Scenery settings - FSX/Vista/DX10


Recommended Posts

I run FSX on a good Vista Ultimate machine with a 9800 GTX card and it runs well but with a FR of around 10-14.....which is OK usually. Now in the Options/Settings/Scenery there is a box titled "Sample DX10" If I tick this box then restart, the frame rate increases but almost every aircraft loses its livery and becomes a bright white ghost like apparition in the spot plave view.

As I have Vista Ult I believe that includes DX10 anyway.....so .....why is that box there and why does it stuff the a/c graphics when activated?

Theres always something isn't there?

While Vista includes DX10 capabilities FSX will operate in DX9 mode until you check that box, hence the changes.

 

You'll find that your aircraft likely has DXT3 textures which are not supported by DX10, hence the white model without textures. You'll want to convert them to 32-bit or download a different, 32-bit, texture set.
