I'm a "newbie" on this forum and would like to say G'day! I have a question for those of you who understand how PCs work, I have just purchased a new "Purpose built" PC for "Flight Sims" I probably don't have the correct combination but I'm in there and trying. "Fellas", I need some help. As I said I've just bought a new PC, the first PC I ever had ran Win 98 I then went to XP and found "IL2", I absolutely loved it, then a friend's kid got on it and stuffed it! I was given, as a present, a new one but alas it had a Vista O/S I couldn't run IL2 anymore. To cut a long story short, yesterday I noticed on some MS site that Ubisoft were offering an upgrade to Win 7 PC owners to enable us to use IL2 1946.
Now this is the problem, " I have never had a lesson in how to use a computer. Everything I know (Which isn't a lot) and understand is as a result of trial and error so please treat me as a "computer Idiot" I understand most things but I know there are a lot more things to learn. I'm 57 years of age, I'm only a learner, I have all of the software in my cabinet ready to download and would love to eventually learn how to get online and fly with and against real people rather than AI aircraft. I'm not sure if I'm on the correct forum and apoligise if I'm not. Is there someone out there who would be willing to lend an "Old Bloke" a hand?
Thanks and Cheers,
