New to 2004

Recommended Posts

Hi EveryoneHave been out of simming for a few years and just getting back into it. Have been reading the forums here for a few weeks and finally made an informed decision to purchase fs 2004 over the newly released version as I dont want to upgrade in a years time to use new add on aircraft. Was familiar with 767PIC in FS2002 and now want to install PMDG 737. My system includes a new Dual Core 3.4ghz with 2mb ram and Nvidia 7600GT graphics card and 19 inch wide screen monitor.My question is after installing fs 2004, what changes to fs setup will I need to make to get it running well. I notice people talking about fs9.1, is there a patch for fs 2004 I am not aware of? Any tips before starting these instals would be greatly appreciated. Many ThanksTim Carter

The 9.1 patch would be already built into any new software. I bought mine 5 months ago and it was part of the package but, of course, you could find some year old stock. Just check the pack when you buy.
