  1. you shouldn't put ur email there, you may get spam, also toms send auto notification if ur post has been replied to
  2. ditto to what the above said about spam. not smart. second. what exactly are you asking. that post made no sense.
  3. Most of the videos you see on youtube are with all settings running at at least Ultra High, and you need a fairly beefy computer to run those settings in fsx.

    What are the specs of your current computer and what settings do you have set in FSX? Also what is the resolution of your monitor?

    This information will allow us to better help you with your problem!
  4. I have a Q6600 O/Ced to 2.8 with 8GB of DDR2 800 running on Vista x64 and an 8800GTS 512 (G92 core) and I have to have FSX with most sliders around the middle... and it still randomly hangs on me. I have been fighting this for a year and finally gave up and went back to Flight Sim 2004 (FS9).
