Shimmer and Shake

Recommended Posts

Spent the kids' inheritance on fancy new computer, configured hopefully for best fs9 experience. Frame rates superb, but I'm bugged by that accursed shimmer. I had it licked on my old computer, but the same settings on my new one don't reduce it. After days of juggling, the best I can arrive at is by keeping AA at 4, reducing AF from 8 to 4, and increasing mipmap from 4 to 7. But that's a compromise, and and there's still enough shimmer to be a distraction. I begin to wonder if maybe that could be down to my new LCD monitor with all its pixels firing away - but outside fs9, the picture is extremely sharp. If anyone out there who has conquered the shimmer problem could let me know their settings, I'd be very grateful.

You're saying that if you have your MIP-map setting in FS2004 at 4, you get more shimmering in tree and building textures than on a setting of 7?I'm curious because that's exactly the opposite of what you should be experiencing :) At MIP-map 7 you should see much more shimmering than on 4.
