I have a quick question. My FS 2004 is running very well at full settings, but when I'm loading a flight my screen is flickering for about 2 seconds and comes back to normal. I was wondering if it is normal or if I have some kind of bugs.
No that isn't a bug! It could be a number of things:
1. Make sure you have the latest drivers for your Video card.
2. It could be that you are running anti-aliasing from the video card settings and not FS. Try setting your AA to application (from your video card) and enable AA from wthin FS2004.
3. If the above doesn't work, try reducing the screen resolution. Some monitors can handle res upto 1024by800 but some older monitors go a bit distorted.
4. If none of the above works - try another monitor (if you have one). Chances are it's on it's last legs.
