Just to chime in on this, don’t know if this is the main thread regarding this issue, if not, feel free to point me in the right direction.
I was able to fly (in VR) for great lengths of time before Update 5.
At first i was blown away by the performance increase of the last update, i kept my settings the same as before but i would get consistently smoother performance. Before i had the chance to increase my settings i experienced a series of freezes, eventually leading to a freeze and a CTD. This ranged from microstutters where i said to myself ‘i can live with this occasionaly’ to ‘i thing the pc has crashed’ (it didn’t, Windows was still responsive). During these freezes i saw a spike in CPU and the GPU dropped to 0% usage.
I tried moving from Virtual Desktop (i have a Quest 2) to the native Oculus Link. Both systems show the same behaviour.
I have an empty community folder, as i always do before an update.
Latest NVidia drivers.
GPU: RTX 3070
OS: Windows 10, latest updates
HDD or SSD: NVME SSD for OS and separate NVME SSD for FS2020
No issues with CTD before Update 5, no issues in other games.
I will try to disable AI Traffic and ATC tonight as mentioned earlier. I will also try to check if i have the FBW A320 installed, if so, i will uninstall it to see if that helps.
In the meantime any and all suggestions are welcome, I am so happy with the performance now, if only i could actually fly for more than a couple of minutes…
