New beta branch available on Steam!

We've released a new beta branch for FSX:SE that will help us gain valuable new telemetry data that will help us in the development of the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. If you are interested in assisting us with this process, please follow the link below, select the branch labeled fsx-beta – External Beta and select “yes” when asked if you allow telemetry. Remember that you are always able to opt out of the beta branch and return to the normal branch at any time.

Setting up the Steam Client for FSX Beta

To join the FSX beta follow these simple steps:

1. Right Click on the FSX: Steam Edition in your Steam Library.
2. Select Properties.
3. Select BETA Tab.

4. Choose fsx-beta External Beta branch. You DO NOT NEED a code.
5. Restart your Steam Client.

To reverse the changes and go to live build once again, just select branch - NONE and restart your steam client.
Bug Fixes

Included in this update are also a number of fixes, which you can find below:



•   Resolved issue in N1 values where some settings were set to zero
•   Fixed issue where fuel flow not saved and set to 0 when started in the air

Agent radar

•   Resolved in flight issue which resulted in intermittent crashes when using navigation way-points


•   Impression fixes when converting knots to meters per second


•   Small fixes to oil pressure table
•   C172 oil pressure changed to start with a valid value

Live Weather

•   Reintegrated Live Weather
•   When a weather station METAR line reading is failing the data will now be extrapolated from the weighted mean of the closest available METAR sources, instead of resetting to default weather
