Weird Freezing on landing?

Recommended Posts

I just finished a flight from RJTT to ZBAA, and either my joystick is acting up, or my computer is, but for whatever reason RC4 would not tell me to turn off at the next high speed etc, and whenever I tried to do  anything with the joystick FSX would freeze up.  It didn't seem to be a FPS issue, as when I looked at it while it was working the FPS was hovering between 30-50 fps. I haven't flown very much in a long long time so I don't remember if there was this issue previously in FSX or not. Any advice is appreciated.  (Beijing Capital and I forget the one in Tokyo, I hope I have the right call signs)

I would recommend you run a driver update program like the one I use, Driver Booster.  It will scan your system for outdated drivers and, if any are found, will download and install the updated drivers.  This is important if you have Windows 10 or Windows 8.1 installed as manufacturers are constantly updating their hardware for these new platforms.  It may not be your joystick drivers but it could be one of the USB ports that needs updating.

 

You can also try removing the joystick from the USB connection, trying another USB port or waiting a few seconds and plugging it back into the same USB port.
