Cannot see A2A P-40s and certain models of A2A T-6

Post by Paughco »

I fly with my pals in the A2A Misfit Squadron on Fridays and Sundays. We all update JoinFS whenever a new version is released for P3D; right now we're all on v3.1.2. This problem started after an update, but I can't remember which one, it's been going on for some time now.

I'm running P3D v5.2 on a Jetline computer that I've had since December 2016, but it's still running pretty good.

I can't see anybody in an A2A P-40, whether they're flying a P-40 or if I just try to substitute them into a P-40. If somebody shows up in a P-40 I have to substitute them into a Mustang or Spitfire, which works just fine, except they're in the wrong airplane. All the P-40s are standard A2A P-40s, no custom paint jobs here. Anybody other rthan me in a P-40 shows up as RED in the View, Aircraft window, and the only way I can get them to show up as GREEN is to substitute them into something other than a P-40. My A2A P-40s used to work some time back, but they don't work now. No changes have been made to the aircraft, or the aircract.cfg; the problem seems to have started when I installed an update to JoinFS.

I have a similar situation with the A2A T-6, except that I can see people in any A2A T-6 except for the Western Airlines version, the movie prop Zero version, or my personal T-6, the N7231C version. Everything else works (they show up as GREEN in the aircraft window), but they show up as RED for the Western Airlines, the Zero, and N7231C.

All my A2A aircraft are in the document folder, C:\Users\MyName\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\. I can see folks when they're in an A2A Cub, Connie, B-17, Bonanza, P-51, Comanche, etc., but I can't see anybody in an A2A P-40, or anybody in one of the aforementioned A2A T-6s.

I've checked the aircraft.cfg files very carefully, but can't find what is causing this problem. We're going to fly P-40s over Hawaii next Sunday, and I'd really like to get this resolved before then.

I'll attach the aircraft.cfg file for my T-6 below so maybe somebody can spot what is causing the problem on the Western Airlines, Zero, and N7231C versions.

======== end aircraft.cfg file (I left off all the stuff after [fltsim.n] because that's common to all the versions) ==============

Any thoughts or suggestions?

What does it say in the monitor window when a plane is added?

Peter: Thank you for your reply. I downloaded a repaint for the A2A T-6 from AVSIM and installed it in my A2A T-6 folder. Before installation of this new paintjob for my T-6, I scanned with JoinFS and had 362 aircraft. After installation of the new paintjob I had 363 aircraft. The additional lines added to the A2A T-6 aircraft.cfg file as shown below:

Re: Cannot see A2A P-40s and certain models of A2A T-6

Post by Paughco »

We flew our Pearl Harbo commemorative flight today. There were six of us, all flying A2A P-40s. Three of us were in Army 155, a P-40B, and the rest of us were in various US AAF P-40Cs. I could see all of my pals in their P-40s, and they all showed up as GREEN in the aircraft window! That was great! After we landed and took "the picture," I tried substituting one of the guys into another A2A P-40 skin. He went RED and I couldn't see his airplane. I tried switching him back into the P-40 model that he as in before, and he stayed RED and I couldn't see him.

Any idea what is causing this problem with the A2A P-40?

Graduating with Class 40-C at Randolph on 21 June 1940, he remained there as a flight instructor until July 1941 when he was allowed to resign his commission to join the American Volunteer Group, then forming in Burma. Flying as part of the AVG’s Third Pursuit Squadron, Smith was credited with one –and-one-half Sally bombes destroyed, another probably destroyed and four damaged in the first air raid on Rangoon, Burma on 23 December. Two days later, on Christmas Day, he downed two more bombers and an Oscar in a repeat raid on the Burmese capital. Moving to Loiwing, China he became an ace on 8 April 1942 with the destruction of two Oscars over the AVG base. He downed another Oscar two days later and completed his scoring with the AVG on 28 April with a final Oscar south of Hsipaw.

In 1939 he joined the army and attended Kacha Military Air Collage where he won his wings in 1941. Alexei Khlobystov's had a flair for taran attacks, three of his eight victories were by this method. On 13 December 1943, by which time he was leading an eskardrilya in the 20 GIAP, he was killed in action.

Have you done a model scan and made sure that this particular aircraft folder is included in the scan. When you load yourself into this aircraft what does it show as the model in the aircraft window?

Peter: Thank you for getting back.

I loaded myself into my A2A P-40, Army 155, and checked the View, Aircraft window on JoinFS. It shows me in "A2A Curtiss P-40B White 155," exactly as written in the "title=A2A Curtiss P-40B White 155" in the aircraft.cfg file, which is in C:\Users\Alan\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\A2A\SimObjects\Airplanes\WoP3_P40 folder.

I can substitute other nearby aircraft in the JoinFS aircraft window into any of the default P3D aircraft, and into any of the A2A aircraft, EXCEPT for any A2A P-40, or the A2A T-6 with the N7231C, Zero, or the Western Airlines repaints.

Thank you

It may be that A2A aircraft can not be injected in the simulator. Can they be injected with xPilot and have you ever seen them in the simulator as AI aircraft at all. I think their models are quite complex so it may be that they can not be injected as other aircraft can. You could substitute them for other similar models?

Peter: Thank you for getting back. Isn't xPilot a program for connecting X-Plane aircraft to VATSIM? A2A aircraft are all in P3D.

I've never seen an A2A aircraft as an AI aircraft. I can substitute most A2A aircraft for whatever my friends are flying when we're using JoinFS for MP flights, except for any A2A P-40 and three particular repaints of the A2A T-6.

Thank you
