I saw a clip of you guys last month and I have to say it impressed me a lot! Awesome skills and control. Im a big LOMAC fan myself and was messing around with close formation flight manoeuvres (the "TopGun canopy" one for instance) with AI planes but failed miserably.

The simulator itself is again top-notch like all previous FS releases, a great tool to train flying or just fly for fun around the world because the flight behaviour of all the different aircrafts, when judging from my own real flying experience, is definitely as real as it gets.

Can't wait for the DX10 patch
VERY VERY NICE PICTURES!!

I have two problems with X so far:

1) It runs much more choppy than he demo. A major bummer.

2) The light hang glider aircraft had some basic instruments (altimeter, compass) in the demo. There gone in the final version.

This is a game that is begging for a tweak guide. Help someone! I'm not running the latest (by any stretch) but I do have a P4 3.2 with 1.5GB ram and a 9800 w/256 ram.

Next slide please ........

I got it this afternoon but they only had the standard version. What am I missing by having just the standard?

So if you can, shop aorund and see where the best deal is. I know i didn't...but then again i got it early so I really cant complain. But still..20 bucks difference. I was so angry when I found out.
Geez, I paid $49.99 for the standard version. I guess I'll go by Circuit City and get the Deluxe version also.

Ya that was in the ad on sunday. I checked their websites today and they had gone up so the ad must of been a misprint.


@slawter, that first water shot is amazing. One thing I am glad I can do is water on full detail. It makes a huge difference even if I can't turn any other detail on full.
