Is it me or all the Flight scandal it is disappearing

Postby alrot » Thu Apr 19, 2012 5:42 pm

It could be me ,but has any one else noticed that in this past days all the Flight talking has lower down?

Or maybe its just this site

But to be honest, what can people could talk about ,Repaints?

Is it too early to say I was wrong when I said 6 months?   :P :-X

IF, as you say, the tide of protests is receding, there can be only ONE reason. I think people are simply tiring to speak about a thing that in no way can begin to answer to their needs and expectancies.

By going over to Prepar3d (or whatever is called) or X-plane, or whatever other SIMULATOR out there, or even for the moment electing to remain with the actual simulator they own, I guess life continues.

There's a saying where I live: graveyards are chock full of indispensable people... and software too, I feel to append in this occasion. Shame no one ever told M$ this proverb. They could have avoided cobbling together yet another failure.

I would love to see some financial stats on what Flight cost and what Flight has profited. Until then, I continue to feel sorry for the developers that were forced to go the route that MS suits pushed them. In the best of the software society, you would hire the best talent, and stand back and watch them work. Let things develop and see what they come up with. NOT put up your own dream and ask someone to write it in less than two years.

I think it's simply  because what had to be said  has already be said  many times  over. 

When you'r disapointed  with something,  you lose intertest  in it quickly.

The game does not interest me, so therefor I no longer comment. I only post in this as I saw the thread title as I opened up the forum main window.

2. And, if you have time to write the fault on a napkin and attach to it to the yoke.........you have time to write it in the tech log....see point 1.

I now know your problem with FSX fozzer!
You run it at max,while even at about half settings it looks better then FS9!


Jet... ;)...!

Pop round to my place, and I will give you a demonstration of both my FS 2004 and my FSX running on my computer, over the same area of scenery, and you will definitely see the difference...

...trust me!... ;D...!

Dinner provided...(Perhaps).. ;)...!

If I can find the time and the patience, I will post comparison shots of the two Sims running...that should finally convince you.. ;)...!

Paul...progressed from FS '98, Sim by Sim, through to FSX... 8-)...!

By the way...I never have any problems with my FS 2004 version...or the hardware to run it...can you say the same?... ;D...!

Paul, have you updated FSX to SP2? This makes a big improvement in performance.

Yep, Andy...

Been there, done it all since day one, lost patience, decided that life is far too short for so much daily messing about!... ;).. ;D..!

With all my fantastic bits and bobs, both payware and freeware, added to my FS 2004 over the years, means that I can run the whole Sim flat-out, with dense scenery spreading way out into the far distance all around me, (and not popping up in chunks, as I approach it)!
It really is, quite amazing now!...It has to be seen, to be believed!
(...and dont forget all my special/vital FS 2004 programs: LAGO FSE and FS Navigator, etc, which are not available for FSX!).

I just fire up my Sim every morning, and have FUN, with a BIG smile on my FS 2004 face!... ;D... ;D...!
..and everything runs perfectly, with no fiddling about!

Paul...a Very Old Flight Simmer!... ;D...!

P.S...don't try and "convert" me!... ;D... ;D... ;D...!

Fozzer, you've just made me install fs9 again! Why...
1. I've got a dvd full with planes and addons.
2. Your constant publicity department.
3. Comparing with fsx.
