I don’t normally make posts complaining about the game but my game has crashed 4 times in a row on Friday I tried going from EGLL to KORD and both times crashed about 4 hours in so I tried again on the Saturday again 4 hours in it crashes I never made a post because I saw that there was a hotfix coming updated my game today this time I was going from EGLL to KDFW and again 4 hours in and it crashes
Hey man, I know how you feel. Same thing happened to me even after the hotfix! I’ve done everything I could possibly do but the issue is still ongoing. It’s really frustrating! Hopefully something is done to fix it for good.
I am one of many pilots here experiencing the crashes issue since the 23.3 update.
However I have been experimenting a solution I found that might limit on chances of a crash recurring.
Ideally when en-route preferably TOC, change view on screen to instruments and zoom in a little and set HUD map ONLY.
I appreciate this may feel like flying blind but it seems to minimise the scenery load leading to a crash. It’s not an ideal situation though.
And you can reset it to your usual preferred view on screen e.g HUD view, or Captain view when descending/on final approach (I switched when on final approach/final to minimise scenery load).
So far it is working(for me) with this method; 3 out of 3 long hauls completed with no crashes.
I have since updated the hotfix that came yesterday & some I understand are still experiencing unexplained crashes even with low settings.
So will continue to employ the above method until such time there’s a solution.
I mean you wouldn’t be at your device anyway during a long haul flight, so what you see/don’t see really isn’t an issue. This solution has been said in multiple support topics, and it’s highly recommended as it really reduces crashes. What I’ve done is power saving mode, lowest graphics, instrument view, minimum brightness and time set to night which reduces the strain on the device (both in terms of graphics and battery usage). This allows me to do over 12hrs of flying without needing to charge, and without crashes. (With charge left over for up to 14hrs in total)
That being said, 23.3 did bring a lot more crashing (my first device crashes for ages), but the hotfix has certainly helped to resolve this.
