I originally asked the below in another thread but then deleted it because it seemed a bit off topic. These questions arose based on info provided in other threads regarding setting up FSX. I'm running a Win7/64 system.
1. It was recommended to avoid the DX10 preview; what does the Direct X preview do (or not do) in FSX?
2. It was recommended that Win7/64 users add uiautomation.dll for Vista into the root FSX directory --why?
3. Would someone please explain what the Filtering setting does ( Bilinear, Trilinear, etc)? What is the recommended FSX Filtering setting?
4. The Settings home screen allows you to save your settings setup, and I assume in addition to the graphics, scenery, WX, etc settings this also saves the mappings you have setup for the buttons and levers on your controller(s) wrt the FSX keyboard commands (under Settings/Controls/Buttons and Keys). So do most users save and load different setups ( different controller button assignments) for different a/c because of the different a/c systems ( e.g., fixed vs retractable gear, fixed vs constant speed prop, spoilers vs no spoilers, jet a/c vs piston a/c, etc)?
