    Smile Just saying Hi.. and finding my way.

    Sorry for the repost.. just finding my way around.
    I haven't flown online since 2011, I found my old Ms sidewinder FF2 gathering dist in the shed, scraped the rust off the USB plug, crossed my fingers, and, Viola. It works perfectly under Win11. Wow. It seems my old boxed version of clod has led to a new version called blitz.. and I'm a bit overwhelmed by the improvements. Where is the best place to start getting involved?

    Right here where you are!

    Welcome back to flight simming!
    If you want to flatten the steep (re-)learning curve and have lots of fun in addition, get yourself TeamSpeak and join the servers.
    You will find a lot of friendly guys to explain the new stuff (not to mention some others who will shoot you down, but in the most friendly way).
    There are lots of other Australians and New Zealanders around, so it should be no problem to wing up with someone.



    See you!

    S!

    Just wait till the Visual Update comes out... then you'll be really blown away.

    Don't forget to pick up a copy of DESERT WINGS - TOBRUK, the expansion.

    Welcome, Ghostieguide! No worries about the double post. Just keep the questions coming, if you have any and we'll try to help out.
    Our Community loves Australians because we find them great value for money. Look at our own, our very own ATAG_Pattle. Crackin' guy who puts in hours and hours for our Community. I'm sure it's only a question of time before you'll come across him.
    As the other guys have stated, do download Team Speak (it's the free software we use to communicate and cooperate in sorties) and jump on line. Hopefully, we will see you very soon. Good luck and ....Salute!

    Hello there !!

    I'm rarely seen in the skys these days due to stupid dull business matters... however

    Marlow who I hand reared from seed will no doubt talk you through the basics.

    Those old sidewinders are apparently awesome. and if it works... great !!

    What is your time zone?

    If its UK hook up with Marlow. He will get you up an about in no time.

    and if I show up..... I can ruin that whole learning experience and make it a shed load of fun instead



    EDIT:

    I didn't actually hand rear him from seed.

    he had already gone to seed when we met.



    (seriously though... he's epic!)
