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 FSX.CFG manually, a tedious task at the best of times. After applying the mode TweakFPS will launch FSX 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 FSX.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.
Apply Advanced FSX.CFG Parameters
TweakFPS allows you to manage an unlimited number of custom or "advanced" FSX.CFG parameters. This may include some of the undocumented parameters that are recommended by the MS Aces Team or by other knowledgeable folks in FS forums and blogs. It is so flexible you can in fact use it for any parameter, no matter what part of the FSX.CFG file it is located in! You have the option to include/exclude them when you press the 'Apply' button.

Each Variable has a Tooltip with Range Information

Hovering your mouse over the input box will give you a tooltip with information on the range of the variable (eg. 'GADensity Range = 1-100').
