Ferry Interestink!

Throughout a FL310 flight from EGNS to Greenham Common, there was little variation in the amount of memory used; either System or Video Card. It coped with dense cloud, rain, photoscenery and AI, without breaking into a sweat. Ie, it never used more than 55% of SM or 64% of Video Memory.

If it's using so little memory, why do most people seem to benefit by maximising memory.

Thanks Denis.

I'm now aiting to turn onto the EGNS 26, in ASv7 pouring rain. Memstsus shows Peak Useage at 53% and 1464. Task Manager virtually agrees.

Video Memory is peaking at 481Mb, 64%.

Meanwhile, System Information Total Physical Memory = 4,096 Mb and Available Physical Memory as 1.34 Gb.

They don't seem to agree. With XP seeing my 4Gb and the other two not.

Google 'Memstatus'. Its a 10kb program which shows you how much memory you are using.

Well, here I am, with 4Gb of memory now installed, trying to spot some
worthwhile improvement. It might be marginaaly sharper in some areas but
nothing that grabs me.

So, how do I find how much memory FSX is actually using? Task Master
doesn't seem to provide much.
