Laptop Flying

  • My wife is working from home and has taken over the desktop computer. I have an intel I5 powered laptop with 4gb of RAM. I have downloaded AFS2 onto it but get a grey screen with the spinning blue windows circle when I click on play.

    If I select the main computer name from the drop down box next to the play icon on the laptop, it changes to Stream and the game also opens on the desktop. The control is with the desktop and my laptop then seems to function as a second screen. Not what I want, but it shows that it will run on the laptop. How do I get it to run properly please?

  • Hi Jan,

    I have installed the whole 150.9 gb download of AFS2 plus my DLC onto the laptop without problems. It just gives me a grey screen with blue circle going round when I hit play. I tried to play a couple of times and then yesterday there was an option on Steam to Stream right next to the Play button, and when I hit that it fired up my main desktop PC and projected the AFS2 game onto my laptop. That was a bit weird, anyway:-

    My System

    intel (R) Core TM i5 CPU M 480 @ 2.67 ghz

    64 bit System with 4 gb RAM

    No mention of a graphics card so I am assuming it is integrated

  • What kind of 3D graphic card is installed in your laptop? Please ensure you install a dedicated 3D driver for your NVIDIA or AMD GPU. If you have fitted an INTEL GPU, you might be out of luck, only very few INTEL GPUs are suitable for Aerofly FS.
