DX10 Fixer recommendations....

Recommended Posts

I have been using MSFS since it inception.  I am currently using FSX:SE.  I have applied most of the FSX.cfg tweaks to optimize things out.  I am fairly content with the way things are performing.  I have been contemplating a switch over to P3D, but just cannot pull the trigger on the cost.  However, if LM ever gets P3D developed for 64bit, I may reconsider, but for now I am curious on whether or not to purchase and apply Steve's DX10 Fixer or wait out the race to the next major sim release to see if DTG or LM crosses the 64bit threshold.  From what I have read and seen so far, the DX10 Fixer would be an excellent investment, but I'm in sort of a quandary because I'm satisfied pretty much with the setup I currently have vs trying to stretch a little more eye candy into my sim and maybe a little more optimization.  So, I'm looking for some advice here.  Thanks in advance for any recommendations, suggestions or advice!

haha....I went ahead and purchased and applied the DX10 Fixer and Cloud Shadows.  So far, I do not regret it.  I should have done this many moons ago.

Make sure that you try the DX10 Preview Mode BEFORE you buy the fixer to make sure that it works on your system - just ignore any graphics glitches, the fixer will sort them out. The fixer is almost worth the price for the cockpit shadows alone!

Aye, I did run it with DX10 Preview mode a couple days ago and everything seemed pretty good, but I did notice the "normal" graphics anomalies  which they are gone now.  Thank you for the reply!!!

Also, definitely consider getting the cloud shadows add-on for the fixer - highly recommended!

Done!  It was sort of bundled with the DX10 Fixer for $5 something, so I thru it in the order.

I just took my first flight after installing DX10 Fixer Version 3.3. What a major improvement! I've only recently started flying again. This is an amazing upgrade!

I agree.  I don't know what took me so long to get the fixer.  Happy flying!
