DCS Crash during engine startup.


Recommended Posts



I encountered a crash of BlackShark (English downloaded version). This from what I can tell is a random crash as I have not yet encountered the same issue again.


Description: As the Left Engine was beginning to powerup (right engine was already running) BlackShark just quit to a Windows error stating DCS: dcs.exe - Application Error. The instruction at "0x0f459eba" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate.


I have not tried to reproduce the bug as of yet, but will endeavour to see if I can.


PC Configuration:

Processor: Intel Pentium 4 3.40E GHz

Motherboard: ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe (latest BIOS - 1024.001)


Video Card: Gainward 7800 GS with 512MB Driver: 178.24

CD/DVD : LiteOn DH-20A4P-09C 20X DVD±RW/DL/RAM

Internet Connection: ADSL 8MB

Control Devices: Saitek X45, TrackIR Pro (3 + Vector), Logitech G9 & G15

(Saitek Driver:, Software:

(TrackIR driver: 4.1 Build 36 - latest version)

(G9 Driver: 4.22.52, Setpoint: 5.00.175)

(G15 Driver:2.02.101)

Audio: Creative Audigy 2ZS Platinum Pro (latest drivers 6.00.0001.1361).

Operating System: Windows XP 32bit SP3 with all latest patches.

DirectX Version: 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)







Obviously, if I encounter the problem again or can provide any additional information I will certainly do so, and if there is any additional information that is required I will do my best to provide it as quickly as possible.

Certainly, any recommendations on which driver to try? The latest driver available from nvidia for the graphics card I have is already installed (Version 178.24, release date 15.10.200).


Should I be looking to downgrade to an earlier release?
