Hello, and thanks in advance for the time in reading and helping me get this solved.
Essentially, I rebuilt a PC just to be able to run x-plane using reasonable settings. I bought an intel board, quad processor [2.6], 8gb ram, and … a GeForce GT 730 with 4 gb memory.
I am all ready to buy the full game – but am holding my breath because I just can’t get the demo to run now. Xplane 10 runs with older drivers that were more stable w xplane according to forums at nvidia. I've also tried the very latest.
It crashes after loading –usually just before showing me the ‘setup’ window – it shows a sort of rainbow screen of the setup window and then disappears/crashes.
Here is what jumped out at me as I looked at the log and compared it to the working x10 log:
0:00:00.000 E/PRF: Failed to restore custom screen resolution. Monitor 0 does not appear to support a resolution of 0x49566995.
Fetching plugins for C:\X-Plane 11/Resources/plugins
0:00:22.260 W/ATC: Rewrote KAHN atc_ControllerRole_Del's freq: 13395 to 11800 for being in conflict!
I should mention that the large screen smart tv I am using would support most any resolution it wants to run in – and I have tried various settings – even 720 – even switched to vga … no difference.
I’ll try and add the full log – if I can’t attach it I’ll pate it.
Well, I tried and tried. None of the monitors made a difference. I will post results just in case someone wants to look - in log names 'Emerson' is the 32 in. older flat screen w hdmi input. 50 in is Westinghouse smart rv - less than a year old. HP 17 is older flat screen monitor - flat screen but vga connection.
Log shows it is reporting back several unworkable formats - all if formatting is as simple as it seems - way larger than any monitor could provide. I put all settings to default - fooled around with aspect ratio, screen adjustments - again and again. old drivers new drivers... Ha - when all done - no xplane 10 runs in a little window!
I have prepared to overwrite the OS. I hate to as I have hours invested already in setup... but I am going to start clean. It makes no sense to use your [other peoples' time] if there is a quirk in the OS from changing so many settings over time. I seem to remember it may have even worked once about ten days ago.
So, I will reinstall windows 7 - let it complete windows update - I'll install board drivers - and then the sim - if it happens again with a fresh install - I'll come back and submit a bug report.
I will add that this line doesn't seem very positive either - do you recognize the reference:
I'll check back on that error and will report one way or the other if the new install solves the issue. I built this pc just for this purpose -but began using it for other purposes too and maybe something is quirky as a result... it is a frustrating issue...but apparently not the monitor.
