Active radar freezes fs9

Recommended Posts

Looks like a great program and I am looking forward to using it.One small problem-when I click ctrl f12 to bring up active radar-I get the activeradar box-then "initializing activeradar". From that point everything freezes-and control alt delete is the only thing to get me out.I have a single computer with fs9 (and active sky) installed on my second hard disk drive e:.Thanks for any help...http://mywebpages.comcast.net/geofa/pages/Geofdog2.jpg

Hi Geof,Hmmm, that's a strange one, not been reported yet. Possibly graphics related. Have you tried turning off render to texture (if on?). Anything else special about your graphics configuration? What kind of card/drivers?Damian ClarkHiFi Simulation SoftwareDeveloper of ActiveSkyhttp://www.hifisim.comhttp://www.hifisim.com/images/as2004betateam.jpg

One other possibility, it has been reported to confict with ActiveCamera's hotkey, if you have that, try changing ActiveCamera's hotkey. I will work at making the ActiveRadar key configurable...Damian ClarkHiFi Simulation SoftwareDeveloper of ActiveSkyhttp://www.hifisim.comhttp://www.hifisim.com/images/as2004betateam.jpg

Thanks for the quick response-I just tried turning render to texture off and removing active camera-seemed to work-I'll try adding each back and see what causes the trouble!Ooopps-now have the same trouble-I'll experiment more and report back.Athlon 2100+, 512 ramti4200 geforce with 128 megs 53.03 drivershttp://mywebpages.comcast.net/geofa/pages/Geofdog2.jpg

Here is what I get. After hitting ctl f12 I get what you see on the screen-then all appears to freeze. If I then ctrl alt del-minimize the sim-then max it again (in 3d window) I get the second shot-and the gauge works-but no flight sim. If I mess with the menu at the top which appears when the mouse goes over it-then I get frozen screen with no gauge showing.http://mywebpages.comcast.net/geofa/pages/Geofdog2.jpg

Dear Damian and Geof,Active Camera 2004 uses 49 customized keyboard shortcuts (hot keys). Some of these shortcuts may be in conflict with other 3rd party add-ons. The AC2004 user can edit and assign customized hot keys through the built-in graphic interface (available in update 1.1).Kind regards,

I can confirm the freezing behaviour.Active radar loads fine but freezes at some point in every flight. I can get it to freeze by turning on the alt radar render option.ATI 9800 PROP4 3GHz512 RamRender to texture is off.Apart from that I am really please with the view out the window and the options available with AS2004 - you guys keep making this hobby hard to stay away from!Ray Keaatch.

Not only did I uninstall that software, I formatted and re-installed XP :-)I just changed from Nvidia to the 9800 Pro and was getting awful problems so I re-installed. Only software on this PC are XP, FS2004, FSUIPC, WideFS and the Active Radar. 2nd PC is running WideFS and AS2004. About an hour after I finished re-formatting and installing XP, you released AS2004 - thats how fresh the system is :-)As soon as I open the radar (or after a short time), FS2004 freezes or runs at about 1 frame per minute. If I exit the radar, FS carries on as usual. The problem is far worse when using the alternative rendering for the radar.Dell 8300, 800 FSBP4 3GHz512MbATI 9800 ProAudigy 2 sound.Ray Keattch
