FSX FPS drop every 5-10 seconds...

Recommended Posts

Hey, how are you?

 

I am using FSX and DX10 with Steve's Fixer. It doesn't matter which scenery which addon, but my sim will lag every few seconds... I mean the FPS is constant for few seconds than it lags... After about 2 seconds FPS starts to increase.

 

This drives me crazy and I don't know what to do...

If anyone can help, I will appreciate the assistance :)

Thanks.

There are a few things that could cause this, but for me adding the Affinity Mask tweak that got rid of that issue.

You should check out the new AVSIM CTD Guide (see under Hot Spots to the right of this forum). In there we have details on how to use the Process Monitor to just monitor FSX (or P3D or FS9). What I have done in the past when I have issues like this is to run Process Monitor along with my flight. I have pencil and paper nearby. As the flight progresses, I'll write down the time (as shown in the lower right corner of most desktops) the glitch or pause occurred. I'll do this for most of the flight then I'll stop the logging in Process Monitor by going to the app and hitting Ctrl+E. I can then shutdown FSX and begin investigating. I scroll through the log to look at exactly what was being loaded when I saw the pause or glitch. Sometimes it could be an AI flight loading on the other side of the world and not even near my flight path or Autogen loading from scenery I don't even plan on flying over. It will give you some idea as to what might have caused the pause. Of course it could be your video card trying to render some scenery too and just can't fast enough, so fsx pauses. Slow rendering of scenery means you have your settings set too high and/or you have a bad tweak that is not working right. Maybe you put down the wrong parameters for the tweak for YOUR system (not someone else's).

 

Hope this helps.

My suspicion is something running in the background.  Likely culprit a virus scanner or malware scanner.

 

Try turning them off to see if that rectifies the problem, that would then isolate the issue and you can set about fixing it.

 

Don't forget to turn them back on after.

I haven't had any problems with the Windows 10 upgrade thingy.
