OK, then upgrade your video driver and then play around with the video settings to see what might be set for newer games that could be relaxed for FMS. Then setup a graphics profile and let the profile override the FMS graphics settings. It is a lot of work. There are other slightly more expensive options. Clearview is about $40 and very nice. It does not have near the amount of airplanes but I am making them for CV along with FMS. Good luck in your efforts. If you find a solution, please share it with others here. -- ggunners
P.S. Some others with photo realistic sceneries have found a solution that involves changing the size of the bottom image so it is not directly divisible by 256. I believe it is in the scenery section of the forum.
