I'm using an external FPS Limiter (FPS Limiter 0.2 I think it's called). However I've come across some strange situations while using it.
Generally, it won't work at all or limit any framerate whatsoever. However, I found that if I put the d3d9.dll from the ENB series in the FS folder, it will work! Odd.
Also, whilst it's working, I get a general FPS increase of around 5-7, which is great. However, every minute for about ten seconds I get HORRENDOUS stuttering, I mean frames down to about 14 to 22 and jerkiness... then all of a sudden it will jump back up to 32 where I've limited it at. I've verified that I get NO stuttering without using the FPS limiter. So it's definitely that.
So now I'm faced with a conundrum. It's driving me crazy because I KNOW that 5-7 more fps are available, but I can't get at them properly without frustration. Does anyone know why this framerate limiter won't work unless d3d9.dll is in the FSX folder? Or why I'm getting these awful stutters? Anything to do with the CFG, my graphics card?
