747 pauses periodically

Recommended Posts

In flight the 747 pauses often to the point of total pc lock up.Is this a bug or have people figured out why it happens? It's driving me crazy.

As Chris mentioned, it's usually the result of FSUIPC autosave.

Basically, our aircraft saves a TON of data in the background any time the basic FSX/P3D save function is used, because the FSX/P3D save doesn't include the majority of our systems information that the sim doesn't provide variables for. When you first save, it's not a huge issue, but as autosave continues to do it, all of the saves stack up and eventually get too much for your processor to handle on top of the sim itself.

I have the paid version of the new FSUIPC for P3D v4 and I don't use autosave. During preflight ie cargo loading with PMDG features and GSX the sim runs smooth.  But, I imagine the amount of data increases once aircraft is in flight.  So I am at a loss as to what this issue can be.

Shouldn't be an issue; however, while in flight the simulator might be loading scenery objects and sometimes that can cause very annoying pauses that last up to 3 sec.  You were not very concise with your description of your "total eclipse" of your PC so I don't know if you are observing 3 sec or 30 min.  Speaking of which, are all processes in the PC pausing or just the simulator?

The P3D v4 stops responding.  I just tried again and at 21 minutes into the flight it locks up.  The freeze periods last around 20 seconds every 5 minutes or so and sometimes on view changes. This is with the 747 not the 777 which runs smooth.  I think I wrote that the issue is with the 777 but it's actually the 747.  It wasn't always like this. but, it has been happening after the last couple updates to the product.

What are you running alongside the sim and 747?

Direct Texture, Active Sky 2016, sometimes Aivalsoft EFB or FSCommander 9.7 and an ACARS program. I made a trouble ticket with PMDG and they are giving me a few things to try.  I'll post if it worked or not in a few

Try without this.

Potentially this, but more likely the EFB.

Thanks for the help. I've been in contact with their support team and it turns out the issue was overheating and updated drivers.

 

Thanks again
