Remember the three "R" 's of computers -

 

When all else fails - Reboot - if that doesn't work - Reinstall and if that doesn't work - Rebuild

 

actually there is a fourth - Rant!!!

Well, I woke up this morning, fired up good ol' "Sim" after a night of head-scratchin' and guess what came back.... yep, good ol' "possessed Polly"!!! Same thing happening all over again. So I took your advise on the post above and employed step #4 - RANT :t0116: . But that didn't seem to help much. So I created a new step of the four "R"s and made step #5 - REVIEW.

 

Thinking to myself what was happening thought it appeared the aircraft was going through and Auto Startup and Auto Shutdown. Doubled-checked all the default buttons and axises in P3D to make sure they have all been deleted since I use FSUIPC. I then went through each piece of hardware and DISCOVERED my Saitek #1 throttle quadrant had a loose connection. For those not familiar with Saitek's Yoke, the throttle quad that comes with it uses an old-fashion mini-din6 (like AT keyboard connections). Due to my cockpit layout I have a mini-din extension cable in-line, and though it was connected it was loose.

 

And I just happened to assign Auto-starts on some those Quad buttons and Fuel Run/Cutoff on a couple more. Apparently, the loose or intermittent connection was causing the quad buttons to cycle through all the assignments continuously via FSUIPC. So I was getting not stop starting/stopping and FSUIPC was freaking out as well.

 

All it took was good snug "push" shut of those connectors and everything went immediately back to normal. Yea, I can fly again! :yahoo: Just thought I'd post in case someone else come across similar issues.

Another mystery solved!!

 

hate it when it's a loose cable, much more challenging when it's random failures caused by rogue code!! LOL
