MY traffic 5.3a Crash FSX and strange navlights


Recommended Posts


PMDG MD11 north of KDFW (FS2Crew, FsDreamteam,GEX and UTX, Radar Contact 4 )

The new strobelights in the sky looks wonderfull, the sky looks beautifull. The nav lights on the wings looks bizar like two big red and green cocoons.

I have two times encountered ctd because FSX can't seems to handle planes getting to close. A Hercules came close and CTD. So I guess My Traffic 5.3a did it?

I have just also changed my tweeks with Bojotes Tweaking and Tuning tool for (FSX SP2/Accel - ESP/Prepar3D)

Any idea.

All the best

Take off all the tweaks with that tool and try again, none of the beta team has had any such CTD with 5.3a as far as I am aware, Burkhard would have mentioned it if that was the case.

Please, in a case of an FSX crash try to give us the location and simulation time as close as possible, then we can fly around there and try to reproduce it.

Did you make a full install or an update?

I know of two reasons FSX may crash in relation to AI traffic.

a) A bug in the aircraft config file, to refer to a non existing model folder. We have tested this a lot, but of course with about 500 model folders referenced 5000 times, there is a tiny chance we missed one. This would need a fix from my side.

B) Files on computer disks do get bad. Thermal noise, cosmic radiation, weird anti virus software, buggy defragmentation tools, and a lot of other reasons can make files bad. Loading a corrupted mdl can crash FSX, as much as loading a corrupted bgl.

If you can reproduce a crash at the same location and same time, so check if it also happens 100 minutes later. If it does it is an error in a scenery file, not in an aircraft.
