View Full Version : Poor Frame rates
01-05-2002, 12:14 PM
After the patch and all I feel that everything works real good and does as it should for the mostpart. But, and I believe it has been mentioned before, I get poor frame rates. It is quite frustrating to fly a whole flight with descent frames rates with everything running smooth and then when it comes time to land I start to get a lot of stuttering etc. which results in a poor landing or just makes it seem not that real anymore. I have a Athlon 1.2 64 mb Gforce card, and 256 ram. It seems to be able to run this sim well on FS2K2 one would need a faster computer then this and that ain't going to happen. The spot plane view, forget it, even worse. I would say I have most of the sliders about halfway or what it sets it to in the default setting anyway. If I have to go lower then all that what is the point of flying FS2K2. Any thoughts?

You are by far not the first person to experience this in FS2002, and I am hoping that MS had paid some attention to this, as they do visit the forums. Let's hope it is something that is addressed in a future patch for FS2002.

I know this has been mentioned many times before and I know how frustrating it must be, BUT have faith as there must be something in your setup causing the problem because I have a similar setup here (1.3 Ghz P4, 512 ram, 32 mb GeForce2 MX) and I get really smooth operation with the DF737 and I run 4 monitors and still get smooth operation.
I know this doesn't help much but I just wanted you to know it must be fixable as so many are running it just fine with lesser systems.
You might want to start reading the A-VSIM screenshot forum, there are several guys in there that are max tweakers and they are forever squeezing the last frame out of their systems.
Keep the faith Bro, for this too shall pass...

Thanks guys. Yes Lou hopefully a patch from MS will fix this strange thing. Your panel ran smooth as can be on my system in FS2000. Good day.
