CommandT crashes

Hi folks, so my DCS crashes A LOT after 2.7 came out. Mostly when you try to load a flight for the second time after loading the game. With the AV-8B it crashes 100% of the time when you try to either reload a flight or jump out and back in for a second flight. It's extremely frustrating. Anyone else in the same boat?

Last week's most recent patch helped me a bit... I am still having some crashes, but prior to the most recent patch I was crashing once every 2 or 3 mission loads.

Nope, not just you...even worse with the latest patch.  Crashes on game start, 2nd mission load, mission exit, etc.  I spend more time now crashing and restarting than flying.

 

47 days now with no fix.

Please post your logs so we can look for clues. 

 

People if you have no information or data to share regarding the crash it really isnt helpful in the crash reports

 

thanks

Should we be posting crash logs here, or is sending the crash report to ED after a crash enough?

Auto posting helps a lot, the data base can see patterns, if you are posting here on the forum about a crash always attach a log, without it we can not check it here.

Try enabling "windows 8 compatibility mode" for the dcs.exe in the /bin folder.

It helped not all but at least a few people with that issue (including me - no problems at all since then).

Trying doesn't hurt.

 Only downside seem to be slightly longer loading times.

Same here CommandT but I mostly only get it in the Tomcat after mission complete and then when I hit Fly Again , every single time. Your not alone and I bet that’s frustrating especially making videos.

By "logs" you mean when a little pop up window asks "Send crash report" and you can add comments? Whenever possible I do that but half the time DCS crashes in such a way that this window is unresponsive, and neither is the main DCS window. But otherwise I always send the crash report. For the Harrier at the moment it crashes 100% of the time when quitting a flight, and about 80% of the time when you "quit to desktop".

How do I do that in the bin folder?

right click on the dcs.exe and check the box under the compatibility menu.

make sure, once you're there, that "fullscreen optimization" is deactivated and high-dpi scaling is forced "by application".

The terms may be slightly different, since I'm translating from a non-english windows 10 installation, but you should see what I mean.

 

Windows has some "optimizations" implemented which are meant to make programms run better, but most of the time the actual programms has those optimizations build in themselves and often better. As I said - a general rule of thumb, you want windows 10 to interfere with your applications as little as possible! That includes de(!)activating game mode (search in settings).

 

When you have stability issues, you should also, by default, reduce background applications as much as possible. (obviously you need some, like TrackIR, Discord perhaps, Afterburner and so on - those don't seem to cause issues, though).

 

Another Tip if(!) you experience problems of any kind (dcs or other) - get rid of any third party anti-virus/malware. Windows defender is a reasonable solution today and don't use as much resources as a lot of the others do.

 

Disclaimer: Some of those tips are of course a matter of personal experience and opinion. I am not a complete noob and know pretty much why those recommendations should work and how, but I won't engage in any discussion about it. None of them hurts and can be rolled back easily - so I would give it a try.

 

EDIT: If you have no more issues after todays patch the windows 8 compatibility mode is of course no longer of use.
