Losing connection

Recommended Posts

Installed Simlauncher in FSX SE and all seems to run fine.

My problem is every time I minimize Launcher, the map loses connection with FSX, i.e. it no longer tracks the aircraft.

I can reconnect, but do not want to do that every time.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi ?,

Please follow the forum rule and sign your post with your real name.

I checked just a second ago and it works just fine. When you minimize SLX, SLX stops processing the user aircraft and AI aircraft data to reduce the CPU load (you can't see anything anyway when the window is minimized). When you restore the window, SLX starts a request for data again. It might take a little while before FSX responds and SLX can update the map (depending on how busy FSX is and depending on the number of active AI aircraft). Cycling the 'User aircraft' button and/or the 'AI Traffic' button and/or zooming in and out might help refresh the map.

If you are still convinced it's not working on your machine, please send me the log file ([Documents]\SimLauncherX\SimLauncherX.log) while FSX is still running and after you have minimized and restored the SLX window.

thanks, Maarten
