So when does it end?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know when exactly multiplayer will be shut down? My guess is in less than 15 minutes, when today's aerocache is over.

Loading fine here. Looks to be a few people in multiplayer and even a rotated Aerocache of the Day.

Well, I just jumped on where some guys were on. They were talking in spanish about the Flight Toolkit.........

Clicking "Quick Match" sometimes gets me to sessions where 0/16 players are in, so I'm wondering whether they've started the shut down process yet. Aerocaches are still going on.

It's over. The aerocaches are not working for me anymore, and I guess multiplayer is gone as well.

Yep, Aerocaches, MoTD, and everything else requiring the Microsoft Flight server (the connection to which is depicted by that little circular indicator) is gone. Multiplayer still seems to function.

I am in a session as well right now but the other players are acting weirdly. There's one Carbon Cub underwater, an RV-6A making weird turns with its engine off and a P-51D flying towards the horizon.

Main site is down as well! :(

Its over.

 

Looks like they're slowly unplugging everything. I really hope that they will never unplug the servers that let us download the DLC at least.

     Well it looks like they are already doing that! We had a recent problem with GFWL which did not allow users to log in and download their DLC. If Microsoft really cared about their consumers, they wouldn't do that.

Its Microsoft... you never know!

Whichever match I join, all other players seem to be behaving very weirdly (aircraft flying in weird patterns or remaining on the ground or water with engines off, triangles in place of planes even though I have downloaded all of them). Plus when I asked about the aerocaches in the chat, nobody responded...  :wacko:

It was always in the back of my mind whether DTG would take over tha' servers. It seems so unlikely that I didn't even wanna dream about it.  :(

Aww... Just realized I picked up some aerocaches last night, but didn't run the toolkit to update it... Guess I'll have to do them again with the new toolkit.

At least they'll provide FSX with a new multiplayer solution that might be similar to Flight's.

Hopefully they don't do the same 16 player limit though. That part did suck. I ran into that limit often before Alaska was released.

Same here Steve.  Multiplayer in Alaska working again. 

Perhaps it's all about what server you land on when logging in.
