FS2004 by Damien Booth
Hi, I was just browsing this news group and noticed that FS2004 is now available. Yes I know I'm probably a little the times. Anyway, I've been using FS2002 for over a year now and I think it's great, but no doubt FS2004 is going to be better. The question is how much better and is it worth going...

FS2002 problems - Radeon 9700 by Ross Edmondson
My machine is a 2.8Ghz P4, 1 gig ram, ATI motherboard and Saphire ATI Radeon 9700 pro graphics card. Running flight sim 2002 with all sliders maxed, the graphics are worse (blockier with less colour gradients) than on my old geforce2. Can anyone suggest where to start looking? Thanks, Ross
