  1. I get 60 FPS in MSFS with everything set on ultra 90% of the time. The real bummer is when I fly out of JFK and my FPS jumps down to a horrid 40 FPS. 😉 This sim runs incredibly well, whenever I see someone posting that they're having problems, I always reply that its most likely the PC. I had lots of issues early on with CTDs, until someone was nice enough to suggest I check my XMP settings in the BIOS. Sure enough, that was it. I think what it comes down to -- most times, its something to do with the PC, not the software. Sure, anything can crash and often does. Just last night I lost a LOT of work in photoshop because it crashed, and that software is ancient.
  2. This seems a little over-the-top and actually proves Mace's point.
  3. I've seen some of the previews for the new XP and I'm convinced they still can't get the lighting right. I could be wrong, but I think for them to get a convincing atmosphere and that might require them pretty much starting from scratch. MSFS just keeps getting better and better and lets face it, they have the cash to stay in the game. Who knows what will happen with XP in the next 2-3 years?
  4. I had frequent CTD's on a brand new machine running a 3080 and I had no idea why. Turns out in the BIOS, an XMP setting had been turned on. Once I turned that off, I haven't a single CTD. I agree, if you're having issues with this sim, you need to find out where the needle is, but, IT IS there, and once you figure it out -- this thing is truly amazing.
  5. Hi all, So I've been using the TBM mod and love it. I had a question about the torque and power though. I can't use 100% power without the TRQ going into the red. I know you don't need to full power to get this girl into the air, but even at higher elevations, it'll still go into the red. Is this just normal ops or am I doing something wrong? As always, thank you. Cheers
  6. And further - I’ve seen the previews up the upcoming X-Plane release. Until they can figure out lighting alone, they’ll be lost in the dust. MSFS is so immersive on just the lighting alone that it will continue to leave XPlane in the dust. This is not me hating on XPlane. I’ve used it for years and love it. But if they want to stay alive, they’re gonna have to start innovating, which in a lot of cases, ends up saving a company. Either way, I’m happy to see my life long hobby have this unexpected rebirth.
  7. I think at this point, there can’t be an argument against MSFS being the de facto simulator. Even with its flaws, it’s leaps-and-bounds ahead of anything else. Also, there’s a dev team that’s so involved with the community compared to others, there’s just no competition.
  8. They're not working on a 737MAX and have never said they are. They are however working on the 737NG for MSFS.
  9. This was the FIRST change I made and the ONLY change I made. I've literally been using MSFS like I've been begging to for almost 3 months now. I was skeptical it was just a coincidence at the 3rd hour mark, I kept on knocking on wood. But, after almost 6 hours of straight usage, I think that quick fix did it. I tried all types of weather, AI Traffic configs, WT G3000 and TBM Mods, in Paris, NYC, even in word not allowed weather I could only fly in before for 5 minutes. As I said, those hours were so enjoyable that I'd hate to jinx it, but I think somiller had it just right. I'm just curious, as I've read on up on it a little bit, but it's crazy one little setting caused all that fuss? Although, I've been around Flight Sim long enough to know how fickle this software is and has always been, it's just crazy to me. I'll definitely take into consideration to everyone else's suggestion, especially with power unit and cooling, and memtest, et al. All great ideas. Thank you so much again, everyone.
  10. Thanks Rich for your reply. I've never had an issue getting the sim to load. Often times I can fly for about an hour or so (definitely shorter as well) before I get a no error CTD. Someone was nice enough above to check my XMP settings in the BIOS and sure enough, I had a profile assigned. So, just rebooting now. Fingers crossed. Good to know a support ticket response was almost immediate. Once again, thanks for your reply.
  11. I haven't overclocked anything. Are you talking about using MSI Afterburner to bring the GPU down a little? Thank you for your response.
  12. THANK YOU so much for the response. It's strange. I ran the report you asked for but it only has two and they're from back in April, and I can assure, I've had several crashes since then. Here's but both of them say: Description Faulting Application Path: C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.15.8.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\FlightSimulator.exe Problem signature Problem Event Name: MoAppCrash Package Full Name: Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.15.8.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe Application Name: praid:App Application Version: 0.0.0.0 Application Timestamp: 60783c14 Fault Module Name: ucrtbase.dll Fault Module Version: 10.0.19041.789 Fault Module Timestamp: 2bd748bf Exception Code: 80000003 Exception Offset: 000000000007372c OS Version: 10.0.19042.2.0.0.768.101 Locale ID: 1033 Additional Information 1: d4e4 Additional Information 2: d4e417cb640444ff0e3e33cbd5e7a9ab Additional Information 3: 6a4b Additional Information 4: 6a4b44c5242455f30477f351e84d10ea Extra information about the problem Bucket ID: 2823ab76e39c5b703afde767edacd02a (1944965047649095722) Description Faulting Application Path: C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.15.8.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\FlightSimulator.exe Problem signature Problem Event Name: MoAppCrash Package Full Name: Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.15.8.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe Application Name: praid:App Application Version: 0.0.0.0 Application Timestamp: 60783c14 Fault Module Name: ucrtbase.dll Fault Module Version: 10.0.19041.789 Fault Module Timestamp: 2bd748bf Exception Code: 80000003 Exception Offset: 000000000007372c OS Version: 10.0.19042.2.0.0.768.101 Locale ID: 1033 Additional Information 1: d4e4 Additional Information 2: d4e417cb640444ff0e3e33cbd5e7a9ab Additional Information 3: 6a4b Additional Information 4: 6a4b44c5242455f30477f351e84d10ea Extra information about the problem Bucket ID: 2823ab76e39c5b703afde767edacd02a (1944965047649095722)
  13. Hi Guys, I know, I know -- we've all seen a bunch of these posts, but I'm truly at my wits end. I think I've tried nearly everything to stop the CTD's without error messages. They're so bad and frequent at times, that it will often just reset the computer all together. I've tried adding my virtual memory, turned off game mode, run as administrator, made sure all my drivers and software is up-to-date, repair, reset and reinstall. The CTD's still keep happening. Here's the kicker. It's a pretty good system and I'm only running it at 1080p with default everything. The sim will crash with blue skies in the middle of nowhere. Here are my specs: Operating System: Windows 10 Home Edition (64-Bit) Chassis: Phanteks P400A Mid-Tower, Black Chassis Fans: Standard Chassis Fans Motherboard: Gigabyte Z490 Aorus PRO AX, LGA 1200 Processor: Intel Core i7 11700K (5.1GHz Boost Clock) Eight Core CPU Cooling: Corsair H60 120mm CPU Liquid Cooler System Memory: 32GB Corsair DDR4 SDRAM 3200MHz Graphics Processor: 10GB Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, GDDR6X System Power: 750 Watt Gold Rated Power Supply Sound Card: 7.1 Channel High Definition Integrated Audio Storage Drive 1: 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus, M.2 NVMe PCIe (SSD) I have noticed just when it crashed recently, that I took a quick look at Task Manger to see the GPU dipped, then spiked to 100% and then BOOM. CTD. The CPU wasn't running over 40% I believe. The only thing I can think is that I might not have enough power? Which would be a bummer, because the good folks at Jetline Systems helped me build this and I would've thought they would've suggested something higher power. However, this is just a guess. I've read to maybe use MSI Afterburner to lower the GPU to 95% as well? But, I'm not even sure its the 3080 causing problems. Either way, It's got to be something on my end because everything is updated and I'm not using 3rd party addons yet. It's heartbreaking, because when it works - it's absolutely PERFECT. 60FPS all the time, no stutters. It's an absolute dream - but I can't get it to go longer than an hour before crashing. Through the years, I've seen people be super helpful to people on our community who just can't figure out why something is happening wrong. Hoping someone can take a look at this and maybe see something that i'm missing. For that, I really do thank you in advance. Yours Truly, Sleepless in KSMO
