Surely the point is this: in a situation where a load of people are running exactly the same app on different machines and one group are getting on just fine whereas the other are suffering CTDs, then the obvious place to look is differences in their setups. It could be any one of the following:
- hardware and config, including overclocking and non-standard bios settings, drivers etc
- software environment, including OS version and config, other apps running in background or foreground
- app mods and non-standard setup and any conflicts there
The evidence from the thousands of people running MSFS2020 just fine is that fundamentally the software is sound save for some feature improvements required.
those suffering CTDs however must, in the first instance at least, look to their own setup and ask themselves “why me?”. The answer is almost certainly one or more of the causes outlined above. It’s very difficult to diagnose the specific issue impacting one person’s PC experience, but almost impossible for the software developers to do it on entirely different systems and setups. Broad-based testing and diagnostic tools can help, but it’ll never help everyone.
finally, remember the few with the greatest issues (plus the trolls, of course) will always shout the loudest and cloud the impression given on forums such as this. Unfortunately, in more ways than one, the spotlight‘s on them.
