FSX with sp2 is 3GB+ aware but getting it to use that much memory it is another matter

Im running in vistax64 with 4GB ram on a 8800gts 640MB @ 1680x1050 under dx9 & dx10 and my G15 has never reported a load of more than 62% while running FSX and thats with a load of addons going stuff like GEXe,FSX France VFR,3Dlights ect ect ect head tracking AA+AF and an OS in the background

hope that helps

This is Austria Pro X. I'm getting a solid 25fps using maximum autogen with this.

As Always nice shots Silly,FTX looks so so tempting...i think i'll drop for it but i'll have to wait till the end of the month as my FSX buget is at low and payday is a few weeks away

Your Austria Pro X shots look a hell of a lot better than the ones on aerosofts website any thing scenic in that pack? im not much of an urban flyer myself i much perfer deserts,montain ranges or national parks

It covers the entire country of Austria with custom landclass, textures, and high resolution mesh of the Austrian Alps, with photo scenery like whats seen above covering four different cities.

With SP1/SP2 it does, but the multithreading code only helps with load time, in flight terrain texture loading, and to reduce stutters. It has no effect on frame rate.

By the way the FTX shots above are from Tazmania, which is very scenic.

My joystick died earlier today. A little piece of my died as well.

Now I just have to wait until my budget allows me to get a new one.
