SFO stuck at 72% when raining

Recommended Posts

I've tried about a half dozen times to load KSFO with rainy weather and each time the game freezes at the loading screen at 72%. It happens if I select "stormy" weather manual as well as if I select "random" weather and the system randomly applies rain.

Are you using DSR (Dynamic Super Resolution - Nvidia), or VSS (Virtual Super Resolution -AMD), to render your main window higher than your monitor's default resolution?

If so, try it at default, probably 1080p, and see if you still have a problem.

I render my main window at 4k, even though my screen is 1080p (to try and improve the textures), and I get this problem at some airports. I can't remember which ones though. I don't particularly like the storm effects (too noisy), when really I am only after strong winds to make runway choice a little more challenging. Why it was decided not to allow users to set their own weather escapes me .......

Just tried again.

Changed DLAA to FXAA in advanced settings and loaded ok. Changed back to DLAA and loaded ok.

Don't know what caused the lock up this morning but seems ok at the moment. Could crash the next time, who knows?

Cheers

Hi,

Back to locking up at 72% when stormy.

Tried what I did yesterday but didn't work this time. Have uninstalled and reinstalled KSFO but didn't fix it.

Can't upload output file as it is too big!

Anybody else having this problem?

Cheers

Hi Vic,

Forum won't allow me to upload the output log. Keeps telling me file is too big. Only allowed to upload file size less than 20.48 KB.

File size is 664 KB yet the file in the OP post is 576 KB!!!

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi,

Still too big.

If nobody else is having this issue then it must be something at my end.

Will play around and see if I can fix it. Might have been the latest Nvidia driver update. When I have time I'll install an older driver and see if it fixes it.

Cheers.

This is happening for me on ATL. Was trying to record a session with limited time so I tried to get a log after the fact which broke the game lol. Once I reinstall everything and I have a moment I'll dump a log file.

Thank you. On one computer we were able to reproduce at KSFO. An SP is due for the aiport, it will be also addressed.

 

Thank you


Vic

Hi,

I'm not sure if this will be of any help but the following airports all stop loading for me at 72% using Stormy Weather.

KJFK, KSFO, KLAS and KSAN.

If I start TIST, KLAX, KPHL, KATL, KBOS and KLGA with stormy weather they load OK.

The interesting thing is if I use one of the airports that work then exit to the main screen and then load KJFK, KSFO, KLAS or KSAN using stormy weather they then load no problem.

(Still unable to upload any logs due to restriction on file size).

Many cheers

Can't load a log on this but ever since the last update SP whatever airport I load and Stormy weather comes up on random or I select the stormy function on a airport load manually it loads ok but after about 30 seconds the game freezes and screen states Tower 3d pro not responding so have to then exit. Had this on KPHL, KLAS, KBOS and KJFK. Never had this problem before.

Like jumpjet777 not a fan of the stormy weather effect as its ruddy noises in headphones after a while but like the challenge of the higher winds.

Hi Vic,

Given Beardy's comment that this 72% hanging issue is more widespread than just the Bay Area, what are the plans to fix it at KJFK, KLAS & KSAN?

Geez Wayne - you just don't let up do you.

I don't have a very powerful system and I did have issues with KSFO. But all the other airports mentioned above work fine for me in stormy weather. So, maybe there are other mitigating circumstances involved here - not sure I'm ready to call it widespread.

But, of course, you're welcome to disagree. ;)

Craig,

I'm lucky enough to have a powerful Alienware system but I have not tried stormy weather at the airports listed by Beardy.  I just trusted him when he reported a more widespread issue but Vic's solution was for one airport.  Mine was not an evidenced based comment I will concede.  Maybe one day we can chat about this over a beer?

For younger readers, other refreshing beverages are available.

Hi,

Latest patch appears to have fixed the 72% issue.

Tested KJFK, KLAS, KSAN and KSFO and all loaded ok (JFK failed first attempt). Tried numerous times exiting program, restarting and selected affected airports. So far all good. :O)

Many thanks

Craig,

It seems we'll have nothing to talk about over our beer (or another refreshing beverage for the younger controllers).  Oh well.

72Mb patch downloaded on steam yesterday.

Just checked and it is SP 3.3c which according to Steam was released on 21 March!!!!

Don't know if it is an updated SP or Steam has been really lazy in updating. Auto updates are turned on. Can't remember which SP was displayed on the front screen prior to yesterday.

Anyway, appears to have fixed, for now, the problem I was having.

Cheers
