Sick to death with FS9 probs

Recommended Posts

Hi there, like many of u i keep having performance probs with FS9, frame rates are crap and is now doin my head in.Today I have moved the sliders to the left a bit, installed my addon aircraft with dxt3 texture repaints instead and reduced traffic to 30%.The frame rates are still crap even with all this adjustment, and feel like tearing my hair out.Anyone got any suggestions?Kind RegardsGavin Moss

I agree with Jim, we need your system specs. What are " crap " frame rates? Did you de-frag after installing your add ons? What were your frame rates before you installed add-ons? We are willing to help, but we need more information.John M

1). Get MemStatus:http://www.programmersheaven.com/download/5759/download.aspx - to check how well your system and video memory is being managed; 2). I reckon you can use a better video card - the 5500 is a bit dated - and is already a low-end card anyway.3). There are a ton of tweaks for FS9 on this site. You need to do a search; compile a document with all you find, and then start applying them.Regards,
