Linda Causes EZDOK to Freeze

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I have recently purchased the Thrustmaster Warthog for my FSX. After some research I was pointed into the direction of LINDA for assigning the switches for the PMDG aircraft etc. However, I am having a strange issue, where by if I load a flight up in America, LINDA causes my EZDOK to freeze. However, it does not do it when in Europe or western side of the world. 

I have narrowed it to LINDA, because when i load a flight in America all is good until the LINDA pop up comes up saying LINDA is ready to go. After this pops up, my camera in EZDOK is not able to respond. I can still control the aircraft etc, just EZDOK freezes. Also, after this happens, I close down FSX but it fails to close and I have to force the FSX to shut down. 

 

I am using LINDA 2.8.7. This happens no matter what Aircraft I load, either PMDG 777, 737NGX or the default FSX aircraft. 

 

I would send screenshots but I am doing a flight from EHAM to Kilamanjaro but will post screenshots after the flight.

Any advise?

Sam

This is not a compatibility issue I have heard before and I see no reason why there should be a geographical difference. I have never used EZDOK and will have difficulty doing any investigation without it.

 

What exactly is not working? Is it not displayed what you expect or is EZDOK not responding to a button or key input?

Hi There, 

When I load FSX, I select Aircraft and Airport, set UTC Time. Then load flight. Once loaded, the plane loads and then the LINDA window pops up saying its good to go, but then EZDOK will not work. I can not change camera views, or look around. I use the Mouse scroll button pressed and hold to look around. This does not work. I can change camera if I right click and select a camera but still can not look around. I can still control the plane and it moves etc with the Joystick and Throttle. 

I have tried reloading EZDOK but that doesnt solve it.

From my reading the middle mouse button is used to move the viewpoint around. Is it just the middle mouse button that is not responding? LINDA does not interface with the mouse other than in the normal windows manner.

Hi, 

Thanks for the reply, not only the middle mouse button doesnt work, but all of the assigned joystick buttons to switch camera views do not work. Also, when I click on show EzDOK studio nothing shows. I can change view by right clicking and changing it that way. Let me know if you need any more info?

Hi Sam

 

More questions. Where are the joystick buttons assigned? In EZDOK? LINDA actions all joystick button pushes through FSUIPC4. Can you check FSUIPC4 buttons panel and see what happens when a joystick button is pressed? Do the same with the LINDA joystick page open (the button should highlight the button number when pressed)? Did you previously use EZDOK with FSUIPC4?

 

You originally commented that the problem only occurred when in North America but not when in Europe. I don't see how there can be a difference.

Thanks for the prompt reply. I too think its strange that it only happens in the Eastern side of FSX and not in Europe or Western. It happens exactly when the grey LINDA window pops up. Also, that LINDA Grey window does not disappear??

Joystick buttons are assigned in EZDOK and not assigned to anything in FSUIPC4 or in LINDA. On the Thrustmaster WARTHOG joystick, I use the button directly under the red button on the Joystick. Click left and it goes to Camera 1 and click right it goes out Aircraft Cam 1. Then up and down it scrolls through the camera's.

OK. I assume that the grey LINDA box is that which says something like LINDA Restarting do not press buttons. I need to see the error log.

 

Go to LINDA Setup, tick Developer Mode, select Verbose and tick GUI and LUA boxes. Restart Flt Sim, EzDok and LINDA until the anomaly appears. The email me the FSUIPC4.log file to LINDA@awginfosys.net.

I dont think that is the grey box that stays, I can not remember the exact wording. But it is when LINDA first loads and says Linda is loaded or ready to go. Ill try and get a screenshot of the box. Ill also get some error logs for you. 

 

Thanks

After the Ready to Go message appears, LINDA makes no further output to the FSX display. There is something else going on.

 

Various message get logged to the LINDA Console. Errors are highlighted in red.
