  1. Hey everyone, I've been off the forums for years now and just recently decided to get back into the simulation world as I joined flight school and just this week finished my private with 50 hours! I'm super excited about that and on the long road to CFII and MEI! Anyways, I have had the same PC for years now, dating back to 2010. I was always limited by performance and it seemed to be that I had a integrated graphics card on board my Dell Inspiron 580. It has 6 GB of ram 1333MHz and a I3-530 at 2.93GHz. Now, just recently I upgraded my GPU to the best thing I could get (to my knowledge) without upgrading the PSU; the AMD Radeon 7750. Best 50 bucks i've ever spent. Anyway, getting to the saucy details... So I fiddled with the settings, endlessly... Read every guide I could find, did my own testing for about a month now with endless frustration... So I finally decided to reformat my PC, re-install only the essentials for Flight Simulator X, with my few addons, etc and kept my settings nearly factory on the AMD control panel. I tried overclocking the GPU, which ultimately made things more unstable, even if I could sustain the system without a crash. With everyone's opinions about tweaking the FSX config and all, I tried all that, and MY personal experience was that they were utterly useless; for the most part. FSX Configuration file: HIGHMEMFIX=1 WideViewAspect=True FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION=.44 TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT=40 LOD_RADIUS=4.500000 (Might bump it up to 6.500000) I'll go ahead and post my settings so everyone can see. As of now, 60 FPS locked seems to work very very smooth, almost always locked at around 59-60. Keep in mind I do not have a SSD, I simply have FSX installed in the default x86 Program Files location... Even then, texture loading seems to be no problem with the Fiber Fraction tweak. Below are some screenshots for your use. Disclaimer: Results will vary As we can see, I could bump up some settings here and there but this was just an example as to what we're getting as of now. Addons here are GEX UTX FSG2010 REX clouds and FSGRW. Obviously this is a default aircraft but the PMDG 737NGX was pulling roughly the same in the VC, just a tad lower, and the same 59-60 external view.
  2. What you wanna do is: Before anything, go to the site that ronzie posted and download the .dll and place it in your sys32 and syswow64 folders. 1. Press Start on the bottom left of your screen2. Type in cmd in the search bar, wait for it to pop up, right click it, and select run as admin.3. Now, type Cd \windows\syswow64 and press the enter key on your keyboard.4. Now, the prompt will change to C:\WINDOWS/syswow64>5. Now, RIGHT after the > with no spaces, type regsvr32 /u msstdfmt.dll and press the enter key on your keyboard. (IGNORE WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT ENTER MISSING NAME HERE).6. Now, after you've pressed enter, you'll get a little pop-up in a blue box saying that unregister was successful. Now you want to register it so you type regsvr32 msstdfmt.dll and press the enter key on your keyboard. (IGNORE WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT ENTER MISSING NAME HERE).7. Now, you should get a pop-up in a blue box saying that the register was successful. Enjoy!
  3. Do the above ^ FSPA works for me but it was getting a little old so I upgraded :) There is another program from Hi-Fi Simulations though that's called X Pax and it's amazing!
  4. Hey there ThunderBird, simple solution to this prolem if you are using some sort of rudder pedals is to simply press both brake pedals ALL the way down. This should de-activate the auto-braking and let you slow down as intended. I hope it works. Keep me updated!
  5. So all those lines i have to add under the proper [ ]? So under [GRAPHICS], I would add the line right under the title which would be [GRAPHICS] I would put HIGHMEMFIX=1?
  6. Go into your settings and one of the tabs are "Aircraft" I believe, well in there, make sure you have "Landing Lights illuminate the ground" checked. Just out of thought, make sure you have the landing lights on as well! :(
