Not sure if this applies to Vista but anybody who has Windows 7 will have continual program crashing which says

Never had  a problem with it crashing on Win7 x64, however I hate it so much that I haven't played it in months now.  When I have time again, I will reinstall FS9 and all the wonderful add-on's I have.  Sigh....

You have to play it awhile and scroll around in it to trigger the .dll conflict...It was really annoying and Microsoft pretty much fired the support team...But I'm really starting to like FSX...The details of the land and the lighting effects on the aircraft are simply amazing...I remember you took a picture out the window on approach to CLE with lots of houses below, and I said I wish FS9 was that dense, well FSX is pretty much that way with the settings up high..Not to mention the look of the cars and trucks driving around on the roads...But your right about the lack of freeware scenery for FSX...I bought Ultimate Traffic 2 and mixed in some World of AI packs and now my traffic is just like my old FS9...But you do need still need a strong computer to really enjoy FSX.

I have an awesome operating system that runs FSX on max everything and doesn't miss a beat. I did have a few problems with it crashing but it seemed to be with a certain download and not anything else.  I'm working on Add-ons when I have the time and dude, it makes it even better. Once you play FSX for a while, then go back to FS9, it is like playing Atari.

I have a great system, but it's all the add-on's, the great planes and sceneries I had spent money on which don't work for FSX.  I don't agree that FS9 is like Atari, FSX is just a slightly tweaked FS9.  I would need hundreds of dollars again to get my planes upgraded or repurchased, same with the scenery.  Not worth it to me.

LOL, I didn't mean literally. It is just seems sparse compared to what the default FSX has to offer. I do agree,  good freeware is tough to find. I don't like to spend money on it either so I can see your point. Perhaps i should liken it to, you go from PS3 to PS2?

Hehe, I didn't take it literally.  But honestly, I don't see much change at all.  The only thing I noticed which I liked was that runways and taxiways actually looked wet when it was raining.  Scenery, even when cranked up, doesn't look a whole lot better than in FS9 where I usually fly.  (I don't consider fake random buildings good scenery).

Nah, I wouldn't even give it the credit of going from PS2 to PS3.  Maybe a older PS3 game to a newer one.  That's as much as I am willing to budge  ;D
