P3d unusable - sending a stuck key ONLY in p3d???

Recommended Posts

Fired up P3d 4.3 today. Noticed my trim was runway into nose down position (mapped to up arrow/num pad 8). As soon as I'm in a flight in P3d my entire system is highjacked by what behaves like a stuck key. All windows constantly scroll to the top, and the menus in any application scroll wildly as if I'm holding down either the up arrow or the 8 key.

Through a dozen tests I've confirmed that this only occurs once P3d launches a flight. Killing the program eliminates the problem. It manifests itself in ANY aircraft.

How on earth is such a thing even possible? I've confirmed the program seems to think the 8 numpad key is stuck by deleting it in the slew mode control assignments. Renabling it immediately sends me around the globe.

I really have no idea how to resolve this... it's not a Windows issue or hardware since it's only active when p3d is running. Thoughts or suggestions welcome!

Sounds like something else is mapping to the same key - that can cause some wild things. Try assigning it to another key and see what happens. If it works then you have to hunt down the conflict.

Thanks Vic, been going through those and don't see any conflict/assignment mapped to the 8 key. Cleared all slew commands from both the keyboard and throttle, same result. Seems I have an uninvited mystery here....

I'd planned to hold off on 4.4. Perhaps I'll bite the bullet and go full reinstall 😎

why the slew commands? I assume you are also checking the regular assignments.

Sorry, yes, seems that the stuck key is registering in all modes when p3d is running....
