This is an 'unofficial' FlightGear site - just sharing 'personal' experiences ;=))
This section of my web is dedicated to FlightGear - an open-source, multi-platform flight simulator - the best there is! Here I share my 'personal' notes, comments, 'fixes', on building, and running this 'beautiful' set of 'applications', using Microsoft Visual C/C++ 6, 7.1 and 8, in XP SP2, in the hope it helps others enjoy this 'powerful' flight simulator. Have FUN ... ;=))
Choice of current pages in more or less chronological order -
2006-07-21 - cygwin 3 - Another cygwin build. It ran,
eventually, but still missing the 'bridge'!
NOTE: The following are now OLDER versions, and may NOT apply to the current version! Check out the latest updates above. The zips, MSVC-7 and MSVC-6, contain all the (*.sln,*.vcproj) and (*.dsw, *.dsp) respectively. You should try those with the current source first ... they could be more up-to-date ... mine will only work if you have the same 'relative' directory structure as I have chosen, and even then, some may need some 'fixes' due to changes in the source ... my 'release' runtime, my version 099, nothing to do with the 0.9.9 above ... is more like 0.9.8plus ;=)) is here, the debug here, for 'testing' ...
One day I may build, say a fgfs.sln/dsw that loads ALL projects in one hit ... then the README could say - download each of the SOURCES, put them in 'this' folder structure, load the fgfs 'solution', and build ... it could even include a runtime command line, 'suited' to the structure ... but that is wishful thinking, at this time ;=((
Hopefully, more to come ...;=))

My email address is spoken as geoff air, one word, at the domain, hotmail dot com ... that is, geoff air at hotmail dot com ... I try to answer all emails, but please do not expect a 'quick' answer, or solution ... an 'excuse' my 'crazy' web pages, tactics, I am not very good at it ;=))
