Did you use Bojotes tool? If so then get a fresh CFG by deleting it and letting FSX make a new one and reset your settings. I found that Bojotes tool made my performance worse than adding these tweaks myself.(The wideview one isn't for performance though) - then add these:

 

[bufferpools]
Poolsize = 0
 
[JOBSCHEDULER]
AffinityMask=14
 
[DISPLAY]
WideViewAspect=True
 
[Main]
FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION=0.2

Never use bojoto! It deleted my section, my friend tweaked my cfg and i got way better results than bojoto! Btw @iFlysimX you cannot ask if the cfg needs any changes because we all have different systems

I have never like Bojotes. I much prefer my personal tweaks especially since I read into what each one does, (thanks to @Kosta ) and I ran tests on mine to see what was better and my personal CFG was much better than the Bojotes one

Exactly.

 

Anyway this section needs corrections:

 

BufferPools=0
PoolSize=0

RejectThreshold=786432

 

First of all, if you don't have a GPU with more than 1gb of ram, then poolsize=0 is not a good idea. If you want to keep it, then bufferppol section must look like this:

 

[bUFFERPOOLS]

PoolSize=0 (or usepools=0)

 

RejectThreshold works only with enabled pool and poolsize=x, as far as I know.

 

[sCENERY]
SmallPartRejectRadius=2
 
Does nothing significant on good systems (no FSP gain). I've tested it.
 
[TERRAIN]
SWAP_WAIT_TIMEOUT=10
 
Same goes to this tweak, apsolutely unnecessary tweak, didn't saw any difference with it.

 

The golden rule of tweaking fsx cfg is simple, delete it, and after add ONLY important ones:

 

[GRAPHICS]
HIGHMEMFIX=1
 
[bufferpools]
 
 
[JOBSCHEDULER]
AffinityMask=x
 
[DISPLAY]
WideViewAspect=True

@Pe11e

The most important one he should keep is the one I said:

FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION=0.2
he uses 0.15 which is perfectly fine - the lower the value the more fps but them more chance of terrain blurries if your CPU can't keep up as well. I noticed a huge difference changing from the default of 0.33 to 0.2 particularly in Orbx regions.

Hmmm, I didn't tested FTFF in ORBX regions, only in Europe + UTX, didn't notice any fps boost (maybe 5% max). FTFF works fine with limited frames, I keep main at unlimited.

That would probably explain it then, I ran the Airbus X Extended in UK2000 Newcastle with Orbx England and got 15fps with FTFF on default. This is with all scenery sliders maxed keep in mind. I then went and changed it to 0.2 and was getting the full 40fps that mine is locked to.

Wow. The difference is unrealisticaly huge! I tested FTFF once with locked frames at 30, kept FTFF at 0.20, then 0.15, on my system it behaving strange, better fps by 10% maybe, but scenery loading is slower by far. Didn't test it with NGX, PMDG kills FPS like it is payed to do that. :)

On my system unlimited frames and default FTFF works like a charm, with tweaked bufferpools. I spent at least two weeks tweaking fsx.cfg two years ago, and it was wasted time regarding perfomance. But I learned a lot about certain parameters, and when to use them. The thing is, I changed motherboard, cpu and gpu a year ago, so all that tweaks I used are not good anymore. So I spent another weeks tweaking and testing FSX few months ago. And yes, I'm one of these people "tweaked more, flew less", blah.

Yeah the scenery loading isn't too bothersome most of the time, for me at least with my i7 @ 4.2GHz it seems to hold its own at keeping the scenery loading fine with the low value

I completely wiped out Win7 and reinstalled it few days ago, so I'm currently in FSX reinstall state. due to lack of time, every day I will install one addon only (UTX, MyTraffic...).
Interesting tests so far! Before Win7 and FSX reinstall, FPS was around 60 in my test situation on EDDM, with MyTraffic @ 24%, UTX + SceneryTech + FSGenesis Europe mesh + REX textures. I loaded same situation after FSX + Acceleration reinstall and saw mindblowing 95 fps! I'm quite interested will FPS drop to ~60 again after all addons installed. I will test this properly:

 

10 test fps

20 install one addon

30 GOTO 10

 

Logically I expect MyTraffic will cause slight drop in FPS (about 15-20%), so I will install it last. I don't know, I feel optimistic after this 95fps at default FSX with my slider settings. I'm certain that fps in FSX default in previous reinstall few months ago was not over 75fps. Who knows, maybe clean win7 and lack of crap proccesses running in background caused this better fps.
