P3D v3 crash but no Event Viewer entry

Recommended Posts

I flew a Bonanza from the WAL VOR on a heading of 120° replicating yesterday’s flight in Concorde. No crash over the problematic area. I’ll try it again with Concorde to see if it’s consistently reproducible. If it is then that would be unique.

Departing Manchester and flying westward there wasn't a problem but after reaching WAL VOR

I turned around and flew back along the same heading that previously caused a crash.

And it crashed for a third time.

Something to do with the heading perhaps. But that would be bizarre. I am truly baffled by this behaviour.

I've seen this before with navigation data embedded in the scenery for a VOR or some other navigation type, cause an issue like yours, but not with all aircraft. Could be the navigation system is choking on something unrecognisable to it.

...another idea could be data from an AIRAC file set if in use somewhere.

FSL Concorde has no database of navigation data unlike the PMDG for example. I need to repeat this test and see how consistent it is. And if I can get Process Monitor running that may give a clue.

I flew my test route with Concorde and with Process Monitor running. Somewhat unusually it failed to crash P3D around the area where it has before.

The log was 4.2Gb so given it contains no useful info I have binned it. I shall try again in a day or so probably with an actual flight from Lisbon to Manchester and starting PM as I approach the danger area.

Should it crash then the hard work of decyphering the log starts! :smile:
