Recommended Posts

First of all, I want to thank the PMDG team for this excellent product. I haven't had much time yet to learn this bird but the first impression has been excellent.However, I have noticed two problem: After I end a flight with the plane (going back to the "Free Flight" window) and then exiting out of FSX, it crashes and I get the following:image20090905002708741.jpgNot that big of a deal but I thought I still should report this.-------FIXED------Second problem: When switching views from External to Internal, I lose the engine sound till I press ESC twice or open a menu within FSX. ----- FIXEDSpecs:Running FSX in Window ModeQ6600 StockGeForce 8600GT 256MBWindows XP SP3 32bit4 GB of RAM @ 800MHzSound Blaster AudigyPS. Accept my apologies if I don't reply back till tomorrow. It's 12:45AM Local time here in Los Angeles.Thanks again and best regards,

Hi Farshid,The sounds going missing while changing views is a known FSX issue - you can quickly reset the sounds after changing views by pressing "Q" twice.Thanks,Armen

Thanks Armen for the quick reply. I just fired up the aircraft again and noticed it only happens once during the flight. After that I can change views all I want and everything is normal. So that's fixed...everything is cool. Thanks!

Hello,Same problem here. FSX always crasches with out of memory after a J41 flight except when I directly exit within the simulator with ALT F4.Matyas Majzik

Farshid / Matyas-Thank you for your feedback on the CTD-On-Exit.We are trying to find a reproducible case in-house in order to find the cause of this- but thus far we haven't succeeded.Can you help me out with a bit more data?-> Does this happen on ALL occasions when exiting FSX after using the J41?-> Is this happening ONLY when you exit FSX from the FREE FLIGHT menu?-> If you exit from within the sim- does the CTD happen?-> In sim, have you initialized the FMS when this happens?-> Does it happen if you have not initialized the FMS?-> Any specific location and/or flight plan?Thanks, guys- this particular CTD is more an annoyance than anything else- but we don't like loose ends- it gives the appearance of untidiness...

Just to help out with my experience of this problem,a) Yes, it happens after exiting FSX when I have used the J-41 even if I have changed plane after I have used it.b)Yes this only happens when exiting free flightc)No, if I exit the sim from within (ie, Alt-C) it does not happen.d)No, it makes no difference, I dont usually get that far because I have engine start issues.e)Yes, see abovef)No, any situation or airport Hope this helpsRegardsDan.

Hi,I haven't experienced any program failure with the J41. But I normally exits FSX from within a flight. Not from the Free flight screen. So I made a test.

-> Does this happen on ALL occasions when exiting FSX after using the J41?
No.
-> Is this happening ONLY when you exit FSX from the FREE FLIGHT menu?
Yes. And this is when I exit a flight and returns to the free flight menu with the J41 as the selected aircraft.
-> If you exit from within the sim- does the CTD happen?
No.
-> In sim, have you initialized the FMS when this happens?
No.
-> Does it happen if you have not initialized the FMS?
No.
-> Any specific location and/or flight plan?
No.Hope this helps to track down the cause.Thanks for a very, very special aircraft :(

My apologies, Robert for not responding earlier. I was too busy flying (or should I say learning to fly?) you know what ;)My findings are basically the same to that of Dan:-> If the J41 is just loaded in the "Free Flight" but not actually flown, then the CTD does NOT occur. On all other occasions the exit resulted in CTD-> The CTD occurs regardless of if I am in the "Free Flight" window or some other.-> The CTD does not occur if I exit from within the sim-> Regardless of the FMS being initialized or not, the CTD does occur on exiting FSX-> I have tried it in several locations and the CTD still does happen
