freeze then CTD in Scotland

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm having an issue of late with what seems to be Scotland scenery. If ever I start FS9 at EGPH or other locations in Scotland it takes for ever to load, then I get frame rates of 1-2, regardless of the aircraft.If I fly into EGPH for example from EGKK FS9 drops in FPS to 1-2 then CTD occurs, again regardless of aircraft.It seemed to start when I first installed the freeware EGPH scenery, so I removed it. I also had the Scotflight scenery installed, then removed it also. Neither seems to have fixed the problem.Any suggestions? I am running XP pro and FS9.1 patch.

There was a problem with the Scotflight Scenery a while back with one of the textures for Rosyth, I believe. See the Scotflight forum( http://www.visualflight.co.uk/scotflight/ ) for more info and the fix.The other thing that occurs to me is a duplicate AFCAD file for EGPH. Look for that in the add-on Scenery folder of FS9 manually or there is a free utility called ScanAFD available here http://www.nwlink.com/~erogwhich works very nicely and can be very helpful.Hope that helps,Ed GreenKCLThttp://www.panelshop.com/DEV.jpg

Thanks Ed,I ended up deleting all add- on scenery entries in my scenery.cfg (after creating a back up of course!) and she runs okay. So I will now try your suggested AFD tool (thanks) and reinstall the old scenery.cfg with some mods.I'll check out the Rosyth patch.
