J G 926 Posted January 8, 2018 Report Share Posted January 8, 2018 For some considerable time I have used Plan-G with FSX, I love it! I have been using Plan-G on a second PC and use SimConnect to connect to FSX, but now I have installed P3D v4.1 and want to connect my Plan-G install to it via SimConnect. I have had a few problems and have yet to do this successfully. The following problems are those I have encountered together with the questions that they raise. I have added the P3D paths to the locations part and path to the P3D scenery.cfg . This I did by mapping a drive on the Plan-G PC and pointing the drive at the appropriate local drive on the P3D PC. (Drive X: points to Drive C: etc.) and then browsed to the files required. This method has always worked before. The database build is very rapid. The help file indicates that this usually indicates a fail. Returning to the Database Build screen shows that the DB build is available which perhaps seems to also point to a failure. Having said that, when the Build database runs I can see it going through ORBX directories ect. I cant connect to P3D. However the connect icon greys out and the disconnect button is available. It is clear that no data conversation is going on as the map doesn't move to where my aircraft is. A small black square with an upward pointing arrow appears in the top left corner of Plan-G. On a third PC on the network configured for P3D only I cant connect. The above raises these questions: Can I use the same install of P3D for both sims? (Two DBs?) It looks like I can do. What is the black square? In the FS Connection Parameters how do I check the Config Index against the PC with P3D on it? The FSX Computer and Server Port/Pipe are still in the SimConnect Settings (FSX) and have always worked well for me in the past. Any help would be good Quote Link to post Share on other sites
