Xplane in windowed mode - FPS halves

Recommended Posts

When I run Xplane in windowed mode or in full-screen mode with my mouse clicking outside, my FPS is almost halved, from 40-50fps to 20 fps. Is this usual?

Nope, no problem here.

Thanks for looking. I have no obvious background processes running and my CPU and memory usage are no different.

 

My specs are: 4770k @ 4.8Ghz, ATI 7970, 16GB RAM.

Windowed mode does seem a little wonky. I see about a 10% decrease in framerate if I run the sim in an 800x600 window as opposed to 1920x1080 fullscreen. I wouldn't ever fly at 800x600, but that does seem a little off to me. (For what it's worth: v10.30b8, Win 7 64-bit, 760 OC 4GB, 340.52)

Also, in full-screen when i click my mouse to my 2nd monitor, it slows down too.

Do you set your taskbar to auto hide?

If not try it.

 

Gave that a try, unfortunately did not make any difference.

Well, I am forced to use it in windowed mode now that I am using it with PSX, but I am getting good fps, usually above 60!!!


Don't know, but to me MFS looks a lot like the "Barbie" of desktop flight simulation...

Doesn't matter - I like to play with Barbies...
