if you want to see further and not zoom out take the tick out of the box keep aircraft on the map then any where you click on the map becomes centre to make it a moving map again just tick the box again

I have finally dug out the FSC 8.4 update and installed it last night.

The main change, was the moving map, was just that, a moving map, the aircraft icon stays in the middle of the screen

Took a couple of test flight to see how it worked, and it was not too bad, the only fly in the ointment, was that I could not look ahead as far as I could before, without zooming out, I now only have half the screen visible from the aircraft position. Mind you, the feature can be turned on and off. (Bones, that is why I had trouble finding the IOM VOR, it was offscreen, should have put it into the FP)

There are some other changes, mainly cosmetic.

FSC works across the LAN via WideFS, but I need to be able to update the database, this can only be done by FSC directly accessing the sim, something I am having troublesorting out. In fact, I have as yet to be able to get IVAO working across the LAN. Likewise SB4, and FSInn does not like Vista 64.

As far as Simmconnect goes, that definatly will not work, dispite loading the latest version on each machine, after that it gets complicated. I think that the problem is Vista 64 and WinXP are not in total agreement.. I have got networking working, but that is it.

I am afraid RTFM does not seem to get through to me.

I will have another go but will be calling on the expertise of those who have been sucesseful.
