Selected Test Results

What works

  • Setup (with Win9x api)
  • Starting various predefined flights and actually flying all airplanes
  • Using a mouse instead of a joystick 
  • Changing views, scenery density, weather ...
  • The 3D-landscape-scenery around the (Lake) Chelan Airport
  • What does not

  • Certain harsh / quick flight maneuvers like sudden steep dives cause the simulator to randomly crash.
  • Getting close to animated scenery like the stuff e.g. at the western coast of Brooklyn, NYC, seems to cause the simulation to crash.
  • Start a flight at night seems to cause a high rate of random crashes. Load a daytime flight and change the time later. 
  • Random crashes at start-up of the program. Be patient and just try again ... once a flight is loaded and the airplane is on a runway, the program becomes more stable.
  • Workarounds

    Additional Comments

    I am glad to have this piece of software back on my computer. Despite all the mentioned issues, it brings back the feeling I had when I first flew with this sim quite a long time ago :-)
