    All gone well here so far. It took a while to reinstall everything but it’s all working now. Like others have said, it does seem to be a bit smoother now in VR.
    I’ve also had a dabble with the “experimental” multi-screen option. It was a little tricky adding extra windows and moving them around but so far is ok. I need to test it a bit more.

    Regards

    No issues here. I don't use VR, but I did notice the VFR map looks different now, as in better.

    No issues on this end either. Updated without a hitch,

    I am a triple monitor user and have been waiting patiently for this update since day 1. I am happy to say that I have had several trouble-free flights, one of them close to 3 hours long. I still have some minor tweaking to get the monitors where I want them, but what I have seen so far is just short of amazing.

    I used 3 monitors in FSX (still do actually) for a number of years now and I am really pleased with the first attempt in this new sim.

    my machine started running badly, frames rates down low, and then it would shut down. Finnally figured out that my water cooler on the processor was bad. Ordered a new radiator and fan, and running very well. I had noticed a slight drop in performace as the original water cooler was failing (That is my guess) but when I changed it....it is running 39+40 temps when in flight.

    Good update, the only thing running at full bells and whistles in DX12 is the NVIDIA Gforce RX 3070 as a few stutters, however, that will be addressed in the next NVIDIA Gfore driver update, out soon..... I'm happy at last when scanning the cockpit controls and cockpit windows in pilot view, they no longer act like a camera and more or less white out the window view in the transition, it now acts like the human eye...... in DX11 all's good this end.....

A couple quickie varied test flights showed all to seem to be working just fine and dandy.

    I am having a strange issue since installing update 10. The game loads, I can open world map, choose my airports (departure and arrival), hit fly. The game will go to the next screen but when I click on fly there the game crashes to the desktop.

    Flight sim ran perfect on my computer before this update.

    I am running Windows 10 64 bit (my system is not win11 compatible) and nvidia GTX 980 TI 6GB video card.

    I have updated win10, I am running the latest nvidia game driver available, uninstalled the flight sim including removing the packages from the users file and reinstalled the game, reset the options to default including all controllers, I even went through and checked the drivers for the controllers. The game still crashes. I am at a loss. I love the game and play every night up till I installed this update 2 nights ago.

    If anyone has any ideas to help me figure this out I would sure appreciate it.

    The update itself went without a hitch for me, but the DX12+DLSS caused blurred gauges and screens on my system (with the latest nVidia Studio driver) so I reverted to DX11+TAA and the previous Game Ready driver.
    I also couldn't stand the way that digital readouts, such as Altitude, would fade out and become unreadable while being adjusted/selected and would only fade back in when I stopped adjusting/selecting them. I've been using digital watches & clocks etc. since the 1970's and I've never seen a display fade out while being adjusted - as far as I know, LED's are either on or off.
    The embedded WT G1000NXi seems to have caught a few aircraft modders out, I've had to update four aircraft mods myself so that the sim doesn't freeze or CTD while launching, or while loading a flight.

    I too accidently installed the latest Nvidia Studio Driver (517.40) thinking it was the updated Game Ready Driver. Fired up the simulator with SU 10 installed but found the cockpit shaking badly in VR and artifacts galore. It almost made me sick and was completely unplayable. I reverted back to the newest Game Ready Driver (516.94) and now the artifacts are gone but the cockpit still shakes, although not near as violently, but it is playable. There was never any cockpit shaking before SU 10 update with the 516.94 Game Ready Driver. Does anyone else have this happen in VR after SU 10 update? Any suggestions. I am using Windows 11.
