I can't seem to get rid of these on aircraft textures. I'm using 1280x1024x32 resolution/color. Global textures set to "massive". For some reason I can't get "Aircraft" settings to "Ultra-high"...it won't stick, and reverts back to "High". Perhaps some type of system limitation?
I've tried setting AF and AA on the nVidia card, like most here, but it's a MAJOR quality drop on my system, for some reason. My best terrain texture and FPS are AA-"allow application..."(with AA checked in FS9) and AF- 8x, with "tri-linear" set in the game.
Many of these, I suppose, would have no effect on the jaggies on aircraft. I would like to know a direction I should take. Hardware upgrades are acceptable suggestions (see sig).
Also note, when I start an XP Home "performance" graph, then fly...I'm always maxed out on CPU usage, until I close FS9. Is this "normal" for a system comparable to mine?
Any info appreciated (yeah, Mike...I'll read a manual if necessary
