NVidia Inspector Settings?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

Just made the move to XPX from FSX.

 

My cpu is an i7-960 @ 3.2, & the graphics card is an o/c GeForce 560 Ti with1mb.

 

What would be the most effective settings to use in NVidia Inspector to optimise the display?

 

Thanks,

 

Bernie

Bernie, welcome to X-Plane's land :-)

 

It's been written a few times that X-Plane 10 doesn't like NI, but the fact is that I am using it.

 

When in HDR Off I use:

 

 

 

With HDR and Atmospheric Scattering  On:

 

 

 

In the sim I have now disabled HDR again.  I have the following settings:

Thanks for that J.C.

 

I've already discovered that all eight cores are working away, but overall cpu usage doesn't seem to rise above 40%.  The graphics card on the other hand is pegged at 98% - 99%!  Think I know where my next upgrade is going to be!  

 

Are any NVidia cards recommended as being particularly effective for XPX?

Has anyone any idea how to stop the screen tearing effect? 

 

I have tried everything!

 

I have tried controling VSYNC via Nvidia Inspector. Ive set the option within x-plane to 'lock to refresh rate of monitor'.

 

I have a 60HZ monitor.

 

It's driving me insane!

Have you tried locking to half the refresh rate of your monitor? that is still 30 FPS.

Are you using the latest drivers? I don't know why but with latest drivers I had that problem and rolled back and problem solved, anyway I didn't notice any fps performance increase with latest drivers.

Thank you, I fixed it:)

Hi, I have this problem, tried the same thing with forcing Nvidia software to vsync (which mostly does the trick in other software) but i still get tearing.

 

Could you point me in the right direction please and tell me how you fixed your tearing issue?

 

Thanks

I used nvidia inspector, and I set 1/2 refresh rate and turned triple buffering off, and left the vsync as 'standard'/ 

 

Then in xplane I ticked to lock framerate to monitors refresh rate.

I've set vsync to 1/2 refresh rate in nvidia control panel, adaptive mode. Triple buffering off. In XP I have set "do not lock". Works like a charm.

Thanks flo and Ian for your suggestions. I still seem to be having screen tearing despite changing Nvidia Inspector to 'standard' and 1/2 refresh rate and then 'do not lock' within XP.

 

@Ian, i'm unfamiliar with Nvidia Inspector, do I have to do anything with the X-plane profile after pressing 'apply' key once I changed to the setting you mentioned?

 

@Flo, just wondering where 1/2 refresh rate is on Nvidia Control Panel? I see an option for VSync On but thats about it.

 

Thanks for the help both.

Sorry for beeing late with my answer: It's in the dropdown menu that appears when clicking the v-sync option. It's been there for a while now and should be working on all cards from GTX 5XX and higher.

Thanks for the info Flo. I have a MSI GT70 20D 'gaming laptop' with a GTX780M graphics card. Unfortunately I don't see the 'adaptive' option only 'ON' and 'OFF'. I searched for a reason why and it is apparently down to MSI having their own version of the Nvidia driver (or something like that) which based on an older driver. I have had issues with updating driver versions before where I was stuck with 304.490 driver until MSI finally decided to update to the latest version.

 

Oh well. Thanks for the help though.

Hi Flo

 

I have tried the settings you have suggested and I am pleased to say that I am experiencing the smoothest flight sim experience I ever have.

 

Thanks for the heads-up.


Regards

Still playing with my new graphics card, I am noticing (not like I didn't see it before) that there is an awful lot of shimmering going on, especially trees in the distance, to the point I am wondering how many objects in the game are mipp-mapped. I have started using 16x AA which is yielding me about 35 FPS over places Like Los Angeles and New York with extreme settings, but 16x seems a lot just to combat shimmer. (Did I mention its really bad?)

 

I'm wondering what other people are using for AA settings, and what are people considering a good framerate for this sim?? Am I the only one who thinks trees shimmer a lot?
