Anyone Just Tired Of This

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there beside me just had enough of this FSX.

Tired of tweeking  and trying this and that with multiple reinstalls.

Is there any other computer game which demands so much from its user to have it work like it is suppose to?

I think when Prepar3d  offers its dx11 model for sale I will BURN my X Gold Edition!

Have YOU had enough?

Nope I can't get enough.  I live for the challenge.

 

On the other hand...I would pay $1000 for full blown 64bit sim that looks like my current setup of FSX but runs as smooth as silk.

I'll probably never understand why people feel the need to make posts like these other than to stir a pot. If I don't enjoy something I just move along and try something else. I don't see a need in telling the world about it.

I think some people get frustrated with technical hitches sometimes and feel the need to vent. It's understandable. Also, FSX tends to involve a significant investment of time and cash, which makes it harder to walk away from than say, some FPS that a gamer has tried and doesn't like.

Im, kinda with you on this Paul(topic starter Paul) and I will probably join your "burn FSX disc party" once I get settled with Prepar3dV2. No other PC program in history has had me swearing and frustrated me as much as FSX :blink: . Having that said, FSX, when things go smooth it have given me some of the greatest expiriences I ever had behind my computer and I've had a lot of joy using it. Guess I have a "love/hate" relationship with this software :wub:  :t0103: , but when I finally can remove it I will also enjoy the pleasure of burning it and pis# on the fire afterwards. ^_^

Thank god the FSX era is coming to an end :Party: for me.....

Silly me. And here I thought the whole idea of forums was to share one's thoughts.

Nope. I love a temperamental relationship....although it takes polyamory to make it work in the long run though.

 

 

Same for operating systems. Linux is hard to get going, but when it purrs, it purrs better than anything else. Windows still offers better entertainment but geez, sometimes it can be one kind of a b-[bSOD]

You have the need to tell the whole world how offended you get by posts like this, just like the OP has the need to tell the world how frustrated he is...

 

C'mon guys, no need to be "touchy" about a thread like this. Im a FSX fboy at heart and has always been that, and think FSX is quite impressive at what it can do even now after all these years it's been out. But it hasn't just been a joyride all the way, and I've been so frustrated at times that I have wanted too through up :bad: but also been exited many times too B) . All of you above that says "it has been running perfect for me always", can you really say with hands on your heart that you have never even once been slightly frustrated with FSX? Even a tiny bit....??

 

Now that prepar3d is around the corner I personally feel it's time to move on(some have already moved on to X-plane and good for them, it just wasn't for me), and having a "FSX disc burning party" finally when it seems the FSX era soon will be over and venting out all that frustration just feels soooo good, and yes I will burn my disc and pis# on the fire afterwards, literally speaking. And that will give me some feel of satisfaction back off all the time used swearing, tweaking, dissapointments, readjust settings after a new shiny payware addon has been installed, expensive hardware upgrades just too sqeak a frame or to out of it and praying for things too work after all these years this sim has been around.

 

So c'mon guys join the party and lets not start a "I love this vs that sim" :Party: Plenty of other threads to do that or not, don't ruin the party :lol: 

 

:drinks: Thanks to the OP for starting this thread so I could, unlease some frustration before the burning party begins, now I have to stop before my RP's hit rock bottom, I obviously stepped on some toes here and offended some fellow FSX fboys.. Sorry about that...

 

(Could also turn out that Prepar3dV2 will bring on new frustrations and continue bringing the tradition forward for that matter, but right now Im celebrating in advance and takes that as it comes, Im sure I will love and hate the "new" SIM just as much as the "old")

I love FSX, best sim I have ever had going all the way back to the subLogic days. Never any problems that weren't my fault. Used NickN's setup guide years ago and works like a charm.

 

It will be interesting to see if P3D magically cures the problems that some have had with FSX. Somehow I doubt it. Once people start loading it with addons, any number of driver and OS combinations, plus people trying to push it beyond what their hardware is able to handle, they'll probably start having the same types of problems they have with FSX. Since P3D is still 32 bit, has an extended draw radius slider to take it to 6.5, and a slider to set up to 4096 textures, people will go wild with HD textures and end up OOM'ing it just like they do with FSX. Then the complaints will start all over. Maybe for those that like to max everything without risk, FS9 would be a better option than P3D since it seems that you cant get CTDs or OOMs with it, bullet proof in a way.

I really think some people are addicted to the whole tweak thing. I always read about people having to reinstall FSX, move this, do this thing now its messed up here, etc. I've had my FSX installed on my Qosmio going on almost 4 years and thank God haven't had any issues. My system isn't all that either. I average 20-25 fps and it runs smooth. Are my sliders all maxed? Nope, but I'm very satisfied with the realism of my sim. Just enjoy the sim.

I have had no problems with FSX since last years move to Win8. Runs fine and smooth. I am trying to avoid dodgy third party addons.

I am tired of having a perfectly tuned FSX that suddenly breaks weeks later for no apparent reason.   -_-   Which is what I am experiencing now.  I can't do a single flight.  My game keeps crashing while I am doing pre-flight work on the ground.  I have no idea what is causing it.   It just fatal errors with a crash error message.   It finally ID itself in the crash log this time as the NTDLL.DLL file causing the fault... a well known error that I thought I crushed months ago... now it is back for no apparent reason.   It makes me want to find the original programmers and beat them all with a rubber chicken.

I dont spend much time tweaking, infact, I've spent about 15 minutes tweaking since I upgraded my computer. Its rock stable and it performs alright

There's nothing wrong with FSX. It's a very solid platform. It's all those payware add-ons that cause it to bloat.

 

I have been using it for 7 years without problems. I only use a collection of tweaks that I reapply every time I format my computer. No endless tweaking. FSX has given me so much fun over the years; it doesn't deserve to burn in hell.

I believe that simmers love the challenge, if everything worked it could become boring. Besides tweaking my sims FS9-FSX,  I also have to tweak my golf game all the time lol. Happy problem solving my friends.
