    Balloon winches causing CTDs

    When using the mission editor and placing balloon winches, my game usually crashes. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Hi Mat,
    Just tried placing both German winch and damaged winch on a test map and no crash. They are the only winches I could find. Are they the ones ?

    The ones I’m talking about are German Balloon Winch and British Balloon Winch. I can place one with no problem, but after placing a few I usually get a CTD.

    They’re in the “winches” section of the object browser, beneath “vehicles”.

    I usually place 6-10, maybe even 20-30, before getting a CTD.

    hstart and hend are at 2000m each, if that’s a factor.

    20 - 30 is too much, seems the problem is balloon cables - that curiously is "immaterial", don't harm planes, or, are less sophisticated than ones in il-2:46.

    D'oh I obviously didn't scroll down far enuff. Was looking in static objects.

    Ok so I placed 30 Brit and 30 German winches all at 2000m on my Manston Raid map and no ctd.

    If u want u can send me the map u are working on and I will see if it is the map or if it is rather your pc.
    PM me and I will give u my email if u want me to test it.

    Re: Balloon winches causing CTDs

    I've done some more testing, and found that the winches will cause a CTD when placed in a specific area. I'll post the mission in the TF private section, as it's one I'm working on for 5.0.

    Re: Balloon winches causing CTDs

    So did some more testing on 2 different pcs and not only do these winches cause a ctd in the fmb when u zoom in on them but in game they will cause a ctd as well when u fly low towards them. And this is in 4.55.
    There is obviously a BIG bug with these so would advise mission builders to remove them until a fix.
