Thanks.What is the purpose of ALLOW__SHADER_30=1, and is it applicable in general to FSX Acceleration installs? I am using SceneryTech USA, UTX USA, GEX USA, and REX 2.0 with 2048 cloud textures. Also, my GPU is a BFG GTX 275 OC, if that makes any difference. I left out the TextureMaxLoad=30 value, and have left that to default to reduce the load on the GPU with the bufferpools turned off.

Why set your "AffinityMask=12" instead of "AffinityMask=14"?Your're only using 2 cores to run FSX??

Why a value for "PoolSize" if UsePools=0?What is "RejectThreshold?"
I would assume that's for testing. Doing it myself.If Pools=0 it doesn't read PoolSize then if Pools=1 it reads the PoolSizePierre

Correct. Think of UsePools as a toggle switch; UsePools=1 is "on", UsePools=0 is "off". The PoolSize=x line is just specifying the actual poolsize to be used.
Why set your "AffinityMask=12" instead of "AffinityMask=14"?Your're only using 2 cores to run FSX??
I believe this is to reduce thread collisions, which should minimize microstutters.

ALLOW_SHADER_30 simply allows FSX to make use of SM3.0 for Water Effects, because they are the only shaders compiled using SM3.0 everything else is either 2.0 or 1.1 This was a 'compatibility' or design decision I suppose. so, DONT USE if you have old hardware. SM3.0 is DX9c only.AffinityMask=12 yes, reduces thread collisions and FSX scales well up to 3 CPU. after that, you are wasting CPU cycles. There is no performance impact here, so don't worry. And remember, even though affinity mask=12 only makes two cores active (core2 and core3) you'll STILL have activity in CORE0 because the fiber system is NOT bound to the Affinity mask vale, so, even AffinityMask=12 will make use of 3 CORES's for FSXIn the 'BufferPools' section, I included ALL values for all situations, so the ONLY value you want to change there is UsePools (which is an ON/OFF switch)so, that way, you have the choice to either run with no BufferPools OR run with BufferPools, but using the most efficient way of doing so.As for what is RejectThrelshold, you'll need to search the forum for that to see my previous posts. Think of it as the 'Alternative' Holy Grail to BP=0

I would assume that's for testing. Doing it myself.If Pools=0 it doesn't read PoolSize then if Pools=1 it reads the PoolSizePierre
UsePools=0 will IGNORE PoolSize and RejectThresholdUsePools=1 will use a BufferPool with the size you specify in PoolSize

So with the latest DirectX update, and I7 920 @ 4.2Ghz, and a GTX 275 I should be able to use SM3.0?

SM3.0 is ancient news :) its supported by HW like since 2006 probably :) so, there is nothing 'revolutionary' about it.. don't get too excited, because FSX makes almost NO USE of SM3.0 95% of FSX shaders are compiled to 1.1 or 2.0. ALLOW_SHADER_30 wont change that UNLESS the shader was programmed to compile in SM_30, so far WATER EFFECTS when using MAX Water seem to be the only ones using SM3.0For 'testing' you can, for example do:ALLOW_SHADER_20=0ALLOW_SHADER_30=0That disables both SM2.0 and SM3.0 so only SM1.1 will work (Clouds and Terrain are SM1.1) this will allow you to appreciate the visual differences much easier.

Copy that, I use 2.x HIGH. Regardless, thank you so much for all of your time and dedication. FSX is running very fluidly with beautiful visuals thanks to your efforts, my hardware, and SceneryTech/UTX/GEX/REX/UT2.

With less and less to tweak, there will be more flying, so don't expect to see me often in the next weeks :) I just wasted so much time 'tweaking' I decided it was time to 'understand' fsx.cfg fully (including all of its options) so you guys can fly more :)Less Tweaking = More family time

a tbm of only 40?
Totally useless :) you are better of playing with TextureMaxLoadI explained that in the pinned topic post. You can raise it to 400 if it makes you feel better :) it wont change a thing UNLESS you lock your frames INSIDE FSX, then the multiplier WILL be applied.
Now if he could just find the magic 'piece' for fs9 as well :)
Well.. the magic 'piece' is FSX :) (even on low end hardware)the real problem is the 'investment' some people have made on FS9 add-ons. buying everything again is plain nuts. I got super mad with certain scenery design company because I had to purachse the same scenery TWICE! thats simply crazy, So I understand why people will stay with FS9.

*******, thanks for your FSX.CFG.Got a question about AFFINITY. Whatever affinity number I use, my Task Manager displays ALL CPU's checked off. Does that mean ALL are active? Should the number 12 only have the Task Manager display certain CPU's? Would appreciate an explanation.Thanks.Abe3.33 gigahertz Intel Core i7 975Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Service Pack 2 (build 3790)Board: ASUSTeK Computer INC.

No prob.And, the affinity mask will NOT make the CPU graphs go away ;) it justs instructs the application 'which' cores it is allowed to use. 12 tells FSX to use the last TWO cores, but a 'piece' of FSX remains in CORE0 regardless of the affinity mask you set, thats why it is recommended on QUAD CORE machines to use either 12 or 14 so you leave CORE0 free for the fiber system (terrain)You will also notice that either AffinityMask (12 or 14) will give your the exact same performance. Not even a single frame difference. Try running FSX with 8 cores and see what happens ;) it gets all choppy because there are too many threads working togheter, and they interact with fibers, which need to co-operatively multitask so the more COREs the more complexity and possiblity or 'stutters' or problems.

It's a Lenovo T500 (CoreDuo) I think running @ 2.2 The video card it has is intel's, and system RAM is 3GB running Win7 32-BitFSX runs great with the other fsx.cfg I posted for Dual Core machines (the second post) and it is using BP=0 safely and stable.

*******, you're going to find this AMUSING and maybe, I repeat, maybe, BENEFICIAL (lol).I replaced my 36KB FSX.CFG with your 7.5KB FSX.CFG............and it WORKED.......with only very minor confirm questions alterations. Your FSX.cfg ran practically comparable to mine. I was really suprised. Maybe when I have time, I put the FILES side by side and compare. Maybe I'll gain some insight. Of course, I already had some STUFF BORROWED from you (lol).Thanks again.Abe

Gday JesusBeen following threads about your tweaks with great interest, havent tried them yet but i'm about to give them a try.Only one question: at the top of your fsg config it says: Tick AA and AnisoFiltering inside FSX, set driver to application controlled.I'm presuming your tweaks don't involve using nHancer am i correct?Also when you say "set driver to application controlled" does this mean dont use any of the other settings in nVidia control panel regarding AA and AF?Cheers
