    Default Lots of crashes today--to the desktop

    Until today I'd logged some 40 flight hours since I began using MSFS '20 on Jan. 19, with only one CTD. But today, MSFS crashed three-four times (I didn't keep score). At first, I thought it might have something to do with the ICON A5 I test flew for the first time (and landed on, and took off from, a small lake). But it happened with a Cessna 172 and a Beechcraft Bonanza, so nothing to do with the aircraft. Once when it quit, I saw a notification from Steam alleging that the software had been updating. That didn't make sense to me, as it updates when you launch it. Nothing's changed on my PC; I haven't downloaded/installed any add-ons, and other than a Web browser and Norton 360, I don't run any other programs/applications on it. Anybody have any ideas re. why I got a case of multiple CTDs of a sudden?

    Hi Steve, I know you said you haven’t installed anything recently, but do you already have any addon sceneries installed? If so, is it crashing when you fly near / over these areas?
    Could be the Bing Maps bug if so.

    If this isn’t the case, then I’m not sure.
    There was another serious issue yesterday with Microsoft’s gaming services. Many of us were having problems with the sim losing all its settings. Not sure if it was causing CTDs though.


    Regards

    Thanks. I haven't added anything. Nada.

    Started last week, before then maybe a couple CTD's over 2 months.

    So, this would be since the latest update, then?

    For what it is worth, I have flown over 100 hours in MSFS without any crashes, until I tried to increase simulation rate to 4x or 8x. Doing that will crash the program in a few minutes on my PC. It may not be your problem, but I suspect, that in this case I need to increase RAM from 16 t0 32Gb.

    If you mean increasing the sim's frame rates, I haven't tried to change mine. I have it on "high" settings for scenery and whatnot, and the frame limit is 60 fps. Maybe I should lower it? I'd had only a couple CTDs prior to yesterday--once on approach to Monterey and once parking at San Jose. I'm wondering if something in the most recent update from Asobo might be causing my program to crash more frequently now.

    What are your settings? What aircraft are you flying? Where are you flying? All this has to do with performance related to YOUR machine. How many ghz is your processor? How many cores? I'd hate to say it, but you may have to turn down some settings on your machine that you're running MSFS on or may have to upgrade altogether to run it. Did it happen on P3D or any prior sims? If no, I suggest an upgrade
