  1. I got some icing on a recent (post SU6) flight, even though I have it switched off?
  2. That's happening to me. No update found in store; start MSFS and it tells me there's a mandatory update and takes me to the Store - still no update. Any ideas? I'm losing the will to live with this sim!!
  3. Folks, I upgraded my AVG Antivirus which also included AVG TuneUp (and some other modules new to me). Since I always like to keep my PC tuned, I tried AVG TuneUp - BIG MISTAKE!! Tried running MSFS 2020 after that and got the Black screen and blue progress line at the bottom which only got to 80% (after some while) and then stopped. Tried an number of things (eg clearing Community etc etc) but no luck. Looked like it was going to have to be a complete reinstall of 2020, but luckily I had a backup from a few days prior so restored and all now good. Avoid using AVG TuneUp - it'll mess up your MSFS 2020 installation.
  4. I stopped and restarted MSFS and it seems to have recommenced were it left off. Seems to be working again. Fingers crossed!!
  5. My download is stuck on [104/148]. Its just looping. Any ideas?
  6. Yeah or mine in Cobol, Digital (DEC) Basic, Digital Dibol and ICL Plan. Now I bet that nobody on here has heard of ICL Plan and possibly not DEC Dibol? Now that's showing my age 😄
  7. I had the same problem yesterday (see "Are MS Servers Down" topic). I've never had the problem before. Tried everything without success (short of reinstalling FlightSim again) and then I found this after some research: https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016892819-Access-to-the-content-servers-is-currently-unavailable-error-message-Microsoft-Store-version- I followed the instructions precisely and all is working again.
  8. Well, what a faf!! Woke up this morning hoping the good fairies had fixed my problem overnight - but no such luck!! Tried all the various ideas found on Avsim (short of reinstalling MS2020) with no joy. Off to some Mr Google research and found this: https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016892819-Access-to-the-content-servers-is-currently-unavailable-error-message-Microsoft-Store-version- Followed it to the letter and BINGO we're all good to go!! All now well again.
  9. Nope, not for me. Tried a PC reboot and it still won't connect. Marketplace is greyed out which is a sure sign no server connection. What's happening now with this thing!!! I'll pack it in for today and maybe it'll sort itself out overnight.
  10. Doesn't appear to be connecting to servers and I can't change server - just says Automatic with the circle thingy spinning. Noticed this on a flight just now and the ground textures were rubbish - so nothing was streaming.
  11. One thing I've learnt in this life and in particular with IT (which I've worked in all my life) is:- make no assumptions!! Though I do hope you're right.
  12. How do you know that this relates to a Hotfix for the performance issue - I see no details?
  13. Another all too common example of a company taking the wrong fork in the road.
  14. If MS/Asobo are doing stuff on the server side to address this, then they should tell us all eg., "we understand some users are having performance issues which we're working to address on our servers. We are sorry for your inconvenience and frustration. Please be patient, we're working hard to find a fix" That would be good customer service and at least we'd know they're doing something about the problem!!
  15. Not happy at all!! Prior to Sim Update 3 I was getting a relatively steady 40+fps. No stutters or freezes. I'm now getting random stutters lasting 1 to 3 minutes with momentary freezes and fps dropping to 10!! Just started a flight and was getting 10fps on the menus???? CPU and GPU are not being overworked. Selected a flight and it started with 10fps - totally unusable. Nothing else has changed and before anyone suggests it - I've deleted the AI Ship Traffic from my community folder. THIS IS AN URGENT PROBLEM THAT MS AND ASOBO NEED TO GET A FIX FOR ASAP!!!
  16. a) Extremely exaggerated icing visuals. Provide an option to switch it off. b) Live weather that doesn't show snow on ground and falling when it actually is! c) Terrain spikes
  17. In all of the test that I documented earlier AI Traffic has been OFF.
  18. Did some further tests as follows: Same flight EGGP (Liverpool) to EGBB (Birmingham) with Live Weather enabled and Rolling Cache disabled and Working Title G3000 only enabled (WT CJ4 and WT G1000 disabled). Flying the Longitude. Flight 6 ILS approach to RW 33 (all other tests above were RNAV approaches to RW33). This flight worked - NO CTD!! Landed without incident. Flight 7 RNAV approach to RW 33 again. Failure - CTD again in descent passing circa 8,000!! Flight 8 ILS approach to RW 33 - just checking again!! Once again this flight worked - NO CTD!! Landed without incident. So, seems its WT G3000 Mod when using RNAV approaches??
  19. Nvidia driver is rolled back prior to tests. Just did the same test EGGP to EGBB in the FBW A320 and all was good - landed without incident!! So I stick to my theory that my CTD's since Dec 22 are down to the WT G3000 Mod as described above.
  20. My Rolling Cache was disabled in all the tests I carried out above - so Rolling Cache wasn't my CTD problem?
  21. I've done some extensive testing on this CTD issue. The problem seems to be with the Working Title G3000 mod (I've been using the up to date mod V0.3.4. Here's are the tests: Rolling Cache deleted and switched off in all cases and Live Weather enabled in all. Flight 1 - Cessna Longitude with WT G3000 mod and Longitude Flight Model Mod. EGGP (Liverpool) to EGBB (Birmingham) RW 33 RNAV Approach selected. Approaching EGBB descending thru 8,000 CTD! Flight 2 - Cessna Longitude with WT G3000 mod but Longitude Flight Model Mod REMOVED. EGGP (Liverpool) to EGBB (Birmingham) RW 33 RNAV Approach selected. Approaching EGBB managed to get down to 4,000 but then CTD!!! I noticed on both of above flights just before the CTD's the boarder around the inserted map in the PFD started to flicker, then CTD. Flight 3 - Cessna Citation with Working Title CJ4 Mod V0.8.3. EGGP (Liverpool) to EGBB (Birmingham) RW 33 RNAV Approach selected. This worked perfectly - landed without problems!! Flight 4 - TBM with WT G3000 mod. EGGP (Liverpool) to EGBB (Birmingham) RW 33 RNAV Approach selected. Got down to 3,000 turning onto final and CTD!! Flight 5 - Cessna Longitude with all Working Title Mods (G1000, G3000, CJ4) REMOVED and Longitude Flight Model Mod REMOVED. EGGP (Liverpool) to EGBB (Birmingham) RW 33 RNAV Approach selected. This worked perfectly - landed without problems. This was the 1st time I've completed a flight in the Longitude since the December 22nd update. So, it would appear, at least for me, the culprit is the Working Title G3000 Mod. I hope it gets fixed quickly as I can't do without it!! Haven't tried any of the G1000 aircraft to check if the problem is there or not also.
  22. Thanks I already tried that - made no difference - still CTD's.
  23. Not yet - want to try a couple of other things first
  24. Unfortunately deleting and switching off the Rolling Cache didn't work for me - CTD again in descent passing 12,000! Asobo need to get this sorted - its now unusable since the update. That's a CTD every time I use it and always in the descent but at various altitudes.
