Hi Gary/Mark

Would you consider reviewing External Sim (after Vatsim and World Flight) to allow the program to work in conjunction with  GSX. Another words sending "engines are shut down and park brake is set" to P3d.
Just adds a little more immersion  to our flying.
Thank you in anticipation.

Hi, Mark
I have same problem .
I use 3 computer multi play.
1 prepar3d server, 2 aerowinx 747 client and the other is instructor computer and prepar3D atc map use.

I check this situation as I attached a image.

instructor station and other prepar3d atc map can not show aerowinx 744 AI and show AI information.

Hi,

please help me and check this point.

the source below is part of polsky 747 aircraft.cfg file of P3D Airplane file.
ExternalSimID = {3E6B47E7-C706-4A10-BC88-6E7C199ED5A6}
Category = ExternalSim
Setting two eliminates the multiplay radar and works well with Aerowinx.
Clear ExternalSimID = {3E6B47E7-C706-4A10-BC88-6E7C199ED5A6}

If  change Category = airplane, it will come out of multiplay radar normally.
It is not possible to link with Aerowinx.

I want to multi play link and show PSX 747 AI for other player's ATC map and addon Instructor monitor.

Is there currently any free way to insert aloft wind data (etc) to the PSX? I have access to Active Sky and PFPX should they be required.

Anyone able to help with this? I have tried turning firewall off. Tried using the mmc actions for firewall...

Two days ago I flew using PSX.NET a flight of roughly 8 hours. Everything worked flawlessly. However yesterday I ran into issues. The P3D would not link to PSX. After several restarts, firewall tuning, I got the p3d to sync. All went fine until I was about to land and opene P3D. Water everywhere... Looking at the data from P3D, the airplane had synced everything correctly (at least from what I saw) except the logitude data. Aka the plain flew in bullet straight line though replicated speed and altitude changes correctly.

Re: PSX.NET P3D ExternalSim
« Reply #685 on: Thu, 16 Jan 2020 00:53 »
I have the Lat/Lon = 0,0 issue on startup.  My setup:

Win 10
PSX 10.93 running as Server/Boost Server and client
Prepar3D v4.5.13
Posky 747 from p15 link
PSX.NET ExternalSim 2.5 installed as per instructions in the zip.

All are on the same PC.  PSX runs fine, and I've driven X-Plane 11 with XView on this same PC.  In P3D, however, I start surrounded by ocean :-(

The aircraft.cfg file appears to have been correctly configured:

Code: [Select]
[fltsim.0]
ExternalSimID={3E6B47E7-C706-4A10-BC88-6E7C199ED5A6}
[General]
Category=ExternalSim

I scoured the posts for this issue, but can't see an obvious solution.  Are there any known add-on conflicts?  P3D setting changes I need to do that I might have missed?

Thanks!

Hi Scott,

Every now and then I get this situation. To correct it I simply stop P3D ExternalSim Router then restart it. This always seem to correct the issue.

Do I need the Router if everything is on the same PC?  It didn't sound like it from the directions, so I did not configure or start it...

yes you do, this is from the instructions,,

Note: This is normally the same PC running your PSX boost instance (recommended). 
See section Example system diagrams in this document for ideas.

Run PSX.NET.P3D.ExternalSim.Router.Installer.msi
PSX.NET.P3D.ExternalSim.Configuration.Installer.msi (if not already installed)

There will now be a ‘PSX.NET’ folder on the Start Menu containing a 'P3D.ExternalSim.Router’ shortcut for running the router application.

This is also important,,

Order of starting applications:
1. PSX boost instance.
 
If you’re running a PSX boost instance, ensure there is a working connection to your main simulator instance.
 
2. ExternalSim Router.
 
Ensure that the ‘Boost’ and ‘PSX’ numbers in the ‘PSX Received Counts’ section is increasing (wait 20 seconds after router started before checking).  If not, check your <PsxBoostIP>, <PsxServerIP> and <PsxServerPort> settings are correct and restart router.
 
3. P3D instance(s) running PSX.NET P3D ExternalSim.
 
Data flows in 2 directions. Both directions need to be allowed through any firewall(s). Router to Client: If the P3D aircraft isn’t moving when PSX moves, this connection has been blocked by a firewall. Client to Router: If your P3D instance has established a successful connection then you will see it appear as a client in the router console output. If not, this connection has been blocked by a firewall.

Thanks - I clearly misread...will install the router module and re-test.

Appreciate the help!

Well, I installed PSX.NET ExternalSim Router, but I cannot run the app.  When I attempt to start it, a command prompt box opens and I get a fleeting glimpse of an "unhandled exception error" before the box closes. I tried uninstalling and re-installing, as well as restarting the PC, to no avail.  Nor did running it as an admin work.  Help!

Thanks,

Scott

Instead of starting it by double-click, try starting a CMD box first and then navigating (cd) to the folder and manually typing the name to start it. This should allow you to actually read the panic message.

Unfortunately, this did not work.  The program opened in a *second* window, and snapped shut quickly.  By running it a few times, I caught glimpses of the words "parameter" and "height" amongst the gobbledy-gook.

I did another uninstall, aided by manually removing vestigial folders in Program Files (x86) and the user roaming  section, then reinstalled.  Still no go.  I tried installing it on my Win 10 laptop (same update level) and it opened perfectly.

I want to get this solved correctly, but perhaps a workaround would be to run the Router component on my laptop and point it to the desktop PC running PSX, while pointing P3DExternalSim over to the laptop Router?

I just don't understand why the router won't even open on my pretty typical Win 10 box  :'(

Hi Scott,

I have almost exactly the same single PC WIN10 configuration as you though I also run a second PC with the FO view.  I too had the same problem on initial setup.  First the quick view of the PSX.NET Router window and then the Lat/Long 0,0 Ocean view.  I fixed it after a while and I'm sorry to say I can't remember the fix.  Nevertheless here is how I start and connect PSX and P3D.  Firewall is off on both PC's.

1) Start PSX on PC1 with the Main Server running
2) Start PSX as client on PC2 (FO Setup)
3) Start P3D (I remember initially having to ensure Slew Mode and Pause on Task Switch is unchecked)
4) Start ActiveSky
4) Start PSX Boost Server on PC1
5) Start PSX.NET Router

What is weird is it does not seem to be a connection issue as you can't even run the router? Just a wild guess but do you have .NET framework installed on the desktop computer?

Yep, I verified I have .net fw v 4.8.  FWIW, Bacars works perfectly.

Still troubleshooting...

I have it working, though I'm not quite sure exactly what was wrong.  Here is what I did, in case someone down the road encounters a similar problem.

I suspected my issue had to do with my HDTV third monitor, if only because of the "parameter" and "height" text I saw briefly when the app crashed.  Prior to reinstalling PSX.NET P3D ExternalSim again, I unchecked the "Make this my main monitor" box for the HDTV (setting it to my 27" monitor), changed it's zoom setting from 150% to 100%, and then inactivated it.  I then reinstalled PSX.NET and ran the configurator.  I started PSX and found that my display changes caused its windows to become oversized, and its zoom settings to be too great. Oddly, my USB preferences were also scrambled - both axes and buttons.  I restored the HDTV, closed and re-opened PSX, but no change.   I reconfigured and saved everything, then fired up PSX.NET P3D ExternalSim Router....and it opened!  P3D opened, and loading the PSX 737 worked perfectly - I was able to fly the tutorial flight without a hitch.

After all that, I was disappointed to find that my frame rates were poor in P3D - about 12-20, and improved only marginally with significant reduction in P3D display options.  I was getting 20-30 with my PMDG 737NGXu, and 35-60 in X-Plane 11 with PSX and Xview.  So it looks like PSX/P3D combo will have to wait for my new simming PC ;-)

I'm using ExternalSim to connect PSX to P3D, using the BOAC model provided. Whenever I switch the beacon to "Both" the P3D model's flaps fully deploy and vice versa. Can anyone tell me what to do to avoid this?

Good day gents,

I recently switched from FSX to P3d and therefore trying to have P3D.EternalSim to work on my set up.

I kind of managed to have everything up and running, given my very weird set-up:

Only one computer running Archlinux and one Virtual Machine (VM) on that computer running Win10 via GPU passthrough. The main PSX is on the linux box, while P3D is on the VM.
All seems to be more or less working well, except for some very strange behaviour of P3D.EternalSim.


Every now and then, P3D resets himself (reloading Terrain Data) but then it places the aircraft on the ground and on a very weird map location.
For example, I was making a hold near EHAM (over DENUT fix) and after reloading, P3D set the aircraft close to Alaska, in the middle of the ocean at altitude zero.
I figured out that he kept the last latitude (Around N51 20.3) but the longitude was set to W176 (which funny enough is the complement to 180 of DENUT's latitude at E003 54.3).

In order to get everything back properly, I have to stop the router P3D, and restart both.


I am trying to figure out what can trigger such a behaviour. Seems this happens when P3D tries to update some terrain info (or time synch) but it might happen a few seconds after P3D was launched, or on the contrary after a few minutes or hours.

If someone has any clue on where to look or what I could to to debug further, it would be much appreciated !

-Stephan

Hi Stephan,

Check your firewall setting in Windows 10. Go to settings, update and security, windows security (on the left side) then Firewall & network protection. I have Domain network 'on', Private network 'off', Public network 'on'. Also it was mentioned in a previous thread to check your P3D traffic settings and turn them off to see if that helps? This can be found in P3D, Options, General, Traffic.
