A few days ago, while using my flight sim x deluxe version, all textures appeared normal or enhanced, except for the water, which had no texture and appeared as old crate paper...flat with jagged edges. My FSX allows for a preview of Directx 10 which provides the necessary graphics for the water, however, any of my chrome liveries are sacrificed and the base models are solid white.
Any suggestions as to what may be causing this? My current graphics card is a geforece GTS 450. My dxdiag shows that my system does use Directx 11.
Uncheck the DirectX10 box and see if the water looks better.
If it does then whatever add-on you have isn't for DX10.
Thanks, for responding...And yes, I have unchecked that DX 10 box, still, with no good results. Other than downloading and installing new aircraft models, I have done nothing else. The last message I received after having checked my dxdiag was that possibly my Dx 9.0c, the original Directx with my system may be damaged or missing. I have tried to reinstall it with no success. System restore was my next option, and of course, nothing doing...But again, thanks, for your response, as it does help me believe that possibly I may discover a way to repair it.
Drop in disk #1 and choose repair, see if that does it.
