Output FPS to text file?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm tweaking settings in .cfg, Nvidia Inspector and in-game, and I want to run some tests to see which way I should head to improve the experience.

 

I know I can monitor the instantaneous FPS using shift-z but is there a way of having each FPS reading outputted to a text file so I can crunch some numbers after the flight?  I've googled a bit and fraps looks likely but does this impose it's own load on the CPU/GPU too?

 

Thanks Paul

Have you tried FSXMark11?  There's a pinned topic in the AVSIM Hardware Forum where tests were done with various hardware and fsx settings to see which CPU/Video card ran the best.  I think you can also test various fsx.cfg's and display driver settings to see which is best for your computer. 

 

Best regards,

Jim
