HUGE HUGE favor to ask

Recommended Posts

Hello i was wondering if someone with a couple minutes of free time and some knowledge of cfg file would help me out and take a look at my config file to see if there are any major tweaks that should be put in.I realise that it is a huge favor, so If I dont get any responses ill understand lol.This would help me out so much as I have no knowledge of this type of stuff.A very big THANK YOU to anyone who responds to this.Here is my current cfg file:[PANELS]IMAGE_QUALITY=1UNITS_OF_MEASURE=0QUICKTIPS=0PANEL_MASKING=1PANEL_STRETCHING=1[Weather]WindshieldPrecipitationEffects=1MinGustTime=10MaxGustTime=500MinGustRampSpeed=1MaxGustRampSpeed=200MinVarTime=5MaxVarTime=50MinVarRampSpeed=10MaxVarRampSpeed=75TurbulenceScale=1.000000DefaultVisibility=0DynWx_MedianDewPointSpread=10.000000DynWx_ProbCloudFormForMedianDewPoint=0.000500DynWx_MaxDewPointSpread=50.000000DynWx_ProbCloudFormForMaxDewPoint=0.000125DynWx_ProbCloudFormForMinDewPoint=0.100000DynWx_DryTempLapsePer1000Meters=9.000000DynWx_ProbCloudFormForDryTempLapse=0.000500DynWx_MoistTempLapsePer1000Meters=3.300000DynWx_ProbCloudFormForMoistTempLapse=0.040000DynWx_MaxProbCloudChangePerMinute=0.040000DynWx_MultiplierForDynamicWeatherLevelMild=0.500000DynWx_MultiplierForDynamicWeatherLevelNormal=1.000000DynWx_MultiplierForDynamicWeatherLevelHigh=3.000000DynWx_MultiplierForDynamicWeatherLevelExtreme=10.000000DynWx_TempChangePercentageForOvercastClouds=0.750000DynWx_TempChangePercentageForMinDewPoint=0.700000DynWx_MaxTempChangePerMinute=0.060000WeatherServerAddress=fs2k.zone.comWeatherServerPort=80WeatherGraphDataInDialog=0DynamicWeather=2LOADWEATHER=1MAX_UNLIMITED_VIS=96560CLOUD_DRAW_DISTANCE=43D_CLOUD_PERCENT=20DETAILED_CLOUDS=1CLOUD_COVERAGE_DENSITY=6CloudsImpostorRingRadius=12800.000000[iNTERNATIONAL]ASLAT=2ASLON=1MEASURE=0[MISC]COM_RATE=7LOG_TIME=0FOREIGN_TRANSLATOR=0LOG_FILE=[sTARTUP]DEMO=0LOADSIM=1LOADWINDOW=1SHOW_OPENING_SCREEN=1STARTUP_DEMO=[GRAPHICS]FULL_SCREEN=1PERFORMANCE_MODE=0DEF_PERF_MODE=5TEXT_SCROLL=1AUTO_LOD=0DETAIL_TEXTURE=1WATER_EFFECTS=0TERRAIN_USE_VECTOR_MAP=1TERRAIN_USE_VECTOR_OBJECTS=1EFFECTS_QUALITY=1GROUND_SHADOWS=0SMOOTH_VIEW=1IMAGE_SMOOTHING=1TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=512COCKPIT_HIGH_LOD=1AIRCRAFT_SHADOWS=1LANDING_LIGHTS=1IMAGE_QUALITY=0TEXTURE_BLDG=1TEXTURE_GND=1TEXTURE_WATER=1AIRCRAFT_TEXTURE=1SEE_SELF=1TEXTURE_QUALITY=3LOD_TARGET_FPS=27NUM_LIGHTS=6[REALISM]INDASPD=0PFactor=0.000000Torque=0.000000GyroEffect=0.000000CrashTolerance=0.000000General=0.000000UnlimitedFuel=FalseTrueAirspeed=FalseAutoCoord=TrueRealMixture=TrueStressDamage=FalseGEffect=FalseManualLights=TrueGyroDrift=FalseCrashWithDyn=FalseCrashDetection=0[CONTROLS]KBDAIL=64KBDELEV=64KBDRUD=64PAN_RATE=400[uSERINTERFACE]MAP_ORIENTATION=2PAUSE_ON_LOST_FOCUS=0PROMPT_ON_EXIT=1SelectFlightLevel=0SelectFlightTitle=0PageID=3OpenATCOnCreate=0SITUATION=C:UsersGerryandKerriDocumentsFlight

OK, I'll bite. But you didn't post your system specs. CPU, memory, Video card???My system is a Q6600, 3GB RAM, nVidia 8600GTS and these are my settings...Mode=1024x768x32 <- Can you increase this to higher like 1280x960 16bit or something without too much stutter?UPPER_FRAMERATE_LIMIT=39 <- Make this 24 or UnlimitedTEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT=40 <- Make this 100TextureMaxLoad=10 <- Add this lineTERRAIN_ERROR_FACTOR=50.000000TERRAIN_MIN_DEM_AREA=10.000000TERRAIN_MAX_DEM_AREA=100.000000TERRAIN_MAX_VERTEX_LEVEL=19TERRAIN_TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=8TERRAIN_AUTOGEN_DENSITY=2TERRAIN_USE_GRADIENT_MAP=1TERRAIN_EXTENDED_TEXTURES=1TERRAIN_DEFAULT_RADIUS=0.000000 <- Make this 9.500000TERRAIN_EXTENDED_RADIUS=0.000000 <- Make this 4.500000TERRAIN_EXTENDED_LEVELS=1242424 <- Make this 4Don't use in-game Antialiasing. Use nHnancer or if you have ATI use the other, can't remember the tweaking program for ATI offhand.YMMV

Thank you very much for responding, ill give those a try to see what happens.My system is a (remember Im not very computer inclined :) )AMD64 athlonx2 1.7 ghz1024mbramnvidia GO6100 video card(I think thats what it is)Not a very good system but it runs fs9 somewhat smoothly.Any other tips to try and increase performance would help out alot. Im trying to get the most out of my system. A big thanks again

That pan rate one makes it so much better to use the VC. I changed all of the above and im not sure if it was suppose to improve performance but by changing the ones mentioned above(no idea what some of them do) I gained a good 6 fps.

Yes, the frame rate depends on many things. I'm not surprised.You will pick up more tweaks as time goes on. Just keep reading the forums and try this and that. Remember what you did from one thing to the next though so you can back them out. Some tweaks will degrade things depending on your system.

i think the biggest fps saver so far was the anti aliasing thing. I turned it in from the Nvidia manager.Anyone know what the diffrent settings are for anti aliasing, Ive got 2X, 2XQ(i think),4X, and i think one more.Thanks

As powerful as my system is, I can only run 4x as 8x causes too much of a drop in frame rate. There is probably a combination of other sliders that I could reduce to use 8x with satisfactory frame rates, but 4x is good enough with all sliders right. I'm happy.Dolph

Also change the following entries as well to the values I have shown below.They should help with keeping your building and ground textures more crisp and clear - and do so quicker.TEXTURE_BLDG=3TEXTURE_GND=5However, if you see it slowing your machine down any at all just drop the numbers down slightly.Thanks.Paul.
