Re: ATC window greyed and not active

I will try loading from this same default flight and then changing the aircraft every time I do a flight to see if it makes any difference.

Re: ATC window greyed and not active

I don’t know.....it’s completely random. All I know is that I have always been using the sim this way and the only thing that’s changed is I am using P3D 4.2. I’ve used every version since 2.5 and never had this problem. Others are reporting the exact same thing.

Re: ATC window greyed and not active

" This flight is then loaded as default when P3D loads allowing you to change the aircraft to any other and go through the startup procedures. This works fine for a few flights and then suddenly the ATC window will be greyed out." Which aircraft do you change to to do the startup procedure? What I ...

Re: ATC window greyed and not active

"If I save a new default flight with no engines running so I can follow cold and dark startup procedures it will eventually break the ATC window." Which aircraft was it? I always save a cold and dark flight with the default Mooney Bravo. I use a default aircraft before I change to anything else. Ev...

Re: ATC window greyed and not active

I was able to go 4 days and 2 different flight sessions and then the grey ATC window has returned. The only way I can get it back is to delete my saved flights (all of them) and have P3D load the default flight with the F-22 at KVPS. If I save a new default flight with no engines running so I can fo...

Re: ATC window greyed and not active

I am experiencing the same. Saved a flight yesterday after landing at the airport so I could resume from the same parking spot and save my panel state. I loaded that same flight again today and the ATC window is grey and doesn't allow me to choose any options. I thought as you did that it was from f...

Re: Lost Ability to Pan Around Cabin/Exterioir - SimConnect Applications

I have never used / installed chaseplane ...and have same problems ....so i think its not chaseplane software. I should have specified. Uninstalling ChasePlane fixed the issue with not being able to pan with the hat switch. The num pad issue still remains. It’s a SimConnect issue so I suppose it co...

Re: Lost Ability to Pan Around Cabin/Exterioir - SimConnect Applications

Rob, Thanks for the tip on the SimConnect applications. I was not able to pan the view with the hat switch even though it was assigned that function. After your tip I closed ChasePlane which I was using and the panning function returned. I am going to do some more testing to see however I believe th...

Re: Lost Ability to Pan Around Cabin/Exterioir

I have the same issue. I cannot own the view using either the hat switch on my yoke or the keyboard. When I go into spot view the view is centered on the rear of the aircraft. When I try to pan using the yoke or Keys the view fights any inputs and jerks back toward the rear view each time.

Re: Huge airspeed loss and autopilot disc. on day/dusk change. Help pls

I believe I have determined the cause to be the Airfield Lights Toolbox add-on by Don Grovestine. I disabled the add-on and the problem went away. I believe there is an influx of SimConnect data from his program happening during the day/dusk transition and that causes the issue of out of control fli...

Re: Huge airspeed loss and Spin on day/dusk change....

I see that someone has already posted about this same issue....I have also experienced the same and have done some testing. I just posted this in the AVSIM forum but since it seems like a P3D bug I am posting here as well: -------------------------------------------- OK! Here are the results of my t...
