PMDG 777 and 747 freezing after takeoff

Recommended Posts

Hello. I have a recurring issue. Shortly after takeoff, the PMDG 777 and PMDG 747 both cause FSX to freeze for about 3-4 minutes and then resume, and then it doesn't happen again. It only happens after takeoff on these two planes. I checked the task manager to see how much memory FSX SE was using and it was about 911-912 mb, which is about 1000 below the memory limit for a single app. Again, its not crashing, but freezing for 3-4 minutes after takeoff, then resuming, and then running smoothly for the rest of the flight. The PMDG 737 has no issues. Any ideas?

Do the planes exhibit this no matter which airport you take off from, just asking to eliminate a possible scenery issue: Detailed scenery + complex aircraft... you know the score. :cool:

Yes no matter what airport. I have taken off on the 777 from Athens and Jakarta and the 747 from Guangzhou in the last month and on all three flights, FSX has frozen after takeoff for 3-4 minutes, and then resuming and running smoothly. Here are my scenery add-ons:

According to the AVSIM CTD Guide, this is caused by the FSUIPC Autosave feature.  Disable.
