Need Some Info On FS2k2

Sun Feb 16, 2003 2:20 am

Hey guys,

I just had a quick question about the minimum processor speed for FS2k2. I read the thread about the new FS version coming out. The minimum processer speed for it is 450 Mhz. My current computer is a 450 Mhz, and I'm a teeny bit worried that the new FS version will tax my system to the point that the simulator wouldn't be worth having without some serious hardware upgrades, and I'm not sure if I want to plunk down another $150 for more RAM and a faster microprocesser. Anyway, I have FS2k2 on my computer, and it works quite well, but I can't remember what the minimum processer speed is for FS2k2. If anyone can remember this bit of trivia, that'd be great.

...Or I guess I could just go down to the store and look at it.

Yeah, if it turns out that I can't run the new version without serious system impediments, I'll probably just pick up Links 2003.
