i think i can explain the t&l.. disabling it is for cards that cant do it hardware based tso its done by software. this is slower so thats why u take a fps hit..enable hardware t&l and your video card takes over the task, which is much faster at it

Hi Chris,Thanks for everything you are doing."When you disable the AGP Texture Acceleration in the DirectX, your have fps increase depend on your system." This worked for me, also.Also I eliminated the flashing with the ATI 9700 pro card. I had the agp aperature size set at 128. By lowering it to 64, this eliminated all the flashing for me.Ed

Why run at only 2x FSAA ? You've got a pretty good setup there, why not make it look good ? Sure it's a bit of a hit to the frames, but thats the price of having it look like your airplane isnt a sawtoothed fuselage.. Just my 2 cents.. I run 4xS at 1600x1200x32bit and wouldnt want to go any lower..
