Hi guys, after like 1.5 year out of DCS I got excited with recent modules (F/A 18, persian map and the F14 comming) to get back into it.
So, I have installed it, set up all my 'normal' settings.
I feel my graphics really bad, I really tried everything possible here, low/high presets, custom changes to files and etc, I never get graphics like I had 1.5 year ago and like those videos online.
My rig is: Gigabyte G1 gaming GTX970, Intel I7 5820K, 16GB Ram, SSD. I really have no idea what more I can do to get decent graphics instead of those 'strange' graphics im getting, not sure it that 'high' preset graphis are real DCS high graphics. If it was running with real 'high' graphics for example at 1FPS I knew I should upgrade my rig.
So, the first part of this post is about the SSAO, Im not sure if it is broken and was removed (I did search to know about this but found nothing), I know its not in the settings area, just at config file.
The problem Im getting is when SSAO is active no matter if Im running 'high' settings or low settings the FPS drops hard when I zoom-in while in the cockpit (F1 camera), I didnt noticied before (noticied while recording the video), seems if I move the camera up (moving view outside the panel/gauges) the FPS increases a little.
So, Im not sure if it have some bug/problem there, I want to run with SSAO because it looks better but FPS dropping to less than 10 must be some bug/problem.
Please check the video, sorry for the bad editing, bad english and ignore the editor app watermark.

The second part of this post is related to the mirage. I attached the images you can see some shadow at the cockpit glass, also some video (
) which I asked the Spudknocker if he uses any MOD or the default DCS, he said he does not use any MOD .
Here with the default DCS, I dont get the mirage cockpit with these shadows but if I use these MODs () I get these shadows.
I dont get shadows in the cockpit like those below:
