Video Card question

Recommended Posts

Guest

I have a VPR matrix 2.66 cpu, 768mb DDR, Geforce 4 128 video card, 4.4.0.3 drivers, Directx 9.0. I was wondering how you guys get a card like this to produce a clean depiction of aircraft, scenery, etc. The screen shots that I have seen are spectacular with systems less powerfull than mine. My planes and mostly everything seem to have a lot of "jaggies" around the edges I guess I am asking how do I tweak this machine to produce an environment like the pics I have seen?thanks in advancepanther

The jaggies are fixed with Antialiasing (AA) and Anisotropic Filtering. Go to your desktop, and right click on it-click "Properties". Go to the "settings" tab on top, and then click "advanced". There, you should see a tab saying nVidia GF4 or something of that sort. Click that. Now, because you use a diffrent version drivers than me, you have to figure out where the AA settings are. Don't worry so much about anisotropic filtering for now. When you find the AA option, raise to 2X, Quincux, or 4X. The higher you set it, the lower your performance. I suggest going to 2X or Quincux and using a medium resolution in FS.EDIT: You might also want to experiment with diffrent drivers. Go to nVidia.com and download the latest. If your performace is slower get an older version. Also, what Windows are you using, and are all your sliders in FS maxed out?

settings? fs settings? what are your settings now? if you rummage thru this fourm you'll find lots of ideas. make a "baseline flight note the appearance and fps, then make small changes, re fly[ you did "save" that test flight, right?] keeping track of what works for your machine. tt
