  1. Dear all, Does anyone uses the external FPS limiter for the Radeon graphics card on the Windows 10 operating system? If so could you please share your experience with the rest of the community about setting it up in Windows 10 and a like. The reason I'm asking this is that before Windows 10 I could use the software Radeon_external_FPS_limiter (found it on Boyote tweaking site), but since Windows 10 the mentioned software doesn't work. Also is there some other similar software that could work on Windows 10? Thank you all in advance for the helpful tips and suggestions. Safe simming Marko
  2. My three year old AMD Radeon HD 7870 recently failed, and the tech shop recommended replacing it with a Radeon R7 360 by MSI. So far I'm not impressed with the performance and am having to tweak FSX to get some smoother framerates. I'm not sure what to do at this point other than to find a better card. I'd stick with the new card if there was more information on how to configure it for FSX. My system is a Dell XPS 8500 desktop, i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40 ghz AND 16 GB Ram. And I'm running Windows 8.1. So, I'm looking for any advice, suggestions or links to other sites that might help me. Oh, and if you feel that the Radeon R7 360 is not a good card for FSX, feel free to say so. Thanks --WH
  3. Hello, the last few days I try to switch from the "traditional" FSX to p3d. After many hours of searching and tweaking I'm not quite satisfied with the result. I get about 15-20 fps with default scenery and the textures are not to clear. Any suggestions? CPU: Intel Core i7 4790 @ 3.60 GHz GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series RAM: 8GB
  4. Hello. Let me start with my system settings. HP Pavilion g4-2064la Intel Core i3 @ 2,3GHz 4Gb RAM Intel HD Graphics 3000 (integrated) ATI Radeon HD 7670M (dedicated) - Switchable graphics FSX with SP1 and SP2 I've forever used FSX in DX9 mode, but recently wanted to try DX10 and see how it works. Even though the FPS have never been so good in my computer and I have applied the fixes, antialiasing is terribly bad. I have already applied the MultiSamplesPerPixel=4 in the fsx.CFG [GRAPHICS] section and the "Use application settings" in RadeonPro's AA options (I also selected Multisampling (Box)). Anyway, the AA should work, but it does not function very well. I also get a black full-screen view, but I can see everything if FSX is running in windowed mode. Thanks for your help. I suppose I should start by letting FSX build a new fsx.CFG file, shouldn't I?
  5. Anyone has using R9 GPU series from AMD for primary flight system(FSX/P3D)? (R9 270x/280x/290x) Is there any problem/issue with FS? (like black screen,blur display etc..etc..) -------------------- I was plan buying GTX 660 in last three weeks ,But can't get any. maybe there 20 retail store and 5 online store i asking if there any gtx 660 available ;_; (no stock) I look 270x , and its available.Maybe will choose this card for my flight sytem (it has mantle thoo ) (I know Price 270x and GTX 760 MS* on neweg** is similliar, but in my country(Indonesia) there $30+- USD diffrent) I know using Nvidia card its best choice for Flight system.. But 3 weeks without gaming its... killing me T_T,Can't wait any longer.. * Sorry for bad english *
  6. Hello Avsim! I have spent the last....oh idk 234 straight hours of my life trying to resolve my tearing and spike issue with FSX (DX10). First off...Clearly one can tell that Steves DX10 fix is a really good fix and I would recommend it to anyone because I'm sure this isn't happening to all of you happy users. Lets begin.... One day I started to get tears and spikes while in DX10.....After a un believable amount of troubleshooting and testing I decided the only way to stop my tearing and spike issue in FSX was reinstalling it all over again (yes, with all my addons and hardware button mapping, FSUIPC, cam settings, weather settings etc...). My thought was to install one addon at a time until these badboys came out to play again. Of course I was hoping they wouldn't....but, they did. Take a few minutes to hear my story because this bug may be breading like a mouse for ATI users. First off my hardware and software: (Alienware Aurora R4) i7 3930k 3.2ghz (OC'd at 4.4) HT enabled ATI Radeon 7970 3gb 16gbs of ram Win 7 Home Premium ATI 13.4 driver RadeonPro My FSX.CGF changes (after trying 10000 options): Highmemfix=1 WideViewAspect=True ForceWindowedVsynce=1 TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT=40 My addons: UTX GEX REX ASE2012 Genises mesh Magoisoft Shade EZdock Cam Folks, I have done everything. bios settings, bios upgrades/downgrades, GPU driver update/downgrade, OC settings, Cooling settings. Literally every possible option of tweaks in the FSX.cfg (including making a default one). CCC upgrade and downgrade, addon re-installs, CCC settings, RadeonPro settings, AA setings, MSI afterburn options, graphics options in FSX, traffic options, textures from GEX and ASE 2012 and to be honest, SO MUCH MORE that I won't waist your time with my list, just know it's not pretty. I finally said thats enough and I reinstalled EVERY...single...thing. So as I'm "revers engineering" my situation I keep in mind what I'm installing and testing FSX after every single install. Finally I come to Steves DX10 fix. I register it, run the installer and....(drum roll please) Tearing and spikes are back faster then a speeding bullet. So now that I see what's causing these at least I have a little better idea of what I should be doing....But I mean NOTHING......nothing at all has stopped these from showing.....a few minutes into every flight I get these spikes and tears especially on final. Funny thing is there is absolutely NO FPS DECREASE while these are happening...they just flicker and go crazy everywhere on my screen. Also my card isn't even being used a lot....or heating up along with my CPU. My Radeon Pro settings are from this guid right here. I have done a numerous amount of FSX.CFG tweaks including bufferpools 1&0 reject thresholds and these are still here. Isn't this beautiful? I am willing to try just about anything to get these to leave. My sim is better than ever right now if it just wasn't for this bug.....Im getting a steady 30fps with the ATI DX10 guid up-top however, all this great sim experience is washed away with these spikes and tears. Any ideas gentlemen?
  7. Hey guys. I need some expert opinion. I want to upgrade my gfx card from a 9500gt to either a radeon 7750 or radeon 7770. I want to know how they will run on fsx with my pmdg 737 (ie if textures would load immediately etc). The 7750 is much cheaper and if i select that i will order it immediately. However if i choose the 7770 i would have to wait till june/july. Which should i get and are there vast diffrences? Btw system is Phenom ii x6 1045t 4gb ram 1333 ddr3 Windows 7 ultimate 64bit
  8. Hi, Last year I bought an AMD FX6300 @ 3.5Ghz, Turbo up to 4.1Ghz (technically a 3 core 6 thread CPU) and recently an R9 270 GPU. It greatly improved performance in FSX compared to a previous old core2duo. Even better in Prepar3D. Recently I got an Acer laptop, thin and portable with only moderate casual gaming in mind, it has a Core i5-4200U @ 1.6Ghz, Turbo up to 2.6Ghz (a 2 core CPU with 4 threads) with an NVIDIA GT750M GPU (in optimus) and in turns out that this laptop runs just as good if not sometimes better than my main desktop rig? I compared settings and loaded up addon scenery with addon aircraft and the FPS is mostly similar (in Prepar3D) In FSX the desktop is somewhat faster but also not much. In other first person shooter games (BF4) or Watch_Dogs the desktop rig is considerably better, but still the laptop is not too far behind if I slightly dial down details. Now I am wondering, are games so well optimized these days or is AMD just really bad? I know vishera/piledriver and whatnot wasnt a hit but I didnt expect it to almost lose out to a mobile CPU found in ultrabooks.... this i5 is the U version with low TDP.... Also I recall usi some msi tool to see CPU core usage in-game and it was constantly dropping and rising, I have a low end ASUS mainboard could this be a bottleneck and have trouble handling the FX CPU?
  9. Hi all, I finally got my new computer and most things are working properly. I mainly bought it to play FSX smooth and with nice graphics. However, by "most things are working", I mean that my graphics card, the GTX 1060, broke and it will probably need a few weeks until I get the RMA. I am interimistically using an ATI Radeon HD 3870 with 512 MB of VRAM. My other specs, are as follows: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 6x3.4GHz 16 GB RAM @ 2133Ghz Will the graphics card limit the game a lot or is it enough for smooth gameplay on good settings, as FSX is very CPU intensive. Thank you all, I'm looking forward a lot to get into the skies again. ---- And maybe, as a small optional side question: Is it worth to put FSX on the SSD or will the HDD be fast enough to load all that beautiful scenery? Thanks!
  10. Hello, I am seeking your help, if anybody has any experience or suggestion regarding P3D AA with AMD GPU? I am practically unable to get a decent anti-aliasing in the simulator. Tried with 4 and 8 samples, FXAA on/off. With/without Radeon settings profile (Used App settings/enhance/override 4x, 8x). Still getting some aliasing, flickering and shimmering; Rwy, terminal and 3D objects shimmering Gauges (especially F/O) and txt around GPS and Radio knobs gauges flickering Aliasing on the external view (wings, yellow fuselage line...) I would be very gratful for any suggestions and ideas how could I solve this? Your help is very much appreciated. I did rebuild the cfg and I have the latest AMD drivers (16.11.2) My config: Win10 x64 P3Dv3.4.9 MoBo: MSI B150 PC MATE RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 8GB DDR4 2133MHz CL14 CPU: Intel Core i5-6500, 3.2GHz GPU: Sapphire R9 390 NITRO SSD: Crucial BX100 250GB Current Radeon P3D profile: P3D Graphics settings:
