SteveFX - DX10 Scenery Fixer

Current version 2.6

The aim of the product is to resolve the issues that cause some add on scenery to appear grey in Microsoft Flight Simulator X DX10 Preview mode. It can also assist with add on aircraft that similarly appear grey but support in this case is more limited and has limitations when it comes to night lighting.

Additionally it bundles all the DX10 fixes that have been published to the Avsim Library into a combined easy to install package. This includes the flashing runway fix, disappearing bridges fix, Virtual Cockpit shadow improvements and more.

Legacy Scenery
The scenery that appears grey always does so from dusk till dawn, it appears normal during daylight hours. Scenery that behaves in this manner uses the FS8 BGL format rather than the XML BGL format introduced for FS9 and FSX. This older scenery format is sometimes called ASM or SCASM. Although it is a legacy file format many scenery designers continue to prefer it even for new FSX scenery as it gives more conditional control of when objects are drawn. Throughout this manual I will refer to this style of scenery as legacy to distinguish it from scenery that uses the FSX SDK.

Legacy Aircraft
Aircraft that use the FS8 BGL format in their model typically appear grey all the time. FS8 aircraft may separately have issues with incompatible textures which cause small elements such as wheels to be missing altogether. Throughput this manual I will refer to these aircraft as legacy aircraft to distinguish them from aircraft that use the FSX SDK.

Bundled Fixes

  • Improved VC Shadows
  • Bridges Appear at Night
  • Runways that don't Flicker

New Fixes
  • Rain/Snow Similar to DX9
  • Hight Definition Jet VC Shadows
  • Red Lattice Towers
  • FTX Global Lights
Important Note
Please ensure that that DX10 preview mode performs satisfactorily on your PC before purchase. DX10 Scenery Fixer only addresses graphical issues with DX10 Preview mode - it does not provide a performance boost.

The tool works around flaws that exist in the flight simulator core software. Not every DX10 issue can be fixed. I have selected what I believe to be the best compromises. In particular if a legacy scenery does not currently work during the day with the Avsim patches installed then DX10SceneryFixer will not make it work. If a legacy scenery does not completely work then I am sorry but there is little more that can be done.

System Requirements:
Windows Vista, 7/8, 32/64 bit. Windows XP not supported.
Systems using multiple monitors spread over multiple GPUs are not supported.
