Nice to see they are still pumping sales but to lazy to convert to FSX-SE. Actually I do believe they are the only DEV that hasn't converted yet

I don't know how you can guys can fly the Mustang and king air...  I love the KA to death but the glass just destroys my rig... argh.  If I fly anywhere except default scenery I'm under 20 fps in no time.  And stutters argh!

 

Still a great discount for a nice aircaft.  I think the KA is better though, more in depth systems and more G1000 features.  KA is their best aircraft to date.

Might be your video card.  I typically see 30s on the ground with the Mustang.  40s up high.  I run windowed mode with Aero enabled.

I doubt it (I'm using GTX 970)... I think it's my CPU.  My "ageing" it 2500K at ONLY 4GHz hehe.  I run windowed without aero.  Honestly the 20 fps is ok but I get terrible stutters (fps swings from 15 to 50).

Why don't you try turning aero on?  Helps a bunch on my rig.  Is there a downside?

I gave up on the KA myself, not so much for frame rate issues per say, but because of the slow refresh rate of the flight displays themselves which made flying smooth instrument approaches in IMC impossible for me.

 

It became a vfr-only affair for me...if I can't get 30fps gauge refresh rates I'm done for.

Oh?  I've always heard Aero hurts performance...  What do you mean by "helps a bunch?"

Well...I see 25-30% increase in frames.  In fact, when I look up and see my frames low I check to make sure I restarted Aero. Most times, that's the cause.

 

Try running this from a command window or batch file...

 

net stop uxsms
net start uxsms

 

You may need to run it as admin, depending on your machine configuration. My toolbar is transparent if I've restarted it.  It's crappy looking if I haven't.

Simstarter has a check box to restart Aero as well. Best piece of free software available for flight sim IMO

My color scheme automatically goes to windows basic when I run FSX.exe - is that normal?

 

Oh I figured out the batch file.  Yes it increases fps a lot.  But the color scheme I was running before turning aero on (not the basic scheme aero reverts to when starting FSX), had my fps identical to running aero after the batch file.  So that's not the issue.

 

My issue is FPS variance... if you enable the low average high counter for the mustang I get from 33 fps to 113 fps with an avg of about 55 in rural areas.  Anyway the FPS variance is the percentage value - mine ranges from 30-40%.  Which means huge stutters... iow stutters because the fps changes so rapidly from low to high and back.

 

This condition is exacerbated when I run Track IR - the stutters are horrendous.  Ugh

Start FSX and *then* run the command.  Your display should go back to normal.

Yeah I fixed that....  I edited my post though with a bunch of info

 

Plane is fantastic though...  apparently others aren't having the fps stutters I see.  So I would recommend the product:
