  1. All my FSX and ORBX stuff is on SSD and i also still get the 6% upon loading and a long wait time. I do have Simstarter NG, does disabling scenery that i don't use worth doing? Wondering if SSD use is really that more beneficial.
  2. Not so much need for tweaking these days. I'm sure most of us have decent rigs now. I don't run any now compared to some years ago with my old PC. Though it could be frustrating it was sort of a hobby in itself then.
  3. I'm sure once Chaseplane is released we will see some EZCA action. Competition and all that ; )
  4. When this happened to me some time back i deleted my Shader/Shader10 files in AppData/Local/Microsoft/FSX. Start up FSX let it rebuild those files and it was back to normal.
  5. Hmmm, i use Opus real weather too and i've yet to test these settings in heavy clouds. If it hits hard i will try using just 4XSSAA. As you say its a shame we don't have 2XSSAA with enabled Edge Detect giving us 6XSSAA : ( That could possibly be my sweet spot on this card HD6570. I did quite alot of testing yesterday using different settings and yes, SSAA is the way to go for a crisper, non shimmer environment. Always keeping the the balance between performance and IQ in mind though : ) Agree on Morphological setting. Tryed that once before and it does not suit FSX one bit. Flush Shader cache is good advice. i once had terrible performance overlooking ocean areas with FPS dipping. Deleted shader folder. Let FSX rebuild again on start up and issue gone. Reading your link makes sense. Thanks. : )
  6. Charles Like most of us i am interested in getting rid of the annoying shimmers that appear too often in FSX, So any setting suggested i will try it out, being mindful of any FPS impact and interference to my carefully balanced FSX settings ; ) I switched SFO to OFF and whilst using SSAA i find that it does the job. I find that keeping SSAA with Edge Detect12X is ok. Whats the opinion on using Edge Detect? Impact on performance seems negligible to me. I used to have MSAA active in CCC but really the FPS difference does not seem to change much using SSAA, surprisingly, perhaps a couple of FPS less. I recently reverted to using AF via FSX ( still not sure which is best method here as does not seem to do much difference for me either way. I'm using HD6570, probably less power than most on here. Anyhow, interesting settings you mention. Thanks for the info : )
  7. Nice to see some ATI interest here. My settings are similar too. I find it a good balance. I do have Surface Format Optimisation ON so will try with it off. Does it make that much difference then? ATI cards are not that bad for FSX. Not as bad as some would suggest anyway.
  8. Ok then i've installed airport along with Photoreal with FTX active too. Photoreal blends ok, not brilliant, some roads, fields etc out of alignment but on the whole, as a package using these three add-ons it looks pretty darn good on my system. Good work by all. Love the Aussie stuff! : ) Once extracted, You should create a Gold Coast YBCG folder with the Scenery & Texture folders within, then add it too your Add-On folder. Start FSX and go to scenery library. Click add a scenery. Add it to the list. Place it in an appropiate position in your library. Then go fly. Thats what i do anyway. Seems to work ok.
  9. Not tryed it yet but does it still work ok with FTX as well? The photoreal i mean.
  10. Thanks for the HU. Downloading now. Great to see some Aussie stuff : )
  11. Have you mentioned this on their forum. They are always open to suggestions. You can't go wrong with an A2A aircraft powered by Accu-sim.
  12. Lol. Me too. Although its fair to say that i have some add-ons i don't use now but thats not to say i regret buying them. I do have a nagging feeling though that they should get used more as i paid for them. Time is limited and i can only use so much of it.
  13. Now the FSX version is out this is just a reminder :P Really enjoying this aircraft at the moment and would be pleased to see this one done.
