Safir X: All textures disappearing

Post by satchmo » 05 Nov 2008, 11:50

When I start a flight, at first the Safir renders correcty, but after a few seconds the virtual cockpit just disappears. If I change cameras then all I can see is the torso of the pilot, the whole aircraft has disappeared as well(?)

I'm running a Club3D ATI HD4850 graphics card with the latest Catalyst drivers on an Opteron 939 rig.

Any one else getting the same problem?

Cheers

Satchmo

Hello Satchmo!

Problem was with very first gauge module, seems you have "luck" to get it.

Some hours ago you should receive my letter with reinstallation instruction, check your email please

Hi,

I Just bought this plane yesterday and after installing it, I have this exact same problem, the plane loads, I throttle up, and then the model goes and the engine cuts out. Is there a fix for this that I might have missed, cheers, James.

Hello at all,

Yes, it is a great bug.
I test the SAAB since shortly with the following results:

The first version doesn’t work stable. No way, it’s the only aircraft with a prompt CTD in FSX I know it.
Better is the new safir.dll for gauges.
With a little bit of luck you can see the Saab…for few seconds. Than remains a ghost ship.

I amuse me three days with a search of a durable solution, reinstall Windows and the FSX of a brand- new Harddisk, retested various drivers and settings, FSX with SP2 or AccPack and many other things.
No better result.

Than I come across a little trick…and it works fine!

Load the FSX with the default Cessna, favoured airfield and weather conditions.
Than switch with “ALT-ENTER” in windowed mode, select the Safir, return to full frame and fly.

Hope I can help you,
-Ralf-

I think problem with simconnect.

Lets make simconnect log.

1. Please, find the following file: c:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\My Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\SimConnect.ini
2. If it doesn't exist, create it
3. make this file with following strings containing:
[SimConnect]
level=verbose
RedirectStdOutToConsole=1
OutputDebugString=1
file=c:\simconnect%03u.log
file_next_index=3
file_max_index=9
4. Start FSX with Safir
5. Close FSX
6. send me file c:\simconnect.log

O.k. it's misterious...

Now, i can see and flight the Safir - not always, but 3 of 10 times. And not the new download version, only limited the "inofficial" 2.01.
One time, the FSX crashes immediately, another time, I see the Safir for a few seconds, sometimes, the FSX CTD without a signal after a 5 minute flight, and sometimes, I can flight without any problems, switching the planes etc.

I send you the last simconnect.log - please, find the troublemaker!

regards,
-Ralf-

Do you have a CTD or just textures disappearing ?
And what does your phrase " I don't have simconnect !" mean ?

This problem with the disappearing model and textures also happens to me, no CTD though, i have also tried the different solutions posted here in this topic with no luck.

I have a simconnect log if anyone is interested? Any clues?

Oh almost forgot.
I run FSX with acceleration pack installed.
Ati Radeon 1950XT with the latest drivers.
XP with SP3.

No other problems with FSX at the moment. This seems to be isolated to the Safir.

Safir X: All textures disappearing

Post by level135 » 10 Apr 2009, 19:47

Hi, the same for me invisble after a few seconds.

I just made a simconnect log, if you want, but it's a big file, 5 Mo.

I hope you'll find a solution quikly, it's a shame to not be able to fly a plane we just purchase

Regards
