Multitasking not possible

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Ever since applying the hotfix to P3Dv3.3.3 I cannot "multitask" anymore. In v3.3.3 it was possible to have, for example, Internet Explorer and Notepad running besides P3D and type messages in Notepad, but after applying the hotfix this no longer is possible. While, for example, typing a message in Notepad P3D every few seconds is getting the focus again making it impossible to do something else in other running tasks.

Can there be something in P3Ds settings that might have unintentionally been changed? If so, can you give me a hint as to what this may have been? If this phenomenon came hardcoded with the hotfix, would a return to v3.3.3 be possible by just uninstalling/reinstalling the client and content?

 

Thanks,

Hans 


Kind regards,
Hans van WIjhe

You could enable "Pause on task switch" which would pause P3D when you do something else, otherwise, when P3D needs the focus, it will take it.

Ordinarily, that's not happening with 3.3.5.17625 out of the box. Perhaps some odd interaction with an external app or addon exe.

Thanks, Steve, indeed an external app was the culprit here.

But of course. The offending app, as a matter of fact an add-on, is the latest update to Flight Sim Commander. (The May build). Going back to a previous version solved the problem
