PMDG 737NGX AND PREPAR3D V3 ERROR

Recommended Posts

Hi, PMDG Team!

 

First, I wish to thank you how quickly put at our disposal the installer for your products for the new Prepar3D v3.

 

Now, the problem (if this is a problem):

After a clean install and after uninstalled P3D v2.5, I must say that apparently everything works fine, except that closing the simulator warns me that there were errors that can be found in the "C: \ Users \ Gerard \ Documents \ Prepar3D v3 Files \ ContentErrorLog.txt "

I put here a small sample of the errors that contains the file:

.............. and so on.

 

Can you tell me, please, if I have done somthing wrong or it's an installation problem, and if you can, explain me how to solve this?

 

Thanks in advance, and congratulations for the great work.

 

Your sincerely,

Gerard-

 

I haven't a clue what it is trying to tell you, aside from the obvious.

 

Can you give me a run down on anything else that you have installed that might interact with the panel.cfg files or aircraft.cfg files for our products?  Any third party apps such as FS2Crew or an ipad app, etc?

 

It is worth pointing out that none of the product files were changed for this update- so we are probably looking for something unusual here...

Hi Rob

 

I'm having this issue too. All I have installed is P3Dv3 and the NGX and T7 packages. It doesn't appear to be all aircraft just a few. Below is the error log I got...

Hi Robert,

 

Thanks for your quick answer,

 

I only installed P3D v3 and then your 737NGX and 777X

I've opened the File: E:\Prepar3D v3\SimObjects\Airplanes\PMDG 737-900NGX WL\aircraft.cfg and it has two [sMOKESYSTEM] sections:

 

This is the partial content of the file that show this:

..............................................etc.

 

Hope it helps to get a clue...

Hi again,

 

My last post was after a short trial flight with the default F-22 Raptor, but after a trial flight with the 777X, the content of the file is different (I have installed 777 Inmersion too, in order to see if it solves the problem)

Hi

 

Having the same problem here plus major loss of click spots in VC!

 

Have only tried 737 so far.

 

Clean install with no other addons except ASN.

 

Applaud for fast installers though

FWIW: I get the same error message and ContentErrorLog. Only 737 and 777 on a vanilla install of P3D v3.

 

And kudos to the team for providing an installer so quickly! Amazing work.

these errors could already be in version 2.5  just you didn't know about them .. because there is not error log

Same error also for me. Clean P3D install, no addon scenery, only 737 base package. Downloded the new installer. I'm not even able to register the product since the dialog doesn't appear at aircraft startup.

Gents-

 

We have reviewed this and the conclusion is as follows:  You can ignore it.

 

There is one error here that we will correct in a future update (the duplicate SMOKE SYSTEM entry in the 900WL aircraft.cfg file).  It is harmless and does not consume any resources.

 

The remainder of the errors logged are the result of Lockheed Martin setting a logging parameter that picks up on a technique that we use to instance gauge processes that take place in multiple places around the cockpit.  (Lighting, etc.)

 

I'm not sure why they flag it as an error- it isn't.

 

As we recommended with FSX- if you aren't a developer we recommend turning that logging off.  It creates more false instances than it does useful information.

I get it also. You can turn off the error logging in the in game settings menu.

Hi Robert,

 

thanks for the update. We will ignore the duplicate and turn the logging off. However i'm facing another problem. Some parts of the cockpit are not clickable. MCP is ok, button clickable, knobs works, but for example no keypad buttons are working on FMC and neither on pedestal.

 

I cannot reinstall since i cannot unregister the product (no access to the menu option on FMC) as I've done in P3Dv2 before installing it in v3.

I solved that problem with the panel by:

 

1) installing all three versions of simconnect as per the included readme file

 

2) copying the v2.5 SimConnect.xml from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2 to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3

 

Apparently no installer had performed that operation.

I would love to copy the SimConnect xml file across to P3Dv3 but I have already deleted P3D v2.5!

 

Is there some other way of correcting the problem??

 

 I simply can't get the PMDG click spots working!!

 

Help please.

 

Cheers

Edwin,

 

The v2.5 simconnect is a red herring.  We never optimized the P3D product line to that version of simconnect.

 

What you NEED is the older versions that originated back with the original FSX/ESP code base.

 

you can find all of them install with P3D v3, but you do have to install them manually. 

 

We are working on a solution to handle this process for you- but it will take some time...  Sorry for the frustration in the mean time.

Hello Robert

 

Thank you for your response.

 

In summary are you saying that even though I have installed all the SimConnect msi's noted in the readme that there are others tucked away in P3Dv3 which must also be installed?

 

If not, then perhaps I am just one of the unlucky ones who will have to wait until your installer is released?

 

I appreciate your comments Robert.

 

Edwin
