HIGHMEMFIX=1, How do I install?


Recommended Posts

Any FSX user who does not understand CFG tweaks or does not know how to apply them should be reading the Tweaking guides in the stickies at the top of this forum.

 

The link above was offered as a REASON requested by the OP, not as a tweaking guide.

 

Yes, you do not need to download any "utility" to create these entries.

 

If you want to apply ANY tweaks, read the tweaking guide stickies at the top of this forum. Do no use the utility in the referenced link above which I should not have provided.

 

HIMEMFIX does not speed up FSX nor does it keep it from crashing. It does not fix OOM problems caused by other than your graphics card. HIMEMFIX and many other tweaks are discussed at length in the tweaking guides of which there are many and of varying quality and usefulness.

Be aware not ALL published tweaks work on every system and the user is responsible for FSX problems caused in inappropriate entries. The HIMEMFIX however is a well established stable tweak for those with 1GB GCard memory or more. If yours is smaller than 1G (512MB was common when FSX was shipped) then this tweak is not likely to benefit you.

A lot of reading is right. About 60% rants and quotes to dig out the gems. He must take it in the shorts a lot because he certainly spends a lot of effort defending himself.

 

Those who are curios about it should get something from this quote (And many like it in the document):

 

"If a user can render more scenery out of their system after the aircraft has taken full priority, then fine! I too like a good scene and it is a wonderful perk! But all too often the primary goal for 'Flight Simulator' is lost to a users endless spiral of tweaking and searching for ways to see far MORE than their system can properly render and in the process end up frustrated and .... eventually if they are fortunate enough they may end up here reading this document!"

 

If you want to read this for the purpose of getting max eye candy with all the sliders up on your sim and 100 FPS then this guy is not going to help you get there.
