weird pixelated 2D panels - any ideas on why?

Recommended Posts

I have FSX Acceleration installed on my "second" flight sim PC, which I normally use for auxiliary instruments but wanted to mess around the LAN multiplayer stuff a little bit.For some reason, all 2D panels are extremly pixelated - it's kind of like looking at a Windows program icon in MSPaint, zoomed in pretty far.The PC is a bit marginal to run FSX, but I have everything turned down to minimums and can actually get pretty good framerates. The video card is an old NVidia GeForce3 Ti200, with "only" 64Mb of RAM The Forceware driver revision is 93.71. The PC is a 2.7gHz Celeron, with 768Mb of RAM (yes I know that's not a lot but this was a cheap refurb'd system).Is this a display or system RAM issue?Thanks,Dave B.

Dave:Both.That's a drastically underpowered system spec for FSX. I'd have a tough time reccommending how you could tweak that system apart from putting FSX on a far more powerful rig.Jeff ShylukAssistant Managing EditorSenior Staff ReviewerAVSIM

Point taken - I know it's a lame platform - although I ran FS9 on it for quite a while with adequate (not great) results.I will reiterate that the framerates are pretty good when I turn everything down - but apparently there is some hard limit that I've come across w.r.t. panels.I guess I'll dedicate that PC to running Jeppesen Flite Deck, etc., for which it's perfectly adequate.thanks,Dave B.

That's gotta be something video related...hehe, I remember when the GF3's came out! They were the latest n greatest, and I remember seeing screen shots of various new games that would use the GF 3 technology. My how far we've come!You could try tossing in a newer AGP card (Is the GF3 agp in the first place???)
