Thanks for the info. Just wanted to make sure my first post didn't break any rules. Ok so the problem i'm having is that with my FSX steam edition when I either try to save the game or exit it it CTD's. Doesn't say what the problem is only FSX has encountered an error and is restarting. I've been searing for awhile trying to find an answer to this but I can't find anyone who's had a CTD involving trying to save the game. Actually now that I think about it the CTD involves trying to bring up anything that takes you away from the action. Want to read the manuals that you can bring up? CTD. Want to make a new flight plan? CTD. It's driving me mad and I can't find a solution for it which sucks. So yeah if you guys have a hint of what might be going on so I can hopefully be at least pointed in the right direction I would be thankful.
