TDS GTNXi Performance Improvements

The thread below includes three steps for improving TDS GTNXi performance:

Edit 04APR2022: Thanks to AirborneGeek for creating a YouTube video explaining all these performance steps in details:

Step 1:

Thanks to TDS GTNXi user and streamer Clumsy:

And with the great assessment pointed by Ryan Butterworth

We have been able to find a proper solution for customers experiencing performance degradation (FPS decrease) within MSFS and the TDS GTNXi.

As this problem occurs only on some machines and we can't correlate the exact cause, we can't have a general fix, but we can point users who experience problems to this fix.

To resolve the problem, you must add an exclusion to Windows Defender for two processes:

gtn_simulator.exe and FlightSimulator.exe

As described here:

When clicking on Add Exclusion, select Process and then type the name and the extension, as shown above or in the picture posted at the end of this link.

Step 2:

Enable a different drawing algorithm inside MSFS. With the Developer Mode active, access the Options Menu, then under the Experimental section, check the "Use NanoVG for XML gauges"

This should decrease the load on the Main Thread and hopefully provide a performance increase using the TDS GTNXi as a VC Integrated option.

Step 3:

Make sure to disable GPU Hardware Scheduling, then reboot the PC for the changes to take effect:

We want to stand by our product and assist you in getting it running correctly, so please let us know how this bug fix works. Do not worry, we will get it solved, we always do!
But I use Bitdefender not windows defender - do I just add the same exceptions there?

The exceptions would have to be added inside BitDefender, according to the BitDefender guide/manual.
For information, when I installed the TDS GTNXi one week ago, I had a fps drop.
Step 1 resolved the issue.
I'll try Step 2 later to see if I can gain some fluidity in the GTNXi display.
Step 3 was already applied on my PC.
