Weird start issue.

Recommended Posts

Lately every single time I have had to restart FSX after starting up a flight. It will go through the normal loading process of loading a flight, only instead of the typical black screen surrounding the loading window, it will be clear. The flight will load, then minimize. I will be unable to make fsx into a full window. The only thing I can do is just exit fsx, and restart again. This is annoying I didn't use to have to do this. I've not done anything to FSX's settings in a very long time, and wondered if anyone had any previous experience with this particular bug? This only started recently, and happens every time I start FSX. The second time, there are no problems at all with the game.

My FSX has been doing exactly the same thing for some time (except if I start on my default flight) and I have no idea why this suddenly started happening!

 

Rather than restarting FSX however you have a couple of options available:

(1) Open WIndows Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Delete), right click on FSX and select Maximize

or

(2) Double click the small vertical bar at the right hand end of your taskbar

 

Both of these will bring the FSX window back so that you don't have to restart, but I too would really like to know why this problem started happening in the first place and how to prevent it!!

Thanks, it is rather annoying to go through the process more than once. Do you use REX by any chance to start FSX with?

Alt+Enter works for me.

 

First I make sure FSX has "focus".

Not sure if this helps but I had something like this a few weeks back after changing between DX10 and DX9, and playing with NVidia Control Panel and NVidia Inspector.

 

First I went Back to NVidia Control Panel and in the FSX profile, chose to "Restore" the base setup.

 

Then in fsx.cfg I found that the Location entry in Main was set to an odd value, DISPLAY7. I removed the line and started FSX; no problems since.

 

[Main]
Location=359,220,1561,980,\\.\DISPLAY1

Have you rebuilt your FSX.cfg? This fixes most problems with FSX startup. Just move FSX.cfg to another folder or rename it to fsx.orig then restart FSX.

No I don't use Rex.

The problem seems to have something to do with the fact that I run two monitors, and fsx seems to keep starting in the wrong one, and if I go full screen it goes full screen between the two.
