What Are Your Disply Settings In FS2002?

Wed Jun 12, 2002 5:15 am

I just wanted to know if anyone had a similar system to mine. I made some upgrades but I want to get the best looking simulation with good performance. I have the following:

400MHz PII
10GB Hard Drive
384 MB RAM
64 MB GeForce 2 Ti Video card

What display settings are you using? What display settings make a difference? Thanks for your help.

Regards

Thanks Crank, it's good to hear from a person who has a similar processor and hard drive. 15 fps is a good and smooth simulation? I have it at 25 for now, but when clouds come in, they tend to drop. So you are satisfied with the overall performance? I mean when you are in the clouds or look out the side, the ground looks good enough?
