New version compatibility?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Leonardo is cranking out awesome updates. I hope this is not too early, but what is about compatibility with the new version 1.3b35?.

And, for sure, the new 83 and 88? They will release today, 23.december.

Thank you!

Just testing, the usual key combo doesn't bring up the Fs2crewpanel.

I experienced that also. You have to uncheck and recheck the FS2Crew option in the Maddog Options manager. Dont forget to save. And you have to do this for every version (if you already have the 83 and 88 addon) After this I was able to open the main gauge for FS2Crew.

Unfortunately I had not the time for doing a complete test flight.

Did you try what Rhino said above?  It works for him.

The new Maddog updates will wipe the panel.cfg files clean.

Therefore, FS2Crew needs to be re-added to the panel.cfg via the Enable option in the Leonardo Config Manager.

Please look at the panel.cfg file for your model (you can open it with notepad), and verify you see FS2Crew entries in the Windows section of the "panel.cfg" file.

I'm unable to get fs2Crew to work with the latest Maddogx.  Have tried reinstalling maddog and fs2crew as well as updating fsuipc to the latest.  The failure mode doesn't seem consistent, but the FO eventually stops performing tasks.  I can move or reset using the control panel and get the FO to respond but he won't perform any of the tasks. P3D v4.4

You're following the manual to the letter?

If the FO appears to stop performing tasks, it could be because you're missing a required step.

I believe I am , yes...i see the appropriate commands in the green bar.  The FO responds,but doesn't perform any of the tasks (switches). Im running p3d4.4 with track ir and ezdok.  I noticed as i loaded track ir during an engine start, that the FO hasn't thrown any switches since.

I've been having problems with the FO not responding and not performing tasks long before the latest Leonardo update.  I had to roll back to FS2C version 1.3 as later versions simply do not work for me.

Bryan - Something just isn't right with your latest versions.  I have FS2C for for other aircraft that work fine but there is something amiss in the Maddog series.  I have been able to get 1.3 working most of the time but still encounter issues once in a while with it.  The later versions simply will not work correctly through an entire flight with the FO not performing tasks and not responding.

Rich, 

Maybe loading Track IR causes a conflict?  Try it without track IR.

And ensure you're following the manual to the letter.  That is critical.

This is not a jump in and "wing it" kind of program 🙂

 

Eric,

If you can find me something that I can reproduce consistently, then I can look at it.

But I need to be able to reproduce it with exact steps.

But the changes from 1.3 onward are generally pretty minor.

At any rate, send me something I can reproduce on my machine.

As it stands, I have no issues nor does our beta team.

Flew a lot today.  Without track Ir running I had no issues.  This has always worked fine in the past with other version for Airbus and PMDG 737, so I wonder what the conflict is now?  I think it would be easy for you to see the issue if you have track ir to test with.

well if  it  works without  track ir   and  doesn't with  it,  than the  conflict is  with  track ir

Agreed.  And it always worked well in the past, so I hope this conflict can be fixed.

sure it  will be

No doubt a conflict on my system...  and not on the other fs2crew versions.  I ran track IR after pulling into the gate yesterday and the FO would no longer run tasks.  I did see a brief message flash - something about voice recognition...  I'll see if I can read it in a next experiment.
