FPS FSX Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Couple of question below about FPS and Performance for FSX.

 

1) Where will I get higher FPS - Windowed mode or FullScreen?

 

2) Does flying in a VC hurt my FPS?

 

Thanks!

Hi.

 

Every machine is different, but typically

 

1) Full Screen

2) VC will hurt the FPS. IMO, VC is a more real way to fly, but everyone has their own opinions.

I actually don't consider either of those "optional". I have to fly full screen, and I have to use the VC. Compromises are made elsewhere.

I get better performance in windowed mode. Framerates I never bother looking at.

Full screen ..some add-ons like EZDOK restrict you to windowed mode to use EZDOK Studio. #####? <_< I avoid them because windowed mode does not use Direct X hardware acceleration and gives degraded perrformance over fullscreen. :O

I use windowed mode too but this is the first time I've heard of not having Direct X hardware acceleration. What does that mean, practically speaking?

1) Depends on your system. I too get much better FPS in windowed mode.

 

2) Of course.

You only need the Ezdok Studio active when editing views, vibration effects, etc.

 

To others: Ezdok works perfectly in full screen.
