Hmmm.... yeessssss .... it does go in the fsx.cfg ...... but you have to find out where... a clue -> it doesn't belong in the device display section.

Hi P.!

So, what do You think:

Is it ok now? I've changed also  the texture_max_load to 2048.

I've never seen two finer sections!  Perfect!

 

" I've changed also  the texture_max_load to 2048."   This is good, too, Ray. 2048 is probably the very best setting for normal use. I use 1024 only when diagnosing a stuttering or frame-rate problem.

 

All the Best!

Hi Paul,

 

I do wonder if you can help me out :) I've been playing around with your guide and Steve's DX10 Fixer this evening and have had both positive and some 'ok/negative' results. The sim is great however some performance is not great, as much as down to 9-7FPS.. Now this is happening mainly with the PMDG 777 testing at UK2000 Heathrow. I am using Orbx Scenery too.

 

I was hoping for some more FPS than this... :/

 

Here is my FSX.cfg and some Nvidia Inspector screenshots. I am using 2x AA on Steve's DX10 Fixer. I do appreciate your help... It's ok how it is but if I can just eek out a few more FPS I will be more than happy!

 

My system:

Intel i7 940 @ 2.93GHz

Nvidia GeForce 285

12GB RAM

Windows 7 64-bit

Hi there, Tristan; Welcome to the DX10 Club!

 

Well - here's your fsx.cfg, with a few changes - not many. I've added BufferPools at "0", and pulled a couple of more things back - like detailed clouds and distance: S. Complexity is back a notch as well: TML limited to 1024: FFTF lowered to 0.12; LOD from 4.5 back to 3.5, and that's about it - everything else looks fine. You'll pick up a few frames, but don't get too excited - at the moment you have a very slow processor, with a GTX 285 /1-gig - a pretty low-end combination. You should know, however - a great number of those 9xx series will hit 4.4 GHZ with water, so with a bit of work .... :smile:

 

Inspector... move the LOD bias(DX) to -0.500, as you're running 2x SGSS - other than that - it looks fine, too.

 

Try it out - and head back here if you feel it could be better!

 

All the Best,

 

pj

Thankyou for that Paul, only just getting round to it this evening. I have come across one little snag, with nVidia Inspector. It won't accept my -0.500 input for the LOD bias..I am putting it in the right section :) Just when I put it in and press apply changes it goes back to 0.. :/

Permissions? Ownership? I have no idea why one parameter might be disabled, Tristan.

 

Just to back up for a moment: you say "it wont accept my -0.500 input for the LOD Bias" - Are you typing this number in somewhere? 

 

Your "input" should be nothing more than highlighting the "Texture filtering - LOD Bias (DX)", putting the mouse pointer onto the little down-arrow thingy at the right end of the bar, then using the slider to scroll up or down to the -0.5000, placing the pointer on the -0.5000 so that it becomes selected, then moving the pointer away - over to the "Apply" button, and then pressing it.

Thanks to Paul, my sim is now AWESOME. But i have problem:

 

I use FSX and i get "FATAL ERROR" out of nowhere when flying longer on VATSIM. How can i prevent that? 

I have good specs, i5 4,1 ghz, GTX 770 Nvidia, i use bunch of stuff ORBX Vector, Global, Shade, REX4, ASN, AEROSOFT AIRBUS X... but when i fly longer i get fatal errors... do You have the same problems?

Absolutely agree with this post. My PMDG 777 looks absolutely breathtaking at Ultra High with ulta high scenery at DX10. From beacon to wing lights, to shadows and light bloom, runway lights, fog, clouds. 

Since I've switched to DX10 on FSX, my framerates have dramatically improved and I couldn't be more happy with my sim.


Here are my settings on DX10 if someone wants to try. They are as close to real as It can get .. for me.

And you're doing this on a 2.4 Ghz processor...?

I was wondering if I'd see a significant Performance Benefit on a 3.06ghz I7...?

 

But I guess if it helped at 2.4ghz, I just might have to give it a try!

Too late to reply but the link for default shader is down. Can someone reupload it?
