Poor FPS with rain...advice needed

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I have just installed a Corsair Hydro H100i water cooler and OC'd to 3.8Ghz on an i7 920. I'm running FSX DX10 (with Steve's DX10 fixer applied) and have locked FPS within FSX to 32. In all weather I get reasonable FPS in the 20's (clear skies much higher) but if I turn on some rain it drops down to the mid teens.

 

Any ideas as to what I can do (apart from flying in clear skies!)?

 

Cheers

DK

I use the FSX_Water_Fix_Final - http://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/17866/fsx-water-fix/ by Tom Knudsen.  All textures are reduced from 1394kb to 341kb to imporove performance in FSX w/o reducing texture quality.

 

Hope this helps.

I have a modified rain40.fx file from what I remember and can't find the original which explains why Steve's DX10 fixer has the Rain section greyed out. Any idea where I can get the original file from and try that instead?


it's ok. I found the original file.
