Thread: FSX Steam Fail

  1. Default FSX Steam Fail

    Sorry if this has been covered, I've looked through
    posts for about an hour and haven't seen this addressed.

    I just bought and installed the Steam version of FSX on
    a new computer. I go to free flight and set up a simple
    flight, click "Fly Now," and the screen goes black while
    the menu music plays and nothing happens. I still have
    the mouse cursor movable, but a black screen otherwise.
    I can't even get Task Manager, I have to ctrl-alt-del
    and restart to get out of it. I've tried it with several
    aircraft and locations, and there have been no add-ons
    installed. I assume it's a software issue because the
    music keeps playing. Anybody got a solution? Thanks.

    Asus ROG, Intel Core i7-9700K, 16GB Memory,
    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, 512GB SSD.

    that baffles me, seems to indicate nothings "locked up." I set
    a restore point in anticipation of such trouble (25 years of this
    crap and you learn). I may just ditch the program AND Steam and
    try to wrestle with installing my old FSX Gold from disc.

    Turns out it was as simple as checking "Direct X 10 preview" on the
    settings- customize page. Seems to work well, now to all the
