Hey, so when I 1st put my comp together and installed FS9 and my usual addons, i could get 60+ FPS easy with a quality payware plane and fairly decent scenery (no trafficpackage but default traffic set to 100%) and all graphic settings maxed out. But after I added an internet conection (with AVG 9 P...

Ive just got this annoying problem, when I move the joystick throttles only engine one responds. both respond when I use F1 F2 etc... this has happened before it fixed itself for some reason. I have a cyborg X twin throttle joystick. before both engines were controlled by one throttle (which I didnt...

Re: SLi?

It is possible to do that, although it is recommended that both cards are identical in every way. In the same way that you can SLi 2 different 8*** cards, and have them both run at the slowest card's speed. Are both these cards you are looking at the same speed (ie without factory overclocks)? I ha...

Re: New computer system

That sounds good. A few remarks: - If you are going for an E8*** processor, go for the E8400 or even the E8200. They are basically the same processor but Intel clock them at different speeds. If you are planning on overclocking (which you should be if you are getting that processor), an E8200 has b...

Re: Is it a virus?

It could be time to wipe the HDD and reinstall windows, it might save alot of headaches. Make sure you have all your important data backed up so if the worst happens, then theres no worries.

Ive heard about this before, quite an interesting route to be honest, I always thought it was Air france that was part of it although I could be wrong. I think the A318 looks cute in BA colours :lol:

Neither. Microsoft doesn't produce FS9 anymore, let alone previous versions. But Office Max doesn't have this simulator laying around. It's with other CD games that aren't produced anymore.

According to Manchester Airport, the fees in question are £3 ($5) per passenger.
Given Ryanairs strange cost cutting schemes, and hidden charges, I think Ryanair wont be happy until the fees are down to half a crown... (or 30p) :laugh:
