737NGX crashes when switching on dome light

Recommended Posts

After a 4 hour flight i switched on the dome light and it crashed straight to the desktop with no Prepar3D has stopped working. No report in the event viewer or the appcrash!

 

Not sure why this has happened? Bad install of the 737 NGX ?

No, not a bad install. I've seen this as well and it's also happened randomly when refreshing scenery textures. I think it is a P3D issue, somehow loading textures causes this to happen maybe once every 20 times I use the dome light switch. Now I've become spooked by this and do a save before using that control. Happens 777 or NGX as well.

Hi dan. Well i'm glad its not my system or only me. I've also posted it on P3D forum.

Dan just got another crash using the dome light after a 4 hour flight. is this a PMDG bug because L/M isn't claiming responsibility

What is in the crash report?

 

I haven't heard of this until now. Since we'd had the NGX in P3D since v2.5 and haven't heard about it until now (v3.1), I'd imagine it came up due to updates in v3.1. That's just my initial thought, however.

I'm not sure kyle either never had this problem with V3

 

Nothing is logged in appcrash or event viewer.

Frustrating, but without that, it's nearly impossible to find out where the situation lies. One might think that it's easy: you click a PMDG button and the sim crashes. The issue though, could also be that our simulation is calling something that was damaged in the update. If what we're calling the sim to display got messed up in the 3 > 3.1 update, then it would definitely also cause a problem, and one that we can't fix. They'd have to.

Not got a clue why its not getting logged!

 

Is anyone else having this problem with V3.1 kyle?

Yours is the first I've seen. I routinely use the dome light when prepping flights in 3.1 without issue.

Should i do a clean install kyle

 

I don't see how it could help. If it's happening only a certain amount of time, it sounds a lot more like it's a sim issue...very much like that MSVCR issue.

Yup, it happens rare enough to be impossible to track down. Even P3Dv2.5 would do this but if I used the simulator every day it would only happen every couple of months.

Hi Kyle,

 

Sorry to dig up an old post, but I've been having this issue too in p3d v3.4. Twice it's happened after shutdown at the gate at the new flytampa EHAM. Last night was the second time. When I get home from work I'll find the crash log and post it here. Has anyone been able to track down the cause yet? I'm glad it happens at the end of my flights, I had just arrived from Denver, no issues on the way...

 

Regards,

 

SanderEdit: was flying the 777-200 PH-BQT.

Hi again,

 

Looked for a p3d crash report but couldn't find one. I did find a COUATL one though. I am now thinking that GSX was the culprit and that the moment of crashing while switching on the dome light was mere coincidence both times.

 

Will post my crash report over at FSDreamTeam, perhaps it will help them.

 

Regards,

Sander
