  1. Forgive my ignorance, but what is DXT1 and where do I find it to implement it?
  2. New Rig On Hold

    Thanks for your response Dan but as there have been some very goood comments on the K series Ivy Bridge processors and nVida, it appears , is a step ahead of the opposition with the 600 series cards, I am still keen to get the latest CPU and GPU. My current rig has a Intel Quad Core processor @ 2.83GHz and an nVida 9880GTX @ 1024 Mb. I want my new rig to be as up to date as possible. It won't be long before the new rig will be outdated anyway. At my age it may well be my last rig.
  3. New Rig On Hold

    I am going to be getting a new rig for FSX but my research to date indicates that existing Motherboards have not yet caught up with the latest Ivy Bridge processors let alone allow nVida's drivers to mature with the still to be released 685 series card to come. So, if I download Essentials Overdrive on it's release will I have to pay for another download later. At the moment I am caught between my desire to enjoy what Essentials has to offer and my intention to upgrade to a better system for FSX and all addons. Your cmments on my predicament please.
  4. Whether we have high end rigs or like myself not so high end many of us, I am sure , want to know the minimum specifications recommended for Essentials. Could we have some feedback on this as soon as practicable please. I note that Tim's post indicates that in spite of greater complexity the weather engine appears to be less of a drain on frame rates. I hope I did not misinterpret the comments in the post on this point.
  5. Overdrive required for Essential?

    Your guess is as good as mine but I would be prerared to suggest that any program update as far reaching as Essential appears to be will probably entail an uninstall of REX as you know it with an installation of Essential. In the meantime run Overdrive, it will certainly give you a fell for where they are heading with Essentials...well to some extent anyway.
  6. Support Verification

    I am not sure if I need to post here as it seems from my member particulars that I am verified. However I thought I would check as, with this many seeking verification, I do not want to be left out in the cold. Also, where do I get that cool " Essentials " logo?
