Frustrated with Setting Monitor to 30hz - An Alternative...

Recommended Posts

Thanks again. Scanline works perfectly (incl. with the FSL) and my sim has never been smoother. I settled on x/2 -1060 and FPS locked to 60 in P3D though.

Now, did you try to assign AM to RTSS?

Thanks,

No... why?  :unsure:

Yep, just tried it using the Target box method. 👍

To move it to a less busy Core/LP for example?

Thanks,

You can do that, like any other process.. not sure what you are asking..

So in some further FRAPS testing the lowest consistent frame times I got was simply locking the sim at 30 FPS using P3D limiter and using Dynamic FFTF .01 to .2 AGL scenario.

Seems the FFTF constantly at .33 is too much so locking without FFTF is sluggish. 

If you are using ‘unlimited’ in the sim and happy with it, you can try changing FFTF to .01 as that’s what it is with unlocked FPS, then lock at your desired FPS. 

So yeah, frame times with the internal locker and a low FFTF was significantly better frame times.

Bert, I was curious if you tried to move this app away from the busiest cores or logical processors. Does it sound logical to try it? Or is this program just a dll?

You can do that for sure... I have not bothered and it seems to work OK.

Add to that RTSS, see - already 2 apps that are taking away some precious cycles. But RTSS might be a bad idea, it's a low level app that talks to the hardware.

PS: I'll try soon as I install P3Dv4.5+Hotfix, so far XP11+RTSS @30 works great

Here's how I start my add on apps. I use affinity mask 253 in the P3D cfg so I start all these with hex FC to keep them off Core 0 (LP 0 & LP1).

Spoiler

start /B "" /AFFINITY FC /MIN "D:\User Programs & Data - Bruce\FSXFlight\FSXFlight.exe"
start /B "" /AFFINITY FC "C:\Program Files\REX Sky Force 3D for Prepar3D v4\rexskyforce.exe"
start /B "" /AFFINITY FC "E:\AS_P3Dv4\AS_P3Dv4.exe"
start /B "" /AFFINITY FC "D:\User Programs & Data - Bruce\Guru3D RivaTuner Statistics Server\RTSS.exe"
start /B "" /AFFINITY FC "E:\SPAD.neXt\SPAD.neXt\SPAD.neXt.exe"
start /B "" /AFFINITY FC "C:\Program Files\FSPS LTD\FFTF Dynamic P3Dv4\FFTF Dynamic P3Dv4.exe"

That seems like an excellent idea!

I use 246 for Prepar3D - same thing..

:cool:

For some reason using a batch file line like posted above I can't seem to force AS_P3Dv4 to use the desired affinity mask like I can for my other addons (same mask value for all addons). Is there sometime 'special' about Active Sky in this regard?

I've been checking the affinity mask value with Process Lasso -- what is another way to do this?

Thx,

Al

Start up Windows Task Manager, go to the Processes tab and select the process you want to check up on.  Choose set Affinity, and it will show you which cores are assigned.  You can also change the assignment if you want..

Bert, thanks for the Task Manager tip.

Task Manger shows all cores being used as did Process Lasso. I have a 4 core system and want to free up core 0.

My batch code for Active Sky is:

cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\HiFi\AS_P3Dv4"
start "" /AFFINITY E  "AS_P3Dv4.exe"

The program starts but with all 4 cores assigned. I wonder if there is another Affinity Mask setting somewhere for AS_P3Dv4 that is resetting the mask, but can't think of where that could be. Tis a mystery it is.....  🤔

Agree... do not have that program so cannot help.. other than saying that you can change the assignment using Task Manager.
