New GeForce FX 5700 Not Recognized In .cfg File

Recommended Posts

Halp!Installed my new GeForce 5700 with latest drivers and even though it shows under the "hardware" section in the "settings" area within MSFS2004, it does NOT show in the FS9.cfg file. It still shows my old card and I'm afraid that that's all it is recognizing so far as capabilities go.I don't notice any real improvements in frame rate at all, if any. Has anybody else experienced this? Is there a way to get it to show within the .cfg, or is it neccesary at all? I tried the little trick mentioned on the forum of substituting something like "drivers Win/XP" or some such thing, only to have the sim stutter and crash.Thanks people once again!Jeff aka MrMertz

YOu just remove all traces to the card from the FS9.cfg file, then reboot the sim.If you've tried that WinXP tip you probably have dual or treble entries for the ORIGINAL card - scroll all the way down the .cfg file and delete all of them before rebooting the sim. I also do this when applying new drivers as it's a matter of moments to re-set resolution and display preferences and guarantees the sim has picked up on the new card.Allcott
