[CLOSED]Consistent crash in same mission


Recommended Posts

Hi. I've created a mission which I have attached. When I try and run the mission, the game crashes after about 11 min (in-game time), and so does the launcher (launcher.exe) that starts up after I've closed dcs.exe due to the crash.


I've done it several times. Always the same behaviour.


First crash (dcs.exe):

Faulting application name: dcs.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x51f13011

Faulting module name: unknown, version:, time stamp: 0x00000000

Exception code: 0xc0000005

Faulting module path: unknown

Second crash (launcher.exe):

Faulting application name: Launcher.exe_DCS, version:, time stamp: 0x51ee7669

Faulting module name: Effects.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x51ee76f3

Exception code: 0xc0000005

Just ran the mission, in a bit of unusual way though.

Launched the mission, picked my slot (KA50 enfield 1-2)

Unpaused the game.


And that's all i did, just left my computer alone after that.

Mission was still running when i came back after 13 minutes.


So this probably means the crash only happens after user input.

ill go and have a look in the mission editor for any triggers etc anyway though.




Ran for a second time after looking at the triggers and seeing the radio menu options.

This time i picked the lead A10C and started it using the cheat start up.

Once it was started up i used the radio menu.

When i used the option "F1, Request Task" the column Q1 stopped where it was.

(not sure why, triggers don't seem to be set up this way)

When i then used the option "F1, Request Sitrep" nothing happened.

Waited till about 13 mins orso had passed and again no crash.




Made a small modification to the mission, being that i changed the column Q1 escort to one vehicle (unarmed HMMV)

And set the speed to max (72km/h) this way it would reach WP1 sooner where it should hold according the advanced wp menu


Ran the mission, again in the A10C slot, again started whit cheat startup

Waited for the Q1 Escort to stop at WP1, it did, so far nothing strange

used radio menu again, Request Task, Q1 Escort resumed driving

After a little while i used radio menu again, request sitrep, nothing happend.

Waited for Q1 escort to reach the town, where it would be killed by the ambush.

HMMV got killed by rpg, no crash

used radio menu again to request a task, and nothing happened.


So, how are you flying this mission?

What are you doing / have you done when it crashes?

Is the first enemy infantry group alive when it crashes? Are some of them dead?

Or is the whole group dead?

I've tried to run my mission again, and well, now it doesn't crash - very weird!


When I made the mission and tried it out, it crashed every single time after about 11 min in-game, but now... nothing.


The way I made it crash was simply to pick an aircraft (ka 50 or A-10C) and wait with or without LCtrl+Z for time speed.


Why is doesn't happen now is beyond me.



*** EDIT ***


I'm able to make it crash again.


What I did:

1. Deleted the DCS folder in Temp (C:\Users\Bruno\AppData\Local\Temp\DCS).

2. Ran the mission from the ME, selected A-10C Enfield11, switched on the battery, and watched the A-10C clock reach approximately 12:11 (using time speedup) where dcs.exe crashes followed by launcher.exe.


How I fixed it:

1. The Q1 Escort group has two "Transmit Message" triggers. I removed them, and now it doesn't crash.



NOTE: I've seen the game become unstable before when clearing the Temp folder, but I can't be sure.

Can you try re-adding the Transmit Nessage triggers in now and see if it crashes, or if it was some inconstancy from an older version.


I'll ask about the temp folders...


I tried to re-add the triggers with no effect, it still crashes.

Ok, so with those triggers you get the crashes, gonna try and play through your mission you posted earlier.



I tried the mission with no crashes, I will try and make a mission with a bunch of those triggers and see what happens... tomorrow yawn :)

Cause narrowed down, but unable to reproduce on our tester version. Hopefully that means it will be in the next patch but that is currently unknown.

The right man in the wrong place makes all the difference in the world.
