Hey All,
Interesting page that tweaks your fsx.cfg file for you. (It even offers a backup of your old one)

http://www.venetubo.com/fsx.html

Let us know your mileage if you try it.

Craig.

You are running with frame rates set to unlimited, great! but MAKE SURE you use the 'external' frame rate limiter set to 'exactly' 30 FPS for optimal results. You can download it here

AffinityMask not present. Adding for optimal results with your hardware.

You don't have a BufferPools section!, adding optimized settings.

HIGHMEMFIX was added to your config!

ALLOW_SHADER_30=1 has been added to make FSX Shader 3 compatible

Aircraft shadows removed for performance. Use Conservative to prevent this change.

Setting TextureMaxLoad to 30 for faster texture loading!

SWAP_WAIT_TIMEOUT has been added to your configuration to prevent blurries.

SmallPartRejectRadius have been added to your config for performance

Adding MAX_ASYNC_BATCHING_JOBS for improved autogen batching performance.

Adjusting SOUND_LOD for improved performance when using AI sounds.

Removing overlay tips to avoid graphics corruption.

Your Cloud draw distance is set above 70nm, try using an external weather program to limit visibility and set your cloud draw distance 10nm UNDER this visibility for optimal horizon cloud blend.

MAKE SURE to disable Transparency Anti-aliasing for improved smoothness with your NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti card.

MAKE SURE to disable Transparency Anti-aliasing for improved smoothness with your NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT card.


Interesting.

I'll have to check this out in detail, heading out to Sanair race track. :)

This did not work at all for me. My frame rates dropped noticeably by at least 6-8 FPS after inserting the new FSX.cfg, and things got jerky.

I suspect that this is something that will work or not work depending on each individual system.

It's certainly safe to try. It will download the new FSX.cfg to any directory you choose. Then rename your existing file and move this one in. It was easy for me to go back to my pre-tweak version.

The cloud draw distance in FS-X starts at 60nm, and the CFG cloud draw distance is 3.

How do you set it to 10nm in FS-X?

I think they are saying to set your CDD so that it is 10nm less than the visibility limit.
In other words, if the minimum CDD in FSX is 60nm then your visibility should be 70nm.
