AreoFly FS2 - DVD vs Steam For VR

Recommended Posts

I was wondering it someone would tell me their experience with each. I have the DVD version and have been playing it in VR for about a year.

I have upgraded my computer a few times and now have a computer that will handle VR very well. I was thinking of moving to the Steam addition but want some input first.

 

Thanks  Harry

I cant speak to the DVD version, but the Steam version works very well.

AF is the sim I enjoy the most in VR.

Thanks for your reply.

I did not mention I have serveral addons that I purchased online for the DVD version. I can not find any info on if they can be used with the Steam version.

May I ask which addons specifically? (though my first guess is that they should all work fine)

Hi

Thanks for your reply. North East is one and Switzerland are the main two.

You should probably just make sure that Aerosoft stuff is going into your Documents folder in the Aerofly FS 2/Addons/Scenery Subfolder

It does not need to go to your Steam Folder

One more question. 

I also have FSX and use the VR for that as well.

Is there a benefit to the Steam version from a performance standpoint.

Thanks

I've only ever had the steam version and had no real niggles at all for what that is worth.
