FS9, now running under W10 Professional

Recommended Posts

Everything not only works, but looks way better...clear, crisp graphics, and high FPS...same goes for FSX and P3D. Full screen, no need to run in windowed mode.

Wing, I have never had a better computer-in-general, or flight sim experience since updating my W7 to W10, and getting a total 'Green' Orbx migration.

 

Those two events over the past few days, have made my enjoyment, the Gold Standard!

 

These shots are taken under the latest WHQL nvidia driver suite 368.81 for W10 systems.

Great set of FS9 shots!  Clouds and sky look beautiful.

Thanks, Pug!  Had a great flight...some really beautiful dusk-to-night transitions started happening when I ended the snaps, and settled in for the duration. Under W10 and the latest W10 nvidia driver (as mentioned in another post), it is deadly smooth, with very fast texture focus and composition from one second to the next, as the animation advances. I am having a mega blast, since the O.S. update.

 

Cheers,

 

Happy Dance Mitch

How did the install go? Was it easy to do? I still use Windows7 and have been thinking of upgrading to Windows10 but I have been hesitant because I have seen in other forums that people have been having trouble with FS9 and Windows10.

After the upgrade to W10, which was painless. (please see my post regarding my experience from W7 to W10 in the W10 Forum. There is an important aspect that I discuss in detail), I had absolutely no issues running FS9, under my new W10 installation, as it ran under W7.

Remember to remove the Orbx TODO file...delete it..BEFORE you try to upgrade.  Also documented in the  W10 Forum.

 

This Orbx file; TODO causes W10 Upgrade to fail in progress. Was taken from the following location:

 

C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Orbx

 

BUT....you need to hear the CRACK of thunder (smile...right...right?) in the background of my post...BEFORE you first run FS9 under W10, unless of course, you ALREADY hear the crack of 'thunder' each and every time you run FS9 under W7 at present.  Right?   Right?

 

If you hear the crack of thunder...than you will have no problems whatsoever...

 

Over 'n out....oh geez...there was another crack of thunder, outside my window(10)....LOL! :wink:  I better go now and shut it before the rain starts, LOLOLOLOLOL!
