Correct way to re-build Shaders cache

Recommended Posts

I had asked this question in my other topic concerning black & blue scenery issue at a few airports and/or surrounding scenery.

 

Maybe overlooked hence my new post.

 

Someone advised re-building the FSX shaders cache by deleting the contents.

 

In Shaders are five maps (General, Terrain etc) do I have to remove these or the many .fx files inside.

 

Have also Shaders10, I presume that I do not need to do anything with this map.

 

I presume the FSX cfg or other items in FSX will not be altered.

 

Have others been helped with similar issues by this method of re-building the Shaders cache.

 

Or are there other ways to try and solve this issue.

 

Installed the FlyTampa Sydney, get in the surrounding Orbx Australia scenery the issues.

 

If I disable the airport everything is fine.

 

FlyTampa does not think it is a compatibility issue.

 

All suggestions more than welcome

There is nothing magical about it. Delete the Shaders folders and FSX will re-build them the next time it runs. That is true of ANY cache system.

DO NOT delete anything from the main FSX folder, only from the cache folder. 

 

Also examine the FSX.cfg file for duplicate entries for your graphic card. You can have two entries depending on whether you use DX10 or not. If in doubt show the contents of the .cfg here.

 

But before you do all that, show us your full system details. It may simply be you are asking way too much of your hardware.
