I have a quick question:

When im playing FSX in Vista, I cant play it in full screen mode!
Especially when i try and go from windowed mode by pressing Alt Enter. It just locks up and crashes.

Any ideas?

http://www.avsim.com is about the best. Just sign up at the file library, its free.

http://www.simviation.com/ and http://www.surclaro.com/ are pretty good too.

Many of the payware developers offer freeware at their sites as well. If you look back through this thread I posted a big list of their freeware pages.

Not that I know of. It should use the refresh rate specified in the driver as far as I know.

I have two "1980x1080x32" resolutions in the settings and I was guessing that one is for 50Hz and the other 60Hz but strangely both run with 60Hz. FSX is the only game that seems to force 60Hz or simply ignores the 50Hz mode/resolution.

I searched the forum at Avsim.com for you and couln't find the answer. I know there has been some talk of Vista/Nvidia issues though.

You should hear the soundset that comes with the Plane Design Merlin Spitfire. Its sooo sweet. I have even aliased my Shockwave P-51D to that particular soundset.

I would argue FSX looks considerably better.
