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

    Hi steve,

    I’m a simmer from South Korea!
    With your DX10 fixer, My sim just improve it’s ‘Awesomeness’. Thank you so much! 😉

    Today I flew with my PMDG 737NGX aircraft in the ‘early dusk time’. However, when I turn the landing lights ON, the reflection on the fuselage just get White! (I mean that the reflection was much more bright than I usually saw in DX9 mode.)

    Is this a limitation of your fixer? Or Did I something wrong with my DX10 fixer setting?

    Any ideas?

    Thank you very much in advance and sorry for bad English 🙂

    Hello there,

    I am currently writing for some clarification on the DX10 Fixer found within the avsim library. I have downloaded this and applied its features. The file is called shader_release_v3.2.3.

    Please, how is this any different to the above fixer by Steve himself? If I purchased this and applied it to my simulation experience, what would the repercussions be with shader_release_v3.2.3 installed?

    Please let me know. Otherwise, I will not risk purchasing something I am unable to use.

      The fixer understands the shader patches and will replace them during the install. How is it different? The shader patches were written in 2012 and fixed a small number of annoying issues with DX10 preview such as flashing runways. The fixer fixes a lot more! In particular it fixes all the aircraft and scenery that appears white and untextured and it also improves VC shadow quality. It provides additional fixes for lights and effects and improves fog to make it better than the DX9 implementation.

        Thank you very much for the response.

        As you have now cleared my doubts I will go ahead and purchase your fixer. Please do not ever pull it away from the market again. Some things are simply not replaceable.

        Take care!

    Bonjour, j’aimerais savoir est-ce que direct X 10 scenery fixer corrige les problèmes de floutage et les saccades.

    Merci de votre réponse d’avance.

  8. Do i have to make a seperate purchase if I already purchased it in the past?

    • stevefsx says:

      If you purchased from fastspring just use your download link. If you purchased from the flight sim store you must wait for them to take the update ( but worryingly they seem unresponsive at the moment).
      However if you have purchased or purchase the cloud shadows addon then that will update the fixer to the latest version as well as giving you shadows underneath clouds.

      • Hi Steve I just purchased the Cloud Shadows today in the hope it would update my DX10 Fixer as commented above – all it did was tell me my version of DX10 fixer was out of date and it closed telling me I would have to uninstall it and reinstall a new version. I got it from flightsimstore so not sure what to do now as the above did not work. Many thanks for the help.

      • stevefsx says:

        Sorry, if you are getting that error then it should mean that you don’t have the last version available from the flight sim store installed (3.4).
        Cloud Shadows will patch that FSS 3.4 version to 3.5 but not earlier versions as there are too many. Can you download 3.4 from your account at the Flight Sim Store and update the fixer to that version. Then uninstall cloud shadows and reinstall and it should work as described. If you have any issues then best email me at the stevefsx yahoo email address from the manual.

      • Steve – FYI The flightsimstore is back online after being down for a long time – Some of your customer may want to head on over their to download the 3.4 version as I see many were having the same issue as myself not being able to do the update. It looks like it just came back online but they are having a liquidation sale so not sure how long the site would be up. I am downloading it now and will reply to your email shortly. Many thanks for the quick reply mate. Cheers for now.

    hello can i get the latest update from dx10 fixer

  12. DaveP says:

    Hi Steve,
    You mentioned a bundle package on the shadows page that would be cheaper if you don’t have the fixer already. I can only see links to the shadows and fixer for purchase. How do you purchase the bundle and how much cheaper is it?
