Whenever i load any of the non photofield type airports (any of the original Sierra Nevada ones or any of the textured airports off Expansion pack2)
the
loading progress indicator goes really slow and sometimes stops for long periods.This is only when it gets to the part where it is loading textures
But if i then left mouse click anywhere
in the ghosted menu area at the top
whenever it starts to slow up badly,
it then progresses/ loads really quickly with every mouse click.

I remember reading someone mentioning this same problem in one of the threads ages ago
but i can't find it anymore.Is there a reason or solution to it?

My PC specs are Athlon64 3500+
1 gig of Ram
MSI NX7900GTO

Travis,
Any thoughts on why this might be happening.
It never used to do this,started just prior to upgradeing to G3.5
It's only happening when "loading textures" progress is on the screen when
changeing from one Airport to another when the new one being loaded is a Sierra Nevada type airport.Or on the first start of the program
if the last airport used before exiting was a Sierra Nevada airport
It's almost like the left mouse clicks are forceing the Program to skip past something at that stage of loading

In the past this issue has been attributed to the RealFlight dck files being fragmented. You might try to defragment your hard drive and see if that fixes the problem.

I've defragmented the drive and it still does the same thing.
Can't work out why left clicking the mouse in the ghosted menu area
should make it speed up the loading progress bar like it does.

It's done it on mine from day one.. I have even e-mailed Real Flight about it...
Nothing came back from them,, they have there money they seem to not care.

Oh,, I have found that putting your mouse up on simulator and keep clicking on it ,seem to make it load much faster.. I have told Real Flight about this work around also.. Still they don't seem to fix it.

**Now doing Forward Flight And EASY 3d! And having a Ball !!**

Update:
I have just bought a larger hard drive recently and cloned the old one across to it.The delaying and stalling has now gone.
