Have a bit of a head scratcher...
When I load any mission what I get after unpausing the "Start pause" - more often than not anyway - is a second or less of active game where it appears to be running fine - the prop is spinning, all seems right. Then it's all frozen in place... the only option is the escape menu, I click finish mission no luck, restart mission nothing either.
The crash I have never seems to generate a crash dump file (.dmp file) in the appdata/local/crash dumps
Despite having enabled these files to appear if the game crashes. I see a "launcher.exe.backup.12716.dmp" but backup I suppose suggests something else.
I run the game in in -
--1920x1080 Fullscreen Res
No 4k preferred textures.
Autoscaled interface (Same in launcher as it is for in game settings - For Rs, 4k, and auto scale)
mirrors - simple.
Distant landscape detail - normal
Horizon draw distant - 150km
Landscape filter - off
target FPS -60
Dynamic resolution factor - full
AA - 2
HDR - enabled
Trackir 4 (No VR headset, don't own one)
Online purchase of game (non-steam version)
I turned down the resolution only when this problem first happened, fiddled around with graphics settings a little but didn't touch anything major just reduced AA, SSAO set to off, shadows to medium and distance landscape reduced - however this has happened ever since I purchased the aforementioned rig, game ran fine on the other computer.
I am running the following rig
O/S - Win 10 x64 Home edtion
Intel Core i7-7700K CPU - 4.20GHz, Quad Core
Samsung SSD 960 EVO Hard drive 250GB
16 GB RAM
As mentioned no crash dump file appears I have enabled .dmp files to appear if a crash occurs, nothing at all has appeared in the crash dump folder.
I've tried to provide as much info as I can think of - of course without a .dmp it's a bit tricky
