Anyone tried this?

Is it any good? I read the description on the product, i understand what it does. Just wondering if it is worth getting.

Up to 200% FPS (frames per second) improvement ? Snake oil. Probably reduses everything on the fly to zero.

Is everything in 2018 going to be 'live' we done evolution,extended, X, and next generation so I guess that's 2018 buzz word.

If you want better FPS, you just turn down some sliders in the display settings to your liking. For that, I don't need a $15 tool that does it for me...

It uses a sliding bar to reduce your settings and hopefully increase your fps. Snake oil chasing the fps monkey. You can do the same for free - just reduce all your settings.

Hi Folks,

But is it Y2K compliant ?

:tongue:

I think the author/s of this product may be hoping to capitalise on the fact that there are many simmers who are unsure what sliders to back off or are unwilling to spend time experimenting. If so, then why not? Hopefully any gains in performance come about as a result of judicious adjustments of the various in-sim settings based on known and proven evidence rather than by employing a blunderbus approach. Doubtless there will be some Prepar3D.cfg tweaks thrown into the mix. Again, one can only hope that these are sensible, are also based on good evidence and don't risk disturbing the overall balance of the user's setup.

There is always the temptation to ramp up settings to unrealistic values, particularly on weaker systems, so this tool might just prove to be an invaluable addition to the flight sim armoury of some users. Achieving great performance away from high density scenery areas is relatively easy, not so much around complex airports and cities. What would be helpful is to have a tool that can adjust settings appropriately on the fly during a flight. Not sure whether this tool can do this or even if it's at all possible.

Hi,

Why do you not post a video with your assumption?

Looks like a dynamic FTFF tool. 

More processor power - less graphics quality

Less processor power - better graphics quality

 

Around 2000-2002 there was a program that helped with framerates by dynamically adjusting the AG density.

Such a program but then improved would be very welcome.

Desired , but realistic framerate - Dynamic AG settings - Dynamic LOD setting - Dynamic Mesh resolution - Dynamic Traffic settings

That I would buy immediately ...

Yes, to answer the OP's question, it does indeed work, or at least I know it does in FSX, along with some of their other tools which also do work. However, there's a caveat to that which is this: Whilst technically it doesn't really do anything you couldn't do by moving the option sliders, what you can't do without that tool, is move the option sliders on the fly, the sim would think about it and reload if you did it with the options sliders alone. That's the advantage the tool confers. So because you can make changes 'on the fly' without seeing a load screen or a progress bar, it's a bit more convenient, which is what the 'Live' part of its product name refers to.

Now you might not think that matters too much, to some extent that is a matter of how much a load screen bothers you, but, you can dynamically tweak the settings and see the change take place in the sim, so it is at least going to let you make a visual comparison on the fly when you turn stuff down. Whether you think that's worth ten quid is up to you, personally, I thought it was kind of worth it for FSX when VAS was a issue, because it meant I could whack the 'speed me up' slider over when near the end of a flight and it helped to prevent VAS issues closing the sim down after a long flight in something like the FSL A320 as a fancy payware airport loaded up into the sim, and it also meant that when up at 35,000 feet, I could drop the ground detail down on the fly in order to up the FPS. So yeah, it does work, but as long as you understand how it does what it does and that the advantage is really in being able to do that 'live' as you fly, then you can decide whether you think it's worth the price of entry.

I always wondered why there isn't an option in the sim to set a (reasonable) fixed framerate and then let the sim automatically and dynamically adjust the performance-relevant sliders like autogen and traffic (maybe within customized min-max-intervals) to maintain that fixed framerate.

That's an easy one - because THEN people would complain that there's not enough autogen and/or traffic.

If then they would have a smooth Sim they probably would prefer that...

And less AG would only appear in very detailed areas where otherwise the Sim would start to stutter.

Regarding FSPS : they have released multiple tools to help with smoothness over the years. The most known is Fiber Accelerator. I did try that one and while it helped with gaining some framerate it sometimes gave me blurries.

 If you set your Sim to be smooth at the most demanding environment you won’t need this tool. If you would like better graphics and more detail in a less demanding environment it might help. 

And I agree with Chock completely.

Here a review on FSX Booster

Here an review from Froogle about their Fiber Accelerator
