Low frame rates

Recommended Posts

 My frame rates bounce around any where from 3 to 25. On a flight with any duration everything will freeze for 5 maybe 10 seconds.My FSX sliders will be in a following post.

Are you running a laptop?  You may get better results if:
 
You get rid of:
 

[GRAPHICS]

ForceFullScreenVSync=1

 
Change/add the following:
 
[JOBSCHEDULER] 
AffinityMask=14   //You have a quad core, if you are running with HyperThreading enabled change the entry to=84
 
[Display]
TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT=120

See if that helps.

You seem to have a lot of things MAXED for a 3.0 GHZ CPU.  How about some of the other settings like aircraft labels, light bloom and lens flare.  These are some simple things that you can un-check and maybe help reduce your FPS drops.

 It's a desktop with a 27" monitor. The things that I didn't mention like light bloom and lens flare are unchecked. Also everything FSX is on my ( C ) Drive , that has 524 GB free of 910 GB.

Got it!  You could try overclocking your CPU as FSX is CPU dependant.  Mine is set at 4.9 GHz (stock 3.33) and FSX is incredibly smooth.  

 

Have you considered purchasing a video card?  I found that I got improved perf when I upgraded to a GTX 780.

I'll look into a video card. I tried some of the things you said and there's a noticable difference. I was in single digits to about twenty. Now I'm looking at twenty to twenty-eight. I have never overclocked, but I have heard a lot about it. Is it relativly easy to do?

You have to go in via the BIOS to overclock your CPU, I feel comfortable doing it on my PC, I have custom memory timings for my RAM as well. 

 

If you know of a trusted PC shop that you can take your PC to have OC'd then that is your best bet.  You might have to update your BIOS when installing a new video card anyway so you can have it all done at the same time.

 

Then you would finish that up by installing and configuring nVidia Inspector and deleting your FSX.CFG so a new one is built and then you would enter your edits.

Do not attempt to overclock until you understand what is happening in your BIOS, how to overclock and feel comfortable then do it. Visit Overclocking forums and root around in there.

BACK UP FIRST!!!

 

[Display]

TextureMaxLoad=2048 This number is not correct! Read Bojote's post here

 

[TERRAIN]

WATER_EFFECTS=5 This might be too high

 

TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_TREES_PER_CELL=2500 Remove this temporarily with "//" marks in front of this statement.

TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_BUILDINGS_PER_CELL=1600 Remove this temporarily with "//" marks in front of this statement.

 

[DISPLAY.Device.Intel® HD Graphics.0] Remove these 2 lines,  should only one "Display.Device" per monitor.

[DISPLAY.Device.Intel® HD Graphics.0.0]

[bUFFERPOOLS]

UsePools=1 I believe this redundant, FSX defaults to this. Most add "UsePools=0"

PoolSize=5000000 Remove this temporarily with "//" marks in front of this statement.

 

[JOBSCHEDULER]

AffinityMask=255 With a Quad Core CPU with Hyper-threading enabled should be 84 and without Hyper-threading 14

 

The following is from my FSX            

 

AIRLINE > 20 If I remember correctly, 20% MT360 is a lot of AI Traffic.

 

GA > 20 Kill the following temporarily to see how it affects the sim.

AIRPORT VEHICLE > MIN.

ROAD > 20

SHIPS> 7

BOATS > 7

 

 

I won't overclock. I would be afraid to.

 

Then you shouldn't for now. Learn about it first.

 

Your main problem is your CPU speed, but we can work with that. You have to give up some quality. Look at some of the suggestions above, however, please back up your FSX.cfg first by renaming the file name to FSX.cfg.orig leave one in the directory it resides in then a second copy somewhere else..

UsePools=1 I believe this redundant, FSX defaults to this. Most add "UsePools=0"
PoolSize=5000000

 

The "UsePools=0" is used if you have a high end GPU like a 700 series nVidia card otherwise it is best to use the pools setting=1 with a rejectthreshold setting.

 

It would be best if you read the FSX Configuration guide which is linked under Hot Spots on the right.

Unfortunately that guide is very basic he needs the AVSIM Hardware Software Guide, which is blocked. You are right about the UsePools=1 for low end.

I will look for the AVSIM hardware & software guide and post it here if I have it.
