Wondering why it’s downloading an additional 27.5 Gigs … I already pre installed 97 Gigs. Thought I’d be ready to go…


‘Day One’ patch seems fairly usual. It’ll replace a good chunk of the 97GB I expect.

Weird. What about rebooting the console? There should be a 27 GB update.

I am trying that now

Updating now
Thank you


peripherals, what works what doesnt?
do any legacy controls work?
i guess the logitech panels are a no go?
chances of these for the future?

I downloaded the 27GB update and am able to launch MSFS however I am stuck at the installation manager screen. “Checking for updates” and I can’t get past that. Waiting for 20 min already.

so… How do you navigate on xbox? I cannot select any option in the content manager… I had to connect a USB mouse to select anything. This should be possible using the controller only right?

In one review, they said that since they were playing FS on the PC before, it synced their settings and they had to connect a keyboard and mouse and reset the controller settings to default. So if you were playing on the PC… you know what to do :smiley:

Hi , even though I pre installed a couple of days ago , my update is another 74 gigs . I thought it was 24 gigs …

This actually worked! Thanks for the help. A bit weird that setting the toggle cursor button didn’t work though…
