Hi, Fs2004 handle better the texture than fs2002, I never get blurry texture under the aircraft or near the aircraft, they are always updated. Only they appears from very far, But I don`t care, they are updated before just after and get the sens like real life at far that`s are never crystal clean ground.Normaly I get 25/30 fps, I lock to 20 fps, this help for updating faster the texture. Force the fps lock under your normal frame rate you have.Use the anasotropy 4x or 8xfs9.cfgTERRAIN_DEFAULT_RADIUS=9.500000TERRAIN_EXTENDED_RADIUS=4.50000Asus P4P800 8x 533/800fsb, Intel P4 2,53 ghz 533, Asus Gforce4 Ti 4200 8xhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/28069.jpgThanksChris Willis[link:fsw.simflight.com/FSWMenuFsSim.html]Clouds And Addons For MsFs

Chris I think it's not so much a problem of blurry text near or under the aircraft, but more a problem with the text when scrolling the kneeboard for example and other text in fs9.I get it too...P4 2,6 ATI Radeon 9700 Pro 512 MB RAM.

I'm getting pretty bad blurring, but it goes away if I turn AF on - unforunately I'm gonna need a system upgrade before I can do that without taking a massive framerate hit...Ryan

I have to add my two cents also, NO blurries. Had them in spades with FS2002 but NONE with FS9.I turned AF and AA off and get great performance now to boot.Can't say enough good stuff about FS9 so far, even the clouds now work better on my rig with AF and AA off.Running the new beta nVidia 4520 det drivers, much better than the 4403's i had before.Bob JohnsonKDEN

Dynamic Blurred Textures I'm happy to report that on my slow machine dynamic blurred textures are still present but they are *far* better than FS2002. Occasionally the surrounding textures will be blurred for a few seconds but they quickly snap back into normal resolution. In FS2002 the blurred textures may last for many tens of seconds or in some cases for minutes at a time. There is a new setting in the cfg file that should allow the user to find an optimum balance between dynamic blurred textures and frame rate performance, but I haven't tried it yet. It may be that FS automatically chose a value that suits my system quite well. Anyway, congratulations to Microsoft. This problem was a real curse for me in FS2002, but now the problem has almost gone away with this new version. Static Blurred Textures Unfortunately the middle and distant textures are noticeably more blurred than in FS2004. I think FS realised I have a computer that runs slower than a tortoise swimming in syrup and it chose very low settings (some of them are zero!) I probably won't experiment with the settings as I have a new system on order. Frame rates are acceptable but I wouldn't like to reduce performance by upping the texture resolution. Even with some blurring in the distance the views out of the window can be little short of spectacular. I criticise Microsoft when they fall short - but I'll praise them when they do a good job. For FS2004 I think a lot more praise than criticism is due! Best regards, Chris Wright P3 800 Mhz 256 Mb RAM, Geforce 1 32 Mb, Win 98SE

I'm very happy here as well. Much less problems with blurries than in FS2002. I notice them most if I keep changing views, but that is understandable as the simulator doesn't know which way to draw. ;) Over all, I am very pleased.Tony

Greetings Folks!Hey, this one is a bit counter-intuitive.In your options/settings/display settings, under the hardware tab, down the bottom, bump up the "global max texture size". Mine was set to low by default. Makes sense on my Athlon 950 system. Well, I cranked it all the way up to "massive" and all is well and clear as a bell. With little to no frame rate hit. THAT is strange. You can experiment with the setting, take a look at each notch as you slide that puppy up and down. To test, forget buildings and stuff, they are not important. Park yourself in front of a taxiway sign and adjust so you can actually read the sign without glasses, because that is the effect of the texture size being set to low.I too was going nutz playing with AA and MIP MAP levels. It's the texture size that is the culprit. At least in my machine.BC

>>fs9.cfg>TERRAIN_DEFAULT_RADIUS=9.500000>TERRAIN_EXTENDED_RADIUS=4.50000>Chris, you have the two above setting at these values as alot of others do from what I have seen but... When I opened my fs.cfg to see what the default was it was the following:TERRAIN_DEFAULT_RADIUS=0.000000TERRAIN_EXTENDED_RADIUS=0.000000HUH? They are both set at 0 for the default! Is this right? I was wondering that if they are at the default zero what is the sim doing with that setting? What does the new setting of 9.5 and 4.5 give us?Thanks!Mark

I got blurriness and the blocks of light colored textures on the ground. I have done all settings that Chris recommended but no help. I also changed the texture bandwidth to 400, its crisp from the ground to 25,000, then it looks like, before the horizon someone took an eraser and smudged the textures.And my settings are not maxed at all; the clouds seem to murder my system so I
