Random Failures in P3dv4.1

Recommended Posts


Since I start to fly in P3DV4.1 with the 737 NGX I have no more random failures !

I put 7 failures every 10 hours.

I have flown a lot of times and never have any failures ..

My aircraft.ini files is normaly save after each flight, I have adminsator right so I don't understand the problem

Is there something that you might have changed on your system? Any options in the FMC changed?

I still didn'not find the solution. I have very very very few failure, I fly short fly (about 1 hour and half) and I wonder if the failure does not start at the beginning each time. I start my flight with a saved scenario and a saved panel each time (I have no choice because of my configuration, I use a FMC opencokpit with saved windows), the aircraft.ini failure item is saved each time.

In the aircraft the [Failure Items] Run Timer.0=0.620008  4947388.500000 there is two numbers, the first one change at each flight (it seems to be the timer), the second numbers never change even if I change the failure parametre. Is it normal ?

Your times are very low... 0.620008 is run time in seconds.

Here is a sample from one of my B738 that I fly occasionally:

[Failure Groups]
Run Timer.0=167713.515625
Run Timer.1=167713.515625
Run Timer.2=167713.515625
Run Timer.3=167713.515625
[Failure Items]
Run Timer.0=167713.515625 11750679.000000
Run Timer.1=167713.515625 9182444.000000
Run Timer.2=167713.515625 1826003.625000
Run Timer.3=167713.515625 1983267.250000

In the above sample, that aircraft has accrued 46.6 hours.  I'm not sure why your run time is so low, even an hour should have something greater than 3600 as run time value.

Thank you

I play a lot more than few seconds ! strange

I will check this and made some test to see if my run time is correct. If not what to do ? reinstall all the 737 NGX ?

I notice that run time change only if service based failure is active, otherwise this runtime never change ? is it normal ? does it mean that you need to have it enable to have failure (normally not !) 

Some helps please

edit: I did also a full reinstall of the 737 ngx

Sounds like it could be normal, afterall the run time only counts if you want MTBF style of events. I've only used service based failures.  The random failure feature is not something I've played with, and there's no reason why it  might work in FSX but not P3D.  I browsed the section in the Introduction on setting up failures and the instructions are pretty straight forward on pg 96.  Having not used this feature, I'm not sure how the aircraft ini file is used for random failures.
