Highest FPS Ever Recorded In FS9? :D

Fri Nov 03, 2006 12:16 am

So I just removed the limiter for fun to see how high my fps would go.. does anyone get a similar fps?

I've had mine upto about 120 - that was with no antivirus, no MSN, no portable firefox... just FS2002 (as it was at the time, i'm now on FS2004. I haven't checked on FS2004). To be honest, it's not something i wanna do often, having no antivirus. Usually, i average about 30-50 flying, at bigger airports with AI at it's highest, plus with some added AI (can't remember the name of the program, damn it..) i get 20 or so. Pretty good for a system that's coming up on 2 years old (granted, it's had a gig of RAM, 120GB HDD added to it's original 40GB (!!) one.)

What does that have to do with your fps?

Anyway I usually have my fps locked at 30. more fps isn't needed.

Runs in the background, therefore taking system resources away from FS9 therefore slowing it down.

chris, BAW076 has a high spec PC and with everything at full, gets over 100 FPS, he'd easily get 300 with everything off.

Havent tried mine as of yet, will do soon though.

We need screenies of highest fPS over a terrain. thats a better thing to see. The open sky is always the highest FPS to have.

sadly I can only get 30-45 FPS in the sky in FSX haha, but 2XX in FS9

When flight sim is open (like when your flying, or on the ground) press Shift + z 2 or 3 times.

You should make sure that it will be able to run FSX as well! My pc is struggling with it despite of the excellent fps that I get in fs9

Problem is no one will really know how to make FSX run as well as FS9 does on modern pcs at the minute.

I loaded up flight simulator earlier and was hitting 180-190FPS with a default Md83 (trying to get it to work for someone) and then hit 150FPS with the PSS777

Nice to see the stats that everyone is getting with FS9, but the real question is....what are the specs for each of your computers? If you have a top of the line CPU with High-end dual PCI Express videos cards, then you will get high FPS. If someone is still running a low-end CPU and video card, then they will suffer with FPS. Lets see those computer specs to go along with mentioning FPS.

Fair enough but what are your settings? if we all ran Ultra low graphics anyone would hit that.

I also forgot to mention im running visual settings mostly at 80% and running AI during flight at 100% and approaching a big airport (to land) about 60%.

Something does not seem right here, these are my specs and I am lucky to average 20 FPS. I run my FS9 with all settings maxed out except AI traffic which is set for 75%. My add-on scenery programs include "Birds Eye View", "Real Environment Pro" and other freeware scenery mesh.

    * Gigabyte GA-K8NSC-939 Motherboard
    * AMD Athlon(TM) 64 3500+ Processor
    * 4x512 MB Kingston 400 MHz DDR PC3200 DIMM 3-3-3 RAM
    * 160Gb & 300Gb Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 Serial ATA HDDs
    * 128Mb eVGA 6600GT nVidia geForce AGP 8x Video Card

How much add-on scenery and what type of AI traffic do you use?

In the other thread in the Hobby forum, note that QANTAS744ER runs up to 361 FPS on FSX with max scenery settings. Just imagine the FPS he could get on FS9 with that.  Wow!
