No flights, all CTDs

Recommended Posts

Hi all,This is just for the record. System specs are at the bottom of this note. I've tried more than two dozen flights but *all* have frozen and CTD'd or just CTD'd. All but 3 of the flights followed the tutorial. Some CTDs were while on the ground, some during the takeoff roll, most in the air. All setup instructions from the Introduction that can be implemented have been implemented. As the PMDG MD-11, 747X, & J41 all work fine, I'm going to assume there is a PEBKAC and put the 737NGX aside for a while and watch this forum for a while. (Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair == PEBKC). Dan "lensman" Davison SysSpecs: Asus P6T MB, 6 GB Crucial CL9 RAM, Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5, Antec 900 case, XFX 850W PS, 2x 1TB WD Caviar Green, 2X ODD, 60GB SSD (not used, for future W7 install), Win XP Pro SP3+ patches, FSX+Acceleration, licensed FSUIPC, FSDreamTeam KJFK, Catalyst 11.6 drivers, /3GB switch. FSX.CFG optimized by Bojtes' web site, HIGHMEMFIX=1, Affinitymask=14. Max GDDR5 memory used 890 MB, max CPU: i7-920@2.66, hyperthreading and speedstep on, otherwise all bios at default settings Usual CPU speed 2.88

Hey Alex, which .dll is causing your CTDs? I had a g3d.dll one last night when I was on approach into Coffs Harbour with Orbx scenery.

Isn´t the g3d.dll CTD a Orbx thing? I had a similar crash, as I flew the NGX over PNW.

Funny, I just descended into Portland over ORBX PNW this evening and got the "Fatal Error" CTD. Loaded it back up at Portland for a quick loop around the pattern and the same thing happened. Been flying all around Southern California this week with GEX, REX, and some MegaScenery stuff and no problems...hmmm... Sit it out, I'm sure PMDG will figure this one out soon...

g3d.dll CTD are pretty common for PNW scenery, I can guarantee that with such complex aircraft like NGX, it'll only be worse. I get these CTD's in the area in the default birds. GPU overload for sure.

I'm having simmilar issues, and this on a complete fresh FSX install. How do I acces the Error log something in Windows 7, to find out what caused this?
