  1. Richard, Thanks for the log file. It does confirm the issue with the voices. The CereProc voices are not loading...I believe there were 4 different ones. You might check to be sure the installed voices are 64bit compatible voices. I also believe I found the bug that was causing the repeated descent instructions from Center. I will fly the route you were flying to see if I get the problem. Thanks, Dave
  2. Problem Filling Flight Plan

    Jim, Thanks for the files. I wasn't able to duplicate the symptom exactly, but with the help of the logs I did find a bug that may have been causing the File to fail. That will be fixed in the next update. You might be able to get around it by using a different runway on departure or checking the "Force Pilot Runway Selection" option as you build and file your flight plan. The bug I found was related to the SID selection changing. Thanks again for the logs. Dave
  3. Connection to P3D V4.2

    Found the bug causing this. Recommend you don't use the Pause button as a workaround. Thanks, Dave
  4. No response from Atc

    Nathan, I just did the following and was able to get clearance: Put A/C at YMLT Created a VFR Plan to YMML Connect to SIM and listened to ATIS Freq Swap to 118.7 Called Twr with "Honda 1VB ready to copy" Got VFR clearance with radar service etc. as expected Changed to IFR flight plan Did AutoPlan to add procedures Disconnected/Reconnected Filed Plan while listening to ATIS Freq Swap to 118.7 Called Twr with "Honda 1VB ready to copy" Got IFR clearance Are you doing something different? Perhaps selecting 118.7 a different way? If you could send me your P2A log file I can have a look. Please send to admin@pilot2atc.com Log files are located in: C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\P2A_200\Logs where <UserName> is your PC user name. Portions of the path may be hidden by default, so be sure Windows Explorer has Show Hidden Items checked in the View tab. Thanks, Dave
  5. Problem Filling Flight Plan

    Jim, Thanks for the video. It looks like there's an error causing the File function to not work. Could you please send me the P2A log file for the demo flight. Please email it to me at admin@pilot2atc.com. Log files are located in: C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\P2A_200\Logs where <UserName> is your PC user name. Portions of the path may be hidden by default, so be sure Windows Explorer has Show Hidden Items checked in the View tab. Thanks, Dave
  6. Connection to P3D V4.2

    Chuck, Thanks for the follow-up. I will look into what's happening and get it fixed for the next update. Dave
  7. Connection to P3D V4.2

    This sounds like an FSUIPC connection issue. I don't know what could be causing this. When P2A senses that FSUIPC or XPUIPC is no longer responding, it disconnects by itself. This feature was added so that when a SIM crash occurs or something similar, a fresh connect is required...otherwise, P2A becomes confused and has all kinds of issues. If this is the case, there should be a message in the P2A log file along the lines of: FSUIPC/XPUIPC stopped functioning and P2A is Disconnected. Regards, Dave
  8. Richard, If you could email me the log file I can see what might be causing the repeated descent instructions. On the voices, it's possible the program is not able to load the voices you assigned and is having to go to default voices. The log file will show this as well. Log files are located in: C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\P2A_200\Logs where <UserName> is your PC user name. Portions of the path may be hidden by default, so be sure Windows Explorer has Show Hidden Items checked in the View tab. Thanks, Dave
  9. Connection to P3D V4.2

    This sounds like something is interrupting the FSUIPC operation. If on WideFS, it could be a network issue. If running on the same machine as P3D, I would suggest reinstalling the latest FSUIPC, especially if you are on the latest version of P3D. Finally, if it is connecting but the Power indicator is Red, you may need to check the options to "Ignore Battery Switch" and "Ignore Avionics Switch". This varies from aircraft to aircraft, but leaving them checked for all aircraft will work. Dave
  10. ATIS Chatter

    Hi Chuck. There should be no Chatter on ATIS and no ATIS folder in the Chatter file structure. If flying X-Plane, you will need to turn off ATC and turn the Voice Volume in X-Plane to zero. I think they fixed it by now, but there used to be a bug in X-Plane 11 that didn't allow those quiet settings to persist, so you may need to do this each time you start X-Plane. Dave
  11. If there is no current_wx_snapshot.txt file, then you cannot use ASN Weather. You should probably choose NOAA weather instead. Dave
  12. David, Unfortunately there are several issues combined in this thread. If you could send me the log file for the flight where you're having problems and describe the problem you're having, I'll have a look. Log files are located in: C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\P2A_200\Logs where <UserName> is your PC user name. Portions of the path may be hidden by default, so be sure Windows Explorer has Show Hidden Items checked in the View tab. A new one is created each time you start Pilot2ATC, so if you take the most recent one when you have the error, you should have the correct one. Please send it to me at admin@pilot2atc.com Thanks, Dave
  13. Jean, Did you specify the correct folder in the Pilot2ATC Config Wx tab? Did you confirm that the current_wx_snapshot.txt file is in that directory? Does the file have an entry for the airport that you are trying to get weather for? Dave
  14. Map turned off midflight

    Richard, I suspect this is the same internal error of the map control. It seems to happen when the map is being asked to do a lot of drawing and re-drawing. The most common settings that seem to lead to this are having the Map Centered on the aircraft and having lots of AI Traffic showing. Fortunately, this is not a consistent error and hopefully won't recur regularly. Dave
