CFS-3 Review

Recommended Posts

Myself and a number of members of Digital-Flight have just finished struggling with trying to whip CFS-3 into a usable configuration. Between us we have tried every published fix we can find and yet problems with pauses and stuttering persist. In addition, the version of DirectX that CFS-3 installs seems to have broken the ability to join multiplayer sessions in both CFS-2 and MSFS2002. A quick look through AVSIM's own combat forum will show that these problems are by no means rare. My question is, how can you publish a multi-part glowing review of a product that clearly has major problems on a wide variety of machines?Tony Gondola,Digital-Flight

Tony, our review findings are those that the reviewers experience personally. While we're aware that a number of readers are having installation and configuration problems, experience stutters, and even locked-up computers, CFS3 installed and ran as our reviewers reported in their individual review segments. Note the range of computer power stated in the 'Test System' box and you'll see that not all were "high-end" systems. Additionally other Avsim staffers (me included) are running CFS3 without difficulty (though one has reported problems similar to those reported in the forums).To be objective, the reviewer must report what he or she personally observes. While it is disappointing that CFS3 evidently is not performing as expected for some, we nevertheless stand by findings based on our reviewers' personal systems and have rated the product on that basis.
