I've been playing FB for a while and just learned that turning off the mirrors substantially improves fps. Are there any other settings that dramatically improve frame rates?

is it only certain planes that have mirrors? I mapped a key but havn't been able to get mirrors on any of the ones I've been flying.

Mainly USAAF and British planes - try P-47's, Hurricanes - and some others I can't remember.
I think in AEP the P-39 and the Spitfire will have mirrors too.

Turn off S3TC compression. That seems to do it.

It must vary from person to person-- I only lose about 5fps when I turn mirrors on. That's a trade-off I'm willing to make.

P.S. The Spit does have a mirror, as well as the P-38.
