I wanted to share with the community a tuning guide full of useful info to help keep us racing. I've read it over and over.
Nick N. on simforums. http://www.simforums...topic46211.html
I've followed the guide nearly to the letter on a extremely budget computer $160 dell xeon and gtx 750i.
It runs gpl, p&g, rfactor, rbr, etc on triple monitors beautifully!
Can we sticky this somewhere closer to the sims we love; problems with them. Yes, relevant.

Too many words for me. Got thru about half of it before realizing by then was impatiently scanning for keywords, then it all just glazed over before getting lost in the motherboard configuration section.
Thanks Scott, for posting. Really did go thru it with interest.
Perhaps you might post a screenshot of your Nvidia settings?

It's taken me several years to understand and implement - hehe on a system he would probably not approve of anyway .
But I've taken what I can use, his settings in windows should be required
reading to get rid of the trash for a decent simulator . I'd read the parts about
building a fast modern computer with optimism but found a craigslist deal instead -
Well here's Bob Simpson http://srmz.net/inde...opic=6459&st=30
I think this is what I've used recently.
FSX guy - good reading - much shorter: http://www.simforums...topic36586.html
base and advanced settings attached will these work for GPL?

With so much hardware/drivers variation seems its always a guess, (except for gurus like Nick).
Have been working with Bob's settings except my card is a bit less featured than his.
Thanks for sharing your settings...some fun later this afternoon checking them out on my rig.

seeing the shimmering white track edges at parana. I'm glad you asked about this because it looked
terrible. Must have not saved to the exes. I've been away from GPL a little with P&G. Bad!
I tried the base settings posted from Nick's guide but left v-sync off. Not sure why he seemed to contradict himself.
V-sync I understand is bad for what we do. Somewhere in his long guide is an explanation.
Made sure to save to each mod exe in inspector - know what I'm talking about?
Anyway, my results were great for me it must be the keep it simple stupid thing again.
The gamma correction is different from Bob, couple of other things for sure.
Inspector overrides GEM as well with many setting in the rasterizer? Not sure.
Maybe ill provide a screenshot of Gem settings to help. I need to learn more about GEM.
5760 and my bezel correction gives me 6006 x 1080 on 3 22" dell lcd's.
Looked better than ever and I enjoyed Brands in the 66 Lotus 43 at 19 cars!
Back on GPL!

The results ended up being really good. Everything works much faster now. I can zip along from web site to website as fast as I can click them. I have a 65meg connection, and never could figure out why it took so long to bring up web sites. All my sims run smoother now too, and no lockups so far.
I got stopped at one point though, so didn't do it all. I'm suppose to right click the windows icon on the bottom taskbar to install another program. I don't have that icon. Any ideas?

It only took 4 hours.
Posted Aug 24 2015 - 10:22 AM
Glad things have improved those were my results.
Missing start button here maybe...http://answers.micro...8214e348?page=1
Never see that before. Right click desktop leads to personalize with options for icons; right click taskbar leads to properties with a customize icons area or start
menu tab with customize button - many options. I'll look over the guide for something about icons I remember that.
This would be a good thread to share tuning ideas http://srmz.net/inde...showtopic=10956

20. Open the W7_Optimize directory on your desktop. Inside you will find the file: MicrosoftFixit_KB50496.msi. Please run this application and allow it to complete. When finished a reboot request will appear, reboot the computer.

Save this folder to desktop : Quote " 1. FILES YOU WILL NEED:
Download this zip file and unzip it. http://gex.flight1.net/forumimages/W7_Optimize.zip
You will be using the files supplied in that zip package for this outline. Unzip it to the desktop.
a. Inside the W7_Optimize directory you will find: TweakPrefetch_18.104.22.168.exe install that application. It should place a shortcut on your desktop, leave that shortcut on the desktop for use later.
b. Inside the W7_Optimize directory you will find a registry directory, open that directory and you will find a file named: Optimized.reg. Double click Optimize.reg and allow it to merge into the registry.
Do not reboot!
c. Close the W7_Optimize directory and leave it on the desktop. You will be using the application TFC.exe and MicrosoftFixit_KB50496.msi later in this outline. "
Cleans the startup, temp file I believe and fixes out of memory issues.

Extract zip "win 7 optimize" to your desktop becomes directory with files above.
Maybe I don't understand your question?
Windows doesn't have this directory without the download above.
Happy to help figure this out I worked through the "Bible" over the course of months, years to understand, implement.
4 hours is intense studying! and are you ready for the test?
