Thank you,

I got a response directly from one of the guys at ACES Studios, who are the develeopers of FSX.

This is what he had to say:

Check if Windows can even provide the mode you are looking for first (in the display properties dialog - right click on the desktop and select properties), cause if Windows don't have it, then FSX probably won't either.
