Wiki / Start / Graphics Driver

Graphics Driver

Ignore this section if the simulator runs smooth and nice.

However, if the simulation runs very slow...

You should know that AeroSIMRC requires that the graphics driver of your graphics card is properly installed.

If the Graphics Driver is not installed correctly in your computer, Windows may use its own driver which ignores the cool acceleration hardware of your graphics card, resulting in a extremely slow frame rate.

See how to install the Graphics Driver here Wiki / Advanced / Install Graphic Driver

Wiki / Start / Minimum Requirements

Minimum Requirements

Unlike games with spectacular graphics, AeroSIMRC only needs a humble computer to run smoothly. We focus on training not spectacle.

Please download and try AeroSIMRC in your computer.

Recommended

For better performance, any dedicated graphics card will be great, for example a NVIDIA or AMD/ATI.

Wiki / Start / Safety

Safety

Unless you spend hours without blinking in front of the computer..., there is no specific health or safety risk involved in using AeroSIMRC

You will not cut your finger with the simulated propeller, nor crash your aircraft against anybody. No one in the simulator will complain if you fly over their heads.

Having said that, you should not develop bad habits in the simulator.

In real life, you must follow all applicable safety regulations, hence we strongly recommend that you start to put into practise such safety rules from the very first flight in the simulator.

First flight of your real aircraft

Our simulated aircraft have been designed and tested by experts. They are correctly trimmed, and do not present unwanted drift due to construction inacuracies or wrong configuration.

However, the first flight of your real aircraft should be performed by an experienced pilot, who will be able to react correctly in the likely event that your aircraft shows any drift during the flight.

After a few adjustments done by an experienced pilot, the aircraft will be a lot easier to fly.

Wiki / Start / Mac

Mac

AeroSIMRC requires Windows. However, Mac users have reported that AeroSIMRC runs fine on Mac in several configurations.

Options to run AeroSIMRC on Mac:

Before you buy AeroSIMRC, please download the software and try it in you system.
