Re: Yet another topic about MSFS2020

there's a bit of a schoolboy/dreamer in all of us and many of us would dearly like to know if we could have handled those amazing warbirds that fought those aerial battles. We have had some ideas about that, over the years, with the A2A Mustang, P-40, P-47, Spitfire. This is not about being a dream...

Re: A2A Aviat Husky

A Stearman, a Beaver or a DC-3. Something with character. Something slightly removed from standard GA aircraft and warbirds. Something that, simply flying it is an adventure. Something with historical importance. Something that the current owners love, beyond reason or their actual value. Something...

Re: REQ GUIDENCE FOR BUYING NEW AIRCRAFT, THANKS

I’ve had the P40 since 2012 and flew her extensively but I wouldn’t recommend her as a taildragger first experience :lol: ! I would take advantage of the free offer for later flying and buy the Cub. The Albatross and Avro belong to another less refined category of products than the Accusim aircraft...

Re: Graphic Card Advice

The flight simulation landscape will be largely redefined, in 2020, by the new Microsoft simulator. The developers said that It will use the graphic card GPU in much more intensive way. So you cannot be wrong in getting yourself the strongest GPU possible and amount of VRAM according to your means. ...

Re: Microsoft no longer supporting Windows 7

I they're prepared to target so many innocent websites (that don't even store any personal data) then you can bet your life they'll be having a go at your PC at home. So so SAD. Adam. An important point, they don’t only look for personal data but also to integrate personal computers into maliciou...

Re: Microsoft no longer supporting Windows 7

I’ve waited three years to upgrade as I was not convinced that 10 would be better than 7 for my own use. I recently did it because it is unreasonable to stay with an OS which is not maintained security-wise if the computer is connected in any way to the Internet. Such computers will be the primary...

Re: Microsoft no longer supporting Windows 7

Everything is legit. You download the Media Creation Tool at microsoft.com, launch it and you let it do its business. At the end of the process, Windows is automatically activated at the level of your 7 version. All by Microsoft. Paying an upgrade 125 £ is an absurdity. I've upgraded three PCs at ...

Re: Microsoft no longer supporting Windows 7

One thing to remember is that the security updates are the most important no matter what you use your PC for. On or offline if you want your data and computer safe always get at the minimum the security updates. I'd suggest as others have that you get moved across to Win10 if it is indeed still a f...

Re: Microsoft no longer supporting Windows 7

I don’t have answer to your questions but you may like to know that the process to move from W7 to W10 is smooth and still free. You just download a module at Microsoft.com and launch it. At the end Windows is automatically activated. Nothing I have needed to be reinstalled (games, P3D with addons...

Re: Why aren't many people into warbirds?

You try to takeoff with a 172 then you try to takeoff with a P51. Have I answered your question ? Flying warbirds is an acquired taste, it is not easy even discouraging at the very beginning of a flight. You have to stick to it to discover the great feeling of accomplishment in taking a Mustang off ...

Re: Speculation on new upcoming core tech in Accusim

Sorry to be down to earth but the only question I have is how much Accusim will fit into the FS20 environment as shown in the Asobo aerodynamics and cockpit videos.

Re: What was the date of the last A2A release?

As much as I'd love to have the Cub in P3Dv4, I wouldn't be surprised if it was put on hold until the MSFS release... OK, enough of the speculation. I hate to say it but that was my first thought when I read the announcement about PMDG. It's bad enough that the P3Dv4 Cub has gone from "any minute n...

Re: When will A2A tackle this?

I found that my purchase was filed onto my disk in December 2012 and that they have a version 2.1 now. So it may be better than it was then. EDIT A funny followup. Checking my email account I found that PC Aviator sent me a link to upgrade to v2 two years ago that I had filed and forgotten. I will ...
