Thanks a lot, tested NGX with stunning result. I was able to switch back and forth heavily without a single CTD! But later on I got one due to d3d9.dll while opening IVAP in full screen.

glad to hear it kinda worked for u as well.i cant really help you on the ivap issue since i dont fly online, but one thing i could suggest is to try other versions of d3dx9.dll.u can find quite a few in "C:\Windows\System32" just copy it to the fsx dir.

I've had ENB for some time and haven't had trouble with crashes when switching between windowed and full screen modes. Having said that, I seldom have to switch from full to window mode and vice versa because I set everything up before launching FSX or immediately after launching FSX, while FSX is still in windowed mode. Then I only have to go from windowed to full -- once. Occasionally I'll forget to start RC4 while in windowed mode (or, FSX will launch in full screen mode), and I'll be forced to do the back and forth that everyone seems to be doing. Even then, I have never had a crash or freeze of any kind. I may just have a fluke in my setup that corrects whatever bug is causing the crash, but I am curious why people do so much switching between windowed and full screen mode, as doing so seems to invite trouble. Reducing this behaviour (which can be done by being more efficient in the order in which you launch your flight session) may alleviate this problem while you wait for a true fix. Trevor

Unfortunately, this didn't work for me..
this maybe a stupid question but did u extract dll inside the rar to the fsx dir ?

i usually do takeoff and landing in fullscreen for performance reasons, but i like watching a movie or browse the web while in cruise.so i usually switch back and forth quite a few times during a flight.

Ouch! Hiss!!!!! It pains me to hear you say that. FSX behaves badly enough when it has the full attention of your CPU and other computer resources. You can't make it compete with other programs. Hahaha.

with AffinityMask=14 in my case fsx uses only 3 of the 4 cores, and about half the ram, that leaves more than enough cpu time for watching SD videos and browsing the web.

Yes I did..
to repeat (sorry for quoting myself).
but one thing i could suggest is to try other versions of d3dx9.dll.u can find quite a few in "C:\Windows\System32" just copy it to the fsx dir.
and to add to that, which ENB version are u using ? the one for GTA SA ?cause i use one for Richard Burns Rally. EDIT: and to add even more :) (if youre up for some filddling)these are the important sections of my enbseries.ini
[GLOBAL]UseEffect=1AlternativeDepth=1AllowAntialias=1BugFixMode=1SkipShaderOptimization=0QuadVertexBuffer=0EnableShaders_3_0=1UseMRTRendering=0

Maybe, but FSX is like a jealous overbearing wife. She's going to pitch a fit if she sees you spending time with other women, regardless of the fact that you spend plenty of time with her.

Well this is amazing!! Thanks for your help, it seems to have cured my problem so far after putting the D3D9X_43.dll I found in the system32 folder. Thank you so much!

Hi,I have always CTD trying to switch from windowed mode to full screen or viceversa, so I will try what suggested to see if that can solve the issue. With ENB i have another strange issue and i hope that someone is able to give me a possible solution.Normally I run FSX SP2 in full screen mode with two screens (I7 2600K - Nvidia GTX 470).I use the primary screen (1920x1080) with the main panel and the outside view and the secondary (1600x1200) to move there other panels like the overhead or the pedestal.I have installed the ENB and the issue I have is that when i press SHIFT-F12 the effect is activated only on the secondary screen and nothing changes on the primary.It is not a problem for me to have the effect only on one screen, but I would understand if it is possible to have it on the primary (and not on the secondary.Any help will be really appreciated.Thanks in advance and have good flightsJoe

UVW - could you please describe what is your 'noise' effect - sharpen I understand, but 'noise' I associate with 'interference' as in 'electronic noise', and not desirable. Many thanks,

yup, i suggest u just try it and see for yourself. it adds a little grain noise which u can enable/disable, just edit the file in notepad or any other text editorjust replace "#define ENOISE" at the top of the file with "//#define ENOISE"u can also change other effect parameters likefloat SharpeningAmount = 2.0;float NoiseAmount = 0.5;to get different results, and if u are not happy with these effects just delete the file. u can see some comparison shots with and without it herehttp://forum.avsim.n...series-upgrade/
Hi,..............I use the primary screen (1920x1080) with the main panel and the outside view and the secondary (1600x1200) to move there other panels like the overhead or the pedestal.

try checking that focus display in nvidia control panel is set to the monitor u want enb on.also try setting "UseEffect=1" in your enbseries.ini so the effect will start automatically.

Sadly I still get black screens returning to full screen mode.
That might be UIAutomationCore.dll related, not ENBSeries related. As far as I know, ENB causes CTDs, not black screens.

No, I've disabled the uiautomation files as well. Anything using the d3dx9.dll method such as ENB, antilag, and FXAA all cause black screens when returning to full screen from window mode.

What do you mean by disabling them? If you've removed the UIAutomationCore.dll from you FSX directory, there's your problem. There is no way to tell FSX to not use UIAutomationCore.dll. Every time you switch to windowed mode, the menu pops up, and that calls the dll.

I've removed the file from C:\windows\system32 and c:\windows\syswow64. Is that an incorrect procedure? I haven't removed anything from the FSX folder itself.

the black screens are fsx problem not enb or antilag.i've had them long before using any of these in fsx.and btw, every directx application is using the d3dx libraries.

it is as far as i know, all u have to do is place the dll from older vista windows in your fsx dir. since exe files first look for dll's in thier root dir, and only than go to the windows system dir.by removing it from the windows dir all together u may cause problems to other programs which actually need the newer file.i would revert back and just place the correct file in the fsx dir.
