New, unpleasant issues in P3D v4

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Last night P3D v4 with CP was working fine. In fact, working great.

Today I saw that Pete has released an early version of FSUIPC for P3D v4. As a long time user of FSUIPC, I was keen to give it a go. I downloaded and installed the unregistered version. I have subsequently removed the DLL.XML entry for starting FSUIPC due to 'troubles'.

Now, when I start P3D v4 and either autostart CP or start CP after P3D is running, two things happen.

  • It takes a long time for CP to start relative to the usual start up time; the 'Initializing Chase Place' message part of startup.
  • Once it starts (CP) it displays the UI, and initially shows the camera shake (Engine turbulence) and may switch views once or twice.

Then, it freezes and no long accepts input (CP) and freezes the camera, even after exiting CP. The camera shake effect also stops. (A handy means of testing if CP is still alive.)

So, I don't know what caused this issue and I'm looking for a means of resetting things and get back to 'Last Night's' situation.

Any help would be appreciated.

Update:

I switched to the non-experimental version and the issues seem to have subsided, although there's a message about version 4 not being supported.

I deleted the camera.cfg first, but didn't help.

fyi

Hey Richard,

We pushed an update today to fix a few issues in this area. Let me know if you are still having issues with the Experimental version!

Regards,

Keven,

Happily, your changes fixed things up. 

It all works as usual (wonderfully) with the experimental toggle On.

Thank you very much.

Super Service!
