View Full Version : My single projector set up

hi all

I am using a Dell S300 projector (just 1) for the outside view however I am having alot of poor graphics displays as you can see from my video, especially towards the end (last 30 sec or so) outside view landing,

is there anything i can do to reduce this? or is this the inherent limitations of using a short throw projector with a resolution of 1280 x 800.

It appears as if the settings have changed during the clip. The image is terrible during and after the landing. Up until then though, everything looks fine. Not sure what the cause might be. Check your settings haven't changed somehow. Sorry I can't be more helpful, but i'm sure it's not the projectors fault.

Hi Clayton:

Can you get a "Y" cable and run a standard monitor along with the projector?

Maybe that will help isolate your problem to vidcard or projector.

Lets not forget the y cable also deteriorates the image substantially.

I'm gonna guess graphics adapter...

hi, so do you think it is my GPU?

What are your graphic settings at? The only thing that led me to thing graphics adaptor is it gets worse as you are coming in to land, which usually means more details (thus more work for the adapter) than at higher altitude.

It looks to me like an artifact of the antialiasing. The FS series has always been a bit odd about how it handles antialiasing, particularly if light bloom is enabled. Since this is done as a post-render effect and the runways are drawn as billboards, what you end up with is beautifully antialiased, mipmapped imagery with non-antialiased runways. Try turning off the advanced "DirectX 10" effects and see if that changes anything.
