That's actually what gave the guy the idea to try it.

Some FSX screenies I took last night. I can't believe how good this game looks after installing SP1 and doing a few .cfg tweaks. Instead of being a blurry mess, the scenery textures are now razor sharp, even when flying down low. THe image sizes are quite large, but I found that shrinking them anymore and lowering the .jpg quality any further really detracted from the qulity of the images.

BINGO!

I'll post my .cfg file here later this afternoon. The biggest thing I found that helped with the blurries was changing my ingame fitlering from anisotropic to bilinear, and forcing high quality 16X AF through my Nvidia control panel. For some reason, the textures are much better with the ingame filtering set to bilinear rahter than anisotropic when forcing higher levels through your control panel. The other biggie was change the LOD radius from 4.5 to 6.5, and upping my texture bandwidth multiplier to 100 from the default of 40. It is amazing how a few lines changes in the .cfg file can drastically change the appearance of the game.

As requested, here is my FSX.cfg file. I have SP1 installed on my machine as well. Under my Nvidia control panel, I have high quality 16xAF with negative LOD set to clamp. One thing I have found that greatly improves the sharpness of the ingame image is to leave the FSX filtering set to bilinear, while forcing AF through your Nvidia control panel.

THanks for putting that up, looking forward to trying the tweaks.

I tried the 16xAF forced with HQ and Bilinear in FSX and that really helped with the blurries. They were still there, but they went away much faster. Thats for posting your CFG... I will have to try that out tonight BTW.. where is the FSX.cfg file? I can;t find it... even with a search....

Hmm, hopefully my CPU won't bottleneck the card too much as it looks like loafer is running it at 1920 x 1200 with AA and AF on a single GTX. Can't wait til my copy comes in tommorrow to see how it plays now.
