Creating FSX database

Recommended Posts

Hey there Maarten, I've tried twice to load up SLX to no avail. It seems to get stuck at 3% "Saving database objects" and at 96% "Saving 20701 approaches". The first time the clock stopped and froze at just over 47 minutes. This time, as the screenshot shows, it froze up at 58:43.

Hi Barry,

SLX did not actually hang, but I'm afraid your laptop (i5 M520@2.4GHz) is just too slow to finish the database creation process within a reasonable time. On my machine (i7 6700K) it takes 10 minutes to process 387 scenery layers with 28690 scenery .bgl files. On your machine it will probably take more than 2 hours to finish with just 168 scenery layers and 18930 .bgl files. I noticed that saving the airports to the database took 4 minutes and 6 seconds on your machine; on my machine it takes just 4 seconds and that's really strange. Another part of the problem is that you only have 2GByte of RAM on your laptop and Windows is probably paging memory to the hard disk a lot. 2Gbyte is also not enough to run Window+FSX+SLX at the same time. I'm afraid you won't have much fun running SLX on your laptop.

thanks, Maarten

That's why I call it my "craptop". :laugh:

Ah well, I'll tackle it if/when I ever upgrade but thanks anyway Maarten!

Barry
