I've been using a tool by Kegety called D3D Antilag."Helps reduce input latency (mainly mouse lag) in Direct3D 9 games by limiting the amount of frames rendered ahead. Can also limit the framerate."Here is the download page:D3D antilag v1.01

I like this one a lot better than the FPS Limiter 0.2 one. It doesn't require you to launch the sim through an external bat file or anything. You just set the input latency part of it to 0 and use the other part to set the framerate.The one downside here is that you can't use this with the ENB Series HDR mod. They both use the same method of hooking the system's Direct3D library through a d3d9.dll in the FSX folder, so you can only run one at a time.

Ryan,I've been using the D3D antilag also and noticed that whatever frame rate I specify in the config file(e.g., 30), I get half of that in FSX when I undock any panel. Have you noticed that?Thanks,Stacey

Oops, i thought I heard about a payware limiter somewhere, and I thought it was this one here handed out free. Doh.gif

Yes that is the downfall to these fps limiters.JackColwill

I just installed this limiter, but I'm seeing no change at all. I installed both files (antilag.cfg and D3D9.dll) in the main FSX folder, so it's listed along with other .dll files, below the main folders (add on scenery, autogen, level-d, PMDG, etc). I changed the fps limit to 35, and have the render ahead limit at 1. Started FSX, made sure the frame rate slider is at "unlimited", but I'm still seeing default airport frame rates all over the place (default KDCA in a KingAir is 70, but jumping all over the place. And, I still get "stutters" when I take off and land. Any ideas how to fix this? Many thanks.

Hi,You can use ENB Series HDR mod and the Antilag FPS limiter at the same time by using the ENB series proxy facility: ENB series proxyJust rename the Antilag d3d9.dll to something like ad3d9.dll and include the following in your enbseries.ini file:EnableProxyLibrary=1ProxyLibrary=ad3d9.dllMaarten

Holy crap, I was not aware of that feature! Thanks!

That's strange, it should always work provided those two files are in the root. Set render ahead limit = 0 btw too, you don't need that feature, it's for dealing with mouse lag in first person shooter games.

Ryan,I seem to have it working now. I had to uncheck the "preview DirectX 10" box. Just tried the KDCA r/w 19 river visual approach, and it was much smoother. I can't wait to try that same approach in the NGX <HINT>

The limited is a Direct X 9 hook - that's what the "d3d9" in the dll name is. Definitely will not work in DX10.Btw everyone, that Proxy method does work - you can use ENB and the limiter at the same time - I tried it earlier and it worked great.

Does it still work after long flights? That seems to be when everyone had the CTD.

Hey all, I was using FPS Limiter .02 (whichever the one with the batch file)... After reading this thread, I have been experimenting with D3D Antilag... Whenever I switch from Full screen, to windowed, and back to full screen... All I get is a mouse cursor and a black full screen. Also, firefox does not seem to be usable while FSX is running. Is this user error or a byproduct of the limiter? Thanks in advance.Cheers!

Hi,If I remember well, the black screen issue can be resolved by setting DisablePreload=0 in FSX.CFG.Maarten

Not sure about that firefox issue you're talking about, but concerning the black screen only showing your mouse cursor, in that case all I have to do to get my FSX screen showing properly is to hit the 'Enter' button on the keyboard. Works every time for me.hope that solves your problem...

Antilag and ENB are working together using the above tweak... however, I remember having used ENB a year ago (I did not used it since then) and the difference between ENB ON & OFF seemed much more obvious when I tried it a year ago compare to today.... can this come from the fact that I am using a GTX580 with HDMI cable whereas I was using the GTX 285 with SVGA cable before ?Thanks
