At this time of the year, I wish to send you all my best wishes for a merry Christmas and a happy flying new year. Good health, happiness and great success for you and your families.
I have been quite silent lately. My antique (more than 7 years old) computer died a few months ago and I had just a low end and aged laptop to survive on the net. Nothing decent for flight simulation!
Nevertheless I have not been totally inactive and I have quite a few new titbits and novelties to add to our special operations division that will allow you to discover new flight’s destinations.
As a matter of fact I have just ordered a decent new computer that will be delivered to me before the end of the year. Therefore I will be able to be fully active again for SPA. This new machine will be based around a rather powerful Intel 4 Core i7 (3.5 GHz 8Mo cache) processor and equipped with a high end Nvidia Gforce GTX graphic card. I hope that it will boost my FSX experience that was beginning to be reluctant with all its add-on overcharging my old computer.
I really look forward to being more active again!

I have no doubt Yoland from the brief description you have given that you will be more than pleased with your new computer. The description you have given sounds a bit like mine and it is super for flight simulation.
I must admit I have missed your happy face over recent months and wondered whether you were O.K. Glad to hear that it sounds as though I was wrong. I have had more problems I am sorry to say with my amputation. It just seems to go on and on.
In any event a very Happy Christmas go all.

Yes...a belated Merry Christmas to all and a wish for a happy (and healthy) New Year. I'm also glad to hear you're getting back into the swing of things Yoland and hope you have great fun with your new computer.

You may wish to consider a DX10 FSX implementation from the beginning. I'm a firm believer in the DX10 implementation, as FSX is inherently limited for taking advantage of multi-core systems. I've found that I get greatly improved performance, and with many of the fixes streamlined and well-documented by other users - setting this up need only be as complex as you wish to dig into it.

The only drawback that I've come across is some older models that are not DX10 compatible. This has been heartbreaking in some cases, so serious consideration of what planes you fly and suspect you will want to fly in the future are probably the most important consideration regarding the tradeoffs for DX9 and DX10.

I am a great fan of DX10 and the fps gain is really impressive when using a quad core chip.
I have also bought a very usefull program called DX10 scenery fixter which also convert some older aircrafts to DX10 standard.
it can be found at : http://www.flightsimstore.com/product_info.php?products_id=2630
This is what it says :
The aim of the product is to resolve the issues that cause some add on scenery to appear grey in Microsoft Flight Simulator X DX10 Preview mode. It can also assist with add on aircraft that similarly appear grey but support in this case is more limited and has limitations when it comes to night lighting.

Additionally it bundles all the DX10 fixes that have been published to the Avsim Library into a combined easy to install package. This includes the flashing runway fix, disappearing bridges fix, Virtual Cockpit shadow improvements and more.
It is sold for roughly 32 U$ and downloadable from the above site.
