FSX blurry textures when landing

Recommended Posts

 

Has anyone had blurry textures when landing? Im having this issue since some time now, and I dont have any plan from what or where does it come from. I have a i7-3770k and a GTX660 and my fsx is tweaked pretty much that it should load terrain from far away already. Google didnt helped me either. I also thought about buying FTX global, maybe that helps, but that would be my last option.

Tweaking is your problem.  Did you see the new AVSIM FSX Configuration Guide?  Shows Fsx.cfg and NI settings.  The less tweaks employed the better the performance.  The "blurries" are caused by too high settings and/or bad tweaks.  You are putting too many demands on your system to render the scenery properly.

Applied the settings now, will test them on the next flight. What if it doesent work? Should I just delete my fsx.cfg and let FSX do a new one?

Not sure what you mean it not working?  If you have any tweaks in your Fsx.cfg, then it is probably not going to work properly.  If you do not know what tweaks you had added (or perhaps you got your tweaks from one of those automated websites), then you should save your current Fsx.cfg to fsx.orig, restart fsx, and let the config rebuild.  Then go in and set the settings as suggested in the AVSIM Guide.  The Fsx.cfg gets corrupted occasionally with a bunch of excess garbage and you need to remove it to let your sim 'breathe' a little.  Rebuilding the Fsx.cfg is said to be on the same level as reinstalling FSX and it has fixed a lot of problems.  Hope it works for you.  You have the system and it should.

 

Best regards,

Jim

In addition to Jim's suggestion to rolling back some sliders or numbers - make sure that (Settings->Display->Graphics) your Global Texture Resolution is full to the right (Very High), and also, if you have it in the fsx.cfg - that [Main] Fiber_Frame_Time_Fraction is not set too low. It's default is 0.33, and so set it there as a test.

So I deleted my fsx.cfg and let fsx build a new one and tweaked it with the tweaks from you afterwards. Well its a lot smoother now but the textures still dont load. Autogen is loaded pretty good and also addon airports load fast. Just cant get rid of those blurred default textures..

I've been trying to reduce blurries with a few fixed tests on my system. The biggest things that seem to make a difference are;

 

Fiber_Frame_Time_Fraction=0.15 - I have mine over 1. Your value of 0.15 is lower than FSX default and therefore you'll be taking resource away from loading texture, as I understand it. However, go too far and you'll get stutters.

TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT=40 - Try increasing this as well. It seemed to help my texture loading.

LOD_RADIUS=6.500000 - This may be too high - you say you've got it at a value to give you good textures into the distance but it may be that it's just asking too much of the system.

LENSFLARE=1 - Probably won't help for the little that it does.

You have 2 entries for your graphics card [DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 .0] & [DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 .1]. Get rid of the 2nd one and put the 1st one to 32 bit colour.

CLOUD_DRAW_DISTANCE=8 - Cloud draw distance is a killer for general FPS and texture loading. Try a lower value if you can.

I notice there is no entry for AffinityMask - add the following into your cfg:

[JOBSCHEDULER]

AffinityMask=xx

where xx is a decimal number of a binary that maps to the cores you want FSX to use. For example try 14 (binary 1110) to use cores 1, 2 and 3 on a quad core machine. I have Hyperthreading turned on and am trying out using 7 cores at the moment!
