  1. Hey Zmak, Thanks again for your time mate. Copied the exact settings with Rex Overdrive running, NO traffic at all. ( all traffic sliders to the left). Dont have any payware/freeware heavy aircraft so used the stock standard Boeing 747-400 Daytime, set on runway. with GROUND SCENERY SHADOWS toggled OFF. the Frame doubles to 45FPS. (22 toggled on) Huge difference. However none of the PC's hardware is being pushed at all, and there's like 80% in reserve! Makes no sense...? (PS is there any decent freeware heavy aircraft links?)
  2. I had a crack at changing the affinity mask to 1364.... (I seen this number somewhere here on the forum) to spread the load over the cpu/cores.. this seemed to work. BUT didnt improve the frame rate.... Maybe its not a hardware issue, because its not using the PC's full resources... memory 50% the SSD hard drive is hardly breaking a sweat. And the GPU load sits around 20% as shown maybe a software issue throttling back the Frames some how...???? any suggestions?
  3. This is what Im typically seeing after downloading a Cpu monitor... core 2 seems to be doing the majority of the work.... You have ticked DX10 in fsx right? yep
  4. Ah yep i have steves DX10 fixer... Anything there that should be checked/unchecked to put more of the load onto the GPU?
  5. Thanks for all your help and time zmak. Appreciate it. If you think of anything else please let me know. I will adjust those settings you recommend and keep fiddling about... Surely someone has had this issue. I did uncheck a lot of scenery back to default and was pinging 100 FPS, but as I gradually added again, the numbers dropped and nothing really stood out as the culprit. Still the load of the GPU sits around 20% with the Cpu doing all the work

  7. Thats interesting, re. scenery complexity... Changed the water effects from low 2x to none, maybe 2 FPS better... no significant change... If I change the scenery complexity from 2 normal back to 1 sparse, it doubles the FPS from ~15 to ~30. But come on... surely thats not right ey.. Another thought... would this have anything to do with "add on scenery" maybe?? Has anyone else experienced this? maybe my scenery library is in the wrong order causing the Cpu to work harder? I have various add on scenery as well as payware scenery like orbx, airports/ vector/ global etc. Any possibility this is the problem?
  8. Thanks for the reply pracines, Yea, ive adjusted the settings back and forth using this pdf guide, but still not getting the FPS. It does seem to have a lot to do with the scenery complexity slider draining cpu power... The gpu (geforce 1080) runs stock standard at approx 20% so its got heaps in reserve..... Ive tried different affinity mask settings also...(any suggestions here) none seem to make a significant difference. Watching the resource monitor, its definitely the cpu under load. Maybe look into overclocking but with an 8700K i wouldnt have thought this would be needed. Cheers
  9. Hey Zmak, yea it was a an orbx melbourne payware airport, but even so flying around its not a lot better.... "Delete the fsx.cfg and let the sim build a new one and test again." Yep Ive had a crack at this. for a pretty decent GPU and CPU setup, its seems ordinary for the scenery complexity slider to be set at 2 or normal and the frame rate this bad.. Ive done some work testing the sliders, this one seems to cause the main issue, Adjusting image complexity from 1 to 2 in the cfg, halves the Frames per second.... Thanks for the reply
  10. Damlays Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I have a similar one on this thread "New PC, Fresh Install, Flying around AUS" https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/506423-new-pc-fresh-install-flying-around-aus/#comment-3591348
  11. FRAME RATES getting murdered. can anyone help me with this? Ive tried many tweaks with fsx cfg file, dialed back scenery sliders and more. But still struggling with mid teen numbers with the scenery complexity set at sparse or in the config file image complexity 2. Running a fairly high end pc. i7 8700k Geforce gtx 1080 Looking at the graphs the gpu seems to be doing it with ease but the cpus are working pretty hard... Any suggestions are welcome. Even somewhere to start... Cheers
  12. Just an Update, Added FTX Global last week, must say I haven't spotted a major difference really. Maybe once I add FTX Global Vector, I'll notice changes more. Question Ive been looking into REX to add some more realism, but got into a little confusion. Whats the difference, (other than the weather engine) between REX Essential PLUS w/OverDrive and REX 4 | Texture Direct HD ?? They seem to be very similar in their descriptions http://www.flightsimstore.com/index.php?cPath=2_82_98 Can they be used alongside each other? Are they worth the effort? Much damage to Frame Rates? Any help greatly appreciated Cheers
  13. Getting there, upgraded to dx10 and used Steve's DX10 fixer, added some Orbx Trees, next FTX global and some airports
  14. Thanks again for the quick replies, I'm looking into the Melbourne photo real scenery and ORBX Melbourne Moorabbin and Avalon airports as we speak. Are there any terrain add ons for Australia like GEX or Ultimate Terrain, I've done some searches but seem to be coming to a dead end. Cheers
