Sounds rediciolous (I'll look up how to spell that word later), but I was wondering what I would profit the most from. Ok, this is my situation:

I only have FS98, now laugh it out and pay attention again.  Smile I want a newer version, and to be honest 2000 pleases me very much, and surely it ust be cheaper to buy than FS2002?

Do I get ALOT more out of spending twice as much money on the newest version? (Keep in mind we students don't have the most money.)  Insane

Any help will be useful.  Smile

FS2002 Rules! Before I installed FS2k2 I installed Fs2k on my other computer and promised that i will go back to it some time or later. But I have never, because FS2k2 rules!  Big thumbs up ATC, AI, Great Planes.

FS2002 runs much much much....much smoother on my system than FS2000 ever did. I don't know why, but I get much higher framerates, even on my PII MMX 350mHz 128mB RAM and 32mB RIVA TNT2 ULTRA.

I'd go for it...you owe it to yourself  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Since i play FS95, one thing that i learned from this addictive hobby is to upgrade my computer for every new version. Microsoft gives FS a few new goodies for every new FS version. Instead of improving the existing features, Micorsoft spends a lot of resources in building new features in order to attract customers to buy the new version. Good Marketing!!!

I have owned every version of FS since FS95, when MS decided to make the new FS every two years, i said it was too fast and i would not buy the next version and would wait for the one following. At the present time, I vow not to buy FS2004, but i guess Microsoft will give us some new features which i will not able to resist (AGAIN!). Unforuntately, i couldnt keep myself from the temptation and put myself into this formula:

1.own FS95 -> unsatisfied with my existing hardware -> upgrade to P1 -> nice flying for 2 years -> FS98 relaeased -> attracted by the new multiplayer features

2.own FS98 -> unsatisfied with my existing hardware -> upgrade to P200 -> nice flying for 2 years -> FS2000 relaeased -> attracted by the new graphic system and GPS ->own FS2000

3.own FS2000 -> unsatisfied with my existing hardware -> upgrade to P600 -> nice flying for 2 years -> FS2002 relaeased -> attracted by the new ATC and AI system ->own FS2002

4.own FS2002 -> unsatisfied with my hardware -> upgrade to AMD1.6 ->..............to be continued.....

Everytime i got new FS, i said it was the best FS ever, but the word would be replaced with the newer one. I guess i would be DOUBLE my happiness and satisfication (and financial health) if i upgrade the system every four years. So, if u can afford, then buy new FS and upgrade you hardware every two years. Otherwise, a big change in every four years sounds more affordable and reasonable.

Xtristarx, actually 100 is the fastest you are allowed in Norway, but on long journeys nobody stays under 120 on long stretches of road. Big grin Nice to hear you had a pleasent trip.  Smile

£40 for the "piece of cake" version, and £65 for the pros? Guess it will have to be the piece of cake one, but it's kinda challenging with the atc, isn't it?

Crank, I'm not sure because I'm going to borrow my cousins PC when he's off to join the army. Big grin

I'll probably buy the game when I go to england this summer, won't get the PC needed till I get back home anyway.  Smile

The Pro version is really the best way forward. You'll want the extras it offers as they are required by many (especially freeware) addons.

You mean download planes and stuff? Coz that wouldn't be a problem if that's the only thing the pro edition is worth paying an extra £25 for.  Smile

For the owner of Pro version (counting me!), they will say pro is the best. On the other hand, standard verison has its value.

If u are bargin shopper and you dont enter in editing planes, being on-instructor, then you dont really need the extra stuff in pro version. Most add-on planes and panels are compatible in both standard and pro version, and you cant tell the difference. It depends on you if the extra features are worth in paying for.

like to fly turboprops? You need the Pro version...
The Std does not allow for turboprop flight dynamics.

When I bought it, the difference was only about 10 Euro too...

Thanks for helping me decide. I'm ordering FS2002 soon. I found it for £39.99 at HMV. Sounds cheap to me. Big grin

I was astounded by the difference between FS2K2 Pro and FS2K. 2k2 runs much more smoothly on my 466 Celeron than 2K ever did, plus having intigrated ATC and AI aircraft make for a MUCH more realistic simulation.

But wait a minute, let's go back to the turboprob thing. I couldn't fly a turboprop if i downloaded it from the web for example? Even FS98 allowed that.  Smile

Of course you can but if it comes with a panel you might be in trouble because it might have some guages that only the Pro version has.
