Hello Everybody, I found a strange bug regarding freezing displays in the virtual cockpit. It happened to me twice while flying from Lisbon (LPPT) to Madeira (LPMA) and back. Every time the aircraft is over open waters, with out any airport in the vicinity, the displays are freezing after switching views. In fsx, when there is no airport around (for example over the ocean) you loose the tower view, because there is no tower near by. In this case, when im hitting the "s" key I only get cockpit and spot view. But this is normal and happens on every aircraft. But on the A320, when I'm switching views in this case, the displays in the virtual cockpit are frozen. But the pop up panels are still working and the airplane is flying normal. I can also turn knobs and push buttons. But the buttons are not reacting to the fact that i push them. When I'm pushing the autobrake button for example, the system is recognizing the push but the button is not lighting up (If you know what i mean). Also the displays on the FCU are frozen. I can still change the heading and everything but the number stays the same. But he strange thing is, when I'm approaching the coast and the tower view becomes available again, everything recovers and the display aren't frozen anymore. Today I tried to replicate the error. I took off in Lisbon, climbed to FL350 and just flew over the ocean (heading 270) in standard fsx weather. At a distance of approx. 160nm from LPPT I switched the view and the displays are frozen again. I also noticed that the sound changed an the engine sound was to loud (buzzsawing noise like it is during takeoff). I tried turning the airplane in heading mode and it works as described above. I took a screenshot to show the frozen displays (see below). I also noticed, that hitting the F9 button twice solves the problem and switching views brings it back. It's kind of funny to do that. ;-) Can anyone else try to replicate the bug? My configuration: fsx SP2 (boxed), directX9, windowed mode, vers. 188.8.131.52 __________________________________________________________________ I have another problem with the DME not working properly. I just tested it in Hamburg but for some reason the A320 is not displaying the distance of the ALF DME (115.80). Every other plane does. I took a screnshot of the A320 with the radio tuned and one of a standard fsx plane. Thank you in advance. Greetings Paul
This is for people who have problems with Ezdok camera - freezing or not responding to keyboard inputs after some time in flight: Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\EZCA", right click on "EZCA.exe" and select "Properties". Go to Compatibility Tab, click on "Change settings for all users" and tick "Run this program as an administrator". Then click ok, apply, ok until you clear all windows. (not related to this problem, but it's a great thing to do with FSX.exe too) Optional: I belive what i wrote above should be enough, but i also moved my EZCA folder out of "C:\Program Files (x86)" folder, there are some windows security issues with Program Filles folders. So, if you still get some Ezdok problems, you may try to move it out of this folder, to another drive or simple to other location in C if you have only one drive. If you do so, you need to open exe.xml(located in "C:\Users\"YourUserNameHere"\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX") with notepad and manually change path for EZCA.exe to corespond with new location, and then run config.exe once(it's located inside EZCA folder) - it will register / update components automatically, you don't need to prees anything. BTW, by doing this, my FSX starts a bit faster - becouse Ezdok starts faster in fact, and FSX is not waiting for Ezdok anymore. I saw a lot of posts about Ezdok problems when using complex airliners, so maybe it's going to be useful for some of you. This finally fixed Ezdok issues for me.
