I just completed the system requirements

  • Intel Core  i5 Quad Core (i7 recommended), AMD Ryzen 5 (Ryzen 7 recommended)
  • 16 GB RAM (32 GB recommended)
  • Direct X11 compatible Graphics Card with minimal 3Gb (6Gb recommended), GTX 1050 class minimal, GTX 1070 class recommended
  • Lockheed Martin Prepa3D v4.3 (please note not compatible with older versions)
  • Windows 10 64-bit, fully updated
  • Control hardware with rudder and throttle channels
  • 1024×768 minimum screen resolution for primary display
  •  Adobe Acrobat® Reader 8 minimal to read and print the manual

 

I love how the recommended specs are a kind of a beast of a machine, and then:

 

  • 1024×768 minimum screen resolution for primary display.         :banghead1_s:

Whew, I'm glad I went with 32 GB RAM when I built mine. 

 

I figured I was way ahead of the curve but I guess the curve has caught me.  In Soviet Russia curve stays ahead of YOU.

Ooof, didn't see those requirements coming. Hopefully it's like the other A320 where it's more of a *soft* 16 GB RAM ;) this is a grim reminder that I need to ditch my laptop and get myself a decent system.

I only have 8 gb of ram and am not to worried. I also don't crank everything to the right in the settings either. Even on X plane 11 ortho+ mesh Haven't seen any issues, but again I don't cranck setting. Just enough to where it looks really good. :)

16 gigs of RAM as minimum ? Holy cow, P3D v4.3 must be a massive update then. Under my current settings, I dont think I've ever seen P3D cross even 6GB of RAM usage at dense scenery with an addon airliner. I'll have to see how things stand after v4.3 release.

A lot of the times the min requirements are very... optimistic.

The bottom line here is that if you can run your sim well with PMDG aircraft and the like you will have no problem with the AS Airbus. Our add on is in no way more taxing than the others. (Even less so in most cases).

Thank goodness, I was about to lose sleep over this :D

That's odd. Once I put up my desk, where my monitor and keyboard sit, I immediately found the perfect space to put my rudder pedals - under the desk. Unless you're not using a desktop, of course. My problem initially was too much empty space in my wallet, but that's another problem. :)

 

Well - it could be, that no everyone has a dedicated desk for their flightsim setup?

 

For me, personally, I am sitting with a laptop on my/our (although my wife would probably claim ownership if it came to it...) coffee-table. It's not ideal, but it's working for me, since I don't have a dedicated room/office for this. My wife has enough reservations with my laptop (which isn't pretty, I might add!) and throttle, joystick.

... now, I imagine, she would be less than thrilled, if I added pedals on the floor or below the table... :lol:

Sound the alarms, conspiracy theory tone detected.

 

Indeed, it has nothing to do with that, only with the fact a new version of the sim is about to be released.

I will lower it to 8. That will affect how the sim works, it has relatively little to do with the add-on.

Does this mean that you wont be able to run the airbus on windows 7 64 bit

at all? If so that really does suck.......

We can only say we have never tried that.  Keep in mind that Microsoft mainstream support for 7 ended on January 13, 2015, so if we have an issue between the product and the OS Microsoft will not support us in any way. That makes it very hard to guarantee things work. 

 

So it will probably work but if there are issue that are related to the OS (or runtimes) you are on your own.

Hi Mathjis,

 

Will I be able to fly with them on Windows 7 64bit or not?

 

Thanks, Grant

 

Probably, but as Microsoft does not support this OS anymore it is hard for us to offer guarantees.

Is it possible or is it barred that the bus will be released before V4.3 is out (maybe V4.3 will be out on the 30. of June for example)?

No, that will not happen as Mathijs already explained above that the released P3Dv4.3 version is needed to compile the bus against. 

 

So LM release first, then the bus.

Not sure if we ever showed you this:

If you hear the door chime you check the door cam to see who is buzzing. When it is good folk you open the door. 

 

If there nobody it shows like this:

And do we get a chance to take the lovely flight attendant out on a coffee after the landing? :D
