Nvidia configuration guide (Inspector + 2xx.xx drivers) version 2.0 + explanations of all settings

Recommended Posts

RyanThanks for your reponse much appreciated,Now to the last questionWhat is the relationship of nvidia inspector to the nvidia control panel downloaded with the driver?If you open the NVCP after setting your card up in NV Inspector does it change anything especially if the settings in the NVCP are different to those in NV Inspector??When you install a new driver (now with the option of preserving previous settings) do you need to run NV Inspeector to 'refresh' your settings?Thanks again for a great post.RegardsPeterH
Peter,This is what I was getting at in the section that explains what Inspector actually is. Both Inspector and the NVCP are just ways of editing the driver's application profiles. If you change something in one, you'll see that change reflected in the other - try it. Inspector just lets you make some changes that aren't available in the NVCP. Think of it as an "advanced mode" for the NVCP.You should probably double check Inspector after a new driver install, but it shouldn't wipe the profiles as long as you don't do the Advanced install with Clean Install option (that performs a Driver Sweeper style scrub of all the files and registry entries related to the driver).

hello tabs, thank you for your efforts!after some tuning i have now 10fps more.i have a smilar sytem (i7950@4ghz, gtx580, 12gb ddr3). did you enable bufferpools=0 in your cfg file? or do you have any other changes expect for the highmemfix in your fsx.cfg? do you have performance increase with HT off?thank youMichaelKnittl


best regards,

Anyone know off hand, do these new drivers and the interface work with the 200 series cards, or only the 400 and/or 500?Thanks.

RyanMany thanks I now make sure that my settings in the nvidia CP global and fsx are the same as in in nvidia inspector and I can see from your info how they interrelate.To realsimpilotthe latest drivers and the latest version of nvidia inspector all work with the GTX 2xx series as well as the 4xx and 5xx series. I have a GTX 260 running FSX very well with the new 266.xx drivers and nvidia Inspector v 1.9x.RegardsPeterH

Any card that works with the 2xx.xx series driver will work. I'd assume almost anyone running FSX seriously has at least an 8800 series card, and most of these settings should be available even that far back. Start getting older than that and some of these features/modes probably aren't supported by the hardware.

I think you might be misunderstanding still - you actually don't even need to touch the NVCP and you definitely don't need to touch the global profile. If you set the global profile to these settings it's going to apply them to ANY application/game that uses your video card, not just FS. My own global profile is left at the Nvidia defaults - most other games besides FS allow you to set specific video card settings right inside the game rather than through the driver.

I can only add, that 8xS version doesn't work with my GTX275 (only edges are anti aliased), and with 8xSQ I have huge impact on frame rates and whole cockpit is anti aliased so much, that my eyes can't stand it for longer than 5 minutes ;) Btw, I will probably switch to AMD6970 soon, so maybe I'll be the one of the few to test FSX with it and it's AA modes (yeah, I know it lacks combined ones, but they don't work with my NVIDIA either, so I got used to it already).Ryan, I know it's not best place to ask it, but will NGX displays require anti aliasing, like J41 does?

One of the PMDG programmers has a GTX275 and this stuff works fine for him - sounds like you've got something messed up with the driver somehow. I'd recommend uninstalling and then using Driver Sweeper http://phyxion.net/Downloads/Driver-Sweeper/2-8-5/ to make sure it's fully uninstalled. Then install the latest ones clean.I'm not sure what you mean about the J41 displays - AA doesn't touch the displays themselves, EFIS display stuff like that is all done with a totally different graphics API called GDI+ and the fonts/lines etc are antialiased by default. Nothing "requires" AA in any game, it just improves the image quality.

Exactly I mean EADI and EHSI:8x Multi-sampling only:http://ifotos.pl/img/2011-1-27_hhhprsa.jpg8xQ version:http://ifotos.pl/img...-27_hhhprsq.jpg8xSQ version:http://ifotos.pl/zob...-27_hhhprap.jpgNow comparing 8xQ vs 8xMS screenshots, I can see some AA on displays in 8xQ, it's just almost unnoticeable in-game. But still because of missing lines, EADI and EHSI are very hard to read in some cases without 8xSQ, when high definition displays are enabled in J41 Cofig Manager.

Hello everybody,I can confirm that the reading of the instruments inside the 3d cockpit of the BAe is very difficult. For Ryan do we have any chance to have the same popup's system like the MD-11 for this great a/c ?Thanks in advance for your information's.Best Regards

To Ryan Maziarz: Thanks for the information and the suggestion about turning off overscan on my television. Unfortunately, I have been trying to find how to turn overscan off on my particular TV (52XBR-9) without much success. I have been searching around the internet for information on my problem, and it appears from a number of posts on the Nvidia and Evga websites that I am not alone. The problem, however, seems to pop up when you use a DVI to HDMI converter on an Nvidia video card. A have a fairly new GTX 580 installed which also has a mini-HDMI port. I'm going to get a mini-HDMI to HDMI cable tomorrow, and hopefully this will solve the problem. Thanks again for providing such useful information. Mike Gutierrez. North Hollywood, California.

What resolution do you run FSX at?

Hi, a question on this...I've got the latest nVidia Inspector, using these settings, and the 260.99 drivers with a GTS 450 1GB, running with FSX w/Acceleration, and I'm not seeing any AA or AF at all when I run (in windowed mode 1680x1050). I have the internal FSX AA turned off and filtering set to Trilinear. Does nVidia Inspector have to keep running in the background while FSX is active, like nHancer did, or are the profile changes permanent and "sticky" so they only have to be made once?
