Known Issues

Graphical issues

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: The game still has a lot of graphical issues in hardware mode. The aircraft, the hangar and the in-mission ground surface suffer from the most noticeable glitches. Black lines on screen and textures are incorrect.
  • Workaround: Software Mode has no graphical glitches but runs slow on most CPUs and has slow view modes.

Slow View Modes

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: In Software Mode, both third person and cockpit views make the game go unplayably slow and lag the audio.
  • Workaround: Use Virtual Cockpit mode or play in Hardware Mode.
