Default FSX Steam Edition

Any FSX players out here? I recently bought it and am having some hiccups on Win 10. Game seems to crash a lot. Anything I should know about SE before I get into it further?

Also, does anybody have a hook up on some good freeware aircraft? Steam Edition seems kinda picky with what works and what doesn't.

Default

I have it not installed, in fact have not flown since a very long time now, and I do not know the Steam version, but I heard and read repeatedly that the Steam version and the legacy default version of the game do not behave identically.

However I can try to help if it is an issue that is not typical for the Steam edition.

If you can still give back the game (less than 2 hours played), I woudl do that and instead find a new DVD to buy.

Unfortunately I can't give it back.

I did get it on sale though for about 6$ so I don't have much in it. I'm just using it as a training aid at the moment for a test. I plan on building a PC later to be a dedicated sim rig but for now it works fine for my laptop.

As far as the issues I had, I was able to fix it. Turns out, for some reason, Steam didn't install all of the game files. And then it didn't detect the installation. So one clean, fresh re-installation and we're cooking now.

Later on, I'm probably going to get X-Plane and spend more money on a decent setup instead of my laptop and T.Flight right now.
