Hi John,I wrote im my guide:

Limitation of the frame rate fps.

It doesn't make sense if the PC calculates and draws the screen content with a rate of 50 fps and more. That is simply a waste of valuable computing power. Hence it's better to limit the frame rate enabling the simulation to run smoother and with better image quality. We don't use the internal FPS limitation, because this function is a bit inefficient and consumes about 5 fps. We rather set the internal limiter to "infinite" and use an external FPS limiter from Marko Ludolph. You can download the file FPS_Limiter_0.2.rar and unpack it. Java should be installed on your computer to use this excellent limiter. You can move the directory FPS_Limiter_0.2 into the FSX-directory (e. g. C:\FSX). Then you start the user interface FPS_Limiter_GUI.jar. You accept the preset maximum fps of 30, select "Search Executable" and point to the FSX.exe file. Pushing "create bat" will create the batch file you need to start the FPS_Limiter_0.2 and the simulator FSX. You can increase and decrease the preset fps-limit on the fly using F12 and F11. You will find the file FPS_Limiter_0.2.rar with google. It is a small utility which needs no installation.

Thank you for the clear explanation. Is there a way to turn off the frame numbers on the screen's upper left?Regards,David Vega

Shift + Z
hm, can I close the DOS window or does it have to stay opened, showing the 2 lines using renderer xyz and starting ..fsx.exe?phil

Sorry, I misunderstood your question. Shift + Z is the switch of the FPS counter of the FSX.To turn off the frame numbers on the screen's upper left you should edit the file fsx.exe.limited.bat: Set the parameter /x:ON to /x:OFF. The DOS window has to stay open or minimized. You should only close it after you exited the FSX.

Do u extract the entire contents of the rar into main fsx folder, or do u extract fps limiter to its own folder and add it to fsx main folder, because Ive tried both ways and get an error and wont open. Once you create the fsx.exe.limited file where do u put it, and thats what u click on to start fsx? Because I get a command prompt to open and it sais starting... and then gives error?

Sorry, I don’t remember anymore. I have removed the external limiter from my system and from my guide. I am now using the internal FPS limiter with great success.
