...remember I'm making no recommendations - I was just asked simply what advice I might give for this (in a nutshell). Mostly these days as Mike says it's going to be auto.

Also I know Gerrard has a point - there might be some esoteric situation whereby the pagefile size is an issue. As I mentioned, building apps and accounting for the crash dump are some ideas. My answer - quite obviously - had no intention to account for those situations.

I hate when people say "Oh well the sim performs perfect when stripped back to default": like OK: when is the last time you used P3D at default with no Add-ons?. Like get outta here. 

Yes, pretty boring - the sim only. That's not Mikes point though I know what you mean - the sim has to support the addons that make things interesting.. To do that we need a good base to start with.

I think there's several problems around causing strange issues and it's not surprising there's a lot of forum threads going around discussing issues. Mostly these discussions of issues are unnecessary as there often are simple fixes to a setup or config file, and in some cases a bug that is obvious to a dev once he has enough to go on. The bugs can be fixed overnight, but problems associated with developments to a system after several addons have been installed, fettled and fiddled with, can be like a game of Chinese whispers. Configs and sets of files develop into some kind of situation that scuppers the proper operation of the sim.

Stripping back the sim to a point we know should work properly is not the new Black.

Professionals know how to resolve a problem quickly - that's not by starting with only a few addons and a couple of planes. Any problems: Start by actually eliminating the variables or it will take all day.

Like somebody stated before, this (and also the famous "blurries" thread) is very exciting to follow. I just want to say several times a day i check and hope for new posts, it's like reading a good book and waiting for the final chapter. I don't know if, for me personally, there were really new suggestions or steps to follow when running into these problems, and even can't tell if i have these issues as i'm not flying that much at the moment and normally never do long haul flights for example, but as i said it's really exciting to follow if you well known guys find the conclusion what's causing these miracle blurries or fps downstep. Myself i didn't encounter these with my type of flying so far as i remember...

But anyway thumps up and thanks to all of you for your afford, research and pleasurably discussion.

Will try to replicate your issues... %)

Kidding. Damn good thread!

@SteveW- With v4,3 do I now not need the AM setting we arrived at some months ago with the advent of v4? As you may remember I use P3D as a scenery generator, with other programs running in the background... as ever, I remain obliged.

Regarding the framerate slowdown over  time multiple people have written that they are sufffering from it. V4.3 doesn’t let objects go as fast as former versions it seems .

But why the franerate drop is less with a flight from Amsterdam to Frankfurt than from Frankfurt to Amsterdam ?

It’s a pity that with V4.3I now need to lower or disable objects as a workaround ....

Setting "special effects detail" to low sadly removes the nice lightning effects from FSReborn...

If only we could do something to make V4.3 let go of objects out of sight ...

If V4.3 does not listen to let go commands coming via Simconnect , perhaps some setting/tweak might help...
