Simulator 2000 is the latest in the long line of the Flight
Simulator series, boasting new aircraft, improved visuals
& more realism than ever. One problem associated with
this is how resource intensive the game is, even despite its
“age” it can bring the newest PC’s to a crawl.

your particular machine. With that, on with the guide.
the latest patch for Flight Simulator 2000, depending on
which version you have (Standard or Professional Edition),
you can download the latest patch from Microsoft.

improvements are a result of optimizing the artwork &
lighting for gauges that rotate, & optimizations to
7.0A or higher, Flight Simulator 2000 uses Direct3D for
hardware rendering so it is highly recommended to have the
latest version installed.

drive as possible. Particularly make sure that you install
the locations around which you will be doing your flying
