Hi Jim; You're not as likely to get stuttering when using DX10 as the GPU does the graphics on it's own, but you'll encounter the problems of vSync, Windowed mode and "spinning hourglass" - fortunately these can be "fixed", so take a look at page 16 of the "DX10 How-To" Guide in the sig at the bottom of this post: it's a bit fiddley to follow, but it does work. It will clear the mud - ok!

 

All the Best,

I've just (last night) discovered the cure for the everlasting hourglass phenomenon! Open another pop-up window, maybe an options window, whatever and drag that across to your other monitor. Immediately the hourglass stops and your missing pop-up (in my case GPS) reappears on your main screen. Drag it back to where you want it and close the other pop-up. It all about Windows losing focus on your pop-up and is desperately trying to find it.

This saves having to come out of FSX and starting again.

 

Nothing left for me to moan about DX10 now. :biggrin:

 

Oh, I did try this many times before I was convinced.

..and this one's going into the Guide, Ron (with your kind permission, of course....)  :im Not Worthy:

 

"Of course!"  :biggrin:  "Why - thank you!"    :drinks:    "You're welcome"    :hi:

 

All the Best!

:Money Eyes:  You can use this one, Ron, but like P3D, I'm not sure that it works at the moment...

Great find Ron.

You should repost this in a new thread to spread the word.
