Tweak your scenery settings to maximize FPS and find that "sweet spot" or compromise between speed and quality.
Quickly Toggle Between 8 Different 'Scenery Modes'
With TweakFPS you avoid the need for moving sliders and settings back and forth for different types of flying, IFR, VFR or for special scenery such as MegaScenery. You also cut out the need to continually edit the FS9.Cfg manually, a tedious task at the best of times. After applying the mode TweakFPS will launch FS2004 with your preferred flight (assigned via the 'Settings' page).
Set Up Custom Modes
TweakFPS gives you the ability to tweak the default predefined modes. If you do not fancy the 'hard-coded' program defaults then you can customize the mode to your liking. TweakFPS will save your customized mode and will load that when you press the 'Apply' button.
The Scenery Mode names and descriptions can also be changed (except the protected "Original FS9.Cfg" Mode) by right-clicking on them. If for any reason the custom config did not work out or you want to revert to the program default you can do so by clicking the 'Restore' button.

Each Variable has a Tooltip with Range Information
Each key in the FS9.Cfg file has a format and range that is required by FS2004. When setting up a custom mode double-clicking on the variable brings up the small "Edit Value" window. Hovering your mouse over the input box will give you a tooltip with information on the range of the variable (eg. 'TrafficDensity Range = 1-100').
FS9.Cfg Viewer/Manual Editor
For those who like the power of editing the FS9.Cfg file directly TweakFPS provides a simple integrated text editor that you can use to make any other changes.
