This is my final time to ask a question before I (Sadly) dump XPlane 11.Can somebody please point me where to start. My prime focus is Zibo, my rig is not bad, AMD FX8350 4GHz with 16Gig of RAM GTX1060 6GB Card,all on Win 10. Zero plugins, standard scenery. PC will crash while programming FMC, or approaching an Airport, or any weather other than clear day
I'm not with Laminar Research either, just a fellow simmer from the UK, but my friend down under Glenn has asked me to take a look at your post question as I use the Zibo 737-800X a lot.
Firstly we are interested to look at your X-Plane 11 Log.txt file, the file that you recently posted was the X-Plane Installer Log.txt file which is different and does not in any event indicate any issues.
If you're not sure how to upload the X-Plane Log.txt file, please click on the following link to view a number of PowerPoint slides that I have prepared specifically for this purpose:-http://questions.x-plane.com/?qa=blob&qa_blobid=17830136656522860642
Couple of other questions:-
1. When you say that your "PC crashes", do you mean exactly that i.e. the whole PC shuts down (BSOD) or do you mean that X-Plane 11 shuts down i.e. crashes to desktop (CTD)?
2. The CPU, GPU and RAM spec's look more than adequate, but please confirm the spec of your PSU, which for your GTX1060 should be at least 400W according to NVIDIA.
3. Do you have the very latest drivers for your GTX1060?
Hope this helps for now and we look forward to hearing back from you :-)
Sorry for the late reply, but its all down to my frustration with Xplane which I parked up for a month because I was so disappointed in it performance. Just to answer your questions.
The PC crash is a full BSOD.
My PSU is a Corsair CX750 750W
Without updating the GTX1060, I took a short flight to my home airport EIDW (Xplane Default). As I approached finals I had a BSOD. I have attached this log a LogMyCrash.
I then updated GTX driver from 417.35 to 425.31. This time I BSOD as I was on the ground programming the FMC to start my flight.. agin file attached as Log_My2ndCrash
I am very appreciative of your help and I thank you for your support
I am not from Laminar Research; just another flight simmer from down under trying help the new flight simmers.
The log.txt file is self generated every time you shut down X-Plane or your system crashes. Depending on how you have installed x-plane it is always located in your root directory as either C:\x-plane\log.txt or as C;\user name\x-plane\log.txt or in a dedicated directory where you have installed the software. It is always the starting point to solve all X-Plane problems.
Next time you run x-plane note the time it crashes or you shut down and then go searching for the name and time.
The log.txt files gives you the "guts" of what is happening with your system. As Russ (North_View) has indicated if you can't or don't attach the log.txt file others cannot help.
The file is in your system.
