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

Recommended Posts

That's funny; I use Ryan's settings, which are good btw, got me out of dx 10 mode as I did not know any better, I found my sweet spot in terms of IQ and perf being with the inspector guide to be the 270.xx drivers, the newer 275.xx, yield better perf, but IQ not as good. God only knows most likely placebo effect or my eyes playing tricks on me:)Edit, UK flight, make sure you re-type in the inspector values for FSX as other users have reported the values being removed once you update drivers. I don't know, but may explain your IQ issues?See this:http://forum.avsim.n...-nvidia-driver/

I did do that Simon - the results are not bad just not quite as crisp and clean. I did use the new version of NV inspector - maybe that was the reason. May try again in a while. Thx for the response - glad it is good for you.

No worries, seems like each driver set effects ppl's IQ slightly different; I guess we all run different set-ups etc...

HelloI traced all my dll crashes to 2x SupersamplingWhen off completely I have no crashes. Is there another setting I can use instead that would sharpen my textures?

That is presumably with the 8xSQ version - did you try the 8xS version with 4x supersampling?

Ryan - are you still using the 266.58 drivers? I have tried the 270.61 and using the settings at the head of this thread find my display is not as crisp so have reverted back. Of course if the 266.58 are good for the NGX then that is just dandy.
275.33 currently. I pretty much always use the latest ones because I play a lot of other games besides FS. They aren't changing anything specific to FSX - it's 6 years old and I doubt their driver engineers have touched anything related to it in a very long time. Always kinda makes me laugh when I see people saying that X new driver or old driver gave them some huge difference in FSX. That's never been true in my experience.

Yes and that is when I always had .dll error crashes with fsx acceleration
I don't get these kinds of crashes at all, sorry. What card do you have? (sign your name to your posts please as well)

Hi,Today I have bought a new Navida GTX 560Ti for my PC (Intel Core i5 760 and 8GB RAM). I have downloaded the latest drivers (I hope so) and testet it a few minutes in the default JFK with the default ultralight. And what I had got where below 10 fps. :( With the old ATI Readon 4650 it wasn't worse. This configuration guide will work for this card (560Ti) also, or?Some other tips for me?Best regardsJonathan Huschle

I have a strange issue with this, I extract the files and put them in a new folder (nothing else is in there but those 3 files) and the entire screen is gray (pic below). Nothing is clickable but the Donate via Paypal button.What am I doing wrong?241Untitled.jpg

Hi Ryan, With my GEForce 7900 GTX with driver 275.33 WHQL [r275_21-12] and Win7 Home Premium SP1, I used to get around 15 fps.However, I have recently had to re-load FSX with SP2 and SDK SP1A and get only around 4 fps! I have run Nvidia Inspector 1.95 using both the 8xS and 8xSQ modes but without a FPS improvement. Also, as soon as the SimConnect Diagnostic Output window opens, I receive the error box 'couatl.exe - System Error' with the text 'The program can't start because openal32.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.', although I am unsure whether this is a connected problem. I am unsure which program is issuing this message. Do you have an suggestions how to improve the FPS?Cheers,

Are you using any FSDT addons? Sometimes virus software will screw with couatl. Disabling it & reinstalling an addon that uses it (like an FSDT airport) may fix you up.

LAST UPDATE: 1/21/2011 DX10 WARNING - AA does NOT work in FSX's DX10 preview mode, it never has. You should not run in DX10 mode basically ever - it is slower and buggy.
Ryan, Following your sugestion, maybe I missed the answer for this question: Will I run PMDG 737 NGX in FSX without DX10 enabled ? Thnks sssilvabr

This is a very good little tutorial. I have read some and they just don't say what each setting actually does unlike this one, great job mate!Hug.gif

First of all, thanks Ryan for this guide and thanks everyone who participated with tips on how to best tune all settings! After reading through all the posts I have one question that I belive hasn't been asked before, when using the recommended (and superb) "tool" for fsx.cfg over at http://www.venetubo.com/fsx.html I'm adviced after running it... "MAKE SURE to disable Transparency Anti-aliasing for improved smoothness with your NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 card" ...while here the recommendation for Antialiasing - Transparency Supersampling is 4x Supersampling. Is this dependant on what gfx card you have (I have a GTX 480) maybe since the advice from the venetubo site clearly states GTX 480? I also wonder about the Anisotropic filtering mode, according to the initial post and recommendations this should be set to User-defined / Off and the Anisotropic filtering setting should be set to 16x but somewhere in the thread it was mentioned that it might in fact be better to set this to Application-controlled and then set the filtering (Trilinear or Anisotropic?) from within FSX? Then one last question, I'm always running FSX in windowed mode, regarding the Vertical Sync I understood that to avoid having the FPS drop a great deal from time to time it's a good thing to set this setting to OFF. Is it OK to do this from Nvidia Inspector or is it better to set it in fsx.cfg or maybe it doesn't matter where you set it? Thanks in advance guys!

Hi,I dont know if this is the correct forum to post this, but when I try Mr. Altuve´s FSX configurator I get this message: Your request could NOT be processed. Reason: The [DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460.0] section should be unique, there are two or more sections with this name.Is this something that I can easily correct in the cfg file?My FSX/NGX run just fine, I want to try and make it better :-)Thanks,Carlos

Carlos delete the line [DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460.0] there should only be one line, make sure you leave one entry and just delete any others with this description.
