DCS freeze at GBU-12 release with LTD/R armed


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I was making a flight in MP with someone to teach them a bit about A/G basics in the Hornet. When he tried to drop a GBU-12 on a target (Mode AUTO, EFUZ INST, DRAG FF, Code 1682), he had his LTD/R armed while I didn't. He immediately froze when he reached the drop cue. I didn't (probably because I had my LTD/R on SAFE) and continued. Later on, I dropped a GBU-12 on a different target (same parameters as before, but code 1788), this time with LTD/R on ARM so I could lase it myself. When the bomb was about to drop, my game immediately froze with no hope of recovery. I had to force-quit it.

 

Tracks and crash logs of both my wingman and I are linked here. We were both running the latest OB (2.5.6.61527).

Hi, 

 

thank you for the data, sadly the track replays would not play correctly for me. 

 

I have tried to reproduce myself but have been unable so far. 

 

Please ensure you have done a cleanup and repair or verify if steam, if you continue to get the freeze please add the log and track again I will be happy to recheck. 

 

thank you

I also had the same problem.  When I pickled the GBU-12, I immediately got a freeze (TV/Monitor icon with the words "waiting").  I posted this issue on another thread with my DCS.log.  It was reviewed, but they could not see anything that would cause this issue.

 

For reference, i was hosting the mission with two other players.

Ah, it's "back" and someone else got this bug....

 

So, this was something which drove a few guys of my squadron (including myself) crazy - because we never were able to reproduce it.

We tried to do a DCS-repair, for some this solved the issue.

 

Basically we tested a few things and WE could use as workaround to load a SINGLE GBU instead of a dual-rack mounted one.

After we did this we could rearm using dual-racks and everything was fine.

We were never able to really nail it down to create a bug report because it was gone for us after a patch (I don't know which one, sorry).

 

Also it worked always correctly using a Hot-Hornet instead of a cold start - using a cold one we needed to load single GBUs first.

 

I highly recommend to do a DCS-Repair and check it again.

Also check if this happens on a specific map (for me, it only happened on Caucasus, every other map was fine).

 

The test scenarios for us were

- cold and hot start machines

- single and dual rack GBUs

- different maps

- Single and Multiplayer (We only encountered it in MP, not in SP)

 

But again, we were not really able to reproduce it correctly 😕 Thought it was fixed.

 

Update: I was remembered it was not only Caucasus, it happened to someone else on Persian Gulf.

Ive spent a good amount of time today trying to reproduce this, if anyone does experience this with a relatively short time period please check your appdata folder for the "lastmissiontrack.trk" we may get lucky 

 

example C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\DCS.openbeta

I am experiencing the exact same thing: total dcs freeze at the very moment I press the pickle button to release a GBU-12. I have not run a lot of tests, but so far this happened to me 3 times (and seems reproduceable) on a dedicated server, on 2 different missions, Syria map. I had the double rack GBU-12 too. I provided my log@Flappie in another thread on this matter, but there's nothing of interest (actually, DCS does not crash, it just hangs as if it was waiting  for something, and ctrl alt del is the  only way out).

@BIGNEWY I don't understand what you're asking for in your here above post ?

edit: i was running the stable version

if someone has a freeze or crash the above location may still contain the last track replay from the event, not always, but it's worth checking to get more clues. 

 

thanks

Another test yesterday: dedicated server, Syria map, stable version, I took off with just 2 times one GBU-12 on the outer pylons (no double rack), problem happened (seems to be quite reproduceable as far as I am concerned).

This definitely started happening only after GBU-24 was introduced and there is no rhyme or reason and hence it's, so far, irreproducible.

In the other thread, I posted a track and a tacview with some more details of it happening to two pilots on PG, within minutes of one another:

 

We are experiencing way more crashes still when releasing bombs, as well as during setting their parameters using the UFC OSB - this applies to other bombs, not just LGBs, but can be unrelated. I saw two patch note changelogs mentioning a line that sounds like an attempt to fix this, but it still happens on occasion.

Please remove all unofficial mods ( if any ) run a full cleanup and repair. 

 

if you still get the issues attach your dcs log and if possible a track replay. 

 

It is the only way we will be able to investigate this more, as we are unable to reproduce

 

Thank you

Just happened across this thread! This happened to me at the weekend, just thought it was a random crash. F18, Syria, Cold and dark, Double gbu-12 outer pylons, LTD/R armed, game froze approx 1/2 second after releasing the first bomb. I didn't get a track, it was after a while of night flying so track would have been too long anyway. I've played DCS since so may have overwritten log files. I'll try to reproduce if its an actual bug but there won't be a trackfile if it actually freezes.....
