- Q. Why are we in the middle of the sea?
- A. This usually means that you are in the main menu. And the sim will send the Lat/Long as basically 0/0 - FIXED PENDING EXTENSION REIVEW
- Q. Are there any limitations
- A. Twitch limits us to an amount of data we can send, so generally, we'll send around 80 planes that are within range of you.
- Q. Can I minimize the application?
- A. Yes, minimizing the application is perfectly fine.
- Q. Can I run it on another computer?
- A. No, it's expected that the application runs on the same computer as the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
- Q. What about Xbox?
- A. Currently it's impossible to connect to the sim running on the Xbox. It's just not supported by Microsoft/Xbox at the moment. This may change at some point
- Q. What about other languages?
- A. The extension itself is currently in English only. We'll be looking at translations in the future
- Q. I need help!
