Strange issue with Reboot

Recommended Posts

 I like to run FS2C in an undocked window.  Last evening I had a flight from EWR to RSW , I moved the undocked main panel over to the FS screen and went to re-dock, it immediately disappeared and my mouse cursor changed from the usual pointer icon to the round spinning circle. I was unable to re-evoke the main panel and it was no where to be found.  The mouse cursor spun the rest of the flight and my frame rates went from the upper 20's down to the low teens. This happened when I called for the Descent Checklist. After the main panel disappeared I was able to issue commands which were being interpreted (the appeared in the green info bar) but the 'FO' didn't complete any actions.

  It's almost like FS2Crew threw an exception or crashed.  I checked for applications and processes in the Windows Task Manager with the hopes of killing the process but no joy.  I didn't want to kill FSX as I was 2.5 hours into a 3 hour flight.  Luckily I was able to bring it in unassisted - albeit with very low frame rates and stutters.

 PC wise I have a fairly stodgy system as (i-7 4790 16 RAM, nVidia 980 4 RAM) so this stuttering was unusual.

 

Any thoughts? Attribute to an anomaly, so just chalk it up and see if it happens again?

 

Thanks

Kevin

 

BTW, once I 'lost' my FO I was reminded of just how much work the landing phase is  :unsure:

Weird one... I wonder if you accidentally resized the panels.

 

In the panel.cfg file, change:

 

sizeable=1

 

to a 0

 

in the two FS2Crew windows at the bottom of the screen.

I also have the problem of the spinning mouse, it happens whenever I start the main FS2crew main panel. I am using a 4Ghz I7 on a three monitor system.  I normally get fps in the high 20s, but now it drops to 18 unless I am on an external view.

The fix for the spinning mouse is to undock a second panel.  At least this works for me when going to full screen mode.
