FS2004 - General stability tests...

Recommended Posts

I know (considering the patch discussion) that issues may arise post release blaming stability issues on Microsoft and demanding a patch.I wanted to post this thread as a note of optimism, and perhaps as a preventive measure.If FS2004 were unstable, my system should cause it in spades. Win 98, an old BX MB that hasn't had a BIOS update or chipset driver update available in years, running a fairly new tech video card and off the shelf, rather cheap RAM.I haven't frozen or locked once. Having just purchased the GEF '4200, I wanted to burn it in so I ran FS2004 for almost twenty hours yesterday. To save money, I went with an OEM model, so I wanted as many testing hours on it as I could get. I decided to stick with the 30.82 drivers, and applied the Rivatuner patch to access negative LOD settings. I tweaked the card to a -.5 LOD, using only 2X aniso and AA. And no stabilty issues.FS2004 will be installed on all types of systems. I can't guarantee someone won't run into issues. But my biggest pet peeve in any sim--crashing for no good reason, is not an issue for me when it could have been, given my system's age and lack of support...Regards,
