info on Great Planes G3 Real Flight Sim

Has any one had problems with their G3 Real Flight Simulator? Right out of the box mine I got today wont work.

After downloading per instructions, I got the error message:
error creating effect. prop disk.

After uninstalling and reinstalling, I went to the G3 website and registered so that I could see the message boards. I found many others also had run into problems upon download. < so I was not alone in my frustration >

The support crew is not there on the weekends and even though I was welcomed to the message board, was not allowed to make posts. What is up with this?

Any ideas on how to fix this frustrating problem (prop disk error) thanks!

The folks that frequent the sims forum can probably help you out. I'll move the thread so they can see it.

It would be best to post your systems specs. Ie processor, Harddrive, Ram and graphics card. Sounds like you are running into a graphics card problem to me.

Go back to the Knife Edge site and look for the specific cards they tested the sim on. You need one of these specific cards for the simulator to operate.
