Constant freezing in flight with 777

Recommended Posts

I get this freezing that PMDG mentioned in the release notes.txt. I have no problem at ground but in the air my FSX freezes for ~5 seconds 1-2 times per minute and it happens constantly. I have no idea what is causing this but obviously I'm not able to fly with this thing. In release notes they mentioned freezing for 30 seconds but mine lasts only around 5 seconds at a time. :(

I have this problem in-flight but I also have a problem that only occurs on final approach when FSX freezes and cannot be recovered.

is your VA ACARS system saving your aircraft position for resuming flights? I know that DVA does that and had to disable it.

It seems to be working now. Looks like that I had not deleted the FSUIPC.ini. I thought I had but apparently I had not. I'll keep looking.

I have the same problem also. I have shut things down one by one including FScom, REX, and no ACARS running. Its a consistent pause 1-2 sec then it just keeps happening. Frame rates are good syst good have FSX tweaked according to the manual.

I don't have these short pauses so far but I have had an unrecoverable freeze that I haven't had in a very very long time.  In fact, last time I got this was on my old system.

 

Hope to see a fix soon to any issues.

I installed the latest Nvidia drivers and removed the FSUIPC.ini and configured it again and I haven't had a single freeze since that. I bet on the FSUIPC, though I can't confirm or deny a driver issue. I also just installed the enbseries mod back to my FSX and have no issues with that.

i have the same issue only with 777, stutters every 5 secs, done all the recommended in the docs and above but made no difference.

What kind of stutters? Do you mean like when the fps is changing rapidly and it creates stutter? Clearly the removal of fsuipc.ini file solved my issue with freezing but then again, I didn't have any stutter. Smooth as hell.

Sorry perhaps my use of stutters is not the most accurate, everything freezes every 5 secs for around 1 sec.  Strange thing is it only happens with the 777, i fired up the ngx and smooth as silk.  I have seen a few posts now with others reporting sim issues, what's other people option here?  Prob with the 777 and its need a fix or do we need to tweak our systems more to be able to run the 777?

You didn't mention if you tried deleting the ini file. It can be found at FSX\Modules folder.

yes sorry i have tried all tips in the intro doc but nothing seems to help.  Might have to log a support ticket.

This happens in all pmdg aircraft. I'm using windows 7, ASN, ACARS v3, and VPilot. Any pmdg aircraft, it freezes and I have to shutdown fsx and reload it. Intermittently I'm getting a sim connect error, I think I have fixed that, but I'm still getting the freezing. ACARS and FSUIPC are not saving the flights (tried that already).

Same problem here after updating to Sp1b.

 

Especially on 777-200. just after takoff on climb, FSX freezes. Sound still on, but screen freezes and i have completely shut down computer with ctrl-alt-del.

 

I am using also Active Sky Next Weather engine

 

This freezing problem happend only since update to Sp1b.......

 

Any hint? Solutions?

thank you in advance

May I ask something that seems totally unrelated?

 

What version of the Ops Center do you have?

An old one or the latest version?

that doesn't say much. Most freezes i've seen over the years were based on unstable overclocking.

 

There is always a stress situation when a freeze occurs first.

 

I wouldn't start FSX before my system can't withstand a prime95 custom run with 960k FFT (min/max) over at least 12h

 

todays CPUs are easy to OC but hard to get really stable. So if you are overclocking i'd investigate on that.

I've had the long freezes as well with the 777 and NGX. Mine tend to last a couple seconds to 15 minutes. I won't force shut down because I know it will come back. After setting affinity mask as mentioned in another post I still have the issue. Last night EGLL-KLAX was 11 hours and had 6 9 minutes freezes.

Hi again folks....

 

I believe my problem is ASN (Active Sky Next) Weather Engine related.

I switched back to REX Weather Engine and for the moment no freezes at all.....

I keep an eye on it and do further tests...

There is an SP1 on the beta testing for ASN....I wait till official version comes out and try again ASN...

You should go for the update even it is beta to proof you're right with your suspicion. (btw i've never seen any weather engine freezing the sim)

 

Before this patch there was a change to crash ASN due to specific setup in options menu. This is gone with the beta patch.

But even this issues (apphang) did never affect the sim (FSX) itself (at least on my sim, but i use the networked setup on a second pc i just had to start asn again)  

 

long story short, this beta is worth trying, you can still go back to rex if it doesn't satisfy you.
