FSX-SE Whats the best tweak guide?

Recommended Posts

thought I would install FSX-SE.  Whats the best go to tweak guide? Does it require the same tweaks as the Box edition or did dovetail already optimize it for more modern hardware?

 

Cheers!

I just started using it.

I only made three changes to my .cfg file

 

Highmemfix=1 in the "graphics" section  (not sure if this is needed, but it wasn't present anywhere else in the file so I added it)

Wideviewaspect = true

Affinitymask=14

That's it.  And FSX works better than the boxed version ever did.

DTG hard coded Highmemfix into FSXSE so no more need to add this line in the config file.

Try it without any tweaks first! Don't get obsessed with FPS - if it runs smoothly, stop tweaking and just fly. Many of the ”standard" tweaks were attempts to try to improve performance with older hardware and, as I found in a few cases, can actually make things worse on a modern system. I would definitely avoid the online "we'll tweak your FSX.cfg for you" websites - they add a lot of unnecessary rubbish.

 

I found running in DX10 with Steve's Fixer made a noticeable difference for me and I would highly recommend it.

Adjust your sliders when it bogs down, and keep a frame lock at a reasonable value.

 

I use 30 FPS frame lock with very dense autogen. I also have my LOD_Radius at 7.5.
