I click the START FLIGHT button on X-plane 11. It loads the flight, but, will not start. The screen is frozen. It stays in frozen screen mode, then crashes after about 30 seconds. This happens when I am hooked to the internet. The solution of course is to Load the flight and get everything set. then turn on the internet for my background items. But the question is----------should it be necessary for me to have the internet shut down, load the flight, then turn it back on?
I must have a conflict somewhere that has to do with the internet. I do not see how it could be the game.
Your encounter with X-Plane 11 not launching correctly, resulting in a frozen screen followed by a crash, is indeed perplexing. This scenario, especially when linked to internet connectivity, suggests a few underlying issues that could range from software conflicts to hardware limitations. Let's dissect the potential culprits and navigate towards a solution.
Firstly, it's crucial to understand that X-Plane 11, like its successors and contemporaries such as Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 and X-Plane 12, often requires internet access for various functionalities. These range from streaming high-fidelity terrain data to updating real-time weather conditions. However, your internet connection should not be a source of conflict causing the simulator to freeze or crash.
Asking for Further Details:
Should the problem persist, providing more specific information could help in diagnosing the issue more accurately. Information such as error logs, system specifications, and details about the background applications running would be invaluable.
In the meantime, consider visiting X-Plane's Knowledge Base for official troubleshooting guides and support. While I understand the inconvenience of having to adjust your internet settings as a workaround, it's a temporary measure. Identifying the root cause will offer a more permanent solution.
