Wow, FSX is nearly playable now with such hardware and drivers ;-)Seriously though, I installed these drivers last night and had a quick play with FSX and things were a lot smoother, prettier and subjectively faster than my last experience with this title. Now all I need is SSTSIM Concorde for FSX and FSXPassengers to come out and FSX could become a serious alternative to FS9 for me.Gary

Seems to me that you've somehow got FS9 looking almost as good as FSX with seemingly much higher framerates. Makes me wonder whether I should go back to the older version. Can you reveal what texture/graphics/weather add-ons you're using in FS9?Thanks,Tim

Thanks for this.From other threads here I wonder whether there might begin a bit of an exodus back to FS9, if it can be made to look this good.Tim

Double wow! I thought all your screenies were of FSX, but those last ones with the mega FPS turn out to be FS9. Impressive how you have produced FSX-like quality from our old favourite.Gary
