Hi any flight gamers out there. Has anyone tried this game on a system like mine or near? I have a P2 600 256ram with 32mb Nvidia TnT2.
I really would like to know if my computer would handle it ok before I buy it. I read a review that used a P2 400 and the game played really well but I'd be interested to get closer to home comment/s.
Thanks heaps.

Hi there
If you really want to get in touch with other Flight Simmers, go to www.kiwifly.org or www.avsim.com. These are but 2 of the many flight sim sights. Its amazing the extent of the flight simming community and the range of things that you can get involved in and the number of things to download to enhance the flight simming experience. Anything from flying with others on line to being a virtual Air Traffic Controller for the virtual airways.
Happy Flying
Craigb.

I'm running it now. Your hardware is unlikely to give you much satisfaction with CFS3. It's fine on my work P4 2GHz with GeForce4 MX 64MB video, but it aint so grand on my home P3 1GHz with GeForce2 32MB. The game suffers from stuttering at moderate detail levels.

Check out the CFs3 forums at Netwings.org (http://www.netwings.org/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboard.cgi?az=list&forum=DCForumID27&conf=DCConfID2) for lots of discussion on it.

In short, I'm going to upgrade my video card, but I'd say it would not be worth your time trying with your current hardware.

Hey - what I do on my lunch break is my biz. Besides, I gotta write a review for PCW and it aint like they pay me for it.
