WOW...does DSR really jazz up FS9!?!?

Recommended Posts

You bet it does!!!

 

 

I'm presently in a flight with an A320, out of KFNT, headed for KMIA, running DSR at 2.0/33%

 

 

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

FS9 looks grrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat also with a factor of 1.5/33%

 

The bodies of the jets...especially the engine and their nacelles, look as real as you can get them...and I still think that FS9, for the look of terrain at the FL's, STILL is above what even FSX or P3D.x can produce...and simply because of the palette color that is used in this sim.  Nothing comes close to LOOKING like terrain below you, at the FL's.  I still very much use FS9 as the de facto Big Iron champ of all time.  It will never come off the hard drive...because...for what valid reason...WOULD IT?!?!?   If there is one...it sure is lost on me....

 

Back to the flight......Evolution is providing great weather...and Extreme is showing off how good clouds can look within this sim.

 

Oh yeah...having a blast...and with DSR polishing this sim...even more so!

 

Post Edit:  One of the very first things I noticed, is that at DSR 2.0/33%, the coastlines of any land mass, is gorgeous to view...no more jag, or abrupt angles, that always had plagued FS9's rendering of coastlines. Now...under DSR, they have beautiful form, and total real-world believably. What a boost, DSR is well...heck...to any sim I have tried it out on...but man...does it do a number on FS9!  Hoooooooooooooooza!

Reading Mitches posts about DSR makes me wonder if he's ever had any AA working before at all.

Sure DSR works, but man does it blur the picture.

I've tried it in both FS9 and FSX and can't stand the blur, it's much like what FXAA gives you... yuk!

I ran 2.0xDRS at 33% smoothness, using 4xmultisample AA and 4xSuperSample transparency AA with 16x AF.

If I lower the smoothness it gets crispier (the way I like it) but then it starts to shimmer again.

 

Nope, if you have a descent card I suggest trying 16xS AA with some SuperSample transparency AA (2x or 4x).

THAT is image quality if you ask me.

Forgive being 'stoopid' or dumb, what exactly is this 'magic potion', DSR,and where do we get it? Does it only apply to FS9?

That's with the new Nvidia driver but it is supposed only be available for Desktop GPU's sadly.

LOL...I have always used...and know how to set, AA....DSR is beyond that....(smile). A total transformation...and why did nVidia take soooooooooo long?  I could probably have stopped spending with my GTX 285!

 

Oh wait...I just answered my own question, LOLOLOLOL!   Yeah...right.....

Thanks for posting, always great to hear about something that might improve FS9!

It would really be a help if you could post some shots "before" and "after" the tweak for comparison.

OK..I'll do that sooner than later and post in the Screen Shot Forum. I'm sure though, that I am not the only one who is flying FS9, and using DSR within it...hey you folks...push the button as well...and go snap....

Rick,

 

Depending on your version of Windows right click on your desktop and click on the NVIDIA Control Panel link.

 

From there go to the Manage 3D Settings link and go to the Global Settings tab. Under the Global Settings tab you should see a link item DSR - Factors and DSR - Smoothness. Start with the DSR - Factors and select 2 from the list. Then go to the DSR - Smoothness and select the default of 33%.

 

Go to the Program Settings tab and reset everything there to defaults. If you want to be safe, either take a screen shot of your settings or, write them all down. If you're using NVIDIA Inspector, export your FS9 profile first, then from within Inspector, choose the FS9 profile and click on the Nvidia icon which will revert it back to system defaults.

 

Click on apply then fire up FS9

 

Once you're in FS9 go to your settings and you should have a new resolution available. Select it then click OK.

 

Fire up a flight of your choosing then hit ALT-ENTER to take you into full screen mode.

 

You should now have FS9 running at the new resolution!

 

Hope this helps (It's been ages since I've been in the FS9 interface) and if not, post up here and we'll look after you.

 

Mike

Hi Mike

 

Windows 7 x64 Pro Haswell 4.GHz

 

Thanks for all that. Very helpful and informative too. Cheers.

 

But does it only apply to FS9 as I'm running FSX Gold, or can it be applied to FSX as well?
