I'm glad that I downloaded the Clearview demo before going for the full purchase.
Clearview runs extremely slow on my machine.
Did anyone else run into this problem?

I have an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU @ 1.8 GHz and 1 GB of RAM
I seem to have Mobile Intel GMA X3100 video card with 128 MB of memory
I DO NOT have a 3D video card or a DirectX 9 card as indicated on the Clearview site.

Is there a workaround for this problem? Can I run it normally after installing some software or with different configuration / settings?

How does HeliSimRC compare with Clearview. Has anybody used both?

Thanks!

Have you tried using the 'ClearView1' startup instead of the 'ClearView' one. It is meant for lower power machines. You do need the latest DirectX and Java installed.

I found HeliSimRC realism very poor when compared to ClearViews'.

Works perfect after installing DirectX!
I'll get the latest Java as well.
Thanks!

Thanks for the update. You will find my ClearView models here. Scroll towards the bottom of the page. The V-22 I worked with Ken on is worth a look.

You'll get minium performance with just 1 GB of main memory. You will need at least 2 gb. I've got 6GB and it's super. My machine is for gaming only so games play real well.

Your swapping memory all the time is why it's so slow. Upgrade to 2 gb and I think you'll be good.

That was very helpful! I upgraded to 2.5 Gb and it did the trick. Didn't need a video card or something difficult like that.

Thanks for the perfect advice! Cool
