FA50 EX crashes constantly

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just bought this bird and I probably shouldn't have, but it looked so nice.

I have the standard AP/FMS issues with the Phenom 300, and I should have stayed away.

Anyways, I bought this the other day and have been unable to fly it since.  I have Track IR, and the first crash happened when I turned my head too quick.  The game crashed out and I had a "your computer ran out of memory" error.  I have 32 GB of RAM, and while I understand something about FSX maxes the vram out at 4gbs, I have not had any other issues with any other planes. 

I am running with ORBX scenery (Global, Vector, North America, NA Alaska/Canada, and Lights, along with the freeware Airports, libraries), Active Sky 2016, Active Sky Cloud Art, Pro-ATC-x, and PDMG 737-800.  All of that was running except the 737.  This first crash happened during the initial Navigraph upload, so perhaps there was too much going on?

The crashes after this... I paused track IR so there would be no movements while the navigraph did it's initial startup.  After this, I unpaused Track IR and turned my head back and forth, with no crashes.  I was in window mode (to be safe, until I reached cruise) and tried to open the radio stack and it showed up black and the game crashed out again, but without the memory warning.  I had several other crashes after this, all while trying to open panels.  I only received the memory error the first time.

Any ideas on this?  I'm running an intel i5 8600k with a GTX 970, 32GB of RAM on Windows 10. 

My settings are at the recommended ORBX minimal settings, so pretty much high/ultra high

I've researched this issue all last night with little help, so I'm reaching out to the community.  Thanks all!  Oh an for the record I have flown with the PDMG 737 on these same settings with no issues whatsoever.

If your hardware is in good condition including your power supply and voltages and heat are well within specification the most probable cause is a conflict with another program running in the background, including a virus.

If you are overclocking the computer RAM, CPU or video card I suggest you put everything back to stock settings.

If you are running FSX, you do have a Virtual Memory limitation of about 4 GB.

This is not hardware (RAM or VRAM), but software address space.

This is also known as OOM errors..

The only remedy (other than going to a 64 bit sim like P3D V4) is to dial back some of your scenery settings... You can track Virtual Memory usage via FSUIPC and see how close to the 4 GB limit you are getting..
