Can you ever recover from a frozen P3D

Recommended Posts

Hi

I planned this Air France T777-300ER flight from OLBA to LFPG. 4:38 min. Flew over Greece, Turkey, Italy the Alps and 20 minutes to land P3d v4.4 Froze.

Aircraft was configured perfectly and about to land.

I tried to wait out "Simulator not responding". 30 minutes passed nothing. Checked CPU1D, GPU-2 utilities, and Task manager things are fine.

Closed few things including UTL, Chrome.exe, .Apple Apps, etc. nothing happened.

Used Processor explorer to change Sim Affinity and Priority. Nothing happened

My System Specs are presumably good

P3D v4.4 latest version

PMDG T7 latest update

Intel Core i7 8700K Coffee lake core speed 3.7-4.3 Ghz

ASUSTEK MOB

16 GB Ram

GTX 1080 10 GB memory

Samsung 46" HD

AS4 is uptodate 

Sim was claiming about 6.6 GB of memory

Ruined my sunday

Question: is there anyway to recover at this point when you get that dreadful whitish screen and the blue "waiting circle" or just call it quit?

Thanks

Bill Hagag

If you have the FSUIPC autosave feature enabled you could restore the flight in a new session. Just be aware that you could end up with a lot of disk space lost to the Autosaves which is why I have configured mine to save every 10 minutes and overwrite the old one. If you waited for 30mins and the sim didn't come alive again you can be pretty certain that it isn't going to miraculously resurrect itself after all that time.

Cheers!

Is this a regular thing or a one-time or rare occurrence?  Anything untowards in the Windows event viewer?

I've heard of this happening in Win 10 if game mode is not on and Windows installs an update (and is pending a restart outside "quiet hours") while the sim is running.  It could be related to coming into range of the destination airfield, too...perhaps an AI acft with a bad livery.  A recurring problem with crashes when in/near the approach phase often are scenery or AI related, but a one-time event could be one of many things.

A periodic FSUIPC autosave as Tony recommends is an option for something of an insurance policy, especially with a panel that does good complete state saves and reloads like the PMDG birds do.  Just do it sparingly with the awareness that it's typical to get a several second pause whenever autosave does its thing.  Once every 15-30 min shouldn't be too bothersome in that regard.  Or a manual save prior to commencing descent, perhaps.

Regards

Thank you friends

No it is not a regular thing. It could be one of the above reasons you mentioned.

Unfortunately since I moved to P3D i do not have FSUIPC. I was told it is not required in P3D.

It does the same exact stuff it did for fax.
