I have just purchased and downloaded x plane 11 on disc as steam edition had the same following problem. When I start the game takes a very long time to load (about 3 hours) when it does load the starting Cessna is there but when I press main menu and start a new flight all the icons are question marks. When commencing from this it doesn’t load. Please help with this

Thanks in advance

My system does meet the requirements but only has 7.89 Gb of RAM out of the installed 8. Will this have an effect. If so how do I get more RAM thanks

If anyone else has had I similar problem I have managed to fix the game. Through bios switch graphics card from auto to your graphics card (mine was HD intel) this gives an instant fix smiley

Hi Harry,

I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer.

One issue with the installation process is to ensure your antivirus software is turned off or deactivated.

The 8GB or RAM you currently have is the minimum requirement.  Adding additional RAM will certainly assist with operating speed as X-Plane relies on RAM speed and capacity, processor speed and graphics card speed.  You need to talk to your local computer shop for increased RAM capacity.  I would suggest a minimum increase to 16 Gb.  In doing so however, you need to ensure the RAM chips are exactly the same brand and speed as you will most likely get compatibility issues.  Go for at least a mid range chip speed.  If your motherboard can utilize DDR4  RAM then go for this rather than DDR3 RAM as this type has a slower upper speed level and has been superseded.

Generally the processor has the ability to be overclocked as the load is increased as well.  Overclocking the graphics card also assists when the load increases.

Hope this helps and you are able get a quick resolution to the boot-up speed.

Hi Harry,

Not able to help any further.  Beyond my X-Plane 11 knowledge base.

Hope you find the answer
