Vox with P3D 2.5.12945

Recommended Posts

Sorry guys but can anybody help me?

 

Have read previous posts about VOX and P3D 2.5 having some issues but still can't get mine working.

 

I have never used VOX before and have P3D 2.5.12945 installed as my only simulator and trying to get VOX 6.5 to play (I know 6.51 has issues when P3D is only simulator installed hence using 6.5). All seems to go ok until I try to load VAPanels then it just crashes with VAPanels has stopped working message.

 

Have kept checking the forums and emailed the developer about a week ago but had no response as yet.

 

Any help will be much appreciated as I'm really looking forward to using this programme.

 

Thanks in anticipation

 

Ian

Just a thought here - although it applies primarily to those FSX users who at some point altered their Uiautomationcore.dll files by deleting or renaming so that they wouldn't have FSX crashes.  I've found that many applications require these - including the new VoxATC setup utilities.  Once Voxatc is installed correctly - the UIautomationcore.dll can again be renamed to prevent fsx crashes.  The dll is only needed to run the various setup utilities, and Vox will run with FSX with these files again disabled.

 

Just thought I'd mention it in case you used to use FSX and have those dll's disabled.  If so - make sure both the system and system64 files versions of UIautomationcore.dll are restored during install of Vox (and any other programs that mysteriously have stopped working).

Jer29, thanks for the tip but managed to get hold of Tegwyn who sorted the issue for me. Thanks again anyway.

What was your solution? 

 

I am trying to install 6.51 into prepar3d 2.5 -- when I run the VAPanelSelect to set it up it crashes. 

 

I am about to give up.

I thought 6.51 was just for FSX-SE. 6.50 is for FSX and P3D.

I've downloaded the latest version on the website which I assume is 6.51 and compatible with FSX, FSX-Steam and P3D

Do you have My Traffic 6 installed by any chance?

Yes.

Ok, I had the same problem. Go to C:\Program data\ Lockheed Martin\Prepar3Dv2\simobjects.cfg         When you go down to the entry for the path to My traffic 6, you will notice that it has quotation marks. Remove the quotation marks and run the panel installer again. That should do it.

Hi OmniAtlas,

 

You seem to have the same problem as me! I contacted Tegwyn and problem for me seems to be resolved by doing the following...

 

1, If you only have P3D installed then Vox 6.51 doesn't work, you need to use version 6.5

 

2, Then go into c\programdata\Lockheed Martin\P3D v2

 

open the file simobjects.cfg

 

Find the My Traffic entry which will be something like

 

[Entry.9]

"Mytraffic6\Mytraffic\Aircraft" and remove the quotes from around the entry and then save the file.

 

3, Then open the file prepar3d.cfg in C\users\your user name\Appdata\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\P3S v2 and find and change

SimObjectsPath.9 "MyTraffic6\MyTraffic\Aicraft" entry and again remove the quotes. Save the file and exit.

 

Run the indexer again.

 

Now your entry may look slightly different to mine depending on what drive you have saved to but this worked for me so hope it does for you too. I have tried to attach the 6.5 file for you but for some reason it won't attach but if you look at some other posts on this forum about this problem it is there as that's where I got it from!

 

Cheers and good luck..

Ok, thanks for the help - I will give it a go and try again tonight. Do you have drop box for sharing purposes?

 

Edit -- found 650 available to download here -- http://voxatc.net/650/

Finally got it working, downloaded 6.50 and removed the quotation marks as you all mentioned above. 

 

Very strange that these tips are not mentioned on the main website, or fixed up in an update! 

 

Thanks again.

I guess I am giving up on Vox. How can they offer a current program that says it is compatible with P3D, and you download it and it won't install, and their are other things that need to be done for it to work? I never could find Simobjects path 9 on my P3D 2.5 with My Traffic installed, so I am going to look for another ATC program.

The mistake with simobjects is not the fault of VOX, it's the My Traffic 6 installer that causes the problem. The path for the simobjects.cfg is listed in two previous posts above. Proflight Emulator works fine with P3D.

I guess I am confused. I have P3D, new install and a new install of My Traffic 6. It seems that My traffic is working fine. I looked in the  prepar3d.cfg in C\users\your user name\Appdata\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\P3S v2 and cannot find an entry like this "SimObjectsPath.9 "MyTraffic6\MyTraffic\Aircraft"  . So should this line be inserted in the cfg file, and if so where exactly should it be placed in the  in the PrePar 3d .cfg  file?  I guess  I don't understand how My Traffic seems to be working fine, if a line is missing in the cfg file.

I'm not sure that entry has to be in the P3D.cfg. It does have to be in the sim objects.cfg though. I can't access my directory right now to check. If it's working fine, I wouldn't worry about it.

 

PS: I just checked my P3D.cfg. There is an entry for the simobjects path for My Traffic Professional.

Strange, I only have the my traffic entry in the sim objects cfg file. All I did was remove the quotation marks and it works fine - does this disable my traffic?

 

Why does Voxatc require this change?

My guess is Vox has to see it in the simobjects,cfg because VOX controls the AI traffic. The quotation marks must confuse it. I have no idea why it's an issue with the panel utility though.

Hi Mike, 

 

Do you have issues loading voxpop on 64 bit windows? I get an error starting up voxatc when i have set it up with the voice configuration. 

 

On another side note -- how is flying with Qantas Virtual...I signed up but had some login issues, now I am deregistered. :)

 

Regards.

I have not had any issues with voxpop. I don't do anything with it. I did have some issues yesterday with Vox having fatal errors in the middle of a flight. I had to disable then reenable it. Qantas Virtual is a very good VA. Very professionally run with a lot of route options. Give them a try. It's worth it.

I posted on the My Traffic forum and the person that created it says that in 2.5, there is no longer an entry in the P3D.cfg file, only in simobjects.cfg file in the all users Folder.   That being said, I have watched several videos of Vox on youtube, and frankly I am disappointed in the voices that they use in the program which at times seem very hard to understand and don't sound like the ATC that I am used to when I fly real aircraft. I think I will just stick with the P3D Atc.

In version 2.5, your step #3 is incorrect. That is no longer placed in the P3DV2.cfg file.

Well that's a bit strange as there is most certainly a my traffic entry in both CFG's on my set up! Tegwyn requested I sent him copies of both and his solution was to do what I described above which I did. Nothing incorrect about it.

 

I can't say if it's the same on everybody's set up its just what worked for me.

After many days of struggling trying to install Vox on my P3D sim, and emailing them, I get an answer back from Vox. Here is what the email said.  " If you only have P3D installed on your system, download this version www.voxatc.net/650/VoxATCInstall.zip "

 

 

Now why on earth is this not on their website, is beyond me for people with P3D only. Oh well, it cost them a sale, because I purchased Pro ATC and really like it.  I sent them a reply to their email and suggested they put this info on their website.

I agree with you. Tegwyn offers great support, but a little more involvement with customers in forums - AVSIM or other - would save him many emails.

To sum up all the info above, for P3D V2.5 use 6.50 only! With MT6, get rid of the quotes in the entry 9 of the simobjects.cfg in the Program Data folder as mentioned above. Run the indexer. Voila!

 

I was surprised how easy MT6 was to install. The dedicated P3D MT6 manual in the simforums webpage is all you need.

 

MT6 and VOXATC work beautifully together. This is what I have been waiting for: a P3D sim with traffic and an active ATC.

 

A BIG thanks to all the AVSIM members who covers the shortcomings of certain developers.
