Forgot that for now mate have you installed the drivers i linked you too?

also as Smarty has said its a CPU intensive game you may have some CPU intensive tasks running all the time , resulting in low framerates ingame , could you hold down ctrl and alt the press delete once then seleck the task manager option , open the processes tab take a screen shot of it and post it up here

That actually looks pretty normal process wise. However since the background tasks are scheduled and/or dynamic it's not always easy to catch a culprit (providing there is one)

One possibe cause may be ESET. Try turning off the resident scanner if it's enabled to see if it has an impact.

Another thing to try, would be to set the affinity of fs9.exe to utilise both cores. (right-click on the process, select only one core, ok it and then re right-click and select both cores again)

I noticed with FSX, that it would max a single core and give choppier play until I reset the affinity to 'even' out the load. It's not a 'stellar' improvement, but it did smooth play out somewhat. From memory, FS9 and FSX weren't designed to take advantage of dual/multi cores.

The other less desirable, but perhaps necessary move would be to lower a few details such as draw distance, ground texture sizes, cloud density etc (it's been a while since I had it installed, so some of those settings may have different names.)

How isnt it? Its an old GFX card. Newer games would get low frame rates if the card isnt able to keep up.

As a general rule yes, but:

Whilst a faster card would certainly help to a varying degree, bare in mind the OP had no real problems with framerates with that same card in XP.

However, since Seven has more general 'overhead' usage on the CPU (more background services etc), manages memory differently etcetera, upgrading to a newer card for great improvement isn't as clear cut in this case.

Simply put, the game loves high CPU clock speeds since it does the vast majority of the work.

When the FS series was developed, they 'planned ahead' for longevity and expected that CPU speeds would exponentially rise to match projected performance.

However, this did not play out exactly as planned...

Another thing you can try Boeing in conjunction to updating your video drivers would be to make sure you have the latest DirectX End-User Runtimes (February 2010)


Download details: DirectX Redist (February 2010)

*NB, these may have little to no impact, but will certainly not hurt to try.

i have a queston.............what are you using NHancer for? what are doing with it? custom profile?

the two nvidia services you have running "driver helper service" you can disable them if you like also i dont notice any "stereoscopic driver" instances running , have you disabled that service? (you dont need it unles your using the 3D galsses im just asking cos if you had the latest drivers that service would be running , and you need the latest drvers )
