FS9 Takes A Long Time To Start

Tue Nov 02, 2004 1:12 am

My FS9 takes a long(and I mean long) time in starting,and when it does I don't feel like playing anymore.
Is there a problem?,or,does this happen to everyone?

At what point is it hanging - initial boot up or loading of a flight? What other programmes/processes are running at the same time and what addon software are you running? Have you done a virus check lately and defragmented the drive?

Well,I mean when you start it.
I don´t think that my comp has a virus since my dad works at Macafee.The other programs seem to work fine.
Thanks!

You could try deleting FS9.exe. When you start FS a new .exe is replaced. It might just need to be refreshed.

Mine used to take ages until I installed the no cd patch. It loads in half the time now. I think it was taking ages to verify the No4 disk.

If your FS2004 is a big file (aircraft etc), it takes ages to load. I will start mine up and then go away and do something else, come back in 15mins and its still going (or only just done). And because i have a lot of AI traffic, it takes about 10mins to load a flight at a major airport. So takes about half an hour just to get into an aircraft.

It may be worth running a virus check even if your dad works at McAfee - they can get in through all sorts of ways.
Try closing down unnecessary processes before loading.

When did this problen start occuring and what had you changed previous to it?

Try cleaning your computer, by this I mean cleaning the files by downloading some programme. I don't know much about it, but I heard that it works wonders. Also, if that doesnt work, upgrade the ram.

Has it always acted like that? If so, ask your dad to buy a new computer and write it off against tax.

If not, I would try running the disk defragmenting program to clean your harddrive up a little.

Viruses or Spyware, either can slow a normally fast machine to a crawl. Other than that how many programs are running in the background, is it possible to end some of them while you are running FS9? Also remember that antivirus software seems to be increadably comsuming of memory when it is running. Not to mention instant messaging programs and other management software. If you are unsure about what is necessary to run at all times have you father look at it. It could be as simple as ending a few background tasks.

Try sacrificing some planes, or exchange some of your downloads to ones with a smaller size (like instead of the Aerodesigns A340-300, you can go with the POSKY A340-300, or instead of a POSKY 744, you just find a repaint for the default plane)
