Here we go;
  • This bug is actually very rare, despite this long thread. E.g.; none of our 30+ internal testers can reproduce it, nor can anyone in the development team.
  • There is an issue with ED's DRM that basically means that we don't get any crashlogs from CTDs (hence why the game just "disappears"). This is an absolutely critical issue and we've raised it with them. Without a crashlog, we don't even have any idea where to begin looking.
  • Predicated on point two, we're trying to nail this down and fix it. We've even asked testers to just focus on this issue and try to get us a crashdump to no avail. We may get in touch with one of you directly soon to try and nail this down using alternate, DRM-free binaries.

In summary, we're working on it and we'll be taking drastic measures shortly.

I think we'll all be willing to help fix this.

Don't think it is such a very rare problem and shouldn't be so hard to reproduce. Just take the first mission of the "Operation Persian Gauntlet - Jane's F-15 Iran Campaign Reimagined (F-14B)" campaign and it happens 4 out of 5 times trying to lock/shoot down the helicopters (single player, no multiplayer needed), at least for me and other people reporting this problem with this mission.



Best regards, Marcel

Thank you, I will try to see if I can get a crash dump with this mission, of course, since this has been an issue particular to this mission of this campaign from the get go, it might be mission and not F-14 related, but it is a good idea an worth a try.

Thanks for replying HeatBlur guys. Good to know you're onto it still. As I have previously also posted, if there's anything we that are having these CTD's can do to aid you in pinpointing the issue(s) I'm sure all of us would assist in any way we can.

Hearing about the CTDs a lot on Blueflagersian Gulf.
I have it very rare myself. A guy in our squad does have it like every day when he flies the cat - he flies the aircraft a bit more agressive than I do.
On Blueflag it seems like if you have 5 people flying the cat, some with RIO, some with Jester, 1 out of 5 will see a CTD.

Hope that this issue finally can be pinpointed and resolved. I have pretty much left the F-14B parked as I don’t want to worry about getting CTD during a SP mission or in multiplayer.

I want to thank huppel for suggesting that mission, and everyone for reporting their crashes. I've finally managed to trigger a CTD using that mission, and it's probably the weirdest DCS crash I've ever seen. It's a mix of a very specific avionics setup, plus the environment, plus some static objects in the vicinity of the aircraft. But the key was some partially initialized static objects - like the oil rigs, gas stations, etc. That's why some of you experienced those crashes, while the other didn't - it was very mission specific.

So at least one source of the CTDs is fixed. I can't guarantee that it was the only reason of the CTDs you got, but I can say that at least this one is going to be fixed for you on Wednesday.
