  • Obsolete hardware drivers
  • Incorrect graphics settings

More information

Use the following procedures to troubleshoot performance and graphic issues in Flight:
  • Make sure that your system meets the minimum requirements for the game. For more information, go to Microsoft Flight on Xbox LIVE and then click Overview.
  • Download and install the latest drivers for your video and sound hardware and all available Windows updates and service packs.
  • If your system just meets the minimum requirements or you are encountering performance issues or instability, select the lowest graphics settings in the game:

    In Flight, select Graphics on the Options menu.
    • Make sure Full Screen and Vertical Sync are selected.
    • Make sure Overall Graphics Settings is set to Low.

    Note If your system performs correctly with these settings, you can gradually adjust these options to find a balance between performance and visual quality.
