I use it and will so for a long time! There is a model converter out there that converts FS2004 models to FS2002. It comes in two files, the converter software and a Windows GUI. Occasionally you will have to tweek the .Air files or the Aircraft.cfg files to get
the aircraft to fly. But that's part of the fun! :-) Starting with FSX the Aircraft models use 2 .MDl files, one for the exterior and one for the interior. Those aircraft can't be converted! I stick to No scenery for the most part with the exception of the Stonehenge patch and AlphaSim's Groom Lake! :-) I've only had one FS2004 panel not work and that one had some cutting edge features. Otherwise I move the .Cab files from the FS2004 panel folders to the Fs2002 gauges folder and the panels work fine! I give FS2002 a 10 out of 10, and I'm still using FS98 and FS4 on this Windows XP Pro computer!
