SimStarter and Nvidia Profile Inspector

Recommended Posts

With the ability of these programs (and others) to alter graphic settings in the sim which one of them takes precedent?

With the nVidia Inspector you can only change "graphic" settings that are controlled by the driver. With the SIMStarter, you mainly change "graphic" settings inside the sim itself. So it is not entirely the same. Of course, if you change the settings within nVidia Profile Inspector for your Prepar3d profile, those settings will only be used as soon as p3d.exe is executed and only if they are correct (for example for additional antialiasing, you have to select "override application settings" or at least "enhance application settings"). Other stuff like "render ahead frames", "refresh rate", "vsync" etc. can be set only in the driver menue, e.g. via nVidia Profile Inspector. SIMStarter on the other hand, can only change settings within the sim itself, such as "autogen density", "target FPS", "antialiasing", "screen resolution" etc.


Means: as they do not generally influence the same settings, it does not really matter which one you run first, as long as both are set up BEFORE you start P3D.

I use SimStarter as well and to my knowledge it only changes FSX/P3D settings, nothing outside FSX/P3D like NVidia graphics profiles.

So the NVI profile will be used after FSX/P3D but that also depends on what you actually have set in NVI, like 'enhance' application settings, or 'override' application settings.



Ahhh, someone replied already whilst I was making my reply.
