    I don't think EVP was your problem since it has nothing to do with dlls (unless your copy carried malware). I doubt there are any downloads of gvp files since, except for the default, they are...

    You have my condolences; Vista is not an OS, it's a POS. My best recommendation, before you get too much on your system, is to get W7. That said, I've been running FS9 in Vista for years; most...

    I've had no problems with EVP, beyond it occasionally claiming duplicate entries which don't exist.

    You can place inactive aircraft anywhere but the aircraft folder; I would not mix FS9 and FSX aircraft as some may have same or similar names.

    My system for "mothballing" aircraft is merely to...

    In that case, does the aircraft.cfg contain FFB settings? If it doesn't you could try copying that section from a similar aircraft and possibly tweak those settings.

    I had to look through a half...

    Many stutters are caused by the massive amount of textures being shuffled in and out of memory - terrain, airports, AI aircraft, weather - and the size of those textures. Tailor your installed...

    This behaviour, along with a general oscillation or vibration, of the aircraft usually indicates you've hit a max speed. Check the .cfg file for this being set too low. Published specs for the...

    My longest flight to date was a mere twelve hours, with most of it at 4X acceleration; I was working at my other computer most of the time (two desks and a swivel chair).

    Well, you're not exactly maneuvering at those speeds and altitudes so how to judge if dynamics are properly modeled? In the X-15 I was at 90k ft, full throttle, level flight, AP on. In fact, the...

    Are there gauges involved with generating the afterburner effect?

    You may have to create custom versions of the effects just for the static aircraft; create new emitters and use those textures.
