Freezing/Not Responding after beginning flight

Hi, I am not sure if this is the correct category but here goes. Every time I try to begin a flight, flight sim completely stops responding to any controls or mouse clicks. The music continues to play but all visuals stop. This occurs no matter the game mode and happens as soon as I click the ‘Fly’ button.

I have so far completely reinstalled the game but the issue continues to occur. All drivers are up to date. I have a Ryzen 3700x and RTX 3070. The issue began about a month and a half ago.


I have a similar problem. Once airborne the aircraft stops responding to all controls and goes around in circles. Only just started to happen.

I am new to this forum, so not sure whether it will automatically put my I.D. at top, or not.

you changed somewhat else at your system in that time ?

have you mods installed ?

Please give more infos about your system specs.

Nothing in my system changed between the game working and not working.
I have no mods installed.
Im not sure what other specs you are looking for? I have 32GB of RAM and am running the latest version of windows 10.

exactly this was my interesst :slight_smile: … but this is fine…

You can try the standart “guess” at first… delete rolling cache file.


What are your graphics-settings ? ( window mode or fullscreen ? )

Also already tried to change the game settings to e.g low ( just for a test ) ?

Have you some kind of special usb devices ?

Already checked windows event log for possible existing errors, warns ?

It is hard to find out , therefore we need all infos you can give us :slight_smile:
