything works again, and at a much faster speed than before. I can't blame win 10 for that problem. I can however blame myself for changing everything and not having time to sort out the problems. Now maybe I can actually spend some time in...

    Guys, I haven't posted in a while. Real life has been hard lately. I cranked my computer up tonight and thought I might fly for a few. Last time it worked.... Thanks Windows 10. FSX won't start now. A window tells me that my graphics card is not compatible. It says I need a g force 3/Radeon 8500 or better to run. Funny as hell to me because until I updated to 10 I never had a problem. Thanks MS... Has anyone else run into this, and how do I fix it? I can't even get online on my laptop now. I'm getting ready to pull my files off if it and throw it in the backyard. Uuuugggghhhh!

    That t-prop version looks like it's right up my alley! It fits my money-is-no-object fantasy of a floating twin t-prop that's big enough to turn into a floating RV. I wonder how hard it would be to fit a water purification system to turn lake water into water for cooking and showers...

    Please understand that freeware is not only free of cost to the users, it is also made in the developer's "free" time. The only time you could possibly have the right to pester a developer about a release date is if you had paid money in advance as part of an agreement for commissioned work. We all eagerly await Milton's releases, but we also understand that Milton has a life and can't spend every waking moment pushing polygons around.

    No problem Pete - whenever you're able. The deadline is mid-Feb, so the first of the month will be plenty of time. :encouragement:

    If it's not in the Scenery Library list, and you've removed the scenery folder from the Addon Scenery directory, then there must still be something in the Addon Scenery\Scenery folder. Anything there loads automatically without having to be added to the library list.

    A couple of years ago, I was taking my (now ex) wife to work one morning. When we passed by a local sandwich shop, she noticed that the glass door had been smashed. 45 minutes later as I was driving back home, the glass was still scattered and the police apparently hadnít responded. I pulled into the parking lot and called the police to report the break-in. I was told at that time that I was the first to report it. Think about that for a minuteÖ This shop was on one of the busiest stretches of one of the busiest roads in Greensboro. If only 10% of the thousands of people who had driven by had actually seen it, thatís still hundreds of people that had driven by and done nothing, assuming that somebody else would make the call. The problem is that if everyone assumes that someone else will...

    I was looking through the latest uploads at Flightsim, and spotted something among all of the Airbus repaints. Don't know if it's new, but the write-up makes me think it is: http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/fslib.php?do=search&fsec=0&fname=giu_beaufighter_mkic.zip

    OK people - it's that time again! You may have noticed a strange blue/red line at the top of every page. That's not there for decoration! Everyone here enjoys all the free downloads and free membership, but guess what? This site, despite what you might think, does NOT come cheap to its owners. How many other FS sites can you name that have anywhere near as much to offer without putting ads in your face on every page? I don't know about you, but I can't think of a single one! This annual donation drive is what keeps the lights on year after year. If you can't do $10 and you live in the States, you can snail-mail a paper check to Ickie - see this thread: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?91752 So... What do I get in return??? You mean besides the warm fuzzies you...
