DC-6 FSX Screen fades to black

Recommended Posts

I checked the forum and could not find anything on my problem. I am running FSX all updates Gold edition.

After about 30 to 45 mins. My screen fades to black but FSX never errors out. This is the first PMDG plane so I am not sure what I did wrong.

I have set FSX up as the docs said and changed my FSX.cfg file per the docs as well. 

Thanks for any info.

You probably climbed above 10,000 ft without pressurizing the cabin and "passed out".

I suggest reading the POH, particularly the section on pressurisation

Check out this thread

I believe they are simulating you running out of oxygen and passing out. The cabin pressure controller is on the overhead above the co-pilot (that will get you started anyway, there may be a little more to it that I have not figured out yet! :-)

Yep I feel stupid I forgot I did not set it because I was going to stay under 10K.
