Looking for the best updates to use with F4 original version. I am looking to fix some of the quirks in the training missions and AI. I dont fly online so that part is not as important as the other things. I have an older computer so I am not really looking to bog it down with alot of unneeded stuff.

I am running an:
AMD 1.2 TBIRD
384MB ram
64mg GForce

I am upgrading the computer in 6 months but need to use what I have for now. Daughter comes first ,she got a new one for christmas.

Thanks for the info

Mark

I'd recommend the Superpak 4.2 one click installer (OCI).
It'll run fine on that rig, not sure where it's hosted anymore, so do a google.

- install F4
- run the oci.

That's it.

I don't think FF would be a good choice with his specs.

Thanks for the replies. I bought an FX5200 video card w/256mbDDR - computer crashed and it took 3 days to get it back up. Anyone have any luck with the FX5200 - thought I would give it a shot for $50.

Thanks

Mark

Well, I ended up scrapping the old box. After installing the FX5200 I never could get the computer to run right. Even tried installing my old video card, bios update,numerous windows reinstalls I always had a resource leak, which I never had before in the last three years. To make a long story short, after a month of frustration I punched the tower crushing the front of the case dislodging the video card and sound card from the motherboard as it hit the wall at about Mach1 (Look on the wifes face was priceless). I happened upon a great deal on my new computer


P4 2.0 gig - XP pro
Onboard video 64 meg/onboard sound
768 meg ram (2100)

I know the graphics will be limited but cant be much worse than my old box with Geforce 64 meg card can it
Anyone tried to run Falcon on one of these Dell Boxes? I am debating loading Falcon till I get a descent Video Card.

Dont let anyone buy a FX5200 card - very bad experience

Thanks

Mark

Oy vey. \:\)

Well, it kinda depends on your point of view. \:D

There is no single big difference IMHO, just a bunch of small ones.

My advice is usually for people to pick one, install it, play it for awhile, then install the other one, play it for awhile, and see which one they like best.

Good luck. \:\)
