Default Crash Crash Crash! DCS World

DCS world keeps crashing.

I start a mission with the BS2 and 5 minutes in Crash!.

Checked all the 3GB options on XP also so its not a memory problem.

Multi-player crash after a few minutes when I get into a server, otherwise most of the time crashing in the load up screen.

BS2 stand alone is ok, but there are some nice tweaks in DCS World for the bird, its so frustrating.

The SU25 T seems to run ok most of the time, but still crashes.

I am not going for the A10-C because of this problem with DCS World.

I want to get into the game in more Depth, is there anything I can do I have not seen or missed on the forums.

I have been searching them for last few days, and I appreciate many people are getting similar issues.

But there still seems to be quite a few players online having a good time while I spend most of my time bloody reloading DCS World.

AARRRRRRRGH

I feel your pain. I can't even fly DCS World in the A-10. Crashes 100% of the time on mission load. I'm waiting on a response from the developers and I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one.

In your directory, there are crash log files. You might want to upload the text of one to your message in case someone from the company or another knowledgeable person takes a look at your message.

Yes it's to bad. At least the 104th DCS server is fairly stable so I would realy like a spesification on their setup of computer and communication. In the mean time play LOMAC, FC2 and BS1.

I was having issues as well however I sorted mine out by providing systems specs, and crash logs and finally worked the problem.

If you want to get to the bottom of your problems check out your crash logs, windows event view logs and provide as much info as you can so the community can help you.

Default Luck or what!?

Guys

Thanks for your replies

I dont know if this is sods law, well it must be.

I decided to lower all the settings in DCS World, and loaded the FAM flight in BS2

And the bloody thing never crashed, lol

I will try to tweak it up a bit and see if its still ok

will let you know.

Just for info

Windows XP, 3.4ghz Dual Core, 3GB DDR2, NVIDIA Geforce GTX 550Ti

Will look at getting them logs pasted up

Fingers crossed.

O and by the way when I loaded up DCS World tonight.

I went to start and clicked update DCS World, there never seemed to be any update, and it started the game.

Maybe that's got something to do with it ?

Lets see

Default Back to crash this morning

Wanted to let you guys know how it went.

Stayed on line with no issues last night.

And come this morning its crashing again.

This is very unusual.

It was in the SU25T this morning and last night was ok with BS2 so will see if that makes a difference.

Unhappy

Just reporting in.

The game constantly crashes when I try to get online, this is just unacceptable in this era of gaming.

I know its not my system, or internet connection, as I have many title that I regularly play online with no issues what so ever.

Until I see a patch or update with fix that fixes this most annoying issue.

I firmly keep my wallet in its place, with a little regret as want to get the A10-C

Cmon ED sort it out.

Its the sad reality of multiplayer at the moment unfortunately. The only types of missions that seem to work OK, are simple missions with less than 10 players (that all join at seperate times), and no CBUs. There doesn't seem to be as much complaining around here as their used to be, I think that is because a lot of people are starting to give up.

I am just living in hope that a dedicated server program is just around the corner that will solve everyone's problems, and those 32+ player games with all aircraft types that people have been dreaming of can become a reality.

Stable dedicated server + TARS with CA functionality = the dream that keeps me playing this.

Absolutely.

I hope the same thing.

But should I be hoping for that, when DCS World is meant to be just that?

Its something that should already be sorted.

who cares if you have all the modules in one application, when you can play them individually, this is the whole point of DCS World, so all players and all modules can fly in the same world and have some awesome battles, surely.

If they wanted it to be a launcher I would never of bothered with the download, and wouldnt of wasted my time.

Anyway I have pasted below one of my crash infos, its not a log but hope a dev will make some sense of it, if thier not busy designing new aircraft for a faulty multi-player application
