  1. In an email sent to a variety of flight simming sites today, Microsoft announced that Customer Support for FSX has expired. In the announcement, Jennifer Paige, Community Manager for Microsoft Studios said; "Customer Support for FSX has expired here at Microsoft. What does this mean? We will no longer be answering support emails or hosting various updates and download files for the FSX product. Why has it ended? It simply ran its course, all products will hit a support expiration at some point, FSX has hit that date." Microsoft will announce the closure of support in the XBOX forums and will provide links to the various community sites for fellow flight sim enthusiasts. AVSIM will be one of those sites. You can join our forum discussion here.
  2. Microsoft today released the P-40 single engine world war two fighter for Flight today. The P-40 as released does not include a cockpit. AVSIM Member Kabronicus describes the P-40; "Famous for its "shark mouth" paint jobs, the P-40 was one of the most popular Allied fighter planes in WWII. This classic aircraft's agility makes it ideal for tests of maneuverability such as collecting Aerocaches. The version in Microsoft Flight is the P-40B, with a 1000 HP in-line V-12 engine and a top speed of over 300 knots." You can read more about it in the forum topic started by Kabronicus here.
  3. Kotaku, a Game focused web site, is tonight reporting that the Microsoft Aces Studios title "Flight" has had development stopped. In the article written by Jason Schreier, the site reports that "Microsoft has informed Kotaku that they have not shut down the studio but it has ended development on flight simulator Microsoft Flight and Project Columbia, a Kinect interactive TV project ." In an unattributed quote, Kotaku reports; "Microsoft Studios is always evaluating its portfolio of products to determine what is best for gamers, families and the company, and this decision was the result of the natural ebb and flow of our portfolio management. Many factors were considered in the difficult decision to stop development on "Microsoft Flight" and "Project Columbia," but we feel it will help us better align with our long-term goals and development plans. For "Microsoft Flight," we will continue to support the community that has embraced the title and the game will still be available to download for free at http://www.microsoft.com/games/flight/." You can read the entire artilce here: http://kotaku.com/5929141/microsoft-shuts-down-vancouver+based-studio Note that AVSIM has requested confirmation of this news directly from Microsoft. We will update this article to reflect any communication we receive. You can join the forum conversation here.
  4. MS today released some teaser images of their soon to be released scenery add-on for MS FLIGHT. FLIGHT of course is their latest product in the flight simulation genre'. You can view more of the images here. You can participate in the AVSIM Forum discussion here.
  5. Hi There! I'm new here, but was advised by a fellow Flight pilot, HB1PC3, to join this website to ask for much needed help. As I am also posting to msFLIGHTS.net & FSDeveloper.com to ask for the same advice, I have posted all the problematic information to a page within my own website, at: http://www.smartartsplus.co.uk/flightadvice.htm in the hope that someone out there in the virtual Flight skies can help me relaunch my game. Thanking you in anticipation of a solution! Paul J. Hopkins (aka Lordnum)

  7. Jennifer Paige, Community Manager for Microsoft Studios today provided us an announcement regarding MS FLIGHT. Here's what Jennifer provided us: "New Microsoft Flight Update Now Available. Here are the changes included in this latest update: We made a few changes to help address an issue that was causing some players to crash when starting the game. We addressed an issue that was causing a CRC validation error for some players. We also made some adjustments to help improve Windows 8 compatibility. A special thank you to all the players who participated in the beta test of this build! Your efforts are appreciated."
  8. Joshua Howard was kind enough to provide answers to AVSIM's follow-up questions following the announced stopping of development on Flight. Here is a "mini-review" of sorts. AVSIM: We have a number of questions we would love to ask, but the predominant one is regarding external development. Are you considering allowing third parties continuing development of FLIGHT? Would you provide the SDK's under license to another or others? Joshua: There is no facility to allow 3rd parties to independently develop content for Microsoft Flight. Though we had hoped to offer this capability in the future, as the product stands today it’s not possible. AVSIM: Do you foresee then a point in time in the not too distant future, where the work on Flight could form the basis of FSX11? Or, is there some other possible road that MS ACES might move down to continue the genre’? Joshua: Those are difficult questions, because on one hand I can’t discuss unannounced product, and on the other hand the company never wants to say never. It should be clear that there is no current effort to continue with a Flight type product. The team itself is dispersing into other projects. But, who knows what the future might bring? I wouldn’t want anyone to hold out any false hopes, but it also wouldn’t surprise me if after some period of time the company reconsidered. We are constantly evaluating our portfolio and making changes – right now Flight doesn’t fit, but it might again in the future. It’s an unsatisfactory answer, but it’s the best I’ve got for you. AVSIM: Thank you Joshua. We do appreciate your candor with us.
  9. In response to an AVSIM inquiry regarding the status of FLIGHT after last night's reporting by various gamer sites, Joshua Howard, Team Lead at the Game Studios provided AVSIM a statement which does confirm that development of the FLIGHT product has ceased. Here it is in part; "It’s important to be precise about what actually happened. Microsoft decided to end active development of Microsoft Flight, but the product itself will continue to stay live and continue to be actively managed as a community. New users can still download it, and existing users can still play it, with full access to whatever content they have purchased. It’s always a difficult decision to end active development like this, especially with such a dedicated and committed team. But ultimately this was the right decision for Microsoft.". We hope to be asking Mr. Howard some follow-on questions, which we know the community is anxious to hear the answers to. We'll report on those shortly.
