Crashing on European airports

Postby davidsrsb » Fri Feb 14, 2014 11:55 am

Win7 64 with force 32 bit
RC1 to RC4
I get a crash as soon as I move at European airports like Gatwick and Orly.
No problems with the default SF and Asian airports

Should I still be using force 32 bit with V3?

Have you removed your autosave.xml? Sometimes, when you change the RC, it uses the old autosave and it is no longer compatible.

Another idea: do you have your fgdata updated? Especially if you are using regional textures. If some of the regional files cannot be found, the simulator crashes leaving a cryptic message about pthread. To check this, you can try to set View->Rendering options->Global textures instead of regional and reset.

"Get a crash" is a bit light to have a idea of what's going on. What crashes ? Does FG launches or not at all, any messages on the console, etc.
I would probably recommend you to:
- not for 32 bits (I don't see any reason for);
- the Paris region is very heavy, depending on your processor and RAM and video. Moreover, we currently have small issues there with the latest scenery.

I really don't know if there's something in particular with European airports, and indeed FG 3.5 crashed mostly while flying around LPPR and LPPT, but also got a crash from the default SFO situation.

I wasn't getting crashes with the previous RCs.

Windows 7.1, 64 bit, 16 GB DDR3, intel i5 2500k @ 3,3GHz, Geeforce GTX 650 Ti 1 GB GDDR5.

P.S.: It crashes easily on a PC with 8GB RAM, but just had 1 crash in my 16 GB tower. Might it be a memory leak?

I uninstalled FG, removed files in Appdata and reinstalled RC4 as a 64 bit program. Now I can fly at Gatwick. Orly seems to cause a fast memory leak that makes it run like treacle
