    I haven't been able to get on since the news about Aces hit the fan.

    I guess I don't get it. Why would there be so many hits because of ACES being axed?

    I can get to the main page and the library page OK, but
    when I attempt to get to the forums I get an all white
    page with the message
    "IPS Driver Error"
    "There appears to be an error with the database."

    "You can try to refresh the page by clicking here"

    in the upper left corner.

    It's been like that for me since sometime this afternoon ( Sat. 24th )

    It was fine for me until America woke up, then it went fine again after most of Europe went to bed.

    Fortunately, I was able to get the files I needed from flightsim.com in the meantime, so I wasn't that worried. I've disliked the Avsim forums and many of its denizens for years anyway, so I only really miss it when I can't find something I need, like the patches for the default Cub and Goose to make them work better...

    (The Cub is here, but the Goose isn't.)

    Actually I had to chuckle over what I saw when I logged on to AvSim's forum mainpage...

    The first item on their news page was, of course, about ACES
    The second item was a request for someone to help, or take over managing their servers/database

    So I go to the link in the first post to read the blog and what do I get???
    The IPS database error...

    Yep!! better get a response to #2.. quick!:help:

    :kiss::kiss:

    Funny thing is, Avsim didn't have the news for many hours after we posted it already. But it seems SOH and simFlight readers and forum visitors are more level headed than those on Avsim. No panic here that I can see.

    Or maybe we just use better technology ? :gossip:

    I still can't reach the forums there either. Oh well, I'm not crazy about the new software anyway and have been spending more time here and at Flightsim.com.

    The news has been in the Avsim forum for quite a while. By the time the main news hit the front page, the forum already had multiple threads that were page after page long.

    The main page is often not updated till later it seems.

    FWIW, AVSIM has continuously upgraded/replaced their hardware over the years. The last major hardware replacement having taken place less than six months ago.

    The forum software they recently installed is a licensed, professionally coded platform. I do note that they are looking for a new Tech Manager though...
