I was going to reply "So was I", but I installed it on another machine (which I didn't want to use because it is too small, storage-wise), and flew from LA to SF in a Cessna 172. That's almost as bad as being seen driving a Ford.
That's because I couldn't get the Beech Baron started, which I later fixed with a mouse driver upgrade. FS2 seems to be very picky about things like that.
Sim behaviour, very smooth.
Terrain mesh very sharp, textures a bit patchy, and mixed.
San Fran scenery very impressive, especially at night and I also got a great sunset.
Aircraft behaviour very good.
So, it gets to stay. I hope it will be simple to deactivate and uninstall from MiniBeast when I get a new SuperBeast. The addons downloads are pretty massive, so we'll need to look at that. I don't like unknown third parties making free with my bandwidth allowance, but my provider is slowly coming round to unlimited for everyone. We shall see.
Thanks for the advice, and the moral support. There's nothing worse than an unhelpful error message. I could see the bl**dy thing wasn't running. I needed to know why it had stopped.
