FSX demo, blurries and BIOS graphics aperture size :-))...

Recommended Posts

Reading Adam's thread (Comments about the blurries from an ACES developer) rang a bell.I have a medium performance PC (Northwood 2.8, ASUS P4P800 Deluxe mainboard 1 gig of RAM, Nvidia 6600GT 128 AGP and a SATA hard disk)Until now, I had very poor performance using the FSX demo : sudden freezes, low res textures everywhere (including airplane, cockpit and gauges textures)... I tried several video drivers but with no result.I ended up having a look at the Bios settings of the mainboard and increased the Graphics Aperture Setting from 64 to 128.That was the trick : the high res textures are there, no more freezes.Very good performance even with FSX medium - high settings (as long as I don't switch on autogen...)Now eagerly awaiting FSXJean-Paul


KInd regards
