  1. Hello everyone! Just so everyone knows, I am aware that if im using all those addons ill be getting bad fps but not as bad as i thought. So i just got accepted into Qantas Virtual so ill be doing my flying in Australia, and who better for scenery than ORBX?! So I load up P3D, select YBBN (Brisbane, with all patches and I have taken out all the major FPS killers in the control panel except for PeopleFlow.) and I load up my 737. My FPS during the day time is only at 20 at the gate with the plane systems on! Now ill give you a series of tweaks that i did to my CFG file and system specs, also, should I turn the the resolution on the 737? Will it look really bad? Used Bojotes tweak tool for fsx, For the bufferpools i replaced their number with 0, and i also added the Fiber frame fraction tweak and set it at 0.33. Other than that I set the ORBX effects to Day mode. System specs: Intel core i5 2500K 4.5ghz AMD Radeon 6870 1GB 8GB RAM 750 Watts PSU ASROCK P67 MOBO FSX is on a 1TB hard drive And numerous addons. Is there maybe something i missed or can do to improve my frames when flying in australia? Because in Europe I get great frames, i dont check the number but get between 25 (lowest) to 40 with the pmdg. Thanks!
  2. I want to buy a new pc that can run the pmdg 777 on addon scenery like UK2000 and the rest of must have addons (REX, FTX Global,...) and get above 25 fps in the cockpit. Is this possible with these specs ? I5-4690k overclocked up to 4.6 ghz MSI Z97 GTX 960 2gb 8gb ram I know tweaks must be applied
  3. Hi guys, Recently I've upgraded my PC to a GTX 970 FTW and therefore reinstalled windows. So a few days ago I installed P3D V2.4 on my PC with FTX England, Orbx Global and Global Vector and so I'm wondering whether there are any working performance tweaks that will work with 2.4? Running P3D V2.4 I get around 30-40FPS on Ultra settings but my GPU is only seeing around 30% load and around 2.45GB of VRAM used (Out of 4GB) so there's a lot of horsepower in the beast to spare. CPU - 4790K OC @ 4.4GHz (4.6GHz Turbo) and sees around 67% load when in-game. Are there any tweaks that will allow me to use more resources and get more detail and/or just use more resources to get more FPS? I know RAM is limited due to 32-bit but how about GPU resources? Searching around it's very confusing as to what actually works with 2.4 so I'd like to simply ask in a new thread. Many thanks for your answers, Chris
  4. Hi all, Some months ago I updated my computer. ​Old one was a i7 2400k, mid-end amd gpu.... So went for new config and here it is: ASUS Maximus VII Hero Intel I7 4790K running at 4.8Ghz 32GB of DDR3 (4x KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX) 500GB SSD EVO 850 And last but not least: EVGA GTX980 AC2.0 (4gb) First installed windows 8.1, but when I tried to play FSX steam edition, things looked realy bad. I wasn't able to get it in widescreen for some reason. So after a while I thought to give it a shot with windows 10, because I realy wanted it running again. It has been a while since my last tweaking, so started searching some tweaks again... But for some reason i'm messing up. ​When I test the game and look at GPU-Z. Memory of the GPU stays the same, there is no load, only the clock and memory speed go slightly up. Used Nvidia configurator to set texturing and AA options... Or should it realy be nvidia inspector? These are some options I tested with in fsx.cfg (So don't have to put all of .cfg in here: [GRAPHICS] HIGHMEMFIX=1 TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=4096 [BUFFERPOOLS] POOLSIZE=0 BufferPools=1 UsePools=1 RejectThreshold=126976 Poolsize=490000000 [JOBSCHEDULER] [DISPLAY] TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT=40 UPPER_FRAMERATE_LIMIT=40 [Main] FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION=0.15 [DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980.0] Mode=1920x1080x32 Anisotropic=1 [SCENERY] LENSFLARE=0 DAWN_DUSK_SMOOTHING=1 IMAGE_COMPLEXITY=5 [TERRAIN] LOD_RADIUS=5.500000 MESH_COMPLEXITY=100 MESH_RESOLUTION=23 TEXTURE_RESOLUTION=27 AUTOGEN_DENSITY=4 DETAIL_TEXTURE=1 WATER_EFFECTS=7 Is there anybody who can point me to the right direction or even better with a smooth running .cfg with a kinda identical system? For those who respond... thx already!
