Asobo completely quiet about these "CTD"!

I think the phrase “species of ducks” is more accurate. There is so much to communicate about with SU5 and the last couple of years as a whole.

Pretty much accurate description of the bugs since release and now with SU5.
Good luck getting those duckers in a row.

That’s exactly where mine is crashing, click fly Boom! desktop.

Every one down at ASOBO has probably been working a year straight without a vacation to get this out on Xbox. They were probably promised some time off and a bonus when this thing was done. I can roll with that provided in the next few weeks they get chained to there desk to get this thing fixed :wink:

Concerned that according to the latest forum update that the CTDs “will be addressed in several fixes in WU6”…

There are probably a few issues I am guessing which could cause CTDs.

It might conceivably take a bit of time to eradicate all of them I suppose.

What are you talking about?

Assessing the situation and already coming up with conrete hotfixes just after one week after release - for a GAME! Now those developers take their job really seriously, I‘d say.

I had the same problem. Everything was OK with the previousl version. I then checked my graphic card drivers and realised that there were more up to date versions. Downloaded the latest version and all OK now. The graphics are now amazing and I suppose the old drivers couldn’t handle it. Hope this helps

Nvidia driver?

OC or no OC, CTD still happens.

No afraid not, been there done all the usual.

They created such a huge hype about launching the simulator on the XBOX and didn’t sufficiently test the code before. I’m having constant CTDs after the last “hotfix” . Hope they fix this mess soon. When the simulator randomly shuts down on a long flight it’s a really bad thing.

They’ve updated the development FBW Airbus. According to the logs a CTD was fixed.

Overhere it’s running now okay on a higher power profile, so I guess that worked out.

I agree, that is a really bad thing… that I and every other AMD card user has been experiencing ever since VR support was launched. Then SU5 came and all our CTD’s went away like a long, bad nightmare… for one week. Their “hotfix” for all the negative issues experienced by those who’d been enjoying the sim since launch basically broke the sim completely for me, and now it won’t even launch to the first splash screen!

But by all means, let’s prioritize all of the lesser issues being suffered by Nvidia users first before fixing AMD’s users inability to even launch the sim at all.

Good to hear. I’m away for the weekend so haven’t been able to try the hotfix or the updated FBW yet.

When they update 20 GBs of data, seems reasonable that there will be bugs.

The majority of the sim’s size consists of textures. The actual logic doesn’t take much space. So file size doesn’t say much about the amount and severity of bugs.

Also a 20GB download doesn’t mean they actually changed 20GB of the data, it could also mean they changed 1kb in a 20GB package.

The point for me is if they give us a sim update every 2 months, and the bugs resulting from those updates take more than 2 months to fix, there will only be more bugs after each update. They should start to push out quality of life updates without changing much core functionality and bring stability to the platform…

I’ve been a software engineer for a long time. Yes, there can be defects and bugs, and as customers we certainly have to allow for them and understrand when one or two sneak into a release. And we don’t know the office or business politics going on there - who knows what kinds of pressures and influences they are subjected to? I can understand and sympathize.

However, I am also experiencing weird (bad weird) behavior, almost as if the sim has gone partially insane. Aside from the numerous CTDs I get at random points, it does things like putting me on a runway I did not request. If I start at a gate and get the engines running (or start that way), and access the options menu, when I come back, the engines are shutting down, and they completely refuse to start again. These are just examples that make the sim essentially unusable for now.

Since it’s more of an online service than a standalone app, where everyone is put on the same version whether they want it or not, they have additional responsibilities to ensure that the service and client are stable and can at least perform their primary functionality correctly, since issues can affect everyone - no option to revert to a previous version. Without blaming any particular individual or class of employee (devs, QA, DevOps, product managers, etc.), they do need to at least do a post mortem on this release and find out what went so wrong, and take steps to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Let’s hope that they do (or did) just that.

Until then, I will mess around with P3Dv4 and X-Plane again, just to keep my skills in practice. Hopefully I (and the rest of us) will be able to get back to MSFS again soon.

P.S. If Asobo or any 3rd party developers/partners are listening, I have also put off any further purchases of add-ons for MSFS until things are fixed. Why spend the cash on things you can’t use?
