Loading time SSD drive

Recommended Posts

loading times can be extremely long, with the game really taking its time on those initial load screens.


I am very curious what your time is from boot to the Welcome screen.

Then from the welcome screen to the actual flight.



my boot time to Welcome screen about 2 minutes

and from welcome to flight 1 minute


i wonder if these are normal loading times with a ssd drive.

I have it installed on an 860 EVO and my loading times are a bit long also. 1:15 to the welcome screen and another 1:22 to the flight - 2:37 total time (this is with the settings on Ultra).
Intel 10700K @ 5.0 Ghz, Asus Maxumus XII Hero MB, Noctua NH-U12A Cooler, Corsair Vengence Pro 32GB 3200Mhz, Geforce RTX 2060 Super GPU, Cooler Master HAF 932 Tower, Thermaltake 1000W Toughpower PSU, Windows 10 Professional 64-Bit, and other good stuff.

I am running FS2020 on an Alienware Laptop purchased in mid 2016 no SSD.


From pressing the On Button to Windows screen less than 15 seconds.


Click the FS2020 icon - Sitting in Cockpit read to fly. 12 - 14 minutes.

This is from the MSFS2020 Forums. You need to add the -fastlaunch to .exe before starting up the sim. I have my game on a EVO SSD and have noticed alot faster loading times once this has been added.


Right-click on the game title under the Library in Steam and select Properties.

Under the General tab click the Set launch options… button. Enter the following : ‘-FastLaunch’ (without the quotes)

Close the game’s Properties window and launch the game.


Another option is to download the SDK, and to execute fsdevmodelauncher.exe (inside Tools/bin) each time you want to run the game.
