Reload Lua Engine - Hot key

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Is there a hot key to reload Lua Engine during flight?

Why? Because sometimes it happens to me that during flight suddenly my MCP doesn't respond anymore (shows serial nbr ...)

The only way to fix that is to reload the lua engine.

Problem is that I'm always flying in Full view and with multiple monitors. So After start-up I'll drag my instrument (pmdg 2D, OVH, ..) to my other screens.

For me to be able to reload the lua engine I have to go to windowed mode to access the Linda program.

Result is that after that I have to re-position all my screens again.

I would be grateful if I could just use a key combination to reload lua engine during flight.

Cheers,

Luc

There is not at present. If anything stops responding like your MCP, it is worth opening the Console or inspecting the fsuipc4.log for any LUA error lines.

Hi,

I'm sure that the problem is not within Linda or the PMDG module. It really happens sporadically, but when it happens, usually during approach :-( then it can be somewhat annoying ;-) . I'm using Tileproxy and other add-ons (weather) while flying and somehow somethings goes wrong with Tileproxy when flying a long time over water. During approach and flying lower Tileproxy has to load a lot of tiles once back over land and there's not much to do about that.

And I'm sure you understand the "hassle" it is going out of full view, the sim is paused because I've to go into Linda, putting everything back in it's place etc...

So would you ever consider to make available a hot key just to reload the lua engine during flight (without pausing)?

Cheers,

Luc

Another add-on I have never heard of! Have you tried operating without Tileproxy?

Hi,

well it's a free add-on made (and not supported anymore) some 10 years ago but I tell you this is really awesome.

Basically what it does it will download and render satellite imagery (photo-realistic) in real time while in flight.

However it does require quite some fine tuning and trial and error and a reasonable powerful system.

As far as I can remember I don't have this problem when not using Tileproxy.

As said, there's no support for this anymore and flying without Tileproxy is most certainly not an option (try it, you'll see what I mean LOL)

Cheers,

Luc

OOPS I missed you're PM, will act on it
