Can't load into game

:wave: Thank you using the Bug section, using templates provided will greatly help the team reproducing the issue and ease the process of fixing it.

Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it?


Brief description of the issue:

While loading the game is crashing straight to desktop either prior to entering the main main or just after entering the main menu.

Neither my RAM nor my CPU are maxed out prior to my crash. However, my GPU maxes to 100% just prior to the crash. The GPU never reaches over 70C.

I am on the latest nVidia drivers, freshly installed after a driver wipe, and the current version of Win10. I have replicated the issue on the windows XBox app and the Steam version. I have tried with only my mouse and keyboard connected to USB, I have tried with WiFi disabled, I have tried with the game ran as admin. None of the solutions in the CTD guide have worked.

some other infos are missing. You have functionality before? You set some addons? Did you tried lower amount of your ram if its possible? Pls say more here to have better support.

I has been working prior, I have 0 addons. I can try to allocate less ram but that is a hardware thing.

You know,

there are thousands of reasons in your case, really only read some similar topics but I expect hw test for first.

Quite a difficult one this.

Maybe try to launch it again without any of your usb controllers connected and see if they are the problem?

Hi @Scatoogle339,
Welcome to the forums!

I’ve moved your topic into Community Support > CTD Help.

The bug reporting category is for confirmed bugs that can be replicated by others.

I hope this gets resolved for you.

try the usually things, like clear rolling cache, use -FastLaunch, AV disabled, limiting fps in nvidia controll center, check conflicting applications, check system time, check us lang pack is installed, etc…

If nothing helps we need bit more informations… when the issue starts, how you re-install msfs after the mentioned win10 wipe, the message from windows event log, etc… just that we can get an idea :wink:

Additional there are existing FAQs, e.g.

EDIT: in case you use Razer software, we have also some topics
