Condor 2 on Linux + miscellaneous

Post by jjmaloss » Thu Feb 22, 2018 5:55 am

I just bought Condor 2 that I installed on the same Windoze 7 virtual machine.

I would say that Condor 2 is more or less working. By setting the graphic controls to medium, I get a decent 25 fps, which is marginal but usable. I did not run VMware as root. I know that Google-Earth needs to be run as root to get a smooth flow.

About VMware, I never tried with a host as Windoze 7 running as root. I did not spend a lot of time on tweaking the graphic rendering. So if BootCamp is as good as VMware, the Mac geeks should be able to run Condor 2 without problem.

I noticed that the computation of the cloud base is strictly based on the Henning formula (125 metres per kelvin). I do think that the documentation should have a small theoretical part (Henning, Brunt-Väisälä frequency and others). I did not test the waves because I have no scenery about Minden in V2. I flew there several times and I have a vivid memory of my adventures. So with this scenery, I would like to reproduce my flight. I have a question about wave: what is dU / dz where U is the synoptic wind?

I do have the trace, movies and soundings about these adventurous flights. What is the distance between primary and secondary wave? How is it computed? Also, is Condor 1 still available; I am not joking because there are tons of scenery in V1 and it will take a long while that we will get equivalent scenery in V2 since there is no convertor.

Thanks to the developers for the job done.

Hello,

During the Covid-19 confinement I'd like to run our simulator as host on a Linux server so that our club can fly together. Do you know if it works as host under Wine ?

Thanks

The dedicated server works fine under Wine for me.

What is?

This?
Windows simply has better support for not only games, but also the drivers, software, and peripherals that make a gaming setup more than a few components in a case. In addition, developers are much more likely to address problems on Windows, as just over 1% of Steam users are on Linux.
