Massive Frame collapses

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

 

I´m new here and I´d like to ask for your help for a very annoying problem with the FSX.

 

This morning, I wanted to fly with the CS777 from Hongkong (default scenery) to Heathrow (UK2000). Normally, I get 30 FPS in Hongkong (with the CS normally 18-20 FPS), but this morning, I was shocked. First of all 25 FPS (very good for the 777), but THEN just 4 and even 2 FPS. But after a few seconds, the FPS have increased to 20 again. However, after a few seconds, they fell to 3-6 and so on.

 

I tested it with another aircraft (Thomas Ruth´s A340-600 - normally 30 to 45 FPS) and I had the same problem.

 

I scaled down graphic-settings to their absolute minimum and nothing has changed.

 

I hope you can help me, because I can´t explain the problem to myself.

Hi,

 

Video drivers changed?

 

Anti-virus running?

 

Running FSX after a fresh re-boot of the computer?

 

Any other changes to your system?

First off, welcome to the forums!

 

Have you applied any tweaks to the 'fsx.cfg'?

How would that cause his framerates to suddenly drop?

The only thing I can think of is the old standard: Delete your FSX cfg and start from there. Not being critical here, but you are a little light on juice both CPU & GPU wise, considering the beast (FSX) you are trying to tame. Sorry I can't be of more help.

 

Good luck,

Has everyone read the first post where the OP states his performance was fine and now all of a sudden has turned to crap? And so he is looking for possible solutions to what may have caused his sudden lack of FPS.

 

It's not like he had crap and is looking for a boost.

 

At least Rodd and FloG understand.

looks like something is using your CPU in the background.

Like Jim said it could be antivirus running a scan or auto defrag.very hard to pin down without knowing what you are running in the background.

myself i open the taskbar and stop every process FSX doesn't need IE:

internet download manager,acronis  and any king of updater... anything that could start running while FSX is active.

You also check your inspector setting, under power management mode and be sure to use maximum performance and not adaptive
