As a DX-10 late bloomer, changing from DX9 and P3D only in the last 9 months, my experience, specifically with Steve's DX10 Fixer is that the results are real. Not eye-candy. Steve has truly put an awful lot of outstanding work into making DX10 as great as it can be.

 

If the CFG, NVI, and Fixer settings are all working together, the end result is an average of 30FPS with heavy FPS aircraft and scenery. The only time frames really drop to around 15FPS is around heavy populated areas with FTX. With settings like an LOD of 6.5 99% of the time, with clouds at max, and water at max, it never ceases to amaze me.

 

Ron, here is a link to my screenshots:    http://fsfiles.org/flightsimshotsv2/flyultimate/?list=images&sort=views_desc&page=1

 

These shots show what I have been able to obtain by spending time trying to balance all of the settings. Sure would like to see some of your shots as well.

 

Won't go back to any other DX or Sim variation. The results and feel are outstanding. Coupled with REX Texture 4 and FTX.

 

Cheers,

 

Jim

My pleasure, Ron! After working with FSX since it came out, with 2004 before that, I have never really been as excited with a Flight Simulator. What Steve, not to mention the work of so many talented folks in addition, has produced has brought a great sense of pleasure with FSX DX10.

thanks both!

 

Steve

 

You sure are welcome, Steve. You have, for years, put a lot into FSX. If it wasn't for what you have done, I personally would have just been content with DX9 until the cows come home.

 

Thank you for your time and contribution to FSX.

Very real indeed.

Steve has done an incredible service to our community with this product.  I was amazed at the visual improvement.  Even saw improvement in frame rates with my high end rig which I didn't think would be possible.
