Hello,

After starting a flight in FSX, the framerate will be 25-30. The frame drop as time passes until it becomes 1-2 FPS. It all started when I purchased EZDok camera. I noticed that if I minimised FSX, and do something else on other programs, then after 15 secs I maximise FSX, the frames would be normal (Around 25 FPS), but, the same thing happens, the FPS drops as time passes :bengong: . It would be really grateful if someone sort out this problem. Also, it started when I started to fly the Airbus X. (But I had bought it a long ago, flew it on the day I installed Ezdok camera, but never managed to get it airborne because of this FPS drop...)

First thing to do is - check your GPU load. 
But to help you, we will need more info. System specs, FSX install location and info about tweaks applied (if any), also more details about addons would be great. In your case, just to check, I'd uninstall EZDOK and test if same happens. 
If that doesn't help, backup your fsx.cfg file and delete it. FSX will rebuild it.

As I fly in VATSIM, I use vPilot, vatSpy, smartCars, FSXWX (Freeware Weather Engine), FSX VAS Monitor while using FSX.

I use payware airport addons for major airports, I fly in the PMDG 737 and 777 all the time,I use Steve's DX10 Scenery Fixer (I use DX10) for more FPS and nothing else.

Hi,

The problem is that this machine is not powerful enough to run FSX with those addons. I'm afraid there's not much the forum can help with here.

The CPU has a passmark around 1900, compared to a i7 6700 at 11000

The GPU has a passmark around 300, cormpared to a GTX 1070 at 11000

People running FSX with your addons with the hardware above still get performance issues sometimes with PMDG and addon airports. No wonder you're having problems.

Regards,

Andre

But, It was all smooth 3 days back. But ever since I have flown Airbus X and installed EZCA, everything went wrong. :nangis:

Exactly!  Your computer meets the minimum specs for a stock installation of FSX.  You are now adding onto it and it is overloading your computer.

Okay, so I have uninstalled the Airbus X and EZCA, but the problem still persists :nangis:

I fly in the PMDG like earlier and still have lagging problems.

Not sure why it was smooth at some point. But I'm surprised you had any kind smoothness with that system. Trust me, save yourself hours, weeks and months of frustration tuning, tweaking, uninstalling, reinstalling, turning on and off features etc. Just get a new system.

FSX is very tough on the hardware. That's just a fact everyone has to live with.

If money is an issue, last gen processors and gpus should be reasonably priced now and would still run FSX very well.

I have 4GB RAM but 3GB Usable, is there a way to use the other 1 GB for FSX? I am not in a condition to buy hardware :sad:

I don't know enough about things like that to give you an answer. It wouldn't help much probablt, though, since your cpu and gpu are both bottlenecks.

The only thing you can do is uninstall addons. With your setup, a clean no-addons FSX might work. PMDG may work with low quality settings. I'd leave the addon airports out. Sorry

After uninstalling EZDOC and any other addons you have, airports, complex aircraft, you should delete your FSX config. and let a new one build. This might help some, but as the other members have said, you are running with the absolute minimum hardware for vanilla FSX to run.  There are some guides on this site that might help.  From the main forums page, look to the right hand side of the screen look for the title "Tutorials". There is a wealth of information there related to your problem.

I had already uninstalled Airbus X and EZdok, will try deleting the FSX.cfg after I reach home. Hope it helps... :senang:

Aside from starting with a new config file, you can try this.

1. Turn every slider to the left and uncheck every box in the settings.

2.Turn each slider to the right one notch at a time until you get something playable.

I fixed the problem myself :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

The CPU Temperature was rising above 80 degrees, so I thought the CPU fan must be faulty. However, when I removed the case cover, the fan was covered with excess dust, and cleaned it. Now FSX including other games are running as usual smoothly :biggrin:

Thanks everyone for the help!!
