Gang - looking for some input. I'm a FPS snob. I need smooth scenery and in most default scenery I get 60 FPS. With certain add-ons, that can drop to 30-40. But I have noticed recently that upon landing at a default airport (O'Hare in particular) the FPS drop as I land, and stay low all the way into the gate. Then I'll shut down that flight, and restart one at O'Hare and the FPS problem continues. Yet, if I shut down FS9 altogether and restart it and go to O'Hare, it's back to smooth FPS (60). What can happen during a flight that would drop FPS to the point that getting them back to normal requires a entire restart of FS9. Is it a memory issue, graphic card issue, any thoughts?
