Hello Everyone,

What a great website! This is my first post on these forums so any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a group of 6-10 older PCs that are running Windows XP with 512-1024 of ram. Most have Nvidia 5600 AGP video cards but some have newer. I'm looking for a multiplayer flight sim that will run well on these machines so I can have a group of friends come over whenever the mood hits us to do some killing. Any ideas.

Thanks,

That is something that I should have put in my first post is that I am looking for a WW II game but I'm willing to try anything as long as it runs ok on these machines. I'm really looking for the following in the game.

Fun for a group to play.

Isn't expensive so that I can buy legit copies for each machine if needed.

Has plenty of multiplayer missions and terrains.

Doesn't require a 1000 man hours to learn.

I have a group of 12-16 friends and kids that hook up from time to time and this is something I'd like to add to the list of what we currently play on these machines.

Thanks,

Mate, if you're looking at WWI sims you could give this one a try, it's free!

While I might have a vested interest, I second what Marcos said about F-22 TAW. In fact, Total Air War 2.0 is multiplayer compatible, will work on a P2-300 running Win95 as well as an i5 running Win7, and it's a free download.

TAW is fairly high fidelity, though not to the level of Falcon 4 or Janes' F/A-18. That also makes it easier to pick up. We fly online every Wednesday and Sunday as well. Details of the multiplayer meetings are in the Combatsim TAW forum linked above.
