Microsoft Flight also had dynamic lighting, cockpit shadows, proper multithreading and was able to use your GPU efficiently to draw tons of autogen with little performance cost. There's absolutely nothing new in here. But I'm excited because my wish has been pretty much granted; FSX in Flight's engine.

The fact that you are speaking in past tense says a lot about MSFlight. It was a good sim tied to a really bad marketing scheme.

Looks nice but performance seems to be absolutely terrible...?

It will be relative to how far right you move the sliders and your computer I guess. I like eye candy, but have never lost sleep because I had to reduce certain settings a notch or two.

Got to agree with Jeroen. That video did more to lower my expectations than raise them. If I have to choose between frames and shadows... I go for the frames. So how much do all these new visuals cost in performance? I know it's early, but the testers haven't really said much other than state how nice the sim looks.

If P3D V2 performs as well as MS Flight does on my PC I'll be more than happy. So far the images I've seen look like MS Flight...no real advancement in quality but I'm okay with not having micro stutters like FSX.

As mentioned in another thread, blurries and constant stuttering obvious in the vid with a default plane and default scenery, which doesn't bode well for performance with addon planes and ORBX scenery for example.

 

Anyway, as always the proof will be in the pudding...

Jeroen, surely you know by now that you can't really judge any sim's performance based on a recorded video...

 

...given that the recording software itself is crippling the sim's performance! :wacko:

That is why all beta tester that have been released from their NDA should give all the info needed BEFORE peoples buy V2.0 and come back here asking why they (beta tester) did keep quiet about performance when questions were asked about it.

People will whine about performance (and everything else for that matter) regardless of how informed they are. Realism and performence will never add up - it will always be a compromise.

Good point, but V2.0 is not free, that's the difference, when paying for something I think that's giving you the right to whine, by knowing ahead of time about what you want to know about V2.0 from beta tester that give you an idea as to what you want to do with your money, same reason I did not buy XP-10 yet...feedback.

Alain, did Microsoft give you a free copy of FSX just because you had (presumably) bought and paid for FS9?

 

In the interests of "full disclosure" I myself did receive a "free copy" of FSX as a reward for being a faithful beta tester... B)

I'm not following you here, what does a free copy of anything as to do with my question?

 

I'm asking from V2.0 beta tester (the same one that their NDA was lifted) how are the performance of V2.0 compare to before, is the Nvidia Inspector 1/2 refresh Rate working in V2.0, any tearing of the image when enable....if you don't want to know before you buy I have no problem with that what so ever but I want to know, something wrong here?

Eddy,

 

Thanks for this video. Very, very helpful example of what P3Dv2 will be.

Alain, you must be such a joy to be around at the holiday dinner table... :lol: :rolleyes: Patience my friend.

 

As someone already mentioned, I'm actually hoping to eventually never need to fire up NI ever again.

Prepar3D V2 Beta: Volumetric Fog

 

Wow, FSGRW crew will be watering at the mouth at this video ... love how it blends with solid terrain/objects.

Hmm, just looked again at the video and compared to MSFlight fog.

MSFlight fog is way better and more performance.

More performance, but with what sort of fair judgement? The video of P3D was: 1. a beta  2. could be running on a computer that isn't powerful enough to run P3D well and record smooth video at the same time.

So far I haven't seen any videos showing settings and the fps counter...I wonder why!

Check out Dino C.'s Facebook page. He has some eval of FPS.
