Nope, I posted it on Sunday, seen other questions come and go and still haven't got a single response yet. Rather disappointed. Especially since that's the only way you can get support.

I checked the Flytampa forums (Since my YSSY from them has the same issue). They said they are aware of the issue or something along those lines.

Try deleting your prepar3d.cfg and letting it rebuild. I know this is a tired response to every issue but this has worked for me twice now when encountering this issue. I have no idea why it happens in the first place, though.

I started running into this problem again today, and did some more testing, finding that for whatever reason, rebuilding the CFG seems to fix it on my system. But then it breaks again. The P3D team really needs to figure this out. It's been a bug for at least two years, based on past forum posts. I can't keep wiping my settings over and over and over and over again.
