I truly dislike self promotion, but in this case I’m really just trying to help MSFS20 grow both inside (Asobo) and outside (3rd party devs). The better they all do, the better we all do.
I know some will want to argue the point of not wanting to pay for what should already be in sim or is even still to come, but to me… to have the option, to have or not have, is far better than no choice at all! I love making videos so for me this is a no brainer. For me it’s worth the incalculable hours of MSFS20 Replay fun!
If you, like me, just don’t want to wait for a replay option then…
FS Playground is a really fun option. It does seem complicated at first, but that’s just because it’s outside the box.
I’ve had a chance to use it for a few hours over the last few days and the most complicated part has been just alt-tabbing back and forth.
You need the app on the screen to hit replay or slide the playback forward or reverse at will, but then you have to minimize it to hide it so you can record your video without it on screen.
It’s really simple and does a great deal more than just show you replays. I love that you can save the files and revisit them. Especially if you have to take the trash out immediately when asked to do so!.. (Yes Honey, I’d be happy to bless you!)
fsplayground’s replay app truly helps satisfy the extreme video replay cravings I have NOW. With all that’s going on in the World, I’m not sure if we will see a solution from Asosbo anytime soon. Perhaps we will, but right now is right now!
I am not part of the dev team, nor am I being paid. I have just had time to play around with it and I enjoy it immensely. It was $25 bucks well spent for me!
Sadly not, at least when I tried with the A320neo (with A32NX Add-On). Gear was working, but no spoilers and no reverse thrust. Not sure about ailerons and rudder. But you can extend the spoilers manually while watching the replay, thats what I did.
I have been using FSPlayground for a few days now and can really recommend it. I have no connection with the vendor (except as a customer) but have found the app solid - no crashes to date no issues. There is a learning curve but no more than with any serious add on and you don’t have to be an expert to get the basics anyway. For me it has really improved my MFFS experience by the replay and teleport features. Not expensive for what it is and support is also very good.
what is the free one called? FSPlayground has support for ‘teleport’ ie takes you to a location without exiting to main menu and has FF support so thats why I went for it but I’d be interested in knowing about the free one.
