    Becoming obsessed with FSX smoothness and Directx 10...
  1. Hi flyforever and All, Did reinstalling the stock shaders work for you? I hope this is the right place for this question... Or should I start a new topic? I'm a DX10 convert and will probably never switch back - I understand that everything is a compromise, and I don't think I'm too picky about details, but... While I have Steve's wonderful free 3.2.2, and will be purchasing his DX10 fixer, I too have a water (color) problem. When I fly dawn or day, the water color and effects are absolutely stunning (Steve's 3.2.2, REX E OD's "use this!" water texture), but when I fly dusk or night, the color of the water looks gray. The color of the water doesn't change even when the sky gets darker and darker. I stll have the wave animations and whitecaps, but no reflections except the setting sun's rays (running water on 2x med). I've tried changing the water color texture in REX - plankton, brighness, contrast - and I do see the changes when dawn and day, just not dusk and night. I downloaded and replaced the stock shaders (THANK YOU for your generosity PAUL J!), deleted and had FSX replace those other shader files in appdata/local (cannot remember the exact names as I'm not on my FSX comp). I installed SweetFX last night to see if there would be any change (the water color problem was in place before the installation of SweetFX). Everything looked much more vibrant and alive - the terrain and sky look like a whole new sim to me! Except...for...the...water. Still a boring gray. I hope this is a simple problem to fix, like an easily replaced file. I would really like to avoid a reinstall if possible. Or, I might just avoid flying at dusk and night over water. But where's the fun in that? I love trying to land on a moving carrier at night! I will post a pic tomorrow if that helps. Thank you everyone in advance for your comments and help!
