    32-bit on 64-bit Machine

    Thanks for the advice, all of you. I can’t afford to replace the iMac; I’ve already considered X-Plane however they don’t have sims for the aircraft, or if that aircraft is available it is of lower capability. Looks like I might have to start saving my pennies for a new PC.

    32-bit on 64-bit Machine

    Hi again fellow simmers After a bit of research, looks like my best option will be to use Bootcamp and that will give the best results and performance for P3D. Another party said he had problems with his iMac running very hot, and hasn’t been able to resolve, so he went the X-Plane route, if I remember correctly. I’ll include my machine specs below in the hopes it may help those with similar machines and installation resolving some potential concerns...

    32-bit on 64-bit Machine

    Greetings, fellow simmers My dilemma is that I have a 2015 iMac, running Parallels Desktop for any software I have that only runs on Windows. The aircraft and sim package creators I really wish to sim with are 32-bit, but my hardware is 64-bit. Clearly I’m not tech-savvy and I’m very new to the flight-simming world. Would really appreciate advice on how to avoid having to buy a new computer - I’ve looked at X-Plane, however the aircraft I really want (best sims, IMHO) presently come requiring 32-bit Direct-X. Flightsimware Mitsubishi MU-2, Eaglesoft Citation X, flightsimlabs A320 would be the ‘most-wanted’, but I have a list of others, too. Thanks in anticipation of your help and or advice.. ManukauL
