Hi Frank, |
My only changes from the default currently are:
Dynamic Scenery slider set one notch down from default
"Aircraft casts shadows on self" turned off
AI Turned up to 100%
Weather refresh rate turned down one notch from default
Resolution set to 32 bit instead of 16.
Scenery Mesh turned up one notch from default.
Thats about it I think. There really aren't that many problems. In fact
I can't replicate the problem displayed at Teeside! I've tried
everything. must be a unique combination of settings.
And those of you FS Commander FsNAV users should spend £1.50 on a map
and be real men ;)
Its all about tweaking i think.

How about a rundown on what you changed, and it's effect.
So far, the biggest criticism, has been about the scenery, or rather
the bugged version, the scenery designers are going to have a big
headache sorting that out.
That and FSNav/FSCommander and FSUPIC, will those with the previous
paid versions have to pay again?
Not worried too much about machine spec. But having seen those screen
shots, makes me rather dubious.

Ok, this has indeed been a strange day
Started out by buying FSX, getting home, installing and being
disappointed, very much so infact. The FPS I was getting really left
me feeling let down. 2 hours of playing however sorted this. One
setting changed at a time, restart and see if it helps.
I now have a hard time to get the FPS to go below 20FPS.
My FSX is now vastly outperforming FS9 by a silly amount, it looks
better acts better and is more stable. 70% of the default aircraft are
payware quality. The UK Mesh really is rather good and at default
settings is just as good as most payware mesh packages. The UK Autumn
textures really are awful however, flick it on to summer, and all is
I'm going to spend tomorrow porting all of my XML Paneled (SP?!)
aircraft over and I really think that, from now on, I am going to be
doing 80% of my flying on here.
I think I allowed myself to be poisoned by all the naysayers, it really
isn't bad. Its just as good as FS9 + Addons straight out of the box.
My machine is most certainly middle of the road these days, please
don't not buy it because you don't think it will run. It really will.
Right now I'm speaking to someone running it on a 1.8ghz PIII getting
15FPS quite comfortably. Its most definitely usable an will certainly
give you a better experience than FS9 is currently.
