Re: P3D V5.1 Crashing

I'm afraid that this Kernelbase error event relates only to AxisAndOhs. The app is in trouble because SimConnect suddenly goes dead - following the simulator crash. You don't have to try and fix that, it is just a collateral event. Unfortunately it tells you nothing about the original cause why the ...

Re: v5 Cloud Flickering

Hello @ll,

on my devel system, the clouds often flash in sync with other white flashing lights, for example the AI beacons. Maybe these sporadic flashes are somehow related? They seem to be more frequent when there is AI traffic around, but not currently in view.

Re: How to separate AI and Flyable Aircraft

Hi, the P3D spec defines the parameter "IsSelectableVehicle=true/false" for the aircraft.cfg file: Learning Center -> Software Development Kit (SDK) -> Simulation Objects -> Aircraft Configuration Files -> [general] and [fltsim.n] That being said, I think that the parameter doesn't work in...

Re: Random engine shutdowns

Im having random engine shutdowns. Are you using Carenado models as AI? Or do you have an addon that potentially creates them as AI or as static models (WAMA, LorbyLiveTraffic, possibly AirHauler)? If Carenado aircraft are created in the sim other than as your own vehicle, they pull the Mixture to ...

Reasons for Exception 22 with ATC SimObjects?

Hello @ll, one of my addons is creating ATC controlled aircraft, using flight plans of various degrees of complexity. I am getting a large number of exceptions "22" when using "AICreateEnrouteATCAircraft" and "AICreateParkedATCAircraft". - It is not the aircraft model. ...

Re: V5: (Default) Fire and Smoke effects broken

Hello @ll, unfortunately this issue has not been fixed in 5.0 HF1. Changing the default effects parameters may partially mask it, but we are not using those. Besides, you can still see it happening in the default effects too. The issue is, that the color cycling from "Color Start" to "...

Re: SimConnect_Text Freezes v5

Hi, I ran into the same problem, looked like some kind of race condition to me. Are you updating the text very frequently, for example every visual frame, while setting the display timeout to "indefinitley" (0), or can the update happen while the previous text is still up? If you do, slow ...

Re: Setting up camera intrinsic parameters

Hello, you will probably not be able to solve this with CameraConfiguration assets. Take a look at the Observers instead, and how they are managed with a SimConnect client program. I think that they have a few of those parameters that you are looking for. But you will have to make assumptions about ...

Re: New dynamic lights parameter missing in Doc

Hello simbol, So there they are. OK, but I was talking about the description of the .fx file further down on the page. That they are on a tab of the Visula FX tool is great, but it would still be nice to know where those parameters go in the .fx - especially when you have a lot of effects that are e...

IsSelectableVehicle no longer working?

Hello @ll,

title says it all. The "IsSelectableVehicle" in the aircraft.cfg doesn't seem to be working in V5, all vehicles are always present in the vehicle selection dialog.

V5: (Default) Fire and Smoke effects broken

Hello @ll, initial tests in P3D V5 showed colored artifacts over our fire effects. So we checked out the default effects, and they show the same problems. This is a screenshot of the default fx_ForestFireMedium effect: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49780140132_e92b43c457_o.jpg Is this somethin...

Re: Open documents in VR prepar3d natively

Hi, Question: can you open the P3D kneeboard in VR? (I really don't know). If you can, maybe the freeware Lorby Scratchpad can help. The app comtains an editor for the P3D kneeboard (which is in HTML format), and with a bit of work you can add your documents there. Best regards Oliver Binder Lorby-SI
