  1. Welcome to the forum(s). Probably the best way to determine this is to try it on your computer and see what happens. Lockheed has a 14-day refund period. If it doesn't work to your satisfaction you can get a refund (be sure though to buy it directly from them). See https://www.prepar3d.com/support/refundpolicy/ . But (there is always one of those) there is no way you can run PMDG aircraft. They are just too demanding. Much will depend on which CPU you have and the resolution of your monitor. If you can share those with us it would help.
  2. Read the comments by Tim and Maurizio in the January 2019 thread. I don't think things are any different now. But what do I know, I'm just a customer.
  3. What's changed between January 2019 and now? It was a bad idea then and it's still a bad idea now.
  4. My daddy taught me that if it won't move and it should, use WD40. And, if it moves and it shouldn't, use duct tape. So..........I vote for fixing what's broke.
  5. I'm glad to see this post. Like chumley I didn't know anything had changed............
  6. Darn. You're right Ed. I've never seen any fall color in Florida but it looks like I just haven't been in the right places at the right times these past 20 years. I did a quick look around the web and found out that I didn't know what I was talking about. I Learn something new every day...........Doug
  7. Just FYI, there are no fall colors here in Florida. Maybe a fix is needed?
  8. Thanks guys. I'm probably too old for all the X-Box stuff but I was just curious as to how it worked.................Doug
  9. I didn't think Epcot looked too bad but all of downtown Orlando is missing....................
  10. How do you fly an airplane with an X-Box controller? I know nothing about X-Boxes. Can other controllers, e.g., a joystick be added/used?..........Doug
  11. There's a sticky in the General Discussion forum that explains it:
  12. Good on ya. Glad to see all is now well. Yep, the new stuff takes a bit more disc space (but it's worth it).
  13. I don't think it is enough. You need space for the download, the extraction, and the installation. As I recall that's around 230GB. Nick answered this the other day and if I can find the post I'll come back and give you the link. I know there is a work-around if you have another drive and how to do that is also in Nick's post.
  14. I bought it too. I live in Florida and was really excited. But then it killed my computer. I installed it and the computer just died. Belly-up. Kaput. Fini. Gone to computer heaven. But, that said, that installation had nothing to do with the computer problem. My trusty old 4790K has been giving me fits for a couple of weeks and it just finally quit. So...I'll have to wait for the new parts to arrive next week before I can see just how good I know Florida TE will be. Sigh.......Doug P.S. Here's what I just ordered: 10700K, RTX 2060 Super, ASUS ROG Maximus Hero Z490, and 32GB Corsai
  15. Backup and recovery is MUCH easier with the OS on it's own drive/partition.
  16. I think you were a bit premature.............
  17. Of course everyone is entitles to their own opinion(s). But it's not the opinion but that bothers me - it's the way it was presented. The attitude shown isn't going to get him/her very far.
  18. I just read a thread started by some newbie who's moaning and complaining about what he/she perceives as some sort of inadequate response from the staff regarding the MSFS 2020 London POI add-on. Somebody needs to explain to him/her that he/she is talking down to one of the best design teams in the world and that Orbx customer support is the best in the business. Do I sound pissed? If so it's because I am. I don't own the product but I know that whatever the issue is it'll get fixed and to have somebody bitch and moan like that about what appears to be a really minor issue is more than I can b
  19. I see it now Nick. Thanks. I must have had another brain fart.........Doug
  20. Just bought it from the link in the Announcements forum. Problem is it doesn't show in either Orbx Central or the store. Gone missing? Not available for download yet?..........Doug Operating system: Simulator: Screenshot: Issue:
