FS9.1 crash while changing to/between certain aircraft ...

Recommended Posts

I have had a problem with getting, "FS2004 has encountered a problem and needs to close" crashes when I'm changing aircraft in mid-flight.The problem SEEMS to be related to changing to or between aircraft from one particular studio only. If I start a flight with these same aircraft and don't change airplanes, there is no issue.This happens with different drivers (ATI Catalyst 4.12 and 5.3, latest Omegas based on Catalyst 5.1).I have a fix (just don't do those particular aircraft changes) but wonder if I am missing another cause that reflects an underlying issue or weakness in my system. I have been having other instances of the "encountered a problem" crash occasionally for reasons I can't connect to anything I'm doing at the time.Thanks,

My experience: only attempt to change in mid-flight if you are in the 2d cockpit. Not the VC, and not the spot view.Some aircraft may still crash FS9 even if you do this.In that case, switch to a default aircraft first (Cessna or Baron) and switch to the other aircraft from there.

Bert,Had reply on another forum which suggested being careful to switch aircraft from 2-D view only - tried but didn't help with the particular aircraft involved. However, your experience includes that.Will now try going to default aircraft first.Thanks......
