I know this is not a question relating to MF but maybe someone might have an answer as the FSX forums did not provide clear solutions.

I have FSX install on my i5 K2500 pc, 8gig mem, SSD. Video card is a Radeon.

FSX is freezing in mid flight for up to 5 minutes then presume. This happens about 3 times during flight. Every time FSC freeze, MF disconnect and reconnect when FSX comes out of freezing. This I understand as FSX does not respond to the MF connection.

The only 3rd party programmes installed are MF, FSUIPC (registered) and GSX (registered)

Is your FSX "tweaked" ???

The Base FSX Version is technical no longer compatible to modern Computers. We talk about Software from the early 2000's . Those Software is not be able to see multiple Processor Cores and also can normaly not Handle RAM greater then 4 GB.

There exist a lot of Stuff and premande Programmes that solve some of this problems. Called "tweak"
Also there are guides to setup windows a little better ( e.g. compatibility mode) .

Let me say.... FSX is simply a Sim that should be rest in peace. It´s time is over ! Only running well if you also have a computer of that periode of time.
OR When you tweak it correctly !

For sure. You not need to invest a lot of money and a new computer for FS2020. But why not tryout a trial Version of P3D ???
Thats still on the FSX Level.... But much more straight forward from technical side.
Good Luck !

I looked at P3D, it has a monthly fee, so in the long run more expensive. GSX also is not totally compatible with P3D.
