    Hi
    This is getting frustrating!Im able to get on server now using my old spelling<fether> But!! Now says <Your misc.bin file dose not corresponding our server. please download new FHinstall.exe.Gerrr! I went to the new website and when I click to install it takes me to a security site where it analyses my PC and tries to charge me money to fix! NOT! Only the ip address was of any help.

    Heey feathr! Good to see you back! You've come back at a difficult time, I think. If folks who flew and still fly here can join an attendance topic to arrange times to meet here that would be the best way for the moment. Best of luck getting this to all work on your end! I still wonder how many folks will try to fly here again?? I'm always hopeful some will jump in the fray when there's something here. :turret:

    It's a long film though, and kinda boring maybe? I don't know how to convert these trk files to mpg or mov. I think that's the file type they want.

    I think there is software that records a desktop.
    [Ya can fix any machine on earth [farmers can do those sorts of things] but ya can't record yer desktop?]
    HAHAHAHAHAHA.

    Mine can record a mouse chosen area....
    Ya can't do that?
    I have watched a few of your contests and found them, uh, not boring at all.
    But I use X-Plane which has no dogfights, so do crave to see some action.
    Navigating from KLAX to RJTT in a 747 is cool, in it's own way, but uh.
    In the youtube the fast forward function works just fine. So the boring minutes can be fast-forwarded.
    You could write a book about your skillz.
    Do so, you only live so long.

    Click Start
    Control Panel
    Display
    Click the Appearance tab
    Click the Effect button
    -disable transition effects

    Should be that if I recall correct, can't verify as I don't have anything that runs XP.

    BUT, IIRC again, that tick is only to get rid of FH crashing to desktop all time you choose another plane than F4F... SO maybe try and edit the .exe-launch (ie rightclick on the .exe file for FH and edit the settings for compability.

    There are quite a lot of threads in the fora regarding these issues... but to find it you need to know a good keyword to search for...
    Good luck! :)
