469: My Latest Nvidia Setting

Thanks to all who shares their ideas about adjusting refresh rate to reduce micro-stutters in my last Post.  Frankly speaking, I didn’t really pay any attention to adjust it until recently.

And after a second thought, although I said the trick doesn’t have any effect on my rig, I think it could still be a candidate solution to those who have the issue.

For those who are interested, following is the Nvidia Settings (under native 60Hz refresh rate) I’ve been using in the last few months. Continue reading


468: A Probable Micro-stuttering Cure

Micro-stuttering is one of the most severe headaches to almost all flightsimmers and it is not easy to cure.   If have a 4K monitor or a 4K TV, you may try cutting its refresh-rate from 60Hz to 30Hz.

This erroneous version was released in September Continue reading

466: Generic G5 HSI Released

When the generic G5 style PFD was released in April this year, I was saying that a matching G5 style HSI was being planned (actually was being built) to go with it.   However, the project was given ways to many other instrument over the months.  Until now, it has finally completed.

Doesn’t like the G5 PFD which in some ways has been customized to be used on specific aircraft, the generic G5 HSI can generally fit on all aircraft that run on standard FS commands as its name suggests.

Besides working best in pair with the generic PFD, it is also a good replacement to the basic Directional Gyro when used alone.

Current users of the Generic G5 PFD, Continue reading
