  1. The Legacy Map Installer: SBLegacyMapsSetup . exe, It had no option to install in another location, all the other installers had the option to install in a different location.
  2. It would have been better if that installer would let you install it on another location other than C:\ it is only one of the installers that does not let you install to another location. I keep a separate SSD for simulations and such to keep them off of my C : drive.
  3. Mine arrived this morning in Belgium, no customs duty to pay
  4. I suppose that last night was the wrong time to discover Absinthe Licence update email has arrived, but have to wait until the weekend when I get home before downloading the torrents. Where I have to sit to get any sort of internet connection
  5. 1 licence + 1 additional purchased Will have to wait until the weekend when I'm back home from the Vosges and have a "proper" internet
  6. If not tomorrow then I'll see in a week or so, off on holiday into the wilds of France where there is no internet, phone, or mobile phone coverage where we will be staying ... withdrawal symptoms setting in already!
  7. Had me reaching for my recipe book... A bit of practice
  8. What will the Map Editor coming with 4.0 allow you to do with older maps? Are there any things we have to watch out for if we want to continue to edit a map begun in an older version?
  9. Well the copyright on the work expired on the 1st of May this year
  10. Click on the pic in KT's post, it plays the video
  11. I quite enjoy the short videos that Lindybeige posts, I find that his delivery style is quite humorous, anyway, here he is re-telling a couple of anecdotes from Foley's Mailed Fist book about his exploits in a Cromwell tank during WW2
  12. When my wife and I went down to Stelvio in 2007 to cross the pass there we were surprised by the number of fortifications built into the cliffs etc. especially between Austria and Italy
  13. Ah change, well it keeps everyone on their toes And pop-ups too, when someone replies to the topic you are reading Well done people

    Here we can get Guinness West Indies Porter which is a very nice dark porter at around 6%abv and the Guinness Special Export Stout is 8%abv rather than the 4.8% you get in the UK. When I was in Brugge a couple of weeks ago I had a stout called Hercule after Hercule Poirot it was very nice and came in at 9%abv washed down the burger I had just a treat http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/635/1694/
  15. Can't speak about the vehicle itself, but I did have an ex HMMWV 6.2l V8 diesel in my 6x4 off roader, great engine with bags of torque and could rev quite high for a natural aspirated diesel. My truck weighed in at 5.25 Tonnes and with the 6.2 engine returned about 25 to 26mpg compared with the 3mpg the 4.2 V8 petrol that was in it before. The later 6.5l V8 turbo is a lot more powerful but the only experience I have of that is a quick run in a Range Rover that had one fitted... it was scary fast! The truck was used and abused but the engine soldiered on without complaint. Cant say the same for the auto gearbox tho, it was not designed to run those levels of torque and burned out the clutches and drive bands, the gearbox was not a HMMWV one, it was for a single deck bus.
