  1. Hi, I've been busy completing the new autogen lights for FS9 EVO. Almost done! The lights are integrated into the textures and thus do not displace autogen. They are also compatible with UT although I keep UT Road lights to the large roads for a better look and more autogen. The screenshots show day vs. night or dusk shots of the same area. Sascha

  3. Hey all, I'm looking for some advice on how to improve performance with FS9. I'm currently running Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit via Bootcamp on a mid-2012 Macbook Pro (retina). Here are my specs: Processor: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7 Memory: 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Graphics: Nvidia GT 650M I generally run several addons while flying... Active Sky Evolution (using REX Overdrive textures) UltimateTerrain, GE Pro, and Terrain Mesh Google Chrome (for various charts and the like) PFPX EFASS (an electronic flight bag of sorts) Bandicam (for recording gameplay) FSinn (for when flying on VATSIM) From what I've read, it's my understanding that my machine should be able to handle all this without any major frames/performance hit(s). Granted my information is anecdotal (reading various message boards, viewing users' experiences with similar rigs), but I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say that my system ought to be able to manage all this. Just today I overclocked my GPU. Here are screenshots of my current Nvidia Inspector settings: In addition to that, I also downloaded and installed Razer GameBooster, and distributed FS9's workload across my 8 processing cores. My performance seems a bit better, particularly when on the ground. I still see the occasional frames-hit, but overall things do seem a bit improved. Furthermore, I find things are relatively smooth for the majority of the time, however when I'm entering a resource-intensive area, I find a take a hit in performance and have a locking/freezing/juttery (for lack of a better term) type of effect. I cannot tell if it's a frames hit, or something entirely different. The framerate will decrease, but the effect is strange. It should be noted that this is worse when recording via Bandicam than when not. With that said, once I'm immersed within the "dense" area, my frames level back out and seem to do fairly well. It seems to be an issue with the speed at which information is being transferred. I also find that the performance hits seem to be variable. There is certain scenery that will result in a rather big hit on performance one day, but will have much less influence on performance the next day. Obviously performance depends on weather and other variables, so I don't know if this is relevant. Perhaps the most interesting thing of all is that I found my CPU and GPU usage never exceeded 50%'ish with all my various addons running, and with Bandicam recording. My GPU usage would hover between 40-50%, whilst my CPU usage would be somewhere around 30-40%, and would spike to 50-55% when entering a more densely packed area. I'm not entirely sure how to interpret this, beyond the fact that it seems my machine isn't being pushed all that hard. Any ideas? I've tried defragmenting my disk, but it would seem my HD is an SSD, and therefore cannot be defragmented. My only remaining idea is to re-install FS9 and my addons onto an external SSD which I have. I've heard this improves load speeds and while that's not specifically what I need, I can't help but wonder if my performance hits are the result of slow data transfer. Maybe this WOULD solve my problems after all. I don't know...! but I hope you all can provide some feedback. Here's a video to give you an idea of how things perform, and what exactly I'm talking about. Any/all help and feedback is much appreciated!
  4. Hi, these are update screenshots for beta testers of my FS9 global makeover textures. The update information can be found here: Here is a list of the updates made in this version. Added more threedee effects to airport buildings: Applied hotfix to desert textures and reworked blending on all desert and grass textures: Reworked some forest sets for still more variety. New sets: Tweaked US fields some: Reworked autogen textures: Thank you! Sascha

    FS9 won't start

    I had to put a new hard drive in my Dell Alienware. I loaded FS9 AND FSX. FSX runs fine, but when I try to run FS9 it tell me I need to log in as Admin and try again. I have rebooted the computer right clicked on FS9 and clicked on run as admin. Then click on the FS9 icon and it still says run as admin and try again. HELP!!!
  6. hello guys, its been a year since i purchased this beauty but it is beastly to fly. its not the handling but the enormous amount of fms programming to be done. so could any tell me in a nutshell how to fly IFR using the fmc.

    FS Weather Server

    Microsoft this afternoon notified us that the FS weather server will be off-line for maintenance from 0930 to 1330 PDT tomorrow. That is 1230 to 1630 EDT.
  8. Hi guys, I have bought the Captainsim 757 for FS9 and FSX and had plans to acquire the 767 and 777 for FSX as well. But before i could proceed , i wanted to know whether the FMC Programming for 767,777 is similar to the 757 in general like the flow of the programming. Is it similar or all three are radically different from each other.
