SB4 freezing my SIM. FSINN works perfect

Recommended Posts

SB4 freezing my SIM. FSINN works perfectly. Are there bugs in SB4 with FSX and should I just stick with FSINN. Is that what most FSX users use for VATSIM?

FSinn is a mess, its so complicated and you need 2 things running just to support FSinn... Go with SB4, ive noticed very few freezes, and when it does, i just restart SB4 because i run it outside of the sim. Instead of going up to the ALT bar and starting through the Modules/Addon tab, go to Start>Squawkbox and start SB4 through there so its in a Windows window, then, if it crashes, it wont tie up the sim.... you can just terminate SB4 and restart it...That should be a temporary fix until they finish updating it... Good Luck! :(

Unfortunately, I am going to have to disagree with you. Since I installed SB4 on two different machines both machines freeze 10 minutes into flight. I installed the latest FSINN and it works perfectly. In fact the multiplayer is better than SB3 and SB4. I would like to use SB4 but this is unacceptable.

Not aware of what OS you are on here, but if you are in Vista then I find that running Flight Simulator X as Administrator solved my problem of SB4 crashing soon after I installed it. If you don't know what I am on about, right-click Flight Simulator in your start menu or wherever you have it and choose "Run as Administrator". Hopefully this will work. If you are using XP, then I can't help sorry.
