This really isn’t about PC and Hardware, but I couldn’t find any proper place to post it, so here it is. When I first tried to run this software, it forced me to create an Xbox Live account and log into it. Is that required to use this sim?
Yes, it is required. It allows you to play and connect to the servers.
OK, thanks! I’m now in the looong downloading process (91GB); seems to be downloading much slower than my “speedtest” download speed of 50mb/sec.
I found an article about speeding up the download and it worked. I’d say it’s downloading about five times as fast as before.
