fs9 vs. fs2k2

crosscheck9 Guest

hi, i just wanted to ask, how much memory would you gain with using fs2k2, vs. fs9. i dont have fs2k2, but fs9 is really killing my computer. all these downloads really add up.

crosscheck9,

Are you asking how much space does it take up on the harddrive? I assume that's what you mean since you mention downloads "adding up"-- anyhow, on my PC, FS2002 occupies 1.72 Gb on the harddrive, and FS09 occupies 2.76 Gb, a net savings of 1.02 Gb (1,020 Mb, if you prefer) on the drive if I had only installed FS2002. Not much, really, for a much better simulation.

How big is your hard drive?

Below is the system requirements for FS9 that Microsoft posted on its Flight Simulator 2004 site. We users have found that is definitely not going to allow proper sim play. I doubt "fs2k2" system requirements are much different. If at all possible, you should consider an upgrade. Btw, what are your current system specs?

* Microsoft® Windows® 98/Me/XP/2000
* PC with 450 MHz equivalent or higher processor
* 128 MB of system RAM for 2000/XP, 64 MB RAM for 98/Me
* 1.8 GB available hard disk space
* 4x speed or faster CD-ROM drive
* 8 MB video card required
* Sound card, speakers or headphones required for audio
* Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device
* 56.6 Kbps or better modem for online play

hi, i dont think it will do you any good to give my system specs, cause the computer im using now is not the one i will be using. u see im moving back to lebanon, where i lived for 11 years, but i know that our computer over there is nothing near as good as the one here in dallas. so i was just wondering if its worth it to use fs2k2 with a computer thats not so good, considering the loss of fs9 excellence, (if that makes any sense,,,,sorry for being vague there). anyways, when i return home next week, i will post my specs for you. Thanks

Fs2002 is not as demanding as fs9,the graphics are not as good, Ermm... and very little traffic

It should run on ok on a lesser system
