tech help for bouncing to desktop

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded this game today because of all the posters on this forum but when I installed the game once I go into the game and click on fly or instant action I am booted out to the desktop.

Anyone have any ideas.

I have looked around but have not seen the same problem.

If this is not the place for this post just let me know.

 

I sure would like to try out this game tonight.

Thanks

Mike

I have to change a DLL in a windows computer? That worries me. I dont like to mess around with dll files. Is this just a directx install or something that I can trust in more?

Yes its a download form MS and its just a current update to Direct X 9c.

 

Alot of times there are upgrades to the DL and its not a version change. I usually hi there every few months to DL again to grab small changes they do.

 

If thats the problem, which it has been for alot of new players, you should get a pop up window when you get dumped to the desktop with the error he described above.

 

Another thing that can DTD is calling up a plane skin thats not available. I have heard of that one as well.

 

If your still getting errors just post what error is saying and im sure one of us can help you 8)

Well with patch 2 out, its a real possibility of going down in flames nowdays 8)

 

 

I did notice some guys saying the game is a little tougher because the AI uses its rudder but I have not installed the patch yet. Figure I can get used to the mechanics of the game before I make it harder on myself.
