Prepar3D Issues

#1 Post by AerocraftSean »

It seems with every major update of Air Manager less and less fsx_events and fsx Variables work in P3D.

The following items have stopped working after AM Version 4.0.2

EVENT IDs
PAUSE_TOGGLE
PAUSE_ON
PAUSE_OFF
PAUSE_SET
SOUND_ON
SOUND_OFF
AVIONICS_MASTER_SET
FUEL_TANK_SELECTOR

SIMULATION VARIABLES
FUEL_TANK_SELECTOR

I have tried updating P3D and the program, reinstalling the plugin, uninstalling and reinstalling everything.

The above only works if I roll back to AM 4.0.2

Is this a known issue? Is there any time table on when this is going to be fixed or is something just wrong on my end?

Thanks

Air Manager does not distinguish between events. It is just a string that is being send to the simulator. What the simulator does with it, is up to the simulator.

can you list all the specific issues you supposedly had with each previous update to which you refer ? - - as in which update number, and what exactly - supposedly - then did not work. ?
You indicate that this is a pattern.

At this time I can definitively say that AM 4.0.2 I have no issues with the previously mentioned.

I will try and locate and copy of the install but I believe 4.1 is where FUEL_TANK_SELECTOR for both SIMULATION VARIABLES and EVENT IDs stopped working.

Have a look at your code closely Sean and see what the commonality is in all the things that don't appear to work. It will probably point you in the right direction to look further.

We're all on holiday, so we cannot check until September. But I rather suspect network issues.
