    Default Hardware Tweaking Guide

    Looked into the Sticky above, hardware tweaking guide. Already use Jesus's cfg tweak with NickN setting up FSX guide. I may say, my FSX runs great!! A couple questions though . I changed TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD_1024 t0 4096 and it changed itself back to 1024 when I ran the program. I changed LOD_RADIUS=4.500000 to 6.5000000 and it changed back to 4.5000000. I was wondering why. I slashed out RejectThershold=131073 (///) and added Poolsize=0 and that sure did something NICE! Not sure what and This must have done somethig nice. Added Fiber_Time_Fraction=0.15 in the [Main] section. Improved frame rates across the board including KJFK and KLAX and man the graphics and textures like my F16 Thunderbird just seem more vibrant.

    When you use the FSX options menus to change something, FS writes the default value back to FSX.CFG. Some ways around this:
    1) After editing and loading FSX, avoid the options menus.
    2) After using options and closing FS, open the file again and re-enter the values.
    3) After using options and closing FS, replace the cfg file with a backup you have with the edited values.
    4) Save a custom profile in the UI intro-> Settings screen and place the edited values you want in the cfg file which gets created. Next time you load FSX, load the custom profile and FS will use that profile each time FS loads. FS cannot change the custom profile unless you save a new one with the same name.
