Well, first off. I use X Graphics. That way I can set my water to none and still get the graphics I want with NO FPS hit. Water is the #1 killer. #2 I've lowered the amount of buildings in the autogen but upped the amount of trees, but still ended up in a lower count so it still improved it.
Here is my graphics file, you can try it it has some sweet fps tweaks. I also use nHancer® for my AA.
HERE ARE MY GRAPHIC SETTINGS:
Make a new file called FlyAwayONLY.cfg
Put this in it:
Post the FlyAwayONLY in your "C:\Users\****\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files" (for vista) or the equivalent for XP.
Go to your FSX Settings and load FlyAwayONLY.cfg into your graphics and fly with that without editing.
Here are the FSX.cfg tweaks, but I've still done a lot more that I cannot remember.
OH! OH! I've dedicated one of my cores to render 3D objects, and do NOTHING else on my computer while its playing. I did that via FSCopilot, I went to Addons > FSCopilot > Multicore, and selected the bottom of the 3 choices. 🙂
Thats all I can really remember, hope this helped you FPS! 😉
I've also used the PMDG tweak guide, and most others.
How do I dedicate my core to work only on fsx?
With fscopilot I keep getting an error saying
"Error opening c:/FScopilot.dll?
