View Full Version : To patch up or not to patch up

07-01-2005, 02:12 AM
Just wondering if I should patch up to 401. I have a medium (perhaps low side of medium I suspect) range computer set up. Am I going to get a big frame hit if I patch up? If so what am I gaining? Is the behaviour of the ai planes an improvement that justifys this?

With the old clouds, I don't notice any frame hit. I've got a 1.5ghz, 512mb and Ti4400.

Certainly no reason not to patch. The FM and AI is generally better, as well as new planes.

One reason not to patch might be the absence of some kind of rudder control. Keyboard is no longer practical, given the increased yaw inertia.

Patch up m8. Just do like the m8 above and turn the new clouds off.

So how are we supposed to control rudder now then if that's the case?

It's not as much of a resource-hog as you might have been led to believe and if you want to fly online in the best servers, then you'll need it.
