I have an AMD 1.2 Ghz cpu, 512 Mb DDR 266 ram, Geforce 3 TI200 64 Mb video card, 80 Gb hdd, Windows XP Home. I've downloaded the resized autogen textures, the cloud fix from FSW, the latest drivers from Nvidia, and the latest version of DirectX (9.0b), and have set the autogen and other sliders to lower than before I had to reinstall FS9 due to a hard drive failure, and I seem to be getting slower and slower frame rates than before the hard drive failure. I keep trying to reduce textures and settings but it just seems to get worse.:( I'm about to give up on FS9 also, and go back to FS 2k2, until I can afford a new high-end system. Any help or suggestions out there?
