  1. Hi DavidWith your suggested settings in Nhancer and within FSX itselfRunning Nvida Ge Force 8800 GTX 756mb drivers version 169.25Intel Quad Core 6700 2.66 over clocked in Bios to 3.194GB DDRam Vista score of 5.1What Frame rates should I expect at a dense airport with quite a bit of AI traffic and ground traffic.I get low teens at best.What do you get?ThanksPhil M
  2. Check out Precision Flight Controlshttp://www.flypfc.com/cirrusII_flight_console.htmlI have the Cirrus II console and avionics stack and I know it works with Vista 64, thanks to Peter Dawsons FSUIPC and the pfc.dllI know their consoles are a bit on the costly side, but if you can afford it, their worth it. I've had one for 3 years and would not go back to a CH Products Yoke etc, Those plastic yokes fall off the desk when your'e trying to land a heavy!!Just my view.
  3. InterestingI was getting low ot mid 20's with the 8800 gtx, even in dense airport scenery with AI traffic set to 80%, not sure what I've done recently but that has dropped to mid teens, I think it is drivers ( Nvidia seems to release a drive every three weeks or so, sometimes I download it and test new one out, currently 169.25, but not sure that is as good as two earlier versions) or some setting, I must go back and read David Roch post here at avsim about best settings etc for FSX sp2 with DXT10http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...28207&mode=full

    MyTraffic X Ver. 5.1b - A Question

    At least My Traffic guys are doing something aboue the DX10 issue.GO and check out or ask Flight one Ulitmate Traffic or Just Flight Traffic 2005/x, what they are doing?UT nothing!Just flight, a new version Traffic X due sometime in q2 of 2008, but their 2005 version was faily average, paint jobs were the worse of the 3.I was an UT fan until their attidude towards Dirext X 10, preview.Plenty of info and spport from the deisgners of My Traffic from here.http://forums.simflight.com/viewforum.php?f=4I had My Traffic from early last year and I have paid nothing for Version 5.1B. Just Flight will be sold by the looks of it as a seperate roduct which we will have to pay for and as for UT, well who knows.Also some of us don't have the time to add our own AI, it's very time consuming.If you have no plan to run Vista and DXT 10 capable card, then use UT or My Traffic and they are both fine, but if you want DX10 AI aircraft in my honouable view, go for My Traffic V5.1B
  5. Hi all,Any Dell XPS systems users here, particularly 710 series.I have a Dell XPS-710 which came with a Nvidia 8260 256mb Direct X 10 capable video cardNow the MB of this system has 2 x PCI express cards slots ( oh it also has one PCI 12 express slot, anyone heard of what that is for?.looks like a shorter blue slot version of the PCI 16 express slots.I've been told but others ( mainly Dell support, and some dell XPS users) that I need to use exactly the same video cards for Vista to use both to run Duel monitors.So this configuration will not work.1 Nvidia 8260 card and 1 Nvidia 8800 GTX 746mb card.I was wondering if any Dell XPS systems users here can say if this is correct or not?I know one could connect the two monitors to the two DVI slots on the 8800 card, but why waist the 8260 card?Footnote to this late last year MS released a hot fix for this very issue, but I've not tried it out as it was unclear if it was for different video cards or not.Thanks in advancePhil M
  6. Is it a Direxct X 10 capabale card?Not aware of the one you got, must be ATI new one, as last I heard they only had one DX10 capable card.What Frame rates are you getting with what settings?Nvidia has just released a duel SLI card,If I understand it correctly, that is a duel core video card, put that on top of a Quad core cpu system and I wonder how it compares.However no matter how good the card, if the drivers are not good enough, Vista and DX10 games will not get the full benefit of these cards.CheersPhil M

  8. Hi David and a Happy 2008 to you.I am now running driver version 169.25 WHQL and late yesterday flew a flight of an hour or so, without screen lock up or issues as prevously described.So cross fingers.I'll check out that link to fraps.ThanksPhil M
  9. Yeah I have found many posts at Nvidia forums about same issue or similar in other games. From what I can tell they are DX10 games.The issue then cannot I guess be DX10, but Nvidia drivers.I have contacted Nvidia, but don't hold much hope of an answer, as they have probably been contacted many, many times about same issues.What is FRAPS/DX10? Can't say I have heard of that issue.What driver version are you running David?ThanksPhil M
  10. Here is an example of driver issues and FSX DX10 or whateverCheck out how part of screen is black, that is FSX, yes it's running, I still hear sound and ATC etc, it happened as I turned onto final. This is gettiing so annoyingI know it's a driver issue, as I got a little pop up message from task bar corner near time clock saying driver nvdrrr etc stopped working. OH Great! I tried to cpature message, but it does not stay showing long enough. I'll check my error reports and see if I can find what error message info it says.Come on Nvidia, talk to Aces and give us a driver that ruddy well works!
  11. Hi DavidI'm running Vista Ultuimate 32bit Build 6001Nortons 360No I have not tried any program like Tune up, back in early XP days Nortons used to have a prgram called System works, which would scan your susytem for errors including Registry errors etc.I gather Tune Up is kind of like that.I'll look into it.As one thing I am getting and I have tried 3 drivers from Nvidia from 163.75, 169.06 and the latest 169.25Is sometimes the whole screen goes black except for the message from Vista asking you confirm the operation.Also with FSX full screen mode, yesterday twice when I went out of full screen mode to do something on the web, when I tried to go back to full screen mode, it was strange, it was like half my screen was FSX.This has to be a driver issue I guess.CheersPhil Happy New Year
  12. Now that is the first I heard of that. Interesting.What about the progressive taxi arrows line ?If it's mainly or soley Nvidia, then what are they doing, I think they have released 4 if not 5 drivers since SP2 Accerlation came out and I personally cannot see much difference between them.They have just released a new Video Card I belieave, Called GTX Ultra or something. What is the point if drivers are no good.And how do they get to be WQL certified drivers by MS if they don't work with Drect X 10 fully, makes one wonder.ciaoPhil M
  13. Oh, I hadn't seen that stated before Phil, so 2009 is when FS11 may come out. Okay.There are 3 issue I still have with FSX SP2 and DX10 preview.1/ Is how taxi lines disappaer and the progressive taxi arrow line does not show unless you view form top down mode.The latter is not major issue for me, as being a PPL pilot in real life I can follow ATC taxi instructions, but disappring or flickering taxi lines says to me something is not working correct.I dont feel this is a driver issue, as I have tried 4 Drivers from Nvidia since SP2 accelation came out and none made any difference and I have read AT DXT 10 card users report same issue.2/ The light bloom effect on acft fuselage and lights ( as David R snapshots show in this thread on a earlier post)3/ Jaggered shadow inside Virtual cockpit.If you have dealt with these at your Blog, then sorry in advance, but I have not seen the info or any details on how to fix any of the above.No rush to get back as I know it's holiday time, but when you feel like replying, I would be interested to hear what you say.Happy HolidaysPhil MDell XPS710Intel Quad 6700Nvidia GTX 8800 Driver version 163.75 ( tried two more recent drivers and found them not as good)Vista Ultimate Evalution copy of SP1RC Build 6001
  14. Hi David is O&O better than UltimateDefrag?I've been using that recently, can't say if it helps much compared to Vista's inbulit defreg.Do you have links to it and the diskkeeper software you mentioned?ThanksPhil m
