P3D External View Issue Please Help

Postby joepoway » Fri Mar 09, 2018 10:06 pm

I have an issue when trying to switch to an external view in P3Dv4.1 with FlyInside.

When I switch from the virtual cockpit to an external view by either selecting it from the drop down or pressing the assigned S key I am sent out to the FI Desktop Menu view but it stays there and presents the "ensure that an aircraft is loaded and that the view is set to virtual cockpit". I can press the Shift+S key and get back to the virtual cockpit and all is fine in that view but no luck with the external views.

However something odd I found is that if I open any pop up window whether it's showing or hidden everything works fine and I can cycle through the external views just fine. To be specific the first time an external view is selected I briefly am bounced out to the FI desktop and then to a full screen external view but on subsequent switching after the first time it's automatic to the view. But if I close whatever pop up window I opened the external view again doesn't work.

I have had ChasePlane installed and have uninstalled it and uninstalled FI and reinstalled it even with deleting all the FlyInside hidden folders but it makes no difference. I have also deleted the P3D shaders, camera.cfg and P3D.cfg files and still no difference.

It's as though a window needs to be opened when Flyinside launches P3D that isn't happening to enable external views and the only way I can get them to work is by opening something manually first. My friends system does not require this so I know something is wrong or missing in my setup or P3D default startup.

Any help would be appreciated.

Joe can you send me a copy of your Flyinside config ? It's under the appadata/roaming/flyinside folder tree.

It’s been almost a week since I sent you the file you requested, did you get it and if so any feedback?

Waiting patiently

Must be one long trip, I would still like some input.
Also some input on my my other SSAA post to enable us to use this option.

Hi Joe,

Ssaa settings fix will be in the next build (shipping late April). For the view issue, I'm at a bit of a loss as we can't reproduce. If you have some time this week I can TeamViewer with you to hunt it down, and get you an early version of that build.

Shoot me an email dan@flyinside-fsx.com

Thanks,
Dan
Your friendly neighborhood developer!
