    While you better stick to this forum Kevin,
    dveswans is welcome to make his third post in eleven years in the FSX forum !
    Well I'm Canadian and second Kevin's comment!

    Look, I sympathize with the frustration. MSFS has knowingly pushed gaming boundaries, so many people without the exactly right hardware and without the exactly perfect configurations end up suffering. I get it. But it will get better over time, assuming the average person continues upgrading their hardware over time. The hardware needs are definitely not going to get lower. I haven't researched figures but Microsoft has probably made millions from happy customers. I am definitely one of them. Not sure my wife is given that this has spiraled into a new chapter of my life as a real-life student pilot, but she's doing okay.

    His other posts were problems with FS9 as well. Gee, maybe he should just not be into flight simming?

    I have an idea, let's all go back to AM radio?

    I had no problem with the update. I just flew across Belgium without any problems, EBLG to EBOS.

    Nah, it's more like taking a real flight in a 737 NG or taking a flight in a 737 MAX!

    Funny that... I'm getting so much disruptive interfearance with my truck's satellite radio, from new 5G towers, that it's forcing me to turn the radio off in some areas of the city. I used to think it was just sats out of line of sight, but then noticed it only occured in certain areas, and EVERY time in those areas... and so I did a Giggle search and there's your answer!

    I'm seeing more and more examples of two steps forward, one step back, due to new things that step on other things. Quality is also suffering in many cases, due to a perceived need for speed to market, make that money before people really think about it.


    Back on main topic:

    So regarding MSFS2020 specifically... do you guys think that the real problem is a lack of basic core setup documentation?

    And poor explanations of update changes and what they mean to the user/client/customer and the individual customer's setup?

    Do you feel MS itself ought to look closer at quality control, and user experience frustration, in order to improve things?

    I believe that the problem stems from Milton Friedman's analysis of American business. Friedman stated that business's are under no obligation to anyone other than their stockholders; Bill Gates along with his coneys took that message to heart.

    Microsoft's sole interest in MSFS2020 is to extract as much money out of the project as possible, while spending the least amount of money in the process.

    My guess is that Asobo receives about enough money from Microsoft for program maintenance and upgrades to support about two junior programmers with occasional tech support and guidance from one of the senior guys. They may also have a few minimum wage artistic types doing graphics stuff, aka eye candy. We can see from eight months of history that they move at a two steps forward, one step behind pace. I doubt that it will ever be more than that unless Google or Facebook or someone like that launches a Flight Simulator competitor.

    IMO, you'd better like what you have because anything better will be a long time coming.

    I'm in the UK and I'm done with it too. It's a great sim but the delivery is pitiful. We changed a script so you have to download the whole engine. I'll try it again when they finish it.
