FS2004 very strange video issues

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!! I recently changed computers and bought a high performance computer for FSX. However, I am still using my FS9 for most of my flying until FSX has sceneries and aircrafts that I will use.I have a ATI Raden x1300 graphics card and I've been having bad problems with video. Texures at night appear green and red, over the aircraft and on the ground. Textures are bad on the clouds and ground. I've tried different display settings with different levels in FS2004 and so far no good at all. Textures keep getting worse and worse.I tried downloading a new driver from ATI, no good at all.Any suggestions?Thanks!!!Teo

Teo,I have a lowly ati 9200se but I get very good results.There are soooo many combos that it is really hard to give a cookie cutter setup to anyone but having said that you can start off with a basic setup and work up from there.Open up your ATI control panel or Control center and set the following:On the 3D tab, check use custom settings, next clik custom button and then uncheck Anisotropic filtering then put the slider to 8xLeave the next box checked (Smoothvision)The next three are set as follows.Tecture Preference - PerformanceMipmap Detai - QualituVertical sync - Set Always OFF!!!Click apply.Now in Flight sim set the options as indicated in the three pics.Now go fly and report any difference. You can then start tweaking you fs9.cfg file but one thing at a time.Douglashttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/174230.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/174231.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/174232.jpg

I'm using the same ATI 1300 video card in a lesser machine, and I really like it.By any chance have you installed the latest release of Soft Horizon by John Cillis (if you haven't, you should try it!)? I've noticed that some of those textures are red and green, and when I realized that they were supposed to be that way due to fading sun light and sight line perspective, I realized how gorgeous they really were.Just a quick thought.Chuck

I haven't had the chance to check the settings you suggested. I have a ATI x1300 but it's from Connect3d. www.connect3d.com.I ended up buying another PCIe card from Nvidia. It's a 512MB one so it should improve a lot over the previous one. I will check how it works and let know.Thanks much,Teo
