Bug - App crashes when too many way points are pasted into “search” tab (6)

Solution: Currently, there is no accurate solution to this issue. If this happens, try and reduce the amount of way points inserted.

Bug - Free cam jumps around when getting too close to the plane (7)

Solution: Currently, there is no accurate solution to this issue. This issue is due to lag on Live servers. The developers have stated a fix for this issue is in the works.

Bug - Long haul flights crash on old devices (8)

Solution: When cruising, reduce graphics to the lowest possible settings. Set the airplane count to “Low”, and turn the brightness all the way down. Turning time to night, turning anti anazlying off, and restarting your device before a flight is also a good way to prevent crashing. Turning on Low Power Mode (Via Infinite Flight settings) is also recommenced. Be sure you have cleared your device RAM before doing a long haul flight. After a crash, please restart your device and repeat the steps above

Clearing your RAM: iOS | Android

Bug - Servers randomly go down (Includes weather, API services) (9)

Solution: Currently, there is no accurate solution to this issue. Be sure you keep a good connection during the duration of the flight.

I’ve had this happen to me once on iOS. Restarted the application and it worked fine.

I have not experienced this, but numerous people on the IFFG (Infinite Flight Fan Group on Facebook) are starting to report that they are picking up unknown violations after their flight which did not show up during the flight.

Impossible. They must be over speeding during cruise.

Thank you for this summary. Do we know why the named features (terrain warning/purchasing on www.infinite-flight.com ) have been removed? I had noticed about the terrain warning but I’ve noticing only today about the login/purchasing on the IF page. Perhaps it had been said and I missed it…!?
Personally I’m regretting this change for both, as the terrain warning was actually a recent feature which helped a lot in areas with mountains and purchasing a live subscription was muh cheaper as purchasing on iOS where a provision is included!
Thanks in advance.

The terrain warning and landing aid were removed due to performance issues, and are expected to make a return soon.

I personally don’t know why the website is no longer an option to purchase a subscription, and I don’t want to speculate. @schyllberg Any answer?

A good thing personally though I think is that a lot of people’s devices can’t support global anymore, so let’s say if someone bought the sub first without knowing that then his money got wasted.

Well I don’t think that’s a valuable reason, in my opinion, as FDS can also refund in that case. I thought initially that the homepage would be updated as well, perhaps it is the case? Do we have a confirmation about not being available anymore?

The weird engine sound is not just on the a320. I experienced it today on the SR22.
