oh and just to add, if you do install flight deck 4 into fsx, the scenery will be messed up. you'll start off inside the carrier somehow and by the time you make it to the end *splasssssssh*

You shouldn't be surprised after having read the page that Radarman linked you to.

If you have already installed Flight Deck 4 for FS2004, you are already set to run the Flight Deck 4 Update for FSX when available.

If you have a Flight Deck 4 CD-ROM (for F2004) but do not plan to install it for FS2004, you can download and run the FD4_CD-ROM_Validation program which prepares your system for the Flight Deck 4 Update for FSX when available.

Note in both paragraphs the 'when available' Idea

I downloaded the Flight Simulator X upgrade for Flight Deck 4, it is a mess! My first few attempts at flying in the med with the Super Hornet resulted in FSim X locking up and crashing. I then tried flying from the carrier at San Diego. The scenery and effects loaded this time without crashing but what a mess. The deck is awash with water and the deck based vehicles and aircraft are all floating in the air. I took off with great difficulty only to have everything die over the hills at the back of San Diego. I had a look at the files for F Sim X and compared them against the original FSim 2004 files. Other than the addition of a few extra effects for the carriers it looked the same. I think they have merely used their original carriers. I tested this theory by referencing the original FSim 2004 carriers from FSim X and it all looked exactly the same! Did anyone at Abacus test this on FSim X before it was released?

I also had the Abacus Air Bus in my FSim 2004 Hanger. When their FSim X version was released I stumped up the upgrade fee. Another regret, while it appears to fly ok (only flown it once) the Virtual Cockpit looks awful Ė everything looks very flat.

I have several Abacus products for FSim 2004, some very good, some mediocre, some awful. But if this is an example of their Flight Simulator X upgrades then I donít think I will bother with anymore.

Same results here with the "Upgrade"... Most A/C lock up the machine, and there are no "on deck" A/C on the carrier if you fly out to it and land with an A/C that works. Too bad so many nice planes just won't load.
