Phil Taylor, I would like to remove Acceleration, but.....

Recommended Posts

Hi Phil,I know that much has been said with regards to Acceleration and for the time being it seems to be a no-go for some of us which is unfortunate but that is the reality of gaming. Hopefully all is being done so that a solution to the game crashingfreezing may be found by you folks at ACES and by NVIDIA.In the meantime I have had to uninstall Acceleration and after having done so the menu freeze still occurs. It does not matter if I have FSX in windowed mode, if I pause etc. the sim needs to be stopped via Task Manager and restarted in order for it to work. I have tried to install the November release of DirectX 9.0C as there may be a conflict between the DirectX component contained in the Acceleration package and NVIDIA drivers. I get a message stating that a newer or equivelant version of DirectX has been installed already and no installation is necessary.Can you explain how to reverse the procedure or have someone come up with a way to completely uninstall Acceleration and its DirectX components so that we can use FSX again.For what its worth after being in touch with NVIDIA I get the feeling they had not tested FSXAcceleration, could you shed some light on the matter? What is your take on the situation?Thanks,

The DirectX installed with Acceleration is DirectX 9.0c.I believe a while back there was an update to DX9c on the Microsoft website that most people didn't install. I think all they're doing with the Acceleration installation is ensuring your system has that update in place. It's still DirectX 9.0c.

Hi Robert,I think the only way you can go back to an earlier build of DirectX is to Restore your system to a point before Acceleration was installed, assuming, that is, that Acceleration is indeed the culprit. I assume you will still have such a Restore point.Mike

Hi guys,Thanks, I was able to restore FSX to pre-Acceleration by downloading and installing the 64.0 Mb DirectX Redistributable for November after uninstalling Acceleration. Now everything is running well and I can go to the menu and do whatever I want and as often as I want without the program freezing.I received a Tech Support email from eVGA this morning and they said that NVIDIA has recognized there are some problms with their drivers.Hey, they did resolve the purple water issue so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
