Now that I bought and installed FSX Acceleration Pack...

Ok I bought and installed the pack. Now the menu's are screwed up. When I select a menu the writing on the menus is jibberish.

There is no way I have found to select radios or nav radios on the F/A 18. They Virtual Panels are sketchy at best.

What is DX10 mode?

To correct this do I have to re-install everything including OS then do I install FSX then the acceleration pack and not install sp1?

Did this acceleration pack install fsx sp2?

Did this acceleration pack instal fsuipc?

Shut off DX 10 mode. It ruins textures unless you have a DX 10 card.
Yes on SP2
No on FUSIPC registered, it may load a new free version.

I have a dx10 card but it looks screwed up. How do you shut off dx-10 mode?

In settings, just uncheck it.

after a couple of reboots it seems to be working fine.

i am having the same issue with the menu bar showing up gibberish. as does the ATC Window. i looked in settings for something about DX10 but did not see anything. i've uninstalled and reloaded several times to no avail. i'm also getting autogen scenery that "stretches" into the sky and when its really bad the plane appears to blow apart into polygons making the game all but unplayable. it never did this prior to the installation of Acceleration. anyone have any ideas?

This is the way I installed Acceleration.
No problems at all.

Hello Radarman and all,
I had very good luck installing Acceleration, not a burp, BUT, do have issues with DX10 mode......................shimmers at airports, straight lines just move like crazy, also, NO Progressive Taxi.............and the VC lights did not work..........but I found a fix for that................

WHAT "I" have found...............................it's my nVidia Driver/s - I'm running a very hi-end unit with a 8800GTS 640 meg....................
I have been told by "very" reliable sources that DX10 is still in it's infancey and Vista, and especiall nVidia, are still trying to work out the little idiosyncrousies............and "be" patient as it will eventually will all work out.................so, I'm waiting...............................

Radarman...............glad your's is working so well as many others are.......it's just many of us with Vista and nVidia are not there yet.

Forget DX 10 for now, as you say it's in it's early stage and is all problems.
Soon we hope the final will be out but for now uncheck the box.

For those who are wondering...That box only shows if your using Vista not XP.
