Fixes and tips for FSX cfg settings

Unread post by DRCW »

Hello again,
For new simmers I have put together some fixes that might make your flying even more up to date ( Graphics wise). The first
part will give you the main fixes needed in FSX. If you have FSX Steam Edition you will not need to do this first section.
( These fixes are intended for systems with quad core or better CPU's and a minimum of 4 gigs RAM or better )
In other words, more modern systems.

Section one: known & needed changes

First we need to access the main FSX config file ( Make sure you have set windows to show hidden files and folders )

Select Start / Computer / C: / Users / Your name or the computers name / Appdata / Roaming / Microsoft / FSX

Once you open the FSX folder locate the fsx.cfg file and open it to your notepad. It should look like this :
