The long-awaited DX10 Scenery Fixer has been released: http://forum.avsim.net/topic/421399-dx10-fixer-released/

The price seemed a bit steep to me, but I am happy I bought it. Even though it is called "DX10 Scenery Fixer", it also fixed a number of aircraft issues for me: I can finally fly my imported Century of Flight aircraft in FSX in all its DX10 glory smile


Undercarriage lever a bit sticky was it, Sir?

Yeah that price point is keeping me away for now, especially since following the AVSIM DX10 howto and his free patch and manual fixes has not resulted in a smooth flying experience for me (I get some strange vsync tearing).

Hopefully the product will eventually be carried by Flight1 where it will have their 30day money back guarantee and I can try it and not be out $35 if it doesn't work any better than the free patches...

At one point in time, I saw a nice FPS boost and smoother performance with DX10. Based on that, I was (at one point) planning on buying the fixer when it came out.

However, that was several addons, tweaks, and drivers ago. Prior to the fixer's release, I tried DX10 again and saw worse performance compared to DX9. If it was $10, it might give it a try anyway. But at $35, it's just not worth it. Not with all the cool stuff ORBX is coming out with...

You gotta pick it up. It's great. The black squares problem in FTX Global is gone now. The flickering runway problem in some airports: gone. The rain distortions: gone.

I've never really tried DX10... is it worth it? What does it do? Graphical updates? Faster? Less CTDs?


There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

I think the biggest sell seems to be cockpit shadows:

Cockpit shadows, better water and (slightly) better FPS.


I don't get a performance improvement with DX10 though.

Thanks Kludger and Heretic.

I, too, am on the fence on DX10. Wondering if it is worth all the "potential" hassle. I am definitely not a "tweaker", I just know I would mess things up! sigh

I have never even checked the preview button in FSX, and using Bejotes automatic tweaker, I have a good experience in DX9, and don't want to fix what ain't broken. Cockpit shadows would be nice, but are not essential, to me. I do like the idea of unloading work from the CPU to the GPU (although I run on a laptop, my GPU has 3GB VRAM), but...??

My FPS is 2-3 times faster under DX10, but then again, I turn my graphics up way high, and set target FPS at "unlimited." So where I get 20 FPS using DX9, I get over 50 with DX10. Where I get 9 FPS with DX9, I get 21-24 with DX10. It's consistent. And, of course, DX10 simply looks better, especially the water. That's probably the biggest difference. But again, I have the water slider all the way to the right on maximum. I have traffic on 100% even with third party traffic program installed. Running 1920 x 1200 x 32.

You may be using more modest settings and limiting your target FPS, so may not see much difference in FPS.

Keep this rule in mind: the greater you push the graphics, the bigger the gap between DX9 and DX10.
