Can this cause Freezing


Shortcut

Recommended Posts

I followed General troubleshooting advice to try and stop the freezing but my Saved Games is located inC:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS not in C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta. I renamed DCS.openbeta restarted DCS 2.5 and it did not recreate a new folder when renamed C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS A new folder was created.

Can the cause a problem or freezing?

I’m still trying to fix the freezing problem and the above did not help. I sure hope DCS is working on the Freezing issue.:(

Hi

 

Strange, if you are running the open beta it should create the DCS.openbeta folder.

 

Try a cleanup and repair and then restart DCS

 

also please let us know your system specification.

 

Let us know how you get on, thanks

Before I deleted the saved games DCS folder I did an update and repair form the CMD. When I updated to 2.5 I did 1.58 first. As fo now 2.5 is still freezing.

I have DCS on G: Drive which is an 512gb Adata SSD, C: Drive is an 256gb Samsung 840 SSD

 

 

Maybe after I get the 8700K system up and running next Monday I should do a complete reinstall of DCS being I need to reinstall windows 10.

If you add your dcs.logs and your autoupdate_log.txt we can take a look to see if anything is unusual with your install

I did another Update and Repair from the CMD. It seems the DCS is not creating the log files or the autoupdate_log.txt in C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS\logs or in C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\logs.

 

 

Any Ideas?

the autoupdate_log.txt is in your dcs root location.

 

your dcs.log is in the saved games folder

 

Is DCS starting up at all, do you see a splash screen?

 

If you are not seeing anything it maybe best to wipe and start over

DCS is loading and I can fly missions but it can freeze at any time. Another thing I’ve noticed that C: drive Program Files\Eagle Dynamics has nothing in it. Is there away to do an complete reinstall and save my aircraft and Navada or will need to download them to?

If you are currently playing we need to work out what is going on, and we need the dcs.log for that. Can you give me the log from any dcs in your saved games folder?

 

example C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Logs

 

Also do you know where your DCS is installed on your machine?

If C: drive Program Files\Eagle Dynamics is empty, you'll need to find out where the install is then. You should be able to right-click on your DCS Shortcut, Shortcut, (pun intended) and get the folder location of the install. Then you would be able to get that log for Bignewy.

Hi

 

Your install is here

 

G:\DCS World 2.5\DCS World\DCS World\bin\DCS_updater.exe

 

try a cleanup and repair, guide in my signature.

 

Just wondering if you have somehow installed it on top of another dcs install?

 

If you are having no luck and you have the bandwidth I would recommend deleting everything and doing a fresh install

Finished new build wiped C: Drive deactivated all my DCS addons deleted DCS folders. Did a clean install of windows 10 and all up to date drivers, downloaded DCS 2.5 and all my addons.

 

 

Here’s what I got running DCS 2.5 at 2560 X 1440 over 150 FPS and no freezing nice and smooth CPU temp varies between low 60’s C and low 70’s C.

 

 

Running 3 monitors at 7680 X 1440 60+ FPS that’s over 20 FPS pickup over previous system. Now the bad part DCS freezes within 5 to 10 minutes with sound and TrackIr 5 still working Ctrl – Alt Delete to get out.

 

 

What I did notice prior to freezing my CPU temp were between 60C and 70C when DCS froze up CPU temp spiked up to 80 C I don’t know if that’s any help to DCS. Running 3 monitors is sooo much nicer than a single monitor, I sure hope the get it figured out soon.
