slow slow computer

o.k. stupid question but maybe someone can give me a quick solution[short of buying a new computer].How do I check windows xp to see if there is a program running in the backround ?

JOYSTICK

YEA,just buy a joysick and make sure it has a hat switch[for all around views] and twist action for rudder. I personally like the logitech extreme 3d pro because I can abuse it in combat.There are many good joysticks out there. For about 35 to 45 dollers its more than worth the money because its jus...

I also discovered that several other boeings suddenly had engine sounds but would not move at all. so i deleted the fab b17 and may have to uninstall and reinstall fs2002.

what fuel pump?

ok i looked all over the panel and in the help section,there is no command to turn on the fuel pump.all the other planes are already started and i can turn all the engines on and off with the autostart key command. any other ideas?

can't start engines on b17fab

hey there,I downloaded and installed the b17fab.zip. I'm using fs2002 and I can get the props to turn over,smoke comes out,then the engines stop. I wonder if I can do anything in the cfg or air file to fix this. thanks

picture it

o.k. I don't want to step on toes but you might try a program called"picture it!" also by microsoft,kind of a dumbed down version of photo shop. if you are in a hurry its pretty easy to use. BUT photo shop is worth learning ,it really is a great program.

airliners,women

I think its what you said,these pilots develop a feel for the plane. I have a good friend,his sister flies dc9's for northwest. She belongs to a group called the 99's they are the first 100 female commercial pilots. That was about 8 years ago so I'm sure there are more all the time.

upgrade

sounds good to me but it's going to take some time to get all the cash. 300 dollers or less is a good figure. so what would be a good first step for about 100?
