  1. I have a mid-range setup also, and it works fine for me as long as I don't load lots of other scenery. I use SimStarter to limit what scenery loads. As Nick said above, a lot of the problems seem to be due to LM. Wait for the hotfix.
  2. Welcome back from one vet to another. Take it easy and listen to the docs.
  3. The John Nick was referring to was the OP in this thread.
  4. Macca, I know they are both more or less acceptable these days, but to my grandfather and Lorna's father only Mac would do.
  5. Oh, I know the history. There are MacDonalds and McDonalds, which is an Anglicized version. True descendants of the clan use the Mac.
  6. My maternal grandfather was born in Scotland, a Campbell. I dated a young lady for years during high school whose name was MacDonald. Her father, who was born in Scotland, had serious difficulties with me for a while.
  7. I am a bit more than a semi-pro photographer and do a lot of post processing. A guru I followed once told me that the only thing you should do is get the best hardware you can afford.
  8. So instead of one pair of $200 prescription glasses, I have half-a-dozen pairs of reading glasses around the house at about $3 a pair.
  9. Dusterman, does the mesh you mentioned make any difference with TEGB?
  10. Thanks. Active Sky, I believe, has an XP model. Do ou know how that compares with Ultra Weather?
  11. If the email had the name of the sim in it, as they usually do, i.e. Gatwick for X-Plane Released, you wouldn't even have to take the 3-seconds to open it. Not sure how that loss of time might affect your life, but....
  12. OK, thanks. I've got about 1.5 TB left on a drive, so it will work, I guess. I need to check to see if I have room for another SSD on my machine, that would solve it nicely.
  13. I am contemplating installing XP for TEGB only. Could someone tell me what other apps are must-haves and how much drive space is needed? Thanks.
  14. What difference does it make if she is "a lady"? Is it a surprise in this day that a woman can fly an airplane?
  15. Not sure if the update to FTXC helped or not, but after installing it and again deleting the file Doug recommended and reinstalling Base, it took about two hours to install the TEN update. The Orlando Cityscene update took less than 20 minutes.
  16. You do have the sim set to system time? The system time is correct?
  17. I'm having the same problem with the scan stopping at what appears to me about 99%. Not sure the problem is with FTXC since a number of people have the problem and for others the installation seems to go smoothly. Does the scan come before the download of the files? I can't seem to find a Temp file for it. Would uninstalling all of TENetherlands and starting over with the original work?
  18. First option if they freeze me, second any time as long as I'm on the right side of the grass or outside the freezer.
  19. Maybe that would be the way to meet Ted Willims and get some batting tips.
  20. I, too, have a leather flight jacket that I have worn for 25 years. Also, a scuffed pair of boat shoes held together with duct tape that I have worn for many years.
  21. May I ask how you transitioned it to P3D v 4.4.? Send me a PM if you wish. I loved that aircraft.
  22. John, do you use those settings for rural areas as well as the London area?
