The thing is with this, Infinite Flight developing at the pace it is, older devices are naturally going to struggle to run the simulator.
Older hardware always is going to struggle to render and smoothly run aircraft with hundreds of layers, animations and so forth, even with low poly rendering, there’s only so much a device is capable of drawing…
With new high quality features comes a hit to performance… I understand a lot of people have older phones that may not handle the simulator as well, but if Infinite Flight never innovated or improved, it’d still be developed to run on the windows phone, have no live instruments, probably not have global and just be pretty basic in general.
It’s the same as owning a gaming computer where after a few years the hardware will struggle to run newer games. Sure, not everyone can afford to buy a £2000 graphics card just so they can run Minecraft with ray tracing, so they buy something cheaper and run at lower graphics settings.
As much as I hate to admit it, you can pick up older iPads for a couple of hundred, and they’re normally pretty good at running the simulator, so perhaps with Christmas round the corner, it might be worth asking Santa for a new one 😜
