I recently bought X-Plane 11 after playing the demo for a while, and I never had problems with the demo. But as soon as I bought the full game I haven't gotten anything but problems. I can't even begin to describe them all, but the one that's currently bothering me the most is the framerate. I used to play on medium - high settings in the demo, and when I got the full game as well. I didn't have a framerate counter then but I'm pretty sure it was above 40fps at all times. But after a couple of updates I just get around 10-15 fps. It's sad.
Also, in graphics settings, I see that the resolution is set to 1920 x 1080 60 Hz 32. Does that 32 mean that the game is running in 32bit? I checked for this on the FAQ, but it seems like the devs only support the outdated versions of their game, as there was no information about 32 and 64 bit in X-Plane 11 to be found anywhere. The only thing it said about the older games, 10 and 9, was that these come with both the 32 and 64 bit executable in the folder. And X-Plane 11 clearly doesn't, the only exe in the folder is X-Plane.exe and I'm pretty sure it's running in 32 bit on my 64 bit system.
I paid 60 dollars for this game/simulator, I would really like it to work properly, you might understand.
my system specs:
Intel Core i5-4460, 8GB DDR3 RAM, Msi Radeon R9 380 4GB. Game installed on my primary SSD.
I think you will find the 32 refers to the depth of colour bits, not the OS. You usually get the choice of 16bit or 32bit colour in programs that allow you select your own screen resolution that will override the default resolution. 16bit is 65000 colours displayable, where 32 bit is 16million colours (therefore uses more resources). More info on colour bits is here;
