View Full Version : 'medium' cloud detail solves 3_01m freezes for me

While trying to track down my sim crash/lockup issues with FB+AEP+PF 3.01m
I have found a solution that has stopped the crashes for 12 missions in a row.
I turned cloud details down from 'high' to 'medium' in the in-game hardware
setup page.
A few of the freezes I experienced occurred while the sky was full of
clouds and while the sim was regenerating those clouds. There would be a brief
flash, then the clouds would begin regenerating from the horizon in, then half-
way through the regen the game would freeze.
I lowered the cloud details as one of many adjustments searching for an
answer. Since then I have only flown in IL-2 campaigns so I don't know if cloud
complexity is the only issue, only that lowering cloud detail from 'high' to
'medium' has since stopped my freezes. I'll write here again if this
situation changes. This point is probably moot, as the patches keep coming from
1C:Maddox fast and furious (thanx for the wonderful support for a very beautiful
flight sim http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif), but because of the freezing issue I have been having with 3.01m
I've decided to avoid 3.02bm and await a non-beta patch.
