Which tweak would you consider "essential"?

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I recently un- and reinstalled my complete FSX. I only installed the addons I really use, and my FSX.cfg only contains the HIGHMEMFIX=1 and the AFFINITYMASK tweaks. I never had a faster booting, performing and better looking FSX! I also use it in DX9 mode.

The performance is really great! With frames set to unlimited, I get a framerate of well above 30 most of the time, with drops down to low twenties at dense airport sceneries,

Only at some airports and over cities like London (FTX Global, FTX Vector, FTX Open LC Europe and FTX Trees HD), my fps go down to 15-19.

Which additional tweak would you add to speed up FSX in these areas, if any, and why?

My system specs:

i5 3570k @ 4.2 GHz


GTX 670 2GB

all on SSD

Win 7 64 bit


FSX with Acceleration Pack, sliders are all set to reasonable settings, autogen and scenery complexity are set to "dense", AI aircraft traffic is completely off.

I use ASN and REX soft clouds with a maximum of 4 cloud layers.


Thanks in advance for your input!
