Loading Fsx

#1 Post by David Millar » Tue Oct 10, 2017 1:01 pm

running fsx when loading now it takes all of three minutes Would this be normal ie different addons etc and related software like fsnavigator/Accu Map and so on Is there any way to speed up the process of loading.

The more addons you put it, the longer it will take to load. It's a simple matter of data I'm afraid. A computer can only load data at a specific speed.

There are ways to improve that speed though. Things like a Solid State Drive (SSD) instead of a Hard Disk Drive (HDD) will make loading faster.
(My PC used to take 5-10 minutes to boot up on an HDD, now takes 20-30 seconds on a SSD)

For reference, even on a SSD, my P3D setup takes 2-3 minutes to load.
