Where can I find the PoolSize. A step by step instruction would be nice.

Hi,I might add that you have to manually add the section (replace < and > with square brackets) and the entry Poolsize=nnn, to the file fsx.cfg. You may use Notepad to edit the file. Default value for the setting is 5000000.Ulf B

Ah, yes, we are talking about making an entry to the fsx.cfg! It was late when I typed my reply, and I overlooked stating this little detail.Thanks Ulf.

DaveO,Thanks. Your'e right, default is 4000000.I guess that the effect of how much poolsize you allocate from the graphics memory will depend on how much memory your card have. I've got 768MB on my 8800GTX. If you have less than 512MB I guess you have to be careful with this setting.Ulf BCore2Duo X6800 3.3GHz4GB RAM Corsair XMS2-8500C5BFG 8800GTX, Creative SB X-FiFSX Acc/SP2, Vista 32
