Crash on almost every quit

Recommended Posts

Today I actually got a bluescreen after fighting a MiG in the F-86 after a long fight. I think it might be a RAM problem because it never happened again, provided that I closed everything before playing.

 

Now, however, I'm still dealing with a crash after almost each mission when I hit quit. I have to let my computer whine down until I hear its cooling fans at a lower RPM before I can even think of quitting.

 

Specs are as follows: AMD A8-3870 APU w/ Radeon HD graphics (2 CPUs), 3.0 GHz processor, 8.192 GB of RAM, Windows 7 64-bit.

 

Is there anything I can do before I go out and buy more RAM? If this is unusual for those who have 8GB of RAM, I'd like to find a solution.

 

Thanks!

Hi SgtPappy,

 

if you can attach your logs C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS\Logs it would be helpful

 

and what graphics card are you running, is it a laptop you are playing on?

Sounds like a heat issue for sure. Have u tracked that as u use the software? Blowing out the PC with compressed air would do if so. I take mine apart once year to avoid this and clean the GPU after taking it apart.

Thank you for your help, guys.

 

The logs are attached here. If you want me to attach them in some other format, let me know. I think one of those might be the bluescreen, but I'm not sure. Too many crashes yesterday.

 

BIGNEWY, I'm running with a stock NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560.

 

Atalia, I haven't really tracked the heating problem, but it is getting rather dusty, so I'll clean it out this week.

 

EDIT: I didn't realize attaching the files actually gave me an upload error. Sorry but I don't know how to attach those files. They won't upload and I can't open them with notepad.

I cleaned out the computer of dust and it didn't help. Sometimes when I hit quit (even after letting the fans rev down), the game will crash after loading 10% of the brief screen each and every time.

 

EDIT: It turns out the steam install is perfectly fine, but the standalone screws up. I have all my newest planes on the standalone though. :(

go to

 

 

C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS\Logs

 

right click on the logs folder and send to / compressed (zipped) folder

 

then on the forum use the manage attachments when you post and attach the zip folder you created.

I attached 3 crash logs here.

 

And yes, the steam version and the standalone are the same. I'm starting to think however that the updates caused some glitches because I actually play the standalone from steam (i.e. I have both a steam version and a shortcut on steam for the standalone) so that I can communicate without Alt+Tabbing while still being able to play my standalone modules.

 

I removed the standalone from steam and put it back and so far, no crashes.

you mean the non-steam version correct, yes I experience that as well its because its not a executable compatible steam launcher version.
