Weird, you usually only need to "Run As Admin" on the first run after install (this creates the directory under c:\ProgramData and usually with the correct security settings, possibly running the first time as non-admin could cause this directory to be created with the wrong security settings).<br /...

Hey Guys,<br /> <br /> The limitation is in the "AI Pilots" themselves, they are currently designed for commercial airliners and GA aircraft (there are also "pilots" for ground vehicles, boats, etc) and have specific limiations on things like max pitch/bank/airspeed/turn rate/etc. The "AI Pilots" do...

Actually, its a completely different issue :-> In this case, its related to addons that create one or more menu items, SimConnect and the menu system were having a little fight on shutdown.

Also depends on which model placer tool you are asking about. There's the Object Placement Tool (OPT) included in the SDK and also used to create missions, which is pretty much unchanged since FSX-SP2/ESPv1. Then there's the Model Placer tool available from the Products menu above, which is a comman...

We have found an issue with SimConnect addons that create menu items causing a crash on exit (well, actually its the menu handling code causing the crash, not the addon :-> ), which is probably what you are seeing with EZCA (shutdown order changed a little and a subsystem went away earlier than it u...

Hi Steven,<br /> <br /> At the moment, the External Sim subsystem doesn't provide access to the collision or crash systems. What exactly were you wanting to have happen within P3D when you sent the crashed event? Or were you expecting P3D to send you a crashed event? Just want to make sure I'm clear...

Hi sxa,<br /> <br /> As to creating .AIR files, they aren't created from the aircraft.cfg file, that is a seperate file required for a valid SimObject. There are some data items that can exist in either the .AIR file or the aircraft.cfg file (the .cfg file will take precedence if both available). To...

Hey All,<br /> <br /> I don't think this was specifically mentioned in the "what's new in v1.2" list, but the learning center docs related to this have been updated, so you can read more there.<br /> <br /> We added a new command line switch to v1.2, the -cfgdir:d:\path\ switch.

Hey Bill,<br /> <br /> It appears that, for the most part, custom events are handled just like the built in ones. The main difference is that the string for a normally named event (KEY_Xxx) is sent through a hash table to convert the name into an event enum value, while a custom event string (0x1100...

The network config files can live anywhere, be named anything. P3D doesn't look for them by default, you have to provide a command line switch to cause the network config files to be read:<br /> <br /> Prepar3d.exe -net:c:\IGConfig\studio.cfg<br /> <br /> Assuming the file is located at c:\IGConfig\...

If you have command line parameters with spaces in them, they must be wrapped in double quotes, so your command line should be:<br /> <br /> Prepar3d.exe -net:"d:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3d\IGMaster.cfg"<br /> (note the double quotes around the filepath/name string)<br /> <br /> There's also no reason...
