FS Shuts Down Automatically

Wed Aug 27, 2003 6:17 am

Started happening today, flying East Midlands - Geneva and when I choose the aircraft, it just closes. My desktop goes completely blue and then I have to restart FS, only for it to close when I load my flightplan.

I've checked on the avsim FS2002 forum and it says something about using old modules. I installed a new panel with an old FS2000 'FSSOUND.DLL'. I got rid of the panel and the module but it's still shutting down automatically.

Anything I can do to stop this happening?

Thanks for any help.


My specs:

P4 2.4Ghz
256Mb RAM
ATI Radeon 9000
40Gb H/D

try re-installing the game. sometimes there are bugs in it (damn microsoft) that persay hasn't happened to me, but i have had trouble getting fs to load. it comes to the purple loading screen and just freezes.

I once installed a FFX DC10-30 base pack. I then wanted to use it for the Biman DC10-30ER livery too. I added it to the base pack folder. This was a mistake, I should have used the FFX DC10-30ER base pack, NOT the FFX DC10-30..when I selected the Biman livery from the fs menu, fs shut down immediately...maybe this could be the problem?

Well I've played on it for a few hours today and have had no problems. Don't know what was up with it.
