[P3Dv4.5] Hang + CTD when flying in heavy weather

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

I was flying VHHX-RJBB this morning in the 744, and descended through some heavy weather into my destination. As I deployed Flaps 1 at the start of my approch to 6R however, I got a sim-hang that lasted about 20 seconds before the whole thing quit to the desktop. Nothing shows up in Event Viewer to recognise the crash.

I've done a bit of detective-work and have two files which may identify the source of the problem.

In the 747's debug log, the last few entries made before the CTD as I was flying in the heavy weather were as follows:

2020/05/23 08:53:51  readPrecipData: Previous cycle not finished.
2020/05/23 08:53:55  readPrecipData: Previous cycle not finished.
2020/05/23 08:54:00  readPrecipData: Previous cycle not finished.
2020/05/23 08:54:04  readPrecipData: Previous cycle not finished.
2020/05/23 08:54:08  readPrecipData: Previous cycle not finished.
2020/05/23 08:54:13  readPrecipData: Previous cycle not finished.
2020/05/23 08:54:17  readPrecipData: Previous cycle not finished.

If this were the cause then I'd assume something to do with activesky would be the case.

dxdiag however suggests that Chaseplane was involved:

+++ WER9 +++:
Fault bucket , type 0
Event Name: AppHangB1
Response: Not available
Cab Id: 0

Problem signature:
P1: ChasePlane.exe
P2: 1.1.86.0
P3: 5eb71a31
P4: 6b69
P5: 134217728
P6: 
P7: 
P8: 
P9: 
P10: 

I am unsure if this is also a potential cause or if this happened as a result of the p3d freeze.

I think there is one other post on these Forums which described a similar issue to what I am reporting, however there appeared to be no real answers given. If anybody has either suffered this themselves or can perhaps speculate the cause, I would very much appreciate any advice in order to prevent repeats (CTDs near to the end of a flight are the bane of my existence).

Many Thanks,

Martin
