FSX going black after tweaking fsx.cfg

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow pilots, I recently obtained a copy of aerosofts airbus x and after installing it, I came to the realisation that I was a victim of the infamous 'skeleton-plane' problem. After doing some additional internet search, I encountered the texture fix utility of ******* Bojote, which I downloaded and tried. It ads a HIGHMEMFIX to the cfg file which would circumvent some problems. After tweaking the file, I reloaded FSX and unfortunately, when I hit the free flight screen, the animation of the chosen plane rotating is completely black. When I start the sim itself, the screen is completely black itself. You can understand that this problem freaks me out. I am pretty sure that the black screens are a result of the tweaks in the fsx.cfg file. I am operating under Win7 64xI have an NVidia GTS 240 GFX cardObvously I am running FSX.Is there someone here that has experienced the same issue or is there someone who can help me out? Please help me.Right now I am so desperate that I am considering a complete removal of FSX to reinstall it. (I don't want to as I have TONS of addons and WOAi traffic, IVAO add ons and stuff like that Worried.gif)Cheers, Dan

In case somebody wondered, this is how my fsx.cfg file looks like:

Why dont you just replace the modified cfg with the original cfg that you started with, assuming you still have a copy of it, then just add the highmemfix line to it afterwards.Or, if you didn't save a copy of your original cfg, just delete the one that is causing you problems and let FSX build a new one. However, you might want to make a back up of the current one, so that when FSX builds a new cfg, you can then just copy and paste the tweaks or adjustments that did work from the old one to the new one.BTW, you using the DX10 preview?

No, I don't use DS10 preview and I tried all of the things you suggested and they didn't quite work. I read elsewhere that removing FSX SP2 works to solve these issues, so I did and guess what, FSX is working again :) I'll try reinstalling SP2 to see whether that makes a difference, hehe.Cheers,
