Aproximatley how many fps does it take untill the jerky approaches are smoothed out? I am getting about 8 or 9 on my approach and find it difficult to adjust elevator trim for a smooth approach. What other advantages would one find if the fps were increased to say about 30plus?
If you get to something above 15-19 fps the craft should be smooth, higher is very cool.
It takes a good card and the right driver. One of the late model ATI (9700) and up would be great.
The other advantages, if your machine is powerful and you have at least 512mb ram, you could max out all of the visual properties.
It's a very graphic intensive Sim.
So what would you recommend for my configuration?
Athlon XP3000+, 1024 MB Ram and Ati Radeon 9600 Pro.
If you don't have the latest video driver clean out your old one and load the latest.
That's a nice machine, better than mine, max out all the visuals in settings.
I am using the Nvidia 128mb and 512DDR memory and everything at max level (except aircraft shadow) and FS9 look cool with 21fps average
how do you find out your FPS?
Ghost 22 , use shift key+Z key . Press once for cordinates, press second time for frame rates, press third time for all info, press fourth to return to normal.
