I have released an update over the weekend.
V 1.3.1.1

Reading through the post again...

I'm not sure I've fixed the Xplane frequency issue.

If somebody could let me know it'll be appreciated.

Hey Roo,

Not sure about X-Plane but 1.3.1.1 will no longer retain FSX settings, and does not show Sim Online, regardless of network. Tried a clean install but no help. Settings specifically are FSX/P3D and Auto Com Switch. Had to go back to 1.3.0.9 to operate.

Thanks Tony.
I didn't think I'd touched any of that.
Leave it with me and I'll go through it all shortly.

2.0.0.1 released with some very big changes.

Let me know the issues so I can tweak it.

It will look the same but should be much more reliable.

Hey Roo,

I was out of town for the last couple of weeks and have just loaded ver 2.0.0.3. Unfortunately I'm still having the same problem that I had with 1.3.1.1. I did a complete uninstall of 1.3.0.9, then installed 2.0.0.3. What I found was without FSX turned on at all, I inserted my call sign, selected my joystick button, then selected config. I then selected my sound device, put a check in FSX, Auto COM Switch, SIMCOM X and On FREQ Change, then selected save. At this time I have not selected the PWR to ON. I then closed the SIMCOMM app, (to see if the settings were retained). I reopened the app all settings remained checked.

Next, I powered on the SIMCOMM app. Indications were PWR: Amber, ON: Green, SERVER: SCX Mode, PTT: Button 3. SIM: showed Offline in Red, Voice: Online in Green, and Mode: SCX in Green. I selected config and all the settings in the first paragraph were still checked, except Auto COM Switch. I checked the Auto COM box again and selected save. I checked config, and the Auto COM had deselected again. I powered off the app, saved all settings again, rechecked to see if the setting retained (they did), then shut the app down.

I started FSX and loaded a flight. I started the app, checked the config before powering on, (all setting were still retained). I then turned the the power on. Indications were PWR: Red, ON: Green, Server: SCX Mode, Sim: Offline in Red, Voice: Online in Green and Mode: SCX in Green.
Checked config, all setting were now unchecked except SIMCOM X. I then selected all the settings again, saved them and then rechecked, and FSX, and ON FREQ CHANGE remained selected, however SIM: remained Offline in Red. If I powered off then back on, all setting again unchecked themselves.

I uninstalled 2.0.0.3, using Revo uninstaller, then reinstalled 1.3.0.9, and everything worked as expected.

Hope this info helps in isolating my problem.

For what it may be worth, I can concur with the problem in the most recent release.

Thanks both.
Leave it with me and I'll check 1.3.0.9 against the latest.

Does the Log show that Simconnect connected or failed?

C:\Program Files(x86)\simcomX\log.txt

I know I've told the autoswitch box to untick if Simcom X isnt connected to a sim, so that explains part of it.

The FSX/P3D tickbox will also untick after X second if it's been unable to connect to a sim.
I know Peter also does this with JoinFS.
If we dont stop it trying to connect with no sim available it causrs the form to hang as it keeps trying.

Best practice is what Tony did on his 3rd try.

Start a sim and flight.
Start Simcom X.
Tick the FSX/P3D Box (connected to sim should immediately turn green).
Then tick the autoswitch.

It looks like as you say it's not connecting, so I'll figure out why shortly.

Ofcourse it works fine for me when I test with FSX SE :roll:

Hey Roo,

I did a reload on V2.0.0.3 and took a screenshot of my log.txt. FSX is up and running with a flight loaded the FSX/P3D box checked. Auto Com switch was selected prior to powering on, but deselected itself and Sim remained offline. Hope this helps and thanks in advance for the great support.

Thanks Tony.
A picture tells a thousand words etc etc...
Very helpful.

I've got sometime to myself tomorrow evening so I'll have a look then.

P.S
I'm assuming you're using FSX Steam?
Do you know what version of SimConnect you're using?

Does it connect to the sim without selecting AutoSwitch?

Roo,

Not at home right now, but I am running WIN 7, box version FSX, with Acceleration pack which includes SP2. Not sure of the of the version of SimConnect, but I'll get that info once I get home from work.

I have not been able to get a connection regardless of what is checked. I can get the FSX/P3D box to stay checked, but the Sim still shows offline. The Auto Switch does not stay selected with FSX running and a flight loaded. The only time it stays selected is with power off on the app and FSX shutdown.
