A bit of a frame rate problem.

Howdy,I noticed that you video card memory is reported at 2MB. That may have something to do with your frame rate. I have a Visiontek Xtasty Geforce 4 64MB card and my average frame rates are around 18-20 FPS. The sim is very smooth for me at those frames rates, but if your video card only has 2MB of memory, that's not going to be enough for Flight Simulator to run very well.Anyways, you might consider upgrading to a Nvidia Geforce card.Scott :-)ATP/CFIIP.S. I see your a fellow Falcon 20 pilot. I am typed in the Falcon 20, flew one for 4 years. Great Jet! N666DA, SN129.

It's a nice jet, very easy to fly, we have a fleet of about 15 Falcon 20's, 15 Lear 24's, 2 737's and 3 DC-9's. I think I'll buy one of these, probably run fs2k2 a lot better.
