try the lower res options! smmmoooothhhheeeerrr

Recommended Posts

Even on a good i7 laptop, I have had many stutters and pauses in the past....not anymore! due to the great performance manager that pmdg released, I have been running the lower res options for the displays, and eventhough they look a little bit less nice, they are smoother, I have boosted their perf. up on the FMS and now have enabled the FO displays when for when I want to play copilot.....I now can fly most areas with 30 locked by antilag (my new favorite) in the VC.And by the way... a little tip... getting rid of ALL the tweaks ever made, and just running FSX based on a default config has really helped me out!

The lower res textures gave me 2 more fps.. But I noticed that most of thatcame from the gauges.. So I run the high res cockpit textures, but only the lowres gauge textures. Not much change in looks, but I still get about 2 more fps.I assume a tad lower memory load too..

Uh, no. I want more detail and I'm running high res with all sliders to right.
