when im playin fs 2k4 in flight, and pres the alt button to bring up a menu, the game suddenly freezes! Please can anyone help me on how to resolve this.
Pressing the "ALT" button to bring up the tool bar on the top is supposed to freeze the sim so you can make changes.
After you make the changes and "OK" them you should be able to return to the flight, possibly hit "P" for pause or un-pause.
Is this what you needed?
sorry dude, i knew this its just it locks up completely, but thanks for trying m8, appreciated
What are your computer specs.
Do you have the latest DirectX 9.0c, all the Windows updates, or SP2 and the latest video card drivers.
I've had something like this in the past...... When I pressed ALT, the game would freeze and also the menu bar wasn't displaying.
But this only happened in certain add-on planes...
I got around it by doing a complete uninstall of FS2004 and all add-ons, then deleting the "Flight Simulator 9" folder if it was still there, then shutting down the PC, booting it back up and installing everything again.
This takes me about 1.5 hours to do but I've done it 4 tines now in the last 3 months, and it usually sorted the problem out, plus it seems to give you higher FRAME RATES for a while after, too !
Thanks for all your help guys! Appreciated
