Flicker in FSX

Recommended Posts

Hi!If I open for example the overhead panel in the cockpit, and move the cursor over a gauge, the view that you see through the cockpit window changes its position a little. When i move the cursor away from the gauge, the view goes normal again. It's not the easiest thing to explain, so the best would be if you could download and watch the short movie that I have attached. I run FSX in window mode, and I have the latest drivers for my graphic card. The panel that I'm using is the A321, and I don't know if the problem appears when using other panels too.I don't know why I have this problem, but I have noticed that FSX seem to be interrupted by other windows. For example, if someone comes online on Messenger, everything to the left of the little window that appears to the right looks strange. Maybe the problem can be vasFMC that is running in the background? Can it maybe interrupt FSX? I appreciate all help I can get...Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.20GHz (2 CPUs)2046MB RAMDirectX 9.0cNVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT

I know exactly what you are seeing.I installed the 162.18 driver and the problem went away.If I turned off tooltips there was no problem either.

Thank you for your replay Mace! I have the 162.18 driver installed, so that doesn't seem to help, but when I turned off tooltips the problem dissapeared. But what if you want tooltips? Is there any solution to avoid the problem without turn off tooltips?

I have tested to use vasFMC together with FSX, with the NavDisplay active and set to be always on top. I have the NavDisplay placed to the left a bit from the top of the screen. When I have the NavDisplay activated, everything that is below the top of the NavDisplay freezes, and only the strip between the top of the display and the top of the screen continues to work. The same thing happens if someone comes online on Messenger while I have FSX running. The little window that appears at the bottom right of the screen makes everything from the top of it down to the bottom of the screen to freeze until it has disappeared. I don't know what's wrong, does anyone have any ideas?

Reportedly, nVidia people go there some and if you yell enough you might be heard.I did give you a workaround (turn off tooltips) but I am like you--I really wanted tooltips. I am lucky that the new driver seems to have solved the issue for me.There is/was some issue with other windows interfering with the way FSX displays its windows.
