  1. Hi Flighters,Is anybody else experiencing strange textures/corruption on the edges of tarmac/dirt areas of airfields and airports like in the screenie below:Any thoughts/ideas/clues as to what this might be or what's causing it?Thanks!
  2. I have been working through getting FSX to run well on my new system: ASUS Maximus VIII Extreme mb i7 6700k (OC'ed to 4.6ghz) GTX980 4gb video card 64gb memory(yea, I know.. overkill) Triple-Monitor(5760x1080) with a 4th touchscreen I am using the FSX CD + Acceleration Pack version. And I am running it as Dx 10 using Steve's DX10 Fixer. I have gone through Steve's 'How To' guide and set all the settings in my fsx.cfg. My gpu is maxed out at 99% most of the time, and I have my Affinity set to 254(1111 1110) and it seems to be using all cores except 0(Which is for Windows). So, that seems like it should be all ok, right? This seems to happen most when the view is of a long distance away. In the cockpit it doesn't happen too much. It happens more outside, and often the blue background sky goes black. I was thinking this might be because my graphics card was getting maxed out? So, I turned down the AA in NVI and also set Limited the Framerate to 30(aka 31 in fsx.cfg). None of this helped. So, now I was wondering if maybe I need to change my FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION=0.15 to something different. But I'm kind of shooting blind here. I don't really know.. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thanks! Snacko The graphic corruption does not show up when I do a screen print. So, I had to take pics with my phone:
  3. Hi gang, I was reading the DX10 How To.doc and in there it suggests 'Download CCC - this version only - v12.8 - 12.11'. My current version is 2014. 1120.2123.38423. Can I install this version of CCC on its own or does it involve me having to install the whole graphic card driver suite ? Is it possible to make this work at all by removing the CCC FSX profile - and making one in RadeonPro instead ? I am now getting wierd graphical corruption, glitches, flashes, spikes etc - and I have changed nothing. All I was doing is testing how things perform at various airports etc. Having read some of the DX10.How.To. and thinking back to something Steve mentioned am sure it is my CCC causing this. This happens anywhere now in FSX, any area / region I mean. I appreciate I could spend hours trying to find out for myself, but I hoped it would be ok to ask first. Thank you in anticipation. Terry
  4. Hi All, Just wanted to share a few hours of pain with you I had when installing Alaska. Actually it wasn't too bad in the end thanks to some helpful internet folks, and I think the tips I've picked up proved very useful so I've started this topic so the faithful can refer to should future DLC's cause any concerns. Just wanted to say I've had no issues at all with installations in Flight up until the Alaska pack, maybe I was unlucky with this, there isn't too much in the forums so hopefully these events are pretty rare - but downloading large files always has the potential to cause issues. Microsoft Flight has detected a corrupted installation and will now exit :shok: Yeah, so some of you may have seen this, if you haven't you don't know what your missing! Of course this means the Flight install has been corrupted. This happened during the install of the Alaskan Wilderness Pack for me. After much tinkering I decided to remove Flight altogether, but that meant at the time downloading Flight again, the title update and all DLC... YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO THIS - so a few simple steps now could save you hours later on. How to fix a corrupted installation: :dance: Reinstall the main Flight package. Install the latest title update. Remove recently added DLC using the Games for Windows Client. Check Flight install (playing the game for 5 minutes usually is enough to verify if the install is ok). Download DLC again. If you still have issues it means one of the DLC components (there are 7 with Alaska) has been corrupted. In this case what I had to do was delete using the Games for Windows Client the latest DLC downloads and then install each one again but checking the Flight install each time. As it happens with me it seemed the Alaska Share Resources was corrupted so when downloading this again it fixed the Flight installation. Another thing which may have caused me issues was the initial download Alaska Wilderness Pack the first time round didn't install first, because when going back to Flight before this had finished it asked me to download the others files and one of them finished before the download for the Alaska Wilderness Pack. I can't say if that caused any issues but it probably wasn't a good thing. Preparing for a corruption Removing Flight base package Ok removing the base package does absolutely nothing with the DLC so it's completely safe. You profile is taken online so you lose none of your achievements. Perform the following to remove the Flight application - thanks Bill! (n4gix). Uninstall Microsoft Flight from the Add/Remove Programs screen Delete the following directories (if they exist). Navigate to them by pasting the paths given below in the address bar of Windows Explorer: %UserProfile%\My Documents\Flight %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Flight %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\XLive\DLC\4d5308d2 %AppData%\Microsoft\Flight Installing Flight base package To make the reinstall steps above easier to follow you can capture the main Flight download from the Games for Windows Downloads folder prior to clicking on the install. The other DLC packs install automatically but the main package needs a prompt. Copy something like the file shown below before picking install to another folder and unpack. The GfW Client Settings page will show you where your downloads are if you've forgotten. The archived download will look something like 97FBC10CAA35C555C40DEA648CE345228FAA543C_05E79A5A-59BF-472C-B563-1A4BBD1ACD35_1 For the title update do a search for the msi package however if you don't do this straight away when installing the title update, the file will eventually be deleted - as this is smaller though re-downloading is less of an issue... dir TitleUpdate.msi /s Copy parent folder for 'Content' containing the TitleUpdate banary to a safe location. i.e. as below this would be 4d5308d2. ..\4d5308d2\Content\TitleUpdate.ms After installation you will be prompted to redownload your online profile so make sure you are logged into Windows Live. That’s about it, you can now continue to redownload the DLC and hopefully a second time it will be ok... Still no luck with the install... :help: If the install still doesn't work. The Game for Windows Client writes out a log file at the following location - but also check the Windows Event Viewer as well. C:\Users\Ultimate\AppData\Local\Microsoft\GFWLive\Install\Logs Issues with updates can sometimes also occur when Flight has crashed or is still running. Make sure Flight is shutdown before reinstalling the main package, title updates and even DLC. I.e. use GfW client. If you still can't get any DLC working, then it may be another issue with your computer or even the DLC itself. If it gets this far then it can't be a bad idea to look online or post something within this topic and I'm sure the technical wizards on here will be happy to assist. Good luck and enjoy Alaska! :yahoo: Cheers, Dave.
