fsx/fsx-se? configuration guide


The AVSIM Basic FSX Configuration Guide provides members with a one-stop guide for configuring FSX for optimum performance.  Our goal at AVSIM is to make configuring FSX as simple as possible and to educate.  There are many FSX Configuration Guides published around the Internet and a member only has to do an Internet search using the Google or Bing search engines to find them.  


The Microsoft-owned Flight Simulator is possibly the game industry's longest-running continuous franchise. The first Microsoft-branded version was released in 1982 with the most recent version, FSX, released in 2006 and expanded in 2007 with the release of Acceleration/SP2.  FSX is a 32 bit application that can reside in a 64 bit Windows operating environment.  Acceleration and the freeware version SP2 included a preview to DX10 technology as the Microsoft team did not have sufficient time to completely program FSX for DX10.  They had hoped to finalize development in a future update (as well as improve on the FSX engine) but the development team (AKA Aces Studio) was released by Microsoft before those upgrades could be published.  Currently, an add-on developer has fixed many of the issues left behind by FSX.  You can get more information about DX10 in our DX10 Forum.
