TileProxy .cfg changes:

In order to maximize performance the TileProxy installer offers you the option of making minor changes to your FSX.cfg and FS9.cfg files. These changes are listed below, and many are simply parameters that can be adjusted in the FSX display settings. Accepting these changes at the install is recommended for maximizing TileProxy performance. Should you experience problems with the program or decide not to fly with TileProxy activated, the uninstaller restores your .cfg files to their original state. The default locations for both your active and backed up files are:

FSX and FS9 .cfg locations:

FSX: C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\
FS9: C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data\Microsoft\FS9\

The backed up files are named:

FSX: fsx.cfg.TileProxy.BAK
FS9: fs9.cfg.TileProxy.BAK

The following information is from the TileProxy Manual and references the changes that are made:

Changes to your FSX.cfg

For a good flying experience and graphics quality "out of the box", the program's installer manipulates the following parameters in your FSX.cfg. You can easily change some of these with the FSX user interface, others have to be manually edited in the configuration file if you are not satisfied with these settings.

If you do not want these changes to be made, uncheck the corresponding checkbox in the installer that says "Modify Simulator config for performance".

Note that the MipBias setting may lead to shimmering in the distance, which you can counter
by selecting "Negative LOD Bias = Clamp" in the nVidia Control Panel in the advanced
section. I am not sure if this also affects ATI users.

 

Changes to your FS9.cfg
