Fly Away Simulation

how to display frames per second

Damoun.h. Guest

I am running my flight sim x on vista, and the 3rd party program that i used to view fps does not work on vista. Does fligth sim x have its own fps display?

and if so, how can i use it?

Shift + z

Is correct but shft + z twice will get you other data and a third shift z will clear it. It does matter if it is Vista or not as long as FSX or FS9 will run it is all the same.

Okay check it...... Exclamation

I ran FSX with almost the default settings: I replaced the Ultralight with my favorite...... the British Airways Airbus A380-800. So it was that trying to land at Friday Harbor, which is impossible for that plane.

I hit Shift+Z twice to get my frame rate and guess what?

24 fps is freaking fast!!! Shocked Yes, the fps did fluctuate, but never sank below 18 fps and the plane handled smoothly, with no choppiness and lagging. So I decided to take it up a notch and take off and land somewhere a little more crowded, say like Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Cool

The one that has Interstate 5 going right along side it!!!! Oh yeah I forgot....the freeway stays packed!!

Frame rate dropped to between 8 and 15 fps....and the aircraft hauled ass down the runway!!!! No lag. No stutter. I got it further airborne and watched the fps climb up to 24 fps.... the target goal, and turned it around for landing. When I landed (and it was fast and hard), the frame rate was at 10 fps!!!! Shocked My current settings are at 60% overall on Ultra High!!!

Goes to show what tweaking can do......... Very Happy
