    I think patching CFS2 to use 4GB broke Mission Builder....

    Okay, thanks Allen. I'll leave well enough alone.

    High Detail Vc

    Would someone be able to post from their CFS2.cfg, the parameter that will enable higher resolution in the virtual cockpit?

    4GB patch - I have WIN7 Home Premium OS & I patched the CFS2 executible in all my installs. I found an improvement in smoothness & rendering speed in "object-heavy" missions, so I'd say the Sim being able to see & use the 4GB helps.

    I can use Mission Builder in all my installs too, no issues.

    High Detail VC - Don't think there's a particular setting in CFS2.cfg for High Detail VC panels.

    I just think you just double up the VC panel.cfg "pixel size" entry for the aircraft in question (not forgetting to double up all the gauge size numbers too).

    Even with Win 10 you should be able to go into the Image Quality settings and set the VC to high but this means you must do the copy and paste of the keys again.

    The high detail key for the VC is frond in the [PREFS] look for COCKPIT_HIGH_LOD= and set to 1

    After backing up the original *.exe the patch was applied. My Mission Builder did load okay. Still no joy in the vc, but I do appreciate the help.

    Yep Allen, your suggestion of COCKPIT_HIGH_LOD=1 did the trick. Thanks.
    It also fixed the vc light from flickering which was also going on.
    With the AMD graphics card I have the Graphics acceleration is always greyed out. If I tick, Settings\graphics at all it porks everything down to the lowest settings.
    The experiencing of this called for keeping a back-up CFS2.cfg with all of the good Prefs and video card settings you posted earlier. Now those can be pasted back in.

    Thanks Again Gents

    Hi everyone.

    Just reinstalled CFS2 on my W10 machine and having problems with the resolution size. Have read this thread and tried manually amending the CFS2.CFG however CFS2 doesnt seem to recognise this and therefore I can't enable hardware acceleration and I can only select 1920x1080x16 rather than 1920x1080x32

    Any suggestions as to what I can try?

    Hi Ian,

    I can give you the procedure I went through...maybe it will work for you also. There's some hoops to jump thru so be patient.

    1.) Cut and paste the Combat Flight Simulator 2 folder to the C: drive. Nothing will work in the Program Files (x86)

    2.) Use the No Cd executable. A must.

    3.) Right click on the Cfs2.exe in your Combat Flight Simulator 2 folder and then send to desktop (create shortcut).

    4.) Find the shortcut on your desktop, right click, then click Run As Administrator.

    5.) Find the shortcut on your desktop again, right click, properties, compatibility and Windows XP Service Pak 2.

    6.) Copy and paste your CFS2.cfg. to your desktop.

    7.) Open CFS2.cfg with notepad.

    8.) These are snips of what I had to change manually.

    Code:
    [LANGUAGE]
    DLL=english.fll
    [MAIN]
    ShowLogo=0
    ShowMovie=0
    RUNNINGBADHW=0
    Location=0,0,1920x1080
    HideMenuNormal=0
    HideMenuFullscreen=1
    Maximized=0
    [PANELS]
    IMAGE_QUALITY=1
    HUD_COLOR=1
    9.) Then scroll down to...

    Code:
    PERFORMANCE_MODE=0
    DEF_PERF_MODE=6
    MAP_GROUND_TEXTURE=1
    TEXT_SCROLL=1
    PANEL_MASKING=1
    PANEL_STRETCHING=1
    AUTO_LOD=0
    TEXTURE_QUALITY=3
    IMAGE_COMPLEXITY=5
    DYNAMIC_SCENERY=0
    DYN_SCN_DENSITY=0
    DAWN_DUSK_SMOOTHING=1
    SMOOTH_VIEW=0
    IMAGE_SMOOTHING=0
    LOD_TARGET_FPS=30
    COCKPIT_HIGH_LOD=1
    TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=1024
    DETAIL_TEXTURE=1
    EFFECTS_QUALITY=2
    TERRAIN_ERROR_FACTOR=1.500000
    TERRAIN_MAX_VERTEX_LEVEL=19
    TERRAIN_TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=8
    MAX_UNLIMITED_VIS=32186
    AIRCRAFT_SHADOWS=1
    GROUND_SHADOWS=1
    IMAGE_QUALITY=0
    TEXTURE_BLDG=1
    TEXTURE_GND=1
    SKY_TYPE=1
    TEXTURE_WATER=1
    AIRCRAFT_TEXTURE=1
    SEE_SELF=1
    PROPELLER_VISIBLE=1
    SOUND_FADER1=0.800000
    SOUND_FADER2=0.200000
    SOUND_FADER3=0.700000
    SOUND_FADER4=0.200000
    SOUND_FADER5=0.400000
    LOADWEATHER=0
    LOW_RES_RENDERING=0
    SITUATION=
    STARTUP_DEMO=
    KNEEBOARD=0,520,304
    LOG_FILE=0
    10.) Then the last...

    Code:
    [DISPLAY]
    Device=AMD Radeon R9 200 Series
    Mode=1920x1080x32
    Dither=0
    TriLinear=0
    AntiAlias=1
    HWTnL=1
    Fog=1

    This last one will need to be updated with your graphics card name. Mine is "Device=AMD Radeon R9 200 Series" Yours will be different.

    11.) Close notepad, save.

    12.) Copy and paste the one on your desktop to Combat Flight Simulator 2 folder , allow overwrite or replace of whats in there.

    If the Gods are smiling upon you this day, close everything, go to your desktop shortcut and double click. You'll get some permissions questions...yes, ok and your shoe size, blah, blah...Cfs2 should load.

    I'm rooting for you, just needs some time,
    Dave

    I just hope it helps. Hope Ian has some success.

    Speaking for myself, I almost gave up on it. But the next day I thought "No Way". This stupid electronic box is not going to beat me.
    Dang machine...

    Hi Guys,

    I'm pleased to say it is now working. I moved my installs on to a separate SSD and the CFG now seems to recognise the amendments I've been making. Thank you for your guidance Dv and Allen.

    The only issue now is the black box when selecting aircraft. Oddly the picture of the aircraft was there before but this issue has re-appeared since I moved the install. Small problem though and one I can live with.

    Now just going through the process of following Rami's ETO install guide before I install the BOB campaign.

    Your a good man Ian, Congratulations!

    BTW, the only way my install will show the aircraft in the black box is by using Alt + Enter on the keyboard. This will put the sim in windows view.
    When done, do the Alt + Enter again and you will be back to full screen viewing.

    Cheerz, Dave

    Note pad problems

    My old rig (HP-win7) is 10yrs old and showing signs of age, so I have been working to move CFS2 to my NEW win10 machine before the HP dies. So far most of my issues have been manageable. But now I've hit a wall. I can't make changes to cfg files or dp files and save them with notepad. I've set all the permissions I can find and set administrator controls, but I'm still missing something. Google search is no help, and MS help is no better. I wonder if this anything encountered and resolved by others.
