FS-X further delay!

FSX will be released, as previously reported by FlightSim.Com, for the 2006 holiday season but without any of the Windows Vista features enabled.

As soon as they said Vista was delayed,I said FSX would also.

expect a lengthy amount of time to pass, measured in months, between the release of FSX for Windows XP and the Windows Vista version. Secondly, the question remains of whether the Vista version will be a free upgrade patch, or a separate payware version such as the way Microsoft had two versions of FS2000 and FS2002.

Things dont look good,is this another way to get us digging into our pockets ? Crying or Very sad

Interesting, thanks Liono,

Whoa...do we wait or not.
Truthfully I was hoping that Vista would come out first so when I (we) built my new machine I wouldn't have to buy XP for a few months and then replace it with Vista. Now the entire thought process has changed, but I have to add Links 2007 into the equation.
My present machine probably would be extremely slow for it, unless Take2 is planning a 64 bit version and will wait for Vista.
Decision, decisions, I won't loose sleep over it. I hoped that I could take advantage of it's 64 bit (FSX).

but then:

Lots Of New FS2004 Add-ons Coming Your Way
The good news is that there are even more FS2004 payware and freeware add-ons coming your way from the developer world. Apparently no one in the developer community is holding their breath awaiting FSX and our advice to our FlightSim.Com members is to not hold yours either. Enjoy FS2004 for as long as you want and wait patiently while Microsoft gets the kinks worked out of Windows Vista and FSX.

Who was it the other day that said: 'Good things come to those who wait.'?

Sad ahhhhh.....was pretty sure something like this would happen. Thanks for the story link.

Waiting for the Vista version would seem most prudent.

A question, please: Would an AMD 64 (3500+) be equivalent to dual Pentiums in running the 64-bit Vista as mentioned in the arcticle?

Guest

dual-core pentium, I mean

Pro Member Chief Captain

Not many programs can utillise the duelcore structure,yet.
At the moment duel core is like running two PCs,so you could run say a full virus scan and burn a CD/DVD at the same time.But will any programs be able to use duel core ? With AMD and Intel now looking at quad core and higher Shocked
64bit is another matter alltogether.Programs have to be written for 64bit.
The "old" 32bit will run on a 64 PC,but slower.
So to your question Arrow

Would an AMD 64 (3500+) be equivalent to dual Pentiums in running the 64-bit Vista as mentioned in the arcticle?

At this time I think the answer would be yes,as programs are not yet set for duel core,but more and more are being written for 64bit

i don't really care that vista is coming out later because i just spent a bunch on a new computer with xp. as long as i can play fsx on it, i will be very happy Very Happy

If I was to be perfectly honest with you, I'd say I'm happy that FSX is delayed. For one, it stimulates the appreciation of those who are awaiting it, eg. It's worth more than what you've paid for, if you are patient.

Also, I've trimmed FS9 to my needs perfectly, the system runs it comfortably, and with all of the amazing add-ons, and VATSIM, I can't ask for more. With the arrival of FSX, we have to wait as new add-ons are created, and the struggle for money is apparent once again, with regards to upgrades. Compatibility issues, among others, will just make it hard to operate for the first while.

Not to say I don't want FSX, I just think its good that we get to use FS9 to its very last bar of energy, before we move to something new. Wink

If your disk #4 is damaged MS will replace it.

Or if you want, use a crack and never use the CD again.
There are two, one for the unpatched version (9.0) and one for the patched version (9.1).
We have them both here for member download.

If you really want to replace XP with Vista, learn Visul Basic, sign up for Microsoft Developers Network(MSDN) and get Windows Vista Beta for free.
I personally think Vista will be delayed further.

And even then it will be very buggy.
