  2. DCS Crashing on 2nd mission load: Once a again a potential success in resolving DCS crashing on second mission load but don't get too excited. Did a DCS repair and restarted the pc then went into settings and turned off SSAA SSLR SSAO. Restarted the pc then loaded DCS and was able to load 3 instant action missions in a row, exited the ran DCS again and loaded another 3 instant action missions. Think there is somebody in the thread above who did this and it worked for them. Note that my clouds are set to low. SSAA Super Sample Anti-Aliasing [may have been turned off alre

  5. DCS crashing on 2nd mission load. Somebody created a Facebook poll this issue but so many do not use FB. This is a simple poll creation website that is accessible to everyone if somebody wants to create a poll and share on discord. https://www.strawpoll.me/

      Personally I would have the tail flash the same angle as the leading edge of the fin.

      Yes it does look a little odd. The creator probably did a bit of copying and pasting from other skins.

  7. Re DCS crashed on 2nd mission loading. May 16 3pm. Sadly these crashes have returned. It is really really frustrating. I read Ironhand's recent comments here and the solution seems to be beyond us. Given this is a major beta update to DCS a stealth glitch was to be expected. But I did have a good time flying around in a public server last night. I have enclosed my log from the most recent crash on May 16. If it helps great. dcs.20210516-191628.log
  8. Re DCS crashes on loading 2nd mission: May15 9am. After disabling and uninstalling Tacview and restarting pc I successfully loaded 6 instant action missions in a row this morning. 2xF15, 4xA10, 2xF18. Hopefully this has resolved the issues on my pc. The version of Tacview I had was released pre DCS 2.7 open beta. A new update for Tacview is in beta testing so I will wait till that is released. Now I will continue some testing and increase my clouds which I had set to LOW quality. Then begin adding trusted aircraft mods (A4, MB339, A29A).
  9. Re DCS crashes on 2nd mission: It was suggested that I disable Tacview which I did. I was then able to run 5 short instant actions missions in a row. We'll see how this goes. I have uninstalled Tacview [There is a new update to Tacview in beta testing so I will wait till that is out before re-installing]
  10. DCS Crashing on 2nd Mission Sad to say that on second set of test DCS crashed on loading of second mission. Back to troubleshooting.
  11. DCS Crashing on 2nd Mission. "May 14 8am Success [Hopefully] Completed 6 simple instant actions missions. Pre-start: Deleted all fxo and metashader files. restarted pc. loaded dcs. Reduced Clouds to LOW. Was able to complete 6 missions. After each mission, completely ended mission and went to main menu. At main menu followed Flappie's advice below and opened options and clicked 'OK'. After 6th mission exited dcs. Missions: 4x F15C takeoff A.D. persian gulf. 1x F5E free flight caucasus. 1x F5E take off caucasus. Will do further testing later." [See my main post for updat

  14. DCS Crash on 2nd Mission DCS standalone open beta 2.7. My System: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, 32GB RAM, Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT, 2x 1TB M.2 SSD cards. May as well join the party. I have been living through DCS crashed for the last 2 weeks and they do seem to start at '2nd mission crashes.' Have discussed this on discord at ED and GR and followed through on many recommendations including remove all 3rd party mods, slow repair, clean-up and some of 'Flappie's' guidance in his May 2nd post on this thread. No avail. I have sent all my crash reports to DCS, there have been 12 of
