Well look at this PMDG

This was just something I wrote up real fast to help some of our users who were having trouble getting FSX running smoothly... it's by no means comprehensive and most of it I got from people like Matt Fox who are actually coming up with these tweaks. Just don't want anyone to think this is something different or "insider" is all.

That's a really nice looking guide. Thanks for compiling it all under a wiki.

Funny, I don't recall you being on our FSX test team...

I don't understand part of your wiki there ryan. The part where you say you allow your 7800GTX driver to control the AA and AF. Well, I have just about the same card, and using the driver to set AA and AF has ZERO effect on what I see in FSX. If I don't set AA in FSX, I don't get any AA. Period. Can you explain this?RhettAMD 3700+ (@2.5 ghz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (91.47), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2 GB Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8, WD 250 gig 7200 rpm SATA2, CoolerMaster Praetorian

"Their aircraft will kill fsx for sure." Can you please provide us with the empirical data that you have no doubt collected to come to this conclusion? I'm sure we would all appreciate it. You should also copy the data to PMDG as well. Thanks in advance for providing the data. Craig Ryan; although I am familiar with all that you posted thanks for doing it again. Hopefully some folks will use it and start to enjoy FSX.

I am really skeptical with any complex Aircraft. I purchased Eaglesoft's BeechJet and it brings FSX to it's knees on low settings. Mind you, I have an fx-57 with 2gig ddr and 2 s780gtx's and 2 10k rpm drives in raid(0), and it didnt matter what configuration I put fsx in, it was unflyable. I even had the default.xml file disabled and all off Matts reduced textures except for the autogen ground textures. I left those untouched. When I switch to the Maul, back in the mid 20's with most sliders to the right at ksea. I just dont understand how 1 plane can impact a system that much. Maybe it was a lack of technical expertise with the new sdk I dont know. Anyway it will be interesting to see how well this ones turns out.Bob

Bob, I'm using the Eaglesoft Citation X in FSX and really have no problems with it. While is wasn't designed for FSX I find that it works quite well. Just not sure why I can use the Citation with no problems but your having problems with the Beechjet. Can't believe it's your machine though.

Hi CraigI cant believe it either. Not sure but it's in the hanger. Eaglesoft has not offered any explanations for the poor performance. I will have to wait. Maybe they will streamline the code or something.bob
