My ideas on improving msfs 2004

Recommended Posts

My system is:P4, 2.53ghz, 1053ddr ram, 200 gig hd, ati 9700pro video card, on board sound card, soyo dragon ultra hard drive, NEC, MultiSync LCD 1850E Display at 75 hertz.I've spend a lot of time tweaking and taking suggestions I have finally found something that gives me smooth performance:ATI drivers - 3.6 cat.FSW clouds- they are really great and really helped my performanceAutogen resolution reduction file-on this flightsim file system- you can't tell the difference from the original files.FPS locked at 19- this gave me smooth operation into airports1024x768, 32 bit on display resolution:medium on my sound card performancebasic on sound card accel.60% on scenery meshTerrain tex. on highterrain detail on land onlywater effects lowcheck-dawn/dusk texture blendingcheck-extended terrain texturesspecial effects-highscenery - denseAutogen - NormalWeather-up full on all settingsHardware- check render to texture and transform and lightingFiltering - binlinearmip mapping - 5hardware rendered lights at - 8Global max texture - massiveIn fs9.config TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT=400Traffic at 50%I'm still running in window mode until ATI gets it's act together on new drivers but I'm running really smooth in all areas regardless of weather or airports.So after a rough start I'm getting awsome clearity on scenery and so I'm finally thinking I really may get into this sim.I have learned along time ago that every sys. is a little different so if any of this stuff I have done helps, well I'm happy for you.Capt.
