    212 FRAME RATES!

    Not sure if anyone wants to know, but with ONE computer, I am running 3 to go outside views, 3 instrument monitors and two left and right views at an average of 190 frame rates if I want them.
    My cockpit is totally stable and all sliders are across to the right!
    My PC has Asis 2gb serving 3 to go and all instruments, and an Asis 1gb serving both sideview monitors.
    Some people say that you cannot have 8 monitors running properly from one machine! Why bother with "Wideview?"

    Win7
    8g ram.

    TONY.

    Is your plane stationary in the middle of a very large field

    What a stupid question!
    Do you fly in fields?

    I fly a Twin Otter all over the world and in different circumstances. The frame rates never vary, and are frequently over 200 - although I set them at 35.

    Perhaps you would let me in on the joke that is behind your question?

    I thought that the "smiley" might have been a clue?, Published frame rates are meaningless unless the context is also given. There is a world of difference between being on the runway at Heathrow or flying in cloudless skies at 30,000 over a desert. However, clearly my humour was lost or not appreciated

    See your point now!
    On runways or flying in the clouds, the frame rates never vary much below 180. I fly in all conditions day and night - frame rates stay roughly the same!

    You use add ons like megascenery, other payware programs,
    I`m very interested how to get those results,
    I`m flying cessna`s with dutch scenery, real weather ,mega airports with Aes ,
    but I`m getting not more then 28 fps on a good day,
    What are your pc specs and how what did you change to get these results

    Windows7.
    Asus 2gb for 3 to go front views and 3 instrument screens.
    Asus 1gb for both side views.
    (total monitors = .
    8gb ram.
    3.5gb processor.
    SSD drive.

    All graphics sliders on full.

    I don't use any add on's apart from my own airport here in Plymouth, and the Twin Otter that I fly.
    Real weather can be used without altering the frame rates.

    I think that people have been so used to using Wideview and multiple computers, that they have not bothered to see if it will work with just one machine. My system was built by my local engineer without any tweaking at all. It was put together exactly as you see it.

    What's all the fuss?

    Thanks for the info Tony. I think most of us would like the same results, that's why the questions.... Please share with us how you are able to do that.

    Thanks,
    Matt O.

    Hi Matt.

    Some years ago, when I first built a sim, I managed to provide using Matrox Parhelia, and two small graphics cards, 3 front outside views, and three instrument views. At the time this was a bit unusual as I had 6 monitors working. This "old" setup is shown in the old avatar.
    Using a more powerful computer, and powerful graphics cards, and using 8gb of ram I am now able to run the 6 monitors plus two side monitors at very high frame rates.
    Previous posts show my setup if you are interested?
    If you have any specific questions, please free to ask.

    I use wideview, not just for better frame rates (which is proven on my machine), but also because it gives me accurate side views which can be properly lined up with the front view.

    If I recall correctly, Triple head togo enlarges the front view only and then spreads that across three monitors, that gives a distorted view. So we are not comparing apples with apples.

    In respect of frame rates, I cannot achieve anything like yours even on a single 4.4ghz machine - indeed I would love 30fps when banking over London. It all depends on the use of addons eg photorealistic scenery, cloud draw distances, screen resolution, airport and 3d building density, AI traffic and weather engines etc. These addons are down to personal preference and expectations. Doubtless I could get much better frame rates, but the visual experience would be inadequate to me.
