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?
