In the FS2002 config file, I changed "terrain_extended_levels" from 1 to 4 and left everything else alone. I'm not sure what it did, but it appears to have made the scenery clearer and to have cut down on the "catch up". Perhaps some one can tell me what's happening. I picked up the hint from Flight Sim Gateway. Is there a feature here which discusses improving graphics?
