Default General troubleshooting advice

Below is some general troubleshooting advice, if after these steps you still experience a crash please post your logs and we will try to help

All dcs.logs and crash reports help ED. Thanks

Ensure windows and any drivers are up to date.

make sure any unofficial mods are removed ( if any )

run a cleanup and repair, or if steam verify your install

Rename your dcs / dcs.openbeta folder in saved games ( keep it as a backup )

release C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS


beta C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta

example C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS.openbetabackup

restart DCS allow it to create a new one, redo your settings and test

You can move your input folder back after to save time from the renamed one.
be aware the first time you load the shaders have to be built, this can take some time on the first load.

Please also ensure your pagefile has enough room and is set correctly
