    Re: Engine failure and restart while flying

    It's happened to me two or three times in the last two months: suddenly all thanks are at zero fuel and the engines stopped. If I rememer well it's related to a button pressed in FS-Flightcontrol.
    Do you use FS-Flightcontrol too?

    No i don't use Fs-Flightcontrol. Which tanks go to zero the FMGS tanks or the p3d tanks. In my case the p3d tanks are as it should be but the FMGS tanks they show zero fuel.

    Thank you for the tip "disabling running out of fuel in p3d". But unfortunately it didn't help. Because the tanks in p3d are still as they should be. Only in FMGS they go to zero and come back after a while. It can maybe be a connection problem. Maybe it is simconnect that cause this problem. I will continue searching. I have P3dv3 stay installed on my system. I made today a flight in p3d3 and i didn't have any problem with.

    HI

    As far as I can see this can be linked to a problem with simconnect.
    Do you use any other addon which uses simconnect?
    Do you use any software for remote control such as teamviewer, VNC etc?

    Hello jeehell,

    thank you for your reply. I don't use remote software. Teamviewer is installed but not in use anytime while flying. I use many addon that use simconnect, but how to find the error maker? I have no idea. I will try a flight without any simmconnect addon running and report.

    Hello again,

    i tried to make a flight but always the same failure. I made some screenshots to show you what happened when the mistake is coming on. The error disappears only when pausing the simulator for a while.


    As you can see in the pictures not only the fuel is going to zero, all parameters are not set right.

    Re: Engine failure and restart while flying

    Only problem is the fuel? if it happens inflight, do the pitch/bank update consistently on the PFD?
    Did you change anything with the aircraft addon I provide?
    On the last flight, did you try with only minimal hardware (joystick) and without other addons?
    Next time it happens, go in c:\A320FMGS\logs and retrieve the FMGSserverlog.txt, and try to put in on dropbox or similar so I can have a look.

    The problem is not only the fuel. All settings are lost. While the error the ND doesn't show the route, the flightlevel is set to 0 the fuel is set to 0. The error happens inflight, on ground and also before engine start.

    Hello Jeehell,

    the FMGSserverlog.txt is located here. I hope it can help. All addons are disabled. Only the joystick is activated.
