    Shimmering on outside views

    Hi,

    I use the PMDG 737-800 with FS9, AS6, Ultimate Terrain, GE Pro, Ultimate Traffic. I have a 7900 GT invidia GPU and have the FS settings almost maxed out. Display is 1280x1024 and refresh rate is 75 for both the display and GPU card.

    I am having a problem with shimmering when flying straight and level in both forward and side views. However the scenery does not shimmmer when I am in a turn. below is a partial list of FS config settings I am using and attached is a screenshot of the FS settings window.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Rob

    Re: Shimmering on outside views

    Rob,

    The shimering in FS9 is usually caused by the lack of Antialiasing. There is an Antialiasing setting within FS9 setup but it dosn't seem to work with the NVIDIA Cards.
    Turn this setting Off, Download and run nHancer from here http://www.nhancer.com/
    Set up nHancer for FS9 in the same way that it has been set up for FSX Here: http://www.simforums.com/forums/foru...=156769#156769
    Note: where it says "Type Flight Simulator X in the box" you need to use "MS Flight Simulator 2004" instead. also for the Antialiasing I used 4xS instead of 8xS as as I found 8xS setting to look too blurred.

    Hope this helps, It cured all of my shimering

  4. Thanks Geremy Britton thanked for this post
