    frame and data rates decreasing in recent GC versions

    Hi!

    I am writing in the name of my colleague Tomek, who is my software test
    driver . He would like to report the following problem:

    GC430 runs at twice more FPS than any following version (actually from 432
    up to 436). Also Data Rate decreases to approx 1012 in the last version.

    430 works the best and we do not know whether it is temporary problem or
    constant tendency. Obviously it it is constant soon we will land at 1fps .

    COmputer is Celeron 2.2+Radeon9500, so enough to run FS smoothly, not only
    few bitmaps of glass cockpit.

    We will be gratefull for any feedback about this matter.

    Best regards

    Michal & Tomek

    Hi! Could you send the 430 build to me by mail so that I could do some
    testings aswell? I experience microstutters here.

    Re: frame and data rates decreasing in recent GC versions

    Any updates about this? I haven't observed such drops here... I may have to

    add something like an "EKG" for framerates to help check these things.

    Also, is other software running on that PC? Is the option UseTimer on or off

    in the INI, and what is the FS framerate?

    Ciao

    On that PC is running only GC and Wide FS. UseTimer is OFF, FS framerate is
    30.
    When I have changed graphic card on GF5200 everything is OK.
    Problem is with card ATI Radeon 9500 (I tested different drivers).

    Thank you for the update.

    So the stutters seemingly come from the driver? Did you try the driver
    listed on the Notams page with the ATI card?

    I tested:
    5-6_xp-2k_dd_cp_wdm_23864 (Recommended)
    5-5_xp-2k_dd
    5-7_xp-2k_dd_cp_wdm_24085
    6-3_xp-2k_dd_ccc_wdm_enu_30895
    6-4_xp-2k_dd_31959
    There is always just the same:
    GC430 runs at twice more FPS than any following version (actually from 432 up
    to 436)

    FPS are quite irrelevant when it comes to getting data from FS... in any
    case, I haven't been experiencing a 50% drop in framerates here.

    Could it be an AntiAliasing setting in the ATI which messes things up?

    Do you get the old framerate on the GeForce now?

    Ciao

    Enrico

    Tests on same computer:
    ATI Radeon 9500 (drivers 5.6)
    GC430 - Fps 56
    GC436 - Fps 28

    GF FX5200 (drivers 66.93)
    GC430 - Fps 86
    GC436 - Fps 60

    Possible, that radeon is spoiled. I will check other and I will serve
    results.
