Hi, With the Steam version of FSX on sale for a song now, I'm starting to wonder if it is time to retire my good old box edition. I'm one of the few who never had any real problems with FSX box, it seemed to always work well, and ran smoothly, even with add-on aircraft and Active Sky Next. But the reviews I'm reading say that the Steam edition is even better than the box version, and that P3D is amazing as well. If it was just a matter of switching base programs there would be no issue at all, but I have a lot of money in add-on aircraft. I don't know if all of them work with Steam edition for example, and I know that most will not work with P3D. Some of my fleet are very very ancient and I hate to see them go, but I understand if they must, like the Flight1 ATR and the Level D-767. I guess I'm asking for advice on what I should do as far as upgrading, keeping in mind all of payware aircraft (I have learned that ASN will work no matter what sim). Or should I just stay with my old dinosaur of FSX BOX edition? Or maybe say forget all my payware and just go to P3D (licensing arguments aside for now). How has your luck been with FSX BOX add-ons on Steam edition? I also have heard that if you can get a clean install of the steam edition on a PC that never had, or looks like it never had, a FSX install at all, that it will look exactly like the FSX Box version to installers, thereby making it easier for installers to work. I've also heard horror stories of having to trudge through registries and weird file locations to get all the FSX remnants out. So IF I do go to the Steam edition, is there a good guide somewhere that will tell me how to completely obliterate FSX Box? My Payware list (if it helps) ASN FSPassengers (this is almost a no go, if this don't work, it will be hard to convince me to buy it) A2A C-182 (pretty sure this one will work) Carenado F33A Carenado Baron B58 PMDG Beech 1900 PMDG J41 IRIS T-6A Texan 2 Flight1 ATR-72 IRIS f-15 IRIS EAP FeelThere E145, e135and the e-jets (175 and 195) Level D 767 Any advice would be appreciated.
We are pleased to announce the opening of the FOCUS ON FREEWARE Forum. The purpose of this forum is to provide reviews of freeware add-ons of any type and any sim platform for the community's reading pleasure. Freeware authors contribute phenomenally to our hobby and we think it important that we give volunteer reviewers (Freeware Evangelists as we have called them) the chance to pick the best of the best and present an in-depth review of the aircraft, scenery, utility, AI Collection, etc. for their fellow community members. Included in the FOCUS ON FREEWARE will be interviews and other hints, help and tutorials by your fellow member volunteers. We have opened the forum and the first review has been posted. We encourage you to have a look and let us know what you think. You can find the FOCUS ON FREEWARE Forum here.
