I ran it fairly successfully.
- Turn off the Land and Sea Traffic ( Left the Airliners and GA on 100% )
- Scenery set to Medium Low with watter effects turned off ( they look awful IMO ).
- Set the aircraft up without the shinyness on it. ( I am yet to see a Cub with Shiny windows ).
I locked the FPS @ 37. Works away fine flying around Ireland, a solid 37FPS. Take it into any of the more populated places ( KLAX, KJFK etc.. ) it dips down to the 20's.
( A few tips for getting more performance out of your current machine. Turn the autogen off and get rid of all traffic. You should notice a huge increase in FPS then. )
I'm running FS9 with everything maxed at a solid 40FPS.
AMD Athon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+
512MB X1300 Graphics Card.
yada yada yada.
all responses are greatly appreciated
A few lads over there have done up a few texture mods, a great autogen mod and a cfg file change that have improved my fps by up to 50%.
Im running a p4 3.4ghz 1gb ram & 256mb ATI x600 and its running pretty smooth for me with all the sliders up to half and texture res up full.
I keep the road traffic down to 0(fps KILLER!!) & commercial AI at about 20% and GA at about 50%.
Make sure you turn aircraft shadowing options off but leave advanced animations on if you want to see fuel trucks,jetways and baggage trucks moving about your plane.
If anyone knows any dodgy ftp site where I can get the full thing please give me a shout.
Also, even though the motherboard in the XPS supports RAM up to 800MHz, Dell did something to make it only accept 667MHz memory...
See http://www.trustedreviews.com/article.aspx?art=3453 for more info on the XPS.
