FSX SE or BOX on a new PC

Recommended Posts

All,

 

I have to rebuild my PC due to it having multiple issues with FSX but I am wondering if I should take the opportunity to install the Steam Edition of FSX or stay with my boxed copy?

 

I purchase the SE version last weekend as it was only £3.99.

 

I've heard it improves the FPS due to being recompiled with later Microsoft software?

 

Let me know your thoughts...

If you are installing to a new, or recently reinstalled operating system, then there is no reason whatever not to install FSX:SE as it will appear to any installer as just regular FSX+Acceleration.

Seems reasonable but will all my addons listed work?

I run both box and SE.. Not all add ons work for SE at this point. So see no point

to dump the box version. IE: FSrecorder does not work for SE as far as I know.

Orbix did have an issue.. Not sure if they got going on SE yet or not.. Maybe..

ASN does now work for both if you have SP2.

The 737NGX works both with the latest updates.. IE: SP1d or the one after it which

came out the other day.

I have I think four installs total on this box.. One SE, and I think three for FSX box

on different drives. That way I'm covered if a drive flakes out.. I can always re-d/l

SE if it goes kaput. I still actually run the box version more than SE at this point.

But I wanted SE to tinker with.
