Discussion + Poll: Hotfix

Three dots … download updates

I still wont be able to fly until we can look around and use a joystick.
It’ll a first time for me without flying since it’s release… :frowning:

Very dissatisfied with this release!

Jetways and odd LOD pop up STILL HAPPENING at payware sceneries! This sim has caused me more frustration than any other game I’ve ever purchased. How is it that after 1 year, the sim is still in such a state?

@Jummivana any word on a hot fix that fixes airport scenery issues mistake by Asobo?

That’s higher than balanced. I consequently crash with the FBW Airbus if that profile is set to ‘High’ or something called ‘Ultimate performance’.

That airplane only wants to fly when I put it on ‘Balanced’.

Looks like this for me:

(Only started with SU5 by the way… up til SU4, the highest setting wasn’t a problem…)

Performing well. Short flight in UK, TBM - FL10 ground tex’s seem better.

Only mods I have are SPAD, CRJ, Navigraph, all WT’s, Bijan seasons, Zinertek airport graphics.


Just completed a flight LAX to SAN no problem, except once I landed and shut off the plane, when the page pops up to say I completed a flight, it gave me the sound of that happening but just… hung. It wasn’t frozen. The game was never “Not Responding” in task manager, but it never actually showed me the box to click OK and when I hit ESC the pause menu didn’t come up. Anyone else get this? It’s a new one for me…

Well, I’m done. Downloaded the patch. Loaded up a flight, hit Fly, CRASH.

Rebooted PC, same thing, loaded up a flight, hit Fly, CRASH.

If anyone is interested in the dump file:

This has gone beyond annoying. It is a joke. Each update/patch makes the game worse for those affected. The point has now been reached where the game is literally no longer playable. What more is there to say.

Just finished a 125 mile flight. (on PC)
Aircraft used: FlyByWire A32NX

ILS Approach worked perfectly.
No CTD. (Never had before)
FPS boost from 30-40 to 60-85
GPU ran between 90 and 99 percent on ultra/mixed settings
CPU ran on about 20 cores. Temps very good
Ram used was around 12 Gig.
OS: Windows 10 Version 21H2

So far a success for me.


Still getting CTD within about 30 seconds of loading into the main menu.

Community folder is of course empty.

Can I ask you if you’re playing on xbox or PC and also are you experiencing the mouse disappearing issue? Thanks

This new update is like coming down from drinking 12 cups of coffee and being awake for 48 hours. Just very jittery. Looking around (using TrackIR) there is this staccato stutter to everything. Everything just sort of hops and skips as you swing your head. Just putrid. Pre-1.18 experience was superb.


I am on PC and my mouse pointer disappears in the loading screens

Try deleting UsrCfg.opt.
Should be harmless, as the sim (sorry the game) recreates it.
But you can always backup the file just in case.
Then restart the game, Xing fingers :slight_smile:

Just applied the fix to SU5, and rebooted PC. Clean Community folder.

As soon as I click on Fly Now, CTD…

Haven’t you got enough problems with Flight Sim without using a bug ridden early release of Windows 11 ?


Small update
Download no problem
Install no problem
Looked at my CPU and GPU usage back to normal
Washed out look fixed
Now doing a test flight will report later.
Such a small update why was it not noticed before release? I have never seen so many people upset.


my impressions since this hotfix: positive. no CTD, No issues on fbw a320 latest dev update.
no stutters like before this update.

thank you

My SU4 graphic is back, crisp and beautiful, that “over exposure” still remains but this time it makes the graphic more realistic, I am confused. Anyway, I am happy flying now!

Not fixing the altitude gauge was a bold choice. :frowning:

How is the Altitude fix? I noticed the Airport Altitude was closer, like within 50 feet of published altitude, but now (airport altitude of 5800’) ATC says to climb to 3000’. So now is there a new issue?
