Deteriorating Aircraft?

Recommended Posts

Acouple minutes ago I started a flight in my NGX, FIAD - KORD to be specific, and it's not the first time it has happened but, shortly after takeoff my sky (The Atmosphere) Started having squares in it, and my tail and engines, started turning black, along with the land and autogen, Everything was black, upon switching to the externam view, I realized my aircraft was slowly deteriorating, it was the skeleton effect, but just the cabin was off, and the chairs exposed, engines still black, however everything inside was normal, until my cockpit started freezing...Any tips? Specs found in Signature, and yes I have Highmemfix applied...

That's your computer running out of steam, struggling to dump stuff from its memory and there effectively being no room left for FSX to load in the new stuff as your flight progresses, which is somewhat of a limitation of how much RAM FS can use. The best you can do is to drop your settings or shut down other programs and try to free up some memory. Try binning stuff off your system start up list (things like MS Messenger, I-Tunes, Google Updater etc, which often set themselves up to start up when your computer does, which of course eats up RAM, you can also use things like the little freeware program 'End It All', which will kill things you tick a check box for when you run it. Opening up the Task Manager and looking on the page which shows what processes are running will reveal what things are running in the background, you can also faff around with how many CPU cores FSX is using via that Task Manager, which may also help.

If you're running a 64-bit OS, it would also help to have more than 4gb of memory installed. That way FSX gets to use all its VAS & the OS/other apps can run on the surplus without crowding it.

It isn't guaranteed to solve any issues, but as hard as we tweak fsx to squeeze as much out of it as possible, it doesn't make sense to limit it like that.

Your problem is that FSX has so much space to work with, it forgets where it put it's things :D
