.cfg reads differently than settings in FSX

Recommended Posts

Hi.  I just installed a 980 Ti card and new 50" 4K monitor.  Everything seems to be working great (Nvidia and Windows show 4K @ 60Hz., great framerates) and in my FSX Display Settings the hardware shows GeForce 980 Ti and resolution at 3840 x 2160.  But, when I check my .cfg file the hardware is still shown as GeForce 670 and mode as 1920 x 1200 which were my previous specs.   Does anyone know why these entries haven't changed after my upgrade?  I've read that Nvidia settings override the .cfg settings and that definitely looks to be the case unless I'm not really seeing the 4K, but just think I am.  Don't think so.

 

Thanks for any comments.

I just upgraded to a Dell 34 inch monitor and removed all of the [Display.Device] entries in the FSX.cfg. I then restarted FSX, and then went into FSX setup and changed the resolution for my monitor. It now shows the following:

 

[DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780.0.0]

Mode=3440x1440x32

Anisotropic=1

AntiAlias=1

 

Before that the resolution was shown at 1920 x 720 so I do not believe the FSX.cfg "sees" new monitors and video cards properly. However, there are usually several Display entries in the FSX.cfg and one of them probably shows your video card/resolution correctly. Make sure you delete all Display entries in the fsx.cfg.

Thanks, Jim.  I will give that a try and see what happens.  I'm not too worried because it appears, judging by what I'm actually seeing, that the Nvidia settings are taking precedence over the .cfg file entries.  But, I would like to get everything in line the way they should be.
