Screen Corruption When Aircraft Crashes

The information in this article applies to:
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator for MS-DOS 5.0
This article was previously published under Q110317


After an aircraft crashes you may see some screen corruption in the upper-left corner of the screen as the situation resets itself.


This does not occur when flying the Cessna Skyline RGR R182. In VGA or SVGA resolution, the corruption appears as a patch of brown and white pixels. In EGA resolution it is recognizable as a gauge of some kind; however, it does not correspond to any actual gauge in any aircraft.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Flight Simulator for MS-DOS, version 5.0.
