Actual Flight Sim Settings....

Sat Jan 07, 2006 4:25 am

So, what are your current settings for your flightsim prior to starting a flight.

I'm talking mostly with the display.

100% AI?
Resolution?
Bitmapping thingy....trilinear, bilinear, none?
100% 3-d Clouds?
Cloud distance?

whatcha got?  Wink

Trilinear filtering looks a whole load better than Bilinear! That's the difference!

My settings are everything on 100% including traffic.
