Since 22.214.171.124, I’m experiencing extended pausing in the game. Just randomly stops responding. Task manager will show flightsimulator.exe as “not responding” The pause can last anywhere from a few seconds up to a minute. They can happen anywhere. I’ve had it happen in the menus and in the sim.
It happens with an empty community folder with the same frequency as if I have all my mods.
Don’t remember seeing this after SU nor after the first hotfix. It started happening after 126.96.36.199.
I’ve experienced extended stutters of a few seconds prior to this version, but never more. Now it can last up to a minute or so before continuing on just normally as if nothing happened. Until it happens again later on…
Update and hotfixes installed. Sim running well with the exception of two freezes experienced during a 200 mile flight tonight both occurring when the VFR map was clicked. Freeze lasted several minutes. The sim didn’t crash to the desktop. Flight resumed normally after the freeze.
Other than this all seems better on my system.
Still absolutely HATE the log book interruption during engine shutdown after parking. From a pilot’s standpoint this is a REAL immersion killer.
I see it’s on the wish list to be addressed. Hope it’s soon !
So yeah, starting today it’s not always recovering after the pauses. Several times now I’ve just left it, and it’s never come back. Just now, I left it for almost 20 minutes. Never recovered and I had to end the process.
Although I’m noticing via Resource Monitor that shortly before this happens, it drops all its connections to online services. Then the freeze happens. Not sure if it’s an imminent freeze causeing it to lose connection, or if it loses connection and then the sim freezes.
@Crunchmeister71 hey mate. I get these long pauses as well. Really frustrating. I have a 3080 with 64GB RAM and the sim is ultra smooth, good FPS, no issues at all. Then all of a sudden, a pause that can be sometimes 10-30 seconds. Maybe 10% of the time it CTDs, though more often it just continues flying afterwards. I also notice the task manager has ‘not responding’ with the msfs.exe.
I haven’t experienced this in some time now, but based on my past observations and seeing how many are having issues with the MSFS online services as of late (even though Microsobo are claiming the issues are fixed), I would suspect it’s related.
It’s got nothing to do with WiFi. It’s server side issues. I’m hardwired. 10 Gbit LAN backbone in my house to a1 Gbit fibre connection. I have issues with MSFS servers all the time. Never have an issue with anything else.
I have also a huge problem with my Dell Alienware i7 10700F 16GB Memory and NVIDIA 2060 Super 8GB card. Before the last update, the Sim was working normally. Now it takes 15-20 min to get to the menu where it takes 10 seconds to show what you have clicked earlier and it might become unresponsive and then have to kill the task. Can not navigate, can not play. I thought that there must be something with the installation and I reinstall it from scratch. Updated NVIDIA drivers. Nothing has changed. Other games are working without any issue. The only difference that I can note is that I have upgraded the PC to Windows 11. Is there anyone else having the same issue?
No answers and Microsoft are quite happy to leave users helping each other rather than looking after their customers. This is not a process that I have the time or patience for.
I’ve been trying by email to ask for confirmation that this issue is being worked on and get nothing.
I’ve not been able to play the game for about 3 months now and I’m beyond impatient now.
I’ve requested a refund for the game since the bug means I’m not able to play the game, which was declined due to purchasing more than 30 days ago.
When I requested information on their complaints policy as having a bug exist for three months with no support and denying to take responsibility of and refund on it is not acceptable.
I was given the address of the Digital Complaints commission for the EU. I’m not a EU resident - so safe to say that I’m beyond impatient, have zero faith in this issue being fixed and am extremely angry with Microsoft
What is causing this bug? I bet someone on here can direct me to an answer better than the multibillion dollar corporation Microsoft.
Here is a video of the issue which renders this game completely unplayable and a giant waste of my money and my time as well as my frustration.
