    Cheers, Rob - I vaguely remember fiddling with this, ages ago, using a set of shaders I got off Andy(?) - so not the original RS ones anyway. I did the 'previous versions' bit, and it's gone. Never mind...

    I thought of shaders - as far as I know, they're as issued, but they equally may very well not be. I'll take a look. In any case, I'm nowhere near Turkey - in MAW, I had this off the Libyan coast and around Malta. In RS, Hawaii. The Z bias sliders are set to the values used in the "enabling high resolution textures" tutorial from GC. <ZBiasBitsResolution val="22"/> <ZBiasTerrainDecal val="0"/> <ZBiasWaterPolyNear val="1"/> <ZBiasWaterPolyFar val="0"/> <ZBiasWaterLineNear val="1"/> <ZBiasWaterLineFar val="0"/>

    Er... Forgive me if I'm being thick or something, but from time to time in MAW, and so far all the time in RS, the sea turns out to look like dry land... I'm using only the WOFF shaders30 package, and none of the other bits such as SweetFX or ENB. Any ideas what's gone wrong? Bit beyond me, all this... Here I am, out at sea. Not very naval. The second one is in the same place, on another flight, and indicates that I have a conflict between my own land texture files and the stock ones, but that shouldn't turn the sea into land!

    That's right - we do need one for the early French models. So far, I've managed to get round the problem by doing only later batch or upgraded aircraft. Then in order to get a correct RAF/SAAF MkIV, we need the Cyclone-engined version. The Finns also used that one (A-6 mainly) but because of the cooling problems, they converted them back to the earlier standard with Twin Wasp engines.

    Daniel, that's news to me about the missing nose guns, and none of my sources say anything like it. However, the first batch of 100 to arrive were the A-1 type with cowl guns but only one gun in each wing, as were a further 41 (?), so maybe that's where the idea came from. They were delivered unarmed in any case, although they were fitted with the appropriate brackets, cables, etc. The French fitted 7.5mm FN Brownings in the bays, so largely similar to everydody else's rifle-calibre machine-guns. The only other thing I can think of is that he's also got the A-4 type muddled in - the A-4, A-6 and others had a Cyclone R-1820-G205A instead of the Twin Wasp of the A-1/2/3 types. It had a different design of cowl, and the guns were no longer in twin fairings above the cowl, but hidden by...

    Well, that baby has gone out with the bathwater! I deleted the shortcuts to My Music, etc, because if I can't open them on my own machine over which I have full rights, then they're no bloody use to anybody. The libraries folder now has only direct-access files in it - wait and see if I bother to learn how the rest works!

    I've just added Ankor's mod to MAW, and good grief, it's impressive! The light effects inside the cockpit are incredible - I'd never realised the extent to which they were missing. I have not added any other mods, or touched any of the aircraft, beyond enabling specularity gloss in shaders.xml; this has made the aircraft a bit too shiny, some even far too shiny! And the sea goes very dark on the horizon when you're low down. These are certainly known problems! Overall - it really is getting there! Huge well deserved thanks to Ankor and Andy and everybody else involved in making CFS3 better!

    Hm. Not convinced... I've got it doing more or less what I want, right-click context menus, proper quick launch bar, classic Windows appearance, etc, so now the next target is this dreadful Documents folder which seems to consist only of shortcuts to things I don't have access to... Why do simple when you can do complicted?

    Thanks! I finally found that one out... Done. And I've spend half the evening messing about with Regedit adding right-click context menu options, such as "Edit with Photoshop" - those who know me will understand how essential that one is. In XP, it took seconds to set up.

    This bloody W7 system is moronic. I can't do half the things I used to do with XP, the context menu doesn't work, none of the "extract here" functions in the context menu work in the right hand part of Explorer so instead of highlighting a load of files and clicking "extract here" you have to do them one by one while clicking on them in the left hand panel of Explorer, all this arsing about with permissions is driving me mental as it's my flaming computer and if I want to kak it up, that's my problem, and I'VE HAD MY BLOODY LOT! If anybody knows how to make this nanny-state abortion sufficiently user-friendly that I don't have to show my ID every time I want to install or change a program, please tell me...

    True, but it might leave me able to leave both HDDs plugged in all the time, so I can get at files which are on the other drive. At the moment, I've got the two system drives and a third shared one.

    I gave up on W7 because it doesn't do CFS3 as nicely as XP (yet...) but want W7 for SF2. So I had to find a work-around, and IT WORKS! That may not surprise you, but it does me. I had to install XP in IDE mode, because there are no H/Z87 AHCI drivers for XP, or so I thought. Actually, there may be, but post-installing them could be amusing. W7 needs to be installed in AHCI mode to get it working perfectly, so I've now got two separate hard drives, and plug in the one I want, and alter the BIOS setting accordingly. As long as I set it right, it works. No idea what happens if I leave them both plugged in... XP will BSOD in AHCI mode, in any case. Will EasyBCD help here, or is it simply going to get in the way?
