What RES do you run FS2k2 in?

Recommended Posts

I have a 19 inch monitor, and been running it at 1280x1024.Curious what size monitor and resolution everyone is running it with, and if they are happy with it?

I use to always run 1280*1024 on my 17" monitor. It was mentioned that the aspect ratio was wrong & that my gauges would not be circular. It just wasn't the case, & they were VERY round!L.Adamson

19 inch monitor . 1600x1200x32 ,see no higher frame rate with lower resolution .Reconmmend you set frame rates at about 20 FPS {in the FS21002 menu} as this will give very acceptable viewing and release computer resources .The 1600x1200 naturally gives a greater wide angle pilots view which is utmost importance in flight simming.Cheers........XP 1800+geforce3 ti 200512 ram

jerrycwo4 I have a 22" ViewSonic P225f and i run it at 1152 x 864 x 32. I've tried higher resolutions, but it makes the instruments and their displays TOO small to read EVERYTHING. I'll bet you can NOT read EVERY display on some of the instruments at those higher resolutsions. Can you read the "29.92" on ALL of the aircrafts ?jerry

I run FS2002 at 1280*1024*16 on a 19" Iiyama Pro 454 and occasionally at 1600*1200*16. At the higher resolution there is no need for AA but if I did there's no impact on frame rates.I'm lucky enough to have a 2000XP and GeForce4 Ti4600 which give superb results.Interesting survey :-)Cheers,

I run an old surplus 17-inch HP (It still looks great) at 1152 by 864 (32-bit, no FSAA) mainly because this is the highest res supported without too much flickering. I used to run at 1024 but I didn't notice any framerate hit when I bumped it up.-Leon Medado

Gizbug,I gave up on Wilco's Airport series back in FS2000. In comparison to scenery in FS2002 the code is very inefficient and no-one with even the fastest machines will be able to run them enjoyably.Time to move on I'm afraid.Cheers,

Actually I can't make up my mind - 1600x1200x32 without antializing or 1280x1024 with antializing..... There is no speed difference, the card is sitting waiting for the CPU anyway, but it can't do antializing at 1600x1200 as far as I can see. I run on an Athlon 1800+, ATI 8500 on a 7 year old 21" Compaq monitor.
