FS 2002 Or FS 2004?

Mon Oct 06, 2003 7:44 pm

I have a Pentium III 997Mhz
384 MB RAM
Nvidia Geforce 2 32MB

Some people say I can run FS 2004. Others say they wouldn’t recommend it.

So what should y do? Buy FS 2004 or play it safe an buy FS 2002.

I only have played FS 98 so far.

Thanks in advance.

You CAN run FS2004, but I wouldn't recommend it  Laugh out loud

With your specs I'd buy neither, I'd buy a new PC instead... But if it's to be one or the other, FS2002 is your best bet for performance.

Yeah, it shouldnt be too bad for FS2002, but FS2004 might be a little choppy.

In my experience, FS2004 runs smoother than FS2002.

I was running FS2004 on a Pentium III 600MHz, 384MB PC100 SDRAM, Voodoo3 3000 AGP 16MB video card and while the graphics weren't good (because of my Voodoo3) I was getting good fps between 15 and 20 on the ground at detailed airports and in the air I got between 20 and 40fps.

For your system, FS2004 should run fine. But if you really want to fully enjoy it, you need a new computer.

That's why I'm using a P4 2.8GHz 1GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM, Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB.

I'm a frequent user of FS2002, pretty satisfied...I just checked out FS2004 (only the packing...) but in the description I miss 747, 737, 777, Lear...or at least some of these...I might be wrong, but I met FS2004 as a specialist for historical aviation, like some props on it, I think DC3 is on...
I personally wanted to be an airline pilot, so I stick to 737, 747, 777 and Airbus-Add-ons...not too much in the old beautiful ladies...
Apart from that, the power could become sort of wheeee....let's call it little...
I played the FS98 for Years before, it is sort of a classic, but the details on FS2002 are just amazing! Contrails, sun-reflecions, captain in the front-office, shadows...oh my god, this is really fun!

Hope I could help out.

Oh, by the way, if You care, the 2000 version did like I remember the Concorde, which is by now a total classic! So as a Concorde-guy...E-Bay offers used FS2000...

Arright, let us hear bout Your experiances!
