Repeated CTD's &

Gday buddy…I’m not sure how much you have in your Community Folder and I like you have had CTD heaps of times since the sims first release…I came from FSX is I feel your pain. I have separate master folder which I place all my extras B787 mod, B777 mod, Airfields etc and as the sim gets its update I copy and paste my master to my community. Cheers Tricky

Yes - I moved everything out before the update and only put back in mods that have SU5 compatible. I wonder if there is a vpilot issue - many of my CTDs happen flying Vatsim, which of course makes them even more aggravating!

The curse of this sim is NOT CTD it is however ASOBO.

Can’t do this anymore. I’ll have to wait, sim is broken to a point it is useless. We made a poll and 95% of our users reported regular CTDs (at least once every hour).


I feel your pain.

I just don’t understand how many users like myself do not
have CTDs and FS2020 is okay.

Someone at ASOBO should be able to determine this easily and quickly.

It would not take a Rocket Scientist.

I had zero issues with CDTs until yesterday. I played for about four hours (PC), took a break, and tried to log back in and now I cannot get past the loading screen for a flight. I’ve tried every fix found in the forums, clean install, etc. and still no change.



Because bugs don’t work like the many people that automatically go around saying it’s user error and their machines are a mess, believe. There are too many variables that your PC can be fine but bugs can hit one system but not another. The fault is in the software, Asobo broke many things, AGAIN, and seems like they are trying to beat each previous update on how many issues they can add, it’s just some people have been lucky that not everything lined up to cause the bugs to activate, or some are too oblivious to the issues or don’t use said features. Can’t blame users and their PC’s though when the thing is crashing on console too.

Not that it’s mods causing these CTD’s, but do you really copy and paste the files back and forth every update? If so I highly recommend Addons Linker on No need to move files with that, you put and organise your mods in folders anywhere you like and it adds links to them in your Community folder. Saves time and wear and tear on your drives and easier to narrow down a problematic mod.


Been getting repeated CTD since SU5 and it’s ■■■■■■■ me off, I spent $160 AUD on this game I didn’t pay for it to be a beta version

Well , seems using Full screen mode instead of Windowed make it stable for me.
Fying since more than 15minutes now in full screen, while less then 5 minutes in windowed mode.

Hope the tip will work for you as well.

Edit : now more than one hour flight time …still no CTD :slight_smile:

Iv been having the same issue for 2 days… I removed my OC (MSI Afterburner) and reinstalled the sim and it seems to be fixed… it looks like to me the update has a bug relating to over clocking

LOL… the bug is the overclocking. It is not called without any reason “OVER …”

Even with the clock set to vanilla the crashes still happened… I uninstalled msi and reinstalled the sim and it works fine

yes… some version of MSI A… ( more exact the containing Riva ) cause also issues.

Take this with a pinch of salt and file it under ‘old wives tales’ if you will but after reading this post

and enabling this option I’ve not had a single CTD in two days of heavy sim usage.


FWIW, I had some anomalies and multiple CTDs after SimUpdate 5, but hotfix cured most. As I’ve posted elsewhere, I have a very mid-range system (i5-9600, GTX 1060, 32GB RAM), and am frankly thrilled with the current performance level.

Now if someone could send me a profile for the old MS Force Feedback 2 Joystick, that would be great!

CTD when selecting FBW A320.

Funny thing… I just logged in and went to full screen (I had already tried this) and it loaded two flights. Great news-first access in a flight in two days!

To test it, I shut the FS2020, restarted, and now it crashes again.

Partial win!
