Screen Freeze

My opening screen in FSX with Acceleration tends to freeze constantly for 3 to 5 minutes every time I change flights. I also get frame freeze when in flight for about 15 seconds. Is there something I can do to remedy this issue?

I am experiencing something similar... And I think there's something about windows 10 memory managing...

I've also been getting the menu screen freezing. It's caused by a corrupted scenery database. You can rebuild a clean database like this:

Navigate to: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX\SceneryIndexes and delete all the the .dat files in there. You can replace them from the Recycle Bin if anything goes wrong.

Restart FSX and it'll show a message like: "Completing install. Creating scenery databases".

Once it's finished you'll be able to select flightplans, locations and the date and time without delays again.

Two things also to remember with Win 10.

1. Upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 that came out a few months ago Win 1909

2. Run the Sim in Windows XP sp2 compatibility

You need to enable "show hidden files" in your Windows settings: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4028316/windows-view-hidden-files-and-folders-in-windows-10

It's showing, but I don't have a directory called ProgramData under C drive.

My windows is in Brazilian Portuguese, but all the main directories have the default name.

ProgramData is a windows default file name, it will be in the drive where you have windows installed.

I have it under Documents and Settings/Application Data/Microsoft/FSX/SceneryIndexes

 

You're still using Windows XP Charlie! Even so, is WinXP on your C:\ drive?

I did this and it messed up FSX, now every time I start FSX the scenery regens which takes about 10 minutes or more. Additionally this did NOT improved anything in my FSX, still freezes.

 

Did you put the original files back into place?

Still thinking about a new flightsim only computer!  ✈️
