Windows Creator Game Mode

Recommended Posts

...gave me a boost of about 3-4 FPS in any given situation.

Game Mode engaged and nVidia 384.94  driver suite, is giving great, and sustainable FPS performance....

I had read about this feature early on and there were a number of xp11 user discussions. Most had stated it crashed or did not do a thing for them. Some thought the problems were the nvidia drivers, others said it might be an addon causing xp to crash. Anyway I never really paid much attention after that.

Just curious Mitch, did you have any issues, or were there any pre-adjustments that you may have had to make?

Do you need Windows 10 Pro for X-Plane or will Win 10 Home suffice?

Interesting review here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/3187171/windows/tested-windows-10s-game-mode-makes-unplayable-games-playable-sometimes.html

The bottom line seems to be that it can help if your system is already struggling or you have a lot of background tasks running.

Yep, I haven't bothered with it, because I run a pretty clean system. I do have Plan-G and a Chrome browser running in the background when flying, but that's about it. With 32 GB of RAM I've got overhead to spare for background apps that aren't tying up the CPU or GPU.

I know where my main bottleneck is right now, and it's the GPU. I need a better video card, eventually. Game Mode won't help with that.

Wow, did not even know I had it. The win version # apparently is the key. So I do have it, but how do you know it's engaged?

None, whatsoever, Bob. I just updated to the lastest W10 CU, updated to the lastest nVidia driver suite.   Rebooted, loaded up a flight...set the Game Mode as 'aware' of XP11...and let 'er rip. 3 to 4 FPS, on average better, right off the bat. No CTD's...nothing but great performance with lots of trips to the mid 50's for FPS along the flight....mean average of 37-40.  Nothing to complain about.  XP11 as it is now...is fabulous.
I believe that a lot of people don't even have the game mode properly configured or set. You have to tag your flight sim, or whatever else you want it to address and make Game Mode aware of it. It will then remember, and when you run that program or flight sim...it will automatically kick in...and cull unnecessary background proc's for the duration. A great feature...and one that brought me over to Creator's Update.

To bring up the console, you press Windows-G...and then it will ask you if you want to run Game Mode WITH the program (game) you are running. If you tag yes...it will add that game/flight sim to its config..and you don't have to do a think more about it.  Set 'n Forget.

Game Mode and the nVidia 384.94  driver suite, is just deadly!!!!

I think it comes with the Creator's Update, regardless of Pro or Home it is updating. I could be wrong...for I do run Pro.

Thanks, I was able to choose xp in game mode. Will see if my eyes bulge out when I fly around the KSEA area (-:
