  1. KSP works fine for 5-10 minutes, then the video card suddenly stops sending any output and my monitor displays "power save mode." Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete brings video back, and I can switch to Task Manager. When I switch back, KSP might be playable for a few more minutes but the video almost always goes out again. I've been playing KSP for a few years but this problem just started happening in February. I suspect it's a Windows or video driver bug because the same thing happens in my current install of 1.3.1 with recent mods removed and in a previous install of 1.3.0 which never had a problem. I can't find a specific activity that triggers the problem. I'm running 64-bit KSP 1.3.1 on Windows 10 version 1709, with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 with driver (current last week). output_log.txt is at Thanks for any suggestions!
  2. Hi I have just bought the game. It is such that my game does not launch, and I do not know what to do to fix the problem. i have tried serveral difrent things such as validating the game, and updated my nvidia Driver, but nothing seem to work. Please someone help me
  3. I am curious if anyone has experience serious performance issues when upgrading to Nvidia 390.65 drivers on Windows 10 64bit. I'd been away a lot in January and only got to updating my windows rig at home last weekend. After the upgrade I experienced some pretty serious performance issues with framerates as low as 10fps in any situation. ie in the VAB, at the KSC screen and in flight. At first I thought it might have been a mod update I did within CKAN but moving to a fresh install of 1.3.1 I still experienced the 10 fps problem. Reverting back to the Nvidia 388.71 drivers immediately resolved the fps issue. I did also notice issues in other games as well. I always use the express install for the nvidia drivers. I'm wondering if it's a driver issue or if it was a driver install issue. I didn't have time to do a whole lot of testing but when I get home this weekend I'm looking to spend more time troubleshooting and I'm curious if anyone else has seen performance problems with the driver versions mentioned. I've googled the update and seen many reports on various games but lots of explanations including the windows creator update. Rig info (from memory): Intel i7 6700k, 16GB Ram, nvidia 980TI, run off SSD on 3x 2560x1440 gsync displays in surround (7680x1440 ksp resolution in fullscreen mode). On the old drivers I get very good fps so the 10 was very noticeable.
  4. How To Check What Crashing My PC?

    How do check what crasing my windows 10 PC computer (my desktop is actually quite old it had 8 years old) I wonder does it's any tool to run to test why my computer had crash very often? Recently I was so furious that smashed it front panel, so hard it felt from rest of PC
  5. Hello everyone. Is the current version of the game with similar performance on masOS vs windows? My install on macOS is running into a few issues, not sure if it's something I;m not doing or that they perform (FPSwise) differently on these platforms. Thanks for your time.
  6. I like the interior overlay concept introduced a while back, but it's kind of annoying how it makes a lot of the cockpit invisible. An alternate setting where the overlay just applies to the transparent windows would be a nice QOL improvement.
  7. KSP Directory Junction Creator KSP DJC is a Windows tool (.NET 4.5) for easily creating directory junctions to a common craft file repository. What is a Directory Junction? A Directory Junction is like a link in your operating system's file structure. By accessing the Directory Junction, you are redirected and accessing a folder at an alternate location instead. Why Use Directory Junctions with KSP? In KSP we have craft and subassembly files stored on a per-game basis. That means that only that game can access the files unless you make multiple copies, which gets very messy. With Directory Junctions you can store all your craft in one location and access them from any game at any time. You can create a craft in a sandbox game and immediately load it into your career game without any file manipulation. Can I Create Directory Junctions without this tool? Yes, however it is significantly more difficult as Windows does not have a graphical method of doing this without external tools. It must be done from a command shell, which means a lot of typing. Why Does DJC require an elevated permission? This is required so that DJC can create junctions in protected locations (such as Program Files). If you are security conscious, I completely understand. You may download the source and attempt to compile it yourself if you wish. Beyond that, all I can do is assure you it is not attempting anything malicious. Do I need to keep this on my computer? Nope. It uses Windows functions to create the junction. Once you are done with it, you don't need it unless you create a new game and/or new install that you want to link. Instructions DJC will not delete or overwrite any existing folder structure or existing directory junctions for your protection. Preparation must be done manually. Browse to your KSP installation folder and open the 'saves' subfolder. You will need to open each of the save game folders you wish to junction and remove the 'Subassemblies', 'Ships\VAB' and 'Ships\SPH' folder (do not remove the 'Ships' folder). You may delete them if they contain nothing of value, otherwise it would be best to simply relocate them temporarily. Launch DJC and select the KSP installation folder by clicking the folder icon. DJC will attempt to find this automatically from common locations (Steam and Non-Steam versions) but if you have moved it elsewhere you may have to do this manually. Choose the location you wish to store the craft files. Locations with existing files are permitted, DJC will not destroy them. Click the Link icon next to each of the craft type you wish to junction. At this point DJC will parse through each of the save game files (scenarios and training will be ignored) and create a junction for any missing locations. At any time you create a new game you may repeat the process (only on the new save game) to have immediate access to your craft.

  8. Hello guys, i'm on windows (10) at the moment. I've bought the game this week + downloaded the latest version as zip. Unpacked it into a custom games folder. Launched the "Launcher.exe". In both user mode as well as admin mode, the game is not able to save any settings i make in the launcher config screens. It generates an error log in "Launcher_Data/output_log.txt" containing the following lines: NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object at CFGFileOperator.saveSettings () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 at SettingsUI.writeSettingsFile () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 at SettingsUI.editorChangedDel (IUIObject obj) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 at UIButton.OnInput (.POINTER_INFO& ptr) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 at AutoSpriteControlBase.OnInput (POINTER_INFO ptr) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 at UIManager.DispatchHelper (.POINTER_INFO& curPtr, Int32 camIndex) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 at UIManager.DispatchInput () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 at UIManager.Update () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 (Filename: Line: -1) ...whenever i press the "apply" or "accept" button. I had no problems testing kerbal space trial version a year or so earlier, nigher on an old and strongly secured windows XP nor on linux. But the buyable version seems to have problems. Any advice? Should i create a certain cfg file at a certain point for it so it has something to reference/connect to? (And could you please extend the debug output to the point were the opening of the file handle fails? Eventually with the name of the file failing to open? It would be helpful...) In admin mode, the systems (and game) runs with no access/software restriction at all. It does not change anything. At least it starts in admin mode. And says it's the 1.3 prerelease... (i was not aware of that, sorry). Should i downgrade to a release version? ========================= Some minutes later... After starting the game and going into the config screen in game, the settings that were seemingly not saved at the launcher screens seemingly were but very well saved, because i now find exactly those settings presetted in the game, except screen resolution / full screen. ...Well: Maybe the question has already become irrelevant...
  9. Hi folks. I've not played Kerbal for ages, and since my last adventure I've upgraded my PC to what is effectively a whole new system. It's a system that should run Kerbal with no problems, yet I'm having the weirdest issue that I've never experienced before in any game. When the game is in focus, CPU and GPU usage is very low, resulting in a framerate of about 20 FPS, even on the main menu. If I watch my CPU usage on my second screen, I can see it sat at about 1%. But, weirdly, if I set Kerbal to windowed mode and switch focus to my second screen, I see framerate skyrocket to about 500 FPS while Kerbal is out of focus but still visible on my main monitor. CPU temperature goes up, as does GPU usage. I've tested every combination of settings (including various V-sync settings, frame locks, SLI on/off, etc) I can think of and the same behaviour happens every time. I grabbed some video footage of this happening to demonstrate my point. Keep an eye on the info in the top left. You'll see it start on 20 FPS while the game is in focus, then shoot up to above 250 FPS when focus is changed. Bringing the focus back to Kerbal reduces it back to a solid 20 FPS once again. Hopefully I've explained the problem. If anyone has experienced something similar or has any idea (no matter how noobish - I may have missed something obvious) what may be causing the system to use no resources to run the game while it's in focus, I'd really appreciate some help! System specs are as follows: Intel i7 7700k @ 4.8 GHz 2 x GTX 980 Ti 16 GB RAM Samsung SSD 960 EVO 250 GB (where the game is installed)
  10. Good evening to you all. I'm sure the answers to this question can be found somewhere on the forum, but apparently I'm not entering the right search criteria. I am running an unmodded 1.2.2 version of KSP and want to know how to accomplish an interplanetary transfer using launch windows and gravity assists. Let's just say my target is Duna. How do I accomplish setting a flight plan from Kerbin SOI to the orbit of Duna?
  11. Looking at the sticky threads here regarding Windows support, the advice is now considerably out of date with KSP 1.2.2 running on Unity 5. Especially: Data Execution Prevention does not break KSP. If it did before, it doesn't now. Turning this off is a bad idea. User Account Control does not break KSP. The installation folder just needs Modify permissions granted to BUILTIN\Users. icacls "%programfiles%\[ksp-folder]" /grant Users:(OI)(CI)M does the job if needed. Steam users don't need to do anything. The Program Files folder does not break KSP. Just needs permissions adjusted as above. Windows 10 does not break KSP. (OK, no one from Squad says that but I keep hearing it from others.) My problem is bad computing advice is being suggested just to make KSP and some of its more esoteric add-ons work, which is unnecessary and just exposes players to computing abuses. And this bad advice is still stickied in this support forum despite it being false. Claw hasn't been active since early 2016 or I'd have sent him a personal message about this. Is there someone else who can verify what I'm saying and edit the Known Issues and Self Help thread accordingly?
  12. Hey, just installed KSP 1.2.2, but for some weird reason, it hangs at start halfway through the loading bar, The stuff it loads blinks at start and goes halfway and stays like this.

  13. I have tried reinstalls of KSP and steam in order to get it too work but i still get the same crash problems. please can anyone help.

  14. Hey everyone, I have a question for you genius modders out there. I have multiple monitors, and would like to have 3 monitors for the 3 basic KSP views. One monitor would be the normal external view. The other would be the map view, and the 3rd would be the internal or IVA view. Would it be possible to mod KSP in a way that allows me to see all these views in different windows simultaneously?
  15. I need load time to go down because I'm having to go down to my basic must-have mods, such as SVE, NFT, SpaceY, RealPlume, and nothing helps. I have KSP 1.2.2 x64 while forcing DX11 using 52 mods. These include UKS, USI-LS, and Stockalke Station Parts Expansion. ATM, Dynamic texture loader, DDSloader, and load on demand are all incompatible or unavailable. I don't know what else i can do. Any ideas?
  16. System: Windows XP, 32-bit, 4GB ram, Core i5 KSP version (Fresh install) Graphics settings: Normal Problem: KSPedia crash in VAB. Constant crashing during Revert Flight.

Launcher.exe does not start (Failed to initialize Direct3D). Question: Because I can not use this 3GB setup in normal use due to side effects, is there any other options to try to minimize memory consumption below 2GB, which seems to be the standard upper limit for any 32-bit software? Maybe you should add this option also to the topic 83211-known-issues-amp-self-help. More info: Later I tried option -force-opengl in 2GB mode and got immediate crash. In 3GB mode it seems to run OpenGL because 3GB option disables Direct 3D.

  18. I swear there was a mod about a year ago that could make windows transparent so that we could see the Kerbals inside. I think it was part of a bigger mod, maybe TextureReplacer or EVE, but I can't find any mention of it anywhere. Help?
  19. On HP EliteBook 8570w, under Linux Mint, the KSP demo works perfectly, but the full version either freezes at some point during launch, or if it does successfully launch, much of the graphical resources are missing from the screen. However, on the same HP Elitebook 8570w, under Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10, both the KSP demo and full version work perfectly. Is there a solution for this or am I simply out of luck with the Linux Mint / KSP combination? Thanks in advance.
  20. I do not know either what is wrong with my brain but all the icons on your desktop appear as if they were smaller. I do not know maybe I should go to an ophthalmologist or just i’m mad? :-) How to fix it?
  21. Hi everybody! I wrote a simple Windows shell script that makes a new vanilla installation of KSP by making hardlinks to an existing KSP directory. This allows you to have multiple installations without actually having to install it multiple times. I use this to have multiple sets of mods without actually installing KSP multiple times. It works well for me. It is designed to be run from the command line. Due to its use of mklink, it needs administrator privileges. Here is the code for it (spoiler-ed because it is kind of long): To use this script: Copy the code in the spoiler above. Paste into a text editor, like Notepad. Save the file with whatever name you want, wherever you want. Select "all file types" and change the part that says ".txt" to ".bat" Open an administrator command prompt. Navigate to where you saved the file using "cd" Type the name of the file. Then, type the location of the KSP installation you are copying (i.e. "C:\Kerbal Space Program"). If this contains spaces, it must be in quotes. Finish the command with the folder of the new KSP installation. Type /? after the name of the file for help. You should now have a second KSP installation, that has no mods. Feel free to modify and distribute this code as you see fit. I'm not super experienced with batch files (I mostly use Python), so any input is appreciated!
  22. non mod related problem

    so I was just wondering if there is a mod or a way to unlock the ksp window ( so that the window options unlock full screen( not just minimize maximize and close) its just realy annoying that I need to press my windows key to get out, wait 3 seconds, find what I need, then press the window, and wait 5 seconds for the game to start up. I am not just talking about resizing the window (beacuse i have a mod to do it, but its not what Im trying to do. an example of what I want is, in the minecraft launcher, you can lock or unlock the window (which allows you to see the windows border and the taskbar) and a locked mode, witch is what ksp has ( it makes it so that the window is can not be resized, other than fullscreening it) my question may be confusing, but I have no other way to ask it.
  23. Since 1.2.1 came out and now we have those awesome see through cutaways of our interiors... can we go one step further and make ONLY the windows see through and have the cutaways as an EXTRA feature when we select it in the IVA vs EVA panel?
  24. With the new IVA cutaway feature in 1.1, I was a little disappointed that we didn't have to option to only make the windows transparent. Using this feature, is it possible to create window-only transparency? If it is, could someone make it?
  25. I'm having a problem where the steerable landing gear on my planes overstresses at the slightest touch, preventing me from launching planes. This happens in both x32 and x64, in Windows. I couldn't accelerate planes at all on the lvl 1 runway, as it was so bumpy that it immediately exploded. Even on the lvl 2 runway as soon as a plane reaches about 100 m/s it overstresses and explodes. Latest attempt the landing gear overstressed as soon as the plane was placed on the runway, before I even started the engines. Any clues what I might be doing wrong, or if anyone else experienced that? Planes are very simple, 30 parts only.
