ENB Causing FSX to Crash; d3d9.dll

Recommended Posts

So, I've sorted out every single issue with this baby, short of one thing.

 

Something is off. I spent the whole of yesterday ensuring my FSX is rock solid. I'm able to switch between windows with ease, with the T7 loaded up at a complex add on airport. I can also use the default time acceleration and switch back to default without crashing out. (Includes reloading)

 

The issue occurs when I try and use the 8x or higher auto cruise acceleration. When the aircraft has to dial it down from 8x or higher to default again, the simulator crashes out for some reason. I can't fathom why. As we know, 4x to default does NOT require a reload. However, 8x or higher to default DOES. This reload-crash has only played up with auto-cruise, seeing as it works fine when I try and access it from the default FSX menu bar.

 

I look forward to your responses!

 

EDIT:

I'm a major derp. So I decided to trace the crashes through the event viewer log. Turns out it's a d3d9.dll module causing it. In other words, ENB. This is a major suck fest because I adore my ENB and find the default FSX almost intolerable. I've read about running FSX in Win XP SP3 compatibility mode to fix this, and will be trying that. I'll update the thread as required.

I cant remember what ENB does,

 

something about night lighting...or colours?

 

I only know that my hardware/FSX specialist has recommended on NOT using it.

Maybe i/we can offer you semething else that gives similar results without CDTs!

Are you using Direct X 10?

 

I thought I read ENB makes direct X 10 crash or could be something else.

 

Its midnight now and I have just driven around 500KM today so need rest.

It's a common problem using ENB. Try to use sweetfx or something, it's the same thing, and maybe you won't have more crashes using this

Yeah, I just did a 14 hour flight with SweetFX, waaaaaay more stable, not a single crash.

Post Processing effects that change the color palette.

Nope, but ENB is notorious for causing crashes on certain systems. Weirdly enough, my ENB was perfectly fine until I OC'd, so something went iffy somewhere. Either way, I'd had enough of trying to solve the issue and moved to SweetFX. Quite happy now :)
