Two campaign flights two DTD’s (no after flight campaign screen) when Cntrl-Q’ing out after the flight is over.
Since this forum is not ablaze with this issue I’ll guess I’m just unlucky and special.
Turned off movies and music and reinstalled DX9, etc from the Toolbox and still no good.
Guess we’ll try the old reinstall WOFF trick.

FWIW from the WOFF Log:

Okay.
Did a reinstall, and instead of flying the mission all the way through, Cntrl-Q’ed out of the game 5 times right after take-off and WOFF is working fine. Going to campaign screen and aftermath a-okay.
So unless there is something about flying the mission all the way through that is causing an issue(?) I will have to say the patented “WOFF reinstall” has solved my problem.

Guess I spoke too soon.
Flew a 60 Squadron career from start to finish and, upon Cntrl-Q’ing to end it, DTD’ed to desktop.

EDIT: First ever flight “start to finish” campaign flight with PE where the game didn’t DTD upon exiting. Testing continues.

It's not just you. I'm still getting them too even after following the FAQs. . I suspect there may be others out there as well, but maybe are too shy to report on an open forum.

It seems as if the WOFF manager is crashing after launching the mission, so after flying the mission and trying to end it, there is no more manager to go back and you're just staring at your desktop. Weird.

I'll leave it for now until a patch or some fix gets released. I can't go back to UE after seeing and playing PE.

I may be joining you.
And I’d be curious when it’s crashing. In about 12-15 Cntrl-Q’s right after mission start-up I had no problems.
Assumed at the end of the flight but you may be correct - maybe it’s some time during.

Given PC setups are all different until the actual cause is found we can't "patch" anything, and especially as in the vast majority of cases things like this turn out to be a setting or program on the PC, or hardware related in the years of experience.
Also most people are running fine.

It could be an Anti Virus program issue for example.
Try excluding woff.exe and cfs3.exe and please read section 7 of the FAQ.

Also important that you read and apply section 48.

Also try lowering settings notch maybe you were on the borderline of memory usage before and now it's using a little more etc

If still a problem
send your logs right after a crash to support email address ( do not post them here). See last 2 pages of the FAQ for how and what.

Thank you, Pol. Just to confirm that I had WOFF UE installed before with the same settings, same hardware and missions would end without problems.

I understand, WOFF PE is different by definition wink

New WOFF.exe for a start obviously, maybe AV doesn't like that or it needs compatibility adding/readding who knows there are a million combinations.
It also has more detailed and animated guns for example.

Also try eliminating background programs - are you using VR or 3rd party GPU tools (Afterburner, sweetfx, reshade? then also disable those, close down unnecessary background tasks etc - all covered in the FAQ).

Agreed Polovski - PE is a different beast then UE which, like orbyxP, my machine ran UE great (though not without occasional issues that needed fixing) for years. Clearly one of those changes does not like my set-up. In fact I recall a UE quirk where I had to run WOFF.exe in W7 compatibility mode. Hmmmmmm.
That would show at start-up. Never had this issue. We’ll see.
Okay. I will go over the FAQ again seeing if I missed something. If, after doing everything in the FAQ and it still continues, I’ll send the logs in. After some goofing with my machine.
Fingers crossed....

In my experience, turning off any advanced anti-virus features rather than adding exes to exceptions often helps with this sort of stuff. In the past I used F-Secure antivirus and its "Deepguard" feature would often prevent programs from launching and working properly without any warning or notification from F-Secure.

There could also be some file permission related issues, although it seems unlikely as the game only crashes sometimes for you. You could try running the program as administrator and make sure it's installed directly under a hard drive root (C:\OBDSoftware\WOFF) rather than Program Files or user folders etc.

Currently using Windows Defender after a W10 reinstall last month.
Used Avast previously for a long while and UE ran with both.
Hmmmm again. If only a couple of folks are having this issue (which I never had before) it’s clearly something on my machine not liking Platinum.

I’m a twiddling fool on computers and can probably can find the issue real quick if it didn’t take 30-45 minutes for the problem to manifest itself.

Just throwing this out there. (no DTD's for me)
I always use "Exit Immediately" (aka. Exit Mission Fast) Which I have mapped to Ctrl+Shift+Q
I do not have "Exit" Mission mapped.

<Key ID="" Action="Exit" FriendlyDesc="Exit Sim" Category="SimControl" P4Use="y"/>
<Key ID="Q" Mod="Control+Shift" Action="ExitImmediately" FriendlyDesc="Exit Sim Immediately" Category="SimControl" P4Use="y"/>

I also use Norton AV (nothing excluded) and active all the time, and am on Windows 10 Pro v1903

Nice. Thanks for the tip. Hopefully I’ll get some experiment time later today. Currently “volunteering” for a local charity.
Got a feeling this will be something real simple - once I find the issue of course.

Alright. Sat through 4 grueling missions as the autopilot flew them to the end - no issues.
AV was already set to Ignore the OBD folder and both the WOFF and CFS3 .exes. Must be remembering this from months ago.
So the one change I did make prior to flying these was setting the WOFF.exe to Windows 7 compatibility mode which I sometimes had to do with UE also but not for this specific problem.

DukeIronHand, Im glad you put this out there - I'm having the same issue on UE (My Christmas Present from my wife will be PE) ... I'm going to try The win 7 compatibility mode. Thank you again!
