FSX startup error

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Today I have installed some scenery and now I ma getting this weird error.

1.00000000000000000000000 is greater than 1000000000000.0000000000000000000000000000.

I only have the option of pressing ok, then FSX start.

Any idea or help.

I tried to uninstall the scenery but no luck.

That has to do with an effect in the effects folder, I don't remember the exact cause, it was something like Lifetime=2.000,1.000 where the first number was larger than the last - or vice verse, I can't remember. Have you done anything or installed anything recently that might have added or modified some effects? Maybe try sorting the effects folder by date in windows explorer and see if anything near the top rings any bells? (you can start Notepad and drag an .fx into the open Notepad window to check)


Here's another thread about that error (see specifically Anthony's reply)

Hi Jim,

Thank you very much, yes that was my problem,

I had a back up of my effects folder and replaced it and it worked.

I just need to find from the new effects the ones that cause the issue.

Thanks a million Jim, you saved my day.

Best regards
