RTM Win10 FSX DX9 Experience Thread

Recommended Posts

I would like to start this thread to share peoples experience with the Win10 RTM build released to market today. Specifically for those using FSX and Directx9.

 

Some posts from the latest beta releases over the past 2-3 weeks suggest that launching FSX was now resulting in the preview screen being black, with some reporting that the black screen persisted even when "fly now" was clicked.

 

The goal of this thread is to establish if upgrading to the RTM Win10 from Win7 SP1 is causing any issues for FSX/Dx9 users. 

 

I hope there are none!

I did a clean install of 10240. I got the black screen but when hit fly now it loaded up and worked. To get rid of the black screen I had to check the antiailiasing box but hitting fly now caused a black screen in game. I'm now using dx10 with the fixer and it works fine

A fellow user figured out that running the June 2010 Direct-X User End times after the installation of Win10 solved his black screen issue! Now using Dx9 without issues.

I tried that and it didn't work. My Nvidia inspector profile doesn't work either. I don't know what ms did, but everything was good with technical preview. I'm using steam btw

That is terrible news. I am thinking that NI not working with the RTM Win10, will probably be solved when it is updated and officially Win10 compatible (looking at the latest release it is not as far as I am aware). 

 

Regarding Dx9 and the black preview screen, once "fly now" is pressed, everything was looking to be functioning? (Except for NI settings not applying).

 

By the way, are you running the latest nvidia driver? I know they had a big SNAFU a few days back as the windows automatic update created a mess when trying to update the nvidia driver, which in turn was not Win10 compatible. (Solved with the .62 release)

 

Looks like I am going to have to wait off until the initial update storm clears.

Interesting that when the OP asks for RTM opinions, the reply posts are clouded by preview posters.

Guys, it would be nice to see RTM comments only please, otherwise it is pretty much a waste of energy & time scrolling to find RTM postings amongst the chaff that has been posted elsewhere. (similar posts anyway)

what is it with you? You seem like a Debbie downer. Insiders has had the rtm version of Windows 10 for a while now. I have a clean install of the rtm version and I posted about my experience with it. If that doesn't apply to you then you shouldn't be I'm this thread

Preview posters have had the RTM version for weeks now so their comments are 100% valid.

Are you using Nvidia Inspector and Dx9?

 

If so, can you confirm both are working.

 

Ive heard in previous Win10 builds EZDOK was not working. Can you comment on the RTM build and EZDOK?

Agree, nvidia inspector is not working, so no custom antialias.  Psuedo-fullscreen AHK script is also not working.

Not agree on the nVidia Inspector part.  Working well here on RTM with the .62 driver.

With AA in sim turned On I get a frozen flight. Going to try different NV drivers.

 

Edit: That didn't last long. Only the .62 drivers will install with Win 10.

Don't forget the DSR part.  It really helps.

maybe it's the dsr working for you but for me and few more people Nvidia inspector has no effect on aa for dx9. I had to switch to DX10 to get it working

Just remember that there are very few nVidia published AA settings that actually do anything.  These are documented somewhere I believe in an article at Tom's Hardware.

Running FSX:SE. In dx9 mode the sim starts up fine but then after a few minutes the screen will freeze with the sim still running in the background (I can hear throttle changes). Selecting from the menus tends to give me a black screen and the whole sim crashes.

 

Running in dx10 preview seems to work fine for the most part.

I got nvidia inspector to work by running it as administrator.  Now I have my antialias working properly again.
