  1. Thank you all for your kind words, you know it hasn't changed, still the same very kind gentlemen on here. Thanks again guys. For Iain and Taph. You know I never thought I'd say this being a true rugby mad fan. As I lay in bed, getting woken at 4am by the nurse or my wife, I wondered how to fill in time until daylight. I had bought a mobile phone and listened to a few overseas stations then came across one that soccer was being commentated on. Every morning I listened in, and it turned out to be Talk Sport, UK. Since then I have joined Manchester United, get newsletters etc, really enjoying it. But you both have to keep this a secret.
  2. Thank you Brad, at least you are one friendly name I remember.
  3. Hello, Kia Ora. To all my friends who are still active. The last time I was on here was roughly 3-4 yrs ago. Oh how things have changed, for the better too. Because I don't have a great memory now ( 80 yrs old is closing quick), I have to ask, how do I find my scenery that I bought right back to 2008 when FSX first started. I now have a new computer, have not tried to download anything and bought FSX:SE. Any help will be really appreciated as I'm flying blind.
  4. Chumley. A couple or so weeks ago, I got stuck into Tasmania. What fun. Even though I'm a Kiwi I had never heard of Flinders Island etc. I had an absolute ball flying around there. I hope others read this and head on down to this beautiful place, great fun to be had. I'd really like to sit back and chat to you Chum but gotta close down now as we have 5 wonderful hours of watching these pesky Ozzies get put in their place by the AB's (both women and men)
  5. As I have written elsewhere in this forum lately, please add world known cricket and rugby grounds. As I am a fanatic for the above sports, but to be fair, I should throw in soccer grounds too. Thanks too for the mention of race courses. Jim
  6. I apologise but hope you will allow this to stay, as I have asked on Steam but no replies. I bought through DLC, on Steam, the program 'moving map'. I haven't been able to get it to work yet. Can someone tell me, does it work as designed? and is it the same as the original which was sold separately. I did write to the company, their response didn't help at all. Many thanks, Jim
  7. Just a small comment from a sports addict. If at all possible could you please add in the famous sports grounds we hear about down-under, but probably will never see. eg Lords, Edgbaston?, Twickers, the famous race tracks etc. Jim
  8. Hello Theveyre. Welcome to the best forum on the planet. I know once you get these teething problems out of the way, you really are going to enjoy yourself. We have two top advises in Nick and Doug. There are others too who are extremely good and will help you in a flash. Actually, I must apologise for not answering your question earlier. Was it PayPal you wanted to use? No, Orbx prefers other companies. Unless another member can suggest another way, then you will have to make changes your end. All the very best, don't forget to look at the frebees as they are wonderful quality at a great price. Regards Jim.
  9. Oh great, thanks for the HU Richard. I'll have a look at that tomorrow. ( late to bed last night after watching the AB's beat those pesky Ozies into submission. Jim.
  10. I realise this has been available for a while but due to unavoidable reasons I have just come across it. I want to thank Orbx for the extension of free sceneries that are now available. To those of you who have just joined or are thinking about joining us have a look at the free scenery. I don't know of any other company who does this and gives a discount to seniors and schoolkids too, I believe. Thanks for your generosity, Orbx. Jim.
  11. If frame rates is ever an issue Colin, try AfS2. It may not have been around last time you were on. Regards, Jim
  12. Yes Ray, just what direction to take is a very hard decision. Coming from a remote country, a remote area within that country makes decisions even harder. I would give anything to see AFS2 through the VR glasses as that no doubt would make my mind up instantly, going on what people have written about the breath-taking scenery through VR. I really don't know what path to concentrate on. I'll just wait and see and keep reading I think. Regards, Jim.
  13. Hi Yen. Glad you are enjoying it all. Orbx scenery is the best scenery IMHO. I personally don't use anything else. With regards to GA fliers, yes there are a lot of members who like GA flying, including yours truly. Nothing better in my opinion. A good scenery to get is PNG. There are a number of airfields to find and it gives a good chance to use GE too. Find a good GA aircraft if you haven't already, low and slow. Have fun. JimNZ
  14. Freebird, I agree with you. I really enjoy having to find cockies or other small airports/airstrips. Jean-Jacques, thank you for the help. It worked a peach, thanks. Jim......JimNZ
  15. Thank you Matteo. In a word, this is called 'dedication'. You deserve all the plaudits you get. Well done. Jim......JimNZ
