as an admin twice. On my system the first time it was run the command deleted the value and a success message was generated. The second time it was run the error appeared becasue the value it was trying to delete did not exist.
With HPET on:
will give a response that will include the following two values in the display:
with HPET off the following value will be inlcuded in the response:
It seems that you are seeing the correct response for HPET off. I would use the commands to turn both HPET values on and then both off so that you get the responses as above and see if that then makes any difference.
I am no expert just trying to help based upon what I have seen on my system.
As for the effects files that you need to edit to turn them off I did do this myself when I was trying to see if it was just one particular effect causing the problem. I cannot remember what file I was editing though.
Maybe you can do it from the aircraft.cfg file itself by putting dummy entries (fx_dummy) in the file instead of actual effects as described under ‘Effects’ on this page of the SDK doc:
Disabling HPET doesn’t work for me. I tried a couple times, the reading of the bootloader is as yours but I still have the massive FPS loss.
And for some reason disabling the effects in the Asobo folder doesn’t work neither.
I tried to add the fx_dummy but the vapor effects are still kicking in killing my framerate:
Replacing the effects in line 55-58 didn’t work neither
Can someone show the rest of us where to find the VisualEffectLIbrary.xml for those of us who purchased the game through MS Store app. i am not seeing the fs-base-effects in the game folder. i’ve got fs-base-onboarding/propdefs/spb/ui/videos.
I’m having the same issue with the IndiaFoxtEcho F-35 (the frame rate drops by about 15-20 fps) and to a much lesser extent wit the F-18 (about 5 fps less).
I’m have an Intel CPU, though. Disabling the effects in the VisualEffects Library XML fixed the problem for me as well. It’s unfortunate to lose those cool effects but losing 20 fps ever time I pull back on the stick just wasn’t acceptable.
