Hello all,
I have Wings Over Flanders Fields Ultimate Edition patched to 4.15. Up until recently, I have been able to fly this sim using my moderate graphics card using default shaders with mid to low graphics settings. While the sim had occasional stutters and such, it did run rather smoothly and I enjoyed flying it. Recently, I upgraded my graphics card to a Nvidia GTX660-DC2. WOFF is now like a whole new sim. I am able to use the DX9 Enhancement Shaders which are really mind blowing. My FPS are between 65 to 110 and the sim runs really smooth with no stutters. I especially enjoy the cockpit shake effect. Anyway, every once in a while, when I am flying, the mission suddenly ends (usually after about ten minutes) and I am redirected to the Mission End/ details screen which tells me I ended the mission while still flying and the details are logged into my dossier. As I stated, this only happens once in a while, but it is somewhat annoying. Does anyone know what is causing this and if there is a possible fix? Enjoying the heck out of WOFF but I hate when this happens.

Are you running any mods? If a mod is the culprit, I suggest the following: deactivate them all and then try running WOFF to see if the problem recurs. If it doesn't then reactivate one mod at a time and continue testing.
It's a tedious suggestion but a worthwhile one to isolate if the problem is in WOFF or somewhere else.

Robert,
Thank you for the response and suggestions. However, I am not running any mods, just the DX9 Enhancement Shaders. As I said, this problem occurs infrequently. Maybe once in seven missions. I can live with this I suppose but if someone could offer a fix or solution, I would greatly appreciate it.

Let me offer something else worth checking out. You may want to verify that your CPU or GPU is not overheating. There are various tools out there that will monitor the temps. I had a similar problem until I added a water cooler to my rig. Not saying...Just suggesting!

Two other possibilities, either which may be related to getting a new graphics card:

1) excessive heat. Try taking the case off and directing air on to the mb.
2) inadequate power supply. Perhaps your new card is putting a strain on your power supply. Disconnect one or more peripherals to see if the problem goes away.

I had a similar problem a free years ago with intermittent crashes that went away only after I upgraded my power supply.

Good point about the power supply thumbsup

I too have had this in the past few months. I started enabling/disabling mods trying to isolate it and could not.
Since then Windows 10 has been updated, video drivers have been updated, TrackIR has been updated, been flying with a different pilot...

Don't know but I've not seen the issue recently.

My issue was not hardware related, no hardware changes have been made since I built my system.
I did not have the problem for a long time, had the problem for a short time, and now do not have the problem.

Some solace in knowing that you are not alone, but little help otherwise.

Best of luck.

Thanks for all the advice fellas. Before I had this graphics card installed, I made sure to upgrade the power supply. As far as the graphics card goes, it has two cooling fans and was advertised to have a DirectCU that achieves 20% lower temps with twice the dissipation area and 6X greater airflow than conventional design. So I figure it is just some glitch that I am going to have to deal with from time to time.

I experience the same problem (ca 10% of my flights crash to debriefing screen). I have some suspection but to confirm my theory, I need to check your log files. Can you send them to me the next time it happen? Log files are located in OBD Software/WOFF/Logs folder. Thank you.

Seamus,
I am a bit late to this party and may be wrong but it sounds similar to a problem some folks were having a while back. Have you set compatibility to window's 8 or 7? This is covered in the FAQ I believe. Worth a try anyway.

I am running Windows 8 but I did not know there was a way to set the simulations compatibility to it. I will go look in FAQ to see how it is done.

Just got kicked out in the thick of the fight, Pfalz E III vs. Nieup 10 in autumn 1915. I think the Pfalz E III is superior to the Fokker E I (though it's not as stable as a gun platform) and on even terms with the Nieup 10. Would those upper wings have tolerated the dive ...? Heck, i'll never know.

I just got back into WOFF, with Ultimate Edition, and was abruptly dumped out of my mission. Would the logs still help?
