New day, new motivation: once again, players put their patience to the test and start downloading the Microsoft flight simulator, which some fans have already given the title “Installation Simulator” after the installation problems and freezes. The Steam reviews are balanced, and buyers often complain about a refund on Valve's platform that doesn't work. To put it simply: Download time is game time – and that again has something to do with Microsoft.

Keep calm, don't get upset, just wait - it's release day. The positive Steam reviews looked like this or similar yesterday, including those who did not make it into the game, but still gave the Microsoft flight simulator good grades because they hope for a good game - and perhaps have put a decent amount of money into it .

Microsoft flight simulator: waiting for start

The Flight Simulator 2020 is not a bargain, especially in its deluxe versions. Just exchange? At least on Steam, this is not easy, because once you have started the game, you can no longer initiate your refund. The reason is relatively simple: The Microsoft flight simulator runs via an external launcher and that is exactly what Steam already counts as a game start. Many fans are angry: "It's a beta at full price" or a "hyped disaster", they say.

With respect to the hanging installations at Microsoft flight simulator and the freezing loading bar only rarely improves. Some players report that they have made it into the game in the meantime, others have downloaded the client for many hours, only to then find that the download suddenly stalls, sometimes hangs up and does not start again with the remaining three gigabytes starts. Waiting can help, but still not in all cases.

Windows 10 updates seem to cause problems for some players, for example KB4565351 for Windows 10 version 1909 and KB4566782 for Windows 10 version 2004, which cause error codes. There is no solution so far, but deactivating the automatic Windows updates and manual installation is mentioned by tech sites. To uninstall updates you have to go to the "update history" (type in the search for press the Win key), click on uninstall updates and find the relevant update and click on "uninstall". In other cases, there are even blue screens or sound problems, and there are no solutions for this either.

Of course, these are primarily purely technical problems. In terms of play or "simulation technology", the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 will ultimately deliver what it promises: a grandiose simulation experience that is currently unique in this form. Those who have already been able to play rave about the new offshoot - even beginners who have never put their hands on the aircraft controls are mostly enthusiastic. What stands out: Many players recommend. acquire appropriate control options in order to be able to really enjoy the Microsoft flight simulator. Control via gamepad is considered a good alternative, if you use a keyboard and mouse you can control the plane, but fans do not recommend it.

You can use the time of the installation or the waiting for a working installation to buy a cool flight controller.
