  1. Not yet Nick, I printed out Johns post back in May and totally forgot about it, I'll revisit it. Thanks.
  2. I've been sitting on the sidelines for about a year, haven't even been flying much since May. I signed up for Orbx Direct and turned my attentions to other matters for the summer but was tracking all E-Mail notifications and checking in on any post regarding the DVD to D/L license transfers. Back in May I also made a complete list of every Orbx product I have (a lot, about half on DVD) and a separate lists of all DVD and existing D/L products with copies of all key info from all receipts from the "my account" histories on FSS, PCA US and PCA AU. I then sat back and waited for the dust to settle. I've read through the instructions posted and did not see FlightSimStore on the list of authorized resellers. I suspect there Is some other process I will need to address for my FSS purchases (and this is where the lion's share of my Orbx DVD purchases were made)? Thanks in advance.
  3. I could be wrong but as far as I can tell CPU speed and video card performance hit the wall many years back, doesn't seem to be anything brewing that will change that for the foreseeable future. The manufacturers keep repackaging and fancifying but for no real gains, especially given the age of the MSFS base platform. How long have we been stuck at 4.3 to 5Ghz speed? And that usually requires fancy forced air or liquid cooling solutions and with the higher operating voltages could come shortened hardware lifespans. That being said, I get dam good performance with my old rig and Orbx products, it's just a matter of being realistic about settings and balancing things out. Reasonable traffic, water and LOD settings seem to be the key to getting a smooth ride for me. With the cfg settings I use, and locking at 30FPS I averaged between 29 and 30 around KFHR today. With the exception of the usual burp I get with my Nvidia card and PAPI lights when they first come into view, it's all good flying.
  4. Well, looks like August last year when I last posted. When FTX Central 3 came up I was getting involved in a non-flight sim project. Too much to bite off at the same time.The other project is completed so I can return to simming again. At this point I'm studying the "How to use OrbxDirect and FTXCentral V3 - a step by step guide" and thinking on how to keep track of and manage the regions I purchased on CD until I figure out what to do about them. Got a ton of planes and other flight sim related software to upgrade as well I'm sure. I've also got to re-train myself on everything. Looks like my summer's gonna' be a busy one with Orbx/FTX.
  5. You want sloped? I haven't flown the Snake River Canyon area in Idaho (hopping from one strip to the next) in a while ( I like making this run in the winter for some reason) but I remember some strips being very sloped? 1 or 2 I found impossible (for me) to land on the downhill side even with A2A J3 Tundra, I run out of runway/strip. Or are we talking addon AP's only being flat?
  6. That's outrageous, I love it! What plane is it, can't see it on that page?
  7. I found one of my (many) backups of this livery. It's called "ROBO" trike texture, the livery's author is a "Repaint by Goober". I have the texture file and cfg entry but to be honest I did not create this file and don't know if its okay to distribute it legally. Also, Not sure where or how I'd post it if I knew it was okay to freely distribute.
  8. It's been a while, I'll have to research it for you. I've got a suspicion I picked it up on AVSIM.
  9. I was zoomed out too far, also, I run LOD at Default which gives me a big bump in perf so I can run high levels of autogen, etc.
  10. FSX Accel Boxed Not sure if mine is correctly displaying or not.

  11. Now that FTXC2 is managing all Regions, APs and Global OLC simultaneously we no longer have to do any more switching for any reason on the front page of FTXC when installing any products or updates, OR running Vector, right? I'm installing the small updates to KTEX and KSEZ, followed by the ENG SP5 (1.50) and then the OLC NA (Complete) today. I've got it all DL'd / extracted / and backed up at this point (only taken about 3 hours to get to this far!). I keep thinking about the various Regions, Global, etc. listed on the left side of the front page of FTXC2 and after years of going through a number of steps before doing these updates and new installs with the old Central (to make sure it all went right) it feels like I'm forgetting something, LOL!
  12. Yep. The jpg images I posted above were directly attached using the: Drag files here to attach, or choose files... Max total size 4MB at the bottom of the Reply box. (Most folks know this but FWIW: FSX takes screenshots in bmp format so they must be edited and saved as jpg before attaching to reduce the size)
  13. Forgot to mention, I'm boxed FSX Accel version, no other version(s) on my box.
