Technical Problems

Posted on March 27, 2014 at 9:30 AM

The Blog's been quiet recently, mainly due to finding the time to update it, especially as most of it has been taken up by trying to get the computer to work.

The bad news is that we couldn't get XP to run normally once we re-installed the operating system. it turned out the old motherboard blowing had done some damage to the harddrive. In the end we had to completely re-install the OS.

The good news is that it activated, as did FSX when we re-installed that.

The bad news though is that we only had XP pro SP2 and we can't get it to update from the website.

The good news is that we may be able to do an SP3 image update.

The better news is that we'll be going to Windows 7 ASAP.

The other good news is that because we'd already taken a copy of our custom nimrod off the game and stored it elsewhere we were able to put it back on, though we're going to have to rebuild the virtual instrument panel and views.

As a result we're not opening on the 28th of March. New opening Day is the 25th April, for which we should be ready.
