I'm interested in the approximately 17 percent performance gain the DX10 code path brings to FSX, which is why I mentioned it.

As opposed to having to wait until sp2 is released to enjoy the performance gain and new features. I say that because sp2 won't be released untill a little while after the xpack is released. It will problably be 3 or 4 weeks after guessing from what I've read.

And on a side note, I've mentioned the Red Bull Series racing in San Diego last weekend. With no further introduction I present, the Red Bull carrier launch.

And here is a run where the pilot pulls 9.6 g's. Imagine weighing 9.6 times your body weight.

Look at this vid, notice Kirby Chambliss almost hovering next to a helo in the beginning.

Wonder if these guys see motion blur? Problably not, it problably all happens in slow motion for them.

This video shows a pilot destroy a pylon, and it's shot in some beautiful scenery.

You do realise that for a simulation around 25 fps is actually the accepted norm right?

We're Done!
Acceleration is now done (the English version and we have 7 more languages to get out the door) and my stress level has dropped to very reasonable levels! This has been a great project with some ups and downs, but mostly just ups. I'm very proud of what we have created and I really believe you're going to enjoy it.

Now I can focus on designing FS11 which I've been working on part-time for awhile.
FS11 is already under construction!

You get to intercept a UFO with the F/A-18 as well. That should be fun.

If Phil doesn't make his post soon I think I'll be forced to kill some kittens.

Nah, just kiddin'. Getting the xpack on the 23d is all I wanted to know. But I am curious regarding Phil's Sp2 post.
