Microsoft Flight Simulator X
Free flight, missions, settings etc. I see no visual differences only FPS are a little lower due to the extra conversion step.
What does not
Flight lessons (simply could not start for some, probably very simple, reason) Joystick has one or two buttons not correctly recognized.
What was not tested
Anything network related. Installation as I didn't have enough space. I simply mounted my Vista partition and run that. See installation details below. I had to rename the modules folder for FSX to start. I've a huge lot of addons so some module didn't work and blocked the startup.
Installation is the same as the demo. Use winetricks to install vcrun2005, d3dx9 and corefonts. Download/install msxml4 sp2 For the first run, run it in a virtual desktop, so you will be able to see the EULA and click accept. If you run it in non-virtual desktop, and it gets stuck on the splash screen, press Enter, because there is a hidden warning message. The game works amazingly well, but sometimes free flight screen is black until hovering over with the mouse.
