  1. Dam with six minutes to go I never really thought of it.
  2. Respectively speaking..no matter when it is released and no matter how much 'tireless testing' is being done - upon release there will be many, many immediate and quite valid bugs and subsequent patches, hotfixes and service packs no matter when it gets 'finished. Software developing never really ever gets done. SP1 SP2 so on and so forth..endlessly. Tell them to let US test it. Let the customers get more involved. we would love to do it for FREE.You would get thousands of eager and knowledgable FSX/REX testers. Better then 20 hand-picked cronies..eh? ..like windows 7 and Windows 8 do public previews. Just a suggestion - recruit many more testers by doing a Public Beta. I can't take all the credit for this advanced testing method..it is Bill Gates' idea. By those comments it appears that you have no idea how complicated software development is, the last thing these REX guys need is a huge pool of testers (most of who would be inexperienced with the goals and results of which the development team are trying to accomplish) sending them bug reports, it would just create a backlog of issues and confusion. I want my new weather engine just as badly as you, but I have tremendous respect for these guys, they know what they are doing, and for god sake man they are giving this to us for free, just like they gave us OD for free, Wow in this day and age who does that. My thanks to REX and their BETA TESTERS who you referred to as cronies. Its not all fun and games for them.
  3. So can I just uninstall REX completely and install the Full version on REX Essentials OD?
  4. Hey Tim if your need someone to break the software give it to me
  5. CLOSED

    In such a small niche market it was a good policy not a bad one, come on this is business 101
  6. Installed it, played the fist two required missions, joined a multiplayer session, got bored crashed my plane into another player (Actually got a reward for this ) then quit.
  7. Anyone around here ever purchase a storebucks voucher from the fss store? I bought a 30$ voucher to send to a friend and it has yet to show up in my account. Does it take time? Anyways just wondering if anyone has done this before and ran into problems.
  8. This is the first I have heard of REX Essential Overdrive, I don't care if I have to pay, man you guys have to start charging for something
  9. I have been away for a bit so whats all this verified lingo going on, I think I missed something
  10. Base pack is $69.99 according to Roberts post at avsim.
  11. Im not worried about it, I have never won a contest in my life except once where I proved I was master of my domain
  12. Maby its some sort of air traffic system with 500 airlines
  13. Simair banner taken down, is this a good thing or a bad thing?
  14. ANSWERED

    They already made contrails once as a free DL but took them down for some reason, I think they were causing a few users issues though I never had any problems, they were amazing. I have them backed up on a disk somewhere, I would just have to go through about a thousand of them to find the zip. Here is a video I made, it a pretty crap video so you can go to 3:03 and you can see the REX contrails.
  15. I'll assume you mean in FSX. This is normal, they decide to leave this feature out of the sdk from what I understand, there are payware aircraft that have it , like the RealAir Duke and he PMDG JS4100 but its up to the developer of the aircraft to add this feature or not. One of the many blunders you will have to deal with in FSX.
