Is There A Way Or Should I Just Put Up With It....

Sun Aug 17, 2003 12:17 am

Hi Big grin

Okay, i have two computers. This rubbish one which has the internet, and a very good one which doesn't. If i had the choice i would put FS2004 on here so i could get planes from the internet but the game is too big to go on here, so it has to go on the other one. So now i cannot get any real aircraft from the net to put on it. And i'd really love to fly the A340-600!

So i tried a floppy disk and it could only take 1.28mb so most of them were too big. Is there any way I can get aircraft from the internet to FS2004 then???

Well, do you have a CD burner!? If you do, put them on a CD-RW and transfer. I play FS2004 now on my other comp. which temporarily has no internet. The other computer is much, much faster and FS2004 plays flawlessly. I put like 30-40 (though you can hold MUCH MUCH more than that) on the CD, and then put them on my other comp. If you don't have a CD burner, maybe you have a friend that does!

Okay, thank you for the help. My CDburner is broken so I'll try and fix it and get it to work. Does anybody know where i can find an A340-600 anyway, and in Virgin Colours would be great!!!

Hmm...i would invest USD 14 (each) into buying network cards, install them into both computers, hook both of them together via a network cable (crossover cable) and then transfer files that way.


P.S.: I had the *same* problem as you 3 years ago!! I actually zipped my planes using winzip so that they would fit onto my 1.44 floppy...

...ahhh...the good 'ol days of transferring files.




Does both your PCs have USB?? You could just buy a USB thumb drive and transfer planes that way...rather than using a meager-sized floppy disk.

I'm not sure if it works in 2004, but Flightcraft has a good enough A346.
Go to Avsim.com and do a search for flightcraft and see what comes up.
It's an .exe file, so all you do is double click it and it goes into place.

the problem is, the virgin livery doesn't appear on mine, it comes up blank, so I don't know what's wrong.
I downloaded a BWIA repaint though, and it works fine.
if you give me your email address, I can send you a screenshot.

The only problem is is that this one is downstairs and my other one is upstairs.

Sorry I'm not the biggest computer freak but what's a USB? (lol)

Hey thanks Inbound, let's just hope there's a way of actually getting it to FS2004 though Big grin. I hope to be bringing my other PC down here with the internet sometime
