Game freezes every time I try to land, or when I’m taxing to the gate

What the title says.

Every time I try to land the game will freeze for a minute, and everything goes red, and it won’t connect till another few minutes. Is this a WiFi issue?

Can you get into the game?

Try this:

General tips regardless of device:

  • Turn Limit Frame Rate ON (box should be ticked) if you notice that your device tends to heat up or if you are experiencing lag. A device that heats up too much is more likely to suffer performance degradation which could lead to lag and app crashes.
  • Infinite Flight doesn’t take up a specific amount of storage, it can change depending on the area you’re flying in etc. We therefore recommend that you always have at least 1GB of storage available on your device.
  • Before longer flights, it is advised to reboot your device and close any apps running in the background to enhance your experience.
  • It is possible to fly and charge the device at the same time. The key to this is to use less power than being charged. One way to accomplish this is lower your screen brightness and ensure Infinite Flight’s low power mode is enabled.
  • Disable active ad or message blocking apps
  • Don’t modify, “Root”, or “Jailbreak” your device
  • Use a strong WiFi network within a relatively close proximity to your device
  • Lower Infinite Flight graphics and performance settings
    1. Lower the Rendering Resolution setting.
    2. Disable Anti-Aliasing.
    3. Lower the Rendering Quality setting.
    4. Lower the Texture Quality setting.

At any point if you’re experiencing decreased performance, “Limit frame rate” should always be ticked. This setting can have a great negative impact on performance unless your device is considered high performance.

General iOS tips:

  • One great thing to do before launching Infinite Flight, is to perform a soft restart of the device. This is a quick and reliable way of making sure your device is operating at peak efficiency. This is done by holding down the power/lock button until you see “Slide to power off”. Then hold down the home button until you’re returned to the home screen. For iOS devices without a Home button, a restart is recommended as the soft restart feature does not exist on those.
  • Make sure you don’t have “Low power mode” on your iPhone. If you have, the battery icon in the top right corner is yellow. This can be deactivated from Settings -> Battery, or from “Control Center” depending on how you have it set up. Having “Low power mode” enabled while using Infinite Flight could result in a performance degradation.
    Note : This is not the same as “Low power mode” in Infinite Flight. This is a device function.

General Android tips:

  • Make sure you have Android Battery Saver disabled. Having this enabled can cause a lot of degradation in terms of both storage, performance and network.
  • Newer Android devices may work fine with Anti-Aliasing on. Turning this off can help performance for older/less powerful Android models.
  • Some devices (ie Samsung) may have a Game Tuner app to enhance the performance of games. While some users have not seen an issue there is a number who have. It is best to run IF by itself instead of through a game tuner.

If none of the suggestions above helps:

As a final resort, reset the device to factory settings. Be sure to back up all important data on your device first.

Ummm…this is happening when I’m landing, of course I can get into the game, I’m able to takeoff perfectly fine. This only happens when I’m like 500 feet away

Try what I said above

I have read everything, and it’s not lag like that, it just freezes, and everything goes red.

What device do you have? And what OS is it running?

iPad 6th gen IOS 12.4.1

Mmm, I have the same one in the same OS and not an issue, how much storage do you have left?

20GB of 32GB

I do clear the scenery often; and I still have problems that next flight

Are you running the latest version of IF?

Yep indeed I am

Does it happen on every aircraft?

I have it in an a320 737 (not the TMB 930) and a few others, 772 787s

It will also happen sometime when I’m about to takeoff. So I’m thinking it has to do with some sort of WiFi issue.

Sounds like there may be an issue that is network related. Do you reset your router regularly? Does this happen at every airport you try to land at? Sorry for all of the questions, did this just happen with the most recent airport update that was pushed?

Just last week I got a new router. It’s been at KBDL KEWR TJSJ KIAH KSFO ZBAA, but when did you push the airport update?
To be honest the internet connection where I am isn’t the best, but I haven’t had issues like this before, as I said I’m thinking it has to do with the WiFi and internet connection where I am

Airport pushes are generally pushed at the end of each month. At this point if nothing has worked then try deleting IF and reinstalling.

I will do so, was also thinking that. But I had started the issue this month. I was fine in August
