My flight crashed

This has happened multiple times and it’s really ticking me off I just flew for 16 hours 16 and upon final at KMSP my game just randomly crashes can someone help explain I don’t know what to do because it might crash over long term flights can someone help me.

Alright. Can you give more details, such as aircraft and server?



Also, what do you mean it crashed? Like the aircraft crashed or the game crashed?

If the game crashed, I would do these things.

Shut down the game and restart it. If that does not work, delete it and re download it. You should also clear your scenery cache.

The game just randomly crashed

This happened to me in the past. I turned on Low Power Mode, and everything was fine

Of course I really don’t know anything about this, but I’m just assuming this will work based on personal experience.

Hey Zach, have you tried the following steps?

What to do if I experience app crashes of lag

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.


Try these steps, and see what happens next time

  1. Lower the Rendering Resolution setting.
  2. Disable Anti-Aliasing.
  3. Lower the Rendering Quality setting.
  4. Lower the Texture Quality setting

Also another important question that once again nobody has asked…

What device are you using @Zach007 ?

Did you have any other applications running in the background at the same time?

Also, are any extensions running for IF?

No other applications were running and I have an iPad mini 4

No nothing was open in the background no extensions nothing

Alright. It sounds like a scenery cache situation. I would clear it and then get back to me if that works.

Are you currently running ios13? There have been several reported issues from people encountering lag and crashes using the latest software…

I’ll update now

I’m not entirely sure how you came to this conclusion… App crashes can happen on any device at any time for an infinite number of reasons. It can be down to poor software optimisation, perhaps an apps ram usage spiked in the background

Bad idea. I just said that iOS 13 has been causing issues 😝

So I wen to the replay and saw that apparently my device memory was low is there any way I can fix this

If you are on IOS 13, its probably the situation with that. The devs are working on a solution for it. Just give them time for a hotfix.

Oh lol sorry I won’t update it then
