Yeah, I've not actually been online with FSX yet. Is just randomly flying around frowned upon with people using ATC? Is there anything I should know before I have a blast?

Don't forget to bring a towel.

Depends. All the games say if they are serious or if they are just for fun. If it's serious, you'll get kicked for not using the proper ATC protocols.

I've never tried multiplayer, I just kind of cruise around enjoying the graphics and pushing the flight models. If I did multiplaying I'd probably pretend the F/A-18 is an air to air missile and try intercepting some poor guys 747 with a kenetic energy kill. lol

LOL

MP is a lot of fun. I love flying with experienced ATC. Makes it more realistic and what not. Claiming an emergency is also great. Everyone else backs off, lol. Also, sillyeagle, if you like pushing planes to the limit, try MP and buzz the tower.

Yes slaWter they do work in DX10 FSX as there ready extra postprocessing filters that get added to what ever true AA MS mode you choose,if you can hang on for a day i'll grab you some comparing screen shots

& very Nice Shots shame about that fresnel mapping bug

Ok just a couple of compare shots for you atm (i can grab you more later if you want them but im clonning over my FSX to a new drive atm and filling that with more addons)

Linked thumbs uncompressed 1680x1050 .png files right from fraps

First App pref AA (i recall reading somwhere this is a custom Aces AA request to the hardware that give something like x4 MSAA+2SSAA not sure if that true though)

App AA



CCC AA x8



& the diffrence between then as calculated via photoshops diff layers mode (you need to see this full sceen to see what its doing)



CCC AA x8+EdgeDetect mode



& the diffrence between X8aa & X8AA+ED again as calculated via photoshops diff layers mode (you need to see this full sceen to see what its doing)



As you can see ED does just what it says on the tin!

no hit on FPS between app or x8AA+ED more testing is need to see if this is the case in every situation...

on a side note I managed to indeuce some stuttering today after messing with the TBM & BF setting...it seems that ATI have tweaked there drivers to work with the default values as messing with them seems to cause problems! after all my time ****ing about the the FSX.cfg file this will be a hard habit to break

More testing when the clonnings done!

hope this helps some

Hey slaWter

TBM & BF are Texture Bandwidth Mult & BufferPools 2 FSX.cfg tweaks i had to mess with to get to get FSX to run with less stutters on my 8800GTS 640mb

Yep for some strange reason the App AA looks way better on the 4870 than it did on my Nv card,not sure if ATI are tweaking it at driver time or if Nv cards arent processing the AA call right who knows!

Clone is done now and im in the process of throwing in all my addons back in!
then defrag! thankfully Udefrag is pretty quick
