    Haven't you noticed there's a global deadly pandemic which is the equivalent of a World War against an invisible enemy?

    Most people have more important things to do rather than play computer games.

    No problem, my FSX system has been like it for a decade.

    It also has the advantage that the additional scenery HDD only has fixed files (unless you add any) so doesn't need to be included in a...

    As usual whenever the "FSX with Win10" question is asked, some have had mega-problems and some find it runs perfectly.

    I've no idea why, but thank goodness I'm in the latter category!

    I fly the PMDG 747 almost exclusively, so real world flights would normally be long haul and hence an extended cruise.

    I get around this in the sim by flying unrealistic routes, like London...

    This is what all flight sim Tutorials should aspire to!

    I get so frustrated with "Tutorials" from software companies that simply demonstrate what their product can do rather than how to do it.

    Back to the original article, I feel Aerosoft should be congratulated on resisting the temptation to release their product (and hence start earning money) until all/most of the bugs have been ironed...

    With so many problems in the world today (climate change, Covid 19, people slaughtering each other for their beliefs), it's amazing how some of us can get so worked up over an innocent hobby like...

    Yes, I can't help feeling the update was issued simply because it's due, rather than anything major.

    There will always be those who will defend the new sim no matter what, but the tales of woe just convince me that I have made the right decision to stick with FSX for a couple of years until most of...

    One of the reasons I'm waiting for at least two years before taking the plunge!

    I'm the same with cars.

    I've just bought one of the last Mk7.5 Golf's off the production line after a 6 year run.

    Just as the various Flight Sims are supposed to re-create the aviation world, so the associated forums are re-creating the real world!

    By the time they get all (most) of the bugs out of MSFS2020 I'll be over 80, so I think I'll be sticking to FSX, especially as I've opened my TG wallet big time to buy all the add-on scenery.

    No, I won't be going back, but this is like one of those "Have you stopped beating your wife?" questions.

    The reason I won't be going back is because I like FSX and have no intention of going...

    AS2012 working normally again this morning.

    As I posted earlier, this has happened several times over the years and always comes good after a few days.

    With so many of us getting the problem at the same time, something must have changed at their end.

    I use AS2012 and this happens from time to time.

    I've no idea what causes it (my computer time is always correct) but just wait and all will come good again.
