Still, this minimum fps continued to be only 10 – 15 percent better better than what I got with the my 2D card, and continued to be a disappointment. I eventually left FS98 and went up to the Diamond site to see if they were perhaps offering a new driver for Stealth II, though the product had apparently come out after FS98 had and the box stated that it was optimized for DirectX 3D. Finally I loaded some of my own scenery and tried it out extensively. I headed out past the Verazzano Narrows Bridge, around Coney Island and toward Kennedy International, almost always in fps in the 14 to 16 range.

Furthermore, when looking back at the buildings a kilometer or more in the distance, the normal flickering and running of lines which is a reasonably acceptable visual by-product of current computer graphics displays seemed to be severely increased, to the point where entire buildings appeared at times to bend and waver and even break up.

At this airport there is a Tim Dicken’s created macro of a water tower visible from just about every takeoff and landing path. It was while flying along the East River, approaching Riker’s Island with several of the East River bridges in the mid- and background, that I experienced the lowest fps I encountered in the testing – 6. Steakth could not find a driver that seemed more recent than the product itself.

Diamond Multimedia Systems, Inc. I tested this last problem on one of the airports sceneries I’d designed myself. Using skew and ascending into and above the clouds, I saw the much fluffier cloud textures instead of the 2D undifferentiated blocks. I’m not a fan of the blurred ground texture technique you get in 3D, but the result was more pleasing to the eye with the Stealth card, as was the added crispness and detail the various default buildings and other structures revealed.

But with the Stealth II I saw not only even more wavering to the pattern, but to the tower outlines themselves, until at times the tower appeared to lose much of its shape and identity. Easy Driver Pro performs a complete scan of your all of the devices in or attached to your computer. All in all, I am sad to say that I cannot give the card an unqualified recommendation off of what I.

Unfortunately, however, it was at this time that a rather annoying feature showed up mulitmedia the ground tile textures were severely banded now, fairly accurate in the near distance, then beyond a rather sharp dividing border a band of much blander texture, and finally furthest out beyond another severe dividing line, flat gray to the horizon.

I took off and turned south, lining myself up with the East River.

And visually I was totally unsatisfied – considerable breakup, shimmering, wavering, all worse, actually, than with my 2D card. It checks everything such as sound card, graphic card, monitor, mouse, printer, etc.

I finally went to the Las Vegas photo-realistic scenery, and here got my first hint of the real potential of a good 3D card as now the wavering and object breakup were distinctly improved, though again fps in particularly dense views were still no more than 25 percent over what I got with the 2D card.


These scenery loading pauses continued at odd, 1 to 2 minute intervals during my tour of the downtown Manhattan area, though they cleared up as soon as I moved beyond Manhattan.

To give the Stealth II card its due, after a few hours spent flying ik the Diamonc area, frequently back into the densest downtown buildings and making repeated touch and gos at both Meigs and O’Hare, I can report that there was never the hint of one of those pauses many 3D card users have reported.

This macro is quite realistic, patterned with red and white checkers to give it a real-life appearance. This driver available for the following operating systems: I spent another hour or two flying in other denser scenery areas like Miami, Los Multtimedia and San Francisco, with approximately the same result as at Chicago, including no further pauses.

I headed out past the Verazzano Narrows Bridge, around Coney Island and toward Kennedy International, almost always in fps in the 14 to 16 range. But I later learned on Flightsim’s FS98 forum that the company has apparently stated that the release of a new driver is “imminent,” so perhaps they themselves recognize some of the problems the Stealth II has with FS98 in particular.

With my 2D card the individual checkers in the pattern do tend to flicker and waver a bit at distances starting at a kilometer or so, while the tower’s outlines themselves remain quite firm. Once the card was loaded a fairly straightforward operation using the instruction card that came with the unitI went into FS98 steqlth performed the standard activation in the Hardware Acceleration window – Select 3D card, choose X x 16 resolution on my 15″ monitor, click the enable hardware button on and choose Filter texturemapping and Mip mapping.
