  1. Do Black Square Products ever go on sale? If so, when could that be expected?
  2. Hmmm... Not sure it is ok. I fly with my son and he's on a later version with everyone else and we can't see each other on multiplayer. Of course, maybe that issue is something else and we assumed it was a version problem incorrectly but why would some people be on a different version? He uses the standard version and I use the Premium Deluxe so maybe that explains the version difference. But... Why the problem of us not being able to see each other in MultiPlayer?
  3. After a Win 10 update there's been a bit switch somewhere that is preventing MS from updating... Its not that it gets hung on the MS update screen, it just flashes it on the screen and then bypasses it so I never get past V1.36.20. Sim works fine but is a down-rev which makes Multiplayer impossible. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with same exact issue. Something is hung in there. I'm now willing to start from scratch but not even sure how to wipe out everything as FS2020 seems like it IS a virus at this point. Store, X box, X box bar, etc... It's a pretzel maze of stupid install programming. Does anyone know of a way to eradicate FS2020 completely and start over in the hopes I can get past v1.36.20? Running Deluxe Premium 40th Anniversary Edition. Grrr... Makes me think this is one piece of software that I'm considering Steam for when 2024 comes out. MS can't even make something that works right when purchased from their own store. It's a nightmare of nonsense.
  4. My download manager flashes on the screen when I start up but then it bypasses so I can never update. I've tried just about everything, and I'm about to strong arm into just uninstalling then reinstalling. I think the main thing I'm about to lose is the joystick, throttle, rudder, and Tobei Eye tracker profile. Is there a way to save those?
  5. Ok, sorry to be the NOOB but the OPs post saying they were on 1.36.20 caught my eye... I've got the premium version and all mandatory updates installed. My son (standard version) is on 1.37.12. How can this be? Discovered the other night when trying to fly multiplayer together and we can't see each other. My sim thinks it's updated but reports that its on 1.36.20. Can anyone help?
  6. I thought Black Square's gig was that they don't mess with the FDE at all. They just use the stock default flight model and tweak everything else. But... I'd heard that for this plane, they ARE making their own flight model. Does anyone know for sure?
  7. Does Black square have a website? I can see why the fidelity level of the instrumentation and such gets people excited but is there any information on the flight model? I really like a plane that has a great flight model. I'd heard (incorrectly?) that for this plane, BS was planning to make their own flight model like an A2A plane. Was that incorrect info?
  8. Is there another way? I have a small KB for my home Cockpit setup and I need to set up cockpit views using the numpad. Any suggestions? Can I just use the Win 10 built in e-KB in Win 10? Or... some other means?
  9. Dumb question time... I'm using Win 10 and a 4090. I noticed there are options in the sim for DX11 and DX12. When people are referring to "running in DX12" in this thread is that simply a bit switch to DX12 in FS2020 or do I need to totally install a new version of DX on my PC. My understanding is that Win 10 uses DX11 natively, and I'd need to install DX12 to use DX12 features. Or... Do I just select DX12 in FS2020 and the Frame Generation choice will no longer be greyed out?
  10. Thanks guys. Very much appreciate the feedback! The type I'm looking for would be relatively simple... to get the "feeling" of flying a heli and for sightseeing in FS2020 near areas where I have an interest in seeing the scenery in areas like the ORBX airports/regions... Sounds like the ultimate experience for flight may be in XP12 so in that context what would be the best bet?
  11. Per subject... Or the PMDG 737 of Helis... You get the idea. Are there any "study level" sort of helicopters out there that are comparable in quality to the aforementioned planes? Flight modeling is the most important priority to me. Looking for something that's considered best in terms of "feel" relative to a real chopper. Systems modeling is a second priority... Any recommendations?
  12. I've got about 30 ORBX sceneries/airports. Is there a way to easily delineate them from the defaults?
  13. I loved the RealAir Turbine Duke back in P3d. But... the main reason it was so appealing was the outstanding flight model. I'm a junkie for a great flight model. Don't all the Black Square planes just use the default flight models and update the instruments and external models only?
  14. New to MS 2020. Noticed my Flysimware Cessna 414 in a thing called "My Hanger". It looks amazing in there... I'd like to put all my payware separately in that area. Is that possible or is it something the developer decides. I have the A2A Commanche 250 and the PMDG 737-600 and want to add both there to keep things organized sine I wont be flying any default planes. Can one force planes into the My Hanger area?
