    This is just one of the reasons to keep FS9 installed. I have a standard version of FS9, Golden Wings and Silver Wings installed. They all run very smooth. Over the years I have been able to improve the looks (mainly with freeware!), that there are some areas which I think look better in my FS9 installs than they do in my reasonably modified FSX.

    The fact FS9 is less complicated makes me fly FS9 currently far more than FSX.

    It is really nice to see this one will also have his upgrade for FS9 as it absolutely belongs in Silver Wings.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    As far as I know, Bernie uses FSX, but models to FS9 standards in FSDS, so porting it over will be easy enough.


    I've sent him my 580 upgrade source file a while ago and recognize some bits from it in his model. Time permitting, I'd do the reverse and at least try to finish the job.
