So all internal graphic settings in the sim are maxed (Advanced Settings - sliders to the right)?

Cheers!

Just out of curiosity (and the fact that I'm confused here), are you have trouble with one of our products or someone else's, or perhaps MSTS?

Either way, how about a screen shot of what you mean?

Cheers!

If you don't have a web site to upload the screen to, then just tell me what you have a problem with blink.gif my stuff or something else for MSTS?

Cheers!

It might be a MIP Map problem you have.

Open your properties for the Geforce and go to advanced options.
You will find a droplist with "MIP Map Detail", ensure yourself this being set
to "Best Quality".

You also have the latest Drivers?

How are the graphics of other games on your pc? Are they also worse or just only MSTS? When you think it's your graphics card then get in contact with the vendor of it because they should help you when you aren't satisfied with the product.

If it's only MSTS, we would like to see a pic and see how worse it is. So what about sending me one (in jpg format) by e-mail and I'll post it in here.

As for MSTS II, I have no idea but with MS you never know.

Take Care,

Dennis

>I am sending a 500kb file...

Hah????, it was 3.54 MB!!!!!!! guz I need a new harddisk lol

Anyway, I have it and I'll show 2 pics of it. The first is resized just to have a look at the full pic you sent.

The Second pic is cropped on true scale, so that's what you are seeing when you are in the sim.

pic 1
[disabled]

pic 2
[disabled]

Now what do you mean? The Cab? Well that's the bitmap, you can sharpen it in a paintprogram.

The Virtual world? I see nothing strange for MSTS. The scenery is always abit blurry in the distance.
If you mean the mountain on the left, that's because you are really close to the terrain texture so you see them
zoomed. There are a few updates at Train-sim.com I believe, and your railtracks can be updated too.

Anyhow, nothing really strange for a default MSTS without texture updates.

Anyone else?

PS: That cab, hmmm where did I see it before? lol

Take Care,

Dennis

That is a MLW-630 Cab...If you look closely...you'll see lines in the cabviews...Is that normal? Well 3.12 mb takes about 20min-30min here on 56k... biggrin.gif And Im proud of having 56k too sad.gif
4xs Anti Alias is the best right? btw, What is the highest pixel # you've ever seen on MSTS (ex:1280x1240x32) If I could get higher...could you help me there? thx cool.gif
