new pe client for p3dv4.3 and endless crashes ( old and new

Postby pkofman » Thu Aug 09, 2018 7:09 pm

I am running p3dv4.3 with the old client,.for some reason the sim crashes after 30 + minutes ( consistently)
I tried running the sim without the pe client and it works for about 2 hours with no crashes,( i have not tried longer)

Any ideas on why the sim would crash????

I also tried running the new pe client but only got so far as i cant set the ptt, it says i have to set the ptt but it freezes and wont let me

Any ideas on all of this

Peter, can you remove (or change the extensions) on h the vip.sms and sb.sms files from the C:\program files (x86)\PilotEdge\aircraft folder of the old client and see if you still have the stability issue?

Regarding the new client, there are no known issues with setting the PTT. The process should be straight forward...go into settings->PTT, click the "set new PTT key or button', press the desired key, then hit "OK".

Where is it freezing for you during that process?

Thanks kieth
I’ll try changing the file stuff as per your instructions.

On the new client I was trying to reset the ptt but when I hit change ptt key the ability to select a new key disappears
So I am unable to select any new keys
I’ll try redownloading and start again.
I’m running w10 x64 and p3dv4.3
Thank you. Peter

Peter, that doesn't sound right. Look carefully in the 'set PTT' use interface in the new pilot client. When you click 'Set new PTT Key or Button', the that button is replaced with a "Cancel" button, and the caption says, "Waiting for button or keypress".

Once you hit the button or keypress, the screen returns to its original state, showing "Current PTT Assignment" followed by the selected key or button on the next line in BLUE.

What are you seeing that is different than above?

Keith can you clarify this part "on h the vip.sms and sb.sms files from the " i assume the h was "the but what do you want me to change??? Yesterday the new client worked but i was getting continual drops on the voice side. It had to disconnect and then reconnect for atc to hear me, BTW I could hear them but they could not hear me
I also had issues with inputting a xpdr code and it would not be recognized by atc

Should i completely remove the old p3d client ?? or the new one ??? or keep both.????

Lastly I cant reset the ptt., i hit the reset button and nothing happens?!

Hi Pete,

I also upgraded to P3Dv4 earlier this year and I am having many of the same problems you are, including being able to hear the controllers but them not hearing me. I posted a message on the Pilotedge forum in May (“Comm Issue”) but have not received any feedback.

I’m almost sorry I left FSX... the new graphics are great, but just about everything else has been a problem. Unfortunately I’m too invested in P3D to go back.

I’m looking for somebody who knows P3Dv4 well and is willing to help me work through these issues but have not been able to find anybody. I’ll be following your posts to see if they can help me.

Good luck and thx.

Joey check out a response I received last week from Keith
Search my posts in the client forum
There are a few clues there
Yesterday i deleted the new client and used the old one.
It worked only intermittently.
Today I deleted all of the clients and I’m startinf again
Im using w10 x64 p3d v4.3. I’m not turning back now
Btw I could hear Stx but they can’t hear me
I have to disconnect then it works again

Pain in butt! Good thing I don’t lose the sim scenario when I disconnect
We can’t be the only two people with this problem
Keith is generally super helpful. So let’s see where this goes.

I'm suggesting that you take the vip.sms and sb.sms files and take them out of play. You can do that by either renaming them to .bak files, or move them to another folder.

Should i completely remove the old p3d client ?? or the new one ??? or keep both.????


I have both installed...they both work fine. They can co-exist without issue.

Lastly I cant reset the ptt., i hit the reset button and nothing happens?!


There's not much to it in the new client...

1) hit the "SET NEW PTT KEY OR BUTTON" button,
2) a blue line of text will show up saying "Waiting for button or key press..."
3) hit your new PTT button or key
4) the screen should now say "Current PTT Assignment:" followed by the key/button in blue.
