Hi all,

I've installed orbiter 2010 and the latest project apollo.

Whatever I do, the sim freezes once the apollo has entered space. I don't know what is wrong as all graphics tests conducted reveals no problems.

I run under windows 7 and also use a laptop with i7 processor, 8gb ram and 2gb internal graphics. Also have DX graphics interface installedand use the orbiter ng.exe to launch.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Quickstart mode.

As soon as I go into outside view to watch the staging she freezes up.

Does it permanently lock up, or is it more like a stutter?

Do you have an Orbiter autopilot on when you perform undocking?

Oh, right, during launch, my apologies. >.<

I'm kinda confused—unless the autopilot for that mode has been deprecated, I'm not sure.

Try vAGC, and see what happens.

Also, which exact scenario?

Same deal.  The issue is when in external view and just after staging when entered in space. The scenario is Apollo 7 quickstart

What happens when you keep it interior?

And you used the downloaded files; no source code builds?

Problem solved  Cool. The problem child is in the sound module configuration.  Disabling the "play a mp3 when in space and in external view" will fix it as there is no mp3 in the folder to play.  Thumbs Up

So when the S/C was reinitialized during stagings, it tried to call for the MP3 again when it wasn't there?

That's correct.  It is an Orbiter issue though. It happens when going into external mode where it is trying to find the mp3 file.
