Help With Radeon 8500 Video Card

Recommended Posts

Guest

I recently upgraded my system, including a new graphics card, Radeon 8500, in anticipation of the 757 coming out.When I start Fly II, I get a flashing, rotating aircraft, with no scenary or runway. I am running the latest driver for the card. I have tried reinstalling Fly II, and all the patched with no success. I don't know much about editing the render.ini file. I did do a search and tried a few things - like running under Dx7. Only problem is when I do that, it starts up fine, but as soon as I click on the PMDG 777, the sim freezes and gives me a runtime exception message for WINRUN.CPP, line 152. When I do run DX8 or DX8 T&L, I can still switch "flashing aircraft" but the same error apprears only the line number referenced is line 168.I have also tried going back to some old drivers. When I go back to a driver from Feb, I can make it work, but the old Fly doesn't work (can't get to the custom vcf files).The new system is a P4 2.0a, 1 GB ddr ram, on a Gigabyte motherboard.Any help, would be most appreciated. I am dying to try the new 757 from PMDG.Thanks!!Rich Heite

Rich-we have had the most success using Nvidia-family graphics cards. If you could switch your Radeon graphics card for a GeForce, you'd get the best results.Otherwise, your best bet is the Fly! General Forum, as this is not a question regarding a PMDG product, but rather Fly!2 itself.(Sorry, none of us have a Radeon, otherwise we'd love to assist anyway!).

Lefteris,Buying another card at this time is not possible.I had posted the question here, and in the general FLY forum because so far no one there had responded. I don't normally spend too much time in there either - I usually come directly here to PMDG.Thanks,Rich Heite

Lefteris,A fine gentleman "Backseat Pilot" Kurt helped me out with a new render.ini file. I can even run high textures in D8x with no trouble.I'm going to load the 777 back in, makesure I can switch to that ok and head for the new 757.Hope the 757 will be worth all this - from what I've seen it sure looks it.Rich Heite
