Just got Dumped

Recommended Posts

I was in the middle of a dogfight and the screen suddenly dumped to the briefing room. According to the time there, it was like I never started that mission. Nothing new on the machine other than joining and posting here......

Could have been a GPU overload there Baywing. If it happens again, post on the General Help thread. I've had the same issues on other games as well, especially M$ products.

If it happens a lot then try knocking slides back a notch on terrain and scenery. Overheating can cause it too. OFF will use all your CPU and GPU as OvS says.

It may very well be the vid card. If you remember, I couldn't get my DVI connection to work with OFF, every time I started up, same thing happened, it dumped to the Duty Page. I just got a new 9800GT 512Mb today (ordered yesterday, thanks Newegg!) and the last few flights have been fine, and I'm running the DVI cable with no issues now. The 8600GT may have been overworked (it never complained running FSX though). I also installed nVidia's latest drivers from 3/3/09, hopefully, that will take care of it. If I can only find a leftover AMD X2 6400+.....

Appreciate the replies. I did notice the fan on the new 9800GT was really wound up at the end of the mission, I'm hoping that it was the old (Sounds odd calling a 1 year old GPU old!) vid card was the culprit.
