  1. Connection to P3D V4.2

    No worries - thanks! Chuck
  2. Connection to P3D V4.2

    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.

  3. Connection to P3D V4.2

    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. Chuck
  4. Connection to P3D V4.2

    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.
  5. ATIS Chatter

    Not a big deal, but I hear faint chatter in the background of the ATIS frequency. Is there a way to cancel?
  6. I use Active Sky and have it set up in the config menu of P2ATC. ATC assigned runway 13 (KLGA) when the ATIS says RWY 4. I should note that I also use PFPX and it too assigned RWY 4. Maybe this is correct but it doesn't feel right. This seems like a thing that would come up and I searched but didn't find a post. Thanks. Chuck
  7. Reloading v4.2 - How To w/o Having to Reload Add-ons

    Thank you - I did watch this. For some reason even after reinstalling the client, scenery and content I'm still stuck. My next step is to strip it down to nothing and start over - was wondering if there was a way to preserve addons....Chuck
  8. I've searched, but can't find this answer - I may not be searching for the right thing because I would assume this info is out there if it is possible to do. I have P3d V4.2 w/ several add-ons. Today I loaded a PTA file and then began to load Reshade - something happened and now P3d won't open/load. Sits forever. I'm sure something is corrupted somewhere. I have uninstalled/reinstalled the Client and Content - about to uninstall/reinstall Scenery, but I'm not expecting any change. I also have deleted the P3d Config File so it could reload. I expect I will have to uninstall P3d and start over, but before I do is there a way to not have to reinstall all of my addons - I thought I had read that P3d v4+ separated the add-ons for this vary reason - I'm just not aware of how to do it. Any help would be REALLY appreciated!! Thanks - Chuck
  9. No Pause Between Chatter

    I have set up my 'sound' to play from chatter the root folder as follows: C:\Pilot2ATC_2018_x64\Sounds I have checked 'Pause Between File Playback' w/ the number 4. Also, have checked 'play chatter'. Getting plenty of great chatter, but would like to space it out as now it plays one after the other - in the manual it says 'When you have multiple files, you’ll want to check the “Pause Between File Playback” option and enter a number for the maximum seconds to pause.' So I have assumed that 4 would give me 4 seconds between each audio file, but I see that the manual says 'maximum seconds' so maybe I'm not reading it correctly. Any help would be appreciated. Chuck
  10. SWA Heart Livery

    Not sure if this is the place to post and I apologize if not - but I'm guessing since you are the guys who do the liveries you might know where I can find a Southwest Airlines New 'Heart' Livery for a (nonPMDG) standard base Boeing 737-800 NGX w/ Winglets. I use P3D and I've looked for a bit and can't find the correct one. There are many for PMDG, but my understanding is that I need the 'base' model to work w/ my Sim Avionics plane. Thank you. Chuck
  11. Different SIDS/STARS

    This is strange - when using PFPX and importing a flight plan I get different SIDS/STARS. For example, out of JFK PFPX will use SID GREKI5 - P2ATC will use GREKI4. Landing at KLAX - PFPX will use BIGBR2 and P2ATC will use BIGBR2. At first I assumed I had old data in P2ATC - but I have used the Navigraph FMS Data Manager and it shows that both PFPX and P2ATC are on 1803 rev1. Any help would be appreciated. THanks. Chuck
  12. Say It Start and Lost PTT

    Log sent via email. Chuck
  13. On the latest version (2218). Two issues: Flying out of KMSP - in order to get a clearance from Clearance Delivery I have to use the Say It feature to get a response - I then get clearance from ATC. After that I am able to request push, taxi, etc as normal. Secondly, after taxiing (including holding short of crossing runway) and I am given clearance to take off. Once in the air I am directed to the next frequency, but at that point the PTT feature stops working and I am unable to communicate w/ ATC. One note - I have replicated the initial issue (needing to use Say It to get clearance) three times. I have not had a chance to replicate the PTT issue. Thanks!! Chuck
  14. KMSP - wrong departure frequency

    Yes to navigraph - thanks. Also, could you give me your thoughts on my other question - thank you. Also, is there a way to pick back up ATC instructions if they are lost - for example, when I didn't get my take off clearance can I find out which frequency would have been next so I can see if I can continue - that way you can press on and still have ATC vs. either starting over or going dark the balance of the flight.
  15. At KMSP - was given departure frequency 124.7 at gate. Taxi out to 22 - need to hold short 12L - when I get to 12L and hold short I did not get clearance - so I went ahead to assigned runway 22. I was then assigned departure/tower frequency of 123.67 which as best I can tell doesn't exist. I then went to 124.7 to get clearance to take off - my request is recognized but no clearance is given. Lost all interaction w/ ATC after that. Also, is there a way to pick back up ATC instructions if they are lost - for example, when I didn't get my take off clearance can I find out which frequency would have been next so I can see if I can continue - that way you can press on and still have ATC vs. either starting over or going dark the balance of the flight. Thanks.
