New thread for the DCS World 2.5.x Change Log Announcements! Woo! :slight_smile:


How severe is the memory leak? Does it take extended time to become noticeable?

Don’t think i’ve noticed it at all, yet. Seems to be confined to MP, IIRC.

I’ve only experienced it on multiplayer servers with lots going on, and on the new map.

I wonder if the old crash on exit in VR bug was reintroduced with this hotfix…?
I have had some crashes when using deferred shading and the old trick of deleting the sceneVR.lua (the VR hangar) seems to work.

I’m not using VR but I’m getting crashes if I run a mission through the editor more then once or twice after this update.

YeS!!! I love flying the F-15 and the green dot, while not a deal breaker, is quite annoying. I love that ED is listening to its customer base and popping out fixes quite frequently.
