    FS9 shuts itself off

    Never happened to me before.
    Flying with PMagenta suite on and suddenly FS9 shuts itself off with everything else working normally, including the fs9 computer.
    It is exactly as if I clicked by mistake on the red X at the right top of the screen. No question asked ..gone..
    Did not add anything recently, did not change to the new builds...

    Any hint captains?

    Flight Sim 9 has done that to me in the past, what I found was, it happened more and more when my video card was overheating. Usually you get a (FS9 Has encountered an error and needs to be closed message) sometimes you don't.

    Just keep an eye on it, and check that you case isn't filled with dust bunnies.

    My old system did it too. It would just go to black screen with no cursor or keyboard control. The only option was a hard boot.

    After I put a box fan in front of the open case it was fine, but I was really pushing that card.
