I would set your FSX and NI settings as recommended in the AVSIM FSX Configuration Guide (link in my signature).  Nothing has changed.  The settings, although high, will get rid of jaggies. Steve's DX10 Fixer fixed the anomalies created by the Microsoft Aces Team when they programmed FSX/Acceleration for the new DX10 Technology.  The Microsoft Team was unable to fix the anomalies as the Team was released by Microsoft Executives.  Fortunately Steve was able to figure out what file caused the anomalies and fix the problem.  I personally use the default settings for Steve's fixer as I'm only want the fix.  He has a couple of tweaks he throws in your FSX.cfg that I do not like.  I personally had issues with them with my currrent system and removed them.

Have fun with your new system.It's much like mine (see my signature).

Best regards,

Jim

Hi Jim, hi guys,

From this message you will see that i know little to nothing about computers. Some time ago i bought Steve's DX10 fixer and never did anything with the icon, thinking that all was well. Recent posts have told me that i am not running DX10. I use Win7. So I did watch Berto Bettencourts' video yesterday. And I have now set the fixer as he recommended to [8x]. But i do not have inspector. Do I really need it? It's more than my feeble brain can attempt. [Maybe i can get my son here to make inspector do its stuff]

Have made a couple flights with just fixer set to DX10 mode. And first couple seemed much smoother. However I loaded the Milviz Baron, tried to grab the dropdown GTN750 and immediately my left and right monitors went blank. Used Alt+Enter to restore all 3 monitors but could not get the 750 after a couple tries. 

Help would be greatly appreciated!! Big thanks!!

For FSX and DX10 use, I would highly recommend the Nvidia Inspector.  I think it is a must.  The latest version is here - https://ci.appveyor.com/project/Orbmu2k/nvidiaprofileinspector/build/artifacts. Just extract and run the .exe and look for the Microsoft Flight Simulator 10 profile in the upper right corner of the program then complete it as shown in the image in the FSX Config Guide. 

If it works well without the NI and with just Steve's DX10 Fixer settings, then that's fine too if you like the graphics.

Whenever I pulled down a gauge and placed it on another monitor (other than the monitor containing FSX), it worked great until I tried to move it during a flight.  Then black screen and FSX froze up.  Being a computer expert, I stopped doing that as I never could figure out why.

Best regards,

Jim

Thank you Jim.  I made one change to build though, I got the GTX1080Ti...for the "future"...whatever that might hold.  Should I still use the settings you mention?

Cheers!

Hi Aaron,

Okay, I'm jealous.  I was going to hold out for the 1080TI but couldn't wait.  I'll probably still get one but will wait until the really souped up ones are released http://www.pcworld.com/article/3178426/components-graphics/every-custom-geforce-gtx-1080-ti-graphics-card-revealed-so-far.html.  The benchmarks show the 1080TI is a bit better and worth the upgrade - http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-1080-Ti-vs-GeForce-GTX-1080.  I seriously doubt it will help much with FSX (boxed version).  It might with FSX-SE if DTG converts to 64 bit and I think will be better in P3D 32 bit or 64 bit it that sim is upgraded.

Like you said - "for the future".

Best regards,

Jim

Hey Jim

One more question: I have 2 - 780s, does inspector change both at the same time?

Thanks again!

Yes it does.  You should have the two 780's in SLI mode (with the bridge connecting both cards).  The Nvidia Inspector has more graphics card settings than the default used by your system.

Best regards,

Jim

It will be interesting to see what (if any) increase in performance we'll get.  Like I said, I'm not expecting much but hope it comes in handy to have the Ti in the future.

Hey Jim, back again with another question. I have watched Berto's video and read NickN's NVI guide. So when i open inspector and click the tool to get to profiles, type in MS Flight Simulator X, there is no such thing in the drop down box; only FSX 2000. The NVI version is 1.9.7.8.

Help?? Also have your guide.

My guide is obviously better!  It's shorter and doesn't recommend any tweaks.  He did work for Nvidia once and I didn't so that gives him a very slight edge.

The latest version is 2.1.3.4.  FSX should be shown under Microsoft Flight Simulator 10.

Best regards,

Jim

Hello,

I was just wondering what is the latest "Basic FSX Configuration Guide". The only one I could find was dated 2013 and I have read that FSX Steam no longer requires many of these tweaks. Is there an updated guide for fsx.cfg, DX10 fixer and nvidia inpector settings?

Also, when I click on the link for "Basic FSX Configuration Guide" in the signature of Jim Young, a new page opens and Firefox will not open the page and gives a warning?

Thanks for any help!

added point about link not working

The 2013 guide is the latest (and greatest).  It is still valid as FSX has not changed.  I am in the process of updating it to remove any information about the P3D config as we have a separate guide for P3D.  I will be making some other minor changes/corrections too.  Although never created to cover FSX-SE as that rendition of FSX was released later, many of the settings in the FSX config are valid.  FSX/FSX-SE are based on the same engine with some very slight changes to be compatible with Steam.  

The link to the guide and the download works for me.  Perhaps someone on the AVSIM Staff saw your post and fixed it.  Thanks for bringing to our attention.

Best regards,

Jim

Hey Jim,

Printed your guide, got it done, running much better, just an occasional stutter at more complex airports, or turning too quickly. Thanks for the help! Couldn't have done it with out the Guide!!

Hey Jim, will look forward to getting the revised guide, I changed all of your settings except WideViewAspect=False. With 3 monitors it did not seem right, so i went back to "True". Stutters at all major airports is a problem. I know you don't recommend any Tweaks, but is there anything i might do to help this? My stats are below!

Thanks, Lennie G in NC

For FSX, the fsx.cfg should have wideviewaspect=true if you have a wide view monitor.  This setting is not really just for multi-monitors.  In the monitor forum in the Hardware Section we have several topics about multi-monitor usage and one pinned topic on how to set them up.  There are no known tweaks for multi-monitors.  I do know that multi-monitors affect the performance of your computer.  The AVSIM FSX Guide was not written with multi-monitors settings as most members have single monitors. I tried multi-monitors and had no fun and had many issues and got rid of them.  I now use my 34 inch monitor.

If you clamp Texture filtering - Negative LOD bias in your graphics card settings, that is supposed to help reduce stuttering but the only real solution to getting rid of stuttering is to reduce settings as your computer system is having a hard time rendering your textures fast enough and pauses and stutters.  High settings for Autogen might create stuttering too if set too high.

Best regards,

Jim

Jim, 

I have a question. I'm running FSX with triple 27" monitors configured as 1 screen with Nvidia surround through one EVGA 1050ti GPU, giving me a resolution of 5760 x 1080, and a fabulous VC with a wide surround view. My question is: what should I use in NVI for 'Multi-Display/mixed GPU' setting, since although the guide indicates 'multi performace mode' for multiple display setups, NVidia surround effectively sees the setup as 1 screen? 

Cheers, 

Stuart
