No one else having constant crash at the end of Cargo mission, close to the ship?

Is this still recurring for you?

Are you on stable or openbeta (and which versions)?

Do you have any mods? any edits made to the mission?

Yeah, tried before yesterday (still before SC was out), CTD pretty close to the ship homebound, again and again. Edit no (never ever opened ME). Mods some, but I think irrelevant to F-18, but you never know:

OvGME activated:
A-10C clicks fixed
Bankler Case I recovery 5.2
Gun dispersion tweak
JTAC coordinates DMS 2.5.6
Tacca's NVG mod

I can try without them, if you wish, but I don't think any of them interfering. Opinion? I didn't have the patience to wait until any crash log generated, I just Ctrl Alt Del'd out to Task Manager and killed DCS.


Oh, btw I use to put up TGP in centerline discarding center tank. Can this be maybe causing something?

Always a chance that the mods cause something wrong here. Although there are no lua scripts or anything funky in my missions that should interfere. Would be helpful if you wouldn't mind trying a playthrough without these mods and let me know if that solves it.



Do you have any tacviews of this issue? It would be helpful for me to try and look at these.


If no tacviews - can you give me as much detail on exactly where you are when this happens? Is it a certain distance from the carrier, or specific time, or location etc?


I can't imagine the TGP would cause any issue - again nothing in the mission that should even recognise that you have changed the loadouts.

Shoot ! I found actually 3 CARGO files, but TacView can not open exactly those two files, which ended up crashing. Any other files before or after those is a go. Probably TacView couldn't even finish or close recording properly due to the very crash? The 3rd is when I aborted mid mission, after realizing, that I can drop bombs in AUTO also after release cue has marched down through the VV. (Bug reported of course.) So it looks like no TacView eigther. Or can you hack .acmi files maybe?

Yes I've come across tacview being unable to open files after a crash. Don't know of any workarounds I'm afraid.



So - if you can give me as much extra detail as you can, I can look into this from my side.



In the meantime, please do give it a try without your mods as they are the most likely source of issue right now?

Will try without mod, and record as many circumstances as I can.
