Fsx Steam

Recommended Posts

Hi Captains,

 

 I did post this topic some minutes back but it did not show up hence once again.

 

 

 This may have already been discussed before but I do not seem to find it.

 

 I have done my research on the net and what I see are a mixed results as to the performance and stability of FSx steam against the boxed version.

 

 I tend to run it on my laptop like the boxed version even though I have a desktop which I seldom use now. Do not intend to use ORBX or PMDG stuff except Carenado / Alabeo and REX Direct,

 

I would appreciate all reviews from users who are using the steam version so that I can decide if I should purchase it.

 

 

all help appreciated

 

Thanks

I have it on a modest computer to current standards:

Phenom IIX6 2.8ghz, 8gb ram, Radeon 6950 2GB, SSD for Windows 7 64 and FSX, conventional HD to other programs.

I am very pleased with FSX Steam, I do not use ORBX,use only REX 4 Direct, FSUIPC and SweetFX.

Flight 737NGX, some Carenado, RealAir, A2A, Aerosoft Airbus, Csim 777...(Csim777 is the heaviest)

My long flights do not exceed 120 minutes, so do not know problems.

I have FSX Steam since launch, it encountered problems while used along with  FSX  box on the same computer, but I changed it.

He still does not work with Steam in offline mode, but according DTG likely problem solved in next week.

I'd purchase it on next Steam sales.

There is no hurry to install it.
