    Welcome to CSim, Jonesy1760. As for IL 2, it is an old sim and evidently a lot of people have trouble getting it to run. You may wish to check the following link to MicroSoft for more information. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/games_windows_10/compatabilty-issues-with-older-games-il-2/b3708b27-0932-4df5-84cb-da6fb3bb1202?auth=1

Terry Moore *Born January 7, 1929, in Glendale, California, as Helen Luella Koford, Moore grew up in a Mormon family in Los Angeles, California. She worked as a child model before making her film debut in "Maryland" (1940). Moore was billed as Judy Ford, Jan Ford, and January Ford before taking Terry Moore as her name in 1948. Moore worked in radio in the 1940s, most memorably as Bumps Smith on "The Smiths of Hollywood". Most of her films were B-pictures, but several were box office hits, including "Mighty Joe Young" (1949), "Come Back, Little Sheba" (1952) - for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and "Peyton Place" (1957). In 1962 she appeared as a rancher's daughter in the NBC Western drama "Empire", opposite Richard Egan and Ryan O'Neal. Moore has worked steadily throughout her career, usually in minor roles in small films. She appeared on the NBC interview program "Here's Hollywood". Moore lived with Howard Hughes briefly in a small duplex or cabin at his Tule Springs Ranch near Las Vegas, Nevada. After he died, Moore claimed that they married secretly in 1949, and never divorced. She failed to provide any evidence of a marriage, but the Hughes's estate paid her a settlement in 1984. Moore wrote two books about Hughes: "Terry Moore - The Beauty and the Billionaire". New York (1984). "Terry Moore and Jerry Rivers - The Passions of Howard Hughes". General Publishing Group (1996), an abridged audio version of the book narrated by Terry. She claims that Hughes was denied medical treatment by people conspiring to take over his estate. Terry Moore She married an American football player, Glenn Davis, in 1951. At age 55, Moore posed nude in the August 1984 issue of Playboy magazine, photographed by Ken Marcus. She told Jeff Benziger of Autograph Collector Magazine in a 2003 interview that her nude pictorial was a "revenge thing" against those who think women are washed up at 30. "In Hollywood, they think you're only good from 18 to 25 -- that's a woman's years. A man goes on forever. I'd see the girls with the false breasts, and the nose jobs, and the things put in the cheeks, and everything. And I thought, 'I'm all natural. I thought, I'll show them'. And my photos were unretouched." She refused to pose nude again at age 65, saying that she had proven her point. Despite appearing naked in Playboy, Moore describes herself as a "devout Mormon". TRIVIA: Measurements: 35 1/2-23-35 (September 1953) (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine).

    Yep, it's not getting any better either. It's suggested to run ReactOS in a VM, but what's the point of that? I might as well just run Windows 2000 in the VM.

    afternoon all, rainy blah day on tap. have a good one

    That’s a VERY bad regression! I hate that with software. How it should be: download maybe install run How it actually is: download no installer, just source code get toolchain (compiler, cmake) version conflict; try with a different version google the correct versions compile try to run but command-line arguments are missing, create the proper batch file for that try again to run set up PATH variables … … I usually stop after three steps. Sorry to hear ReactOS is in the latter category as well …
  13. TAW 3View — A Renderer for TAW's .3 Files

    Suitably intrigued, I thought I'd try out ReactOS on my mini pc, so I go to their ISO download page, but.... " Due to problems with the USB stack it is NOT currently possible to install ReactOS from a USB stick or USB CD-ROM, the setup process will fail partway through. This worked previously but was broken several years ago by a rewrite of the USB code." FFS!
  14. Monday

    Morning all. Cloudy with rain and 41F. Rain and thunderstorms likely, especially early. Up to an inch of rain expected. Windy. Winds out of the SE at 15-25 MPH. High of 52F. Chance of light snow tonight Little or no accumulation expected. Windy conditions continue.

Virginia Patton *Virginia Patton was born on January 1, 1925 in Portland, Oregon. Virginia graduated from Jefferson High in 1942. Her high school goal was to "make it in Hollywood". Some of her movie credits include "Thank Your Lucky Stars" (1943), "Hollywood Canteen" (1944), "Janie" (1944), "The Last Ride" (1944), "The Horn Blows at Midnight" (1945), "It's a Wonderful Life" (1946) and "The Burning Cross" (1947). She gave up acting in the late 1940s to concentrate on raising a family with her husband, Cruse W. Moss in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She considered "It's a Wonderful Life" as a once in a lifetime movie role. She occasionally sees other surviving cast members at various functions. Patton has been married to Cruse W. Moss since 1949 and gave up acting in the late 1940s to concentrate on raising a family with her husband in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She is president of The Patton Corporation, an investment and real estate holdings company in Ann Arbor and is also involved in community work. Patton still gives interviews about It's a Wonderful Life. With the death of Argentina Brunetti in December 2005, Virginia Patton is the only credited adult actor in It's a Wonderful Life still alive. Boeing Aircraft Ad - January 1945

    Hey, Donnie, where did you find that pic of me? I left that Gym years ago!

    In theory, Windows drivers should be supported – but now that I see their graphics driver compatibility page, I understand your doubts …

  21. TAW 3View — A Renderer for TAW's .3 Files

    ReactOS looks great in theory, although I guess a big problem would be hardware support. As annoying as Win10 is, most things work quite nicely from an OS point of view so it may be the least worst option for a while longer.
  22. TAW 3View — A Renderer for TAW's .3 Files

    Precisely, Lean Viewer uses the Direct3D 11 runtime and requires a GPU with Direct3D 10.1 or higher. (There has actually been a request to port it to D3D 9, but it’s too much trouble to be worth it – D3D 9 has restrictions on the number of triangles you can draw at once, so I’d have to split meshes into fitting pieces before rendering them.) I’ve been watching ReactOS for a long time. I never had the time to actually try it, though. If some gave me a hundred thousand dollars, I’d probably quit my job and invest ten years into improving ReactOS – Windows 7 support end is coming closer; I don’t want to use Windows 10 (and it’s not even compatible with my machine) and Linux is, like you said, not the answer.

    The Donster is infallible. This is probably some metaphor for 'terrain following'. How would you navigate through those two mountains and that valley?

    Must have been posted in error.
  25. Sunday

    Morning y'all, clear skies and 29F as the January thaw continues. Expecting sunshine and a high of 62F today!
  26. Post location error

    Well, I think that this is somewhat inappropriate for a combat simulation site...
