P3Dv4.2 - Lost Use of Num Pad Del Key

Recommended Posts

I have touched nothing.  It's just stock v4.2 installed.

So, you uninstalled the full v4.1 and installed the v4.2 from scratch. If so, you had to activate your payware add-ons again, right?

1. I have no addons installed.

2. That would depend on how v4 compliant the addon is.

It sounds like if V4.1 is complete uninstalled and later v4.2 is installed in Full via Setup then the NumPad will work as v4.1

So, updating via Client shouldn't be as recommended.

I did a full uninstall/install of p3d and add on's. It seems like it fixed the rudder problem but, when I installed all of Fsdreamteam airports and gsx I lost the right rudder key. Soo it might be from Fsdreamteam.

As I already explained on the FSDT forum:

http://www.fsdreamteam.com/forum/index.php/topic,17411.msg122175.html#msg122175

The problem doesn't have anything to do with GSX or FSDT. It seems it's a bug of the sim that, whenever an application starts (most likely one with a menu), the Enter key on the Num pad will stop working.

It happens also with the Menuitems sample application from the 4.2 SDK and NO other addons loaded.

We already reported it to LM.

You can stay with v4.1 until v4.2 becomes full tested. I had v4.2 with some issues and went back to v4.1 all fine now. New update......new problem (lol)

At the risk of starting up an older thread, I have been having the same issue, and it only crops up when using Active Sky for P3d V4 (Ver 6641). Any ideas on a work around?

Wait for P3Dv4.3 or higher, otherwise stay with v4.1

Also, you can try P3D Forum Support and/or wait to get answers from other Pilots here.

Nope. Not for me. Numpad keys only work in latest p3d if numlock is off

NumPad keys work on any sim but example: P3Dv4.2 numpad keys work different than v4.1

If you don't mind how the v4.2 numpad keys work then you can live with as is. I stay with v4.1 because I prefer the way on how the numpad keys work. I don't like on how the numpad keys work from v4.2

You decide what P3Dv4 version to keep

P3D v4.2 loses numkey views when starting a session.

They work fine for a few seconds until Ultimate Traffic Live initiates and populates the sim with AI traffic.

Maybe this helps pinpoint the compatability issue.

P3Dv4 version 4.1 is the solution
