Microsoft Flight Simulator X

  1. Hello,

    I recently bought and installed the Flight Simulator X Acceleration Pack in my laptop, but when I play it I have a poor performance, such as low FPS and chopped gameplay, so I have weather, scenary and traffic in very low, but for the resolution it is the same for my computer to use a low one (1024 x ....) than the higher one (1280 x ....). Does anybody know how I can fix it? My laptop has the following specification:

    Acer Aspire 5715Z
    OS: Windows Vista 32 bit with DirectX 10,
    Processor: Intel Pentium dual-core T2370 (1.73 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 1 MB L2 Cache),
    2GB RAM,
    250 BG HDD,
    Video Card: 358 MB Mobile Intel Graphic Media Accelerator X3100,
    Chipset: Mobile Intel (R) 965 Express Chipset Family,
    Controller Version: 7.15.0010.1666,

    I am not sure if it is because it uses a lot of CPU resources, or if it is because of the processor or the Video Card. I have other games as Age of Empires 3 and it has a high performance, even if guns are firing!

    Thanks.

    Everybody complains about this. I think the program is a resource from the jump.

    Now FS2004, that will run great on anything. And it doesn't have to be activated.
