Recently, someone posted on his grim results from having made or purchased a new gaming computer just for FSX. The new computer couldnt run it. I shared the feeling as I have gone through 3 new computers and non run FSX well. Twitches, convulsions, jitters, hops, you name it... It drove me crazy. I couldnt fly in FSX for more then 10 or 15 min's without booting out and taking medications to cool me down.
Well.. Bob Rivera suggested one turns down their 'texture bandwidth' and see how that helps. His was at 40 and he turned his down to 10 and it had amazing results.
Well, from my FS9 days, you cranked that setting up, tremendously, and it would help FS9 to run smoother. I looked in my installation and found my setting at 400, lol.. Well, its right if it were FS9, correct? I turned it down to 10.
VOILA! Eureka! (jumped up on the desk and danced a jig) wooo hoooooo!
No stutters, no hops, no clouds that disappear and then reappear right in front of you.
My iMac (Apple Computer) runs FSX quite well now.
Who would have thought it was that setting??? arrgh.
