Any help much appreciated
Are you flying under DX10 by any chance? if so its one of FSX's DX10's many bugs that tools tips dont work in full screenmode they will work in DX10 window mode but when i run in window mode FSX drops back to using only core 1...atleast thats what my G15 tells me

hope that helps

Thanks - this has helped but I have noticed that it is still not perfect with DX10 off and in window mode - Not all tooltips appear first time.

Thought I would also share some of my screens with REX installed (taken over the Scottish countryside)

Nice shots Riddell glad to hear you got the tool tips somewhat working

BTW if you want to get find of the toolbar just hold down alt for a few seconds

Hey Silly, I absolutely love this one...



...and also this one...



...but all Screens are in fact gorgeous, cant't wait to get there myself. Just finished installing Win7x64, by the way, GTA4 working better, I hope it goes also for FSX,...oh God! It'll take all day to install, it and all my Ad-ons..., but whenn I'm done, just you wait!...

@omzig the white-red repaint is (as always) a piece of art, a beauty!

Stupid question time!!!

Can anyone run this game with everything maxed out yet? That includes, roads, air traffic, ground traffic...everything? If so. What hardware are you using?

Nope....

FSX has a nasty habbit of overloading the PCI-E bus no matter the amount of bandwidth its given so FSX is a mixture of compromise,if you want more realism back off the eye candy and viceversa the core engine is pretty much all designed to work around the pure grunt Mhz of core1,the design team got caught in that viod between high single cores and the first dual cores,i guess at about 6Ghz + you'ed get it running pretty much full tilt but just that 1 extra set will again prove to be the straw that broke the camel's back and will bring you back to low teens....

i still think the ex aces guys could make a mint by dev'ing up an engine that is backwards compat with FSX's sp2 SDK but moves stuff over to the GPU,we know they were working on this stuff before getting canned and it would be the prefect one in the eye to M$ for killing them off....

Nice shots yxx i do like Van+ although i still think they went a little OTT with the autogen placement

That sucks! I kinda figured.... but damn! That would be great to move it over to the GPU. While playing FSX my GPU hardly even heats up.

Yep it kinda sucks and it does nag at that part of the brain that wispers "WTF i cant run everything full detail!"

Its not that you cant get FSX looking stunning just take a look at pretty much any of the shots posted here,its just that no matter how good you get it looking your always left thinking humm it looks great but on this hardware it should look better for my 30fps....i guess we dont think about all the stuff going on we can see or interact with,

still im sure many talented ppl out there in free/pay ware land will get more out of FSX over the next few years just look at how diffrent it is today that it was at the start of this thread !
