Will the CRJ work on my hardware? Test available!


Recommended Posts

Hello, all,

I have just completed pushing up a new page for a CRJ-200 Hardware Diagnostic. In short, this is a test aircraft with a plug-in that will tell you whether the CRJ will even work on your hardware. Throughout some tests, we have found some older hardware that just doesn't make the cut and will not be able to run the CRJ displays. As such, we have created this tester for you. This does NOT indicate smooth frame rates, or anything of that nature. This test will simply tell you whether your hardware has the ability to even run the CRJ based on your GPU, CPU, and associated drivers!

There are testers available for Mac, Windows, and Linux here: http://www.x-aviation.com/catalog/crj_test.php

Please follow all instructions as indicated in the installer!

Good Luck! :)

Sorry, could not resist. Glad to see that message. Was quite sure I will be able to run this file but still held my breath for second or two while it was loading. (Specs in signature) Best! Ka

Have you guys thought about releasing a demo of the plane where the plugin sets a 10 minute time limit? Although this test gives info on compatibility, there's no actual way of knowing about the perfo

The crj-tester is a nice Airplane, unfortunately not very comfortable to sit and it has a constant drift to the right :)

Thank you, Cameron, for the tester.

:)

It even works on the old black macbook with the following specs:

Thank you for the tester! I'll try in a hour... But, does it mean we are very close to release???

It means we'd like you to test your system. :)

You know, Cameron, this test is more than a great reason to delay the release. I appreciate your efforts, along with Javier's and Phillip's.

Thanks!  ;D

Thanks guys! Very clever idea. Works even on the mighty beast that is the macbook air. (Latest and lowest spec'd one - 1.4 ghz, 2 gb ram, 256 mb vram) Got about 45-50 fps around LOWI with pretty high rendering settings and full resolution also. Is this an indication of the FPS to expect with the actual CRJ? (obviously minus the visual models impact)

EDIT: sorry Cameron, getting late here obviously.

Very good that you post your specs - and even more that it works for you :)

If you have an old ATI on Mac it _might_ not work. I'm very eager to see more results!

PS: The processor specs are not important - here we are testing openGL stuff. So the model/make of your GPU is important.

Yeah, "CRJ WILL WORK" !!!

Please .. take in consideration that this is not an FPS tester... it is a "will I be able to see the OpenGL graphics displays on my computer?" tester.

FPS will be less than you have for sure. For example.. on my computer an imac Intel i3 3.20 dual core 4gb ram windows 7 bootcamp, it is:

Tester: 60-70 fps

CRJ200: 30fps.

So.. if someone is having 30 already with the tester ON MY SALAMANCA SCENERY!! (IS IMPORTANT YOU HAVE THE SAME SCENERY AS ME) WITH THE RENDERING OPTIONS I show on the tutorial.pdf... then you are not going to run the plane very well.

This is only a tester to verify you are going to run the plane. NOT HOW GOOD YOU ARE GOING TO RUN IT!! but you are going to run it.. even al 5 frames per second (if your computer is too old).
