Departing AMS/ EHAM

Recommended Posts

After several weeks of tweaking now Im available to fly the Amsterdam again (no OOM, no CTD after 26 hours roster), so here is some of the picture while departing from Amsterdam bound for Buenos Aires :

Wow! What scenery are you using? I heard FTX looks really good and doesn't contribute to OOMs. And are you using the Nvidia tweaks posted over at the PMDG forums?

Thanks guys! Appreciate it.

 

 

What scenery did you use? How did you stop OOMS?

 

Im using Aeorosft EHAM, FTX Global (latest Lib) & ORBX Vector.

 

I suffer alot of OOM since few month and finally I decide to changes some config (fsx.cfg).

 

MicrosoftFixit50496

After using it, I noticed there are a bit improvement on the VAS used. Usually on heavy photoreal + addon scenery + FTX Global + ORBX Vector, I will get around 5.4-.5.5 GB VAS and when you push it without restart your FSX, you'll get the OOM. No matter what's your computer spec is. So I use the fix and I got a bit improvement.

 

Reduce the FSX Graphic settings

If you use 3rd party addon for the cloud texture, make sure you will avoid the 4096 texture, I use 2046 (REX OD) instead .

 

And of course, reduce your basic graphic settings, here is mine :

Deactivate any of unrelated scenery

Don't forget to  to turn off (deactivate) all unused sceneries in the FSX when not flying them. It will save some VAS. You can use the scenery config editor (download here).

 
Tweaking the fsx.cfg
There are alot of opinion, tutorial, etc how to do it, but I will just give you several important section here :
 
[GRAPHICS]
HIGHMEMFIX=1
TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=2048
[bufferPools]
UsePools=0
[Main]
FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION=0.15
[TERRAIN]
TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_TREES_PER_CELL=800
TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_BUILDINGS_PER_CELL=1500
LOD_RADIUS=5.500000 -> You can change it to 4.5 if you experience OOM
 
Basically this software uses functions built into Windows to judiciously free memory - with no performance impact. I always use it before start the preflight/ after landed and doing preflight for another flight. Simply click on the trim process and clear system cache.

Well that's it, I hope it help!
