  • Frame rate test HD capture with Xbox game capture
  • content_pasteFor some ?? reason the capture file was only twice the size of my usual stuttery captures, at 630mb instead of ~ 300mb. That's fine, I can live with that. But - HD and no stuttering.
    So the workflow changes again... I'll do the preflight - map - drone footage in OBS, do the inflight with the Xbox game capture, and splice them together post flight in Windows 'Photos' app.

  • Patch 1.15.7.0 Frame Rate test --/o\-- Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 --/o\--
  • content_pasteUnfortunately I haven't yet optimised my OBS recording pipeline. OBS is running on a second PC and is introducing it's own lag and stutters. Anyway the FPS counter tallies with what I saw - a smooth experience hovering around 50fps.

    WineD3D For Windows is a DirectX 1-11 to OpenGL wrapper based on WineD3D, which is an almost full implementation of DirectX used in Wine. Even if Windows supports DirectX natively, using WineD3D can enhance backwards compatiblity with older games, especially on Windows 8 and newer that don't support 16 bit screen modes. Another possible use is to emulate unsupported versions of DirectX, or porting DirectX applications to OpenGL without having to rewrite the rendering code. Please note that WineD3D is far from perfect, and many games will not work.

  • content_pasteI set up the sim for an approach to runway 16R at Sydney airport. This is an approach familiar to Sydney residents on the North Shore and inner west. One of the main landmarks for the pilot on this approach is the Gladesville Bridge, which became visible as I turned the graphics settings up.
