OK, this may sound like a noobie question, but it's something I've never bothered finding out about!
When I'm flying I often want to flick into MSN Messenger, change my music or something else outside of FS. Flight Sim will automatically go into pause mode when I do this. How can I get FS to carry on in the background without pausing?
Change your Settings:
Setting / General
uncheck the little box in front of Pause on task switch
That should do it.
Blinding, cheers! Thought it would be something stupid like that!
Now you can do a long haul while sitting back and having a beer!
That's the spirit
Nice post, thanks for the method.
