Flight Simulator X Trial Version - Date Published: 9/29/2006 - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads

Excellent. This version is perfect for finding out how the Release version of FSX is going to work performance wise. I also have the full beta version, I know that I'll be able to copy over the planes, but I wonder if it's actually possible to copy over all the scenery as well...

downloading now, very slow though, looks like its goin to take a couple of hours to download at only 120ish KB/sec.did not keep the original demo as it ran so badly so i'll have to miss out on the beaver.If i decide ti get it though i will either have to delete stacks of software or buy another/bigger HD.

Hi there,Got it downloaded and installed.It seems faster than the old demo with the same settings.Also all the missing scenery is back in. Proper cars and lorries, the fences are transparent and aircraft cast shaddows on themselves properly :)MarkDell XPS Gen3 (3.6GHz/800FSB) | 2GB DDR SDRAM | 360GB SATA RAID 0 | 256MB ATI Radeon X850 PE (Catalyst 6.5) | Audigy 2 ZS Sound | Saitek X52 | WindowsXP Pro (SP2) | DirectX 9.0c

Obviously, its a much improved demo. But what happened to those nice colorful rooftops? :)j/k.There are not much lights during the night... Maybe I need to some mods inthe cfgs.I haven't tried running on my Dell XPS Gen2.But on the conroe Core 2 Duo, Over Clocked to 3.3G (and nVidia 7600 GT 256MB) with almost all sliders to the right.. I get a steady 15fps with default settings.Manny

Yes, very much improved, not only what can be shown, but the smoothness is also much better. Having a hoot with the Robinson Heli.Still having a small problem with the cockpit textures blurring when the system is under pressure, but all in all, a much improved effort.I am sure a small upgrade to my two year old machine will make a huge difference. Thanks a million MS FSX devs...Chris Porter:-outtaPerthWestern Australia

This new version runs much better on this machine than either the prior demo or the beta. FPS are way up and no trace of the blurries at all. But...it looks like there is still an unresolved issue with the autogen impact. Even a Sparse setting will cut my framerates in half (from 38-40 down to 18-20). That kind of decrease shouldn't be there. Anyone have any thoughts?DougP4 3.2E @ 3.680 (1.385 vCore - 230 FSB)Asus P4C800-E Deluxe (BIOS 1019)2 x 512MB Corsair TWINX CXM3700 (3-4-4-8)1.5 TB of WD HDDATI X850XT PEA-Open 1648 AAP RipperPlextor 708A WriterEnermax 431W PSUInwin Case
