Final setup. Many flights no software crashes.

latestfssetup

After many tests to try and figure out how to use flight simulator 2004 without the program crashing on finals I think I found a way.

 

FS9 is not compatible with Win 7 and I just could not use it when I never knew if it would crash or not so measures had to be taken.

 

I found a old computer and did a new install of Win XP and FS9. I installed the same add on scenery and my fav Flight1 ATR-72 500. A complicated plane for any computer to run. But it works in XP and not Win 7. I can still crash the FS software if I open and close a lot of windows. Suspect memory leak somewhere.

 

If I keep to the 3D cockpit and open the windows I need once it is really good. I have made many flights now and no crashes.

 

But I wanted to use my Win 7 machine to so I bought Wideview again. I used to have a license but I have no idea where it is. It is a great piece of software. I use it to run a second copy of FS9 on my work machine. It makes FS9 run in slew mode and that do not crash the software. So here I have two side views. Great for taxi and looking out when flying. I cant see other VATSIM traffic on the side views. For that I have to use FSX I suspect and I have to buy a second copy of it. That will be my next project as soon as I get my wings on VATSIM.

  • Back in to Sansar. Today Bryn Oh.

    Visited An evening at the Ballet by Bryn Oh. Not easy to find something you like. Bryn Oh is one of my fav artists in SL and she do not dissapoint. Like several tableau with a strong feeling of being in the theatre. I liked it.

     

    Visited some other nice places but the feeling of being alone is creeping up on you. When i visited Astro Port there was a avatar just standing there and when in VR that is just scary.

  • The quality of things in Second life.

    Visited the beach today and i am amazed. The mesh quality of things in Second life. And done right it is not very hard on the graphics card. Reducing lag. If it is done right.

    I used my Oculus to inspect the nice work and it made it a very nice experience, blink, blink. ( Did you see that.)

    Now we only need a new viewer and some some new shaders to play around with.

  • Finally i can talk about Sansar.

    The thing we all have been looking for is finally out there. Linden labs Sansar. I have been checking it out for a while but now i can write about it and that is nice.

    And so is Sansar. Nice.I have a Oculus so i can check out the experiances all the way. And i still say Sansar is nice. The graphics good. The update is good. Will be great if you want to do a simple game. And i suppose people will create new tools you can use to make buildning easy. As a user of AltspaceVR, sinespace, High Fidelity and now Sansar i just ask my self "will anybody ever use these products?"

    It have a distinct feel of Blue Mars. You wait for the download and then come into a small space that look great and wonder why am i here? Is there any reason at all?

    There will be some cool games i guess. But if i want to play a really cool game i have Steam.

    At the moment i think it is a question about wait and see.

    PS/ When i get out of Sansar i go back to my ordinary life at the Hypergrid and Second life. It is more fun! /DS

     

  • First High Fidelity avatar.

    Well it is still a Beta. Wanted to look different and i do. So went thru the process of getting a new avatar and it worked all the way to The High Fidelity viewer and then something did not work out.

    But i have a new Avatar. Now to get the textures right.
