A Tale of Two CFG Files

Recommended Posts

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... ok, enough Dickens. I recently purchased the QW757, which I think is a great aircraft. After I installed it I went on a quest to find a bit more performance, which is always a bad idea. I ended up with a new cfg file after renaming the previous one in an attempt to start from scratch. I put that new one through Bojote's tuner, did some other little things here and there, and ended up butchering my frame rate. For example, on approach into KMKE rwy1 I was getting about 18 fps in moderate weather (cloudy with rain). My specs are as follows - i72600k at 4.5, 8GB, GTX 560 Ti, 1920 x something, 1 TB hard drive. I can bring that system down pretty quick if I load up NYC with full traffic, but for flying into KMKE with relatively modest conditions I was surprised. I saved that approach and went back and reloaded the old cfg file (which I had also put through Bojote's tuner), and my frame rate almost doubled. I started comparing the two and noticed that most of the same tweaks were there, except I had two (yes two!) bufferpools entries in the cfg that was much faster. I like to screw with FSX periodically to keep it on its toes (in reality I have no idea why I had two bufferpools entries that were set up differently). Everything else looked very similar. Given the huge discrepancy in terms of performance between the two cfg files, I thought I would post them here to see if there is an entry that might be helpful to community in terms of getting a bit more performance. I am sure there is one thing I missed that is making the difference, but if it helps someone else, great! Here they are: cfg that was very slow - / This file was tweaked on Sep 18, 2011 at 05:08 GMT using Bojote's automated FSX Tweaking & Tuning Service// Your 'original' fsx.CFG file was backed up at

Well, two items are different in the "fast" cfg than in the "slow" cfg: texture_bandwith_multi= 30; fast vs =10 slowfiber_frame_fraction=0.75 in fast; no fff statement in slow. I don't know if those differences actually account for the difference in frame-rate, but, they might.

This is likely the reason for the speed:-[bufferPools]UsePools=0PoolSize=83886080RejectThreshold=262144 TextureMaxLoad=30 // Use this when running unlimited frames, and this:-TextureMaxLoad=6 // when limiting frames. FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION=0.33 is the default number. 0.75 will likely cause stuttering. Move this down to something like 0.20 for smoother display. Scenerey will become progressively more blurry as you get down to 0.15 and below. Monitor: For the best resolution the setting here should be the same spec as that of the monitor: From the fast cfg:- .....................................//[DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti.0.1]Mode=1280x720x32 This gives a smaller screen than the slow cfg, and so uses less memory, - and should be able to display higher frame rates.

Paul,Nick at simforums posted that FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION is pre SP2, and would only benefit photoreal scenery. What is your thoughts on this ?

My thoughts are that if - using a saved test flight - an aircraft at 1000ft - 1500ft over KSEA with moderate - high settings using an i7-950 at 4.3 gig (my old rig) with an FFTF of 0.33 (default) one can expect stuttering. If one were to jump out of FSX, move the FFTF down to 0.15 - the sim will run fairly smooth at an fps of 23. This was my testing scenario of about 18 months ago. It was pretty much the same with the Cor2Duo at 3.4 gig with somewhat lower settings, so I'm satisfied that it does indeed work after SP2. I've played with it recently down as low as 0.08, but it causes the blurries to occur very quickly. (Photoreal?? I don't use - or even like - "photoreal" ground textures. Flat, barren, pale green.. Ugh. I bought MegaScenery SOCAL when it first came out, and I thought it quite awful. I like my houses and trees!)

Thanks Paul. Yes, I prefer houses and trees also. And I think a good mesh is better to have than photoreal. Thanks for your info. Btw, your advice on Bufferpools was great, and apreciate it. Now have a smooth running FSX.

Hey guys thanks for the responses! Here is a question... I've done my best to figure out exactly what the bufferpools tweak does, but my understanding is that if usepools=0 then the reject threshold and poolsize won't matter. What confused me about the two configs is that they both have usepools at 0. I think the difference had to something with the monitor setting being off... for some reason in the slow cfg I wasn't able to zoom out as much but the image quality in both was about the same. Paul, I'm with ya on the autogen. It adds a real sense of speed and depth on final and takeoff.

Funny that this is mentioned. I did the same thing over the weekend with mixed results so I went back to a saved config. Strange thing is many of my key assignments wen't back to default. I didn't realize it until I became a smoking crater at the end of a runway. I don't recall assignments being wiped when you create a new fsx.cfg. Are they saved somewhere else (besides the FSUIPC.ini) because I don't see them in the new one or the backup one?

In the right situations I can still bring the fps down under 10... anything mid range on the car traffic, heavy weather, decent addon plane, flying into New York (usually LGA) will usually do it. When I got this last computer I really tried to set up so I wouldn't have to worry about tweaking. So much for that I guess! I've been playing FS since I had 5 on a mac and have had a constant battle with pretty much every machine to get it set up right.
