FSX SP2 TWEAKS?

Recommended Posts

Guys, what are the current tweaks you use in FSX SP2 to improve fluidity and FPS? SP2 is very different from intitial release and SP1, so I wonder if texture, clouds, autogen reductions are still applicable. Is {JOBSCHEDULER} section is still actual, what else?I guess this part in FSX.cfg is still useful:[TERRAIN]TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_TREES_PER_CELL=XXX TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_BUILDINGS_PER_CELL=XXXAlso, for example, I'll try one advise I found here today and bring down BUILDINGS to 0 with hires GEX textures installed.I got a medium to strong system with C2 Extrm 6800, 8800GT @650/950Mhz, 4GB RAM (boot.ini fixed for WinXP SP2 32-bit) and I want an update on what is the current state of popular tweaks for FSX?Thanks.

Guys, which texture resolution do you set ingame for GEX and UTX? Is it quite different, say 1m or 30cm visually? (In FSX.cfg it corresponds to values 25 and 27 respectively). Is there noticeable impact on performance and FPS if you played with this value? I have not found any.Thanks.

The only way to find out is to do what you did (play with this value) as no two systems are alike. You didn't find any difference but someone else playing with those values may find they create havoc on their system. I have GEX/UTX and my resolution is set at 1m and I receive good FPS and nice crisp textures as long as I'm not in high density areas like LAX, SEA, or JFK. The aircraft I'm flying has a lot to do with the FPS too. I use no "tweaks".Jim

Another couple of useful tweaks:1. Replace the trees with a lower resolution version, I use:'Generation-X Volume 1: Photoreal Trees'2. Fix the flashing clouds:Search for Flashing clouds and shader in this forum3. Force Vsync to "on" via nhancer to fix tearing scenery when banking the airplane.

I got flashing clouds too, is the fix in the library? Never liked #3, I trade tearing for higher number of non-completed frames. They all matter in heavy rain and clouds. I'll try the trees, the stock ones don't look good to me.

Nick, thank you for your posts. I found those tweaks and did them already a few days ago. All saved and epitomized. :)Edit: Oh, the second link is new. Thanks.!
