P3D Not Saving "Reset Camera on Joystick Release" Config Option

Postby adf714 » Sun Jul 05, 2020 6:21 pm

Hello,

I use my middle mouse to pan the view around via FSUIPC. To get this to work properly, I need to check the "Reset Camera on Joystick Release" configuration option. However, every time I launch P3D, it reverts back to being unchecked. Any reason why this configuration option refuses to save?

Also does not save my selection of "Enable Advanced Atmospherics", but saves most other options such as graphics.

Hello,

What add-ons do you have installed? Are you seeing this on a clean installation?

Hi Rob,

Yes, this has been happening since day 1, with and without addons.

Hi Vaughan,

As mentioned, this has happened since day 1 (no add-ons installed), and persisted as I modified the sim, so I don't think it's an issue there. That said, I use FSUIPC6, ActiveSky for v5, Navigraph Simlink, Envtex/Envshade, SODE, and a few Orbx airports.

Andrew,

Day one , was just one Add-on, FSUIPC, correct?

Just for info:
P3D with no add-ons installed has the mouse option to move around without FSUIPC.

With FSUIPC disabled, the issue still persists. It also happened with my "Enable Advanced Atmospherics" option, which was an issue before I even installed FSUIPC. I enabled it on my first run to test it out, flew in the sim for a bit, and closed P3D. On the next run a few hours later, it was disabled. No addons (including FSUIPC) has been installed yet.

@ adf714 ,

The value:

ResetCameraOnRelease=True

Is ok in Prepar3d.cfg after selecting (checked) in the UI and exiting P3D.

But the value is not read on the next P3D startup and the UI is now Unchecked.

Additionally, once set True in the cfg it cannot be set False via the UI (initial testing result).

Are you seeing the same behavior?
