FS9 on Vista

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone: After a long hiatus, I am back to flight simming and just recieved a new laptop with the following: ATI x1400 (128 MB) Core2Duo 2.0 Ghz Windows Vista Business x64 So my question is, should FS9 run on such a setup, and is there anyone running on such a configuration and can offer some tips? Any plugins/add-ons that do not work?Thanks!

Looking at your specs, as quoted, there's no reason that you shouldn't be able to run FS9 OK; I tried it on my laptop which only has an Intel GMA945 graphics chipset, and a 1.6ghz Core Duo CPU and it ran fine! I couldn't get any Anti Alaising to hold so it didn't look too good, but I loaded up a few add-ons: GE, FE, Shockwaves WWII fighters, and it ran fine, and at a steady 30fps unless around really busy airports! You 'should' be OK, and better performance too!

My only concern would be the video drivers for Vista.I have an X1400 in a Core Duo 1.6 machine running great on XP. I didn't even try it on Vista as there were no current Vista drivers for the x1400 (I have a dell). I have dual boot setup, so I decided to game with XP for now...No harm in you giving it a try, though :)
