  • FSX Questions

    Hey guys, just a couple questions about FSX? If my framerates are pretty average for FS2004 are they going to be about the same in FSX? Also, is it mandatory that I have Windows Vista to run FSX? I've heard a few different answers in different places for these questions, but I wanted to hear your thoughts.

      nope, vista isn't necessary, nor is a dual-core processor, but both are reccomended.

        FSX will not require Vista. you can run it on XP but I think the minimums are something like a 1.8GHz processor and a lot of ram or else you will be looking at a series of stills called Microsoft in Flight.

            I'm not sure that all of the airports have jetways.

            The aviation laptops here are Dual Centrino's and apparently they will be putting vista on the laptops, I have Vista on my desktop now and all my games, including FS 2004 run amazing with it.

                Are they putting Vista on the laptops as of now?

                  If you get mediocre frames now they are gonna suck in fsX. What kind of settings are you running with fs2004? (Of course they're gonna be bad with extremely dense scenery and AI set to like 100%)

                    I don't think Vista is out yet. I got my Dell laptop about a month ago and it came with XP. However I purchased enough RAM and a graphics card to run FSX.

                      I think they said they will as soon as it comes out.
