Help with Frame Rates

Recommended Posts

Guest

hey guys!I have a p3 500 with 320MB of RAM and a TNT2/32MB...but regretfully all I'm getting is a slideshow :(I was wondering...can you give me some tips for improving my frame rates (currently avg is 5-7fps around KATL, scenery settings at minimums) ?I don't have any plans for upgrading my machine right now, that's why I'd love to hear any tips that would help me fly the 757 instead of waiting till year's end :(Thanks again, and btw...the few mins I was able to use the product were awesome...it rocks ;)-E

I did something with my Fly.ini file and I get like 30-35 FPS. I don't know what I did though, it was an accident. That's with clouds,rain and high detail. If you send me a copy of your INI I will compare it with mine and find out. The wierd thing is I didn't lose the quality. Before I was getting 11-17 FPS with max settings

Hi Pilot3729,I have been using an .ini file that I downloaded from the Fly General forum, which was edited by Gregg, a long time Flyer.I have a MX400 64 meg card and his init made think I had a far more powerful one, it does not necessarily increase the frame rates but it seems to smooth out the jerks.I think it is worth a try. But back-up your original .ini file just in case.regardsPaulairShadowFlag=2showDistantClouds=0flatShadeFlag=0filterFlag=1useAGPFlag=2gamePIXX=1024gamePIXY=768gameBitsPerPixel=32autoFullScreen=0useDirect3D=1ditherFlag=1useLensFlare=1numTextureSlots=0environmentMap=1rendererVideoCard=0textureDetailThreshold=2exteriorCamZoom=28672interiorCamZoom=28672useNightLights=3limitTaxiwayPavementDistance=0detailTileMinimumPixels=24detailTileAutoDisable=1popBuildingsIntoView=0popBuildingsTolerance=20desiredMinPossibleVisibility=100desiredMaxPossibleVisibility=316800rendererDLLPath=tridx8tl.dlltaxiwayTileRepeat=4highDetailRadius=3medDetailRadius=12animateWater=1minCameraZoom=8192maxCameraZoom=49152movieSizeX=256movieSizeY=192movieFPS=10maxUserVisibility=60useEnvLighting=1waterTransparency=32waterTilingDensity=8scatteredCloudCount=500fewCloudCount=248distanceHidingRadius=2sceneryDetailLevel=5enableNightLights=1viewableTaxiwayPavementDistance=50000viewableTaxiwayLightDistance=300000markingTotalFadeOutDistance=30380viewableTaxiwayHeight=100000viewableTaxiwayMarkingDistance=3000runwayLightFogPenetration=1000lightScalarDusk=50lightScalarDawn=50lightScalarDay=100lightScalarNight=25runwayLightDistanceFadeMinFeet=12152runwayLightDistanceFadeMaxFeet=30380runwayLightDistanceFadeMaxRatio=75lightIntensityStandard=0.500000lightIntensityCenterline=0.500000lightIntensityTouchdown=0.500000lightIntensityALSF=1.000000lightIntensityRAIL=2.000000lightIntensityVASI=3.000000lightIntensityREIL=3.000000lightIntensityTaxiway=0.060000userHeadPitch=-7showServiceNames=1showATCScrollingText=1forceLargeAirportsInList=1padComPort=2padBaudRate=9600padBits=8padParity=2padStopBits=0editorSliceBitsPerPixel=6OutBits=16OutRate=44100SpeakerCfg=STEREOUseModMusic=YEPSfxEnabled=65535MasterLVol=100MasterRVol=100SfxVol=100ModGameMusicVol=100MasterStereoSeperation=100ModSeperation=70WideStereo=0Mute=NOPEFullDuplexFlag=NOPEDeviceName=DirectSound:
