    Stability

    • Several crashes have been fixed across the title
    • Applying the default profile for the Mouse will no longer crash the title when an custom profile was loaded on PC
    • Fixed crash in autosave in bushtrip missions when the user has a non-ASCII name
    • The title can now be launched in Safe mode 4 via a pop-up to deactivate all Community and Marketplace content on PC only. The option will be available after a crash as long as Devmode is not enabled.
    • Fixed some scenarios where mandatory content was not downloaded or installed properly on PC if it had been deleted via the content manager (“You are missing packages that are essential to run Microsoft Flight Simulator. Please update the application and try again.”)
