Description

The second version of Microsoft's flight simulator. Just like the ones that came after, it was a very sophisticated simulator for its time. Major added features included more hardware support, more simulation variables, and many overall tweaks.

Trivia

Flight Simulator 2.0 added support for the PCjr's graphics modes, but also added support for one of several PCjr memory "sidecar" expansions to increase the operating speed of the simulator to match that of PCjr's bigger brother (the original PC). This is because the PCjr's way of handling memory (no DMA, so the video controller was used to refresh memory) was extremely slow, and running the game from the memory in the sidecar (which had its own refresh controller) made the game run at regular PC speeds.
