V3.3.5 running perfectly!

Recommended Posts

For my Sandy Bridge Extreme the following worked best.

Affinity mask=85

HT=on

Frames locked internally at 30

VSync=off

Tessellation=high

Dynamic Reflections=off

 

For autogen: vegetation Max, houses off

Scenery complexity maxed

 

Other settings med-high to ultra

Turned cockpit tooltips off

 

No more tweaking. If ya'll don't hear from me for a while, I'm enjoying this sim!

To me this shows just how different systems and simmers set up their rigs to their liking.  Using Jimmy's post my settings with my 2600K works best at:

 

Affinity mask= left at whatever default is
HT=off
Frames locked internally at "Unlimited"
VSync=off
Tessellation=high
Dynamic Reflections=off

For autogen: vegetation Max, houses Max
Scenery complexity maxed

Other settings high to ultra
Turned cockpit tooltips off

I'm with you, Clutch Cargo. 2600K/3.4GHz and pretty much the same settings (except VSync on right now). But as you say, it's a difficult interplay of components. I use an Intel board (DZ68DB) and an  EVGA GTX970, btw.

 

Kind regards, Michael

 Hey James-

 

Same here, but still running 3.2.3  

 

P3D on 0,2,4,6 and AS2016 on 1,3,5,7-that's it.

 

You might try VSync=60 and frames unlimited at the low(er) fps heavy airports. Works even better.

 

I haven't touched this setup for well over a month; don't even think about it anymore, I just fly which is great.

 

Cheers,

Mark

Hm, you just made an utterly useless topic even more utterly useless. James said his sim is working great so... why tell him to change things and screw it all up? But ah, well, that's what you get with utterly useless topics like this. (Yeah, I am in a weird mood... ;) ) I always wonder what's the use of posting random settings for random systems and saying it works great. Or sucks. Or whatever. Who gives a ######? Utterly useless. (Yes, I am in a VERY weird mood... ;) )

I've noticed that also Mark, if I can't hold 30 locked, switching to unlimited in a dense area can help. Perhaps that can help someone and also help those on the fence about P3D to see folks happy with the latest version. I'm out..firing up a flight!

I've got a few more hours in the salt mines and I too will be jumpin' into the Lear 25 running up to KSFO from KSAN.

I'm scared to post here in case I jinx up my setup, but now it's too late!

 

Is there such a thing as jinxed by association?

 

What should I do?

How is this relevant when you don't even include the video card you're using?
