DX10 Scenery Fixer is Amazing (AMD 13.9 and 13.10 Woes Fixed)

Recommended Posts

So, I was a little ###### off since I knew 13.9 and 13.10 categorically are broken with FSX.  Now comes Battlefield 4 and the only way the game will run on my machine (2x 6870HD) is with 13.10 beta 2.  So now I'm stuck.  I either have 13.4 and get FSX but no BF3, or 13.10 and get BF4 but not FSX.  Angered, I head off to work. 

 

I've been reading about the DX10 scenery fixer.  So I have been tinkering with DX10 now and then with Paul's documents, but eventually went back to DX9.  I found out this evening that DX10 in FSX works fine under Catalyst 13.9 or 13.10 (I'm using 13.10 Beta 2).  But ONLY DX10, not DX9.  Elated, I go off to fly.  I come to find many scenery objects and AI aircraft are just grey.  Doing some searching on AVSIM I found that the DX10 scenery fixer magically takes care of all this.  I was a little skeptical but many people reporting that it fixes many many things.  So I dropped the cash just now and lo and behold everything is great.

 

I have the best of all worlds now!

1.  BF4 and FSX now happy with the same catalyst version

2.  I am fully utilizing my crossfire setup in FSX with DX10 and the new catalyst drivers, after jacking up graphics, I get no loss from previous lower settings and load on both GPUs even about 75%

3.  DX10 brings along some pretty beautiful effects and a smoothness not seen in DX9

 

I just want to say thanks to all those taking the time to report what has/hasn't work and to Steve for the DX10 fixer and to Paul for his amazing DX10 guides.  This post is for all of you in my situation and I'm just doing my part to report results.

I have an AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series and just upgraded my driver to 13.152.0.0, which was recommended by CCC. I have the DX10 Scenery Fixer and have not noticed any problems. I have been running with this updated driver for 2 days. :unsure:

Yes, DX10 Fixer is a great product!  Many many many Kudos go out to Steve for his work.

 

Only issues I know about are transitions from Day to Dusk and Dawn to Day where some airport lights/signs/objects show up as black squares ... but this is a known issue and I think Steve is investigating on how to fix this also.  It's related to the time transition, if you start in Dusk or Dawn, you'll not see the problem ... only during the transition does it seem to manifest itself.

When you installed the catalyst 13.4 copy the atiumdag.dll from C:\Windows\System32 to your fsx Folder.

 

Then you can upgrade to Catalyst 13.10 and see FSX runs whit DX9 :-)

Hi Yorgos:

 

Would you copy your fsx.cfg, paste it somewhere, and then rename it as "Yorgos_fsx.txt", please, and then, using the "More Reply Options" at the lower-right corner of your reply, attach the renamed file to your new post, so that we can look at your fsx settings. The other thing you might do as well, is to correct your user profile pc settings to reflect the correct overclock - in one post you say it's running at 4.4-gig, yet your profile says only 4.0-gig. 

 

OK!

 

Thanks,
