Just a note for all you X-Plane 9 junkies ... apparently the 10.5.3 update has given a decent boost to frame rates for some systems running the 10.5.3 update. This information (along with some system specs) found over on the X-Plane Freeware forums.

It does not. The problem was obviously not with OpenGL or drivers, so how could it?

Preposterous. I would say I have hit the nail on the head.

I can't comment on the improvement from 10.5.2 to 10.5.3. I just got X-Plane 9. But I can say this: X-Plane 9 is an awesome game. I can run it at 1920 x 1200 with pixel shaders on and most other stuff on (that I care about anyway). I have aniso at 4X and AA also at 4X and it looks great. Terrific game IMHO.
