No crashes in Win 8 comp. mode - really? yes!

At first I couldn't believe it and thought: what a crazy idea, the craziest of them all.


In addition to 2.5.6. stable I have a second 1TB SSD with 2.7.0.5659 installed, as test system - which had multiple crashes, regardless of applying any

of the multiple cure recommendations. 

Just for fun (what I thought initially) I recently started 2.7. in W8 comp. mode (64 bit, admin). I tried all possible "painful" startup options without implementing any of the many recommendations. Success . . . . no single crash for 2 days so far. 


Now I'm not only speechless but wondering what's going on here.
Everyone from DCS strongly recommends installing the very latest updates for Win 10 and relevant graphics drivers, and then that.

 

I don't know what else to do but I think it is worth investigating this "miracle" further.

I would ask myself: What is different in W8 to W10 considering what is different from 2.5.6. to 2.7.xxxx

 

EDIT: Please note: The "I'm running DCS in W8 / W7 comp. mode" idea is not mine. It has been reported here by various members.

I involuntarily switched to W10 to use W7 again!

Good Job wernst!

It works for me.

 

Thanks 🤠

 

Guys you need to try wernst's idea. Tried many other ideas for crashes and they didn't work. I've had no crashes since using Win8 compatibility mode in Win10! I was crashing all the time when entering the second mission.

Cheers

The first idea was probably given to the user Tunuki44, on the contrary the user Wernst was afraid to switch the mode until the last moment.

Yes, I got the tip from tunuki44 in the other thread and it works for me as well. For five days now, no crash. Usually since 2.7 I had one every few reloads...

That's what amazes me. Obviously, by jumping from version 2.5.6. to version 2.7. elementary changes are made that should only work with latest W10. That was the plan.

Ironically, 2.7 works now only crash free when playing DCS in W8 or W7 comp. mode. Crazy DCS world. 

I just hope the developers aren't as clueless as I am right now - I bet they are not.

An unnecessarily hurried step, but fortunately the compatibility mode works reliably.
