    FS9 problems with latest Windows 10 update

    It should be possible to let the GPU pass through the underlying OS so it has a "direct connection" to the virtual machine. At least that's what I learned from watching a Linus tech tips video where they split a monster PC into two so to speak, running 2 virtual machines plus a server or something, and they saw hardly any difference in performance compared to a native system. Oh wait... I think the thing was that the virtual machine(s) need their own dedicated GPU, so you should set your normal OS to use the onboard graphics in your CPU and set the virtual machine to use your dedicated graphics card. Have you tried that? I might give it a shot just for fun, despite my mere 4-core CPU.

    FS9 problems with latest Windows 10 update

    I believe the best way to keep enjoying old software in the future is Virtualization. With the current and future multicore CPU's you can run older operating systems and applications in a virtual machine at very close to native speed. I haven't tried it out yet because I'm still using an old 2500k 4-core CPU, but when I upgrade I will start looking into it more.
  3. I think the Terrain SDK for FS9 has Imagetool included. Just google "fs9 sdk" and you should find a working link.

    Countering the Shimmering

    There IS another way to reduce the shimmering, and that is to add mipmaps to textures that don't have them as default. It works wonders with cockpit textures as well (panels, gauges), as you can see in this video I made a while back: You must watch it full screen to really see the effect. The quality of the textures will be slightly degraded because they will be re-copmpressed, but that's well worth it in my oppinion. Just remember to make backups of your textures before you start experimenting. As you see you can have an almost shimmer free experience without any SGAA at all. You'll need dxtbmp (freeware) or Imagetool (comes with the SDK) to modify the textures. And yes, a higher resolution monitor will help as well. I recently went from 1080p to 1440p and I would never go back.
  5. I recently got a 27" 1440p gsync monitor that my old GTX970 runs just fine in most games. With the higher resolution you can use less antialiasing and performance is more or less preserved. No need to upgrade your 980.

    Timeframes are not that important. Frametimes however...

    Antialias in Full Screen Mode - FIXED!

    Whaddaya know... this really works!!! Thank you thank you thank you! I turned AA off within FS9 again and set up the nVidia Inspector profile like I used to in Win7. Override the application setting, 16xS AA + 8x Supersampling and it looks stunning! 4 x Multisampling + 4 x SGSS also works as before, but I find that 16xS + 8 x Supersampling gives the best result on my GTX970. Who knows what other hidden treasures are yet undiscovered.

    Site Update Tonight

    Maybe you can improve the recent topics so that you get a hint of what forum section each topic is posted in when hovering with the mouse over the links. I've suggested this before and without this function the whole recent topics area is pretty much pointless.

    Anti Aliasing - Constant Shimmering

    You have antialiasing mode set to "Enhance the application setting" but you haven't set how to enhance it. You have that set to "Application-controlled / Off". Set both to "Application controlled" so P3D controls all the AA. Then try a lower SSAA setting in P3D as suggested above.

    Reshaded FS9

    There is no specific reshade for FS9. You choose which application (game) you want to reshade when running the installer. After switching to Windows 10 I can't get it to work in FS9 anymore though :(

    Windows 10 --Ugggg

    I also recently switched to Win10 and was worried that there would be issues, but so far I haven't had any. Only difference is antialiasing need to set differently from what I was used to in Win7 and nVidia Inspector. Now I have to activate antialiasing within FS9, and use "Enhance the Application Setting" in Inspector. I use 16xS + 8x Supersampling (GTX970). Looks great and FPS are at least as good as on Win7. Can't get re-shade working though, which is a pity, because that looked really nice.

    FS9- humming sound?

    No, you still have control over this. I use nvidia Inspector for my game profiles, and if I set my FS9 profile to force vsync OFF and I set unlimited frames in FS9, then it pumps out as many frames as it can. If you have a nvidia card I can recommend setting your vsync to "fast sync". It eliminates tearing and allows fps above your monitors refresh rate. This is as close to gsync you can get without a gsync monitor.

    Bad Graphics with 7700K & GTX1080

    Nothing wrong with the graphics. These recommendations about locking fps to 20 have to stop. Utter nonsense, and from a moderator at that.

    FS9 no AA in fullscreen

    I just went from Win7 to Win10 (Fall Creators Update) and installed FS9 from scratch again. I also had no AA in full screen mode, but enabling AA inside FS9 and setting Inspector to enhance the application settings works. I set 4x Multisampling and 4x Sparse Grid Supersampling and it looks fine to me. I also set the anisotropic filtering the same old way, User Defined 16x.

    FS9 frozen on splash screen

    My guess is an aircraft texture that's in a format FS9 doesn't understand, so it crashes. Try moving the recently installed aircraft outside your aircraft folder and see if that helps.
