  1. This topic has been moved by the moderator of this forum. It can be found at:http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...&topic_id=29466
  2. Yeah, I have a similar system and my FS9 framerates are always at 40 FPS, which is what I have it set to in the display options.
  3. Well, it seems I have fixed the problem. All I did was delete a folder in my Temp folder and viola - problem solved. Weird...
  4. How do I do that? As far as I know, I've always been the administrator on my computer. I didn't have a problem the first time I installed ASV6.
  5. When I tried to open ASV6.5, it gave me an error. So I uninstalled it and tried reinstalling it. But my reinstall suddenly quits and the 'Internal Error 2755' pops up and I'm left with no ASV6.5! Anyone know how I can fix this so I can start flying with great weather again?
  6. Make sure that the AA option within FS9's 'Display' settings is NOT checked. Then try it with the 'enhance in game aa' unchecked in Nhancer as well, and see if that works.
  7. Yes, and yes.You can go to the nhancer website for more info.http://www.nhancer.com/
  8. Like Trelane, I am unwilling to uninstall Nhancer just to get screenshots. However, I do happen to have a screenshot of FS9 I took when I first began this hobby and did not realize what AA was or even how to apply it! So, here is a shot of what the game looks like WITHOUT proper Anti-Aliasing settings:Before - notice the jaggy edges, especially noticeable on the top line of the airplane body, and in the taxiway sign: http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/176309.jpgAnd here is a more recent shot with my 8800 card and Nhancer settings applied - notice how much smoother the lines are - straight as an arrow!:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/176310.jpgHope these help to show what FS9 looks like with or without AA properly applied.
  9. With Nvidia cards (8800 series, in my case), FS9 would not render AA at all. Nhancer fixes this by eliminating Nvidia's profile for FS9 which did not include an option to allow AA, and allowing you to create a new profile that will.
  10. I wanted to build my own system, but I was too scared and ignorant of putting in a water coolant system myself. So, I bought an Alienware instead. :D
  11. I'm sorry to hear that you can't fly for real. I realize that a lot of people have always dreamed to fly commercially, but can't because of physical or some other limitations. And for that reason, I hope I never take the fulfillment of my dream for granted.
  12. Hey thanks! I'm really excited about it, for obvious reasons! I will get paid to fly for the Air Force!!! Yay! And they pay for all my training. People have their opinions, but I think going the military route to become a pilot is a lot better deal than doing it yourself via the civilian way. Unless, of course, you're just stinkin' rich...
  13. $6000?!? I got my "real world" private pilot license for $4500!!!
  14. I found this tip while looking on the Nvidia forums. Very helpful indeed and seems to have solved my graphics dilemma with FS9. http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=38921"I think... a friend had the exact same issue of not being able to get AA in FS9 and FSX with his new 8800 card:I believe the reason is due to the driver profiles for FS9 and FSX that already exist in nvapps.xml when you install the driver. Since the newer driver versions, they've been setting an "AA:EnhanceOnly" flag for both sims. This was causing the exact issue many of you describe here where you can't get any AA.I successfully fixed this on my friend's machine by doing the following:1. Download a copy of nHancer from www.nhancer.com and install it2. Run it and on the main window, find the two FS profiles and remove them. You'll notice both have a greyed out "Enhance in-game AA setting" checked on the Enhancements tab.3. Create new FS9 and FSX profiles, being sure to point them to the FS9.EXE and the FSX.EXE respectively in the lower portion below the list of profiles.4. Now set your stuff on the right side of the screen in the tabs: I use the following settings on my 7800GTX:Enhancements Tab:AA:Combined 8XSGamma correctionAF: 16XOptimizations Tab:Texture Filtering - High QualityTrilinear Opt - OffAniso. sample opt. - OffNegative LOD BIAS - Clamp (really important for eliminating blurries and shimmering)Within FS - set the AA box to unchecked and the filtering to Trilinear in FS9 and Anisotropic in FSX. This *should* make AA work for you guys..."
