P3DV5 VA interface

Recommended Posts

Good Morning All

 

Can you confirm the current VA interface will work with P3DV5 or will an update be required.

 

Many Thanks

Need an Update, but once again, no response from VA Support...

Hi all,
Although it's extremely sad and poor how VA is absolutely not replying on tickets, emails, topics etc. Maybe I can hint you guys somewhere into the right direction. I was trying out aviaCDU (well, actually didn't start it up yet, just installed it). I noticed that it made a few different changes in the 747QOTSII_Options.ini (C:\Prepar3D v5\PMDG\PMDG 747 QOTS II) as per below:

[SDK]
EnableDataBroadcast=1
EnableCDUBroadcast.0=1
EnableCDUBroadcast.1=1
EnableCDUBroadcast.2=1
EnableEFBBroadcast.0=1
EnableEFBBroadcast.1=1

It appears that the app is now functioning again. I tested this on the 2.27 build with the latest PMDG update on P3Dv5, so far no complaints.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Yassin KULK

What should we do guys? I didn't understand 🤷‍♂️

Hi @r0xbeat,

Step 1: Go to your main Prepar3D v5 Folder --> PMDG --> PMDG 747 QOTS II (my structure looks like this: C:\Prepar3D v5\PMDG\PMDG 747 QOTS II)

Step 2: Right-click 747QOTSII_Options.ini and click on EDIT

Step 3: Scroll all the way to the bottom of the ini file, and paste the below block right under it:

[SDK]
EnableDataBroadcast=1
EnableCDUBroadcast.0=1
EnableCDUBroadcast.1=1
EnableCDUBroadcast.2=1
EnableEFBBroadcast.0=1
EnableEFBBroadcast.1=1

The last block in my .ini was [Panel State]. So, by adding the above code at the bottom of the file, it should look something like this:

[Aircraft Config]
FixedConfig=
[Panel State]
StartupPanelState=
[SDK]
EnableDataBroadcast=1
EnableCDUBroadcast.0=1
EnableCDUBroadcast.1=1
EnableCDUBroadcast.2=1
EnableEFBBroadcast.0=1
EnableEFBBroadcast.1=1

That should be it. Try to fire up Prepar3D v5 and VAInterface, and hopefully it all works. Ensure that in Prepar3D V5, if it doesn't automatically recognize the aircraft (which I think it should anyways), to select PMDG747 as the aircraft.

Good luck!
Regards,

Thanks YKULK, well explained 👍

Hi @r0xbeat,

More than welcome. Maybe interesting to let everyone know if it works for you too. You'll help the others as well! :D

Cheers!

Hi @r0xbeat,

Hmmmm. To double-confirm, you are on the Prepar3D v5 latest hotfix? And the PMDG is updated to 3.01.0303 or above? They released a new minor update over the weekend that also sorted out the SDK that was broken in the patch before.

Last thing you could try, is that I tested it with VA2.27 instead of 2.28.1.

Fingers crossed, the best of luck!

I'm having a rather frustrating issue.  About 1/2 the time the Interface fails to launch.  Another 1/4 the time it launches but it doesn't connect to the sim.  The last quarter it connects to FSX SE (I'm running P3Dv5).  Sometimes I'm able to get my table to connect other times not.  Even if it doesn connect it doesn't do anything except say its connected as the Profile is set to Default.  Regardless.  After 1 min the Status of the Intervace changes to Inactive and FS goes to Not Connected. 

 

Any input?

I got about 6 more than this.  Each one has different Data.

Further Edit: I checked with P3Dv4 on the 777 still works as advertised only issue I see right now is P3Dv5.

Goodday @r0xbeat and @thibodba57,

I'm sorry that you're still struggling with this. Unfortunately, as goes for everyone, we need VAInterface's official support on a new build to natively support P3DV5. All I can say is that I find it strange that it works on my side with the above mentioned steps, so maybe not all options have been exhausted yet on your side to match my set-up (I don't believe in luck when it comes to software :D). Do note as well that on my PC, the VAInterface.exe also shows FSX:SE (Steam Edition) when connected to P3Dv5, but it doesn't limit anything on my end.

Just to resume the steps:

  1. Are you sure that you are utilizing 2.27? And not 2.28.1? My testing was with 2.27 build of the software, I can't confirm if 2.28.1 works.
  2. Are you sure that you have installed all the SimConnect redist libraries? (Prepar3D Main Folder --> redist)
  3. Are you sure that you have edited the PMDG747 Options.ini file (as per above explanation) properly to include the [SDK] block at the bottom of the file?

If the above is done properly and it still doesn't work, I'm afraid I can't be of any help :(. You might want to check-out Remote CDU/AviaServer (https://www.avsim.com/forums/forum/742-remote-cdu-for-phone-tablet-official-support-forum/) who have native P3Dv5 support since a few days.

Thx YKULK,

will try it again, step by step.

I use the MCP373, so I have no alternatives like for CDU.

Their support just sucks, I mean this is a 600$ item, and u have to wait weeks or even longer for updates, to get it work with new P3D versions.

Hi @r0xbeat,

Totally agree with you. Sorry that I didn't pay attention to the fact that you were using the MCP373. Anyhow, I see @bcrawley57 managed to get it to work, as he mentioned for the CDU, MCP and EFIS controls, so hopefully it should work for you as well.


I just checked the SDK PMDG manual again, and see no other parameters needed in the .ini to enable the broadcasting. Be sure to launch the PMDG Operations Center 2.0 and to check if you have any aircraft updates as well. When PMDG 747 was launched for P3Dv5, they accidentally broke the SDK. It's only with the last version (3.01.0303 for both 747-400 and 747-8 QOTSII versions) that the SDK was repaired again. You can refer to this forum post for more details about that: https://forum.pmdg.com/forum/main-forum/general-discussion-news-and-announcements/pmdg-747-queen-of-the-skies-ii-forum/61108-sdk-changes

I'm really out of ideas otherwise 😞
