Fenix High-Fidelity A320 for MSFS 2024

Technically, it’s a different, standalone game. Presumably, it’s a different game because they’ve had to update or change the engine, but that’s just speculation. The add-ons should all still be 100% compatible though.

Anything that’s not 100% SDK compliant - I wouldn’t be so sure about what does or doesn’t work day 1.

Don´t panic. If it´s not compatible with FS2024 out of the box, it will be updated in one or two years, and back to the (virtual) skies… (V2 is one year in the making now…).

None of you did live the transition between XP10 to XP11? This will be similar for sure. Addons will be 80-90% compatible and developers only will have to adjust them. Only that.
My concern is: what will happen to those of us who decide not to buy the MS2024? Will 3rd party addon developers continue giving support and updates to addons of FS2020?

Well what we are afraid was the 10% incompatible are those deep in systems study level ones, which are the main thing some of us are interested in.

And as for your last question I am afraid most will at most offer support for existing platform and not much new stuffs coming

Don´t worry FS2024 is completely the same with the same folder structure. If you buy and install FS2024 as stand-alone and have the Fenix not install because of “path not found” or other errors the Fenix team will immediatly patch the installer to choose between FS2020 and FS2024 in days :wink:

Doing such a blasphemous act of triple-A-denial is highly unlikely. But people do strange things so it´s not completely impossible. Doing so will lead to heavily outdated graphics, outdated weather models and no up to date graphics clouds, no functional weather radar because the old outdated FS2020 had notoriously no weather radar API support, and no fun and joy in life anymore because of not having the newest greatest and best, and missing out all the superb new weather phenomena and nimbus stratus cirrus and several other features.

Probably preset/static weather for missions only. Even in MSFS2020 static weather looks 10x better than live weather.

We don’t know if Asobo is planning to release weather API in MSFS2024 or did I miss something? The trailer seems to be aimed at people who want missions and challenges.

MSFS 2024 trailer was released during a “gaming” event, so it not surprisingly has that angle to it.

I think we will likely see more from the traditional simulation side in the coming weeks - certainly during FlightSimExpo is a good bet.

It has been confirmed in one of the many other threads that the tornado was simulated in live weather and its not scripted. Came from an interview at the xbox event i believe.

Sorry off topic here

Yes, I saw that after I posted this. Good to know.

From what I’ve seen, FS2024 is a FS2020 2.0. Same graphics, same APIs, same meterology. It could be a 2020 DLC, and if it’s not, it’s because they want to get our money again. I am sorry that not paying again for the same product is a blasphemous act for you.

Do you have a crystal ball or do you come from the future? I don’t know where you get such information from when no one from Asobo has officially said anything like that.

Why would they change it if it’s still the same engine? FSX had the same folder structure as FS2002. Maybe even older editions but it’s where I started.

First google search answer when Googling “are MSFS2020 addons compatible with MSFS 2024”

Microsoft confirms MSFS 2024 is a full-on new simulator compatible with “virtually” all the existing add-ons

Google is a well-known and renowed so called “internet search engine” found here:

No need to google that. The official FAQ was posted on this forum.

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024 FAQ - Microsoft Flight Simulator / News & Announcements - Microsoft Flight Simulator Forums

To be honest, I don’t get this hysteria around MSFS 2024. I’m pretty sure Microsoft/Asobo are not going to saw off the branch they’re sitting on by releasing something that would render all current addons for MSFS 2020 useless.

Where do they say it will have the same folder structure? Yes, I bet it will be like this, but saying that right now and affirming it so flatly is pure speculation. You don’t even know if third-party addon developers will need to do some minor tweaking to make their products compatible. It was necessary every time the version was changed in Prepar3D, and that was the same game and not another different simulator. Why not here? That the addons are compatible does not mean there cannot be changes.

Reading the tea leaves, continued compatibility would be up to Fenix.

we even don’t know yet (after 3 years) if they release WXR API for 2020, they always promising alot, but at the end, no clear information and a lot of excuses… :angry:

That’s not entirely true. WXR was and has only useable with Asobo based aircraft, which makes sense. Early this year they had talked about talking with MB about opening their weather access. Nothing ever happened with that. Since Fenix is not an Asobo aircraft there isn’t any WXR compatibility. If you REALLY want a WXR use the 787/Longitude, etc…

More accurately it’s more of 6 months and we don’t know if an API function will ever be able to be used with the Asobo/MB relationship.
