    MSFS must have attracted the worlds most incompetent computer users because it's been like this since day one and the majority of people are having problems???

    MY version of MSFS 2020 must be defective? Cuz even on my obviously 'less than ideal' desktop PC using my 'less than greatest' sim hardware, the durn thing just kinda keeps on working.

    I did not buy a sixty buck game expecting it to rival a NASA shuttle flight simulator either. I was promised great, nay stunning graphics which it does provide. I was promised the whole world at my fingertips... and by golly there it is. I was promised a variety of aircraft I could pretend I was flying and it does not disappoint.

    Does it still have bugs & glitches? I reckon so but honestly I've not experienced any that weren't caused by either MY hardware or MY ignorance of how stuff in the sim worked and needed to be set up. I see Asobo making constant upgrades and working to fix the bugs and I appreciate it is a Herculean task. But again, the thing only cost me like $60 and in my 72 years I've spent a whole lot more for a whole lot less. lol

    Quick random quotes from others.
    You don't need to be a genius or own the game. lol

    I’m seriously starting to lose patience with this simu…, each update has its own set of bugs, it’s been 3 days that I’ve been struggling to make just one flight!

    since a week I cannot fly the a320.

    Initial download was accidentally disrupted before completion. Restarting the game and it is now persistently stuck at checking for update screen.

    This simulator is unplayable post recent updates, (probably last 3). FPS is less then 15 , tried everything .

    In a group flight with a large number of planes (20-30) this evening and the sim is freezing once every second and affects everyone regardless of their computer system.

    After updating to the 1.15.8, recent update, I can not select live weather, It is disabled

    Hello flying friends, please help !!! I have been trying to download the update again for several days but humanly it is impossible,

    My point is that people are having problems, whichever sim they use. It is the nature of forums that they attract posts from people asking for solutions.

    The difference is that there are 2 million currently flying msfs and I suspect a lot less still flying each of the outdated sims.

    I said I would not be responding to you. And that still holds. Since this is not supposed to be a kiddie forum, I am responding only to mature adults. Yes, you are often the center of the discussion, but isn't that what you want?

    Kiddie is when a grown man gets really upset because you are saying his computer game is no good.
    The rest of us are just having fun and enjoying life!

    I don't know if my 2 cents will be of interest to anyone, but here they are:
    Last year I bought a new computer with MSFS in mind. It was my first Windows 10 computer, and is only slightly better than the "recommended" specs (far from the "ideal" specs). Even so, MSFS runs like a charm from day zero.

    I only regret having bought the Premium Deluxe version because I'm only interested in VFR on light and vintage aircraft, and I quickly found myself deleting most of the heavy and medium default aircraft, lessons, etc and using only some add-on aircraft, so I could have done perfectly with the Standard version.

    That aside, all the problems I've encountered with updates, etc have always been minimal and easily solved thanks to the community. After the last update, for example, I'm one of those who see "not installed" in Content Manager all the items in my Community folder, but they're actually present in-game and working fine, so it's just a cosmetic issue to me and I know it will be fixed soon.

    Even so, there have been moments when I've missed some of the enjoyment I had with previous versions, specially regarding vintage aircraft and scenery. Since MSFS can perfectly coexist in the same machine with FS9 or FSX, I decided to give them a try, starting with FS9. Gosh, I hardly could look at those comparatively primitive graphics, which not so long ago I found wonderful. I felt almost like watching PSION Flight Simulator, a sim that I used to load from a cassette tape on my Sinclair ZX Spectrum in the 80s, if you grant me the overstatement. I'm afraid MSFS graphics might have spoiled me forever.

    Anyhow, once discarded FS9, now I plan to do the same with FSX, just in case. Problem is that the boxed FSX activation process is virtually impossible on Windows 10, so I'm waiting for the next Steam sale in order to get the Steam version and give it a try. I will let you know my impressions, if someone is interested.

    To each his own. Happy flying.
