Summary: It does not work. When put in hard drive the drive runs at a high speed and becomes very hot. I tried both drives. It starts to list all the files on the discs. That is not the normal startup mode for FltSim X. Microsoft no longer supports the product. I would like return this order.
Summary: I have 3 systems a Dell 3.2GHz P4 w/ 2GB RAM, A Dell E510 PD 2.8 w/2 GB RAM And a self built Core2 Duo E6600 w/2GB RAM. The P4 is using an ATI x600 and the PD and Core2 Duo are using an ATI x1900 Video Card. I have no problems running other games or anything else for that matter.
Summary: This product was developed for Windows Vista, the new operating system that microsoft is coming out with. It was made with direct X 10 in mind. It will run on DX9 compliant hardward but you get really carpy performance.
Summary: Background about myself, I am a Private Pilot, and Computer Programmer. My basis for this review is that this sim is a slideshow on my computer. I have an Average setup, like most people would have, here is the background on that. I have an Athlon 64 3200+, a GeForce 7600 GS 512MB, and 2GB of RAM.
Summary: Although there are many features and advanced graphics in this simulator, you won't be able to see or use them with present day technology, if ever! MS goofed in their "future tech" considerations and did not provide dual core technology or SLI and banked on ever higher speed single core cpus - this...
Summary: I am an avid FS operator who was a beta tester for FS2004 and have logged over 3500 hours and 1500 flights in most all of the 2004 inventory. But, I am struggling with how to get the same satisfaction out of this FSX product.
Summary: I don't normally write reviews for products, but I thought I would help spread the warning about this product. It took 2 hours to install...30 minutes to get the first flight running, and then it took 2 hours to uninstall! My system is NOT an antique either.
Summary: Half of designing a game is making it available for at least half of the users out there. This game fails because it is simply too demanding on the system. It makes me wonder how Microsoft even tested it.
Summary: My Fun rating of 5 is based upon my use of FS 2004 and what FSX is SUPPOSED to do. Like so many users of earlier versions, I was disappointed and dismayed that this program is all but unusable on my Pentium 4, 2.6 Ghz with 512 Mb of RAM, which exceeds the minimum specified by Microsoft.
