Can't use offline

Recommended Posts

I purchased an Xbox X a couple of weeks ago, along with a download version of MSFS 2020. Due to a slow internet connection (6.5 Mbps) it took a week to download the 100+ gigabytes. I am trying to run the program offline. When I open MSFS and attempt to fly, I get this message:

“You are currently offline and do not have the optional Offline Mode files installed, so cannot start a new flight.” It says to check connection. I checked, and it is connected.

I clicked on the “EXIT AND DOWNLOAD OFFLINE CONTENT". I have done this twice and waited 24 hours for slow download. It didn’t  work.

ANY SUGGESTIONS? (not shouting)

I am an old geezer and wanted to do the flying instructions for entertainment. That’s the only program I downloaded

I have never found a way to fly offline with MSFS... but maybe someone has this figured out.. 😉

6.5 Mbps is actually just fine for online flight... only the downloads take forever, as you have discovered..

Not sure what you are saying... can you not fly with an online connection, as intended?

No it keeps saying I'm offline. If it check connecti9n, it shows I'm connected.

Each time I try to fly, it says "you're  currently offline." When I check the connection it says I'm connected to the internet. Is there something else  I have to do to be "online", other than having an internet connection? I downloaded the whole program online. How do I connect it to the internet?

I thought there was an option to fly Offline. Has no one actually tried this?
