Chaseplane no longer working??

Recommended Posts

About a week ago Chaseplane just stopped working properly.  It opens up fine, it finds the correct plane, it even loads in the saved cameras but that is it.  Top hat no longer works, clicking on any camera or using its assigned hotkey does not work.  In the camera screen moving any of the buttons does not work.  I reinstalled both Chaseplane and VFX but still same problem.  Any ideas?

I'm having similar issues. My preset cameras are there, and the hot keys work. But the exterior "pan" function doesn't work with my hat switch, and the button I assigned to cycle through views doesn't respond. This is P3D v3, and I use a Saitek yoke and throttle.

These problems aside, I really enjoy Chase Plane. It's been a great addition, we'll worth the money.

Let me know if the next update fixes the issue. We might have isolated it.

Nothing changed with the update.  It's really strange. If I startup at the default p3d airport it works.  If I move the plane to uk2000 EGLL. It no longer works.  I can't figure out how this is possible but this is what is happening.

Some more info...it probably will not help though.  I have no clue what is going on.

So if I backup and delete the xml.dll then ChasePlane works fine with FSL A320, PMDG 747, Majestic Q400, etc.

If I add back in the proper dll calls in the file then it does not work, unless of course I setup in Mexico (or generally in North America) then everything works properly.  Setup in England and boom, not working.  I give up.  I have carefully checked my xml.dll in both the ProgramData and AppData locations, they are the same file now (they were not before).

Another strange thing is when Chaseplane is not working, I cannot open any menu item (like FSUIPC, Addon Manager, etc.).  At MMMX I can open all of these menu items no problem.  It really is as if some other program is "capturing" the window or keyboard or mouseclick before P3D can get it.  Really really strange.

Only thing I have changed recently is to update my ORBX LC to the latest version.

"If I add back in the proper dll calls in the file then it does not work,"

are you adding them back one by one and testing?.. no doubt there must be one of them , then from there would be easy...

I added all at once thinking the xml.dll was corrupt.  I guess I could try one at a time and see what happens.

Since I installed the Windows 10 Creators Update, I am having the same problem!

The first thing I did was restoring back to the Anniversary update, same problem. Later I tried to reinstall SimConnect, same problem.

When I spawn the NGX at FlyTampa EHAM, I am able to use the ChasePlane camera presets and use my Hat switch to move around, but some time after the 20 seconds initialisation, CP and FSUIPC freezes (I can't use my flight controls). If I tried to change presets, the only thing that changes is the zoom of that specific preset. Just like @MarkW reported, I could not use any of the menu items.

In one test flight, I was able to depart with everything working, but at some point, the problem happened again, and my Autopilot just froze while I was in a turn/climb, I could still dail in speed/heading/altitude, but the AP/FD didn't change.
