CTD possibly relating to Dot Net Framework

Recommended Posts

The situation was Takeoff from EGLL, which included VFR London, UK2000 EGLL and 100% AI (95% of the airlines installed that EGLL operates, WOAI)There was terrible stuttering at times, even freezing for an entire second when panning around the default 747 VC.Anyway autopilot was on (enroute to KSEA) and i left it flying to watch the football. Upon returning upstairs, i was greeted with 'FSX encounted a problem and has to close' followed by a .Net framework error (version 3.5)I had started FSX via REX.I have since uninstalled VFR london, reduced airport CAR traffic and reduced my resolution to 16bit colour, and EGLL is nice and smooth.Is this just a case of too much for my PC to handle? Specs in signature.


My system which is due for delivery on the 27th October 2011

 

Intel i5 2500k 4.5ghz

Asus GeForce GTX560ti 1024mb GDDR5

Gigabyte Z68AP-D3

Corsair Vengeance Blue 8gb 1600mhz

Seagate Baracuda 500GB 6GB/s 16mb Cache

Cooler Master Elite case

Cooler Master hyper 212 CPU fan

G7 780w PSU - I know i need to upgrade this!

32" BEKO HD LCD screen

 

FSX Acceleration + UTX, GEX, REX, GenX VFR UK, all UK2000 airports, Mogwaisoft Shade, many Aerosoft Major Airports

 

And...

 

PMDG's 744X Queen of the skies.

 

Total outlay about £1500. Next i intend on getting a good Yoke and peddles.

Please post the log of your FSX CTD.Just to be sure, enable Windows update so your MSVC and .NET runtimes are up to date (then defrag your HDD).Cheers,- jahman.

VFR London is a known fps/memory hog even for the best of systems. I would not reduce your resolution as it will destroy your enjoyment. I think you have found the solution to your problem - reduce your FSX settings. You can still run VFR London. Just customize your settings in FSX by reducing many of the sliders and AI traffic and save it at the start up screen as 'VFR London'. Then, when you fly that area, you can load those special settings. Just save the settings you like first and name it My Favorite or Default, then, go and customize your settings and then save the VFR London. BTW, your system (and mine) are not capable of running FSX with most of the sliders maxed out. Sure, you can do it for a while but eventually it will crash. You'll just have to tweak it to get the best eye-candy to enjoy.Best regards,Jim

My main objectives now to get out of FSX rests mainly in the ORBX areas (PNW, CRM, NRM, AUS) simply because they give eyecandy like no other. I can get super smoothness with V high settings in those areas. I only flew out of Heathrow to Seattle so that i was in the PNW region. I live in the UK so id rather fly from there to the USA as opposed to just starting a flight from Seattle. Then i'll take a small prop and head in to the many great areas of NW America.

Great choices! I just looked closer at the specs of your computer in your signature and you are overclocking your CPU a little high. A high clock is not required for FSX (maybe for Microsoft Flight). It's only going to increase your chances for overheating and other anomalies. I would suggest nothing higher than 4 GHz. I had mine overclocked to 4.8GHz for a long time but had some CTD's so lowered it to 4.4GHz. I have not seen a CTD since and FSX still runs great.Best regards,Jim

Will lower it a bit before next boot up (currently in a 182 out of Boise to explore a little :) )
