  1. Frank, I think that teleportation, space/ time paradoxes or wormholes could be the problem 😜 Mike
  2. Phil, yes I found out afterwards that there as indeed a server outage which have a bearing on my problem. Thanks for your input. Frank, I tried your suggestion of signing out and then signing back in, but unfortunately that didn't work. Looks like I've lost a lot of flying hours! Yes, I've also had the "in the vicinity" and 0 landings and takeoffs. I guess over time Microsoft/Asobo will get it right, still early days yet. Just a suggestion, but if you really want to start over again, why not recreate your profile? Many thanks Mike
  3. Hi All, today I sent the following to Zendesk which is self explanatory “When I first launched MSFS today I had a message stating that the internet connection was lost (my internet was working outside of the simulator). I'm not sure if that is relevant but I mention it just on case. I then had a message saying that Content Manager was not up to date, I could not get off this screen so I had to use End Task to close MSFS. I closed down the PC and when I went back a couple of hours later and launched MSFS everything was working fine, lost connection problem had disappeared. I carried out a small flight in the Cessna 172, live weather etc all good. At the end of the flight, this was recorded in the log book, but when I looked more carefully, this was the ONLY flight recorded!! I have lost over 70 hours of flying time!! Is there any way to recover this?? Is there a back up somewhere??“ Has anyone else experienced this? And you have, is there a solution.? Many thanks, Mike
  4. Pranav, it certainly sounds like a hardware problem if you’ve tried everything that I’ve suggested. Ray is absolutely right about contacting the company that you purchased the yoke from. Don’t give up and let us know how you get on. Regards, Mike
  5. This may seem obvious, but have you opened the Logitech control panel and gone to the Programming tab to see if your yoke is responding to the inputs from the buttons/yoke movement etc? You could also try opening devices/printers in Windows Control Panel and check the Properties to see if the yoke is working properly and also try Windows troubleshooting the device while you're there. Maybe you could try the yoke on another PC? I'm just trying to establish if it's a software issue or that you do actually have a hardware defect with the yoke. Hope this helps, Regards, Mike
  6. I found that if you install the Logitech software/drivers available from their site, then you will find that the yoke clock will change to the PC system time and also the yoke will be programable if you wish to change the default button settings. Here is the site address https://support.logi.com/hc/en-us/articles/360024151314 Regards, Mike
  7. Ok thanks for clarifying that Dave, must have me then. It was just a coincidence that on that particular flight I had asked for higher clearance which is something I don’t do all the time especially on short haul. thanks again, regards Mike
  8. Hi Dave, I was wondering if you could clarify something for me. Does P2ATC know what your cruising altitude is? Say for example the flight plan says cruising altitude FL 350 but after reaching this, at some point in the flight you request say FL400, is P2ATC aware of this when calculating your descent? The reason I ask this is because I did a flight the other day but found that I was too high when I was approaching the airport which resulted in a go around. Should I have maybe have asked for descent back to FL350 a few hundred miles out so that my descent would give me the correct approach level as per the flight plan? Or did I just mess up my descent 😛. It would be nice to know for future use especially on long haul. Many thanks, Mike
  9. Thanks for the prompt reply Dave. I've just completed a flight EGKK to LEZL successfully using P2A so I agree with you that it must be the plan. I was thinking also of sourcing the plan elsewhere and trying to import it and if successful with filing the new plan, then exam the 2 together to see if I could spot any differences. Anyway it's good to know that there is a workaround for such cases. It's the first time that it's happened using P2A. I've been thinking more about this, and I seem to recall the odd occasion when I've used P3D for flight planning and crashed P3D with a rogue plan. Thanks for taking the time to research this for me, you offer a superb service, perhaps it may also help someone else if they have the same problem in the future. Regards, Mike
  10. Well it's the next day. I've tried to file the flight plan and now P2A is crashing again. I tried some different gates but still the same happens. Here is a copy of the AppConfig.xml which hopefully you can glean some insight from. https://www.dropbox.com/s/x8gbgue5ycqzd09/AppConfig.xml?dl=0 Thanks Mike
  11. Hi Dave, Well I'm at a loss. I booted up today, loaded P2A, imported my plan. Loaded P3D, same airport EGKK, same gate. Connected P2A to the sim, validated and filed and everything was fine. I tried to think of anything that I did differently from last time. I remember when I wrote to you that I had opened P2A first and was studying the flight plan before I loaded P3D, whereas this time I had the sim already running before I validated and filed, so I tried both ways and the plan filed either way. Last week I had the simulator set up to fly the plan in July 2020 (it's where I'm going on holiday this year and I wanted to fly the route under the same conditions) Today I tried just using today's date just in case time was an issue, but the plan still filed ok either way. So I can only conclude that a fresh reboot was all that was required, maybe it was just one of those quirky things that happens sometimes 😕 Tomorrow I will fly the plan and see what happens. Many thanks for all your help, Mike
  12. Ok thanks Dave, I’ll carry out all your suggestions and report back tomorrow. Wife will shoot me if I do any more experimenting tonight 😜. Seriously though thank you for a fantastic service. Regards,
  13. Dave, I do have calculate safe enroute altitudes checked, but this wasn’t just a delay, the little blue circle whirled around for about 30 seconds then the program just disappeared altogether from the task bar and had to be restarted each time. Mike
  14. Dave, thanks for the speedy response. Not sure what you mean by procedures? I’m away from my PC at the moment but I believe that I have P2A set up to add the sids and stars automatically to my imported plan in the config menu. I’ve never ever used Autoplan is this what should be using? Many thanks Mike
  15. Hi Dave, I've been using your program for about a month now and am very satisfied with it. So far I've had no problems whatsoever. I think personally that it is the best ATC product available on the market right now especially with the voice interaction. Today I tried a flight from EGKK to LGTS but after validating the plan every time I tried to file it, it caused the program to crash. P3D continues running ok, it's just P2A that disappears. I use Simbrief to create the plans and import them into P2A. I've made sure that my Navigraph cycle is the same for Simbrief/P2A/PMDG so there should be no disharmony there. I'm using P2A version 2.6.1.1_64 _R3 by the way. I only realised to today that I had been using R2, so I updated to R3 hoping that there might be a bug fix. I tried an earlier EGKK flight plan and that loaded ok so I'm thinking that it could just be EGKK/LGTS plan that is faulty in some way. I tried revising the plan but this made no difference. I've attached the last 3 log files and a copy of the flight plan. I hoping that you might be able to tell me what's wrong with the plan just in case this happens again at some future point, but also it might help you eliminate this happening in the future if there is any revision that needs to be fixed in P2A. https://www.dropbox.com/s/r11yay0tkb8y7i1/P2A_2018_Trace_File3.log?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/0xh770gvicnpneq/P2A_2018_Trace_File4.log?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/qxp5gqayavg09b9/P2A_2018_Trace_File5.log?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/hawrha70swufm90/EGKKLGTS_FSX_19Feb20.pln?dl=0 Many thanks, Mike
