Hello, thank you for reporting the problem and providing crash dumps, I have assigned the issue internally.

It looks like some of your data is corrupted, could you please verify it?

Thank you.

Yes, I have verified it. It worked great all the way up to November 4th, I played the Huron/Taru fine all that day. But then November 5th it started. Now I find that it is most likely if the Huron is loaded. I can fly the Taru for a bit before a freeze, but eventually one will come.

Attached are the crash logs for the most recent freeze.

takes about one minue for me to get into that crash using this little way of reproducing:

  1. start the "Sling Loading" showcase mission
  2. move to the chopper
  3. (if not already crashed) get into the chopper

will attach my crash dumps too
just ask for more ... can get plenty of them

@Event Horizon,
could you please disable all mods and upload new dumps? It helps us when analysing them.

not getting the crash anymore since removing all DLLs from the dll folder

that means the game was crashing on memory allocators. We use our own, by deleting them you started using system allocators. The performance might be a bit weaker, it could also mean that some of your hardware is corrupted.

Attached is my most recent crash playing the sling load mission with all mods turned off.

Thank you for looking into this, I would like to get back to flying once again.

does it still happen to you in 1.36?

So far no freezes since the patch. It so far looks like they fixed it. Thank you!
