Exhibit - F/A-18 by Janes Combat Simulations
First ConclusionsAll the complexity takes a lot of CPU power and a good 3D graphics card – even high end systems (600 MHz class) may require turning down some details to get a good frame rate.
Hint: Virtual Cockpit detail is a big frame rate killer – it looks ragged, but turn it down to medium or low – there is no 2D cockpit, only the virtual one.
The first release was quite solid for a sim of this complexity (the frame rate was the biggest complaint), and a patch came out fairly quickly to address problems that some had experienced (but not frame rate) and to add a few features.
This is a fitting successor to Jane's F-15, and if you enjoy that sim or Falcon 4, you will surely find a lot to like in Jane's F/A-18.
