SLX starting P3D with default flight, then loads requested flight

Recommended Posts

My P3D v2.4 has its default flight set to "Default Flight KSEA.fxml" for the Seattle area.


I then go to SLX and create a new flight "Yosemite1.fxml" (departing from the Mariposa-Yosemite Airport) and save it. P3D is not currently running. I then click the "Fly Now!" button.  P3D will first load to the KSEA default flight (with all the Seattle terrain loading), and then immediately after that loading completes, SLX causes P3D to then load the Yosemite flight/terrain/etc (with that SLX message appearing at the top left of the P3D window). This does result in a longer P3D startup process.


Is it possible for SLX to detect that P3D is not running, and if so, then simply launch P3D with my selected flight?  My current workaround is to just save my SLX-created flight, then go to "My Documents/Prepar3D v2 Files" folder, select the fxml file, and invoke a BAT file against it as follows:


    start "" "D:\Prepar3d v2\prepar3d.exe" "-fxml:%~1"

Hi Andrew,


In your case P3D first loads the default flight because you have indicated that your startup program does not accept a flight as a command line parameter. Please select the profiles window and click on 'Edit' on the ribbon. The last setting in the 'Files and folders' group is probably not checked. If you check this setting, SLX will do exactly the same as you do with your batch file.


thanks, Maarten
