For the evening hop from Liverpool to Manchester I was getting frame rates
of 2 but it's a glitch I seem to get from time to time. Turning off
Transform and Lighting got rid of the problem but I never had FPS much above
13. I'm suspecting the Parhelia can no longer cope with everything I've
loaded into FS2004.

You may have to read the ASv6 manual as I recall they used to offer a less
memory hungry cloud set (8bit?). I think the default textures are 32bit and
these can demand a lot of work from the system.

I could see yoy, for about an hour, on the Servinfo map. No sign at any
time, through the windows, yet I saw Tom's F100, quite clearly, on the
ground at Dublin. Mind, I was flying in real time and with ASv6 weather,
so it was pitch black and with almost unbroken cloud below. John
mentioned you were a couple of hundred feet below me but you weren't
showing on TCAS; then I remembered it only picks up AI traffic. Hope my
descent for Dublin didn't take you by surprise but you were'nt on
JHB_OPS, so I couldn't warn you. I guess these ATC types are safer on
the ground!

My framerates were only about 18 fps, all the way over. Approaching
Dublin they fell to around 4. I suspect the AS clouds. Is there a less
framerate AS cloud variant that is still visually OK?
