Greetings Pete,

 

I am using registered version of FSUIPC and use the auto-save feature which is very useful.However, i find that fsx will freeze for about 5-7 sec after every 300sec (as set) to save the files. I realize that aerosoft airbus fsx being a complex add-on, Fsx will need time to process it to save the airbus state as well as fsx situation which is fine. I don't see the freezes when using FSX default aircrafts. I have also excluded fsx, its addon and related folders from windows defender in win10. I scanned through many post related to this in various forums. Alas!!! i was unable to find a working solution.

What happens is that ; Like yesterday and many other times ; when i was landing i was less that 10FT RA and fsx froze. Concentrating so much on the sim, I didn't realize fsx had frozen. . As lot of control inputs were already given when FSX had frozen; FSX had to process that. After the 7th sec FSX resumed, The aircraft hit very hard on ground (315 FPM), which actually spoils all the fun of landing an aircraft. Changing or increasing the time interval for auto save won't help because if the time period ends at the critical phases, Fsx will definitely freeze.

What I suggest is if you can introduce a new feature which can carry out below functions:-

1.If we can disable auto-save feature (as per user choice) automatically when certain conditions are met like:- (i can remember only of this)

  a. landing gear extended (when G button is pressed).

 b. when below a certain altitude (like disable autosave when below XXXXFT) or between certain altitudes.

c. at a press of a key or joystick button.

 

It is upto the user prerogative whether to use such a feature or not. Because, if fsx freezes permanently or crashes when the auto-save is disabled. Then, no way of restoring FSX and other complex add-ons to the desired state.

 

I got this idea from weather addon opusFsi which has  a nice feature to stop weather update when certain conditions are met like  on approach, on certain distance from arrival airport etc.

Hope you can shed some light into this.

 

Please advise if more info needed.

FSUIPC4 is no longer under development. However, I can add this to the feature request list for FSUIPC5 (for P3Dv4) if folks think this useful.

Cheers,

John

Hi,

Seems many add-ons developers have ditched fsx. I have doubts whether such feature is will be useful in p3d as the specs requirement of p3d is high and add-ons are well optimised for p3d so such freezes will be very rare.

The problem still exists in P3D with complex aircraft (e.g. PMDG). The time taken to save can also depend on many things - active virus scanning can slow things down to unacceptable levels, and disk speed (SSD or not), fragmentation of available space, etc.

Note that FSUIPC just calls the sim's facilities to save the state.

Cheers,

John
