I have used the DVD version of FS 2 for years and not had one problem. However several days ago I checked for updates whilst running the flight sim, something I always do, and it came up with an error message 1002 internet connection. Added to this I then discovered flying in the sim also had some strange problems. Taking off and or landing from an airfield without the RW overlay the locked FPS at 60 works fine as normal. However landing and taking off from an airfield with the RW overlay FPS is killed to around 5 FPS. Flying between airfields FPS at 60 and everything works OK.
This is what I have done so far:
1. Updated Nvidia graphics driver, no change.
2. Scanned PC for virus and or malware, clean, no change.
3. Download and reinstall IPACS update FS 2 Version: 2.04.09.25, no change.
This has me completely baffled.
Any help and or pointers will be greatly appreciated.
Thanking you in advance.
Kindest regards, Michael.
