Very bad TIR stutter

Post by alcav55 » Fri Dec 30, 2011 11:47 am

Hi,

a few weeks ago I posted on this forum asking for help with a problem I have with TIR5 on FS9.Unfortunatly I did not get much in the way of a reply.Perhaps someone could do so this time.

I have a prominent graphics stutter in FS9 only when there is movement within the sim eg. taxying,flying,pushing back etc.

TIR is ok when no movement.

I have tried an uninstall of TIR and replaced it with the earier version,sadly to no avail.

This software cost a fair amount of money and I have been unable to use it as yet!

Regards........... disappointed

If you reduce your graphics settings, does the stutter go away?

'fraid not!

I have a dual boot system running FS9 on XP, and FSX on Vista.I have no issues at all with FSX,and I consider FSX to be the lesser of the two from a graphics and processor point of view.I have 3ghz processor and 8gbRam on 32bit system (ram effectively 3.5gb).

I would emphasise that as soon as sim movement stops,all is well.

To try to make it clearer,the stutter is produced as it seems by a random superimpostion of the window that the camera is seeing.I have btw checked the camera for random light problems.

sorry for the late reply,recently been ill.

Graphics card is Nividea 8800 gt no problem with TIR on my dual booted FSX,so don't see a g/card problem.

It seems no one is bothered about my problem.I am extremely disappointed with TIR and the support.Waste of over �100 !!

Out of curiosity, what is preventing you from running FS9 on vista 64? The symptoms sound like the system is struggling to find the resources necessary to render the background images.

Are there any other peripherals (flight sticks, lighting, et. cetera) that are plugged into FS9?

Hi....

in a word no!

Fs9 runs ALL other apps fine,so I do not relish the thought of changing it over to Vista without any certainty that a remedy lies therein.
