I went to check on something in Golden Wings today and to make a long story short, it's FUBAR. I've tried every method of repair and none have worked. I will not be re-installing it. I haven't flown it for fun in a long time and have only started it twice since Christmas to try to answer someone's question. My two remaining FS9 installs are probably headed to the same byte bucket as they quit working. I'm really only using FSX now.
So, basically that means that I won't be much of a GW3 resource as time goes on. I will help _IF_ I can remember something, but I will no longer have a testbed.

It's strange, isn't it, that these sim versions almost becom elike old friends. I know that when a favorite install dies for one reason or another, it's always bittersweet knowing the next install will be better but lamenting the time spent "perfecting" the previous one. I could see myself doing the same thing if I had FSX...but a machine that will run it right is off in the future.....
The other day when I screwed up my own GW install, I started experimenting with using the GW textures and some other stuff in my vanilla FS9 install....I've come up with some sort of hybrid that's pretty neat so far......ahhh...the ups and downs of simming!!!! middle
