Hi all,

As we all waiting eagerly for the release of PSX,
I am wondering if PSX will run decently on my AMD fx-8150(8 core), Nvidia 650,
the reason I am saying this is that I was never able to run FSX for some reason on my
system with more than 10FPS, making it practicaly unflyable :(

thanks

Dear Hardy,

are processor speed and RAM size mandatory or recommended requirements?
Thank you,

Dear Aldo,

the system requirements are required.

The options are optional.


Cheers,

I just added this note to the system requirements above:

Caution:

At the time when this document was written (June 2014), Apple Retina displays were incompatible with Java and Precision Simulator. They did not show all flight deck panels, and decreased the frame rate below 10 fps. The problem may still persist.

Fortunately running a Windows Notebook & a Macbook Air Retina here.

Maybe a PSX beta tester could confirm if the retinas still (Mid June) have problems with Java?

Nooooo! I'm running a Retina, 13-inch, Late 2012 MacbookPro. I thought I had specs that would run PSX. Absolutely gutted to read the above. I was getting excited at the prospect of buying PSX in the very near future. Aghhhh! :(

744kid:

This blog says Retina compatibility issue (blurriness) is being addressed in JDK 8, which is in beta.

So it sounds like if there is not a fix yet, it may be coming.

Thanks, stekeller, but if I've read another post from Hardy correctly, the issue still isn't fixed: http://aerowinx.com/forum/topic.php?post=14676#post14676

So, Retina Macs are still no good? :(
