Some time ago I asked for help 'cause my aircraft textures were very slow to load...sometimes would not load at all, just a big bunch of grey. Can't find the original thread...so this one.
I think I have found the problem. I tried to use some FS9 gauges in FSX. The catapult and arrestor gauges (COP3) were made for FS9, but I thought I would use them in FSX. They did not work and I forgot about them. After much trial and error, I removed these gauges and now FSX is working fine. My aircraft textures are loading quickly, and my "crash to desktop" have stopped....well not completely. Some FS9 things work in FSX, but not all. If the author say FS9 only...believe it!!!
PS: How do I find my old posts?
