Game Locks/Ends Career

Postby Padre » Tue Apr 23, 2019 12:43 pm

This has simply happened far too often, so I thought I would reach out and see if others are experiencing this problem.

Every now and then (not on any regular basis), as I'm flying on the servers, my screen will lock up and when it finally unlocks I'll have crashed, thus ending whatever career I have built up at that point. Coincidentally, it never happens when I'm in level flight, I've usually just executed a dive or a turn when it happens.

I mean, I'm used to ending careers because of some bone-headed "rooky" decision I've made, but when the game keeps killing me off this way, well that just becomes annoying.

I don't play much else other than CLOD-Blitz, so I have not comparisons to determine if it's a problem with my machine, just wondering if others are meeting a similar fate.

'Nough said' I'll quit my whining :-)

Padre the only reason our server kills you when your machine locks up is it thinks you have disconnected on purpose. We had to put this in this way because of people disconnecting to save there career when they were getting shot down so in order to avoid a death they would disconnect.Sorry but it must remain in because of a few people that would do it over and over again.

What video card are you running and driver version? Do you hear the game sounds when this happens? May be a video card issue.

Thanks guys, I'm just glad to hear that I'm not the only one experiencing this problem. I understand and agree with the reasoning for killing the career, I'm simply trying to figure out if there is something I can do, on my end, to prevent this from happening i.e. if it's an equipment issue, then look at taking steps to resolve the issue; if it's a program issue, then hope someone in the programming department will address the issue.

Although my system is no gaming PC powerhouse, I don't see it as no "slouch" either:

Dell Inspiron 3847
x64 based PC
Windows 10
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4460 CPU@3.20GHz, 3201MHz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
16GB RAM (2 Sticks of Corsair XMS3 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800))
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, 4GB GDDR5 memory (driver version: 425.31, release date: 04/11/2019)

In the end, it will not stop me from playing one of the best flight SIM's I've ever experienced, but it does take some of the "power out of my tail wind" :-)

Padre,

You system is way more powerful than mine and yet I don't have the problems you have been experiencing. I strongly suspect that what you have is a network issue.

Somewhile ago I had problems with a dodgy cable leading to my house which would cause short intermittent network disconnections. I lost quite a few aeroplanes and careers until the problems was properly diagnosed and then fixed.

You might be on to something there Blind!

I just went on one of the servers and I checked my "ping" rate. In less than a minute, my ping went from 90 to 165, then to 88, then 93, then down to 85 and back up to 101. So something is certainly irregular there. I'll have to explore what my option are to improve "stretching" the cable all the way to the West coast of Canada ... or simply live with it :-)
