    My FSX farewell

    Tired of graphic issues, spending more time tweaking that flying, stutters, having to trade eye candy for smoothness. My 4770k running at 4.5GHZ and gtx780 with an SSD for FSX surely helped but still... Loved some features of X-Plane 10 but missed a bunch more from FSX, and vicecersa. Theres no perfect flight simulation software as of 2014. I recently decided to sell my trackir 5, yoke and rudder pedals on ebay because it was just sitting there.. Perhaps I will be back one day if Microsoft truly decides to make a new Flight Simulation Program, (aka not another microsoft flight) I have heard some news about it, and I think nobody else can give us the best simulator. FSX was the best thing in 2006, but lets say it's now outdated. Computers these days are 16 times more powerful than they were 8 years ago according to Moore's law, so I will be back, when a better more optimized simulator is made..
  2. Some bloom and/or HDR without bleaching the wings or body of the aircraft, but that enhances how clouds look. More or less.
  3. Interested in DX10 presets, ENB looked goon in DX9, but now that I have switched (and btw best anti aliasing ever Adi thank you very good work), I need a good preset. So far I can't get it right.
  4. Ladies and gents!!! After tuning it up I gotta say that.........It looks and feels amazing!!! I got blown away by how this thing looks especially at night with the HDR effect. WOW! All the sliders set at around 80% with the shadow detail at 3d on aircraft, HDR on with 2xSSAA + FXAA anti-aliasing (higher has a high performance impact, while FXAA only has too many flickers for my taste), clouds 85% and I get around 30-40 fps, I gotta add that my resolution is 1440p. 3D Cockpit shadows have some jaggies and I dont know how to minimize this. And I love the sloped runways very nice. I'm definitely pulling the trigger..
  5. Thank you all. Well I downloaded the demo and cranked all up. 10fps wow. AlthoughI didnt have enough time to play with it. I activated HDR and put the reg anti aliasing to the max and later I read that they conflict each other impacting the frame rate. Like I said I havent had enough time to test it but when I get home I will work with it. I will follow this article http://www.x-plane.com/?article=setting-the-rendering-options-for-best-performance to try to achieve around 30fps in my test. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thank you for your response. Truth is I sim a lot in tubeliners. Doing 2-6 hr hauls. However I find myself doing GA as well sometimes so I enjoy both. Are they releasing xplane 10.3? I dont get what you mean by GSN430/530 units. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Tired about FSX crashes, micro-stutters, low FPS etc. So im thinking about giving xplane a try with their demo. I got a very good system 4770k paired with gtx 780 and 16gb of fast ram so I guess I could crank all sliders to the max. Is this Demo going to give me a clear idea regarding graphics, smoothness and flight dynamics of what xplane is going to be if I buy it? What are its pros and cons versus FSX?

    Oh... gotta clean my lens!

    Tested DX10 + Sweetfx and working. Thanks Gabriel, keep up the good work!!!

    Sweetfx 1.5 is released

    Bump for Jose's comment. A good preset for sweetfx? I would like to transition to DX10 because my system handles FSX very well but OOMs are present. The only think that has kept me from doing it is ENB. With ENB I get stunning visuals, but I can't seem to get same results with SFX. At least I haven't found a good preset yet.

    5.0 Ghz - Wow

    I bet my 4770k beats that thing when it comes to FSX. And thats saving like 700 bucks.
  11. Thank you folks. The difference in screen size is not a problem. I want to hear from some of you who upgraded to 1440p from a 1080p screen and what advantages or disadvantages it gives in FSX. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk 2
  12. Anyone? BTW I just invested in a 1440p 27"PLS monitor, got a good deal shipped from Korea. 6ms response time and overclockable up to 120Hz. I was sitting too close to my 39" 1080p HDTV, I hope the new monitor makes a change on the experience. Any thoughts? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk 2
  13. Hi, just wondering if a 1440p 27in monitor will make a difference over the 1080p 39in HDTV I currently use for FSX
