Make sure you have the latest drivers, defrag your harddrive, and remove any spyware. That should give you a .0000000000000000000000000001 increase in FPS.

The sad thing is that my laptop only has 32MB of VRAM :(I do have 1.2GB of main RAM though :)

Just remember that if you order the disk set, floppies 11 through through 56 hold the main textures, and diskettes 57 through 62 contain the fuel planner. We expect heavy volume on our dual line Hayes 300 baud modems pool, remember to use 8 bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit because even parity really never did work, and do order soon so you can complete the download before Thanksgiving.Cheers,EtiennePS: I still have a working IBM XT running DOS 3.3, and it still counts memory 1k at a time from 1 to 256, and no, you can't bypass it.

Love the replies! Of course I'm kidding, but could you imagine?? Before my grandmother died she was using a Pentium MMX 133. You can only guess how slow it was just to open a simple program. I always offered to upgrade it a little so it wasn't too slow but she didn't mind. Funny to think how much has changed in just a few years.

I hate to say this but you are going to have to upgrade your machine in order to run the 747. I know that it is a hard thing to do, to part with your beloved machine but I don't think that you are going to enjoy the 747 on such a computer. I will spare you a long drawn out explanation of the type of machine that you will probably require but if you need such help I will be here for you. In fact I just upgraded my machine to be ready for the new 747 when it is ready, I like to be on the cutting edge. Come to think of it maybe I could sell you my old computer so you would be better set for the 747, it is a Pentium II 350 with 128 MB of memory and a 64 MB video card. I could probably let you have this speed demon at the discounted price of $3200.00, I'll even throw in a free 256 megabyte hard drive! This system should provide you with plenty of power to really enjoy the 747 (or at least a picture on one!). Think it over and let me know if you are interested. :-) Just to make sure that everyone is clear, the above was a joke. I am not trying to sell such a system nor would I try to sell a system like that so cheaply! :-lolTake care,Philip Olsonhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/supporter.jpg

Oh my goth . . . I just had flashbacks to my first computer . . . . such a difference.=============================================FIRST COMPUTER:Tandy 1000SXFloppy DriveSome little bit of -- well -- I think it was RAM . . .

I think, now that I am thinking about it, that I really need to upgrade. I could use getting my claws on that new Pentium processor T-Socket and I hear there is a better type of memory now. Wonder how much that will cost for upgrade.

Probably showing my age here but this thread got me digging through the boxes in the garage and I found I have every copy of MSFS since version 4.0.Back then it came on two disks. No, not CD's ..... floppies!!!If I remember correctly sound came out that little single built in speaker that was wired to the motherboard and RAM was measured in single digits. My 486/33 had no trouble keeping up with whatever Flight sim threw at it.I tried re-installing V4.0 but my P4 3.06GHz promptly spat it out again.John EDMONDSONYBBN (Brisbane)

Boy, I was a senior in HS when MSFS 4.0 came out. :( I didn't even run a computer at that time. I had been into the Commodore 64 and Texas Instrument Ti99. After that, I stopped computing until 93, but didn't start flight simming until 2000 came out.
