Kinda, I can fly again but the game doesn’t run as well as it did in 8.1. There seems to be a bit of lag and not lag from the network, I think it is graphics/video lag or something that’s the problem.
And I discovered what was wrong in the first place, that was causing the mouse to constantly move in one direction. It had me banging my head against the wall when I learnt what was causing it and how easy it would been to fix.
Because it started to happen again with win 2012 r2. (I found out it was the Saitek X52 mouse control was bugging out so I increased the dead zone in the settings)
But it was the clean boot I tried that caused 8.1 to go into a BSOD I believe.
Now if I can just reinstall 8.1
Omnes Virgo triumphat imperator!
