Any fix to Enbseries making FSX CTD?

Recommended Posts

Dunno you guys, but my FSX+ENB almost always crash when handling menus and popus inside the sim.

Wonder if there is a fix for that since ENB is awesome and can't really skip it.

 

Thank you.

You can try copying "d3dx9_26.dll", "d3dx9_40.dll" and "d3dx9_43.dll" from SysWOW64 and put them into your FSX root directory. It seemed to have cured my problems with enb crashing but YMMV.

Try deleting the version you are using (all files) and replace it from one of these:-

The third one is nice. There are many versions around, some good, some not so good and some downright troublesome.

 

So, whatever route you take, lose the files you have onboard at the moment and start looking for others. JV at ORBX has some posted.

Thought I would try again as I used to have crashes. Tried REX, works no CTD and looks sensational! thanks for posting this

I used ENB on my prior rig with a GTS250, older drivers (182.xx's) and the older eNhancer (prior to Inspector) and never had any crashes or problems with ENB.

 

Then back in July I build a new rig with a GTX670FTW using the 301.42 drivers and Inspector and MSI Afterburner to control the fan speeds. I started experiencing some crashes while using ENB, which I never had a problem with on my last rig.

 

Turns out after doing some research that using MSI Afterburner in conjunction with ENB is what was causing the crashes. One I turned off Afterburner the crashes went away with ENB. 

So, in short, if you're using Afterburner or any software (other than Inspector) to control your fan speeds or overclock your GPU then it could be worth a shot to disable that hardware and see if your ENB crashes stop. Worth a try anyway.

I use the payware program called Shade which does the same thing and so far no crashes.  It has a high learning curve though.  Think it is less than $10.  It might avoid many frustrations.

I found the "window to full screen" fix in the avsim guide, made a couple tests in windowed mode and sim didn't crash.

Do you guys run FSX in a window or fullscreen?

Always fullscreen mode.

 

I cannot give up on ENB. I just looks too amazing and realistic. Since it is always a "d3d9.dll" related error I am thinking of the payware program "DLL-Files Fixer" from this website: http://www.dll-files.com/fixer/ . Could this program fix the frustrating "d3d9.dll" error? What do you guys think?

 

Thank you

Try Reshade. Looks just as good as ENB with none of the instability (I can alt-enter as many times as I like, or close to it anyway, without a crash--with ENB I would be very lucky to get a single alt-enter in before crashing it) and without the FPS hit, either.

Do you mean the program Shade?  That program also has ENBSeries.ini settings in the Shade directory.  Cheap program and it makes FSX look great!

Thanks James.  I was not aware of this program.  I'm trying to figure out where I was when it was released.  I have a 34 inch monitor now (got rid of the old 30 inch Dell) and I've really never seen the need to use EnbSeries or SweetFX.  I've tried both but had anomalies or crashes so stopped the frustrations and kept things as they are.  I use Shade occasionally and it seems to enhance my photoscenery but using it less now.  Just too many toys.

Thank you very much James! I installed reshade to FSX and its truly a replacement for ENB. It can look just as awesome as ENB or even better! And it doesnt crash!

Hallelujah!

 

Many greetings,

Patrick, glad to help spread the word. I felt exactly the same way when I found it. Turns out FSX is a lot more fun when you're not always worried it's about to crash!
