On DX10 - whow, what a better look :-)

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I decided to jump into the DX10 World.

 

Searching across this forum certainly helped, and Jim's PM even more - thanks a LOT Jim!

 

I am now enjoying the benefits and Whows!!! of running FSX Gold under DX10 compat mode. It really makes a difference !!!

 

So far no problems with textures, other than the Aerosoft Megaairports Heathrow, which I promptly uninstalled because the default one that comes with FSx Gold is more than sufficient to keep me satisfied :-)  Madeira and Lukla, also from Aerosoft, are fully compatible and I kept them.

 

I have just a couple of add-on aircraft and a weather injection program so, no incompatibilities and smooth / crisp graphics, outside and inside cockpit are "my reward" for having given DX10 compatibility mode a fair try!

 

Nvidia Inspector and the Shadders patch recommended in the document found in this forum, plus a rw lighting fix were all I needed to get it running.

 

My FSX Gold is almost fully maxed out (less traffic, which is not nilled but is on the 10%-20% levels.

 

I have to express, again, my gratitude to AVSIM for being such a great source of information, on various simulation platforms. Just as with X-Plane10, I was able to get great recommendations from both the contributions of many forum members and their pinned articles always full of interesting and well organized information!

 

 


Don't know, but to me MFS looks a lot like the "Barbie" of desktop flight simulation...

Doesn't matter - I like to play with Barbies...

+1,

 

and makes all those arguments (oom's, ctd's, blurries, autogen popping) to switch to Xplane a thing of the past. For those with huge investments in FSX, this gives new life, and extends it's future. Does 64 bit Xplane run a bit smoother, sure, but it offers half the simulator functionality. With the DX10 version of FSX, most, if not all of the DX9 problems are gone. DX10 runs smoother, looks better, and most of all doesn't crash, neither version ever did for me though. Just need to get the addon airport lighting issues sorted out, soon I hope.

@z06z33 - Try SweetFX instead of ENB - it will make an enormous difference to FSX, in colour, brightness, shadowing, vibrance, bloom.

 

I cannot tell you enough, how much icing this has put on the cake, with my personal switch to DX10.

 

Thanks for posting your specs, too, and note - you might move the clock speed up to 4.5, as that will be a good match for your 560Ti GPU.

Here's a good site, (Tom's) with a link inside to an excellent o/c guide for that proc series.

 

All the best,

All the best,

I'd also like to add my gratitude for all the help I found in here...my transition to DX10 has not always been a smooth one, mostly due to my lack of patience....but there is a wealth of accumulated knowledge here if you look for it :-)

 

Hay paul...I've been messing with Sweet FX but havn't quiet found the sweet spot yet...I realize the right ' look' of any sim is highly subjective, but if you get a chance I'd love to see your settings!

 

cheers

Agree 100%. Honestly, the advantages of XP10 over FSX Gold + DX10 are simply put, a Urban Mith... NAd believe me, it's painful for me to have to accept it :-/  Anyway, I feel back at home now :-)

 

 

I can, even if only using default scenery (plus Aerosoft LPMA and Lukla) fly everywhere in the World and see an hint of airport buildings, credible autogen, etc... The Weather, specially using the weather injector I am testing, looks way better than anything XP10 can offer right now.

I think with quad core or more it helps from other reports, On my system though, which is only a C2D it actually hurts frame rate.

Thanks

Lots of great DX10 fixes here ... if you aren't on DX10, you really should be ... there are still some issues, BUT I prefer the performance and look of DX10 and you'll be able to do more 3rd party with DX10 as you can push out the OOM barrier a little further.  Customers and 3rd party still need 64bit, but the DX10 fixes help extend the life of FSX.
