Tweaks....

I don't understand. Any of the suggested tweaks on Phil's blog or this website cannot be found. Are they completely new ones that I just type at the end of the file or should they be in there somewhere and I just have to make changes?
Please help.

I've just posted a (hopefully) simple to follow guide over on FlightSimX for this and some other tweaks that have worked well for me.

Cheers,

Just to be cautious, are these tweaks pre- or post SP1 install?

Post SP1.

Great detail. thanks. Will try when I am home. that's exactly what I was looking for..something with hows and wheres

I can't locate the FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION..
Is this a problem?

Pro Member First Officer

I definitely do not have that line in there. Now what?

Find the section in fsx.cfg called [Main] and add the following line anywhere in that section:

FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION=0.7

I believe the default value is 0.33. 0.7 works beautifully for me and provides crystal clear scenery (no blurries) and a performance improvement.

Will that line be removed everytime I start up or exit FSX?
Can you provide the CFG listing, so that I can see if I am missing anything else?
I know it's a lot to ask.. No problem if you can't.

Hi,

Once you add it, it should stay there 🙂

I'll post my fsx.cfg when I get back home.

Cheers,

Mark

Thanks...
Can it be the default, not the tweaked one?
Thanks again. You have been a great help. I really hope to get a performance boost by adding that line.

Okay, here's my first fsx.cfg. Bear in mind this is obviously pre-Service Pack 1, so things will have changed between this and a post-Service Pack 1 fsx.cfg. Also bear in mind that it's not the one that was created when I first installed FSX (as you can see from the Trusted section), but is the one I first backed up. The only way to get the original one would be to do a re-install.

Thank you. I made some of the tweaks last night. WOW. What a difference. I am pleased now. I am getting 25-45 FPS now. Not sure why it fluctuates, but at least it's not 5-20...That's pre SP1..

Is that true regarding Fiber Frame....?

I have a duel core processor...

Phil taylor also mentioned another tweak along with a Mip Bias tweak...

Display.device.xxx.0
Where is this? Where should it be and what is the xxx. I don't understand that?
Thanks

Not sure, to be honest. I applied SP1 to a 2 month old install with a number of add-ons already installed and I've not hit any problems.

is the config file actually names fsx.cfg? I am looking under MS Games/FSX but dont see a fsx.cfg file. I see about 6 others - help

Pro Member Trainee

You should find it in:

C:/Document and Settings/YourUserNameHere/Application Data/Microsoft/FSX/

Yes I found it

I was going into Program files/MS Games/FSX rather than documents and settings/microsoft/FSX

Thank you.

I forgot where I read this but someone wrote that by right clicking on my computer or something like that you can set up the Sata for advanced speed. I don't know...
