FS2004 Scenery and Flashing Areas

Recommended Posts

Guest flyingjock1

Hi FolksApologies if this is the wrong forum and if this question has already has been asked before but here goes. I recently updated to the new 9.1 patch and noticed a slight improvement in my frame rates.What i am seeing and have seen in the past is say for example i am flying in a particular direction. I move from an interior view towards and exterior one and the scenery tile below flashes a sort of rusty brown colour before the landclass catches up and it appears. During the flashing the trees etc are visible.As i said apologies if this has been asked b4. Your help in this matter is appreciated.Tomps this happens when flying from all over the world and the problem is not specific to one particular airport.

If you didn't see this prior to the update, then open the Flight Simulator 9 folder and rename display.cfg to display.NEW. Open the Flight Simulator 9BACKUP folder, copy the display.xxx.cfg file, place the copy in the Flight Simulator 9 folder, rename this file display.cfg. Restart the flight simulator and see if the problem is corrected. If so, continue to use the older display.cfg file. You could also review any changes between the new and old display.cfg file for your graphics adapter.If you see no improvement, delete display.cfg, rename display.NEW to display.cfg. Next run the directx diagnostic, press Start, Run..., type dxdiag, OK. Let the diagnostic stabilize, ensure you are using DirectX9.0b or 9.0c. Select the Display tab, ensure DirectDraw, Direct3D, and AGP Accelerations are enabled. If any are grayed-out, install or reinstall updated motherboard controller chip drivers, i.e., Intel, VIA, SiS, AMD, ALi, NForce. Run the DirectDraw and Direct3D tests and note any errors.Rename your fs9.cfg file to fs9.OLD. Restart the flight simulator, let it stabilize, and see if the problem is corrected. If so, make changes for your preferences to the new fs9.cfg file. If not, delete the new fs9.cfg file and rename fs9.OLD to fs9.cfg.Uninstall and install updated drivers for your graphics adapter.W.
