    I agree

    I had the same problem in "reverse". ATC etc OK but no engine sound in cockpit. Switching from surround sound to stereo fixed it.

    MSFS2020 Scenery Question

    There are large numbers of new scenery arrivals daily. Is this because old GMAX or Sketchup (or other models) are easily converted and sceneries quickly made into MSFS2020 form, or is it because...

    Whatever you do, use a NVIDIA graphics card. I've finally solved 2 years of FSX crashing by replacing my AMD Radeon card with NVIDIA. Plan to post on the crash forum where I sought help.

    Caution! If you are getting Windows 8.1, don't expect FSX to work. Read ALL the stuff about video cards etc. I'm 3 months into an 8.1 setup and still trying to get rid of the lockups and blue screens.
