Flight News Updates Title Update for Flight Now Available

We're pleased to announce that the first title update for Flight is now available. You will be prompted to install the update the next time you launch Flight and log into LIVE.  Once the update is downloaded in-game, simply close Flight and then the update will patch the game once it has closed. Here is a list of changes and bug fixes we have implemented in this update:

XP Grinder Achievement Fixed

  • All users who have reached the 500,000 XP required will be awarded this achievement upon next log-in after update.
  • Additional achievements now awarding properly if user is Level 20 rather than upon the following log-in.

Control and Gameplay Updates

  • Decreased the amount of trim with each button press on controllers and joysticks; it should be much easier to fine tune glide slope and flight path.
  • Improved the ability to make small adjustments in flight with joystick and Xbox Controllers through non-linear mapping.
  • Multiplayer host changing weather will no longer affect other users in missions that have specific weather settings.
  • Crashing the aircraft while in the cinematic camera no longer causes random effects.

Stability Fixes

  • Crash when using ALT+TAB during sign-in.
  • Crash when signing in during intro video.
  • Game became unresponsive if network connectivity lost.
  • Crash when changing GFWL presence info. 

UI Fixes

  • P-51 name now shows properly in German.
  • Aircraft and Region description text now show in the installed language of the game regardless of LIVE profile language settings.
  • Name of different aircraft variations now displays properly.
  • In-game DLC offer information downloads and appears much faster.
  • Added appropriate ratings for CERO and GRB.

Graphics and Settings

  • Game will now better adjust and set the default graphic settings on high-end PCs.
  • Users can now override settings in Flight.cfg by setting Custom=1 under section [Configuration].

When us Brits are finally remembered perhaps we can have a Spitfire or similar instead of a Japanese Zero. Don't forget we were fighting Germany, Italy and Japan before the USA entered the second world war officially.

Not really, still to quickly and sensitive. Can`t see any difference to before update.

RF HEIMDALL: Did you reset your controls when the option came up?  It could be that the new trim doesn't take into effect until the controls are reset.

Wohoo for patch support :)

One thing i'd like to suggest MS Flight team, is faster Texture streaming.  On my setup it seems to take a long time to stream in textures.  But my graphics card is a Radeon 5770 which runs the game like butter with default High settings.

And of course DX11.  MS, DirectX 11 is YOUR OWN PRODUCT.  Please support it with the games you release.  Cheers though!

April 2, 2012 12:06 PM

@stonelance: Yes i did.

I remapped Trim to my joystick buttons. Every time i hit the button it moves the trim 2°-4°, very rare 1° steps.

In real life you are able to trim "analog". Would be nice to trim in 0.1° Steps instead of this big steps.

Thanks MS.  You can see how a relatively minor patch gets the customers happy and enthusiastic about Flight again.  It shows some commitment from MS and offers reassurance that you will continue to grow this product.  Please keep it up.  Perhaps it's time for a patented MS leak about the release date for Alaska?

Kinaye
April 2, 2012 2:07 PM

Unfortunately this update reset my daily aerocache count back to ZERO.  The game thinks that I've never attempted an aerocache, therefore it dumps me back into the tutorial.  All of my awards and achievements are preserved (thanks for that), however I've lost 16 or 17 daily aerocaches.

Also, there are other aerocache bugs: In the basic game, you cannot get to some without a helicopter or SR-71 Blackbird.  I have gained a few by crashing into them, but that's not much towards a reward for skill now is it?  Aerocaches of this difficulty should not be available until the specific type of aircraft makes it permissible.

Other than that, it is an enjoyable game and I look forward to new DLC, especially Alaska!

Da ich kein Englisch kann schreibe ich auf Deusch. Vielleicht versteht mich ja jemand und hat einen Tipp.

Das Update geht bei mir nicht. Er lädt was runter, dann soll ich das Spiel beenden um mit der Aktualisierung fortzufahren.

Ok das mache ich, aber dann tut sich nichts. Wenn ich das Spiel nach einiger Zeit wieder starte, will er das Update wieder runter laden. So geht es immer weiter.

Das Update wird nicht installiert. Was tun?

Das Problem ich kann Games for Windows Live nicht starten, ich bekomme nun keine Verbindung mehr.

Hat einer eine Idee was ich machen kann um wieder Online zu kommen?

So when do you plan to add some life to the game... Feels like you are the only thing living in the time after humans. Seriously, there is no other life on the planet. Could use traffic and such too air and vehicular. These elements were in FSX why not here. And as someone mentioned the rest of the world would be nioce...I suppose those will be released as DLC you have to pay for.

You should try out multiplayer - PLENTY of life

Never did that with FSX or previous as Multiplayer really stunk for those.

Andy721874
April 2, 2012 10:12 PM

Crashing the aircraft while in the cinematic camera no longer causes random effects?

Well there goes that.  Can't press M and then M again and begin flying in the air.  You have to either press M and pick a different spot for your plane to fly.  Also I think the nose up and down trim is a bit slow.

MoistSquishe
April 2, 2012 10:18 PM

The pitch control is still to sensitive, I think it needs to be tweeted a little more to be more realistic.  One good outcome the MS TEAM are at least reading the posts.  If everyone keeps  posting good ideas maybe we can turn this game into a great simulator, it has great potential I'am not giving up yet.

Seems to me that everyone wants to try something new and expect it to be perfect when they were so used to X-plane and FSX.  If you don't like it play the 10 other flight simulators you have installed on your Hard Drive.  Christ on his throne, people these days.

They'll eventually get it.  Also Flight will eventually finish.

... and more content like new air crafts and places to fly are always welcome :)

- built-in 3d SideBySide option supports passive 3d monitors PLEASE!!!!

- Track IR!!!

- MORE MISSIONS - They are the hart of that sim!!!

- EUROPE MAP (especially Poland :)

- AI traffic (that sim looks like i am the only human on the planet) and dont link another        multiplayer youtube movie, just add traffic please,

- its not ok to price your product in eastern europe like we were earning same money as you are!

- Keep up doing great work :)

April 3, 2012 1:43 PM

I would like to see an Economy feature added. With it instead of earning rank and awards i would earn simulated money to purchase fuel, aircraft, and scenery. Would also like to see an Airline feature, where i would have my own company and budget for everything like, fuel, purchasing new aircraft, and increasing my fleet.

I know you want to make money on this sim and see you have tried to model it after iRacing in the way you wish for us to purchase content but in the end it would cost most of us over $1000 if you were to continue the trend you have started with $19 for each addon state. The aircraft would cost even more, this is beyond what the average simmer is going to pay.

If you were to impliment such a policy as i have mentioned it would get the gamers into the sim but not leave them broke and upset at Microsoft for pirating our hard earned money away. In this way you could reward us for our devotion to the game and at times ask us to invest real money to purchase content, but not the kind of money that this initial release has asked for. I personally think the sim looks great, it doesnt fly perfect yet but its getting there.

In conclusion, keep up the hard work, its getting there. Please take a harder look at your demographic, most of us dont have the kind of money you are expecting to get from this sim, most in part thanks to our current administration and their antics we all find ourselves having less to bring home. If you could take a step back and reward the customer in the game instead of asking for more than we can give you will find a renewed confidence and loyalty to your products.

ANGRY ABOUT MY MONEY !!!

I post here so everybody can see.

I have played the game since day 1, even tried to apply to the beta. Very quick, I went for the Adventure pack and to the Maule, giving M$ my 35 euros.

I said in this blog before that I thought a starter pack bundle would have been nice, with a fair price.

Now that I have spend my money, M$ release the game through Steam, with a nice bundle pack (P-51, adventure pack and the Maule) for less than 30 euros !!! WTH ???

And since the aerocache system seems down all over the game, and many of my friends have lost their stats, and that the game has frozen on me twice today... I AM VERY UPSET BY THIS !!!!

@InboundFour953 it happened to me, too. but have you noticed maybe? pilot xp point are suitable for all caught (including false unchecked) aerocaches.

Waialae Falls, Waipoo Falls, Banyan, Diamond, Hawaii Fortress base, Mohihi Falls, Awini Falls, Big Surf,...

April 4, 2012 3:14 AM

The update installed without problem. I went in and set up toe brakes, went for the aerocache of the day (Mauna Loa Caldera), got it, landed, and the toe brakes worked, which was a first. Great.

Quit the game, then started it up again. My toe brake settings were no longer there, and the game had forgotten I'd gotten the aerocache. Reset the toe brakes, got the cache again, quit the game, retstarted - same thing, no toe brakes, no cache.

The toe brakes never worked before, but I've never had this problem where the aerocache wasn't retained. That needs to be fixed, pronto. I'm not going to bother going for awards and such until I know I won't lose them when I quit.

Hi thgere,

Also desperate for some European scenery such as the Swiss Alps. the Eiffel Tower or the Thames.

Needless to say, we will get no feedback so don't hold your breath.

Greetings -

The Aerocache Bug that I reported on April 2nd still exists, though in a different form:  It does not update.  To reproduce:

1. Log in... nav to the Aerocache Challenge and execute the search and capture.  Note the number collected.

2. Wait a day and try again:  The number of Aerocaches collected remains the same; unchanged.

3. Days have gone by and the count is the same; unchanging, no credit awarded.  

4. Today I captured another aerocache, and in the effort to record the bug, I logged out and then logged back in to see if my Pilot Profile retained the count (it didn't) however now I am dumped back to the beginning tutorial video and no longer have access to my achievements.  (I tried this twice and got the same result).  At this point I consider the application is not working properly and shall stop my gaming.  

I'm a full-on SDE, so tell me what you need and I'll forward the data from my end.

Thanks, K

I don't see where the update really fixed anything.  I do, however, see how it has created quite a few problems.  For instance, I have accumulated over 600,000 XP, but I still don't have the "XP Grinder" acheivement -- so that "fix" simply didn't work.  

Also, since the so-called "update", whenever I log out of the game, all Aerocaches that I've found during that session aren't saved.  I should have well over 50 Aerocaches accumulated, but everytime I log back in to the game, it continues to only show 44.....For instance, I've collected the "Bowfin" Aerocache 3 times now, but each time I log out, then log back in, it shows it as uncollected.  I'm also losing all credit for finding each "Aerocache Of The Day".  That's pretty annoying.

I'm also experiencing a graphics problem when flying on the East Side of the Big Island.  Periodically, groves of trees appear floating in the air.  Other times, land graphics appear in the ocean.  When this happens, the video becomes very jerky and almost impossible to control the aircraft.  I've noticed that if I change my heading, that seems to make the problem go away......but if I turn back to my original heading, the problem persists.  Like I said, this is only on the East Side of the Big Island and this has been occuring since before the recent "update".  I have dual, ATI Radeon HD 5670 video cards with 1024 MB Ram and all current driver updates.

Please fix these issues as SOON as possible.

Anyone else have the Stearman Master Landing achievement not unlock on their profile? Showed it as unlocked when you press home in game but won't update to my actual xbox profile/website. If anyones had it, have you fixed it or do i have to wait for another of these updates :/

Microsoft: Please explaain to me why it is so dificult to get the toe brakes to work. They work in EVERY other gsme I have . Not just Flying but multiple Driving simulations. You already have a feature to soften the brakes so I do not see that as being a problem.  It makes flying those challenges with the taildragers a real pain and not so real. Especially in crosswind situations. I just don't get it. Thanks for listening.

Please consider to integrate more plane types, such as a Learjet or rotorcraft (e.g. Jetranger, Sea King) in coming DLC. That would be a plus to MS Flight!
