DX10 Scenery Fixer

The product resolves the majority of the issues in the FSX “DX10 Preview mode” and has allowed many flight simmers to switch to DX10 and fly with shadows in their virtual cockpits.

Airports sceneries that use the FS9 SDK will no longer appear as grey and untextured at night. Similarly legacy aircraft built with older SDKs will no longer appear grey. This is shown in the composite picture above where the left hand side has DX10SF enabled. Aircraft shadows are both more accurate in placement and improved in quality.

Important note

Please ensure that FSX DX10 Preview mode performs satisfactorily on your PC before purchase. DX10 Scenery Fixer only addresses graphical issues – it does not boost performance.

Here is a pdf guide which describes the installation process and contains links to web resources on moving to DX10.  Read Me First

I do not sell directly to customers – instead DX10SceneryFixer is available from FastSpring a US based reseller below

    Steve. I am running FSX out of the box. Downloaded the latest version and I believe I have all the proper setting for Nvidia Inspector and DX10 fix correct. But I must be doing something wrong because when I open FSX the start screen is black where the aircraft is shown and when I open the free flight at the airport all is black except for some dark shadowy cloud effects.
    Can you point me in the right direction?

    • stevefsx says:

      That usually means that the general10 shader has failed to compile. When you run the controller do the diagnostics report any issues at all? Its probably easier to communicate via the yahoo support email address in the manual. In fsxdir\ShadersHLSL\general what are the dates listed for general10.fxh and general10.fx?

      Try in the controller going into the file->debug dialog from top menu and press apply. Then try running fsx again.

      If that doesn’t work send me your dx10.ini file from AppData\Local\DX10SceneryFixer

    • stevefsx says:

      I have located the order and resent you the details

      • Craig Thompson says:

        Thank you Steve, Could you kindly help, I have received the link and thank you for your hasty resolve however when I install it and open up DX10 front screen on your fixer my FSX path is blank and the button “Change” is shaded out and it wont let me type a path. have you come across this?

  11. Yuri Brown says:

    Hi Steve, purchased the fixer, and also no e-mail. I think it’s getting blocked en-route for some reason. Can you try re-sending it to me again please.

  12. Daniel Gamble says:

    Hi, I have Orbx and the street lights don’t get fixed completly with your DX10 Scenery Fixer. Exclude ORBX Street Lights is enabled. Can you help me?



    • stevefsx says:

      Where don’t they get fixed and can you describe in what way are they not fixed? When is the problem day or night and what do they look like or do that is wrong

      What orbx products do you have?

      It may be easier to email a picture to the yahoo support email address.

  14. Hello, i want to update to the latest version, how can i do it?, where do i need to send my information?, there is no “update” button in the program itself.

    • stevefsx says:

      All the information you need is in the fulfillment email which says

      This link is valid for 21 days only so please download and back up.
      If an new version is released then the same download link can be used to download the update – the link will be valid for a further 21 days after the new version is released.

      The update process itself is described in the manual, simply leave everything as it is, download the new installer using your download url, run the installer which will update the fixer and finally run the controller and press the button to update the libraries.

    • stevefsx says:

      I have added an Updates Page to this web site linked from the top menu to assist with finding this information

  25. paul grubich says:

    I bought this a couple years ago and want to try it again but cannot remember where I purchased it. What vendors do you use?

  26. I wanted to reinstall the DX10 fixer and cloud shadows add-ons, but have lost the installation files, is it possible to get a new link for them?

  27. Jason Cardeira says:

    i bought the fixer, a few months ago, where do i must go to get the update ?

    • stevefsx says:

      I can see you downloaded it so I assume that you worked it out. Shout if you need any help.

      • Jason Cardeira says:

        yup, i thought i bought it from FSstore, but it was here by fastspring. i checked my email, i i have everything there. Thanks anyway Steve

    • Andreas Laible says:

      hello steve can you reset my download link i hafe the version 3.2 and i have the fixer buy in the simmarket store.i would to update to the 3.3 version. thank you very mutch. and greeze andy

  28. Victor Green says:

    Hello Steve,
    I installed my REX4 Texture direct after installing the fixer. Do I need to reinstall the library to check REX in the addon box since it was not checked on initial installation?
    Thanks, Vic G.

    • stevefsx says:

      No need.

      In fact it’s practically impossible to get back to that dialog!

      All the fixer does if you tell it you have Rex is to tell you to select the dx10 options in Rex and avoid 32 bit water.

      Similarly the other product options just set some fixer settings that are anyway documented in the manual and can be set after the install.

      It’s a first time only screen to help people who haven’t yet read the manual!

  29. Bruce says:

    Thanks for your response Steve. Have now bought and installed the programme and it is working well. Many thanks for developing such a welcome addition to MSX.

    Kind regards

  30. Bruce says:

    Hi Steve,
    Is your DX10 Scenery Fixer the same product as your previously named 3D Shader V3.11 or is it an upgrade with enhanced capability?


    • stevefsx says:

      It is a big upgrade. It provides support for legacy scenery and aircraft (written with earlier fs sdks) improved quality vc shadows with more accurate placement, fixes almost all transparency issues etc etc.

      It also has an additional addon that provides cloud shadows.
