MyTrafficX 5.4C - ATI - traffic levels

Recommended Posts

I posted the following on the ATI discussion thread but thought I would also post it as a new thread relative to MyTrafficX. I do NOT have all the answers since I am still testing but I definitely am getting ntdll.dll crashes when using MyTrafficX 5.4c. I do not have the crash when I disable/remove all MyTraffic AI and restore all default AI.

 

http://forum.avsim.net/topic/422802-serious-issue-with-ati-and-steves-dx10-fix-tears-and-spikes-everywhere/page-9#entry2835351

 

OK, I have been back and forth with a lot of the tweaks and I still wasn't having total success. I have been getting the infamous ntdll.dll crash. I turned down the airline traffic to zero and it went away. I tried again at 20 and it came back. I removed the MyTrafficX 5.4C traffic and reinstalled the default AI traffic. I now have traffic at 100% airline and 25% GA. I am running ATI driver 12.8 (display driver 8.982.0 7/27/2012). I am going to reintroduce my AI traffic from MyTraffic and see what happens.

 

I thought I would post these results for information purposes, just in case there is a link here with the general ATI problems we have been having.

 

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Bob,

I've had a few of these as well. It has been reported to Burkhard at http://forum.simflight.com/topic/75131-54c-ctd-problem-a-solution/?hl=ntdll   Message 14 has a patch.

 

Before I report my issue, I'm still playing around with it. There is a patch you might want to try. It's noted in the forum I just attached. I tried it and haven't had any issues "yet". If you do use it, follow the instructions closly. My sliders on airlines is at 30% right now. I'll increase it slowly and see if it gets nasty. If it still does it, I'll report it.

 

Edit: I think you can also go back to the 2012 schedules and it doesn't happen.

Danny,

Thank you for those suggestions. I will give them a try and see what happens.

THANKS!!!

 

I have a phobia when someone tells me to "delete" something so I backed up the old files first. I think there were a total of six files.

Hope it works out for you.

I'm the one that started the linked thread; as was suggested, I believe the 2013 schedules are the problem. Apparently not everyone can replicate the crashes but it seemed to be more prevalent in the US southwest. The patch didn't help me, but I've had no crashes when I use 2012 schedules, whereas it's almost every time I fly (especially out of KPHX) with the 2013 schedules.

I haven't tried the 2012 schedules but I will if I continue to get the crashes. I'm easing it up slowly. I get mine out of KDFW. I may take a spin around KPHX. I did a straight up install of 54c so no upgrade was involved. If I get another one, I'll go ahead and report it.

 

Thanks for the info. The patch may not help me either.

I have just tried the 2012 schedules and I got the dreaded ntdll.dll crashes AGAIN....... :rolleyes:

 

Maybe I just have to be satisfied with using the default AI!!  :(

 

Thanks for your suggestions, it was worth a try..................

 

Regards,

 Bob

You should tell Burkhard about it in the forum where the patches were. I flew Brian's KPHX and KDFW at 30% and 40% last night. No errors so far. Are you testing at KRND?

I was testing at KDVT. I am going to post this AM in the forum where the patches are but I am going to do one more test this morning confirming the delete and patches are in. Thanks Danny, for this insight. I wasn't sure where Lavon is but it is a BIG town!! :lol:  Thanks again.

 

I just did a retest after confirming the delete and patch. Using a 2012 schedule at KDVT and I got the ntdll.dll crash at the end of loading aircraft.

Wow!   I've been getting the dreaded "ntdll.dll" crashes for some time now and never thought of MTX5.4c as being the culprit.

 

I'm definitely heading over to the forums and checking out that patch. 

 

Thanks for the heads-up, guys!

I was having the ntdll.dll crash problem with 5.4c also. I reviewed the comments on this at the MytrafficX forums a few weeks ago and there did not seem to be a solution, so I uninstalled MyTraffic completely and then reinstalled it only with the patches to get me back to 5.4b. Runs fine now, no crashes.

Thanks Ted. I don't have 4.5b. I came in after the release of 4.5c. I've uninstalled 4.5c several times. Re-installed with 4.5c and put the patch in. Still have issues with it. I'll try the 2012 schedules.

I should add, that I was getting these crashes flying around the Los Angeles area. I read on the Mytraffic forums that the crashes seem to occur in the US southwest. I didn't try flying anywhere else before reverting back to 5.4b.

The 2012 Schedules seem to work for me.. So far.. I was about ready to ask Burkhard for 4.5b so I could at least fly a little. But so far, so good on the 2012 schedules.

Danny, glad to hear the 2012 schedules are working for you. I am going to do more testing tonight but at 40 I get the ntdll.dll crashes. I am now at 30 and flights during today have been OK. I will see what happens with a couple of flights tonight. This is really a perplexing problem. I may just go back and reinstall 5.4a, 5.4b and then 5.4c and test along the way?

 

Have fun!!!

Hi Bob. Yeah, Lavon is a really big place for sure.  :lol:  But even way out here, Dallas and surrounding areas are slowly creeping their way out here.

 

If I had a, b and c, I would reinstall and upgrade and once I got to c, go immediately to 2012 schedules and not even mess with the 2013 stuff.

Or as Ted has done, stay on b until they can find out what's wrong.

 

If I receive another error on 2012, I'll ask 4.5b.

Bob, do me a favor and look in the directory where your fsx.cfg lives and tell me if you see a file fsx.cfg.txt . I've been seeing this since I installed 5.4c. It is a fresh file every time FSX is started. I don't see the file with the 2012 schedules.

 

If you do, I'll bring it up in the forum to Burkhard.

Danny, I do have the file and quick glance looks like it is a copy of my fsx.cfg . I am running the 2012 schedules............

 

Any idea what the purpose of that file may be? Based on the time stamp it looks, as you suggested, that it is created each time FSX is started.

I'm not seeing it on 2012. I deleted mine. If you're on 2012, move it out of the directory and see if it comes back. Strange. I'm going to go ahead and ask him about it.

I cut it out and moved it to a temporary folder. When I started FSX and checked it was not there. I started a flight and checked it again, not there. I ended FSX and checked again, not there!

 

Interesting..it was created on ‎Saturday, ‎March ‎16, ‎2013, ‏‎12:56:27 PM and modified on ‎Yesterday, ‎October ‎26, ‎2013, ‏‎11:01:20 AM, which is when I probably 2013 schedules running.

Thanks Bob. I pretty much guessed it wouldn't do it on the 2012 schedules on your system either .I placed the questions about this on his forum. You can chime in on it too if you wish. I'll bet it's some coding accidentally left in. It shouldn't be modifying the original fsx.cfg but once if I am not mistaken. Not every time FSX starts. And that would only be on install. We shall see. :huh:

I just completed a 2 hour flight with aircraft slider set to 35, I tried 40 but it caused a CTD. The recent flight at 35 went OK, I landed parked at the gate and ended FSX. AFTER ending FSX I got the CTD. I have also posted this information on the MyTraffic forum. Several other people are experience same situation but in most cases it is with 2013 schedule, mine is with 2012 schedules also.

ALL: I have uninstalled 5.4C, reinstalled 5.4B, rebuilt the MyTraffic scenery in FSX, reset my FSX aircraft slider from 40 to 50..............

 

I flew the same slight I have flown the last 6 times when I got CTD's and this time NO CTD's successful flight except they assigned me a gate which already had an aircrafticon_confused.gif

Sounds like if you want to fly uninterrupted, you should hang around on 5.4b until they figure this out.  :biggrin:
