Full Reinstall

Recommended Posts

Afternoon,

 

After experiencing some OOM issues amongst other things, do you feel there would be an advantage of doing a full re-install of FSX and changing the directory from program files x86 to its own directory? Would this really provide a good benefit?

I'm always the hesitant one to go with reinstalls to fix issues.  I find that you learn a lot more trying to troubleshoot things and fix them in the process.  Sure, a clean slate might fix things, but then you don't know which of the thousand things that changed in the wipe actually fixed the issue.  It's up to you, but I'd honestly pick around with the fixes in the intro manual (you may or may not have said you've done this - all the forum posts are blending together for me by now), and try to dial back some of the sliders.  I think you mentioned having FTX Global in one of your other threads.  That would definitely rank on my list as a heavy hitter, especially on certain rigs.

 

There are many settings in the sim that you can dial back with little to no real visual degradation, particularly in the scenery category.

I have done this before and sometimes it pays to put 1 scenery  or addon in at a time and run it for a time to try and eliminate what the cause could be.

 

The only place i get OOM's is flying in to djerba X

 

But if i deselect the airports im not going to use on my flight in the fsx scenery lib i don't get it

Landing at London Heathrow does it for me! Have dialled back some of the scenery settings so will be trying a test today to see if it fixed it... Probably to do with the orbx UK scenery's version of London that's doing it for me.
