    747-400X logo lighting

    And almost bet that you have a NVIDIA card. There is a problem with light effects under DX10 preview. From certain angles you loose the light.As far I "feel" in the foruns this doesn't apply to ATI cards but I can't confirm.Jos

    LevelD 757 only for FS10

    One thing is the poll result the other is market share. You can have 90% using FS9 but only 1% of those still buying addons.Can't understand why market saturation never comes in to the equation. Jos

    PSS Press Release - January 16, 2008

    Maybe. I'm thinking about FSNAvigator, how easy it was to crack it but nevertheless it was the best selling title for years. At least in Simmarket. Jos

    How do I convert 32 bit in FSX

    Imagetool in the SDK. You can run the commandimagetool.exe -batch -DXT3 -nomip *.bmpThis will keep the bmp extension. If you want to convert bmp to ddsimagetool.exe -batch -dxt5 -vflip -nomip -dds *.bmpA texture backup is a good idea before doing this since it's a batch command.Jos
  5. Usually programs that work with FSUIPC in FS9 should work in FSX. I stopped FSAcars development, however passed a lot of code to another person so I hope that there will be a rebirth.Jos

    DO NOT Reinstall FSX as per David Roch

    You should only loose the registry entry. Just run Flight1 freeware registry repair.Jos
  7. This is strange.Pickup fsxplanner, compiled LPPT without changing anything and still got the shimmering. Changed an apron from asphalt to bituminous compiled and the shimmering stopped in all airport. Not only in the changed apron.
  8. Just noticed that after activating Mytraffic X afcad the airport ground objects shimmering stopped). Tried a few places and it was always confirmed. Can someone confirm this maybe with others afcad bot from MytrafficX?Jos

    Dreamfleet's next FSX jewel ? : POLL

    Not the A36. It will give me a lot of work for Dreammanager :)Jos
  10. Easy, less people working and willing to spend time doing something for free. As you said, it's easy to do the airports but the fact is:no one does it.and yes I did my share of freeware and still doing.Jos

    What's your 747 FPS Poll

    >Why bother, 15FPS is all the human eye can handle.>>Higher FPS is just a waste of CPU power when it could be doing>another task more efficiently.It's a myth, it's not clear how much fps is enough. And please don't compare movies fps with games fps since movies have intraframe motion blur.Jos

    Positive thread & TIPS for Dx10/SP2

    That is my main problem, no position lights. Interesting enough they are there during plane startup.Put yourself in spot view and hit Ctr-E, during the startup the lights will appear in all it's glory, but near the startup end they will disappear.Jos

    Strange fps behavior FSX SP2 DX10

    I don't have the problem, at least during the tests that I made.Just tested with a default weather, over the pacific near KSEA, 38000ft, 45min flight.My fsx.cfg[GRAPHICS]TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=1024NUM_LIGHTS=8AIRCRAFT_SHADOWS=1AIRCRAFT_REFLECTIONS=1COCKPIT_HIGH_LOD=1LANDING_LIGHTS=1AC_SELF_SHADOW=0EFFECTS_QUALITY=2GROUND_SHADOWS=0[sCENERY]LENSFLARE=1DAWN_DUSK_SMOOTHING=1IMAGE_COMPLEXITY=3[DISPLAY]BLOOM_EFFECTS=1SKINNED_ANIMATIONS=1TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT=30UPPER_FRAMERATE_LIMIT=20[PANELS]QUICKTIPS=1PANEL_OPACITY=100[TERRAIN]LOD_RADIUS=3.500000MESH_COMPLEXITY=70MESH_RESOLUTION=20TEXTURE_RESOLUTION=25AUTOGEN_DENSITY=2DETAIL_TEXTURE=1WATER_EFFECTS=5[WEATHER]CLOUD_DRAW_DISTANCE=3DETAILED_CLOUDS=1CLOUD_COVERAGE_DENSITY=6THERMAL_VISUALS=0DownloadWindsAloft=0DisableTurbulence=0[TrafficManager]AirlineDensity=20GADensity=14FreewayDensity=0ShipsAndFerriesDensity=30LeisureBoatsDensity=30IFROnly=0AIRPORT_SCENERY_DENSITY=2My nhancerhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/181329.zipAll Vista hotfixes installed, 169.12 beta driversJos
  15. Bought the card. Same configuration that I had in 7600GT got an 20% improvement in rural areas. However in KSEA mybe 5-10%, however, Mytraffic was only with FSX SDK AI so less AI could explain the benefit. Of course in KSEA I had a CPU bound configuration (6400 Dual Core)Water in 2-middle without a visible penalty was a nice addition. However higher configurations implied lesser frames as expected. Since I don't like the higher configuration look it's just fine.Applied the Storm theme and didn't noticed any penalty even by looking to a wet runway.Light Bloom gave 0 impact in frames.Pumped the board configuration with nhancer 8xs AA, multi transparency AA without Enhance in-game AA setting, 8 anyso and board didn't complaint.The best part was the no stutters and no blurries (I didn't had them before) but was able to pump to 1m textures.Off course the Z-buffer taxiway and white planes problems were expected.Other games:World in conflict it's fantastic with this board and DX10. CoH is almost the same, didn't noticed any DX10 improvement.
