    Early days: Microsoft FS2.1 > FS4 > FS5.1 > FS98 > FS2002 > FS2004

    This days: FSX and AeroflyFS

    Testing: MS Flight - Fly! Legcay - Flight Gear - X-Plane 10 Demo
  1. What about 'FSPS FSX FIBER ACCELERATOR'? According to this test 'it works':
  2. I know this should be posted in the "Monitors, Videocards and Drivers" forum so read it here : http://www.avsim.com...er-crashes-fsx/
  3. Same problem here. Until now i NEVER had a driver issue for the last 7 years, and now the Nvidia 361.43 drivers freeze my Windows 7 computer with Nvidia Geforce 570 videocard completly! Only a hard reset did help, and now after rolling back tot the previous 359.06 drivers everything seems to be ok again. I found also several warnings about this in the Geforce forum : https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/906001/driver-version-361-43-and-flight-simulator-x/?offset=5

    Your age?

    I am a 57 year young simmer, but i started 'playing' FS2 somewhere in the eighties on a IBM compatible with a 4.75 Mhz (!) 8088 processor, 360 Kilobyte floppy drives and a 4 colour screen ...... But it had a great framerate: almost 2-3 fps !! :hi:
  6. Johan every time i make a landing i realize how much the realism in FSX ground handling has improved since your patch. I think you deserve a kind of 2012 award for that ! Thanks again and merry Chistmas.
  7. Jetblst, i just saw that you have a AMD Phenom II X4 965 Quad Core at 3.4 Ghz. In that case NickN's tuning is probably the best you can do, since Word Not Allowed's tuning is more for the latest 2 CPU generations. And of course there's also the Bojote's Automatic Tuning Tool: http://www.venetubo.com/fsx.html FSX will always have stutters, even with the latest Intel I7 Ivy Bridge processor overclocked to 4.5 Ghz or more and a Nvidia GTX-680 videocard, FSX Word Not Allowed-tuned to perfection, NvidiaInspector with the best settings, small microstutters are reported. Laminar's P3D gives the same framerate but is smoother: look for tests at Word Not Allowed's site. PS: what i said about sliders and settings was also for a more highend PC, so you have to experiment and have your settings lower.
  8. Have you ever tried Word Not Allowed's Tuning Guide ? http://#####...hardware-guide/ About sliders and settings : I take scenery complexity and autogen density: Very Dense Water : High 2x NO Light Bloom or Scenery Shadows ! Road Traffic: 25% or less ! Jets: 30% and GA: 40% Mostly 29-30 frames and very bad weather: 24-29 only minor stutters. Minimum: runway KLAX or KJFK in stormy weather, virtual cockpit of the 737 NG : 16
  9. Many thanks Dudly, this is a nice encouragement for the FSX community !
  10. The link for FSUIPC4859j.zip (latest version: j ) is OK at http://fs-mp.com/sim1/ You'll find everything also at the Peter Dowson support forums here : http://forum.simflig...pdated-modules/
  11. Just to mention to Pete Dowson / Johan Dees that the link for FSUIPC4859i.zip (the i - version) at http://fs-mp.com/sim1/ doesn't work anymore. And thanks again for all the good work, FSX is much more realistic and more fun now ! :Hug:
  12. Guys aren't we sliding (or skidding) slightly off topic now? I am so happy that my favorite GA aircraft don't behave anymore like the sledge of Santa Claus during the landing. :p0504:
  13. Great ! Can't wait for an Accelerator version update ! :yahoo: Johan, yes there's something wrong at your site: http://fs-mp.com/sim1/ with: sim1_ACCEL_121203.zip It doesn't load.
  14. I just dowloaded the patch for my FSX Gold Edition pack and installed it. http://fs-mp.com/sim1/ I made a dozen landings with my favorite Carenado Baron 58. One word: FANTASTIC !!! On a dry runway the aircraft doesn't skid anymore like a bad landing on skis in the snow. AMAZING ! The landing feels much more realistic and controllable. I shall test it also in rain and snow and with other planes now. Johan_Dees it looks like you have a real winner here. To me it feels like one of the most important improvements ever made to FSX in the order of SP1, 2 / Acceleration and the Word Not Allowed Tuning Guide. Thank you so much !
