Best FSX tweak to get better FPS on the NGX

Recommended Posts

Lefteris taught ******* Altuve all he knows and Lefteris is the master for FSX IMO. His products are 'top draw' and he made available a fix that transformed my other computer and made FSX useable instead of a slide show, as it was before.Here is his file; http://forums.flight...turefix-v11zip/ You will benefit by using it.
I can´t see any diffr, against running http://www.venetubo.com/fsx.htmlHe also says ******* came up with this. The only thing Lefteris has done is making a program which canautomat this. But running the above link would be the same.HIGHMEMFIX are well known today, but the other fix below that I haven´t seen before. I have no probsso I wont add that one./ Leffe

What you mean buggy? Thats verbiage if you dont know exactly what you talking about.
If you follow the link in my earlier post you'll see that by forcing FSINN to exclude the use of particular AI models (and/or add-on models) to depict online traffic, you can restore lost FPS. Preventing FSINN from using add-on models makes obvious sense: a sky full of PMDG NGX models will be a demanding place for any CPU to handle. The AI models such as those which come with MyTraffic SHOULD not be a problem, because they ought to be very "light-weight" - and most of them are. Some, however, are not as "light-weight" as they should be. For some reason or another, some of them bring FSX to its knees. This is what I mean by "buggy". What makes them behave this way? I've no idea.Anyway, I have given the link to a solution ( http://board.vacc-sag.org/45/40957/ ) which works in my experience. You are the only one who can judge whether it works for you too.Tim

Tim,With ICAO tool, I never had addon aircraft showing up by fsinn. If someone iz ZZZZ or flying with callsing of company, which does not have that aircraft - I still get traffic model like MD-11 or something...Only hell knows, what kills our FPS LOL.gifAlex

There's another tool that matches installed aircraft with FSInn as well, called FSARF, available from code.google.com/p/fsarf/

some of he biggest frame killers are airline traffic, autogen, water, I use very few tweaks, the more you play with it the more obsesessed you get with it. A fast computer is the key!!!!!

I would have to say the single most effective tweak I've made is increasing my CPU multiplier from 34 to 47.

I remember that PMDG didn't want to admit there was a problem [highmemfix solved]. My friend tried constant times in forums to try and get a fix for skeletan airframes.It amazes me that someone like ******* could find something like that,honestly to me putting/descovering 'highmemfix' is as mad as putting into the config, 'makefsxminimum=40fps" or you know?! :( XD

Not sure if you lot are aware of this i guess so as some clever peeps in here..I was reading yesturday about this little friend that is sat in the FSX Config.. = Texture Bandwidth Multi= That my default is currently set to = 40 apparently i have read that try changing that to the figure of what your frames are currently locked at. I'e like myself i use a frame limiter and i have it set to 30. so i tried it and yeah there is a slight difference seems smoother in flight because it is linking the locked frames with the scenery and seems to load faster too.. regards Steve

HIGHMEMFIX=1 is a must have for the fsx.cfg. Forget that buffer threshold thingy. Snake oil at best. FPS performance killers in FSX are too much AI aircraft traffic, the ground traffic ( a REAL killer there), too high water settings, the fsx internal bloom setting, and autogen set too high. I find that the NGX is not any where near the performance hog that some say it is. I can fly into any payware airport of my choice that has been coded efficiently, as have most if the current market leaders like FT, FSDT and so on, with good enough performance, even in heavy weather. It is all about finding the sweet spot that fits your system. There will always be some trade off if you want to have some performance stretching setting. Although the hardware these days is now capable of taking a lot that you can throw at it, there is still a compromise to be met, particularly with set ups containing variables such UT, UTX, GEX, complex addon airports, REX HD textures and high settings for weather (cloud draw distances, high number of layers and so on). In such cases, the physical 4Gb memory limit for a 32 bit app is going to be reached. Nothing can repair that other than lowering settings. Andrew
