For what it’s worth, I had 2 issues causing CTD’s, and got that solved now.
First one was a mod that uses that other maps provider. Even after uninstall, it keeps two lines of code that manually have to be removed (cant find the link, it must be on the forums somewhere).|
Second one was the Nvidia update, that caused ctd’s as well. Rolled back to previous one and now all is ok (for now…)
On a side note, I have to keep live traffic switched to off, otherwise it’s a CTD when I press the V key.
I understand not wanting to spend another penny until they get these issues fixed. 100% with you and am participating in the Marketplace boycott at the moment. Now I have been extremely lucky with very few CTD. I’ve had maybe 4 or 5 the whole year and a half so far. Most of those were caused by me changing usb controllers or something else.
CTD is just one reason to boycott the marketplace. I started my boycott when many of us came to the realization that the marketplace was a hot mess with extremely slow approvals, updates and patches. I then continued my boycott as I keep having bandwidth issues with photogrammetry and satellite data not loading in, especially during peak traffic times like the weekend. Would love nothing more than to spend hard-earned money here in the marketplace to help contribute to the on-going financial success of this platform but until they can get these issues fixed, they won’t get any. I hope others will do the same. If not for yourself because you don’t have issues do it for your fellow simmers. Microsobo needs to feel the pain of lower marketplace sales to encourage them to get these fixes to the platform. They have no incentive to fix anything if people keep purchasing from the MP.
Just stop purchasing from the marketplace until the issues are addresses. I’m talking about all of the issues, not just the ones directly related to the performance of the software. Same thing happens to me all the time.
Many thanks for your detailed and above all helpful no nonsense post. Members like you are a credit to this community. Thank you.
From myside I would of never thought to look at the drivers. I have for as long as I can remember never had a GPU driver cause an issue, maybe back in the DX5 days or when I had an NVIDIA Riva TNT 2 and that’s going back some lol. So whilst I am frustrated I apologise for blaming the sim, but MS/Asobo should really make that a sticky.
Update, Setting the Sim to DirectX 12 seems to now allow me to load at the airports that were all working before the driver update. This is crazy. I am worried however I will now have a CTD mid flight which is what I despise the most.
