  1. Thx. This seems to have fixed my issue. I still think there's some memory leakage going on somehow. I have 16gb physical and upped my swapfile to 2.4-20gb.
  2. For me and one other person (posted down below in the CTD subforum) it's the Seattle area in particular. Anyone else here? I did everything the MS people told me to (basically a link to a troubleshooting page I'd already seen) and nothing helped. For me it seems more likely to crash with the TBM 930 but it happens almost as much in the twin Diamond. I'm going to try upping my pagefile again.
  3. Yes, me too. I can't get near Seattle unless I'm in the Cessna 172. I can load a viable flight at Tacoma Narrows. Also KSEA seems to be OK at night [Edit-- no, it loads but CTD either shortly before or after take-off]. JFK seems to be another one. I've tried tinkering with settings til I'm sick of it. I reinstalled it on a new m.2 drive. The load times are so slow that troubleshooting these is time-consuming and excruciating. It's way too late now to get a refund. The tech support is nigh useless. I have a thread below discussing this; also w/ my specs (except for the new m.2 drive) and a screenieof the memory exception error message that sometimes appears.
  4. Turned all the graphics settings down and thoguht I'd narrowed it down to lens flare or depth of field, but apparently not. Here's the error message I sometimes get:
  5. Right before or right after I load a flight at a large airport like KSEA or KDEN with almost any aircraft of any complexity, FS20 crashes to the desktop. The program has also crashed twice while in the air just approaching KSEA. I've been changing settings for several days, but this seems to be the culprit. This started after the patch a few days ago. The aircraft I've flown the most is the TBM 930 and everything seemed fine until I got close to KSEA. I can't load the 747 at JFK, can't load the Beech King Air at KDEN. The Cessna 172 is fine and so is the twin Diamond. Ironically, the regular Citation seems to be fine. The TBM 930 was fine at Telluride, a high res airport, so apprently it isn't the hi res airports. I've turned settings down, I've tried turning airport vehicle density down, have switched from Live Air Traffic to AI Air Traffic, live to preset Wx. None of it seems to matter. Any help appreciated. Specs: Ryzen 2700X, 16 GB RAM, EVGA 1070-SC, Intel 730 SSD (nothing overclocked), CH Products stick and pedals. Resolution is 1080p. Gigabit internet.
  6. The panel* lights looked fine by themselves, to me. Tonight however, every time I tried to engage the panel lights the !*$#!! cabin lights came on, and the switches for each moved together regardless of which one was being "flicked." And no panel lights at all , , , I double-checked "pilot controls aircraft lighting" was on. *SOLVED: I was confusing the INSTRUMENT lights with the cabin, et al, lights. (The panel, cabin, and map lights all work together)
  7. From Leroy Cook's article in the October 2003 issue of Private Pilot, reporting on a real flight test with a turbocharged 680E: 3400 rpm for takeoff. 3200 rpm climb. "The little Lycomings can pull a maximum of 48 inches manifold pressure to give 340 HP for sea level take-off. . . 44.5" manifold pressure at 8000 ft. . . .it's unstated but understood that two mins. is the take-off power duration, after which the sea level power limit is 45" at 3200 rpm." "I like to fly away at Vyse, about 100 mph, but . . . it can be yanked off the ground at 80 mph in 1000 ft. of runway." "Once off, the throttles are pulled back to the top of the green or less and rpm is reduced to 3200; but a quieter cruise climb at 2750 can be conducted at 130--135 mph. Climb rate is about 1500 fpm with all engines operating at max conditions." [this airplane was 43 years old at the time] "The original specs showed a 226 mph cruise speed on 65% power at 10,000 ft. Today's pilots can would probably figure on 190 kts. burning about 19 gph per side, pulling about 28" of manifold pressure. The usual cruise rpm is 2600 revs, which turns the propellers at 1700 rpm." There's no mention of conversion because this aircraft was, iirc, manufactured as turbocharged, but he does mention that the overhaul cost of $35K per engine (Lycoming GSO-480) was cost prohibitive. At the time, the airplane (TG-DEL) was still in the hands of its original owner, who had it in for TLC at Downtown Air Park in OKC. I thought he mentioned the name of the outfit doing the work, but if so I'm missing it. Note: Leroy was a writer and Sr. Editor for the now-defunct Private Pilot magazine, and author of 100 Things To Do with Your Private Pilot's License. I was lucky enough to have him as my flight instructor. Anyway, thanks for the mod!
  8. I'm another who'd like the wooden panel but prefers the more worn look of the rest of the interior.
