View Full Version : Slow appearance of runways
11-03-2003, 05:15 PM
Is there some setting (or combination of settings) that will cause airports and, more importantly, runways to appear before one is almost on top of them? While at the moment, LAGO Honolulu airport and 8L are the most annoying (I have posted this on the LAGO forum), the problem relates to most airports.

I've never experienced that problem, and I haven't heard many simmers speak of it as well. It could be an FS2004 settings issue, or something to do with your video card, maybe. If you'll list your system specs you may get better help.
Running FS2004 at 1280x940x32
Intel Pentium 4, 2.0 GHz
Windows XP Pro
512MB PC800 RDRAM,8100
128MB ATI Radeon 9600 Pro
Windows 2K/XP Omega 2.4.96a video drivers
19 inch Samsung SyncMaster 955DF Monitor
Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS
MS ForceFeedback 2 joystick

Based on your system specs, the issue may be your video card. I'm no expert, but I think that the GeForce2 MX is a 32MB card with 3+ year-old technology. That's probably on the low end for FS2004 performance. Do you know if your card is AGP or PCI? If it's PCI, that would diminish performance as well.
Again, someone else here may be able to speak to this better than I.
