Possibility to improve FPS

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

just needed to get this bird (SP1) allthough the majority was upset about the bad performance and stutters that show up even when sitting on ground like a duck without moving, that was no exception to me.

 

I have a rather old pc with an "old" quad 9550 and GTX 285.

 

I though seem to have managed to find a way to get my good FPS back, rather compareable to the TBM850! It seems to be the incorporated WX radar!

 

This is what you could try yourself:

 

1.) Go to your root FSX directory (not the Gauges-folder)

2.) Rename the files CMeteoXml.dll and CMeteoXml.dll.intermediate.manifest to CMeteoXml.dll.bak and CMeteoXml.dll.intermediate.manifest.bak

This removes the incorporated G1000 WX radar out of that aircraft!

3.) Restart your PC to ensure dll´s are offloaded correctly

4.) It also seems to help (in my case) to allways toggle full and windowed screen after choosing the Phenom out of the menu!

 

That´s it ... maybe worth a try and if you´re not satisfied you can allways switch bak by removing the "bak" extension off these two files again!

 

But as allways try at your own risk!

 

Happy flying and cheers!

Hello Andy -- tried your suggestion and it did seem to help a bit. So far, so good.

 

In a 'desperate' attempt to get this plane flying on my system, have also been working with a number of settings in the FSX.CFG file which has helped with the frame rates. I am running an AMD 8120 at 4.0 GHZ and a GTX 660 Ti w/2 GB vid memory. Every system is a bit different on how it responds to various settings. It took some lengthy experimenting.

 

What I was struggling with was the tendency of this addon (compared to others) to drive the frame rates down drastically always right after takeoff. At least I have eliminated that on my system and it is now, at least, flyable, at reduced frame rates.

 

Hoping that the devs for this addon continue to work on it a bit more. Thanks for your input.

Hi! Good work, that really helped to make this bird flyable!

 

Still....it is a performance hog and I wished I would have bought some other addon....but now I can use it at least.

As a matter of fact it would be more helpful to the community if you not only say "number of settings in the FSX.cfg" but actually write down what you did there...

Someone mentioned the option to turn off the G1000 on the right side....how can one do that? Haven´t found the option.

There is a clickspot on the upper left corner of each of the MFDs, little tricky to find, but your arrow will turn into a hand there and klicking will turn the display black.

Thanks....still, this addon is the worst in terms of performance.

 

I have no idea what the devs here thought they were doing when they created this addon, but in comparison to the PMDG NGX (under identical conditions) as measured with MSI Afterburner, the Phenom has the GPU on a 660Ti (OCd) max'd out at 99% where the NGX runs as smooth as butter at 65% GPU load with FPS over 55. I submit this is the primary cause of the terrible graphic performance. The traditional cause of this was an excessive amount polygon content in the model but the way this model behaves with standard "tweaks" to operational parameters (eg in the aircraft.cfg file) I suspect they may have tried something unusual that has not gone well.

 

Regardless of the precise cause, the bottom line is horrible performance that never should have been permitted to escape the design process. Many folks really wanted this to be a good addon, but their fears were justified.

Been battling with this for the last few days and terrible performance on a i5-4670k clocked at 4.0ghz and gtx760 2gig card . The performance is terrible especially with orbx scenary. The primary cause is the 3 prodigy gauges especially the middle turn them off and watch the fps soar .Nice if you like flying blind any ideas!!!! declutter helps a little but not much.

Remember there are options for FSX framerate issues....  :ph34r:

The addon is just as bad in P3D Dillon, very badly coded

Thanks to whoever suggested unticking high resolution 3d virtual cockpit in FSX regarding poor FPS in the Carenado Phenom . It dramatically improved FPS and made the Phenom flyable. Not a perfect solution but until Carenado fixes the FPS problem something I can live with.

Agree....this is my last addon from Carenado.

I hear that their B1900 is about the same performance wise also.

 

I don't think so, the B1900D performs just as terribly as their other aircraft. The Phenom 100 has real coding issues and performance can keep degrading over time.

seems quite a few new paywares are not performing well lately, not only carenado's

 

but are "looking" great.....

 

picture perfect, but almost  a "still" picture

I have noticed this as well, but I don't know if its because they are poorly written or just steadily demanding more and more system resources. I have several recent Carenado airplanes and I just don't get the feeling they are optimized for performance. The B1900 runs surprisingly bad on my system, while the PMDG 777 runs better even though its much more complex.

I have just bought this plane and was prepared for problems as these beautifull Carenado planes seem to be very demanding on systems.

Luckily I started with flights around the Tongass Fjiords and with the Autogen slider down one notch after a FSX crash it flew beautifully.

I then moved to Orbyx Pacific Fjiords etc with the accosiated airports that I enjoy flying about.

I haven't got a flight completed yet! settings lowered to minimums everywhere! I continue to work at it. Needless to say my Cessna Citation Mustang buzzes about quite happily

I am still testing but I found something interesting. When I first loaded I got terrible fps. Similar to what others were describing. I then did a complete uninstall as the Phenom was unflyable. Then I did a file and registry clean using CCleaner. This removes all temp files and fixes registry issues. Anyway, then I went to fly the TBM850 (carenado). I noticed the static elements were missing. I had to reinstall the TBM to get it set back to normal. This got me thinking if the 2 products were interfering with each other.

 

So I uninstalled the TBM and then installed the Phenom and shezam! The Phenom flew wonderful. No stutters or fps coming to a halt.

 

I then reinstalled the TBM to see if all is still well. I have not tested this yet. But I may or may not be onto something. It could have just been a bad install. I hope those having issues find this helpful. I plan to share these thoughts with carenado.

 

Best of luck.

That's a very nice find! Hopefully Carenado will care and do something about this.

Your tip helped..... is there anything else that can be removed to give better performance?

have the days come when they make fast productions, all eyecandy with no regards for performance, shortcuts for the quickbuck. No carenado for me anymore and they should watch themselves so they dont end up in the ditch. Bad rep is not good for business.
