Frame rates with the 757

Recommended Posts

Hey guys...I just wanted to report I'm getting very low frames/studders in the 757. Doesn't matter what livery/engine type, It seems that I'll have good frames on the ground but when I get up into the air, they drop dramatically - 12,13 FPS. Thats not normal at all, usually they go up in the air...Lowered the refresh rates of the displays to 9, then to 6 but same problem. Look forward to hearing if any other reports exist.

Mike,I know it does not help you, but durring the testing I was getting constant FPS around the 22-24 mark (locked at 25).Norman and I are downloading the release files to see if anything was accidently changed or broken in making the installation package.

Oh man. It seems THIS is the norm for addons. I am in the middle of downloading and when complete will report what i get. If I dont get good fps I don't know why PSS hasnt resolved it because I am pretty much sure they aren't using a system as high end as mine which means they would have probably have had less fps and smoothness than my machine. Again i will not state anything or criticize until I test this bad boy.Jack

Thats fine Steven, I'm still playing around and the frames seem to jump a lot. I was on final with the 2d panel, and everything was perfect. If I look to either sides, without the side and forward VC views, the frames will be low. Then it'll start slowing down and now I'm at the turnoff and they've gone back to 10-12 frames. I've got no doubt if this is a problem others are experiencing, it'll be fixed. One last comment, while on final, my outside forward view seems to be off the horizon. It seems to be centered a little above the horizon making for a tough approach view. I've tried the Ctrl+Enter Ctrl+Backspace but those are too big a change. Any way to make smaller increasements/decreasements.Edit: I've been flying around and it seems I'm getting BETTER frames/smoother flying in the VC. Are you guys trying to make me use the VC now? hehe :(

Hey guys, Just wanted to give a helpful hint for anyone who feels like going through the tiny bit of trouble. In a previous post I was asking Norm about the VC. He mentioned to me about another post in the Airbus forum relating to "removing the VC". This is obviously an unsupported approach to getting rid of it, but, if your desperate, and don't mind using a hex editor, you'll gain an additional 10 frames. Anyways, check out the Airbus forum and find the thread relating to the VC. It pretty much explains what to do and is fairly simple to follow. Just make sure you back up any files! (And remember, UNSUPPORTED). This took my frames up from 19-20 (ASV6,SB3,FlyTampa) to 29-34 using the same software on the side. Hope this helps a few ppl.-Chase

Well,after waiting about 4 hours to download the 757,i finally load it in FS(after loading the default flight)and FPS are totally awful(so were the AA textures)....have no explanations since i'm getting 40+ and crystal clear textures with PMDG 744, LDS as well as PSS great 777.I uninstalled it,did a defrag and i'm in the process of redownloading...might not finish tonight though...I hope it was just a bug from downloading the first time...or it would suck quite a bit.Anyway,hopefully everything will be sorted out and we'll get to fly that very promising plane.BTW i have a 2.8 pentium, 1gb ram with a GeForce 7800 GT.Good luckRichard in CYHZ

Like I said, did a number on my computer until I got rid of the VC. (Though Norm, it was a good looking VC ;-))

Are you saying that getting rid of the VC solved the FPS problem?If it does,i really hope PSS decides to include that mod into the package to avoid the many posts and email they're going to get.I just find it very strange that with the PMDG and LDS VC the FPS don't kill the whole plane(and whole scenery for that matter) as much as the 757 does.Again,maybe it's a bug during the download process as i received some error message just as it was finishing the installation.Also,it kind of suck to have to remove all the liveries you don't want,as opposed to not install the ones you don't want...but my knowledge of programming and such is not vey high so i'm not sure how hard that was.Thanks for the reply.Richard

Jack,As I have said before, Norman and I are downloading the release files to see what is different. We are subject to the same download speeds as everyone else. 2 hours 30 minutes into the download/install process I am at file 5. As soon as we know something we will pass it on.

No problem Steven. I am not attacking it. Other than fps, the plane seems very nice so far.

Just to chime in, I am seeing the low/variable frame rates too. I have a 256 MB GeForce 6800 card, Centrino Pentium M 2.13 GHz, & 1 Gig Ram. The frames vary alot, I get 10 fps one second then 35-40 the next resulting in a very stuttery flight. Other than that it looks good...real good.John

I am also experiencing frame rates in high 20's until side views are activated, then drops to 9 -11 fps. System specs AM2 athlon64 4200+, 1 gig ram, 7800gt xp sp2. Otherwise outstanding.Pat

I don't understand it. I have adjusted different settings and am still getting 2-5 FPS I even turned traffic density from 34% to 2% and still no improvement on the framerate. I have a 2.8Ghz processor 1GB RAM and a Radeon 9800 pro. I know my system is not amazing but I certainly shouldn't be getting 2-5 FPS in every kind of view.~Matt Sorce

I found out that the fps problem occurs as soon as you open the VC for the first time... And if you look to the side, the VC is loaded. I have a frame drop from 20 fps (locked) to 8-10fps as soon as I do that. Afterwards, frames stay low even when I switch back to the 2D panel :(P4 3,4 GHz1,5 GByte RAMGeforce 7800GT 512 MB

I am getting a >5 FPS all the time, it sometimes jumps up to 7 real quick.I got a AMD 4000+, a ASUS Geforce N7800GT (256Mbyte) and 1 gig of Memory, I get around a 20fps drop when I load the 757, doesn't matter if I look in side views or in the vc, it just never goes up.I've lowered my update speed for the EFIS things to 6, it gave me a 1fps boost. from 2-3 fps to 3-4 fps.I really hope there is something wrong with the install base file, if it's not I have to say that this is unflyable for me. I'll try a re-install later though

I dont have the proper file name to hand but please check that you dont have a dll in your modules folder that has a name something like tcas.dllIm unable to test the release installation for a few hours (nipped into an Internet caf

Hello,First of all this is a heavy fil you are installing, so I would suggest defragment your hard drive before and after installation, this is what I do, every time I install some thing. For info I use Diskeeper for this as the internal fs defrag system is crap.Second, check that you DO NOT HAVE in your module folder a DLL called: DSD_XML_tcas.dllDuring 777 beta test, I have suffered a very important loss of frame rate as of this.Hope this helps.PS I have just finished installing the public files and this DLL was not installed on the module folder.Cyrille de LattreAsus P4P800/PIV 3 Ghz/2 Giga DDRAMATI X800 GT 256 MegWin XP SP2 / FS9.1 PSS Beta tester

Norman,Don't have the dll, as above, lowering refresh didn't help things much. Activating any side view results in a permanent drop in observed FPS, in my case, down from 20 to between 4 and 8, occasionally up to 12, which causes considerable stutters, heavily imparing manual approaches. Hope you guys are able to narrow it down to a bug somewhere.
