Flight Sim X stutters too much

Guest Guest

I am so fed up that Microsoft have the nerve too release one of the worst optimised software ever. FSX is suppose to be an improvement over 2004, but this just is'nt the case. The 2004 version worked fine, but FSX is like watching a slide show. If I was wanted a slide show I would have bought a selection of plane photos. Microsoft should not have released terrible software and they should feel guilty.

Yup it is all their fault and nothing to do with your system.

How DARE they upgrade their software to use more modern hardware.

I dont know why but I dont have any problems with my FSX. So I dont think it's Microsoft's fault that your systems aren't working. The specs required are usually the one you need to run the game at it's minimum settings. If you want to max you game settings, expect your PC to work harder to keep up. So if you barely meet the games specs, obviously the game wont run at it's best when you raise the graphics. Like I said, I dont have any problems running my game becaue I set my game so it doesn't over-work my PC. So really the complaining should to your wallet to get yourself a better maching to play the game. Also dont multitask while playing, would improve your experience.

Your specs are actually pretty bad for running FSX on.

I'd say you need at least a gig of RAM before even attempting to play FSX.

Better start saving your pocket money matey. Wink

Your system meets the minimum specs. The fault is entirely yours for not understanding that optimum performance will not be achieved using what by today's standards is crappy hardware.

This MS is to blame because my computer is garbage, posting is an utter waste of time.

It runs like absolute crappola on my computer also. I can hardly run it in the lowest resolutions and I am running the following:

- Dual core Athlon 4200+
- Geforce 7900 GTX
- 2 Gig DDR2 ram
- 7200 rpm SATA drive

Flight Sim X is rubbish, dont get it unless your computer was brought back in time from the year 2010.

Wrong. Exclamation You have probably a bad organized system or something goes wrong.
My PC is close or in a lower level than yours and i run FSX decently.

Look, I am running it on a Dell Dimension 3000 with a P4 2.8 GHz, 512 MB RAM (128 MB shared with Intel onboard GFX).

True, I have turned the autogen and traffic off, but if you are having major trouble running it on your machine, it is seriously screwed up. There are people here with equal or lesser machines doing quite well with FSX.

The category of your post is, "I don't know how to set things up properly, so I'll blame the software". Rolling Eyes

I don't get it??? Question

I'm running a lesser system and not having any trouble with FSX.
Granted I have autogen set to zero, road vehicles set to zero and water effects set low. The rest I have set to medium to medium high and Im getting 18 to 25 fps.
I've added some cfg file tweaks that seemed to help and am happy.

FS9 in no longer on my system. Wink

Here be my question why is everyone arguing when Microsoft has already fessed up and said they screwed up parts of the game. They are going to release two patches in 2007. My computer is just as good as any other one out there and the game runs smooth but there is alot missing talking about patches of ground look like messed up water and some airports don't show up in multiplayer. Things like this piss me off but if your patient patches will come and games will get better. Remeber after the fs9 patch the game did get better. Love Peace and chicken grease my friends. Idea
