Exclamation Re: G5 Upgrade

Purchased upgrade for $ 83.00 plus tax then had to upgrade Video Card in computer that was $ 109.00 plus tax. HP computer only 3 yrs. old.

Graphics are an improvement. Flying off water is realistic now.
Note: Check the spec's required to run G5, against your computer spec's.

Re: G5 Upgrade

Bought a new PC, Core 2 quad, with 27" monitor, 1 G on the graphics card. Have both Realflight 4.5 and G5 on the desktop. No noticeable difference in the graphics, clean. Audio the same with external speakers, life-like. The Harrier now flies "better". With the G4.5 there was coupling; rolling severely left with right rud. Now with the G5 it's controllable; now the left portion of the horizontal stab breaks off upon application of right rud in FF flight !! Must be REAL flight

Re: G5 Upgrade

I just picked it up.
I havnt tried the streamer cut combat yet, but that it what I picked it up for.
even though I got the upgrade, it did a complete seperate install (different HDD than G4.5) so there is no problem with compatibility with multiplayer who havnt upgraded.
(I dont know if the multiplayer is supposed to work across the different G4.X and G5 versions but you can keep the older version if you have friends with the older one )
That others may live
