  1. Game controller for Car race and flight simulator - total noob


    Hello,
    I know nothing about video games, but want my 8 year old daughter to have the option to play some flight simulator and car race games. I saw there are a lot of free games from microsoft etc. So that should do. I also like to play with her, so may need 2 controllers. So far I just installed some free microsoft games and tried them out to play with the keyboard, which obviously is limiting. All our PCs have W10-64.

    It looks like there are quite a lot of USB game controllers. Some examples i came across is this $80 PXN Racing wheel or this $40 Gameon Racing wheel dn this, but as you know there are thousands. As i said, i have no experience with any fo that. I don't mind to spend more $, but don't want to overspend given the occasional use of cheaper games ny an 8 year old. if we play a lot, i don't mind upgrading in some years. Some questions:


    • What race wheel features do occasional players really need for typical features? I realize there are several options in feedback etc. but what is really needed?
    • Can a PC game typically work with 2 race wheels?
    • What joystick features are needed for flight simulators?
    • What brands are good ones? I know Logitech has a lot of controllers, but I realize much PC hardware is produced in the same factory and then just re-labelled.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    :)

  2. Microsoft Flight Simulator issue after Windows 10 Upgrade

    Hi Rahul,



    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.



    I suggest you to completely uninstall Microsoft Flight Simulator and check.

    Refer the steps below to uninstall.

    • Press “Windows key + X”, select Control panel.
    • Open programs and features.
    • In the list of installed programs, select Microsoft Flight Simulator, and then click
      Remove.


    Note: If you have earlier versions of Flight Simulator in the list of installed programs, you will have to remove them in addition to Flight Simulator.



    Reinstall the Flight Simulator.



    Please reply to us if the issue still persist.

  3. Grand Prix Legends racing car simulation

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft community.

    As you have stated that the Grand Prix Legend racing car simulation has stopped working.

    I would like to ask few question about your query:


    • Does this issue only occur to this game?

    • Have you made any changes on your computer prior to the issue?

    I would like to suggest few troubleshooting steps:

    Run the game after performing Clean Boot.

    Putting your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    Note: Refer "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting.

    Additional Information:
    Install any pending Windows updates on the pc to check if that helps. Updates are additions to software that can help prevent or fix problems, improve how your computer works, or enhance your computing experience.

    Please get back to us if the issue doesn’t resolved.
