Back to SP2 after some down time

Recommended Posts

I got back from visiting the family interstate for Xmas over the weekend, and fired up FSX SP2 only to find that I could run a flight for no more than about 30 seconds before FSX crashed with the message "Microsoft Flight Simulator has stopped working", and the one which asks if you want to send more information about the problem. Of course I immediately thought that this was evidence of another SP2 bug which would eventually drive me to curse SP2, MS and the hard working guys at ACES. I even put the Vista disk in the drive and reinstalled Windows along with all my other bits and pieces. When I installed and ran FSX RTM I found that I still had the problem, and I wondered if some kind of SP2 gremlin had survived the deletion of my Vista partition.It wasn't long before sense prevailed however. I live in Western Australia where it is starting to get very hot. We had some pretty mild weather prior to Xmas, but it has gotten a lot hotter since I returned home. So I began to investigate CPU temperature and found that sure enough when I ran FSX the temperature was in excess of AMD specifications. I have since forgone months of add-on purchases in favour of an air conditioner, and fortunately SP2 is back to working as advertised.So I just wanted to let you know that SP2 has not let me down. So far it is going great, and I look forward to a time when I can again afford some cool SP2 specific add-ons.Mike.
