Yep Nv drivers pretty much suck ass for FSX almost every driver set has some kind of problem from rendering errors to BSOD,menu hangs,rendering driver stopped ectectect with the amount of bitchin on there own forums & across the various FSX boards you'ed think they'ed have fixed it by now but as you know FSX is missing that one special NV driver fix ingredient....A BENCHMARK

they just dont give a **** about fixing games that they cant score browny points from in reviews,which is why im really hopping the new 48xx cards do really well,even if there only as fast as my 8800gts 640mb in FSX with like for like settings i dont care as i'll be glad to have some solid driver support for my money not just some radom beta drivers that i need to hack inf files to get working

anyhows rant mode off

Ive been working on some freeware water normal maps to try and fix the mess that Aces made of the DX10 water (they added 3 extra water layers but just copied the exsisting textures to 2 of those layers talk about slack...as of the moment FEX doesnt alter these textures so there just plasted ontop of the higher res FEX normals leaving the blocky mess)

Here a few WIP shots

I see Aerosoft released a 1.01 update for the Hughes H-1, and of course Orbx released the 1.2 freeware airfield pack, but I suppose most know that by now. I just found out earlier today, so I'm looking forward to the Redcliff scenery by Mango when I get home from work.

FSX has been the most frustrating and amazing game I've played. From drivers to tweaks, scenery addons and the whole lot it seems amazing how it even runs sometimes. I will cave in at some point and get a gtx280 sooner than later probably as i do play a lot of other games also.

but starting in July my work schedule is 3 16hour days on and 3 days off routine until September so maybe getting a new VGA can wait till September cause i won't game as much but man i cave into all the new PC hardware that comes out right away. (not trying to brag but computers is my main hobby so most of money goes there right now)

like today i bought a new v-raptor (very excited) so i gonna do a fresh install of OS and fsx sometime in the next week yet ...........i just can't stop buying PC stuff....lol.

i just hope when i buy a new gtx280 that the drivers will work well with fsx.

Yeah FSX is so variably vast and dynamic there is really no limit to what you can add, change, tweak, modify, create, and do.... Most of the time I'm just playing around with stuff rather than making formal flights. Given how open and complex this software is it does seem amazing it can all work together so well. But, in a lot of cases it doesn't work together so well. lol

Hi there Jasonsco

Welcome to the little FSX club we have going here at NVnews

I think orbx have done a lot to raise Oz's flight priority for a lot of FSX infact im sure most of us had'nt even checked out Oz for any flights before AU Blue (i checked out sydney with the sorth lived VOZ of fsx....which was abbandoned in favor of AU) this mostly has to do with Aces ignoring pretty much anything out side the US mesh wise

just saw this over at FSW about the upcoming FEX update!

Also much new functionality and improvements with FEX itself, dynamic theme creation and control is much greater and easier than before.

Following updates including Airport Environments, new water stuff wink.gif , new weather stuff and more, will gradually be released.
About dam time if you ask me

BTW Hey slaWter no need for beta tester atm but if you want to check it out PM me and i'll send you a link to the zipped files atm its only really good for large bodies or open sea's as it looks a little rough on rivers and small inland lakes

that's good to hear. i was a little nervous there when i saw the THG numbers but i guess i wouldn't expect the new GTX to make fps rocket sky high. that didn't even happen when i went from dual to quad with this game. just texture loading was nice and sharp and i turned up some settings. i think I remember sillyeagle mentioning that too with going to a quad. i was hoping for at least the same fps with a new GTX and maybe smoother game play with AA and AF.

Congrats on the new card and nice setup you have there. i looked at your pics in the other thread.


welcome jasonsco. i too observed this thread for long time and took in the knowledge of everyone here and didn't post much but now I start throwing my two bits in.

I am also looking forward to the SHD clouds update from FEX this weekend.

Thank you very much - at the moment I'm using the default autogen textures, as I wiped my entire FSX drive when the new GenX disks were released, and one of the few things I haven’t gotten round to is the trees. I must admit I was very disappointed with the 'Natural world trees' with the flat textures, and there didn't appear to be much, if any, seasonal variation [same with TreeX] - do you find that with them Silly?

omzig - hope you like the GenX scenery. Photoscenery can feel a bit odd to start with, after the default, due to lack of Autogen, but as you know that can be added - at least to some degree.

Take a look at http://www.shepsshed.com/autogentrees.htm for some trees for you area - unfortunately vfraddons, another good site for agn seem to be defunct now - but I have a cd with all available agn on it, which I can let you have a copy of if you PM me.


If you join the Horizon forum [great little friendly place, with tons of free airfields and good advice and help] you can ask 'Ananda' for a link to his agn2genx placement tool, this puts all the agn files into the correct volume and area.
