Display problems: Background turns grey?

Pro Member Trainee

It seems that FS9 dispays in different 'layers'. The background keeps turning 'grey' no details when in spot plane mode. The detail disappears - must be a graphics issue. Can anyone help to tell me how to config. display settings. Of course it just might be a graphics card capability.
Thanks.

You have a very low quality video card (integrated).
You'll have to turn down clouds, turn off shadows and water.
Easy on the AI.

See if you have any empty sockets on the motherboard so you can load either a AGP, PCI or PCIe onto it disabling the integrated one first.

Check out the board and let us know.

Thanks RadarMan - I suspected that the PC I have does not have the kind of graphics capability I would really like. I think a new PC is in order in the not-too-distant future! I'll take your advice re. settings in FS9. Your feedback is much appreciated.
