I have a consistant Crash to Desktop when zooming into the world map. Happens 100% of the time, if i zoom in, and pan around the sound first starts to corrupt and jitter, and then it crashes back to the desktop.
No community addons, no SIMCONNECT apps running, Seems like a bug with Maps
Still happening with the Hotfix (build 1.18.14)
I have used NVidia Screen Recorder to actually record two examples of this happening and done ont he hotfix version, which I have included here. First one occurs pretty rapidly, the second takes a bit longer, but the crash ALLWAYS happens.
Still happening with the latest hotfix (126.96.36.199) I am going to try and clean re-install windows and with minimum software then see if the issue still exists.
I have completely blanked out my Windows system, and re-installed windows, and with a minimal install of windows (all updates, only steam, firefox, and chrome, and using all default drivers apart from nvidia), then after I re-installed MSFS from steam, and installed ONLY the world updates, no other third party marketplace items, and so far there has been no crashes on the map screen. Note prior to re-installing windows/msfs i had it in a similar state but DID get crashes.
I am going to slowly and carefully re-install my add ons, first via marketplace, and then other addons, as well as othger drivers, by Services for linux, and other applications, and continue my investigations.
I am not marking it as solved, as up until I installed SU5, the sim was remarkably stable, which leads be to believe, either the installation got corrupted during SU5 install (possible, due to the constant issues trying to install the update due to demand), or some marketplace/third party content is causing crashes. As I am seeing an xbox user also seeing similar crashes(see bellow), I will slowing focus on marketplace items.
