Laggy FlightGear and problems

- What OS?
Windows 8.1 Pro
- Flightgear Version
3.2
- Graphics Card?
Intel Graphics 4600 (this worked before note!)

Now before, when I was running Manjaro with 3.0 it was perfect. No lag, good fps. but after going to windows and getting 3.2, all of that changed.

I guess Manjaro is a Linux distribution? Could it be different graphics drivers, or some graphics settings? Does OpenGL and OpenGL shaders (in essence GLSL) work in other software?

Hmm, they seem to be the same graphics drivers and settings (stock settings).
