Hello. I was wondering if anyone else has this problem and if there are any solutions. It seems that text is misaligned on FSPassengers, Map! (as seen in this screen shot). It also carries through to the panel... look at the 3rd throttle power, the "bolded" white line is misaligned along with the "330" on the far right. I've also noticed this on my Default GPS. How does I set the AA outside of the sim?

And for what it's worth, this did not happen when I had FS9. ! It doesn't matter if I move the boxes, make them bigger or smaller it still looks like the text isn't completely lined up.

Looks like texture tearing. First off, you have very old drivers. ATI Catalyst 10.10 drivers should be out by now. UPDATE THEM MONTHLY. This is very important. That may fix that.

Otherwise, sounds like a vertical-sync problem. Open catalyst control center and set Vertical sync to default on.

As for AA. DON'T use the FSX graphics settings for anti-aliasing, change them directly on the ATI Catalyst control center.

I tried everything you said but no luck. I am unable to find the 10.10 drivers. Any other suggestions?

Aviation hobby is a relatively small and lightly visited section of the forums, so getting technical help for FSX here is difficult. I'd advise you to go over to and make a (free) account on their forums. You'd be able to get some help in about 5 hours instead of 5 years.
