Connection to P3D V4.2

Recommended Posts

Updated to 2501.  Load a flight plan from PFPX.  Connect to FS - power button is green - reads that sim is connected and recognition engine installed - grammars loaded.  File flight plan. I wasn't hearing chatter so I disconnect and reconnect - power button is green - reads that sim is connected and recognition engine installed - grammars loaded.  But then PATC disconnects - power button turns red.  After that I can't get PATC to connect w/ FS.

I tried restarting P3D and even reloaded 2501.  I also rolled back to the 2500 update w/ same results.  Per the manual it appears a full removal/reinstall wouldn't help.  Thanks.

This sounds like something is interrupting the FSUIPC operation.  If on WideFS, it could be a network issue.  If running on the same machine as P3D, I would suggest reinstalling the latest FSUIPC, especially if you are on the latest version of P3D.

Finally, if it is connecting but the Power indicator is Red, you may need to check the options to "Ignore Battery Switch" and "Ignore Avionics Switch".  This varies from aircraft to aircraft, but leaving them checked for all aircraft will work.

I have PATC on the same machine as P3D.  Currently running V5.124.  'Ignore Battery Switch' and 'Ignore Avionics Switched' already checked.  One note -after PATC disconnects and the power light is 'red' the 'Connect' button is not green.

I just reinstalled FSIUPC.  Same issue.

One note - last night as I was testing I noticed that what was happening every time was now happening more on an intermittent basis.

This sounds like an FSUIPC connection issue.  I don't know what could be causing this.

When P2A senses that FSUIPC or XPUIPC is no longer responding, it disconnects by itself.  This feature was added so that when a SIM crash occurs or something similar, a fresh connect is required...otherwise, P2A becomes confused and has all kinds of issues.

If this is the case, there should be a message in the P2A log file along the lines of:

FSUIPC/XPUIPC stopped functioning and P2A is Disconnected.

Regards,

Dave

I believe I found the issue.  When connected, if I push the 'pause' button and the clear the 'pause' button - and then disconnect P2A and try to reconnect the issue happens.  I have replicated it a few times.  Attached is the log w/ a successful connection/disconnection/connection and then the issue after pressing the pause button.  I can assume the pause button does just that, but on page 72 of the manual when this area is explained there is no pause button - I assume it is from a previous version.

Thanks - Chuck

Chuck,

Thanks for the follow-up.  I will look into what's happening and get it fixed for the next update.

Found the bug causing this.  Recommend you don't use the Pause button as a workaround.

Thanks,
