Sorry to undust...

After few flights with 744, ive noticed the issue is still there:

-  Using PMDG 748/748 When clicking the Immersion Manager Icon, it still say nothing (Open/ Disconnected/ MSG: Load the simulator with a supported aircraft)...   So no way to modify things...   Sometimes effects work well, sometimes no effects at all.  Is this normal?   Always say Disconnected.

- Sometimes the immersion manager is "Connected" and i can modify things.   Perhaps during some flights i have no effects at all and in order to restart contrails and other effects i start by  killing the Immersion manager, then clicking on EXE file again, and begin tuning settings and clicking save which helps recover effects back...   Some of those by clicking Off and on....

- Again, tested with B77W(which im flying now) and i have the same problem.   Manager is not connected, effects were not working and i kill the manager and restart again.  Miraculously effects came back but manager still say:  Disconnected...  Load supported aircraft...

Sometimes i can see effects option in the manager, sometimes are not there and seems to be disconnected.  Definitely a deep review is needed.  Note that ive unistalled and reinstalled VFX and still happening.

Thanks for support

See IMG from PMDG 773 everything fully updated (VFX, 773), even reinstalled before this flight...  And still happening:

You can see a shot during takeoff, no effects, and manager not connected to a supported aircraft (Ok, lets blame weather condition, but no effects at all ever?).   But if you close/reopen it will work/get connected (sometimes), and modifying settings in it, you can get effects back on...

Also noticed that 747 options(while flying the 747 of course) are not present, all you get is the unistall button, and everything greyed out... no options.    I did try this with the B77W which in flying now, and surprise! appears the DIRECT INSTALL button in blue (Different from image above, during same flight), so....sometimes working, sometimes is not....  May be a "closing/opening things to get it work" side effect?...  mmm

Txs for support

I have to join the discussion, the immersion thing sometimes works, most of the time it doesn't, like now, took off, and then 15 min after, immersion CTDs. It happens more often than not. Restarting the program, it won't show any effects. It also crashes randomly even if it not used at all in the sim. Just my 2 cents.

We just published an update potentially addressing the issue you had. Let me know if you still have problems with the latest version.

You will get a notification when launching the sim about the update.

I cannot use the manager if I start P3D exit and then start it again...

I just had this crash of the immersion manager:

I'll join this party as well, only noticed it yesterday, selecting the 747 and no Immersion manager working, have to manually restart the immersion manager to get thinks to work, connection seems to be missing for the Immersion manager to recognise the PMDG747😕

 

Cheers Rod.
