I can understand your reasoning Andy with V2 hopefully to be released soon
I noticed I had my view distance on very high too so I've changed that to high and I'll re-try the flight again at some point in time. This may resolve the issue.
I'm not sure what the memory restriction is with DX7 but I know with DX9 it's 4gb. As you say I'm pretty sure Condor 2 will be optimised to make use of much more ram and 64bit architecture so all of these niggles should disappear.
Bronze by Spring......I hope!
Bronze C completed 3-4-2017 - Hoping worked
Silver height / duration complete - Just that 50km distance flight now. Roll on Spring!
