FS9 AA

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

 I use FSX more often than FS9 , but now planning on using the Project Airbus A380 is FS9 as she is beautiful. And in FSX the VC looses fps.

 

 The problem is AA is FS9. I have Nvidia Inspector set to 32x but I still see the jagged lines. The other thing is I have seen some sharp textures in FS9 with a search on the net. How can I have those. Also please recommend europe sceneries freeware or payware. I have Nl2000 but need the other countries too,

 

APOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE IF THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN DISCUSSED.

 

Thnx.

Hi,

32x AA is extremely high and will kill your fps. 

It sounds like Inspector is not applying the AA you've selected.

For the AA setting, did you pick "override any application settings" and AA disabled in FS9?

 

For the Europe scenery... Are you looking for specific regions, cities, etc?

 

Ground Environment Pro will replace the default land textures with much better ones, but it will do so globally.

Ultimate Terrain Europe will give you landclass, roads, shore lines, lakes, rivers, 3d night lighting, etc (do a search on Flight1's website for more detail).

 

If you want to focus on Europe, I highly recommend those two add ons, even though GEP is a global coverage (and that's a very good thing).

 

Installing GEP and UTE gives you a base to build other add ons to.  

 

For sceneries, check out aerosoft's online shop, simmarket, flytampa, etc.  You can find airport add ons, and small to large coverage sceneries.

Hey thanks for the reply.  As to the fps hit it above 25 with 32x AA.  I will uncheck AA in FS9 and try. right now in a flight but will check it and reply back and also check the Nvidia Inspector.

 

Great then UT and GE should work well for me. No Specific cities. Just want full of Europe as I fly there most of the time.

 

report back with changes. stdby

For payware in the UK you must have UK2000 scenery.

Steve

 

 

Is that Heathrow ?

 

I am still struggling with AA on this one. Once I have setup well I will look check UK2000.

That's strange.  You are saving your settings before exiting NI, right?  Make sure you're using the MS FS9 profile in NI and not the global one.

Set up NI like this (Use the FS9 profile instead of the FSX profile - you use the exact same settings for both sims):

Set up FS9 like this:

And remeber to uncheck AA in FS9 and select triliniear filtering.

 

 

But dude, you can't fly an Airbus! Flight 666 is a Boeing 757! :D

If you're using the HD 7750 graphics card thats in your "MY PC" info, then of course Nvidia Inspector will do NOTHING for your graphics... duuh.

 

You need to use the correct software for AMD cards, i.e. Catalyst control center, I think it's called, to change your AA settings.

That's because the AA setting is actually quite high.  You can gain more fps by using less AA.  Any setting that has SS (supersampling), will have a greater impact on fps.  Try 8x MS only (multi sampling).  Won't look as good, but you'll get better frames.

I put textbandwidthmulti back to 40 as in the site it was saying 240 , so after putting 40 my fps has gone up and yes I have reduced AA to 4x.  will Try some more after coming back from work today.

 

After putting those settings earlier FS9 was looking freaking awesome at least the airport.

How can I reset Nvidia Inspector.  I have put AA down and everything in NI low and in FS9 everthing is maxed out and the max fps I am getting is 15 crap. Also recreated the fs9.cfg.

 

 Please help,

Hmmm, not sure what's going on there.  NI shouldn't hit your fps that hard with lower settings.  Looking at your PC specs, your fps should be MUCH higher.

I'll do a screen grab of my NI settings and post it here.  Just have to finish a few things first.  Hang on.

:) This is on my laptop and not my sig rig.

 

The laptops a Toshiba Satellite L755 and i5 2430m with 1 GB GT525m.

 

The FPS hit was due to a freeware scenery.

 

BUT PLEASE DO THE SCREEN GRAB POST YOU NI SETTINGS.

Ok, didn't know it was for your laptop.  When you said you're using 4x, is it multisampling (MS) or Supersampling (SS)?  There is a big difference in fps between the two.  MS being much better on fps but not as sharp as SS.

 

To reset your settings, click on the setting (ex. "Antialiasing Setting").  It should be highlighted in blue, and if you look all the way to the right, you will see a small nvidia icon.  Click on that if you want to reset certain ones.

 

To do a complete reset, click on the green nvidia icon located along the top with the other icons.

 

If you're using REX clouds, you can lower the cloud resolution and select a form of compression.  Really helps with fps because aa in heavy clouds will bring down fps.

Hey thanks.

 

It Supersampling.

 

Let me revert back to you with the changes.

 

Thanks,

ironmaiden are you flying FS9 in Windowed mode or Full Screen?

 

Anti Aliasing etc doesn't work in Windowed mode and FPS is often less too.
