Has Anyone Had This Issue

Recommended Posts

I am asking this question here due to the fact that I have too many variables to put it any of the specific forums.

Recently I purchased the 777 from PMDG and the supporting voice control from FS2crew. Around the same time I added ASN to my FSX experience.

The issue I am having is that upon touchdown at my destination airport (PHNL primarily due to the low strain on my CPU) once the nose wheel touches down I start hearing an audible "bing" from my computer. As I taxi in it eventually causes my session of FSX to crash. I have tried changing the settings to stop this, initially believing it was ASN downloading on landing but have not isolated it.

I am wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue? With the numerous addons and the updates and patches I have no idea where to start.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Nicholas,

 

It surely sounds like you're getting an audible warning from fsuipc (it's a module in your FSX/modules folder) that you're sim is about to run out of memory( oom). Do a search here in our various forums for those oom errors and you'll find plenty solutions to either reduce and/or limit this occurrence.

 

Cheers,

Pete

Pete,

Thank you for the quick reply and the advice. I have avoided the dreaded OOM until now apparently. I appreciate the help and will check out the forums for an answer on how to adjust.

Thank you again,

Nick

The AVSIM CTD Guide provides some information about running out of virtual address space (VAS) and provide some suggestions on slowing down the depletion of VAS. The FSUIPC utility has the ability to tell you how much VAS you have remaining and display it while using FSX in Windowed Mode. The AVSIM CTD Guide provides guidance for setting this up. I have it logged to my fsuipc.log and look at it after a flight to see how much VAS I had before taking off and how much was left at the end. It also records VAS usage during the flight and you'll see it fluctuate up and down depending on what is loaded and the view.

 

Best regards,

I was getting that fsuipc beep earlier this year. First just on longer flights. Then started beeping on short flights.  I discovered an overheating processor due to the cooler breaking loose from the main board. A new cooler and a good cleaning inside took care of the problem.

Thank you gentlemen for the suggestions and guidance. I will give these suggestions a try when I get done with work today. These helicopters want their TLC too...

 

Do you have HIGHMEMFIX=1 in your FSX.cfg?

I do have the HIGHMEMFIX=1 in my config file. I think I have just about every tweak with the exception of the buffer pools (never made me any money it seemed). But thank you, sir.
