    In theory, yes, it should be possible to run the sim offline after installing it. Unfortunately, this has proven to be somewhat unreliable and shouldn't be relied upon. Note that the offline mode...

    The rolling cache is primarily there to minimize the amount of data downloaded, though could be used if you don't have an internet connection. If you regularly fly in the same areas, the sim can use...

    Well, there have been a few issues with MSFS updates and the FBW A32NX mod. Including the example below where having the mod installed also affected the default A320.

    I think you're forgetting about the other side of upgrades where add-ons themselves break or do conflict with updated scenery, and from there some users have blamed the base sim itself. There have...

    Your only real option these days is Steam. FSX Steam Edition is largely the same as FSX Deluxe plus Acceleration. It has a few minor bug fixes and a replacement for the Gamespy multiplayer, but lacks...

    What I suspect is that the sim is focused more on indexing the add-ons at launch, rather than loading all of the data. Think of cataloguing all the books in a library. Noting the title, author and...

    Haven't played with it myself yet, but from reading it here and elsewhere, I do have to wonder if the bigger factors aren't number and type of add-ons vs simple number of gigabytes. A simple test of...

    Your performance difference was due to the resolution difference, not physical size. A 1080p (which is HD by the way) 50" TV and 24" monitor would have the exact same performance using the same GPU....

    1920x1080 (I'm betting the x32 part is colour, though even if it 32" size, it doesn't matter to the GPU) is definitely not too high for that video card.

    PMDG have said they will be bringing their entire line-up to MSFS, including the DC-6. Might take a while though.

    If it's such a big performance hit there should be evidence that disabling the page file on current systems makes a noticeable difference. So far I have not seen any.
