For ages I had issues with the original IL-2, ROF, Call of Duty and a-10 crashing to desktop and it ended up being a CODEC setting for FFDShow. Putting my games on an exclusion list and it solved the problem.

Touch wood, I'm haven't had the CTD issue in CoD
I Have not had CTD problems with those other games and I have run them on several different systems over the years.

I have had 2 hour flights in custom Scripted COOP missions in COD but that is rare. That was hosting in MP but noone joined, so I was by myself although in MP mode. When our squad does hook up with 3 or 4 others in MP, The CTD is inevitable 30 minutes in...almost every time for me. A little less frequent for my squad mates, but it happens eventually.

BTW for the majority...we should not have to restart COD after every mission.... If there are truly some out there that have no CTD issues with COD... That is just wonderful and amazing...but hard to believe.

ffdshow? The below description is from their site....

"ffdshow tryouts picked up where ffdshow left off and is a DirectShow and Video for Windows codec with support for a wide range of audio and video formats, such as Xvid, DivX, and H.264. It includes a powerful filter set that can enhance the video quality - with filters for resizing, deinterlacing, and displaying subtitles - as well as audio quality through normalization, down-/upmixing, and resampling."

I have never tried this. Maybe there is something to it?

I have also been trying out Game Booster 3 from iobit lately with mixed results...needs more testing. It cannot hurt to free up your resources.

IMHO...we should not have to jump through hoops to try to make this Sim work. But we do try...because we want it to.

Meanwhile...still waiting for the "patch of the Future" to see where it puts COD.
