  1. Carlos,Press the button to the right of the Driver Version. It has a wrench and screwdriver depicted on it.
  2. It's hard for the machine to keep up when supersampling is being used due to the inherent method it uses to produce the finished image. Most computers won't have the cpu, gpu and/or memory bandwidth to allow it to run smoothly.In your case, you've covered all the bases :(

  4. It's doubtful that you'll see an increase in performance with the CPU you currently have. And you'll only be able to go into DX10 if you change to a DX10-capable videocard.Regards,Jim Karn
  5. The only way to get them to work is to use a modified .inf file to install on anything other than the 9600. Using a modded .inf removes WHQL status.If you're interested, the modded file can be found here: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=254119 Regards,Jim Karn
  6. Correct, as pointed out previously, the Flight1 repair tool works very intuitively in both FS9 and FSX: http://www.flight1software.com/files/FS_Registry_Repair.exe Regards,Jim Karn
  7. Phil Taylor explains the process here: http://blogs.msdn.com/ptaylor/archive/2007...ress-space.aspx Quoting the relevant section: Note this switch needs to be used with care, since PCI-Express maps the entire address space of the graphics card into the OS address space. If you set the app to use 3G with a 768m graphics card, that leaves 256m for the OS. A better setting is 2560, eg 2.5G, since that leaves 768m for the OS with a 786m graphics card. Much more reasonable.Regards,Jim Karn
  8. You'll also need to install SP1 and SP2 for FSX to be >2GB aware. If you don't install SP2, you'll need to make FSX >2GB aware by following these directions: http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=searchDisregard the Vista information in that post as it doesn't apply to you.Regards,Jim Karn
  9. Hi Stefan,See this post to append your boot.ini: http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...8&page=5#405891Ensure you have the latest DirectX: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=enSet your page file to 4096MB or greater.Regards,Jim Karn
  10. Dirk,Here's the thread with the relevant information: http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=searchRegards,Jim Karn
  11. Thank you, David. That presentation was nicely done.Regards,Jim Karn
  12. Hi Jay,If you want to take full advantage of the 4GB RAM that you have, and not have to put up with OOM errors, x64 is the way to go. As long as your hardware devices have drivers that are compatible with Vista x64, you should have no problem.The Program Files (x86) folder is where native 32-bit programs get installed. The regular Program Files folder handles 64-bit programs. It's best to keep FSX out of either. Vista permissions create problems when editing files in these folders. You're better off dedicating a separate folder for FSX e.g. C:FSX. And, turn off UAC.Regards,Jim Karn
  13. Looks like you're either short of video memory, or your videocard can't handle the shaders.Regards,Jim Karn
  14. Hi Andrew,Once installed, get SP1 here: http://www.fsinsider.com/downloads/Pages/F...rvicePack1.aspxAnd SP2 here: http://www.fsinsider.com/downloads/Pages/F...-SP2Update.aspxLook over the forum for varying tweaks and their related issues many experience. If you can run SP2, you'll get better performance as many of the problems have been addressed by ACES. It's a never-ending struggle :-) Regards,Jim Karn
  15. i Ron,You're not alone. After a number of driver iterations, the problem remains. I see exactly the same issue in the cargo version as well as the inability to click on the center pedestal in a couple of the camera views in the vc.Vista Ultimate x64, E6700, nVidia 8800GTS 640MB now using 169.28 drivers.Regards,Jim Karn
