I load up heli-manager and then load MSFS. I select the '47 and airport and load in. When I select ‘FLY’ there is a graphic on the cockpit saying ‘Please run Heli Manager’. The Heli Manager is running and says 'Awaiting Aircraft.
I have restarted MSFS, Restarted Heli manager, edited the SimConnect.xml to SimConnect.xmlxxx in the LocalCache folder. Run both MSFS and Heli Manager as Administrator. Nothing is working for me.
I have noticed that when I have selected the ‘47 in MSFS the heli manager is showing the correct screen with the joystick setup etc, but when I press ‘FLY’ the heli manager flicks between pages a few times and then stays on the Awaiting aircraft’ screen.
so far the only way I found was to restart the machine to get back up and running, however I am not finding a constant, sometimes the error on the first flight restart or change of aerodrome and other times the error does not happen.
For a while now, not just with the B47G, I have experienced something with MSFS that might have a similar cause. The aircraft loads up and occasionally the controls simply do not respond until i do a restart from the ESC menu. It isn’t exactly the same as the problem as stated in the OP, but there may still be a connection.
As it is a relatively quick workaround, to restart the flight, i have never got round to finding the cause and fixing it, but i strongly suspect that it is something to do with one or more of the mods in my Community folder. I have some time today, so I’ll see if i can make any progress, that might help. The challenge is going to be that the issue doesn’t occur every time a flight loads, so knowing i’ve fixed it might take a while.
Sorry, not had much time to try until today. I’m still having problems. I loaded it up this morning and it worked for 1 flight. I landed, changed airport and then was hit with the same problem. I’ve tried disabling anti-virus and firewall but that hasn’t worked. I found my community folder but there is nothing in it. What do i need to do with it?
I just rebooted my PC and loaded MSFS without loading HM (thought there is an icon in the tray showing it is running). I started a flight with the '47 and it worked fine, though I didn’t get the HM window showing at all. I landed and started another flight at a different airport and I got the in-cockpit ‘please run HM’ screen. It seems to work the first time after a reboot but stop working after the first flight evey time.
I made a video, just uploading it to youtube now. I’ll post a link when its uploaded.
I hate to be the bringer of bad tidings but it actually seems worse now
The first time I loaded MSFS after I installed the new HM it worked fine. I landed, changed airports and I was back to the same problem. I tried pressing the new button on HM but it didnt seem to do anything at all. I’ve shut down MSFS and HM, reloaded and still the problem. Also, I have tried rebooting (which previously allowed me to run it ok) but now that doesnt work either.
