You should've left it to the installer. It works well. The splash screen is for when you have that region selected. If installed correctly, it'll only show when you select the SW Region through the switcher. It allows you to immediately see if you have VOZ active upon FS launch.
As I said, if you leave it to the installer and switcher everything works. I didn't like the water textures VOZ uses but you can fix that as well.
There is also a guide in the manual for a full uninstall.
Microsoft has moved all of their games and gaming services under the Xbox brand, including PC games and sims. To run MSFS you will need to sign in with a Microsoft account, which will create an Xbox Gamer Tag if your account doesn't have one.
The "write to memory" will be detected by Windows and produce an Event Viewer entry with this exception code:
Exception code: 0xc0000005
as outlined in a post above. This is not happening for Honus, there is "something else" going on.
Hop length depended on what you were flying. One guy always flew a 747, and I almost always flew a Photo Reconnaissance Mk XI Spitfire with 218 gallons fuel so decent range.
Just landed at any airport along the way with fuel and continued on. My first Compuserve Rally was to Atlanta in a Spitfire Mk V with regular fuel tanks. Flew from Burbank to Phoenix to Little Rock to Atlanta refuelling at each stop.
There was not a restriction that you had to use the same aircraft for all hops so fuel was not usually an issue.
For example on my Burbank CA to Moscow USSR trip I flew a Spitfire from Burbank to Edwards AFB then hopped in a SR-71 and flew to the UK, then flew a F-117A to Norway, and then a Mosquito on to Russia.
Some were over water flights. For those I would fly USA to Canada to Gander to Iceland for example.
The basic rule was fly to the destination sometime in the month before the due date using whatever aircraft you wanted, then tell your story in the online chat on the destination day at the appointed time. Now we would just tell our individual story as we go in a thread.
It was just a different destination somewhere in the world each month. Some people (rarely) would meet up and fly together, and some would fly on their own. I always flew from my home airport, but some of the guys flew from wherever they were parked at the time and told their story accordingly.
I can dig up a list of most of the destinations we used if you are interested by tomorrow.
I ran a verify files within steam but didn't make any difference. Doing some looking on the Internet it seems to be connected to something is trying to access or write to memory, but that's just one theory
Oooh. Its been awhile since i used it. As long as you made backups, you should be good to put all your fav textures back in.
Sadly i think they're CAN be conflicts with the scenery, landclass etc. But for the most part, it makes a huge difference to flying in OZ.
If I am remembering correctly (always a risk, lol), you need an Xbox account (where you can create your gamer tag and it will be displayed in the sim), but you don't have to have the hardware. Just need it to download the sim.
